the father who dwells in Atikai Vīraṭṭāṉam on the northern bank of Keṭilam!
you do not cure my disease which is giving me pain like the god of death.
I do not know that I did many cruel acts intentionally to get this disease.
Civaṉ who has a bull!
I bow to your feet only, always night and day without leaving them.
inside my belly.
to disable me by binding together with the intestines.
I who am your slave could not bear the pain
you must admit me as your slave removing the disease.
