the father in Atikai Vīraṭṭāṉam on the bank of the river Keṭilam which is full of roaring water!
you covered your body with a skin of an elephant flayed and wet with blood;
you are capable of dancing in the cremation ground outside dwelling places, using it as a stage.
think of that act of pressing down the arakkaṉ who roared under the big mountain and then granting your grace hearing him chant Cāma Vētam.
If you think of that even if I get up falling down, rolling and being irritated.
you relieve my pains
As you do not think of that you do not relieve my pains.
