The Greatness.

Hail to my mother  tongue.

Has words for every detail,

every relationships, every feeling

a rarity in other languages


Uncles, maternal and paternal

have different connotations,

so do aunts, sisters and brothers

elder and younger.


Happiness, grief, take expressions

deliver dramatics at times

veiled in most circumstances

interesting in a way.


It is Tamil, an ancient dialect,

extends a sway unparalleled.

Sense a pride of belonging

unable to draft in verse.
