For song Vaishnav Janto of album: M S S - Live At Carnegie Hall - Vol. 12013-07-04 11:13:01

Along with Hari Thumha Haro , This was the other song which brought MSS Amma close to Gandhiji , When a request came from Gandhiji for MSS Ammaa to record this song & send it to him , a light hesitancy on the Part of Ammaa as she had not rendered it before was conveyed to Gandhiji .

Few months later when Gandhiji was shot dead This song was played by All India Radio through ought 2 days . The composition & such heart rendering song reinforces our love & need for sacrifice for Bharatha Maathaa

For song Leke Chali Mujhe Apne Saath of album: Kohraa2013-05-31 13:15:26
Is Lataji rendering superlative ?or Hemanda Music is superlative? is so difficult to tell First credit should go to music direction for such a haunting creation & to Lataji matching hemandas creation & taking the song to a very high level .It was an era where every artist gave out their very best resulting in one after another song which gave the listeners such a wonderful musical feast

For song Yeh Nain Dare Dare of album: Kohraa2013-05-31 13:08:54
Really melts you , the music & voice .Hemanda did not score for too many films
but every music direction was absolutely outstanding . In a film may be 3 out of
6 songs could be a hit , but in Hemanda music direction like in Kohraa every song was too good . You can never find words for this great music Director & Singer

For song Raah Bani Khud Manzil of album: Kohraa2013-05-31 13:03:40

For song Ponnondru Kandaen of album: Padithaal Mattum Pothuma (tml)2013-05-25 21:40:34

mortal soul in a span of just 40 days . Truly such outstanding singers they were . Here the song are the thoughts of 2 friends about their lovers & how well each of them have brought out those thoughts in a wonderful manner .

The greatest Play Back Singer of Tollywood Sri T.M.Sounderajan death at 91
removes the last of Trio Sri A. M.Raja , Sri P.B.Srinivas being the other 2 . The three dominated Tollywood from early 50's to mid 80's . T.M.S.Sir in particular was so versatile with any type of song & had outstanding abilities to sing in the Voice of Shivaji Ganesan or M.G.R. like in this song . His songs would continue to entertain us for many decades to come . May his soul rest in peace & our deep condolences to his family . Thank You T.M.S.Sir for your Golden rendering we would remember you eternally

For song Aththaan Ennathaan of album: Paava Mannippu2013-05-18 13:17:00
In any song there are 3 distinct parts .The Lyrics , The composition & the rendering
In almost all songs all of them blend very well & contribute to the glory of the song . In a song like this the 3 factors stand out individually , & stll raise the level of the song to an unprecedented level . Sri Kannadasn lyrics has no words to desrcibe the genius in him . With just one word " Than " he has so amazingly created the song . To give effect to those lyrics is the outstanding composition of the duo & last but not least taking to the upper most strata is Smt P.Susheela Ammas voice . I wonder whether there could be ever such 3 outstanding , brilliant , beautiful combination in the years to come .

For song Dolayaam of album: Balaji Pancharatnamala Sri Annamacharya Samkirtanas Vol-12013-05-11 13:23:06
This Krithi of Annamacharyas on Dashavathar has been sung so well that as rightly said by the one whos has translated so beautifully , the music , lyrics & MSS Ammas rendering makes our heart swing with the Goddess Lakshmi & Sri Hari

ḍōlāyāṃ cala ḍolāyāṃ harē ḍolāyām ||

Annamayya must have composed this song for Swami vari "Dolotsvam" which is the seva during which Venkateswara swamy, along with his wife(wives?) is swung on a swing. So here Ananmayya starts his first line where he says "Swing Godess Lakshmi, swing Hari". The music and lyrics makes one's heart swing along with the Lord and Lakshmi.

mīna kūrma varāha mṛgapati avatāra |
dānavārē guṇaṣaurē dharaṇīdhara maru janaka||

In the first sentence of this stanza, Annamayya begins the avataras of Vishnu, starting with Meenavatara, the Fish-form of incarnation, the Kurma-avatara,(Turtle-form), the varaha(Boar) avatara.

The second sentence in the stanza presents the adjectives that describe the various qualities of Vishnu. Dana Vari is the generous giver. This usually refers to the episode of Krishna's boon of wealth to his poor friend Kuchela. GunaSOurye means the courageous one, maru janaka is the father of the world, since He is supposed to be father of Brahma, the Creator.

vāmana rāma rāma varakṛṣṇa avatāra |
śyāmalāṅgā raṅga raṅga sāmajavarada muraharaṇa ||

"Vamana, Rama (Parushu Rama), Rama (Ayodhya's King Rama), Vara Krishna incarnator, the dark-skinned one, also called ranga, the giver of boons to the elephant, Killer of the Demon Mura..."
After narsimha avatara, Vishnu took the form of a Dwarf. He then was born as a Brahmin Parushu Rama. Then took the form of the Kshatriya Rama. He also took the form of the Yadava King, Krishna

dāruṇa buddha kaliki daśavidha avatāra |

The Budha and the Kalki, the one with ten different incarnations, the Holder of Plough(Balrama),the Gosamane, the one whose abode is Venkatagiri Mountain"
So there is a belief that the Buddha who is considered to be Vishnu Avatar is not Gautama Budha and that He is a different Budha.

For song Raghuveera Ranadheera of album: Maharajapuram Santhanam Vol 12013-04-30 12:09:20

O Lord Raghuveera - the Valiant one in the battle! Deign to come, O Prince – son of King Dasaratha!

O Lord who rent asunder the arrogance of Parasurama – son (in the lineage) of sage Bhrigu! O Support of the celestials!

O Lord who is like Indra – enemy of mountaints - to the mountains for Ravana, Kumbha-karna and Indrajit – enemy of indra – enemy of demon Bala; O Embodiment of all moving and non-moving! O Lord found in the heart of this Thyagaraja!

Pallavi :
I always worship Shastaa, the son of Hari and shiva.I renounce theactivities associated with mAya or illusion

The dweller in shauri giri who pleases Vishnu - the killer of Mura.The one fond of instruments like the flute, beri .The one who bestows sons.He is worshipped in Spring by crowds of people.He grants longevity.He bestows happiness to destitutes.4

Charanam :
He incarnated on the full moon day in the phAlguna month.He brings glory to the kingdoms of the Pandyas and kerala.He bears the floral arrows, sugarcane bow and and a floral staff made of kalharaa (senkazhuneer in Tamil ) flowers. He manifests in Kaliyuga.He punishes instantly.He resides in the minds of guha , who is hara’s guru.The one who has an army with chariots, elephants and horses.

For song Melukovayya of album: Thyagaraja Kritis Vol 22013-04-30 09:48:08
In the kriti ‘mElukOvaiyya’ – rAga bhauLi, shri tyAgarAja awakens the Lord early in the morning.

Meaning: O Lord shri rAma! O Lord united with excellent sItA! O My Fortune! O Lord reclining on shesha! O Blessed Eminent One of the solar dynasty! O Lord of Emperors! O Moon Faced! O King of ayOdhya! O Lord of virtues! O Lord whose feet are praised by this tyAgarAja! O King! nArada and others, seeking You, are now abundantly singing (about) Your greatness; the day is about to dawn; may You wake up quickly to partake nicely fresh butter and milk!

The celestial damsels are reverentially praying much to You to (permit them to) render service to You; the excellent lamps lit by aNimA and the others, wearing gem-studded ornaments, are fading.

The Lords of multitudes of celestials and all others are waiting for worshipping You. May You wake up to nourish this Universe! Please look after us.

For song Adhi Neepai of album: Lalgudi G Jayaraman Srimathi Brahmanandam (violin Vol 3)2013-04-29 14:21:57
Through the beautiful display of Sri Lalgudi Adhi Neepai is flowing Majestically
like Yamuna River . How sweet & melodious . Death is inevitable , but when it takes away an artiste of the highest class like Sri Lalgudi .the loss is so great as to find an artiste of that class takes many many years as they are born probably once in 100 years

For song Ennaganu Rama of album: Master Piece Vol I (lalgudi G.jayaraman)2013-04-29 13:57:40
Just as Baktha Ramdas was drowned in his Bakthi for Lord Sri Rama
Sri Lalgudi each display drowns us in the nectar of carnatic music so deep & so pure. This Beautiful Panthu varali Ragam is taken to its heights through such a divine display that one can never find words for Sri Lalgudi display . What swetness & melody .Shear pleasure & nothing but that

For song Enta Muddo of album: Master Piece Vol Ii (lalgudi G.jayaraman)2013-04-29 13:03:26
Seems A Very rare Raga , But the display of Sri Lalgudi is too well known for its amazing bow technique . The softness & Shruthi Suddham makes every display of
Sri Lalgudi such a pleasure & so divine . Truly an artist with no comparison at all . As Sri Chowdiah once said , when you are comparing violonist keep aside Lalgudi
& talk about the rest . When such a stalwart says one can easily know the class of an artist like Sri Lalgudi

For song Tyagarajaya of album: Master Piece Vol I (lalgudi G Jayaraman)2013-04-29 12:27:58
Thanking the member for Lyrics & meaning input . All the beautiful Lyrics & meaning

Meaning: In the kriti ‘sarasa sAma dAna’ – rAga kApinArAyaNi, shri tyAgarAja extols the Lord about the way He dealt with rAvaNa. O Clever One praised by this tyAgarAja who adopted nicely the four-fold actions of rAja dharma – conciliation, gift or bribe, creation of dissension and punishment, in dealing with rAvaNa! It’s indeed a pity that rAvaNa who prides himself to be the most eminent of devotees of the great Lord shiva, could not realise this! You conveyed to him a lot of beneficial words; You offered even ayOdhyA for ever; You made vibhISaNa, who supplicated before You, as King of laGkA; as rAvaNa did not mend his ways even after that, You ultimately slayed him. Which God is equal to You? deign to protect me.

