I am also looking for the meaning of Ela varna by Sri Ramaswami Deshitar. I tried searching under Dikshitar kritis, but did not have any luck. I would also like someone to please let me know if this is something different than the spoken telugu. Thank you.

At the cost of sounding terribly mercenary, i am willing to try a translation, (using my trusty dictionary of course) in exchange for an audio of the varNaM..

Respected Lakshman Sir,

thank you for the third caranam.

I could make out the words::

*mAnaka nE dUra yide madi aLigamulu adari*

Regards.

Why are you making me get heated up{in frustration} What is this,I say,
My salutations {to you} {p}
Why are you playing tricks with me,The saint SrI tyAgEsha {ap ]

Listening to the insinuations of maidens,with lotus like faces,
You have made up your mind, not considering the familiarity between
us, that we are far apart,,what is this My Lord? {ciTTe swara}
unable to withstand the onslaught of cupid.{c}
Day and night,while I am perplexed in great annoyance{1}
The parrots have turned enemies,they are always speaking horribly{2}
Without desisting,when I complained,my forehead {eyebrows}shivered,
Again and again the koel sounded tremulously{3}
The moon, the sinner son of the milky way,has been spreading his rays,
Which are the children of his warmth, while I melt slothfully in the pain of separation,again
and again{4}
