Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose

Two songs, two poets, two eras apart.

 

Pakkathu veetu paruva machan, in the film Karpagam, penned by Vaali flows as follows in its last stanza :

Oorellaam urangi vidum, ullam mattum urangaadhu
Osai ellam adangi vidum, aasai mattum adangaadhu
Aasai mattum adangaamal
, avanai mattum ninaiththiruppen

 

Nenjukulle, in the film Kadal, penned by Vairamuthu goes :

pachi oorankiruchu
paal, thayira thungiruchu
ichi marathu mela
ela kuda thugiruchu
 
kaasa noikkaarigalum
kannurangum velaiyila
aasa noi vanthamaga
aranimisham thungalaiye
