vadavarai

From: Badri Seshadri (badri_at_cricket.org)

I have the stazas transliterated to 'madurai' scheme
(which should be readable under ADAMI too without any modification)
from my archives. I reproduce them below. These are
checked with couple of published editions of silambu
and hopefully should be free of any typo and such.
I don't have time right now to add word for word translation
but any popular commentary on Silappadhikaram should
be sufficient for that purpose.
