mogathai kondru vidu

Mahakavi Subramanya Bharathi was one of the greatest poets of India who was also a great nationalist as well as a person with deep devotion to god. His poems would melt the mind of any one reading them. I do not know, why he wrote this poem but it simply shakes you. You can hear the poem sung in youtube. I have given my lyrics and then english translation.


1. Mohathai kondru vidu - allal yendran

Moochai niruthi vidu;

Dekathai chaithu vidu - allal athil,

Chinthanai maithu vidu,

Yogathiruthi vidu - Allal yendran,

OOnai chidaithu vidu,

Yeka thirunthu ulagam - ingullana,

Yavayum chibavale

2. Bandathai neeki vidu - allal uyir,

Barathai pokki vidu,

Hinthai thelivakku - allal ithai,

Chetha udalakku,

Indha padargalaye - nella mena,

Yenni iruppeno /

Yentha porulilume - ulle nindry,

Iyangi iruppavale

3. Ullam kuliraatho - Poyyanava,

OOnam ozhiyatho ?

Kallam urugatho ? Amma, Bhakthi,

Kanneer perugatho ?

Vella karunayile - innai chiru,

Vetkai thaviratho ?

Villar kkariyavale - Anaithilum,

Mevi iruppavale ?



1. Oh Goddess who is the world and created all that which is here,

Kill all my passions or otherwise stop by breath,

Make my body fall or otherwise remove the thoughts that is in it,

Alter my fate or otherwise crush this body of mine.

2. Oh Goddess who is within everything and makes them act,

Remove my attachments or otherwise remove the burden of this life,

Make my though process clear or make this body in to a corpse,

Would I remain in this world thinking that this chaff is really grain ?

3. Oh Goddess who is difficult to define but is within everything,

Would not my mind get pleased? Would not this untrue pride disappear?

Would not these lying acts melt down? Oh mother, Would not the tears of devotion flow?

Would not the thirst of this dog get quenched, in the flood of your mercy?
