Meaning of ingoimalai ezhupathu:

An idiotic monkey showed a fruit in the marble (reflection). All the monkeys now coming together, tactically sitting (!~), started to scratch the stone with the nails ! That Ingoymalai is the hill of the One, Who wound snakes fitting in the form. Notes: 1. IngOy malai ezubadhu is full of enchanting poetic illustration of nature. 2. The first monkey was an idiot that it mistook the reflection of the fruit as real. All the monkey flock were more so, that they started to aggressively scratch the marble to get out the fruit ! (The case is applicable to humans too, when the false things are assumed to be the Truth and a flock just follows blindly with no effort to understand the Truth !) 3. ugir - nail; poruppu - hill.
