Temperate and fine cool weather
Makes it a month to remember
Connoisseurs of classical music
Come down to Chennai to live
the spirit of timeless Carnatic soirees
in all their splendour and colours
with the aroma of filter coffee.
Divine month of Tamil ‘Markazhi’
Reverberating the soul-stirring
Sacred hymns of Andal dissolved
In her pristine pure love for Krishna;
Of shaivite saints seeking redemption
In every temple and every home
breaking the predawn silent streak
Makes it a matchless confluence of
Divinity in its myriad manifestations.
