Week 19 Updates (Week0019)

 

From the entire Raga Surabhi Team, here's wishing you all a
      VERY HAPPY & PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR 2010

This week's update contains a beautiful composition by Papanasam Sivan in Tamil, Aandavan Anbe Shakti Tharum, which roughly translates to:

     Love for Him brings us strength,
     Love for Him brings us power,
     Love for Him brings us wisdom,
     Love for Him sets us free
     ...

Let us meditate upon this song and may all our wishes come true this New Year!

Papanasam Sivan is, undoubtedly, one of the greatest tamil composers of our times.  All his songs are known to have an emotive appeal with very simple words.  He is also known to have employed lot of swaraaksharas in his compositions - the swaram and the lyric are one and the same.  To cite some examples, in the composition, "ka va va" , the letter 'ka' starts at the swara 'ga' (, in "parathpara parameswara" all the 'pa' occur at the swaram 'pa'.

That's it for this week, have a great week and year ahead!
