    Thanks for the detailed response and appreciation @jayasala42 madam. In fact I read phrases like "Thaali perugitru" grouped under "Mangala vazhakku", though it meant the demise of the husband. Oddly enough, Mangalam is used in positive context too in a numberof places. Remember the famous song "Kungumam! Mangala Mangaiyar kungumam; Kungumam, Madurai Meenatchi kungumam?" of past times? Also, remember this thirukkuraL?
    மங்கலம் என்ப மனைமாட்சி மற்றுஅதன்
    நன்கலம் நன்மக்கட் பேறு.

    The meaning of the word Mangalam is just mentioned as "Nanmai". I used it in that context. And its not the first time that marriage is linked to Mangalam. -rgs

    Dear @Thyagarajan, Sorry for the late response.
    Thanks for your appreciation first, and for a crisp feedback. Oddly enough, even bride wears a lot of bangles these days. :) -rgs

    I fully appreciate what you said.I just wanted to say'mangalam' does not refer to 'auspiciousness' alone and it also refers to inauspicious things described as if auspicious.
    I know pretty well that the word 'mangalam' is a happy prosperous word and nadaswaram is known as 'mangala vadyam.

    காற்றான அத்தையவள் தலை வருட - படிக்கும்போதே கற்பனை பண்ணிக்க தோணுதுங்க :thumbup:

    நிறை மௌனம் கொண்ட பெண்ணுக்கு
    மதக்களிறாய் ஆர்ப்பரிக்க வந்த மணமகன் :clap2:

    மின்னல் நூலெடுத்து
    இடியவர் நாண்தொடுக்க
    நாணம் கொண்ட பெண்
    யாராய் இருக்கும் ?

    இயற்கையோட இயைந்த இன்பமான கற்பனை இனிது இனிது :clapclap:
