Kiratham–Ottanthullal by Kunjan Nambyar(4th Stanza)

Kiratham Ottanthullal by Kunjan Nambiar is known for its humor and depicts part of Mahabhartham. Can be understood by unscholarly audience as well.

The frustration of the poet is noticed in this stanza as he wishes to convey that his performance may not be liked by people who were eager to hear only gossips and not reality. This is interrupted by experts as polite way to defuse audience who are not serious about understanding the message in thullal. Kunjan Nambiar was very serious about his art and he repeated these lines as preface in all his thullal poems.

Days went along, no one invited me for
ottan thullal performance,
and none cared for the poet as well,
people liked only performance that had only gossip,
and not the one who told truth,
hence he prays to lord Krishna, to help him
