To make a glass cup
It takes few minutes,
But to break it up,
It takes split seconds.

This story is from the famous epic Mahabharat and has been retold by many authours in several languages. The Father of Nation, Mahatma Gandhi loved this story for its moral that speaks of faith in the truth, honesty and courage. Some 600 years ago, a famous Tamil Poet Veerakavirayar wrote in Tamil Harichandran Puranam in the Tamil Venba style. He was an Aasu Kavi (Spontaneous Poet) next to Kalamegam of ancient times. It is next to impossible to translate his work in English word by word. He has written more than 1000 verses running to more than 600 pages. I have, however, brought in some of his excellence in about 76 pages in my own simple style for the reading pleasure of the world poetry lovers. The readers are requested to send their comments to my email address: email@example.com, for which I will be grateful to them. The story goes starting with a prayer song to Gods in the heaven.
Prayer to Lord Ganesh.

A cow was tied to a peg
But allowed to go on its legs.
Its rope moved in cycle.
It grazed inside this circle,
The day’s newspaper shook my heart.
I can only shed a tear on my part.
A heartless father shot his daughter.
It was like an animal slaughter.
A rich man built up a stadium,
In a ground to play every game.
On the day of inauguration,
There was a big congregation.
Gautama Buddha was born,
In the year 560 BC, as a son
To King Suddhodana, his father,
And Queen Maya, his mother.
Late one night, an old man
Came with his old woman
And his servant to visit
Thyagaraja, the Saint.
