                      nAcciyAr tirumozhi - II - ciRRil cidaiyEl.
          pAsuram 2.6 (second tirumozhi - pAsuram 6 muRRilAda piLLaigaLom)

A. Translation from SrImAn SaDagopan's tamizh treatise.

"Oh, the great raghuvIrA, who built the bridge across the ocean and made a
battle ground of SrI LankA.  These acts of yours, where you make the excuse of
destroying our ciRRil, must have some inner reason for sure.  However, we are 
too young to understand these hidden meanings.  So please don't disturb us".

B.  Some additional thoughts:

ANDAL suggests that it was okay for Him to create a battleground in SrI
Lanka where there were enemies, but asks KaNNan why He is starting a battle
with them who are His friends.  She says "You have already exhibited your
valor by battling the evil but powerful rAvaNa and slaying him; for you to
come and start a battle with us who are just young girls who are not even
grown up yet, does not sound right.  So leave us alone!".
