Tulika Blog4....put your hands together...

This is one of his favourites...and the obvious reason for this partiality is the moral tone of the song! (what else!!)

The two constantly argue with each other Birds Sing: Kurangare Oh Kurangare (2 times) Kudi Irukka Idam Illayo? Manidarai Pol Umakku Kai kaal Irundum Payan Illaiye? (Monkey oh Monkey Do you not have a house to live in? Inspite of having hands and legs like man They are of no use to yu?) The monkeys taunted by the birds, tear the birds nest apar
