Kamban and SRT

Silly points

The Tamil poet Kamban used these memorable line to describe Rama breaking the bow in Sita’s syamvaram. He says

Eduthathu kandanar ittrathu kettaar

which roughly translates as

They saw him lift the bow and heard it break ( i.e, so lighting fast was the speed of his movement).

Reading this, if one wonders how this might have been in real time one need go no further than watch these straight drives from SRT 🙂
