Ellarkum Namaskarams,
Adiyen wish to add a few more lines to the ongoing discussion on "Aiyo".
Sri. Madhavakannan has quoted lines  from Kambha Ramayanam.
Adiyen would like to add the first line of those verses.
It is,
"Veyyon Oli Than Meniyin Viri Sodhiyin MAraya",
meaning,Even the Sun's light becomes dimmer  before "The Scitillating light
(tejAs) emanating and spreading  from Sri Rama,when he goes to the forest.
followed by,
poyyO enum idaiyALodum iLayaanodum pOnaan/
maiyO? maragadhamO? maRikadalO? mazhaimugilO?
"aiyO!" ivan azhagenaa azhiyaa azhagudaiyaan.
 Another vishesham regd. this slokam is that,this is supposed One of the (
Only)
three places in Kamba Ramayanam ,where  Kambar has used the word
"Aiyo".This,adiyen  heard in one of the upanyasams long back.Please correct
me if adiyen is wrong.

Sri Renganayaki Samedha Sri Renganathan Thiuvadigale saranam.
adiyen,
Vijayanand Rajagopalan.
