Kerala Simham

-

Legend speaks in volumes

Of your prowess and courage,

You, an inspiration to all

 

Hailed a hero for a lone fight,

When kith and kin sought asylum,

You showed what real courage means.

 

forests of Wayanad, your friends,

Whom you knew well, in and out,

Helped you in guerilla war.

 

Betrayed by your own uncle,

You stood guard like a true king,

To protect your people.

 

Thirteen, an unlucky number,

Is the number of years you fought,

None fought the company so long

 

Wellesley said, “we fought one man-

Kerala Varma”, 

Known as ‘Kerala Simham’.

 

*Kerala Simham – Lion of Kerala the title given to the valiant king – Kerala Varma Pazhassi Raja.
