Paluku Kanda Chakkarenu
By Sage Thyagaraja
Translated by P. R. Ramachander
Raga Nava rasa kannada
Paluku kanda chakkerunu kerune,
Koluvu koodamunanu kolusuvarini
Pilasi Dasaradhi prema meera paluke
Surula kamini manula ganama,
Darana nala kinchunnu srungara,
Rasa yuktha vaara ramnulada choosi,
Saras Thyagarajunitho pogade.
The sweet words are sweet like Sugar candy,
Oh ladies, please see
Calling with love, those great people in the hall,
As well as those who are working there, Sri Rama,
Told them endearing sweet words,
The words that Rama spoke in between,
Witnessing the ladies of heaven and Apsaras
Singing their songs in which love is mixed.
And also enjoying the interest filled dances,
To Thyagaraja with love are indeed sweet.
