“Marala Telupuna” Song in Swayamvaram
aa a aaa a mapa mapari rima rima sa a aaa – violins

marala thelupuna priyaa marala thelupuna
yedha loyala daachukunna madhurohala parimillaanni
kanu paapulu nimpukunna chirunavvula parichayyanni
marala…


viriboosina vennellalo theratheesina vidiyaalani
anuvu anuvu allukunna anthuleni virahaalani
nidhuraponi kannullalo pavalinche aasalani
cheppaleka chethakaaka… manasu pade thadabaatuni
marala…


ninna leni bhaavana edho kanulu therichi kalayadhoosi
maataraani mounamedho pedavee meedha udhigipoye
oka kshaname aavedhana maru kshaname aaradhaana
theliya raaka… thelapaleka.. manasu pade madhura baadha
marala…


Wonderful, aint it? This is quite a beautiful song (of course much better when you hear it and you know Telugu) and it has a beautiful flow to it even if you read it just the way it is written down in crude Tinglish. And one can probably guess what this song tries to depict no matter which noise spectrum (read, languages) your brain is conditioned to process as to mean something. I propose that there is extra ‘information’ carried over by music which amplifies the meaning in the words. It is emotions, my dear Watson!
I seriously wonder if we can seperate this universal humane affective information out just like we are able to polarize light and break it up into photons and frequencies vibrating on different axes and all that. Hmmm… interesting. Hari-Om. Have to meditate…
