Essence from Malayalam to English: We will never be able to translate the complete essence of such a beautiful poem from a legend, but we did our level best to do so.
The poet depicts Earth as mother.
You are mother of mothers and have lots of quarrelsome children.
One child hates the other and even kills and eats other.
You were just a silent spectator to all the misdeeds.
They also started eating you inch by inch and you were a helpless observer.