For song Seer Sirakkum Meni (ins) of album: Lalgudi Ramani And Venkatraman - Vio2013-04-29 10:50:59
I entirely agree with Sri Ramachandran & with Lalgudi Sir also no more the pure
form of carnatic music & the perfection artiste achieved with hours of practice is also slowly disappearing . & to have the combination & harmony is almost
next to impossible . We have to please ourselves listening to album of this type to get the total satisfaction . So beautiful & pleasing to hear

Is salvation possible in this earth for those who are not realised souls?
For those who are ignorant of music and devotion that enables them to see you, is salvation possible?
Object of Tyagaraja’s worship, for those who do not understand the inner thoughts of Shiva who ever delights in playing the vINa, which unites the life force (jIvAtma) with the divine light (paramAtma) thereby dividing the OmkAra into seven notes, is salvation possible?

I bow to the son of Nanda whose mace is Nandaka. He is Indira's consort. He has lotus on his navel. The Sun and the Moon are like his eyes. He is benevolent to devotees. He is Mukunda the bestower of salvation. He is Govinda. He is Gopala of Yadu clan.

Meaning: Oh, Mind ! Be honest in making it clear, whether acquisition of material wealth or an
opportunity to be of service to Lord Sri Rama, is more conducive and satisfying ! Milk,
butter and curd on the one side and ambrosia of meditation and worship of Sri Rama on
the other - Which one is a better choice ? Controlling one's senses as good as a dip in
the serene Ganges or enjoyment of worldly pleasures comparable to bathing in a well
having mire and dirt - which is better ? Would it not be a better alternative to sing the
glory of the kindly Lord, as is done by wise ones like Thyagaraja, than engaging in the
flattery of mortals swollen with insolence and deception ?

All the comments by esteemed members point out to one thing definitely . This memorable display by Sri Lalgudi is so soft , beautiful Gaanamrutham that it is more like hearing it in a celestial place than on this earh . As the music flowing from the beautiful Violin through the astounding divine like display is just inexplicable ,but surely even a layman can get drowned into this sagara of music , Such stunning
divine display is the display of Lalgudi . It makes me feel that for listeners to know How the Saints , Thyagaraja , Mutthuswamy Dhikshithar , Shyama Sastri composed & enjoyed singing it in front of various deities & Goddess , God created Sri Lalgudi so that we the listeners could enjoy it in the same way .

For song Ragam Tanam of album: Ragam Tanam Pallavi (lalugudi G.jayaraman&m.s.goplalkrishnan)2013-04-27 14:20:49

The Violin is so superbly handled that it seems Lord Shanmuga is playing Shanmuga Priya . Truly gripping & very melodious

For song Ragam Tanam Pallavi of album: Master Piece Vol Iii (lalgudi G.jayaraman&srimathi Brahmanandam2013-04-25 14:18:21
When ones listens to Sri Jayaraman & Smt Brahmanandam , The music is so
wonderful that one just gets drowned into it . What a scintillating display of this Ragam Tanam Pallavi that it is impossible to come out from this mesmerising effect of such sweet & superlative music .

For song Meenakshi Memubham - Purvikalyani of album: Legends- Lalgudi -violin - Vol.42013-04-25 12:30:45
Sri Lalgudi Jayaraman. All through his career right from the age of 12 till his very
last day Apr 22nd -2013 practiced 18 hrs a day for perfection , innovation within
the boundaries of Shashthriya Carnatic music , to not only enhance the music but also to present to the common man the best possible music through his genius in bowing technique . When you hear this Poorvi Kalyani on Goddess Meenakshi
the presentation is probably in the exact form that Sri Muthuswamy Dhikshithar visualised . Sri Lalgudi is not with us today but his contribution would last
as long as there is carnatic music, because it is so deep & so pure

For song Varnam (lalgudi Jayaraman) of album: Collectors Choice Lalgudi G Jayaraman2013-04-25 09:55:52

& That is Lalgudi Sir Genius skill

For song Nadaloludai Lalgudi G Jayaraman Kalyanavasantham of album: Lalgudi G.jayaraman2013-04-24 15:50:38
I first Head this song in 1973 in AIR Chennai Station played by Sri Lalgudi
& for 40 years this has been such a favourite song of mine for the simple reason
that this beautiful Kalyana Vasantham Ragam has been brought out by Sri Lalgudis magical playing in such a sweet way It just merges you with the song There are 3 aspects of any song its composition , the raga & how these 2 are brought out by the artist . If you go through the Lyrics like a sloka you can see many beautiful divine aspect described , if you hear it in Kalyana Vasantham Ragam with ragam your further love for the song is enhanced , when some one like Sri Lalgudi plays you are just floored as the lyrics & Raga not only seems more sweet but the mesmerising effect is so much. TodaySri Lalgudi has merged with Divine
but the Divine music of his like this would continue to enchant us for many many years. No doubt they said music is eternal probably they heard Sri Lalgudi play this I suppose

For song Adamodi Chaurkesi Lalgudi G Jayaraman of album: Lalgudi G.jayaraman2013-04-24 14:27:31
Adamodi in Charukesi to me is one of the most beautiful creation of Saint Thyagaraja , It has such a magic effect on you . That instantly you become one with the song . & when M.S.S.Amma sings it or Sri Lalgudi plays it the effect becomes more sweet to the ears , heart mind& soul as you can realise what a perfect rendering it must be for you to get so captivated . That is what I feel listening to this mesmerising display of Sri Lalgudi Sir who has brought out the songnot just as a Saint Thyagaraja composition or as a carnatic music but in a much more captivating manner not only for the puritan or stalwarts but also for those who can enjoy good music

For song Mohana Kalyani Lalgudi G Jayaraman of album: Lalgudi G.jayaraman2013-04-24 14:11:00
If A song is in Mohanam How do you recognise it . Simple thumb rule just listen to Sri Lalgudi playing it in the violin & within milli seconds you would know it is Mohanam so Mohanam is Sri Lalgudis skill over this Instrument which itself is Mohanam . Just superb, superlative & just drowns you in the real nectar of music

For song Ragamalika Swaram Lalgudi Jayaraman of album: Lalgudi G.jayaraman2013-04-24 13:43:10
Yes the Instrument Sri Lalgudi played is now for the museum , but the thousands of divine music created through his genius touch over the strings would continue to reverberate music filled with nectar for many many centuries . the greatness of Raga Malika is the total capture of so many Ragas & the way the ragas blend one after the other & particularly when an Artiste like Sri Lagudi plays such Raga malikas the blend seems that more sweet & takes listeners to a paradise , a genius who for over 70 years from the Tender age of 12 till the very end put his heart & soul into creativity within the boundaries of pure shastriya carnatic music has made this Sri Lagudi Bani not only unique but shear pleasure for which I just have no words to describe but I do have the ear to enjoy it to the total fulfillment of joy to the heart mind & soul

For song Ganamoorthey (ins) of album: Lalgudi G.jayaraman2013-04-24 13:32:18
When God created Saint Thyagaraja to compose the song He decided to create
Sri Lalgudi Jayaraman to play the song so beautifully in this beautiful Violin Instrument. Members input on the song , with Thyagarajas composition & Sri Lalgudis memorable bowing leaves you spell bound . Sri Lalgudi who attained Lords feet on 22nd April would be remembered for another 22 Centuries through his superlative & mostly divine rendition ,literally making the violin to talk . An outstanding artiste who gave us so much of pleasure ecstacy , thrill, sweetness & joy through his soft touch would remain in the hearts of music lovers for ever . Our deep condolences to his family for this loss, but such artiste never disappear is my firm belief

For song Enna Thavam (ins) of album: Lalgudi G.jayaraman2013-04-24 13:20:43
Sri Lalgudi in an Interview during the celebration of Sri Papnasa Sivam Centenary
Celebration said that Sri Papnasam Sivan told him that after hearing Sri Lalgudi play he felt he had created it just for Lalgudi How wonderfully Sri Jayaraman has brought out every aspect of the Lyrics . Likie Yashodha cradled Balakrishna to sleep Sri Lalgudi is cradling the Instrument to give such touching,telling effects by his genius touch . Too superlative & too Beautiful indeed . What a pleasure

Though in Western Style music , The Lyrics & superlative rendering really makes it so enjoyable to listen . It only goes to show that composers had the ability to turn anything to Gold as they were committed to melodious music

For song Poojaikku Vantha of album: Pathakannikkai2013-04-15 12:08:04
Music has no age/ generation , Good Melodious song with meaningful Lyrics
& rendering is what makes a song a super hit / flop. The only difference was
in earlier years Carnatic or Hindustani music influenced the Music Directors to compose music & time limit was not fixed & melody was given utmost importance
& great Music Directors like , G.Ramanathan Sir , Sudarshan Sir , Mahadhevan Sir , Viswanathan RamaMurthy Sir & Sri Raja Sir as well were able to produce one gem after another . Even today music Directors are there as Good as the Past but Theme of films & time restriction due to Prohibitive cost has diluted melody & songs are short lived unlike this song which is 50 years old & which has the wonderful comment it is mesmerising . Very true indeed

For song Manithan Enbavan of album: Sumaithangi2013-04-15 11:29:31

Sundra Kandam one can easily say it as Hanuman Kandam as from start to end are the wonderful exploits of Lord Anjaneya . Who else can narrate it so beautifully other than the greatest Discourse Giant Sri Anantha Rama Dhikshithar . The way of presentation , his total mastery over all aspects of subjects he took attracted 1000's of devotees to his recital which would last for 30 days to 40 days . There have been many before & many after but to me Sri Dhikshithar has a place that cannot be contested .

