Old Tamil Poetry

Translations of Tamil Poetic works that span 2000 years

Thirukkural – 1102

An ailment’s cause and cure differ; for the misery
caused by this girl, she herself is the cure.

பிணிக்கு மருந்து பிறமன்; அணியிழை
தன்நோய்க்குத் தானே மருந்து

For any other ailment what causes it and what cures it are two different things. But for the love sickness caused by this girl, she herself is the cure.

பிணி  – disease

பிறமன் – external

அணியிழை – jewellery wearing girl
