Dear Sri Mani Varadarajan :

I have translated the ten verses of Adaikkalap Patthu 
few months ago and it is available in SaraNAgathi 
Journal issues 1.10 and 1.11 .The introduction to
this prabhandham is also there . The archives of
SaraNAgathi Journal houses that short translation .
Much can be written about each of these ten Paasurams,
which are  the echoes of NyAsa Dasakam .