The first Live programme I attended of Rafi Saab was in 1965 April . Rafi Saab sang this song that day . One of the Amazing factor about Rafi saab rendering the song I noticed was be it for an High octave , Oh Dhuniya ke Rakhwale or a full throw song Like Japan Love in Tokyo or this soft song , there would be no change in the face expression & to me I was astounded by hardly any opening of the mouth rendering all these songs . To this day I have not figured out from where that divine voice is coming from . Truly what a person, what a voice & what style of rendering

For song Insaaf Ka Mandir Hai Yeh of album: Amar2012-12-24 11:41:15
Dear Sri Ramaswamy you are 100 percent right, Those days the world was
not corrupted as communication was only the barest minimum . Exposure was only through Cinema , AIR & Radio Ceylon . All music directors were true Ustad of Hindustani Music . As one of the members has given a wonderful input as this song is in Rag Bhairav , The music matched the theme of the Film . And God blessed us all with GReat Music writers , composers & Divine personalities like Rafi Saab . That is the reason Three non-Hindus devoted to their profession produced so many songs on Hindu Deities , What a Beautiful Bharath it was . Truly we miss those quality of Life & culture very much today . Thank you Sir for your nice input

The member Statement that MSS Amma Lives here in this song is 100 percent true
North Indian Pandits who heard MSS Ammaa sing this Yaman Kalyan song basically a Hindustani Raga with so much of Bhava & such Divinity as if Balagopala
was present Before her gave a standing ovation at the end of the song during a concert in Delhi. What a tribute to a once in a few centuries artist whose perfection, presentation & devotion remains unmatched . Was she Not an Avatar of Goddess Saraswathi ?

For song Hamne Tujhko Pyar Kiya Hai of album: Dulha Dulhan2012-12-14 13:28:47
One of the very beautiful factor was , that every music director realising that

One cannot say whether we can forget many aspects / event in ones life . One thing is certain that Singers like MUkeshji can never be erased from our mind .

I had gone to the Theatre in 1963 summer to watch Bandini . On 3 successive days there was power cut & we were given passes for the next day . It was only on the 4th day we could see the complete film . Every day those 4 days I had the opportunity to listen to this song . It has not only stayed permanently in my mind but also it is one of my top favourite song . Mukeshji singing really makes you emotional as not only he was such a wonderful soul but really put his heart & soul into each song with a telling effect on the listeners . Burmanda music one cannot say any thing it was purity at its best , Songs like these I suppose is what makes you going in life as the mind is highly enriched

For song Saroja Dhala Netri (part-1) of album: Compositions Of Shyama Sastri - Vocal -2012-12-11 11:36:15
MSS Amma Concert at The UN in Oct 1966 would be a bench mark for it was in this tour that US citizens & NRI got the real insight into Carnatic Music .

Can any thing me more pleasing to the mind , than listening to this thillana rendered
By Sri Santhanam . Absolutely mesmerising . Members alone can insert Raga as there are so many ardent carnatic fans in Hummaa . People in musical sites have technical skills to upload song . Like Sri Rama Krishnan who has so kindly indicated this as the beautiful Basanth Bahar , others too can insert the ragas of the song they listen or insert anecdotes or meaning that would be highly helpful to all listeners

For song Jhoole Mein Pawan Ki Aai Bahar of album: Baiju Bawra2012-11-26 14:41:21
Dear Friend , Every word you have said about Jambhavans of Yesterday vs Pathetic
of today is 100 percent correct . Those days Lyricist , Singers & musician spent
enormous amount of time as they were deep into each of the Many thousand songs that were created . Also Classical Hindustani Raga were used
as one member has kindly given the input as Raga Pilu for this song . Basic Indian based instruments like , Sitar , Sarangi , Tabla were used . All these combination took the song to such a great height that it remained there forever & we still cherish it today nearly 50-60 years after it was created . Modern approach of track recording , recording vocal one day & orchestra another day , mixing ,heavy rentals for recording studios as Acoustics , Recording equipment are all running into
millions of rupees , This results songs completed in few hrs compared to days
weeks taken to create songs like this . That is the reason for the state of music today . Hear it & forget it in 60 days & not remembering it for 60 years

For song Tere Bin Soone Nain Humare of album: Meri Surat Teri Ankhen2012-11-26 14:20:50

Dear Nikhil in one way you are 100 percent right , that this song brings us the wonderful memories of those days . College those days had no co-education
The chance for romance was Zero , But the one thing I remember is my mother repeats it even today that spending time on studies compared to spending time listening to these songs would have taken me to a very high level. No regrets as hearing such songs as this has given us so much of pleasure in the days there was no other entertainment other than Binaca Geethmala & Key wound Gramaphone is some thing I cherish as the best pleasure of life , what Lyrics , Composition & singing which would be unmatched even after many centuries & to me These are as precious as Indian or British History

For song Yeh Mera Prem Patra of album: Sangam2012-11-23 14:14:23

For song Karvaan Guzar Gaya of album: Nai Umar Ki Nai Fasal2012-11-16 13:16:05
Rafi Saab - Roshanji combined for very few Films due to Roshanji early death
in 1967. Every song of this great combination are more precious than any gem
in this world . Neeraj Lyrics takes this song as high as the Octave capacity of Rafi Saab . What a beautiful & wonderul song .

For song Jo Wada Kiya Woh Nibhana Padega of album: Taj Mahal2012-11-02 13:36:46
Dear Julius you are 100 percent right , No longer such songs are there , REcording studios have become too expensive & a song has to be through in a few hrs . These songs were rehearsed & practiced & LakshmiKanth ,at the inaugration of Rafi Academy said Rafi sab would insist on rehearsal take & only then go for the actual take such was the dedication of every one .

For song Himagiri Thanaye of album: Himagiri Thanaye Devi Krithis (classical Vol-7)2012-10-18 11:15:17
This I think is truly a record ( 108 comments for this song ) speaks about the composer , Sri Sankaran Namboodri & how popular the song is . Truly amazing
the uniform praise for Sri Namboodris rendering . I have no knowledge about the intricacy of Music Theory as I have had no basic lessons But having heard all the stalwarts . All one can say Music is best enjoyed through the Lyrics its meaning ,Sruthi & diction & style of presentation without sacrificing the basics of carnatic music as visualised by the great saints . The more the deep we go the more we become critical , controversies & so on . Music should always remain as a tonic to the ears , mind & soul

Oh mind, worship goddess Kamalamba, and cast aside attachment to this illusory world.

She is attended on by Lakshmi and Sarasvati. The beauty of Her neck surpasses that of the conch. She is worshiped by the celestials and resides at Kamalapura. She speaks softly and has beautiful teeth. She possesses a lotus-like face.

She is the presiding deity of Sarvasha Paripuraka Chakra and is the beloved of Paramashiva. She is the mystic Yogini, worshiped by the sage Durvasa. She annihilates miseries. She is Hamsini, the supreme one in the company of great sages. She is the bestower of true bliss through salvation. She is the ever-auspicious one. She is also known as Katyayani and Sharvani. Her dark tresses exceed the dark hue of a swarm of bees. She is the mother of noble Guruguha and is blemishless. She destroyed the arrogant Bhandasura. She delights Shaktis such as Kamakarshani. She is the attributeless supreme spirit and is the form of the world.

For song Kamalamba Samrakshatu (first Avaranam) of album: S Rajeswari - Kamalamba Navavarna Krithis2012-10-16 10:34:23

For song Woh Sham Kuchh Ajeeb Thi of album: Khamoshi2012-10-13 20:55:04

This beautiful Composition is in the raga Vachaspathi & what a melody to the ears
In many interview Sri Lalgudi has said that it seemed to him That most of
Sri Papanasam Sivan creation was created just for his playing . I feel how true it is listening to this song

For song Nadaloludai of album: Nadaloludai - Lalgudi G. Jayaraman2012-09-25 10:41:38

Watch this beautiful Pantuvarali Krithi in the divine voice of MSS Amma Live

For song Guni Jano Bhakt Jano of album: Aansoo Aur Muskan2012-09-20 13:59:56
Kishore Da went through very difficult times Due to Income tax problem . This song
Qamarji has so beautifully penned it Giving us an insight to all the artiste & the films in which they were popular . He also ends the song with the message how no one can escape the Income tax Net . Kalyanji - Anand ji music starting with a Bajan type composition ends hillariously . I had watched this song with Kishore da
Live on stage & what a stage artiste he was . That memory can never be erased from my mind

For song Beqarar Karke Hamen Yun Na Jaiye of album: Bees Saal Baad2012-09-20 13:49:39

For song Ankhon Mein Qayamat Ke Kajal of album: Kismet2012-09-20 13:39:20
Recently I read that due to some communication gap during Sawan Ki Ghata
recording The great Rafi Saab - O.P. Nayyarji association drew to a close ( an incident that O.P.Ji never forgave himself till the end ) . This brought Mahendra Kapoor to O.P.ji fold . And Mahendrajis great vocal chord & Op.ji brilliant music gave listeners as much pleasure as Rafi Saab - O.P.Ji numbers

