Poorakkali A Kerala Art. - Poem by Gangadharan nair Pulingat..
Kerala the great place of martial arts
Folklore of various ones, the pride
Here now it is the time of Poorakkali
A great martial art in sanctity
The temple premises Poorakkali takes place
Kerala the birth place of scholars of sanskrit
The birth place of folklore artists in fame
Poorakkali it is marvelous ever to enjoy
The poorakkali Panikkar, or Teacher and guide
Sings the lyrics, songs, in such folklore tune
The players makes it wonderfully playful
Their body language and steps in rhythms
Stories taken from the epics makes the images
The hearers are familiar in the stories
The perfection of art of poorakkali
There we enjoy this folklore as our own
The finality of the scholarly talents are judged
In the final day of 'MarathuKali'or competitive play
The 'Panikkars' or teachers, or scholars
Makes their own arguments in verbal meanings
Proficiency of language, epics, there visible
Poorakkali mixed with classic and folklore ways
Kerala the place of martial arts and folklore
Here there is the unity of people in plays
Their sweat and efforts can't be missed
The great truthful living inspiring in plays
'Natyasasthra'or art of drama India inherits
The great sage 'Bharathamuni', s own contribution
A part of this classic study is relevant
In Poorakkali the art of classic and folklore here.
The great enjoyment of physical and mental activity
That poorakkali gives the players in stages.
