Sl. No. 100; Ipparitaapam; Saurashtram; Chaapu; Padam;
How do I bare this intense agony? When will you show
your compassion? Among the doe-eyed maidens of this world, probably,
I am the only one affected by the five arrows of Cupid!
When I close both my eyes and think of You, your image clearly comes
in my mind. Oh the one equal to Cupid! When I open my eyes again, alas!
I can't express the magnitude of my desire that overflows.
Just as the CATAKA bird cries for water to quench its thirst, I too
cry aloud to you to satisfy my desire. Is it not so, oh Lord with moon-like
Oh the immaculate Lord! Please protect me from becoming the laughing stock
of women folk, oh my beloved! Oh the lord having cloud-like form!
Oh the immaculate Lord! Please protect me from becoming the laughing
stock of the women folk, oh my beloved! Oh the lord having cloud-like
form! Come immediately and indulge in amorous sports with me. Oh VANAJANABHA!
(Translation by Dr. T.K Govinda Rao)