For song Jap Jap Jap Jap Re of album: Sharada2012-09-20 13:26:08
Mukeshji with his first few songs in his career sounded a lot like the
Legendary K.L.Saigal . Hence most of his songs including the great title
song of Awara had this soft melancholy type of rendering . C.Ramachandra was a barrier breaker Music Director who could compose Anarakali songs as well as songs like this . This is truly a very very rare Mukeshji rendering But the great singer has risen to this Ramachandra challenge & has given listeners such an entertaining song

For song Choon Choon Karti Aai Chidiya of album: Ab Dilli Door Nahin2012-09-20 13:10:51

After this song for the next 11 years Rafi Saab SJ Duo combined at an average of 4 songs per year minimum . It also started Rafi Saab Peak decade in his career & last but not least Rajendar Kumar became Jubilee Kumar for quite a number of years thanks to Rafi Saab singing all his songs

For song Lakhon Hain Nigahon Mein of album: Phir Wohi Dil Laya Hoon2012-09-20 12:52:41

For song Nam Japan of album: Live At Russia Vol 12012-09-16 13:58:32
What Sri Chithan Sir has said is 100 percent true . To escape from a small mistake a lie is uttered & from there many more lies have to be uttered to cover up that . Look at Visionaries Like Sant Khalas who even in those days when life was so simple has visualised what is happening in the world today . Ammaa has rendered it
in Moscow when she was nearing 70 to what high octave she reaches so easily is a tribute to her divinity combined with rigorous practice & rehearsal . Oh how beautiful it is to hear

For song Tolliyunu of album: Balaji Pancharatnamala Sri Annamacharya Samkirtanas Vol-22012-09-16 12:41:24
In this song, Annamaiah visualizes Krishna as the divine child, lying on
a banyan leaf and floating on ocean. He says that Venkatesa is none other than Krishna.

P tolli yunu marrAku toTTelane yoogegana
chellu baDi noogeeni Sree ranga SiSuvu ||

Long ago child Sri Ranga floated on the ocean, lying on a banyan leaf (Vatapatra Sayee).

C1 kaliki kAvEri taragala bAhu latalanE
talaga kiTu ranga madhyapu toTTelan
palu mAru danu noochi pADagA noogeeni
chilu pAla nelavi tO Sree ranga SiSuvu ||

Beautiful waves of the river Kaveri are like delicate arms, constantly swinging the banyan
leaf like a cradle. The child Sri Ranga is pretty with his lips smeared with sweet milk.
He is comforted by swing and song.

C3 vEdamule chErulai velayanga sEshuDE
pAdu konu toTTelai paraga gAnu
Sree dEvi tO gooDi Sree vEnkaTESuDai

The Vedas are his garlands. Adi Sesha is his swing. Sri Venkatesa is relaxing with his
consort Sridevi. That child Sri Ranga is Venkatesa himself.

For song Okaparikokapari of album: Balaji Pancharatnamala Sri Annamacharya Samkirtanas Vol-22012-09-16 11:53:50
This is a part of an LP record & also in a Annamacharya Album & hence the elaborateKaraharpriya Alapana was not possible . Whereas MSS Amma rendering Chakani Raja or Pakkala Nilapadi has the elaborate Alapana , Neraval & swaras as they are all close to 30 mnts . Thanking the member for giving the valuable information that Sri Dhikshithar has not composed in Karhara Priya , But he has composed in a closely related raga Harapriya

For song Narayananu Nama of album: Hari Bola2012-09-16 11:06:23

it is rendered captivates you & transports you to the abode of Lord Narayana

For song Dhawaithamu Sukhama of album: Brova Baramma Vol - 12012-09-15 10:18:18
Yes I agree with the member that it is an eternal dilemma to arrive at the
right answer . Each saint Be it Sri Adhi Shankracharya , Sri Ramanujam
& Sri Madhwacharya were Incarnation saints & gave their philosophy so that it covered the entire aspect of a humans career in this earth. Many a time people who visit Thirumala have to wait hrs to get darshan or others say
some one took me inside the temple but when I looked around he disappeared. All these aspects are covered by both as an Individual aspect of patience to wait for the Lords Darshan as well as the Lords blessing . I suppose ultimately it is the essence which has to be drawn from these philosophies for leading a peaceful & a meaningful life rather than going too deep into it which may only leave bitterness without gaining anything real

For song Endaro Mahaanubhaavulu of album: Pancharathna Krithis On Keyboard2012-09-12 08:48:28

O God Narayana, make me to chant (smaraNeya) the sweet essence (sArAmRuta)
of your (ninna) name (nAmada) on my toungue (nAligege barali)

Let me place (oLagirisi) your (ninna) thousand (sAsira) names (nAmava)

For song Muruga Muruga of album: M S S - Live At Carnegie Hall - Vol. 22012-09-05 10:08:03
Meaning of This wonderful Composition in Saveri sung so beautifully by Ammaa gives you the Presence of Lord Muruga before your eyes

Even as I utter (“enrAl”) the words 'murugA, murugA' will your (“unran”) heart (“uLLam”) not melt
(“urugAdO”)? And, even as I welcome you and request your presence (“varuvAi varuvAi enrAl”), will
you not come (“vArAyO”) to me with pleasure/delight/care (“parivODu”)?
Even if perchance (“orukAl”) I have been negligent (“kuRai SeidAlum”) in my duties toward you, Oh
Lord who has conquered his senses (“kandA”), who showers (“tandiDum”) grace (“aruLE”) endlessly,
isn't is enough if I (“nAn”) were to merely think (“ninaindAlum”) of your (“un”) feet (“pAdam”) and
call out your name day (“pagalum”) and night (“allum”) to be saved?
Oh handsome (“azhagA”) embodiment (“vaDivam koNDa”) of love (“anbE”)! My Lord did you (“nI”)
despise (“veruttAyO”) me for the innumerable sins/mistakes (“pizhiagaL”) that I (“nAn”) may have
unknowingly (“ariyAdu”) committed (“Seida”) and become irritated/angry (“sinandAyO”) with me? Oh
Lord (“dEvanE”) of lords (“dEvAdi”), residing (“vAzhum”) in the mighty (“mA”) town (“nagar”) of
tiruccendUr (“sendil”), I humbly request that you patiently tolerate (“poruttE”) my (“en”)
inadequacies/deficiencies (“kuraiyellAm”) and shower your grace (“aruL SeivAi”) on me, for I am but
a small and destitute individual (“SiriyEn”)!

Who sleeps on the lap of Lakshmi,
Who sleeps on the ocean of milk,
And who sleeps on the banyan leaf.

For song Palinchu Kamakshi of album: Selected Krithis Of M.s.subbulakshmi Cd-12012-08-31 11:08:38
Meaning :
Protect me Oh sacred Kamakshi. Oh Mother, you are destroyer of sins.
When I have been imploring you always in so many ways,
why are you not responding? Please dispel my distress expeditiously.
You are known for showering happiness on the righteous men who always meditated upon you in their inner hearts. You fructify the desires of their heart and secured fame. You are the embodiment of compassion who saved this world with motherly love. I am your child. Please shower your love.
This sacred idol with indescribable effulgence and with inspiring glory is the embodiment of all virtues. Can such a sight be found anywhere else in this Universe? I don’t know what rituals I performed to be blessed with the sight of your lotus feet. Oh Mother, listen to my prayer.

This is a great composition , of Thyagraja , beautiful Neelambari raga , still
the real beauty to the ears is the rendering & the style of rendering ,Sri Santhanam one of the best exponent of the last century has rendered it exactly the way Lord Thyagaraja had visualised . The effect given to this Neelambari Raga in a soft & a measured manner is truly breath taking & so sweet to the ears , pleasant to the mind & gives so much of peace & pleasure to the listener

For song Akele Hain Chale Aao of album: Zindagi Ka Safar - Rajesh Khanna2012-08-24 13:37:29
This is one of the earliest song on Rajeshji in the Film Raaj . Music by Kalyanji - Anandji. What a rendering by Rafi Saab . The High octave he reaches , reaches it so easily . I have seen many live programme of Rafi saab & the way he reaches the high octave would have no strain on his face no significant lip movement & still the song pitch would go higher & higher what an artist , with what blessing he should have been born & what a blessing that Thomas Alva Edison invention of Gramophone is enabling us to still listen to this Divine voice which disappeared from this earth 32 years back

For song Achha To Hum Chalte Hain of album: Aan Milo Sajna2012-08-24 13:00:57

For song Taarif Karoon Kya Uski of album: Kashmir Ki Kali2012-08-01 20:54:56
Recently I watched a clipping of Shammiji speaking about his association with Rafi Saab & he spoke about this song. He discussed with Rafi saab of giving different twist to Tarif Karoon Kya Uski in the closing lines of the song . Rafi Saab fully endorsed it & said definitely he would render it the way Shammiji required . O.P. Nayyar saab who heard it was furious that Shammiji & Rafi Saab was by passing his composition. Rafi Saab immediately told Nayyar Saab . What is your problem . Shammiji is going to act I am going to sing . You record it the way Shammiji requires if in the end it does not come out well you can always clip it . Nayyar saab hesitantly agreed to it & after seeing the clipping & Rafi Saab rendering fully endorsed the added value of the song

For song Subhanallah Haseen Chehra of album: Kashmir Ki Kali2012-08-01 20:46:49
Be it Shankar- JaiKishan or O.P. Nayyar giving music in Films with Shammi Kapoor Knew Very well the type of composition to give & Rafi Saab who knew Shammiji too well matched the composition with his divine golden throat & went one step further to enhance those songs which have made them immortal & this song is a song of Rafi Saab Jaadoo

