O…Ponthoovalai [Ee Adutha Kaalathu 2012]

Unnikuttan,

The other day, we met an infant at a party. When we were about to leave and were saying goodbyes, you went right next to the little one and said bye in a baby voice,  shaking the tiny feet. The baby’s mom was really impressed. 🙂  I didn’t even think you noticed the baby, because you were so busy playing with your other friends… and here you were cooing to the baby!  These are the times I am amazed by your softer side. 🙂

The music of this song feels so light and just makes me wanna twirl on the lawn under soft sun and breeze. 😀  You always claim this is mom’s favorite. I absolutely love the singer’s voice. Sometimes you try to trade me with 2 repeats of ‘Wake up! Sid’ for a repeat of this song. But I know you secretly like this one too.  😀

O… Ponthoovalai
Aalolam njaan meyum vaanidangal (Repeat 2 lines)
[O…Like a golden feather
I softly graze around in the sky]
O… Kunjolamai
Saamodam njaan thedum saagarangal
[O…Like a small wave
I gladly search for my ocean]

+Fasana yeh yaarana
Ya azaadi ka taraana
[Is it a love story, this friendship?
Or a music note of freedom?]

Sooryanaalam ettithaa thilakkamaarnnum
Pookkalum kinaakkalum..vilola neela shalabham pol
[Catching sun’s rays, I glow.
In flowers and dreams, like a blue butterfly… ]
Paarukayai… Njaanithile..poyppoya swargangal nedaanai
Kaarmukile..ninnudalil..paalunna thoominnal njaanalle…
[..I’m flying here to get back my lost heaven
I’m the silver lightning which strikes across the rain clouds]

+Fasana yeh yaarana
Ya azaadi ka taraana
[Is it a love story, this friendship?
Or a music note of freedom?]

Chandrane thodaan itha pathukke vannuu…
Kaikal neetti nilkkumee vishaada mooka raavinte
[To touch the moon, softly,
this sad silent night is extending it’s hands]
Aelelam… chelelam..minnunna polthaaram njaanalle
Jaalakame nin virikal…paarunna kaattente paattalle
[I’m the twinkling star which brings respite in this depressing night
The soft breeze which flutters the window curtains, is my song]

+Fasana yeh yaarana
Ya azaadi ka taraana
[Is it a love story, this friendship?
Or a music note of freedom?]

O… Ponthoovalai
Aalolam njaan meyum vaanidangal
[O…Like a golden feather
I softly graze around in the sky]
O…Kunjolamai
Saamodam njaan thedum saagarangal
[O…Like a small wave
I gladly search for my ocean]

+Fasana yeh yaarana
Ya azaadi ka taraana
[Is it a love story, this friendship?
Or a music note of freedom?]
