On all things along the way
Terrific song, terrific lyrics and terrific translation. Though the translation might be treated as a glossary at first, it stands out as a beautiful poem by itself! But one concern though. In the last para, is it நான் பாத்த நொடியே or நீ பாத்த நொடியே? I thought I heard the latter. Hope there is no confusion. Great job once again!- a lurker turned commenter who loves all your writings.
Thank you for the translation.

Excellent job, @Nandini. It is not an easy task to translate a song that is so rustic and uses the cant of the fishermen community of coastal Tamil Nadu, with Gospel references :) Madhan's choice of ஈசா and தோமா are not only a play around words with Christian connotations, but, also apt for the characters they represent in the movie. Thank you.
