Trivia

Vaali has not only written lyrics in pure Tamil but all sorts of folk hip-hop rhythm and blues. He has also mixed other languages in Tamil songs. The legend goes that Vaali at one time in his life was contemplating suicide due to immense poverty when he heard the lines of the song Mayakkama Kalakkamma from the movie SumaiThangi penned by his more illustrious compatriot Kannadasan.The lines Unakkum kile ullavar kodi ninaithu paarthu nimmadhi naadu....changed his mindset and renewed his vigour to live a new life.Thus was born the great poet we know today.He has quoted that there were 24 hours with him but no food to eat and next came a time when he had enough on the plate but no time to eat.

Once Actor Kamal Haasan asked Vaali to pen the lyrics for a love song for the film 'Aboorva Sagodharargal'. Kamal requested him to pen specially for a love failure song. Vaali penned the lyrics and gave him. But Kamal didn't get satisfied as the situation in that film was so intense and so he asked the lyrics which has much deeper emotion for love failure. And so Vaali penned the lyrics for the second time third time.... and finally for the sixth time he wrote the lyrics and angrily thrown away the writing pad and said 'Ithukku mela ennala ezhutha mudiyathu'(It's my final lyrics for your song. I will not write more than this) and went. And that song is the one and only - "Unnai nenachaen paatu paaduchaen Thangamae gnanathangamae...." which has won the National Award.
