An example of some of these adorations are:
"Bharatha is like the face beauteous of Earth clad in wavy seas;
Deccan is her brow crescent-like on which the fragrant 'Tilak' is the blessed Dravidian land.
Like the fragrance of that 'Tilak' plunging the world in joy supreme reigns Goddess Tamil with renown spread far and wide. Praise unto You, Goddess Tamil, whose majestic youthfulness, inspires awe and ecstasy."
Salutations to Mother Tamil! The Mother of all languages!
Brimming Sea drapes exuberant Dame Earth!
Beautified face; the exalted Indian sub-continent!
South! In particular Dravidan country!
Aesthetic Thilakam on thy beauteous curved forehead!
Fragrance of Thilakam maketh entire world delirious!
Oh! Goddess Tamil! Spreads in all directions Thine fervour too!
Many a life! Many a world! Creations of Thine! Decimations too !
Ever pervading Creator! Remain as ever! Ever as Thy have been!
Kannada, Joyous Telugu, Dainty Malayalam with Thulu!
Born out of Thee! Borne by Thee! Originated out of Thee! Replicated!
Unlike Aryan linua franca! Spoken by none! Dead and gone!
Ever remain afresh Thee alone! Purity intact too!
Delighted! Praise thou beauteous Tamil, a Virgin forever! Awestruck!
Praise unto thee! Praise unto thee!
