A Great Poetry For Social Reform - Poem by Gangadharan nair Pulingat..

In the period of local rulers and Kings
Kingdoms, landowners, money lenders
When the society was upper and lower streams
Not there the middle portion occupied
There lived a great poet in Kerala, India
A great poet, Satirically criticized establishment
His poetry tried its best to reveal the truth
The division of labor, exploitation,
The aggressiveness of ruling elites
The extravagance of feudal land lords
Over enthusiasms of paid up militias
The real dismay of the poor people
The exploitation of the poor farmers
A satirist he was made himself a dance firm
Limited, simple and colorful costumes
He jumped in stages everywhere in Kerala
The art form that interested by Kings and subjects
The poor and elites, satisfactorily he told
To change the social fabric, to be kind
To be frank, to upright the values
The medium he used was the common man's
The clear Mother tongue, Malayalam
Ottam thullal, or running, jumping, dancing
Making different body languages,
Imitating, making fun on audiences
The wonderful Nambiar thullal stories
He took stories from the treasure of epics
And used as a tool for social reform
Kerala, the people ever grateful
To the great artist, the poet Kunchan Nambiar.
Poems he used for social reform and change
To alleviate the burden of poverty of poor.
