I came here from Jo's blog. "Vaathilppazhuthil" is one of my all-time favorite songs, and I was really looking forward to listen to your version, but Castpost misbehaves :( I could hear only bits and pieces (I have to say those bits were tantalizingly sweet). Any chance of you getting an Audioblog account? Failing that, is there a way you could post an MP3 of the same?

Very nice one ...Came from Jo.
You have a wonderful voice. Keep singing.!! Look forward to more songs from you.
My 2 cents:

I noticed a hiss and your voice was too low too. Please consider buying a better mic and a good soundcard!

Nice to see another blogger / singer in the bay area. I live here too ...in Fairfield.

Meera Manohar , another great singer is also in the Bay area.!

ann said...

For BlueByrd:

1. "As the setting sun ("thrisandhya", late evening, literally)was pouring vermillion ("kumkumam") in front of me through the crack in the door, I heard your soft, sweet footsteps in my corridor."

2. "Like a heart whose strings are played (by someone beloved), like leaves that experience the (first) raindrops, and like a soul sprinkled with the water of eternal life ('Amrutham', 'amudam' in Tamil), I went all a-tingle on hearing your soft, sweet footsteps."

3. "Like a bee that is confused by a flower wearing a veil of a dewdrop, I stood there not knowing the meaning of the hymn your sweet footsteps were chanting. As the shadows painted 'kaLam's ("kolam", "rangoli") in front of me, you stood in front of me like another "thrisandhya" (late evening)."

Of course, poetry is that which is lost in translation. There is no way to translate these images in English, especially something like 'thrisandhya' which conveys a number of things -- red, and purple, and violet, and beauty, and freedom from the oppressing heat of the day, and the fragrance of jasmine flowers, and the lamps being lit, and ...

Now, if only a Tamilian friend could translate the Kannadasan poem "Malarnthu malaraatha paathi malar pole viTarntha"...

BlueByrd said...

Awwwwww Mahout aren't you the sweetest one ???

How sweet of you to translate it for me. A zillion thanks dude !! Appreciate it...and b4 i head to the lyrics ......Let me tell you that was the most beautiful translation i've seen in a lifetime !!!

"I went all a-tingle on hearing your soft, sweet footsteps." OMG ! That did it for me !!

Know what man if you write poetry anytime am publishing it !!

I might even write lyrics for my future english compositions about our own land thats when i come axe-weilding a couple yrs !! Wink ! UR BOOKED !

Awesome lyrics 2 go with a gr8 melody. Just what the doctor ordered !!

Thanks Annie & Mahout for sharin & ur time !

പാപ്പാന്‍‌/mahout said...

BB, thanks a lot for the compliments, but I remain a stranger to the poetry and its translation.

Also, thank you SO MUCH for the Kanndasan translation... Much appreciated...

ann said...

Thank You Radhika ...
I actually took the "sunshine" from one of my favs. songs in English - "ain't no sunshine" by Bill Withers.
I first heard it when my brother made an album-sort-a-thing, with my Sil's pics with this song. THe song itself is really beautiful and his album was even more beautiful,touching n romantic.He made it during that time when they had to part soon after their wedding. Now that they are together and he has got his "sunshine" back, I stole it for myself ;0). Im sure they will excuse me!!
Here goes the song ...

"ain't no sunshine, when she's gone..
it's not warm when she's away..
ain't no sunshine, when she's gone..
and she is always gone too long..
anytime... she goes away ...!!! "

try to hear the song, its a wonderful piece..

hope u like te story behind "sunshine" ..

BlueByrd said...

Goodluck for your upcoming exams !!!

The posts can wait and so can I :)

Take all the time there is if you will :)


Liked ur bro's poem very much. Must be a gr8 guy. Ur sil' the lucky one !

Seems like close-knit family. Am happy for ya'll !

Reminds me of a John Denver classic "Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy" NEAT !

Beautiful song and well sung. One doubt: The lyrics is vaari vitharum thrisandhya poke (not pole). Am I correct?
