Sondha Veedu



As I listened to the Tamil version of this song from Swades, I was visibly moved, and sometimes that lump in my throat refused to go away. "sontha veedu unnai vaa enru azhaikkuthada tamizha". How so very true ! Check out the lyrics.


UNTHAN DESATHIN KURAL

Undhan desathin kural
tholaithoorathil atho
seviyil vizhaatha
sontha veedu unnai vaa enru azhaikkuthada tamizha
antha naadkalai ninai
avai neenkuma unai
nizhal pol varatha
ayal naadu unthan veedalla viduthiyeda tamizha

vaanam engum paranthaalum
paravai ennam than kootil
ulagum engum vaazhnthaalum
tamizhan ennam thaai naatil
santharpangal vaainthaalum
angu selva maram kaithaalum
pull manakkum kooval unthan seviyil vizhaatha

gangai unai azhaikkirathu
yamunai unai azhaikkirathu
imayam unai azhaikkirathu
pala samayam unnai azhaikkirathu
kannamoochi aattam azhaikka
chinna pattaam poochi koottam azhaikka
thennam thoppu thuravukal azhaikka
katti kaatha uravukal azhaikka
nee thaan thinna nila soru thaan azhaikka

paal pola ulla vennilavu
paarthal siru karai irukkum
malar pol ulla thai mannil
maaratha sila vali irukkum
kanneer thudaikka vendum unthan kaikal
athil sezhikka vendum un maikal
intha desam uyarattum unnale
makkal koottam varattum un pinnale
anbu thaiyin madi unnai azhaikkuthey tamizha

    Excellent ! The lump in the throat is true. I liked it when A R Rahman sang it in Hindi, in Tamizh its equally touching. Thanks for posting the clip.
