For flowing through the hills and valleys
For carrying on centuries old historic stories!
For the wilderness on each of your banks!
For feeding men of all states and ranks!
For nurturing fish, insects, beasts and birds!
For inspiring divine poets and royal bards!
You know it all, my suave clan is born selfish,
We know not to give, just to snatch what we wish!
Forgive the dams! Cauvery
We are really sorry!
