Highlights from vyAkyAnam (Commentary)

kAr Arndha … – krishNan who is having cloud like rejuvenating form, is desirously residing in thiruththEvanAr thogai in thirunAngUr which has very beautiful gardens. On such dhivyadhESam.

kUr Arndha … – Just as he is a leader in using the spear on the opponents, he is a leader in singing poems too.