For song Main Bambai Ka Babu of album: Naya Daur2012-08-01 20:18:16
During the inaugration of Rafi Music Academy . Jeetendra spoke about the amazing talent of Rafi Saab to render the song as close to the artis voice . This song on Johnny Walker proves Jeetenderjis observation & in the same platform Lakshmikantji too emphasised this great factor of Rafi Saab

For song Waqt Se Din Aur Raat of album: Waqt2012-08-01 19:59:53
This was the only song of Rafi Saab in this film & what a rendering bringing out the pain . Splendid Raviji composition

For song Yeh Ansoo Mere Dil Ki Zuban Hai of album: Hamrahi2012-08-01 15:21:13
Remembering Rafi Saab on his 32nd Death Anniversary
I would like to quote Shankarji (of shankar-jaikishen) :
“Rafi Miya was of course the best. There was some jaadoo in his voice that appealed to both the
ganwar and the sophisticate. Some of his songs like Yeh aasoon mere dil ki zuban hai, touch
people even today.More important, he was a great person…a sharif man. If you told him you
couldn’t pay him immediately, he’d refuse to take it even later when you offered him the money.
Sometimes, a song would make him so happy, he would refuse to take the payment for singing it.
The pleasure he got out of singing them was his reimbursement.
He donated to charitable causes very generously and never spoke ill of anyone.No praise is enough for Rafimiya…there can never be a man like him.
Jab tak duniya mein sound exist karega, Rafi Sahab ko koi naheen bhool sakta
My heartfelt tribute to this man of God.

For song Is Rang Badalti Duniya Mein of album: Raj Kumar2012-08-01 14:43:37
One gets a strange feeling listening to this song of Rafi Saab for Shammi Kapoor
However what a superb rendering . The voice modualtion is truly great & superb

For song Man Re Tu Kahe Na Dheer Dhare of album: Chitralekha2012-08-01 12:10:47
In 1985 when vote was taken for top songs composed & sung in Bollywood
films , this song was No. 1 . It is a tribute to divine rendering , divine composition
& what a poetry by Sahirji.I think for many centuries this song would not loose its No. 1 spot

For song Suhani Raat Dhal Chuki of album: Dulari2012-08-01 10:40:27
Rafi Saab was a total perfectionist, a benchmark that can never be matched. To prove this statement, I would like to cite the anecdote as told by Naushad Saab himself a few years before his death. Naushad Saab recorded the song Suhani Raat Dhal chuki Na Jane Tum Kab Aaoge for the movie DULARI which you can enjoy every night even today. Next day after the original recording Rafi Saab came to Naushad’s home and said that he thought about this song whole night and felt that he did not do full justice to his composition although Naushad was fully satisfied. He wept like a child requesting Naushad to record again and Naushad could not believe the dedication of this singer. Naushad recorded the song again and Rafi was satisfied.

For song Hue Ham Jinke Liye Barbad of album: Deedar2012-08-01 10:32:25
This was the film that really brought Rafi Saab to the Lime Light . Though Rafi Sab was just 24 yrs what a Matured voice & no doubt on why Naushad Saab Never looked back the next 25 years on any other singer for his composition .

For song Man Tarpat Hari Darsan Ko Aaj of album: Baiju Bawra2012-08-01 10:11:57
Recently I read an article , where a Nepalese Rafi Saab Fan was so moved by this song that he travelled all the way to Bombay ( as it was called when Baiju Bawra was released ) to touch the feet of Rafi Saab , take his blessing & got back to Nepal .

Let the mother of universe Kamalamba be victorious,
Let the Kadamba flower full of love, let my mother and let Kamalamba be victorious,
Let the divine image reflected in our mind and let Kamalamba be victorious,
Let her who is in the temple in the middle of Sri Chakra who is a wish fulfilling gem
Let her who is the throne of Lord Shiva and let her who is part of Shiva's body be victorious.


She who is the great beauty of the three towns who is worshipped by Vaarahi and others,
She who is queen of queens who lives in the Sarvananda maya chakra,
She who is sweet scented is being meditated by me.
She who is the cause of the growth of Sun, Moon and Fire,
She who is without comparison an expert in removing three types of pains,
She who appeared in a pretty form as a result of prayers of Indra and others,
She who is by nature is more divine than divine, protects me out of her mercy.


I salute the mother, who is a divine mother,
Who blesses her devotees with greatness?
Who is being worshipped by every thing that is born?
As a divine Goddess using Vama (left) and other methods,
Who is being worshipped by god of love and others using twelve methods,
Who is the form of mantras staring with ka, ha and sa,
Who loves Lord Shiva and is the mother of Guru Guha.
Let my mind along with love be on you who shines with the light of Brahman,
She who is known by several names and several forms,
She who exhibits the art of love and proves perfect identity of self.

She who holds the bow, five arrows, the noose and the goad,
Symbolizing the mind, five senses, attachment and repulsion,
She who is the most secret yogini.

She who enjoys being in the town of the lotus,
She who makes devas, men and sages happy,
She who grants boons to Guru Guha.

Whether you see or not, salvation is the ultimate. ||
C Birth and death are true.
The life in between is drama.
This world is illusion and the ultimate is liberation. ||
C Eating food, wearing clothes is routine.
Ultimate consequences of good and bad deeds will accompany you.
After crossing that stage only, there is liberation. ||
C No one can be cut off from his sin or virtue.
All the time it is illusion.
Sri Venkatesa rules from above.
It is a long way to attain salvation. ||

For song Bantu Reeti of album: Hare Rama Hare Krishna Vol-12012-04-25 11:36:27
This beautiful Krithi is in the raga Hamsanandam & so beautifully rendered by MSS
Amma . Thanking the member for the Lyrics

Meaning :

In this beautiful Bantureethi Kolu Carnatic song, Sri Thyagaraja swamy pleads with Lord Ram to give him the post of a guard for Rama. The symbolic meaning is that he always wants to be in his presence always (Sri Rama's Sannidhi).

In the Anupallavi, Sri Thyagaraja Swamy says that, the guard’s post should be such that he is empowered to destroy all the demons which are Arishadvargas (Arishad Vargas are the six passion of mind, they are Kama - lust, craze, desire; Krodha - anger, hatred; Lobha - greed, miserliness, narrow minded; Moha - delusory emotional attachment; Mada or Ahankara - pride, stubborn mindedness; and Matsarya - envy, jealousy, show or vanity, and pride) and since the guard is empowered to do so, he needs such a guard's post.

In the Caranam, Thyagaraja says he should be blessed with the emblem of Ramabhakti, given a sword called Rama Naama (the name of Rama) to perform his guard's job.

You are perceptible through the VEDA-s, your eyes resemble the petals of the lotus blooming in the autumn, your form surpasses the beauty of Cupid, you sport a beatific smile, you protect the cowherds, oh the light of the moon dynasty! You are adorned with the beautiful feathers of the peacock, and you enchant the devotees, who have shed their egos, please protect me.
Please protect me oh lord of the universe! You, whose face resemble the lotus, and have GARUDA for mount. You are worshipped by BRAHMA, have a forehead like the crescent moon, with shining dark tresses which resemble dark clouds, you annihilate the cruel and formidable demons. You recline on the ocean of milk, wearing KAUSTUBHA garland, which adds to your beauty. Please protect me oh lord! Who reside in SESHAPURA.

The Meaning of this Great krithi which has been rendered with so much of Bakthi
By Ammaa . The krithis beauty is enhanced by Radha Vishwanathan singing
at a slightly higher octave

Mother of the three worlds! Save You,
To whom would I turn to?

You caused Love's heart to flutter,
Hear my plea; save me,- come hither.

Who else is my savior in the world?
Who lends an ear to my pain unfurled?
Do I wear You thin?
But, this is the moment!
Grant without delay!
O lotus eyed graceful Goddess!
Save me this day!
As You bestow limitless pleasure;
My faith's upon You in full measure.

O Benevolence, cease mulling!
Save this single soul, can You not?
Pity me who swerves not!
Even the Trinity's at Your feet, hailing.

Ocean of compassion! Rush to me!
With Your grace, save me!
Child of the Mountain King,
Out of Your limitless mercy,
May I atone for each travesty.

Lotus eyed Mother of the boy fierce!
You grant all our desires!
Cleanser of great sins of the ages!
Adored of the Four and all the sages!
O Mother! My sole refuge!

The event that inspired Thyagraja to compose this great krithi sung so Beautifully
by MSS Ammaa

An invitation from his far-flung disciples and admirers took Thyagaraja on a pilgrimage which extended upto Tirupati. When he reached the Tirupati temple to have the darshan of Lord Venkateswara, the drawn curtain at the sanctum sanctorum moved him to composer the song Terateeyaga raga (Gowlibanthu) in which he moans "Oh Tirupati Venkataraman! Could you not remove the screen, the screen of anger, arrogance and jealousy, which, taking a firm stand within me, keeps me out of the reach of Dharma and other Purusharthas including Moksha? It effectively hides from vision, the immaculate light of the lamp, Jnana. By the existence of this screen, my mind gets caught by evil, just as ignorant beasts are got into the Hunter’s net. I have been following you faithfully, I pray promptly; remove the screen". Promptly the screen was removed and he had a good darshan of the Lord.

