Oh! kind hearted Kathirgamanathan
You have passed away leaving a void
With heavy hearts we mourn Thee!
We miss your smile that cheered up hearts!
We miss your refine humour that lightened stress!
We miss your dedicated emboldened service
Accompanied by tact, vision, far sight!
We miss the leader that charioted Colombo Tamil Sangam
For three terms guiding its destinies!
We miss the you that adorned the Secretaryship
Of All Ceylon Hindu Congress as driving force!
We miss Ambassador of World Saiva Council
In internal forum echoing the glory of Tamil, Saivaism!
We miss the fraternal force of Vidaikodi Chelvar
In the promotion of Saiva Nanthy Flag!
And I, miss a genuine friend concerned with our wellbeing!
What is more! Society has missed
The Milk of Human Kindness!
With folded arms, heavy hearts, sighs of sorrow
And tearing eyes we bid farewell to Thee!
May your soul alight on the Holy Feet of Lord Siva!
Thrive in the bliss of Thiruvadi Peru!
That is my earnest prayer!
