For Amma.....

Amma Ninna Yede AaLadalli (Please click on the link to listen to the song)

Here is my first post on my blog, this first post is dedicated to my mother who has been my inspiration for life. Finally, after a long wait, also after pep talk from close friends, I am scribbling something over here. Also, please excuse my voice. Thanks to my husband who made me drink cold lassi before I started singing. He was so sweet, I just could not refuse, as a result - my voice conked and I had to record this song for Mother's Day.

This rendition is a kannada song, written by B.R. Lakshman Rao. It is about a child who pleads his mother to relieve him from her guardianship. The child wants to get out of its mother's clutches to explore life. The child says, no matter what, it will come back to her lap, back to the eternal love.

ಅಮ್ಮ ನಿನ್ನ ಎದೆ ಆಳದಲ್ಲಿ ಗಾಳಕ್ಕೆ ಸಿಕ್ಕ ಮೀನು... ಮಿಡುಕಾಡುತಿರುವೆ ನಾನು
ಕಡಿಯಲೊಲ್ಲೆ ನೀ ಕರುಳ ಬಳ್ಳಿ ಒಲವೂಡುತಿರುವ ತಾಯೇ.... ಬಿಡದ ಭುವಿಯ ಮಾಯೆ 

ನಿನ್ನ ರಕ್ಷೆಗೂಡಲ್ಲಿ ಬೆಚ್ಚಗೆ ಅಡಗಲಿ ಎಷ್ಟು ದಿನ.... ದೂಡು ಹೊರಗೆ ನನ್ನ 
ಓಟ ಕಲಿವೆ, ಒಳನೋಟ ಕಲಿವೆ, ನಾ ಕಲಿವೆ ಊರ್ಧ್ವ ಗಮನ.... ಓ ಆಘಾದ ಗಗನ 

ಮೇಲೆ ಹಾರಿ ನಿನ್ನ ಸೆಳೆತ ಮೀರಿ, ನಿರ್ಭಾರ ಸ್ತಿತಿಗೆ ತಲುಪಿ, ಬ್ರಹ್ಮಾಂಡವನ್ನೇ ಬೆದಕಿ 
ಇಂಧನ ತೀರಲು ಬಂದೇ ಬರುವೆನು, ಮತ್ತೆ ನಿನ್ನ ತೊಡೆಗೆ.. ಮೂರ್ತ ಪ್ರೇಮದೆಡೆಗೆ

Isn't it true that we are all still kids? A part of us still wants to get back to mom - talk to her, fight with her and laugh with her?
