One of my friends found this song very touching  though he didn’t understand the language and asked me if I could  translate the song for him. Hence this post 🙂

Neer Illathe Naal Ellam is an ever-green old Tamil  classic popularized by late Dr DGS Dinakaran .A song that inspires,melts and moves hearts to tears .Hope this helps those who can’t understand to better understand and relate.

Hope this helps those who can’t understand to better understand and relate.

Though one cannot bring out the real essence and emotion of a song in a traslation I hope I can bring out as much as possible. Suggestions are welcome

Nee illatha naal ellam naalaguma
Will a day without you be counted as a day ?

Nee illatha vaalvuellam vaalva aguma
Will a life without you be counted as life?
