On the Necessity for Two Minds

Two minds is what I need,
I asked of God indeed,
One to pine, wallow and wither,
The other to forget and live on.

If days and nights are an either or,
If joy and sorrow are two,
If togetherness and separation are not one,
One mind cannot be sufficient.

Transliteration in English of Poet’s Kannadasan famous song:

Irandu Manam Vendum
Iraivanidam Ketten
Ninaithu Vaada Ondru
Marandhu Vaazha Ondru

Iravum pagalum irandanaal ,
Inbam thunbam irandaanaal ,
Uravum pirivum irandaanaal,
Ullam ondru podhathe.
