Baby Firewall

Baby Fireball

I found a baby fireball!
Placed it gently in a pit in the woods.
Oh it burned down the place!
When was age a factor for valor?
Thattharigita thatharigita thitthom!
~ Translation of part of the poem "Aggini kunjonRu kanden" by Mahakavi Subramanya Bharati

~ An uplifting and exciting song that talks about what happens when one taps into their potential… and that age or size or any so called limit is no bar! The metaphor of the "baby fireball" is very famous due to BharatiAr! I have kept the ending line to show the excitement that the poet had in the song!
