    Sriram: arumbu means bud. arumbum = budding or sprouting.

    thanks all. arumbu = bud, I guessed as much, but there is another song whcih goes "arumbAgi mottAgi poovAgi". So I was wondering if arumbu (chinna r or periya R?) refers to a pre-bud stage, bud-lite if you will

    Ferrari: Both thaLir and thuLir can be used for
    sprouts and young leaves. bud/sprout = arumbu (with small r), mottu, thaLir, thuLir. With flowers it is arumbu or mottu. With leaves it is thaLir or thuLir. It is also used for young girls. Depends on what the song calls for and with what rhyme!

    OK, here is some more!
    'thaLir' refers to the pre-budding staage of a flower---poonthaLir,senthaLir etc
    'thuLir' refers to the pre-budding stage of a fruit bearing leaves- maanthuLir[mango leaves], vEppanthulir etc.
    appuRam, andha 'young girls' vishayam... naan varallappaa indha aattaththukku!

    i dunno if this has been discussed before but...

    what does sagi mean?

    the song "pachai niramey pachai niramey.." from alai payuthey starts with the lines "sagiye..snegithiyey.."

    the song "thoothu selvatharadi.." from singaravelan has a line where the female sings "kael en sagi sagi.." (listen... my sagi?!!)
