inkevarunnAru has been noted as Annasami Sastri's composition in the books. But the Dhanammal family always maintained that it was a composition of Subbaraya Sastri himself. The latter's mudra 'kumAra' occurs in the charanam. Annasami Sastri had no mudra.

Veena Dhanammal's grandmother Kamakshi was Subbaraya Sastri's disciple and Dhanammal's mother Sundara was Annasami Sastri's disciple.

When Sundara sang 'nannu brOchuTaku', Annasami Sastri would exclaim, 'Yes, yes, your mother is that Kamakshamma'.meaning both Sundara's mother ass well ass the Goddess The words 'mAyamma kAmakShammA' occurs in the pallavi of that song. That was how sublimely Sundara would sing it seems.

Here are the lyrics of inkevarunnAru. There is no kumAra in the caraNa sAhitya unless I am missing a second caraNa.

Yes, there are two more charanams. I have learnt the 3rd one which has the kumAra mudra:

sachidAnanda ganuDaivalE nA srI
sAmbashivunikki kAmavihAriNi
kachikalyANaranga swAmini brOchE
karuNanidhini mahinE vini vachina vADu nItu kumAruDanammA
