#1 Composer of this kriti - Sri Meenakshi Thaaye (Bagesri)

Post by gajaa »

Dear Forumites,

Here is a Tamil composition set to Bagesri ragam that has almost become some sort of a family anthem for us over the past 20-30 years. We hail from Madurai and we have heard my paati sing this song & that's how we learnt it.

Has anyone listened to this song sung by any artiste? Any idea who the composer is? Given the Madurai link - I'm guessing it would be someone based out of the temple city or surrounding areas. Also, my aunt learnt from Sri. T.N. Seshagopalan Sir for a few years & she might have learnt it from him.

Ragam: Bagesri
Talam: Adi

Sri Meenakshi Thaaye Undhan
Thiruvadi malarin Darisanam tharuvaai

Arul mazhai pozhiyum amma neeye
Arul marai thamizh isai emakkarulvaaye

Amizhdhoorum thamizh paadi thudithiduvom
Engal anaivarkkum varam adai alithiduvaaye
Emadhu aaval niraiveral arul purivaaye
Edhenum thavarirundhaal poruttarulvaaye
