கடைக்கண் பார்வை

அன்று - நீ

கடைக்கண் பார்வையால்
என்னை மயக்கினாய்

இன்று - நீ

கடையை* கண்ணால் பார்த்தாலே
எனக்கு மயக்கம் தான்.


* Shopping
=================================

Here is an approximate English translation. Hope it helps Amrita.

Those days, I fainted whenever you saw me
With your beautiful eyes

These days I faint, whenever you see Shopping Malls
With your beautiful eyes

I know it sucks, but ...I am sorry.!

Mr. Narayanan:

Had a hearty laugh at reading this blog, also the comments of fellow bloggers.

Very rarely, we have occasions to laugh in life these days.

Thanks
