    Dear All,

    I have always had a fascination for Tamil proverbs and have collected many over the years from all elder members in my family. I am posting a few.

    Please let me know if you can read them.

    Love & regards,

    Chithra.

    Unable to read the message, not your sign !

    Chitra, this is quite bizarre ! Your posting is not legible (it's in some unrecognisable font), however I see your sign clearly in tamil which says "Anbudan, Chitra"...

    Love,
    Preethi

    Golden words !

    Dear Chitra,

    Most of the proverbs were tooooooooooo good ! the one that baffled me was this, how true !
    அகன்று இருந்தால் நீண்ட உறவு
    கிட்ட இருந்தால் முட்டப் பகை
    I am not so great in understanding tamil proverbs....some of them I didn't understand what they meant, but those that I understood, i really enjoyed its inner meaning...!

    Keep sharing more ! they are real true collection.

    My personal favourite was this :
    அகப்பட்டுக் கொண்டவனுக்கு அஷ்டமத்துச் சனி
    ஓடிப்போனவனுக்கு ஒன்பதாம் இடத்தில் குரு

    Love, Preethi

    One More Feather In Your Cap.

    Chitra Habibi,
    I was searching for your posts in Spiritual discussions & was very happy to see you in this thread.
    It was great to read Pazhamozhi after so...many years.
    Regards
    USHA

    Enna gnaodhayam

    Dear Kutty chithra,

    Ennachhu ?? I do not know to write in that font to reply you. But I know how to read it and I know most of the proverbs also.
    I hope you remember I told you that I studied in Saradha Vidyalaya. T nagar.
    till college my language was tamil. But now I can and write malayalam also.

    That was a nice list of pazhamozhikal.
    Latha :wave

    Proverbial Chitra!

    Dear Chitra,

    True, another feather in your already heavy cap!
    I enjoy proverbs, but am bad at remembering them and keep confusing and switching the proverb of one language into another! Like Preethi mentioned, my firefox too wont let me read your Tamil script clearly, but will switch to IE, that will be better to read the font. Keep them coming:)

    My dear Preethi !

    I am relieved first and then am glad !
    My MIL used to quote proverbs at the drop of a hat & believe me, I used to note down every one of them. This time, when I went to Madurai, I collected my mother's collection as well !
    Thankyou for the "maiden" feedback !

    Love & regards,
    Chithra.

    Let me not look like a Red Indian, Usha !

    I am very happy that you are feeling nostalgic on reading pazhamozhis !
    Now that you are all giving green signal, shall we make Monday, pazhamozhi day ?
    Thankyou for the F B, Usha.
    Love & regards,
    Chithra.

    My dear Letha Molae !

    I am happy that you can read tamil & enjoy what I write. This thought has been working in my mind for the past few days. So I decided, better late than never !
    Don't thank me too early - you will be punished with more !
    Love & regards,
    Chithra

    Good Idea / My Suggestion

    Chitra,

    That's a good idea of having Monday as Pazhamozhi day, I am for it !

    You can start a thread exclusively for this, with one proverb per (mon)day and briefly explain its meaning (I atleast feel translation is needed to fully understand its meaning to enjoy it thoroughly), am sure, funny anectodes or incidents will crop up to some of IL, while associating those pazhamozhi's in their life and can share those with other IL members too in the same forum...This way, Not only we get to know new pazhamozhi's but also have some good incidents shared and we can have fun (as we always do at IL) !

    I would like to wait and hear what other IL ladies feel about it, including you !

    Love,
    Preethi
