vk,though those who may only know Annamayya's bhakti songs and consider him a 'muRRum thuranda' ( who do you translate this to English? ) saint will come to know the Shringara rasa side of his repertoire and have to readjust their mental model.
I have already quoted one couplet of Tirukkural about how to evaluate a person. It is we who have to change our outlook towards SRngara Rasa. As Arasi once pointed out there is vast difference between 'notice' board and 'notice me' board.
In a parallel thread, there was a padam posted where it is mentioned as 'Elu Elu' - It is nothing but a plain invitation for sex. These padams come under the category of 'notice me'
I was recently watching the movie 'Krishna Bhakti' in Podigai channel. The final scene where the hero is about to be hanged, he delivers a long lecture confessing to what all he had done and what he deserves - this is the redeeming part of the story which wipes out the impression created earlier by his raping the unsuspecting Dasi.
These padams contain no such redeeming feature about them - they are plain sex. If CM musicians want to celebrate sex, let them do so by all means. But let them be bold to declare so and not be hypocrites.
Notwithstanding dramatisation of the kRti 'antaryAmi alasiti solasiti' in the picture Annamayya, the contents would go to prove what kind of a person Annamayya was. (I have recently posted the meaning of the Kriti in a parallel thread.)
Not the 'Dandapani - kOdandapani' variety
