The given two stanzas are the saluting  stanzas of Kiratham ottanthullal. Kunjan
used this stanza as beginning to almost all of his ottanthullal, it is a prayer
to GOD (Hindu deity Ayyappa)to be able to perform well. Kiratham Ottanthullal describes
the events after the fall of pandavas, the five prince brothers. Pandavas lost their
kingdom in a gambling with Kauravas(Pandva’s cousins). They plan to recapture their
kingdom with advice from their Guru Vedavyasa. To be able to win the war they require
a special powerful weapon "Pashupathasthram”- a weapon possessed by lord Shiva. 
Arjuna is assigned with the task to procure this weapon from Lord Shiva. Kiratham
depicts the story of Arjuna’s dedication and worship and get blessed by Lord shiva.
