Ravi,

AraNangu means woman/ lady. So #4 should refer to the draupadi mAna samrakshnam episode. It does not appear related to vEdas being rescued from the deluge. (probably you must have connected it to vEda reading it as ARangam instead of AraNangu)

Yes, AraNangu here means woman. She uses this word in her tAlATTu song in kuRinji as well (aNNal rAmacandiranuDan AraNangu sItA).

Sridhar, KMR thanks...I will correct the meaning appropriately...I tried to extrapolate the meaning from the word AraNan which means brahmA, aka vEdan etc. etc. etc...

kmrasika,
aNNal rAmachandranuDan AraNangu sItai is an Unjal song--a scene from sITA rAma kalyANam. tAlATTu comes later-with the arrival of lava kuSA :)

Do you know the starting words of the tAlATTu song?

kmrasika,
I'm sorry--I was only kidding! However, there is a beautiful tAlATTu song of hers in a rAgamAlikA. dEvaki tan kulakkozhundAi kuvalayattil avadarittAi. One of my favorite songs of hers. If Lakshman does not have it (!), I will post it (from memory).

Another song of her is Kolam kana vareeir-Natakurunji

Lyrics : Kolam kana. Raga: natakuranji. Adi tala. Composer: Ambujam Krishna.

P: kolam kana varir (tiruk) kosala balan karunalavalan malolan tiruk-
A: jnalam uyya bhanu kulattukkindu nila maghal karam konda raghuraman kalyanak-
C: tandai shol Etru kanakam Eghi dandaka munivarkkabhayam Indu
tanjamenra iruvarukku anjalenraruli daraniyor magizhvura dashamukhanai iruttu anujar muvar
pudai shuzha anjaneyan padam tanga janaka sutaiyudan kanaka simhasanattamar pattabhiraman tiruk-

Ranjini Gayathri have rendered this as a commercial album.

Here is a rendering by Madurai R Sundar-a close relative of Smt. Ambhujam Krishna.

VKailasam,
Madurai Sundar is vidUshi Ananthalakhmi Sadagopan's nephew and student. That's why he knows a lot of Ambujam Krishna songs.

Thank you for the correction as well as for the information.
I am happy another Smt Ambhujam krishna has arisen in the horizon and as in the case of the elder one, her compositions have also been tuned by Vidushi AS. ( Iread about your compositions in another thread a couple of days back )

Being an elderly man of 76 years my blessings and best wishes are with you.

Thank you, Venkata kailasam for your kind wishes. Another correction there. The songs were not tuned by AS. I am a vaggeyaAra in the sense I do not write the lyrics alone, but sing them too. As I am tAlam-impaired, she helped me with that aspect of it, my dear Mami.
Have you read the thread in General Discussions where modern composers are discussed ? ;) I do not know which class of composers I belong to now. What are my feelings about it? Anything which has merit is worth listening to. Just as a rAgam can be given new dimensions by able musicians (by which I mean not something of the artiste's own additions but of discoveries of what were already hidden there in the rAgam ). If it is new, so be it--but it's not something invented by the musician. If the music has merit, I'm all for it. This applies to lyrics too. Same old words, perhaps, but some different perspectives, and a few changes in vocabulary and expressions too, because several things change with time. Who said after kAlidAsA, no one should write a play, after kamban, not anything at all in tamizh? Every era has to have its own creators. The quality of what is created is what matters most. New compositions need not mean that they are going to replace the old gems.
You call yourself elderly. We are as young as we think. If we don't think that way, we elders will surely be oldies!

Smt. arasi


Can you clarify whether Smt. Anantha lakshmi Sadagopan and Anantha Lakshmi chella are same?

Is VV Sadagopan is relative of Ananthalakshmi sadagopan ?

These are long lingering doubts in my mind.

I do not know who Ananthalakshmi Chella is.
AS's husband Sadagopan and VVS were first cousins. Trivandrum Aiyya (who composed kannan varakkANenE peNNE and other songs), like VVS was a composer too, and was another cousin.
AS was a close friend of Ambujam Krishna. She has tuned some of her songs and would sing the songs which VVS tuned and also the songs tuned by Semmangudi and others. She taught them to Sundar , her grand daughters and others. Her daughter Sujatha Vijayaraghavan has put in a lot of effort in publishing AK's songs.

A super song with a fantastic mix by you!
gAna mazhai pozhiginRAn was tuned by V.V.Sadagopan and he sang it with such bhAvam.

Lakshman,
I'm hoping you may have the audio in your collection which is not from a concert but just of his singing of some of the songs from the first volume of Geethamala . He was the tune smith for all the songs in it.

Is there any book containing the lyrics of Smt. Ambujam Krishna's compositions? I can see only the list of compositions and not the lyrics.

arasi:
Sorry, I don't have the audio clips from volume 1.

semmu86:
Ambujam Krishna's songs have been published (5 volumes so far) under the title Geethamala. These should be available from The Karnatic Music Book Centre in Royapettah, Chennai.

priyaram78:
I don't thin there is a website for Ambujam Krishna's songs.
