Suttum vizhi by Hariharan ….

 

Bharati and Hariharan !  The ultimate combination…  It makes one speechless and is heartbreaking…..

Poetry at it’s very best!  Words won’t be able to describe this duo….

Explosive ? yes, each time I listen to this piece my heart explodes to a million pieces….  !

Suttum Vizhi  – Lyrics

Suttum vizhi sudar than Kannamma
Suriye chandiraro?
Vattakkariye vizhi – Kannamma!
Vanakkarumai kollo?

Your gaze has the brightness of the sun and moon
Your eyes reflect (*) the darkness of the skies

Pattu karuneela – pudavai
Padhittha nalviram
Natta nadunisiyil – Therium
Natchathirangalladi!

The diamonds on your dark silk saree,
show me the stars in broad daylight. (*)

Solai malaroliyo -Unathu
Sundarapunnagai than?
Neela kadalalaiye – Unathu
Nenjin alaigaladi !
Kolak kuyil oosai – Unathu
Kuralin inimaiyadi!
Valai kumariyadi – Kannamma
Maruvak kadhal kondain.

Your smile is the bloom of the garden,
Your heart, the waves of the sea,
Your voice , sweet like the koel’s
My love longs for union, Kannamma

Sathiram pesugirai – Kannamma
Sathiram yedhukkadi?
Athiram kondavarke – Kannamma
Sathiram undodi!

You talk of Rules, Kannamma
What rules do paramours (*) follow?

Moothavar sammadhiyil – Vadhuvai
Muraigal pinbhu saivom
Kathiruppenodi! – Ithupar

Elders , marriage and rituals can wait,
Can I ? Come now,

Kannatthu muttham ondru!

A kiss on the cheeks !

A Woman finding herself …..

She is a woman, finding her own space and place  in this  ever changing world.
One more human being, discovering herself,
 each day a new beginning – a new awakening .
~~
Loving, emotional, temperamental, moody, passionate ….
and trusting.  Desperately trying to be honest in the midst of  a world filled with greed and selfishness.
~~
Someone who gets  easily attached to people emotionally ….
One trait that she knows that she needs to change so as not to get hurt
But  then, she also knows that she has  her other side  too.
~~
Stubborn,  fiercely independent, wanting to break away from all the norms,
society has placed before her .
Sometimes she may even appear to be a little rebellious and arrogant  ….
Others may merely view her as a woman of respect and quiet in demeanor strictly adhering to the norms of society….
~~
But only she knows herself  to be this other  person ….
longing to  be released  from this capsule surrounding her  …
Someone who has been conditioned over the years by society with it’s usual code of conducts and morals.
~~
She can be shy and bold at the same time..
And  may suddenly come out of  her shell and reveal her innermost feelings,
or withdraw herself  within totally, unable to express what  she  truly feels.
~~
Someone  longing  to be released  from the chains tied around her .
She wants to taste the  liberty of freedom,
yet knows deep down, it’s limitations too.
~~
She is both black and white and all the hues in between,
 Finding herself strange and  complicated, sometimes she smiles to  herself .
People  may find her a little outrageous at times,
when she allows them a glimpse of her other rebellious side.
~~
Sometimes, surprising herself , she throws away all her fears and  inhibitions surrounding her.
Breaking away like a butterfly from it’s cocoon,
to spread her wings, she experiences little glimpses of paradise at times .
                                                                                 ~~
A woman who loves her  freedom, and wants to feel the flight…
She is  constantly evolving, changing, growing,
Learning, unlearning, releasing and holding .
~~
Just as a fluid  she flows …
Discovering the many splendors, life has to offer her !
A woman,  on her very own journey finding  herself….
