Hi music lovers,
I would like to start a thread for the English meanings of malayalam songs with
excellent lyrics and music. For those who find this interesting, would you please take a
few minutes to jot down the lyrics and their meanings in English of their favourite song(s).
To start with here is Athma Vidyaalayame..the song from the movie "Harishchandra". Please
note that I would encourage people to criticise if they find faults with the translation.
Sung by : Kamukara Purushothaman
Enacted by : ??
Scene: A graveyard
Here the lyricist compares the "Chudalakkad" (graveyard) to a school full of students who
are actually nothing but souls. (Athma VidyAlayame...)
//Here there are no castes and thoughts
//Those who live here are just a handful of burnt material.
IllA JAthikal..Vere VichAram
Evide Pukavar Oru Kai ChAram
//Whether one be a beggar or a king
//Here in this earth, ends up in a huge pyre
Mannithiloduvil Van Chitha Naduvil..
//The very same head that we once used to
//deck with "thilakam" and comb nicely
Thilakam ChArthi, Cheekiyum AzakAy
PalanAl Pottiya Punya Sirasse..
//You, who once wanted to capture the world
//Is now just a skull worth nothing...
Ulakam VellAn Uzariya Neeyo,
