#1 which is the authentic version of Thaye Yashodha - todi

Post by ajaysimha »

Hi Rasikas,

I have heard thaye yashodha
http://www.venkatakavi.org/ovk/compositions.html?id=439
but found they are variations in choosing charanams from artist to artist

I have heard thaye yashodha from majority artists where they sing

P tāyē yashōdē undan āyar kulattuditta māyan ...
AP taiyalē lēḷaḍi undan paiyanai pōlavē inda ...
C1 kālinil shilambu konja kaivaḷai kulunga muttu ...
C7 mundā nāl andi nērattil sondamuḍan kiṭṭē vandu ...

also
i have heard a few bharathanatyam singers singing the other charanams like

P tāyē yashōdē undan āyar kulattuditta māyan ...
AP taiyalē lēḷaḍi undan paiyanai pōlavē inda ...
C1 kālinil shilambu konja kaivaḷai kulunga muttu ...
C3 engaḷ manai vāzha vanda nangaiyait-tannam ...

<or>

P tāyē yashōdē undan āyar kulattuditta māyan ...
AP taiyalē lēḷaḍi undan paiyanai pōlavē inda ...
C5 shuṭri shuṭri ennai vandu attai viṭṭu ...
C6 veṇṇai vēṇṇai tārumenrān veṇṇai tandāl tinru viṭṭu ...

Can anybody locate me for the same song where all the charanams are sung?

Thanks and Regards
Ajay Simha

Here's the full version : https://karnatik.com/c1446.shtml

They performed this in full for my school annual day way back (must be 2005), along with illai illai ammA ( https://karnatik.com/c2431.shtml) and pEshAdE pongaLaDi (https://karnatik.com/c2432.shtml), but I have no recording.

They form a set.

The verses for tAye yaSOda in that link repeats 2 caraNams. I also think that there are some missing caraNams from tAyE yaSOdA as well, since illai illai ammA is supposed to be a point-for-point defense in response to the complaints in tAyE yaSOdA. Currently, the lyrics for the two compositions are not concordant. For example, I think there is a caraNam in tAyE yaSOdA that outlines a gOpi's complaint that kRshNa took her daughter to an unknown location under the guise of taking her to the river bank (kRshNa's defense is in caraNam 3 of illai illai ammA). pEsAdE pOngaLaDi is a more general tIrppu.

Hello rasikas,

I found a Sangeetha upanyasam by Needamangalam krishnamoorthi bhagavathar where he sings thaye yashodha and illa illai amma (the sequence of the charanam are not jumbled and both the song's question and answer match very aptly)
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1KOovpM ... p=drivesdk

But the recording stops abruptly at the 4th charanam.

If anyone had the other half , kindly share it.
