This beautiful Hindustani piece despicts the sweet flute recital of Lord Krishna, which is also the theme of another composition "Mohanamayi Thava". It was a favourite of Late Maharajapuram Santhanam, who was a Moahanam exponent through his famous renderings of 'Nannu palimpa' and 'Rama ninu'.

By playing flute melodiously, He attracts the mind.
By sweet word, He captivates everybody.
By singing and playing flute He makes GOPIKAs happy all the time-day & night.
Thinking about Him, of His cloud-like tan and handsome figure, GOPIKAs forget themselves.
They stand on the bank of river KALINDI, listening to the captivating music from the flute of KRISHNA.
Lord PADMANABHA is friend to weaker ones, protect all the people.

(Translation by Dr. T.K Govinda Rao)
