Indomitable to destroy brutal strength of enemy demons

Tiruppavai 15

Tamil Paashuram

Ellay! Illam Kiliye! Inna Murungudiyo!

Shillenruazhayen min Nangaimeer! Podharukinren

Vallai un katturaikal Pande un Vaai Arithum

Valleergal Neengale! Naanthan Aayiduga!

Ollai nee Podaai, Unakkenna Verudayai

Ellarum Pondhaaro? Pondhaar Pondhu Ennikkol

Vallaanai-k-konraanai, Maatraarai Maatrazhikka

Vallaanai Mayanai-p-Paadu-el or Empaavaai.


Madabhushi Sridhar's English Poem 15

O Sweet Parrot, We are all here, Are you still sleeping?,

O Complete Person", "Don't call with chilling sound, I will just come"

"We know your clever skills in talk", "You have more skill, Me also Perhaps".

"Join us quickly, do you have any other purpose?", "Are all of you here?",

"Oh, if you want, come out and count us in your corridor",

We praise the enchanting kid that pulled tusks, killed the rogue elephant,

Indomitable to destroy brutal strength of enemy demons,

Come on, join us and listen to the adventures of the Little Angel.


Meaning:

Goda coined the Hello type word first

The 15 th song starts with word "Elle" which is an expression like 'hello", a greeting in English. Oxford English Dictionary says: "Hello is an alteration of Hallo, Hollo, which came from Old High German "Halâ, Holâ, emphatic imperative of Halôn, holôn, to fetch, used especially in hailing a ferryman". It also connects the development of hello to the influence of an earlier form, holla, whose origin is in the French Holà (roughly, 'whoa there!', from French là 'there'). As in addition to Hello, Halloo, Hallo, Hollo, Hullo and (rarely) Hillo also exist as variants or related words. In Jagadeka Veerudi Katha, the write Pingali invented a word Hala, as alternative to Hello and uses it between the lead pair.


Edison & Bell

The use of Hello as a telephone greeting has been credited to Thomas Edison; according to one source, he expressed his surprise with a misheard Hullo. Alexander Graham Bell initially used Ahoy (as used on ships) as a telephone greeting. Webster's dictionary from 1913 traces the etymology of holloa to the Old English halow and suggests: "Perhaps from ah + lo; compare Anglo Saxon ealā". According to the American Heritage Dictionary, hallo is a modification of the obsolete holla (stop!), perhaps from Old French hola (ho, ho! + la, there, from Latin illac, that way). Look at the similarity, much earlier Goda, or Andal of 7 th Century called it "Elle" as a greeting word to begin conversation, in 15 th Paashuram. We should, perhaps claim that Goda invented the first such word Elle, which now became very popularly - hello. The whole world every day uses this expression. Goda is the inventor of Elle that gradually became Hello.
