Kaadhal
Thanimai avanukku pudhidhalla.
Mun avan kootathilum thanimai kandaan.
Indro thaniyilum unthunaiyil kulirkondaan.

Life is a blink.

Mudhal kaadhal thondrum nodi,
AvaL EvaaL AavaaL.

aval evaal aavaal was cool.. btw, started me wondering how come we indians(hindus if u will) are not so strong on the first man-woman myth whereas just abt every other myth - greek, roman, egyptian, judaic - jew, christian, muslim - all are strong on it?

Last line rocks!

And to answer the previous comment...the first man-woman is touched upon a bit in the varaha avatara. But yes...not too much exposure.

maybe we have a predilection to not believe in the intelligent design theory -- so the concept of first man/woman makes no sense!

on a different note i have heard theories that the 10 avatars represent evolutionary stages {but of course infinite amount of retrofitting of scientific theory to hindu myths keeps happening all the time}
