  1. Is it possible to get the lyrics in Devnagari Script? There are a lot of us who can’t read Kannada and don’t like the roman script transliteration. Please? Please? Please?

    Link to watch/listen this pada rendered by Bharat Ratna Pandit Bheemsen Joshi

      Dear Ms.Meera,
      I have been following this blog for about 10 days now, and it has real helped me in keeping my mind at peace. I have observed ton YouTube, songs take much longer time to load, and often I am not in a position to listen to a full song without inturruption. So, for those interested in Bhrath Ratna Bhimsen Joshi saab’s songs in “DASWANI” I suggest the following link from RAAGA.COM.

      I hope it is of some help to the bloggers.
      Thanks again



  38. Posted by Sandeep on January 30, 2010 at 8:13 pm

    Hello Meera,

    The lyrics appear to be slightly different from the rendition by Pt. Bheemsen Joshi. Was wondering if he has exercised “artistic liberty” …. 🙂


  39. Posted by pragatih on August 10, 2009 at 4:07 pm

    Dear Meera,

    Excellent site! Please keep up this great work.

    I was looking for the meaning of this beautiful poem..Thunga Theeradi su yativara. I was wonderful if you email or post the meaning.


    Pragatih, thanks so much for your wonderful comments. I sure will post the meaning soon.

    Hi Gayathri,
    I am glad you took this path. May the Lord help you in your new journey. Thanks for your nice comments.

      Thanks for th8s 8nformative blog.
      Reg. the song “Tungateeradi ninta..”, there’s a last word in most of the lines which is given as “pELammaYya” inthe roman script rendition given on this webpage. Is that correct ? What does it mean? Is this song about Raghavendra Swamy?

      Would be nice if you or somebody would also g8ve the line by line eng translation for non Kannadigas.


  41. Posted by gayathri raju on September 20, 2008 at 7:39 am