For song Brochevarevarura of album: M S S - Nada Suda Rasa - Vol. 12012-04-25 10:04:34
The original Version of this Krithi rendered by MSS Amma was on 2 sides
of HMV 78 RPM Gramaphone record . It Had violin by the Legendary
Mysore Chowdiah & the rendering was also at a slightly higher speed . All in
all a truly beautiful Vasudhevacharya's Krithi that is popular to this day though
it is over 60 years since it came in the form of a record

For song Viribhoni (varnam) of album: M S S - Bhogindra Sayinam - Vocal2012-04-25 09:42:59
One can easily play this Varnam in Violin at this speed , But rendering it in vocal
though this is the basic lesson for carnatic singers is a very tough task indeed .
Shear sadhana & the way of presentation for the common man to hear & enjoy
there are very very few as the Way Ammaa Presented it . This song is a truly
wonderful example that would glue any one to enjoy & derive maximum pleasure

For song Mamava Pattabhirama of album: Hare Rama Hare Krishna Vol-12012-04-25 09:20:46
Sri Dhikshithar Krithis's beauty has just no comparison . However if one
follows his krithis it can be seen how difficult it is to sing them Years of
Sadhana is required & the beauty of Amma's voice & presentation matches this great Krithi on Lord Rama
Meaning :
Protect me Rama who is victorious and who is crowned as king! Possessing the name that was worshipped by Hanuman!

Possessor of feet that are as soft as tender leaves! Bearer of the bow called Kodanda! Dark complexioned figure! Lotus eyed! Perfect one! Descendant in the clan of Raghu! Rama , who is benevolent!

Surrounded by Bharata, Lakshmana and Shatrughna, carrying fly whisks and umbrellas! Worshipped by Vibhishana, Sugriva and other prominent beings! Blessed by sages such as Atri, Vashishta and others! Son of Dasaratha! Seated in a gem bedecked throne under a bejeweled canopy, along with Sita! Of noble bearing! Purest of the pure! Friend of Subrahmanya! Moon to the ocean like clan of the Sun! Protector of the earth! Rama!

For song Hai Isi Mein Pyar Ki of album: Hare Rama Hare Krishna Vol-12012-04-21 13:19:37
The greatness of a music director can be studied by the way he stresses on
every aspect of the song . Mala Sinha on whom all the great numbers of
Anpad was composed said that for every song Madanji discussed in detail
with her about her role & that was one of the important aspect of Madanjis
composition . No doubt on such sweet & melodious composition song after song

For song Tum Aaj Mere Sang Hans Lo of album: Aashiq2012-04-03 15:18:36
Kindly watch Live this Lively song in eternal memory of Raaj Saab & Mukesh Saab

For song Mehtab Tera Chehra of album: Aashiq2012-04-03 15:01:00
Remembering Mukeshji a lot . His voice which had a lot of K.L.Saigal in it & thus
was ideally suited for some great songs apart from the fact he was the voice for RajKapoor's till the very end .Particularly Shankar - JaiKishan used him with a telling effect , as they were not only the only Music directors for RK Films from 1948 -to 1968 but also due to the fact that RajKapoor saab had a wonderful ear for music they got Mukesh saab to give some truly great numbers . This film had many wonderful songs like this by Mukesh

For song Mann Mora Banwra of album: Raagini2012-04-03 14:39:55
This is one of the three songs that Rafi Saab sang for Kishore Saab , The other
2 being Ajab Hai Dastan from Sharaarath & Apni Aadat hai from Pyar Deewana . The reason for Rafi Saab singing was Kishore Saab was tried initially & he expressed his inability to get the desired results for the song

For song Main Bengali Chokra of album: Raagini2012-04-03 14:32:11
As in real Life so too in picture was Kishore Saab A Bengali & Padmini
though from Kerala grew up in Madras ( now Chennai ) . Hence it was an apt & wonderful picturisation , Lyrics , great composition & brilliant rendering by the ideally suited singers Kishore Saab & Aashaaji . A million thanks to Hummaa for uploading the song a highly popular song but strangely not many sites have it . We would be eternally greatful to Hummaa for this wonderful treat

For song Kal Raat Zindagi Se Mulaqat Ho Gayi of album: Palki2012-04-03 13:31:10
Rafi Saab alone could have rendered such an intricate composition which is a Hindustani Classical Raga Malika . What a composition by Naushad Saab who must have been inspired by the fact that the rendering was by Rafi Saab . Shakeel Saab too would be remembere eternally as The Tridev gave audience pleasure for over
18 years

For song Na Aadmi Ka Koi Bharosa of album: Aadmi2012-04-03 13:23:33
Naushaad Saab who Realised the immense talent of Rafi Saab used these
small poetry at the begining of the song like this song in many film . So Beautiful
this song is in all aspects & Rafi Saab singing is so melodious & haunting that Rafi Saab can never be away from his fans hearts even for a second is my honest opinion

For song Madhuban Mein Radhika Nache Re of album: Kohinoor2012-04-03 13:09:11
An incident took place after the song was composed recorded & presented to the Producer / Director for shooting . This song was
not accepted as The Producer felt it was too classical for audience approval & wanted the song to be re - composed .
Naushaad Saab totally broke down as so much of effort including almost a year training to Dili Saab for Sitar learning had gone into
the song . Naushad Saab informed Rafi Saab & Rafi Saab Immediately rushed to the Producer & pleaded him to retain the song &
said he would not take a single pie if the audience did not accept the song . It is history now to what extent this song contributed to
the success of Kohinoor & when the Director / Producer rushed to Rafi Saab house for payment after the release of the Film ,
Rafi saab refused the payment & said Audience acceptance is more than the fees for the song . What a song , composition ,
rendering & picturisation . Such song are once in a 1000 years song like Rafi Saab voice

For song Ehimudam of album: Narayana Teertha Tharangam2012-04-03 11:43:04

Sanakaadhi rishi’s with all hardships and toiling attained the purity
that you got easily by being his mother!

This wonderful rendering by MSS Ammaa is in the Raga Jagan Mohini

Which glow (“yandu”) in the navel (“naabhi”), heart (“hrut”), neck (“kanta”), tongue (“rasana”) and nose (“naasaadhula”) of the human body.
Which shine in the four Vedas (“Dhara Rig Samaadulalo”) and in the sublime Gayathri Mantra as its essence (“Hrudayamuna”). Which sparkle (“shubha”) in the hearts (“maanasamuna”) of the celestials (“sura”), of worthy Bhusuras and of Tyagaraja.

Hearing this song , I would like to quote Sri T.M.Krishna Which would summarise

T.M.Krishna writes
Ikanainanaa a small krithi in a obscure raga called Pushpalathika. What can you do with this krithi? A very small krithi and a raga which hardly has any scope? Well if M.S.Subbalakshmi was with us today and singing you would have heard the answer from her. Her nereval at the line Akalanka Neeve took all of us to dizzy heights.

And sing the name of cloud colour'd yet

Drowsest thou; what for, our pet?
Beloved bride, listen and consider, our damsel.

Handed the grand sleep over unto thee?

Trimmed and dressed, open the door;
Listen and consider, our damsel.

Kicked deftly the treacherous cart, to a shatter
On the serpent alighted in ocean had set sleeping;
Kept this seed in mind, monks and yogis
Arise gently and Hari they mumble;
This chant pierces the mind as a rumble;
Awakens and enthuses like a roar to assemble
Listen and consider, our damsel.

Oh! Rain! Gracious alike ocean, pupil of my eye;
Thou shalt never flout this attitude
Enter sea, emerge replete, ascend a mass dark in space;
Colour a la form of Lord Eternal, Let lightning flash
Thunder shoot as wheel and dextrogyral
In the hands of Padmanabha, His arms a fortitude;
Brook no delay, force a cloud burst;
Pour down as would darts from Sarnga lash
To facilitate life on earth bright;
And the Margali bath to our delight;
Listen and consider, our damsel.

Donor cows to stand still, with udders thick,
Allow milking to fill vessels copious;
To ordain never vanishing wealth bounteous;

Help the worthy and poor utmost by gift or alms toss'd
With mind pleasant, study the chores engross'd;

And the lad with dark complexion, handsome eye
And face sunny bright pleasant as moon

To the esteem of this earth as a boon;
Oblige, involve, listen and consider, our damsel.

Unni Krishnan Has sung so sweetly from the bottom of his heart

Meaning of 'ododi vandhen kanna' in dharmavathi raagam composed by Ambujam krishna:

Realizing (aRindu) the relationship/bond/connection (uRavu) between (uLLa) you (unakkum) and me (enakkum) , I have come (vandEn) running (ODOdi) to you, Oh krishNa (kaNNA)!

After observing (Seidu) countless (kOTAnukOTi - literally 'many crores') austerities (tavam), hailing (azhaittu) you as (enRu) gOvindA, (I have come running) to/near (iDai) brindAvan (brindAvanattu) in order to see (kANA) you (unai)!

The faces (mugam) of the gOpis (gOpiyargaL) uniting with/meeting (kUDUm) you as they behold (kANavE) your charming, flute-playing (kuzhal-Udum) grace/beauty (ezhil), display conflicting emotions : they drop their eyes, overcome by shyness (nANavE) even as their faces (mugam), desirous of (vizhaiyunra) love (kAdal), seek (nADavE) you! And watching this, you get a kick out of this, and a small, mischievous smile (muruval) plays at the corners (Oram) of your lips (idazh), causing a fleeting (ODavE) dimple (Suzhittu) on your cheeks. As you, the Lord (nAthan) of the world (jagat) create (pADa) music (iSai), and the woman/women (nangai) intone (pODa) the jatis, and as (ena) all (ellAm) time (kAlakAlam) forms the Sruti and rhythm (layamum) to this music, we see the essence (poruL) of the vEdas unite (onRi) and reside (uRaindiDavE) within you (onnil). Therefore, my Lord, filled (koNDu) with love (kAdal) for you that has arisen from supreme wisdom/knowledge/understanding (bodham migu) of your greatness, (I have come running to you) to lay it at (tanil) your divine/golden (pon) feet (aDi).

