Need for sahityam

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

#1 Need for sahityam

Post by Rishabh V. »

Can someone please help me out with the lyrics of the song Meenakshi Kalyanam in raagamalika khanda chapu talam (sometimes rendered in adi talam as well)...
The starting of the song is something like this:
Poomanakkum paamanakkum pugazhmanakkum madhuraile then manakkum thirumanata konam kondal meenakshi devi vandal...

I gave a try to transcribe by listening to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lmzlbDGboNM.

@Pratyaksham Bala or @rshankar , could you correct? @rshankar : Could you give the meaning? This seems a particular form of poetry-the first stanza seems to be about smells, second fame, third colours, etc.

pūmaṇakkum pāmaṇakkum pugaḻmaṇakkum maduraiyilē
tēnmaṇakkum tirumaṇattil
kōlam koṇḍāḷ mīnākṣi tēril vandāḷ

caṅgam vaitta pāṇḍiyargaḷ
tamiḻ vaḷartta madurayilē
tenṟal acaintu varuvatuppōl
vandu cenṟāḷ mīnākṣi-pandal vandāḷ-
maṇappandal vandāḷ

paccai vaṇṇa mēniyilē pavaḻa vaṇṇa paṭṭututti
cekka civanda cōkkaraiyē tēril vandāḷ mīnākṣi tērilvandāḷ

kālil kaṇtai kalakalakka kaivalaigaḷ caracarakka
pālum paḻamum parugiḍavē pakkam vandāḷ

tōlil paiṅgiḷi tūkkivara

mēḍai cuṟṟi valam varavē
mella ciṟittāl mīnakṣi-muttu teṟittāl

makimai colli pāḍiḍuvōm-mīnakṣi
