தடித்தவோர் மகனைத் தந்தை ஈண்டடித்தால் தாயுடன் அணைப்பள்   தாயடித்தால்  பிடித்தொரு தந்தை  அணைப்பன் இங்கெனக்குப்  பேசிய தந்தையுந் தாயும் ,பொடித்திரு மேனி அம்பலத்தாடும் புனித  நீ  யாதலால்  என்னை  அடித்தது போதும்  அணைத்திடல்  வேண்டும் அம்மையப்பா யினியாற்றேன் .                                                                                                     See this beautiful song composed by vallalar.Is it not touching our heart. If a father beats his son(at his smaller age due to some mischief) immediately mother would hug  him & stop beating ,if the mother beats that son,father would stop it. where as  my Lord, You are both  my father & mother,henceforth stop & save me from  this beatings(worldly sufferings).I  am  unable to tolerate any more.                                                                                                                                                    In addition to composing many divinely songs, he has cured many incurable diseases . He was  an expert in siddha medicines ,which were made from herbals.In those days those who knew  the preparation of these herbal medicines,did  n't help needy people.Vallalar has helped many persons from the jaws of death.He was the first person to compile a dictionary of herbs stating which herb would cure which  disease.There were no clinical labs & other advanced facilities available in those  days.Even now medical treatment has become costlier for the common man.Thank you Viewers.Let me share  with you other details in  coming posts,
