    Oh Varuna, the Rain-God
    Whose stature is as vast as the ocean.
    We have come to you begging for a favour.
    You should without hiding anything
    Enter the depths of the ocean
    Take water from there
    And with ferocity climb up the sky
    There blackening like the Primordial First One,
    Vishnu, the very beginning of this Universe
    And glow like His glorious Chakra
    And Thunder like His conch
    Which adorn the beautiful and the mighty shoulders
    Of Padmanabha, the God having a lotus at His navel,
    And after that like his bow Sarngam,
    Which showers a rain of arrows on His enemies
    Oh, Varuna, you should send showers!
    That we may live on this earth
    And have the sacred markazhi-bath!

    ஆழி மழைக் கண்ணா ஒன்று நீ கைகரவேல்
    ஆழியுள் புக்கு முகந்து கொடு ஆர்த்தேறி
    ஊழி முதல்வன் உருவம் போல் மெய் கறுத்துப்
    பாழியம் தோளுடைய பற்பனாபன் கையில்
    ஆழி போல் மின்னி வலம்புரி போல் நின்றதிர்ந்து
    தாழாதே சார்ங்கம் உதைத்த சரமழை போல்
    வாழ உலகினில் பெய்திடாய் நாங்களும்
    மார்கழி நீராட மகிழ்ந்தேலோர் எம்பாவாய்
    I tried to load the audio file several times. But could not load it. So...

    regards,
    Varalotti

    Dear Sridhar,

    Looks like something is wrong with your tamil font?? It is showing up all garbled . First I thought it must be my PC, but i went and checked a few other posts in tamil and they were all fine. can you please rectify.

    Thanks

    Dear Vandhana,
    I changed the font and retyped the whole song. Tell me if it is all right now.

    Dear Varalotti,

    As always, a very eloquent translation. You are pardoned for the delay. And the chanting is inspiring too. We are blessed to have you as the parrot echoing Andal's words. Thank you!

    Dear Teja,

    Another beautiful picture! You complement Varalotti's Thiruppavai work perfectly. Thank you!

    looking for more,
    Vidya

    Thanks Teja!

    Dear Teja,
    Thanks for those very kind words. This thread is being jointly managed by both of us, Teja. While you provide the visuals, I provide the audio and the script.

    The picture you have posted this week is really very good.

    This song is very special as it talks about the very process of rain. And in every case Aandal compares it to Kannan. His bow, the sudharshana chakram in his hand, the conch and even the colour of the clouds resemble that of the Lord.

    While the clouds bless us with rains, our Lord blesses us with His love. Both are essential for us to live.

    Thanks once again, Teja.

    Thanks Vidya!

    Dear Vidya,

    You were the only one to notice the missing thread and ask about it. Thanks for pardoning me.

    To be a parrot constantly echoing Aandals words is a rare blessing.

    Thanks Vidya for the words,
    Varalotti

    Thanks Laxmi!

    Dear Laxmi,
    Thank you very much for posting the audio files. I tried several times but did not succeed.
    I think Aandal wanted your share of kainkaryam in this great work.

    Thanks once again,
    sridhar

    Requesting Leave Of Absence!

    Most Gracious ILites,

    Greetings from Varalotti.

    Owing to some professional and writing commitments I am now constrained to take a short break from IL. As of now I cannot say how long will I be away. But I am hopeful it might not be longer than a month.

    If you want to reach me during this absence you are most welcome to pm me. I will definitely read your messages. I always maintain a five minutes swtich-gap between one task and another, whether the tasks are professional, personal or related to writing. I will use that time to read your pms and reply to them if called for.

    In addition to fulfilling my commitments I will also use the time to re-organise my materials, to organise my thoughts so that when I come back after a gap, I will have some thing new, some thing fresh to share with you. I will try to change the wine; but if it is not possible, rest assured, I will at least change the bottle.

    With the kind of affection I have been enjoying from you all along I am sure that you will bear with me for this absence.

    With love and affection,
    Varalotti
