  -> I agree

disagree  Narendran: There is no need for literal translation to make a wish/greetings. So to emphasis the wish strongly the slight deviation from the source is permitted.So here it could either be"pirantha naal nal vaazhthukal"or"pirantha naal vaazhthukal"

  -> I prefer the second option "pirantha naal vaazhthukal"

neutral  gopalan balachandhran: "pirantha naal nal vaazhthukal" is more aproppriate.
