Re: complaint against krishnan
Date: Fri Aug 04 2000 - 12:47:07 PDT

Dear Sri Vasudevan,

This complaint is very much similar to what is put forth by PeriyAzhwAr
and ThirumangaiAzhwAr where the Azhwars consider themself as one of the
gOpis and put forward the list of complaints to Yasodha.

ThirumangaiAzwar devotes 10 beautiful songs where he enjoys himself
describing the complaints (10.7.1 to 10.7.10, periya thirumozhi). One of
goes like this 

kAlai yezhun^thu katain^thavim mOrviRkap
 pOkinREn kaNtE pOnEn,
mAlai naRungunci nan^than makanallAl
 maRRuvan^ thAru millai,
mElai yakaththun^aNG kAy! van^thu kANmin_kaL
 veNNe yEyanRu, irun^tha
pAlum pathin_kutam kaNtilEn pAviyEn
 en_seykEn en_sey kEnO!

This gets roughly translated to :

"When I went out to sell the curds I'd just prepared, I saw [Him] on the
way. Till evening no one other than him, the son of Nandan, has visited
[my place]. Oh! the lady of the upper [quality] house! Come and see my
house. Not just the butter, but even the milk is also missing. What do
I do now ?"

PeriyAzhwar's complaints are very broad, ranging from cheating MahABali
chakravarthi to stealing the clothes while the Ayarmangaiyar were taking
bath. ref 2.10.1 to 2.10.10, periyAzhvAr thirumozhi
