Translation - A piece of land
I crave a piece of land,
Oh! Parasakthi!
I crave a piece of land...

build me a palace grand
with sundecks and picturesque pillars;
everything in pristine colors.
And near the well,
the long pinnate leaves 
and the tender coconut dwell.

Her woes weren't on her life in siege 
But the forerunner of fate's besiege

As faceless men stalked her in dark.

Other half silent in fright of a regime,
