    You);

    Hence, I have no grievances; maNivaNNA! malai appA! GovindhA!

    You are standing behind the curtain (imples stage; You are a soothradhaari);

    Only vEdic scholars and gnAnis can see You; Even then, I have no
    grievances (implies, I have because I am not able to see You);

    During these "kali" yugam, You have come and entered and stayed as an archA
    form at TirumalA, kEsavA! No one can deny Your Existence, GovindhA!

    When the Merciful, Goddess stays in Your chest all the time, why should I
    have any "kuRai"? GovindhA!"

    My dear Sundari,

    By highlighting one of my all time favorite songs here, you have touched my heart:)
    When I first heard this song sung so soulfully by my most favorite singer, the honorable MSSubbalakshmi, I was moved beyond any words can explain. Everytime I hear this song, my eyes never fail to swell up with tears.
    A beautiful beautiful song.
    Thanks for the words here and the meaning.

    L, Kamla

    Dear Sunkan,

    Thanks for posting Rajaji's soul-stirring song. Kamla, same here, everytime I hear, tears never fail to swell up my eyes. My grandmom would make us sing this every evening during our summer holidays after her evening prayers.

    Thanks
    Vidya

    Dear Vidya,

    You seem to be a young lady of many talents. Now, I should remember this and ask you to sing it for me when we meet, without fail:)

    Hi all,

    This is my all-time favorite too. I hardly listen to any carnatic songs, because of my limited knowledge (they say kelvi nyaanam in Tamil) in music. But this one can be felt and enjoyed by any soul on earth I guess.

    Sunkan,

    Thank you for posting the song and it's meaning. You made it even more enjoyable by linking to see MSS sing.

    Malathy

    one of my all time favourite.
    I want to memorise it. But nowadays I am asking my daughters to sing it as they also like this song very much.
    Thanks also for posting the meaning.

    My knowledge of Carnatic music is very very limited. But this is one song that I love to hear time and time again.

    Anyone who has a working knowledge of Tamil can understand the meaning of this song, thanks to the simple yet meaningfully rich words.

    Thanks for including the meaning, Sunkan.
