Annamayya Keerthana – Pidikita Talambrala lyrics in English:
pidikita thalambraala pendli koothuru kontha
pedamarane navvene pendli koothuru |
perugala javaraalee pendli koothuru
pedda peruna muthayala meda pendli koothuru |
perantandla nadimi pendli koothuru
vibhu peru guchhu siggu pade pendli koothuru ||
birudu pendamu vette pendli kuthuru nera
birudu magani kante pendli kuthuru |

pettene pedda thurumu pendli koothuru
nedu pettedu cheeralu katte pendli koothuru |
gattigaa venkatapathi kougitanu
vadi nettina nidaanamaina pendli koothuru ||
Annamayya Keerthana – Pidikita Talambrala Meaning:
When talambralu (holy yellow rice) were showered on bride Alamelu Manga’s head by the bride groom, Venkatapati, she shyly turned her head aside and smiled.
The bride is known for her youthful grace. Her pearl-like building is famous. The bride is sitting amidst the invited ladies. She felt shy to utter her husband’s name.
She wore rich anklets and surpassed her husband in attraction. The bride and bridegroom were sitting very close.
The bride decorated her hair with a long flower garland. She wore a variety of saris. She is the treasure in the embrace of Sri Venkatapati.