For song Endaro Mahanu Bhavulu of album: Thyagaraja Pancharatna Kritis2011-04-12 09:10:15
ALL Pancharathna Krithis are truly so beautiful . However this Last
Pancharathan Krithi in Sri Raga is so mesmerising

In this gem of a poem, Thyagaraja, described the greatness of the devotees through the ages. He pays his salutations to the great men who live in all the ages, A yogi attains and enjoys paramananda by reaching the stage of samadhi when in the course of sahasra chakra the power of kundalam and maheswara are joined together from where at flood of nectar is released. In the soundarya Lahiri , Shankara Bhagwat Sahesrarey praises ambal as “Padma Sahahasi, Padya Vihase”. True devotees are persons who have attained this stage.
Rama is handsome like mannada, He has a majestic walk, and we should see him clearly. Those who are engaged in Samagana should do Rama's bhajan through music based on ragam, bhava and laya, The poet says that devotion means to surrender you lotus like mind at his feet,
We should understand that paramatma lives in all the living things and therefore we should live with love and friendship. We should understand the meaning and greatness of the religion after careful study and praise the glory of Rama with a peaceful mind There will be many men, Who knowing the greatness of Shri Rama, have understood that religion without bhakti is meaningless. There will be any devotees who fall into the above category who by means of true bhakti are able to derive boundless joy by meditation on him.
I bow to all these great men and my salutation are to the immortal men who through bhakti are totally devoted to Rama and who are close Thayagaraja. My salutations to his dear followers and worshippers

For song Sadhinchene of album: Live At Music Academy Performance Of 12 Sangita-kalanidhis Vol 12011-04-12 08:55:26
This excellent Thyagaraja PanchaRathna Krithi is in the Raga Aarabhi
Sri Balamurali's Musical Knowledge & research is too well know to all music lovers . Particularly his rendering of PanchaRathna Krithis stands out
This pancharathna krithi has been well set on the easiest of ragas, Arabhi. This Krithi has been carved out in a language full of liberty, teasing tone, metaphor and simile without having a surfeit of adjectives – all the while arresting the attention of the singers. Thyagaraja swamigal, in this krithi, appeared to be telling the greatness of the lord in a lucid manner most enthusiastically. The style adopted in this krithi is very sweet in comparison to the other four kirthanas. Oh Lord you are an opportunist, You deceived your parents Devaki , Vasudeva as also the gopikas who surrendered to you, You mischievously smile when Yashoda innocently folded you with love at the thought that she too would be disappointed on being separated from him, You falsified the aforesaid words of Sruti and Smruti. You have somehow not come to me despite the fact that I was overjoyed in keeping your memory always in my heart, You preached patience, tolerance in the face of adversity freedom from anger, satsang etc; and coolly accepted my pujas, You give bhakti and peace, Despite all this you have steadfastly not come closer to me to the end, Thus this kirthana, a gem amongst the

This exceptional song rendered so wonderfully by MSS Amma is in the raga
O Rama! Supreme among Raghus ! Missing your charming smile-lit face I languish here. Knowing my mental plight, cant you come and protect me ?
O One who holds Govardhana hill! Members of your retinue who have the duty of reminding you of your daily engagements cannot fail in their duty.
Does not Garuda execute your commands expeditiously ? Could he have excused himself saying that he was staying far from the earth in Vaikunta, your heavenly abode ? Exalted Lord! Ruler of the Universe! Whom else can I appeal to ? Please shun disregard. I cant bear it. Take me into your fold.

For song Rama Nannu Brovara of album: Thyagaraja Krithis - Varios Artistes - V2011-04-12 06:47:18
O LOKABHIRAMA! (“the protector of the world”) Wont you come (“raa”) and protect (“brova”) me ? You are acclaimed as the Benefactor of the entire Creation from the tiny ant (“Chimalo”) to the Trinity (“Bhramhalo Sivakesavadulalo”).
Charmer of mankind(“prema mira melaguchunte”)! You fascinate and lure us (“Biruduvahinchina”).

Have you at any time found me seeking money(“meppulakai”) from any quarter whatsoever, to lead an indolent, artifical life of pomp and luxury? Have I been roaming about bloated with haughtiness and indulging in sinister, unscrupulous acts(“tappu panulu”)? O SITARAMA worshipped by TYAGARAJA!

For song Bhavayami of album: Sri Venkatesa Suprabhatham2011-04-12 05:22:09

I meditate on Rama of Raghu's clan,
Who is a garden of humility and good qualities.


Happily distributing his shining,
Side long glances on his devotees.


1. Ornament of the clan of the Sun God,
Who protected the fire sacrifice of Viswamithra,
Who killed Asuras like Subahu in the forest,
Who purified the sage's wife Ahalya,
Who broke the divine bow of Shiva,
Became the husband of the daughter of Janaka,
Destroyed the pride of the angry Parasurama,
And reached back the town of Ayodhya.

2. Leaving out the coronation, due to the promise, Rama
Who was like love God went to forest,
Along with Sita and Lakshmana with peace and equanimity,
Went to the home of Guha and gave his gem studded slippers,
To Bharatha when he met him at Chithrakoota,

3. He went to the greatly spread out forest of Dandakaranya,
Killed Viradha, was presented Vishnu's bow and arrows by the great Agasthya,
Was worshipped by the superior Jatayu, lived in Panchavati,
And killed Khara and others who came there,
As per the words of the fierce Soorpanaka.

4. Killer of the cruel Maricha who took the form of a golden deer,
Ravana disregarding the advice of good people stole Sita,
The sinless one searching for her reached Pampa and met,
Anjaneya, and reached an understanding with Sugreeva,
The son of the Sun who is the jewel in the sky and killed Vali.

5. Rama gave his gem studded ring with shine of hundred suns,
To the son of wind God when he was with Sugreeva,
And when he came back saw the spotless brooch of Sita,
From the auspicious one and met Vibeeshana in the sea shore.

6. He then constructed a bridge, killed endless number of Rakhasas,
Then killed the very brave and mighty ten headed one,
And accompanied by Sita purified by fire reached Ayodhya,
And crowned himself as protector of the Universe and Padmanabha.

all affluence, attracted to Srihari like a honeybee to a Tamala tree

in full bloom, give me auspiciousness.

Sri Mahalaksmi’s glance is the most pleasant. Like a female honeybee

that goes again and again to the beloved lotus, Her glances shift again

and again to Murari, Srimannaarayana’s face with love and coy shyness.

They appear like a garland. May the glances of the virgin of the Ocean

of Milk (Goddess Lakshmi) bless me with affluence!

Meaning of this beautiful PanchaRathna Krithi

Oh mind, I have achieved


Having proved false the teachings,

Of the good path, he himself taught,

He stood firm on his stand.

Swara Sahithyam

He changed his stand as per the occasion

1. As if he was trying to bring bad name to Vasudeva and Devaki

2, The president of the stage, He who produced the good Ganga,

And he is the one who follows the musical tradition.

3. He who makes fun of the Gopis,

Without fulfilling their wishes.

4. He who ever attracts the ladies and makes them worship him,

As if he is the ultimate divine God and is the Hari who,

Is the smiling baby which is fondled and kissed by Yasoda

5.He is a great lover of his devotees, the ocean of virtues,

The ever sinless one , the destroyer of problems of Kali age.

And while I kept on seeing him in the lotus of my heart.

6.Oh Hari, Oh Ramachandra, Oh Lord of Raghu clan,

Oh Soft spoken one , One who sleeps on Adhi sesha,

Oh brother of all women not related to him,

Oh unborn God, One who rides on horses,

Oh God who is praised by king of kings,

Oh God who is having healthy limbs,

Oh God who has eyes like lotus petals,

Instead of protecting me who seeks him,

7.Oh Lord Venkatesa, Oh God who shines by himself,

Oh greatest one , Oh God who resides in the heart of good people,

Oh God who wears golden silks , Oh God who shines in his ear rings,

Oh Hari , Thyagaraja extols you as the king among men and as Ramachandra.


1.He speaks words suitable to each occasion,

He has told how a good devotee should behave,

And accepted my worship done in a proper manner

And told me never to be afraid

2.He told me not to bother about people not interested,
He asked me to tolerate everything , even if I am in distress,

For he is the one who grants pleasure of Samadhi,

To Thyagaraja, without coming near him.

Ganesha Pancharatnam Stotram Meaning

I salute that remover of obstacles,
Who has modakas in his hand
Who always bestows salvation
Who wears a part of moon on his head
Who protects this world which is varied,
Who is the leader of those who cannot be lead,
Who is the cause of destruction of asuras,
And who destroys all things which are not good.


I bow before that great Lord permanently,
Who creates fear in the enemies of his devotees,
Who sparkles like the just risen Sun,
Who is saluted by Gods and Asuras
Who destroys obstacles of his devotees,
Who is the God of all devas,
Who is the God of all wealth,
Who is the God of all elephants,
And who is the leader of the army of Lord Shiva.


I bow to that Ganapati who shines like the Sun,
Who bestows peace to all the worlds,
Who removed the Gajamukhasura from this world,
Who has a very big paunch,
Who has an elephant-face which blesses,
And who is the one who shows kindness
Who is tolerant
Who is full of blessing,
And who showers great fame,
To those who salute Him.


