Was listening to the lectures of Raa. Selva Ganapathy on Thirumoolar and Thirumanthiram thanks to the CDs gifted by a very good friend some years ago. As Thirumoolar stands on the banks of Cauvery after finishing his darshan at Chidambaram (he is on his way to Podhigai Hills to meet his old friend Agastiyar), Sekkizhar describes Cauvery thus:
A river that gives all her water away to villages, fields and people on her way to the ocean and merges into the sea with ‘nothing’ because she does not want to give any fresh water to the sea that gave the venom to her Lord, Sivaperuman!
(p.s: Karnataka State will observe a day’s bandh on October 6th to protest against the Central Tribunal order on the release of water to Tamil Nadu!)
