Yes indeed it just really flowed .

Tx nadhasudha , I just thought in general when some one writes as a rebuttal , we are bit constrained on what the original writer has told , and something in me told that ponbhairavi can do much much much better when he writes a new leaf writeup. Thank you, this is exactly what I was expecting. Though there is a bit very slight tinge of sarcasm that may not go well with all musicians taste, but I guess every musician will have a hearty :lol: :lol: (Is it not ErOde )

I donot know if Bhairavi sabha in Pondy really gives award , but musicians in future will be in a bit of dharmasangadam in getting any awards from bhairavi ;) .

Might be a tall order to request sridhar-rang to translate - looks like it will lose some of us with these posts in Tamil...

Done Ravi. It is a silEDai (SlEsha / double entendre) that praises Ponbhairavi as well as you ;)

Please check it out:

I am back in the pavilion and read the postings in this and TMK thread. While I am extremely grateful
to the members for their kind sentiments towards me,I feel very uncomfortable with a thread in my name. In all sincerity and humility I request you to please change the heading of the thread as : "multifaceted personalities of the Rasikas forum."please.
I am amazed by the skill of Sridhar_rangfor the sledai kavithai and the prestidigitation of cml who has with very little touches made it encompass three persons( Three in one !!!) This sledai kavidai is a speciality of tamil May be it is there in sanskrit but I wonder whether it exists in western literature. The skill of the poet is to link up மொட்டை தலை and முழங்கால். I remember partly a famous one which applies in toto to banana fruit and snake and I request our forum poets to complete it and share it with our members.

Ponbhairavi:
My humble effort..
நஞ்சிருக்கும் தோலுரிக்கும் நாதர் முடி மேலிருக்கும்
வெஞ்சினத்தில் பல் பட்டால் மிளாதே - அஞ்சியதை
ஓடி ஒளிப்பார்க்கு நலம் சேரும், பயம் தீரும்
தேடி அதை தீர்ப்பார் தமக்கு.

( Snake) Those who get scared (அஞ்சியதை) and hastily hide (ஓடி ஒளிப்பார்க்கு) will be comforted(நலம் சேரும்), (and) their fear will be over (பயம் தீரும்) if they find it(தேடி அதை) and kill it off(தீர்ப்பார்)!

(Banana)Those who hastily hide it (ஓடி ஒளிப்பார்க்கு) being scared (அஞ்சி) (from others who may steal it) will have (temporary) comfort(நலம் சேரும்); however the banana (பயம் colloquial for பழம்) will be exhausted(தீரும்) if others find it(தேடி அதை) and finish it off(தீர்ப்பார்)!

The title has beeen changed to accommodate the request by Sri Rajagopalan. Now Rasikas can add anecdotes about other interesting members of this Forum!
How about our Pratyaksham Bala (PB) who has been hiding for a while :D

CML you could have left this thread title remain as a tribute to Sri Ponbhairavi, there's one on Arasi, if I'm not mistaken. I echo the sentiments of V Mahalingam in post 33 in honoring Sri Ponbhairavi - Rajagopalan with a separate thread.

I see his discomfort with his name being the very humble person he is re. Title -- could have removed just the name and kept the title something like as MFP (Multi-faceted personality) : Translator of French Literature to Tamil.

Could always have a series thread - MFP - (with next name/attribute) - one for each member-person - that way the recognition and clear title separates the persons while browsing and reading instead of this generic lumping and having to go through posts to find a different person. Just a suggestion because this thread with other persons *will* get cluttered.

back again the first thing I should do is to express my gratitude to rajesh ( bhairavi does not confer any "birudu") MV,CRama ( am sorry to have missed you as I was out of town, my cell no 9443799572 may be useful the next time you pass by Puducherry), MKRamasubramanian, Punarvasu, Smala( the english translation would indeed loose many nuances especially with names,designations etc ( for example the word "theerthangudi" ) and the humour would disappear once I start explaining!!) Mahavishnu, Ranaganayaki , rshankar, cml, and the inexhaustible sridhar_rang who instead of a birudu adorned me with a sledai kavi.

Now that we are among poets perhaps a comparison between Victor Hugo and Subramania Bharathi may be of interest
frenchliterature. angelfire.com--19th century-victor Hugo and scroll down to page 71-72.
The plight of the life of fishermen(even to-day ) is best brought out by his poemநடுக்கடலில்-நள்ளிரவில்- further down at pages 79-81
http://media.angelfire.lycos.com/2734881/1864967.pdf
P71-72 and page 79-81

I read the venba thread in leisure and I found Arasi's poem about me ( post 246).I cannot understand how I failed to see it on my return so far. My thanks and apologies to Arasi. Her few lines depict my nature perfectly
:" Guard your health and your words "
"adikkadi veen vambil mAttikoLvar ".
this clearly shows how keenly she has read all my posts and their fall- outs. If she comes to how about the Veen vambu and the hostilities I have faced when I started Bhairavi... Years have not made me wiser.

Arasi,
The special feature of a perfect sledai kavithai is that it is applicable to both பாம்பு and வாழைப்பழம்
