No plan to work from India,

Let alone to stay in Thalambur,

Thalambur, the notorious land,

The land of unwanted surprises


No avenue to call friends and all,

No avenue to come home late,

No chance to get online to chat,

Nothing to do when power fails


Revel in the music of insects,

Revel in the grace of snakes,

Traffic breaks, in form bovine,

The dogs chasing one and all


No letters will come to you,

No parcel to be delivered,

No one will visit your house,

For none knows Thalambur


Stay here, stay at Thalambur,

For want of staying to yourself,

With none to visit and contact,

Stay here, stay forever obscure.
