Thoobam polen jebam
undhan paadham sera vendum;
Nesa Thandhaai undhan
arul ennai sera vendum;

Like this incense I offer, my prayer
should reach your feet;
Loving father, your grace
should reach me;

Its one of those days when one prays solemnly.. hallelujah is rarely mentioned in the songs;

This day, Maundy thursday is observed by Christians in remembrance of Lord Jesus. Great incidents happened on this date; Lessons were learnt; If you are one of those who is wondering what this day means, here it is for the record..

1) Its the day of Jesus’s last supper. It was at this date, Judas, his disciple, his treasurer betrayed him for 30 silvers.
2) It was at this date, Jesus taught his disciples a very valuable lesson. That, whoever wants to be a master, should be a servant first. Jesus demonstrated this by washing the feet of his twelve disciples and wiping it with his hand towel.
3) This is the day when all of his disciples and friends forsake him; leaving him alone.
4) This is the day when he was crowned with thorns and beaten up!!

Maundy Thursday: Maundy is taken from the latin word `mandatum’ referring to Christ’s commandment concerning foot-washing;
