THAIP PONGAL! To wish or not to wish?
Pongkal is overflow in abundance or with heat
Abundance is aim but not abubdant Eelam heat!
Neither sacrifice today for tomorrow nor tomorrow for today
Off the heat in Tamil Eelam life must go on
On this joyous day let thoughts be translated to deeds
Weed out the unwanted speed up the wanted
So that next year Pongkal Festival will be real.
Long before metamorphosis of rocks
We matured Tamils have lived some say
Rice with farming appeared in the land
Life with a code of conduct man founded
Was looking for green pastures
Journeyed on foot then - later
Words and language appeared in the world
Tamils provided culture and made the world glow.
Harvest Feast(Thaip Pongkal)
Milk Rice the Golden child came - granting
immeasurable ecstacy in her cooking
Farmers with the beauty of lion dream
a picturesque memory this new year gleam.
Elevated threshing floor courtyard the face-where
month of January gave love's kiss with rice share
abundance in red rice and charity - sweet
to the tongue January child glad to meet.
With the plough he tills the land - the ploughman
is the old man ladder of progress of all human.
Dark clouds and sun our life - milk rice
is dream field's harvested crop of rice.
Red sugar cane and saffron aplenty - flood
of happiness to sweep our country.
Rise, rise milk rice - bring smile
to the face of the poor, so rise milk rice.
