My current favourite songs are Manamadurai and Poo Pookkum Oasai from Minsara Kanavu and Chinna Kuyil Koovum from Yavarum Nalam (Yavarum Nalam songs deserve a separate post). Though I like the entire lyrics of all the 3 songs very much, my current favourite lines from two of those songs are related to rain and I just can’t stop humming those!
thandhaane thandhaane maega kooTTam thandhaane
iDiyellaam taaLam dhaane
mazhai thuLi maNNil vandhu sindha chindha ezhugiradhe oru vaasam
adhu ennai vaanavillil koNDu saertthu viDugiradhe sila naeram
From Chinna Kuyil Koovum:
mazhai thuLi aayiram
kaDal maDi thaeDudhe
alaigaLaaga maaRi thuLLi aaDiDave
If only it rains here now, how great it would be! And what a great respite it will be from the veyyil!
P.S.: Just as I was about to publish this post, I saw that Word had auto-corrected chinna of Chinna Kuyil to china and this old He-She was what I remembered immediately
