KandA KArttikkai bAlA


During 1956-61, when I was doing my secondary school education at Pudukkottai, every Friday we used to have bhajans and shlOkams, when the school begins, for nearly an hour. Our Sanskrit teacher, Sri Srinivasachariyar, en erudite scholar, used to conduct these. He used to convert several well known songs into Thamizh or use them for other deities. There was a song in a Thamizh film, “divya darisanam taralAgAdA” on Lord KaNNan and he used to sing it on Lord Kandan just changing the words appropriately. In the same fashion, he changed the famous “KrushNA nI bEganE bArO” of VyASarAyA in Kannadam to Thamizh very nicely. This I will post later. In the mean time, if anyone wants it, I can send to them.  Since some of the words I could not recollect, I had substituted them with my own. Impressed by this rAgam and style, I too wanted to compose a song on Lord Kandan, which materialized only in 1964. Here is that song:
