Place to go if you want to ask someone identify raga, tala, composer etc or ask for sāhitya (lyrics) or notations or translations.

Thandai Thai irundal song is sung in
Mukhari by t m krishna (rare tune)
Shanmukhapriya by Aruna Sairam (popular tune)
Why is this change in tune ..........???
Which ragam was its original tune ?
Karnatic website gives both the Raga names for it ?

The song was originally composed in mukhAri by Gopakrishna Bharati. N.C.Vasntakokilam popularized it in SaNmukhapriya rAgA.
To add to the confusion K Ponniah Pillai (the sangita kalanidhi) composed a song with the same starting words, also in mukhAri. You did not mention whose song was rendered by TMK. Many of the wordsin both songs are very similar.