I salute the very ancient elephant-god
Who destroys the wants of the have nots,
Who has been worshipped since ancient times,
Who is the eldest son of the lord who destroyed cities,
Who eats away the pride of the enemies of the gods,
Who is awesome at the time of final deluge,
Who wears serpents like Dananjaya as ornaments,
And who is fierce like the elephant in rut.


I always meditate only on that God with single tusk,,
Who is ever lustrous tusk is very pretty,
Who is the son of Lord who killed the god of death,
Who has a form beyond ones imagination,
Who is endless,
Who tears asunder all obstacles,
And who dwells forever in the heart of Yogis ,
Like the season of spring.

For song Santhana Gopala of album: A Vintage Collection2010-09-01 17:23:17
What to say of this song ? Sri Dhikshithar must have had Baby Krishna on his lap while composing as it has such a mesmerising effect & Sri Santhanam's rendering is probably exactly the way Sri Dhikshithar wanted it to be So sweet & brings continuous tears listening to this song .

For song Pag Ghunghru Bandh Meera Nachi Re of album: Meera2010-09-01 17:05:26

For song Theerada Vilayattu Pillai of album: Live In Singapore Vol 22010-04-26 06:53:30
Pallavi: Incorrigible playful boy, Kannan (Krishna). A terrible annoyance to all the girls on the road.

Anupallavi: He brought a fruit to eat. But while I was eating it, he tapped and stole it. Oh how she begged! And he bit deeply into it, putting all his mouth over it, and returned it to her.

CaraNam 1: I brought a beautiful flower. Before he made me cry, he said he'd put the flower in my hair if I closed my eyes. But while I could not see, he placed the flower in another's hair!

CaraNam 2: He pulls the girls' braids from behind. Before you can turn your head around, he runs away and hides. And on brand new beautiful saris he throws mud and dirties them!

CaraNam 3: Krishna brings his flute, and his music is like overflowing nectar. And we stand, as if in a trance, almost fainting, listening with our eyes closed and mouths open.

CaraNam 4: In an open mouth, Krishna would put a few large red ants; have you ever seen such mischief,the many ways in which he teases us?

CaraNam 5: Kannan would ask us to come out and play, and pay no heed to our housework; he would play to his heart's content with other youngsters, and then complain against us at home!

For song Ponnai Virumbum of album: Aalayamani2010-04-23 08:02:48
This song signifies the times when lyrics , composition , singer & location
have contributed so much which have made these songs immortal

For song Thaye Yashoda of album: Madurai Mani Iyer Vol 22010-04-23 07:09:45
This song describes the mischief of young Lord Krishna, as the gopis describe to his mother Yashoda, wife of King Nandagopa (the father of young Sri krishna). The young krishna who is the Supreme Lord, is also the darling of the gOpees and pet of the masses of brindhavan and/ or gOkulam, the vrajpuri, [the village aayarpadi in tamil language]. The gopis together say: Oh Mother Yashoda, listen to the antics of your Gopalakrishnan who created the Universe with his Maya (illusion).

pallavi: Oh mother yasodha! Please listen to the mischievous plays and tricks that your son, this krishna plays on us, who is born in your vraj kulam.
This is the first address to the judge. The case is made out first highlighting the damage it has created not only to the direct recipients, the gopees, or the directly affected, but the entire clan [aayar kulam- vrajpuri vaasis] connected with krishna the defendant. Also added, is the kulam is not ours, but, "oh, yasOdha, oh mother, oh Judge! it is yours" thus including the judge herself with the complainants. Now a "close feeling" is induced while addressing the judge as "oh mother".

anupallavi: Oh young lady, please hear, I have not seen such a mischievous boy equal to your son krishna in this world. Oh, what an extent of nuisance from him.
Since Mother yasOdha [and Judge] is also a young lady, and, whenever a woman is addressed "oh, you! Young woman" irrespective of her age, she feels more proud even though it is direct flattery. This psychology is also used while addressing the judge by calling her "thaiyalE" meaning- "oh dear young lady". Next is "Please hear. I have not seen another boy like your son in this world". Yes. It is true that there is no one equal to my krishna in this world. That is a fact. How can this young gOpi could find an equal to my krishna. This fact is put very nicely by an exclamation, even though it is in the nature of a naughty comment to the judge.

caraNam 1: Wearing thick anklets (shilambu) on his feet (kaal), bangles (vaLai) on his hands (kai), pearl (muttu) necklackes (maalai-gaL) swaying (ashaiya), he came (vandaan) outside. With his hands and feet moving, blue Krishna danced (narttanam). Thinking he was a boy (baalan), I leapt (taavi) to embrace him (anaittEn). Your son isn't a boy at all, who does this great mischief. He came (vandaan) out on the street (vaasal) with jingling sounds of the anklets (shilambu) on his feet (kaal), bangles (valai) wriggling and making noise in the wrists (kai - hand), the pearl (muttu) necklaces (maalaigaL) just swaying (ashaiya) on the chest. His hands and legs followed a rythmic pattern and this beautiful Krishna danced (narttanam aaDinaan) in the street. Seeing such a beautiful young boy (or child? - baalan) I leapt (taavi) to embrace him (aNaittEn). But to the one who embraced him, me (yennai), like a husband (maalai iTTavan - one who garlanded) he planted a kiss (muttam) on my lips (vaayil)! Yashoda, your son (un magan) is no boy - who plays all these tricks. I feel ashamed in front of others for this kind of embarrassment he gave me. I feel very bad, when many people hear this, what they will think about me, for what he did without my consent.

caraNam 2: (Complaint by the second gopi) Oh Judge! The other day some two guests visited our place, in this aaippadi. These guests were our honoured ones. They, after taking food, were in sound sleep on the pyol in front verandah of our house. KaNNan [or krishnan] came that side and saw them sleeping. At that time kaNNan finished eating some quantity of butter and had balance butter in his hands. He applied all the balance butter in the mouths of the sleeping guests and quickly vanished from that place. When we found the butter missing in the containers in the house, we went in search of the person who stole the butter. But unfortunately our honoured guests were caught. They felt ashamed because they did not steal. We also know they will not do such an act. Actually kaNNan ate the butter. But the guests were blamed for having stolen the butter since butter was in their mouths as a result of KaNNan's act. Oh what a mischief? Our king Nandhagopa did what kind of penance to have such a mischievous child. On this, what we can do except to complaint to you or appeal to you?

caraNam 3: Gopi no 3 says "Oh mother yasOdha! My daughter- in- law joined our family to enjoy and have a happy married life, thus making a meaningful life. This girl was going to river yamuna. Krishna saw her going and without giving way for any trace of doubt, led her to some place and spent lot of time with her. She could not resist his calling, because of the hypnotic power of krishna's lotus eyes. She just obeyed those powerful eyes and followed him. Both came back at the dead of night. Then he told me "Oh mother, I am your son, without any talking or creating obstruction, please give me butter of sufficient quantity". I also obliged. All people of brindhaavan - this aaippaadi, who have young daughters to be married, have fear about krishna after this incident. Please, Oh Judge! Tell me what we can do against this krishna?

See the usage of words- pankayak kaNNaal mayakki- hypnotises using the lotus eyes - his kataaksham - from those powerful eyes- is thrown on that girl, a lucky girl indeed. Can we have that bhaagyam, Oh krishna, of your direct kataaksham!

caraNam 4: Gopi no 4 says "In the cradle my child was sleeping. Krishna came that side and pinched heavily my child. The child, due to pain, cried a lot. As a reward for this mischievous act, he stole and ate lot of butter from my house. After a while, he saw the young calf tied to the post in the cowshed in my house. That calf was let loose by kaNNan and it went away. Then he tied that rope [used in tying the calf] round his neck. He went near the milching cow and started making noise "ammaa" "ammaa" as though he was the calf of our cow. That cow also thought he was the calf and started milking. He drank the milk like a calf [in the same way how a calf will drink milk from the cow] (ootturaanadi is the word used here by Sri OVS swamy). Oh! what an amount of trouble with this krishna. Please, Oh judge! Punish him adequately so that he will not repeat such acts."

caraNam 5: One day krishna came to me, started circling me as though he wants a favour from me. He asked the route to auntie's house. I told him to the extent, I could make the communication clear. Then also he hesitated. Afterwards he asked the route to go to riverbank. That also I told him to the best of my ability. Next he asked me very cleverly one thing which made me shy. He asked me a kiss and made a big noise for that. See yasOdha, you have given him that many leniency. He is not to be blamed. You have brought up the child so badly.

caraNam 6: Krishna asked for butter. I gave it. He asked for some more. Again I gave it to him. Repeatedly he asked for more and I continued to give it to him without much resistance. He ate all the butter, and then started asking, with a wink in the eyes, for the hand of my daughter in marriage. He started dancing, so nicely, then that I was awestruck. Suddenly he kicked some dust into my eyes and ran away with my daughter. Another day he came to me and started playing flute. I enjoyed his music but he started teasing me for that. Oh! krishna is a nuisance to all girls in the aaippaadi. It will be a crore of good deeds, oh yasOdha! if you punish this krishna. Oh! what a mischievous child this krishna is!

caraNam 7: Day before yesterday, he came near me like a close relative of mine and started playing in several new ways. Then he started teasing me by catching my "pallu" the edge of my sari. "Give a ball of butter otherwise I will neither leave you nor this", said krishna. That vaasudevan is this person standing here. Oh! YasOdha! Since he is a young child, I pulled him near me and took him on my lap. I also enjoyed his beautiful face, as though he is my own son- at that moment he showed all the three worlds. Oh! What a sight! Oh! Krishna and yasodha! Hey, you are blessed.
