It Is An Oddity That The Struggling Life Is Retained In The Body With Nine Holes! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

O' girl who wears the beautifully designed ornaments!
..It is not a wonder for the icy cold water leaking

without being retained in the small pot with a hole!
..It is a wonder when it is retained in a pot with a hole!

Is it not an oddity, something anew, that the struggling life
..is being retained in the body which has nine holes?

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Hi,
This poem 'It is an oddity that the struggling life is retained in the body with nine holes! ' is a translation by me of a poem from Tamil literature 'nanneRi'

வருந்தும் உயிர்ஒன்பான் வாயில் உடம்பில்
பொருந்துதல் தானே புதுமை - திருந்திழாய்
சீதநீர் பொள்ளல் சிறுகுடத்து நில்லாது
வீதலோ? நிற்றல் வியப்பு.12 - நன்னெறி
