This song was popularized by Maharajapuram Sri. Santhanam. But the composer for this song is Smt. Kamakshi Ayyar. Smt Kamakshi Ayyar who passed away recently in Bangalore was a family friend of the Sri Santhanam.
Here is a video link by Smt Kamakshi Ayyar explaining how and when she wrote the song.

Thank you for your above post . Never knew this composer . For many years no one knew that Bho sambho popularized by santhanam the tune smith was L krishnan (Arun krishnan's dad). This extraordinary master piece of karunai pozhiyum kangal is by Kamakshi ayyar, such a lovely composition extreme emote and words intersect.IIRC santhanam sir has sung this in a live concert this song which i attended, it was a rage that too mahaswami was also highly revered.

Kamakshi ayyar mentions that she has composed other songs by any chance do you know them. I am a making an assumption that you may be related to Kamakshi ayyar , you can write few more musical anecdotes about kamakshi mAmi.
