And this story which is praised all over the world,
Makes all   parts   of my toungue sweet.

2.Ramanin   kadayaye   ungal,
Chevi kulira paadiduvom, kelungal ithaye  ,
Inikkuthu  navellam    uraithidumpodinile  ,

So that    your ears would become cool.

4.Ayothi mannan arum thvathaal ,
Avan manaivi   Kausalya  , Kaikeyi , Sumathrai  ,
Karuvinile uruvaanaar   Rama Lakshmanar,
Kanivulla  Bharathan  , SArtrugnan  naalvan.

4.   Due to the great penance   of the king of Ayodhya,
His wives,. Kausalya  , Kaikeyi and Sumathra  ,
Became pregnant with Rama and Lakshmana ,
The very soft natured  Bharatha   and Sathrugna   the fourth one.

5.Nattinar pothrave naalvarum  pala kalai  ,
AAthalum adaya  , mannan valathu vandhane  ,
Kattinil  Kousigan    yagathai kaakave  ,
Kanmani  Rama Lakshmanarai   anuppinane,

THadagai   Subahuvai   tharayil veezthiye  ,
Thavasigal   yagam kathu  aasi kondanare ,
Padayil  Akalikai  sapathai theerthapin  ,
Seer perum   mithilai nagar naadi chendranare,
Veethiil chendridum  pothole raman,
Seethayai   kanni mada  meethile Kandaan,
Kadalinaal  iruvar kankalum  Kalanthana  ,
Kadalinaal iruvar kangalum kalanthana  ,
Kanniyai vil odithu   sondhamum kondaan.

5,All the four of them learned various arts with appreciation of people  ,
And   king   brought them up so that they became very able.
For the sake of protecting   the Yaga of Kausiga,
He sent  Rama and Lakshmana who were his darlings,
He sent Rama and Lakshmana   who were his darlings,
They fell THadaga and Subahu on the earth,
And protected Yaga of sages and got their blessings,
And on the way after   getting rid of the curse of Ahalya,
They went in search of the prosperous city of Mithila.
When  Rama was walking on the road,
He Saw sita in her maiden’s     stage in her home,
And due to love both   their eyes mingled,
And due to love both their eyes mingled,
After breaking the bow he made that main his own.

6.Anavathaal   arivizhantha Parasuraman,
Aganthai thani  adakki  Raman vethri kondaan,
Arum pudalvan  veerathai kanda mannan,
Alavilla ananda nilayai kandaan.

6.Raman then destroyed the pride of Parasurama,
Who had lost his wisdom due to Egotism,
Anfd the king seeing the valour of his darling son,
Attained a state  of immensurable   joy.

7.Jagam pugazhum punya kathai ramanin   kathaye, ungal,
Chevi kulira   padiduvom kelungal ithaye,
Jagam pugazhum punya kathai ramanin   kathaye, ungal,

And then    that king Dasaratha   fixed an auspicious day,
To celebrate   the crowning  his darling   son Rama.

8. Mannavan Dasarathan  kanmani Ramanukku ,
Mani mudi choota    naal kurithane.
Makkal  yaavum magizhvudan nagaraye  ,
Makara thoranathaal alangarithare,
Mandarai bodhanayaal manam mari Kaikeyi ,
Mani mudi Bharathan  choodi naatai aalavum,
Vanathil Raman pathinangu aandukaal ,
Vaazhavum  mannanidam varamathu kettal,
Antha chollai ketta mannar ,
Marana moorchai adaintha pinnar ,

Thambi BHarathanukku magudathai  thanthaar endral,
Chanchalamillamal Anchala vannanum,
SAmmatham  thaaye  yena vnangi chendraan,
Vinchiya kopathaal  vegunde villedutha ,
THambi ilakkuvanai  santham aakkinaan,
Ilayavanum Janakiyum  nizhal  pola thodarave,
Maravuru tharithu Raman chelvathu kandu,
Ka;angi nattu makka;  kanneer chinthiye.

8. And then    that king Dasaratha   fixed an auspicious day,
To celebrate   the crowning  his darling   son Rama.
And all the people with gret joy,
Decorated   the town with fish like hangings,
Kaikeyi whose mind was   changed by Mandhara,
Wanted BHaratha to get crowned and rule the kingdom,
And that Rama to live in forest   for fourteen  years,
And requested these   boons from the king,
AS son as he heard this when the king,
Entered in to a fatal swoon ,
She  made others to call Rama  ,
And told him that king wanted him to go to the forest ,
And also gave his crown to BHaratha,
And without any botheration    the black coloured one  ,
Told that he is agreeable to it and saluted his mother  and went away.
And when due to  very great anger, when Lakshmana took the bow,
He calmed his younger brother Lakshmana,
And then with Janaki and his younger brother  following him like a shadow,
When Rama was going away wearing a dress of wooden hide ,
The people   of the  county  were upset  and shed tears.

9. Kalangi nattu makkal kanner chinthiye,
Idhayangal povathendru   thaduthanar chendre  ,
Aaruthal kooriye   Kar mukhil vannan ,
Anbudan avargalidam   vidayum kondaane.
Annayum thanthayum chonna chol kaakave,
Annalum   kanakathai naadi chendraane.

9.  When the extremely upset  citizens  shed tears,
And went and stopped them , saying their heart was going away,
And then That Rama who has colour  of rainy cloud   consoled them,
And with love took leave  from   all of them,
And thus to  protect the words told by his father and mother,
That great one    went away seeking the forest.
