Annamayya Keerthana – Kulukuga Nadavaro Lyrics in English:
kulukaka nadavaro kommalala |
jalajala ralini jajulu mayammaku ||
oyyane menu gadali noppuga nadavaro
gayyali sripadataku kantulala |
payyeda ceragu jari bharapu gubbala mida
ayyo cemarince ma yammaku nennuduru ||
calledi gandavodiyai jari niluvaro
pallaki vattina muddu banatulala |
mollamaina kundanapu mutyala kucculadara
gallanucu gaṅkanalu gadalimayammaku ||
jamali mutyala todi cammaliga lidaro
ramaniki manula naratu lettaro |
amarinci kaugita nalamelu maṅganide
samakūde veṅkatesvarudu ma yammaku ||
Annamayya Keerthana – Kulukuga Nadavaro Meaning:
Oh beautiful maids, don’t shake the palanquin while carrying. Let not the fragrant jasmines of Mother Alamelumanga drop off.
Oh maids, walk gently without hurting her delicate body. Oh smart women, her feet might ache and the garment on her bosom might slip. She is already tired with sweat drops on her face.
Oh beautiful palanquin bearers, sprinkle cool sandalwood paste on her. If you shake her precious saree tassels, made of gold and pearls, may tremble. Her anklets are making tinkling noise.
Oh pretty women, wave auspicious “Harati” with pearls and gems to Mother Alamelumanga who is perfect in the embrace of her lord Venkateswara.
