Vellai Pookal

Vellai Pookal
Film: Kannathil Mutthamittal
Singer: A R Rahman


As white flowers bloom everywhere in this world,
As a war-torn world quietens for the sake of peace,
As yellow light falls on the sand,
As the flowers wake, stretching their leaves wide,
Let the children wake,In the warmth of the world,
Let the world dawn,
In the laugh of the first new child,
As white flowers bloom everywhere in this world,
As a war-torn world quietens for the sake of peace,
As yellow light falls on the sand,
As the flowers wake, stretching their leaves wide,
Let the children wake,In the warmth of the world,
Let the world dawn,
As white flowers bloom everywhere in this world,
As a war-torn world quietens for the sake of peace,
The words the wind speaks,
The songs the rain sings,
Will a silence or a joy reveal to us?A thousand boons,
The words of the poet,
Will a teardrop or a kiss give to us?
Ah-ha-ha-ha, ah-ha-ha,
As white flowers bloom everywhere in this world,
As a war-torn world quietens for the sake of peace,
As yellow light falls on the sand,
As the flowers wake, stretching their leaves wide,
Where do you travel, child?
Why do you stretch your arms?
Are you reaching for that distant moon?
Where is the human species?
Will it finally tire and rest?
Above them, will not the dove coo?
As white flowers bloom everywhere in this world,
As a war-torn world quietens for the sake of peace,
As yellow light falls on the sand,
As the flowers wake,
stretching their leaves wide,
As white flowers bloom everywhere in this world(bloom),
As a war-torn world quietens for the sake of peace(quietens)...

hey man... good effort on the translation... but sorry to say that some of the things in the translation are quite opposite to the idea the song conveys... the translation is off is some places and opposes the original lyrics in some places. nice attempt, just thought should let u know....

Abhilash, if you feel that the translation is not suitable enough, perhaps you could offer a better one???
