Bhavam

Mother! Please ask your consort a boon. Plead to him to get rid of my grievances.

Sri Valli! The giver of boons. Melt murugan's heart with your plea.

Respected Woman! Your caretaker should protect my honor and exhibit affection towards me. Who is better than you in protecting humans in the kali yuga? You're one who blesses equally the good and the bad.
