Asan is a timeless poet of unmatched creativity! I have translated some of his works into the English language. Two of them including Chindavishtayaya Sita and Veena Poovu are published works and are available through Amazon's networks, linked below for your convenience. https: //www.amazon.in/Books-Alex-Kandathil/s? rh=n%3A976389031%2Cp_27%3AAlex+Kandathil
This shlokam (stanza) is from the famous poem “Veena poovu” “ഹാ, പുഷ്പമേ, ..... ..... കിടപ്പിതോർത്താൽ ” We may translate it as follows “Oh, Dear Flower! You had been shining bright as a queen in your high lofty abode. There is no doubt, Riches and high abode are so temporary, so unstable! Now when I see you fallen on the ground, I wonder, where have the riches, the adorable position gone? ”
