This slokam is set as dialogue between Avvayaar and Lord Vinayaka. Vinayaka being childlike, is offered 4 things and she, in return asks for 3 things( 3 aspects of Tamil language) viz – Iyal, Isai and Natakam. I shall offer milk, honey, lentils and jaggery syrup mixed to You Lord Vinayaka who is elephant-faced, please bestow upon me the threefold Tamizh language which represent wisdom.
Note – In singing line by line, the line repeated has been sung in a gentle voice for kids to follow.
