Unnai Thavira Veru Illai

Unnai Thavira Veru Illai Gathi
By Neelakanta sivan
Translated by P. R. Ramachander

[Sage Neelakanta Sivan was a great composer belonging to South Travancore and lived at the end of 19th century. Though a very great composer of Carnatic music Krithis, many people do not know about him. His Disciple Papanasam Sivan is however well known. www.carnaticcorner.com/articles/nilakanta_sivan.html as well as www.carnatica.net/neelakantasivan.htm give a detailed account of this composer and his Krithis. Though he is said to have composed over 2000 Krithis very few of them are now available.]

Unnai thavira veru illai gathi yenakku,
Unnai thavira veru illai


Annayum thandhayum neeye, Akhila bandhuvum neeye,
Annai umayaal neyaa, anbarakku arul sahaayaa


1. Pakalum iravum neeye-palathaan deivavum neeye,
Sukavum dukhavum neeye-Soma chooda maniye

2. Igavum paravum neeye-Yella porulum neeye,
Sakala kalayum neeye-Sambho dhaya nidhiye

3. Kanda thevayum neeye, kanathavayum neeye,
Kandaar kakshiye, neelakanda krupanidhiye

English translation


I do not have any place of surrender other than you,
I do not have any one except you


You are my mother and father, You are all my relations
Oh friend of mother Parvathi who showers grace on devotees


1. You are day and night, you are all sort of Gods,
You are pleasure and pain, Oh God who wears moon as ornament

2. You are this as well as the other world, you are all the things,
You are all arts, Oh Shambo, Oh treasure of mercy

3. You are all that we see and also all that we do not see,
You are the sight to those who see, Oh Neelakanta, Oh treasure of mercy.
