PUDHIYA MUGAM | NETRU ILLATHA MATRAM LYRICS | ENGLISH MEANING

Netru Illatha Matram Ennathu,
Katru En Kathil Etho Sonnathu,

What is this change which wasn’t there yesterday?
The wind whispered something in my ear.

Ithu Than Kadhal Enbadha, Ilamai Pongivitatha,
Idhayam Sindhivitatha, Sol Maname,

Is this love? Has the youth aroused?
Has the heart spilt? Tell me, my mind.

Kadavul Illai Endren, Thayai Kannum Varai,
Kanavu Illai Endren, Asai Thondrum Varai,
Kadhal Poi Endru Sonnen, Unnai Kannum Varai,

Denied God till I saw mother.
I denied dreams until desires sprout.
I denied love until I met you.

Kavithai Variyin Suvai, Artham Puriyum Varai,
Gangai Neerin Suvai, Kadalil Serrum Varai,
Kadhal Suvai Ondru Thane, Katru Veesum Varai,

Denied poetry till I grasp the meaning.
The taste of Ganga water remains till it reaches the sea.
The taste of love alone remains until the wind blows.

Netru Illatha Matram Ennathu,
Katru En Kathil Etho Sonnathu,

What is this change that didn’t exist till yesterday?
The wind whispered something in my ear.

Ithu Than Kadhal Enbadha, Ilamai Pongivitatha,
Idhayam Sindhivitatha, Sol Maname,

Is this love? Has the youth aroused?
Has the heart spilt? Tell me, my mind.

Netru Illatha Matram Ennathu,
Katru En Kathil Etho Sonnathu,

Vanam Illamale, Boomi Undagalam,
Varthai Ilamale, Bashai Undagalam,
Kadhal Ilamal Ponal, Vazhkai Undaguma,

The world can evolve without the sky.
Language can evolve without words.
Can life evolve without love?

Vasam Illamale, Vanna Poo Pookalam,
Vasal Ilamale, Katru Vandhadalam,
Nesam Ilatha Vazhvil, Pasam Undaguma,

Colourful flowers may bloom without fragrance.
Wind may blow without fragrance.
Can there be an attachment in life without affection?

Netru Illatha Matram Ennathu,
Katru En Kathil Etho Sonnathu,
Ithu Than Kadhal Enbadha, Ilamai Pongivitatha,
Idhayam Sindhivitatha, Sol Maname,

What is this change which wasn’t there yesterday?
The wind whispered something in my ear.
Is this love? Has the youth aroused?
Has the heart spilled? Tell me, my mind.
