Thith tha pronounces the nattuvanar ( dance master)
in comes Shiva .
Thith thai enters Umayal the chitrakoodam ( concert hall)
The master continues with the jathis (steps)
Shiva and Umayal alternating in the course,
dancing all the way.
Shiva races, Umayal follows,
The male fascinates, the lady entices.
A challenge thrown, a fiery competition..
The Devas watch with eyes wide open.
The asuras ( the bad ones) fear Shiva’s dancing
Heaven rocks as the momentum picks up.
A tremor is felt, The dancer and danseuse
vie, throw intrinsic formats at each other
perform with exactness.
Earth unable to bear the pressure seems to collapse.,
trees uproot, rivers flood, oceans overwhelm
mountains stumble. The divine couple
continue with passion, dancing in style.
Thith thalangu thaka thom cries the Nattuvanar.
Shiva raises his leg above the head.
Umayal being a female pauses.
Shiva takes her in his arms.
