Explanation: "power hacksaws" means "minsaarathil iyangum raatchasa rambangal"
"raatchasa" is a figurative word used to denote that the size is very big; "hacksaws" are those saws that have bigger teeth and hence are capable of sawing and hacking rougher and thicker materials than the ordinary saws.
Explanation: "Min": The normal expression used in Tamil for "electric" Eg: Min-saaram : meaning Electric - Power. I would still like to use another word for "Min", which will be general word meaning "Energy driven". If someone can suggest a term for this it will be great.
Rambam: Saw, Hacksaw etc...
Rambangal: Plural for the above.
