You have done an excellent job. Do you know why?I was browsing for tamil poetry for pi mathematical 22/7, and landed on this
My attempt a long time ago - ( Posted in TB Foruma while ago https://www.tamilbrahmins.com/threads/riddles-in-thamizh-poems.9329/post-145766 )I was browsing for tamil poetry for pi mathematical 22/7, and landed on this
I have been advised to eat citrus fruits and I like oranges best.i read about maha periavah and about கமலா ஆரஞ்சு. he commented, which was in his front at that time and with sanskrit scholars around him , he asked what is it called in sanskrit?? some one answered नारङ्ग .
He asked someone to split it and ask them to count சுளை in each halves. He was told that five and six. He laughed and jokingly said so its name 6 and 5 ie ஆரஞ்சு ( ஆறு அஞ்சு)
This kind of ready wit has a lovely name in Sanskrit 'pratibhaa'.In my school days, i happened to attend a lecture by கிருயானந்த வாரியார் at Hindu High School , Triplicane.
At that time திருவிளையாடல் cinema was running. Suddenly he asked one of the boys who was the father of Sri Muruga?? One boy said sivaji sir remembering the film திருவிளையாடல். As usual in his unperturbed way , he commented, yes he is right, as it is fashion to call the leaders as Nehruji, Gandhiji, Rajaji etc, by adding ji , he has added ji to Siva also. oh what a spontaneous answer, there was applause from the audience on hearing that. I still cherish his eloquence.
Every one of can be called piththan since we are infatuated on different things but certainly on something always!My attempt a long time ago - ( Posted in TB Foruma while ago https://www.tamilbrahmins.com/threads/riddles-in-thamizh-poems.9329/post-145766 )

மூன்று உலகங்களும் துதிக்கும் தேவனே
ஒரு பாதத்தால் அரக்கனை அழித்தவனே
நான்கு வேதங்களும் போற்றுபவனே
ஒரு கரத்தில் உடுக்கை ஏந்தியவனே
ஐந்து பாணனை எரித்தவனே
ஒன்பது கிரகங்களின் நாயகனே
சிவ சக்தி இரண்டும் ஒன்றானவனே
ஆறுமுகனிடம் பிரணவ மந்திரம் கேட்டவனே
இந்தப்பித்தனுக்கும் கிருபை புரிவாயோ
It encodes the mathematical constant Pi = 3.1415926 each line in this represents one of these numbers - of course decimal point is omitted. கிருபை gives the hint. I am a fool - hence the word பித்தன்
ஓர் is used only if the word following it starts with a vowel. Otherwise we have to use 'oru' and write 'oru puLLi'
I have never thought about this earlier but it ishundred digits of pi 3.1415926535 8979323846 2643383279 5028841971 6939937510 5820974944 5923078164 0628620899 8628034825 3421170679 ... PI/4 = 1/1 - 1/3 + 1/5 - 1/7 +
