I want mazhai!

My current favourite songs are Manamadurai and Poo Pookkum Oasai from Minsara Kanavu and Chinna Kuyil Koovum from Yavarum Nalam (Yavarum Nalam songs deserve a separate post). Though I like the entire lyrics of all the 3 songs very much, my current favourite lines from two of those songs are related to rain and I just canโ€™t stop humming those!

From Manamadurai:
thandhaane thandhaane maega kooTTam thandhaane
iDiyellaam taaLam dhaane
mazhai thuLi maNNil vandhu sindha chindha ezhugiradhe oru vaasam
adhu ennai vaanavillil koNDu saertthu viDugiradhe sila naeram

From Chinna Kuyil Koovum:
mazhai thuLi aayiram
kaDal maDi thaeDudhe
alaigaLaaga maaRi thuLLi aaDiDave

If only it rains here now, how great it would be! ๐Ÿ™‚ And what a great respite it will be from the veyyil!

P.S.: Just as I was about to publish this post, I saw that Word had auto-corrected chinna of Chinna Kuyil to china and this old He-She was what I remembered immediately ๐Ÿ™‚

    Want rain too! Read a musician’s prowess in bringing rain thro his Amrithavarshini (Only 2 out of the umpteen times he sang it). Seriously considering inviting him over and make him try :-)!

    We in bangalore are blessed that way! A week back, it was summer showers all over. Hope Madras gets respite soon.

    Hi Aparna,

    I read your blog on wordpress and was inspired to start my own blog. But I have one problem there. In appearance I want only the summaries of the post visible if sumbody visits the site, like the settings of your blog. But I am not able to customise tht. Can u guide me how to do that setting.? Please, I need help….
