I received this question from someone on the net.
Some of you who better versed in Tamil can answer
it much better than I can.

If you can, please CC: on 
your reply.

------- start of forwarded message (RFC 934 encapsulation) -------

I have taken the liberty of asking you
to help me understand the passages of Thondaradipodi 
Alzvar.Can I ask you to mail me the 
words of 'vandinamuralum' and its meaning?
I really need help with it and would appreciate
your help greatly.
