Hi All,

Im looking for the meaning of the song Nannu brova nee (Abhogi).

Stumbled upon this site on looking. Not sure if there is a seperate thread for this. Please help me with the link if so.

The lyrics are as follows:

cinnanADe nI celimi galga kOri cintimpa lEdA shrI rAma

caraNam
nijadAsa varulagu tammulatO nIvu bAga buTTagalEdA
gaja rAja rakSaka
tanayulanu kani pencalEdA tyAgarAjanuta


Thanks!

O SrI rAma! O saviour of gajEndra! O Lord Praised by this tyAgarAja!


This much delay for you in protecting me? Tell me, what fault is there on me.


Desiring development of Your attachment, did I not contemplate even in my childhood?


Were you not gloriously born with your younger brothers who are Your true and great devotees or servants? Did you not bear and rear (your) sons?


Word-by-word Meaning


P This much (inta) delay (tAmasamA) for you (nIku) (nIkinta) in protecting (brova) me (nannu)? Tell me (palkumA), what (Emi) fault

(nEramu) (nEramEmi) is there on me (nApai).


A O SrI rAma! Desiring (kOri) development (kalga) of Your (nI) attachment (celimi) (literally friendship), did I not (lEdA) contemplate

(cintimpa) (literally think) even in my childhood (cinna nADE)?


This much delay for you in protecting me? Tell me, what fault is there on me.


C Were you (nIvu) not (lEdA) gloriously (bAga) born (puTTaga) with your younger brothers (tammulatO) who are (agu) Your true (nija)

and great (varulu) (varulagu) devotees or servants (dAsa)?


O saviour (rakshaka) of gajEndra – the King (rAja) of elephants (gaja)! O Lord Praised (nuta) by this tyAgarAja! Did you not (lEdA) bear

(kani) and rear (penca) (your) sons (tanayulanu)?


This much delay for you in protecting me? Tell me, what fault is there on me.


Notes –

Variations -

1 – dAsa varulagu – dAsa varulaku : if 'dAsa varulaku' is correct, then it will be translated as 'were You not gloriously born with your

brothers for the sake of true and great devotees?'.

Music is my passion too! I am teaching Carnatic music to kutties and mAmis in SingArach Chennai. It keeps my mind young and

fresh!
One of my favorite songs is 'Enna thavam seythanai' and I follow 'Lalgudi school'. My first Guru was my grand father and

later Sangeetha Kalanidhi Dr. S. Ramanathan. :)
