Yes, it is. Thank you very much! I suppose being a dAsA kriti, it is sung in different rAgAs. Thanks again.

In C1, should it be maguvE? Ramakriya would clear my doubt.

I will start with some corrections.
C1: I wonder if it should be ondiddEnu bAro (instead of pondiddEnu bAro)
C2: It is probably nandanakanda (nanda's son) instead of nanda akanda
Also in C2: indireyarasane (indira's king) rather than indireya rasane
C3: Not sure about kAmanayya - I will have to look into this.

I will come back with the meaning in a little while (that is if Smt. Savithri or someone else don't do it before I come back!)

Srini avarige shubhodaya
In [c2] it is "indireyarasane"all right but it means,
the king of "indire" that is lakshmi.
In [c3] kAmanayya is "the father of cupid"
"kAmana" "ayya"
In [C1] it is "maguve"
Thank you

Smt. Savithri avare,
Thank you! I am glad you are part of this forum!
Also, good catch on maguve - I had missed it during my quick glance.
