Poet's Notes about The Poem

Hi, This poem 'A Brahman wins by tactics' is a translation of a Tamil poem from NaanmaNik katikai 53

எருதுடையான் வேளாளன்; ஏலாதான் பார்ப்பான்,
ஒருதொடையான் வெல்வது கோழி; உருவோ
டறிவுடையாள் இல்வாழ்க்கைப் பெண்என்ப; சேனைச்
செறிவுஉடையான் சேனா பதி.

    As we have so many words to describe a noun or a verb in Tamil, it is quite interesting to read the version of the Tamil poem. Well written..Enjoyed reading it! (Report) Reply

    Enjoyed this a lot, perhaps the English translation reads a bit uneasy, needs some work, (Report) Reply
