“Ariyatha Tamizha, Un Ariyamai Pizhaiyal, Un Adaiyalam Izhanthal, Nee Medhuvaga Azhivai, Un Adaiyalam Izhanthal, Un Thai Naatil Neeyum Oru, Agathiyai Maariduvaai. Idhu maatta pathina pirachanai illa naatta pathina pirachanaiyada. Naatil porulatharam veelum naamum edukkanum pichaiyada” (Tamil). Tamizha, because of your unawareness, you will slowly lose your identity and will slowly come to an end and with your identity lost, you will become a refugee in your own homeland. This is not a bull issue, it is a country issue. Country economic will fall and we will beg for rest. – Lyric by Hiphop Tamizha.
