Ennama Thozhi!

Reactions: 
This is a song I came across in my recent travails over the net. It was so good that I kept on singing this song for about two days and drove everyone mad. Some of my friends even learnt the song(courtesy, my constant singing!).

This is a folk song by Vedanth. Though I don't know anything else about the song or the artist, I can easily say that this is a really good one. The lyrics are simple without being simplistic and that's rare in the present world. They capture the innocence of bygone times and I only wish that the song was longer and didn't finish so abruptly. Here are the lyrics:

Ennama Thozhi, Bommaiya Kaanom!
Naan enna seiyya poren?

Ennama Thozhi, Bommaiya Kaanom!
Naan enna seiyya poren?

Thala vaari pinni Pookal vaithu
Pudu chattai potu vitten

Ippasi maasam Kaaveri snaanam
Bommaiya vaangi vandhen

Ennama Thozhi, Bommaiya Kaanom!
Naan enna seiyya poren?

{english translation:
My dear friend, I can't find my doll!
What am I going to do?

My dear friend, I can't find my doll!
What am I going to do?

I tied its hair, decked it with flowers,
And gave it new clothes.

In the month of Ippasi(a tamil month), a bath in Cauvery(a well known river),
I got the doll!

My dear friend, I can't find my doll!
What am I going to do?)

Yennamma thozhi.. un blog la update-a kaanom? :P

alpine path said...

arun, I thought so too. But Vedanth assured that it was the whole song. I was so eager to get the entire song and was disappointed with the abrupt ending.

the black king, I have the mp3 file with me. Mail me at myalpinepath at gmail dot com and I'll send you a copy. Btw, dolls at any age is allowed. Caters to the kid in each of us. :)

vishnupriya janardhanan, cool :) You've heard it too? I just couldn't take my mind off that.

king vishy, thozha! Blog update done :)

parody said...

I love that song too and came looking for it and landed at ur Blog .... there was this movie called Kaalai Pani which has this song and its a longer version. Do check it out.

alpine path said...

parody, thanks a lot! The longer version is good too. But it simply does not seem to have the swaying power of the shorter one. I guess its because of the addition of music and other stuff. And welcome aboard!

vanitha said...

alpine path said...

Vidhya, I've sent it to your mail id. Welcome and have fun!

Karthic, thanks for the updates but the song that I'm talking of is the original version, not the one that came in the movie. The movie one is more cinematised while this one is more original and lovelier to listen to.

Vijayakumar, Ganesh, harsid21, P and preethi, I've sent the song to you. Welcome aboard and have fun!

@All, this is a lovely song and kudos goes to the original author and composer. If you hear the original song, you'll fall in love with it again and prefer it over the film version of it.

This is Ashwin & Shreyas from Bahrain. We all listened to the song. Excellent . Sure this is going to be a great hit.
We are trying to download the song. Give us the link

alpine path said...

Archna/sulabha, your voice in the movie version was good. I've sent you the version I have and I got it through a friend of mine even before the audio of Kaalapani came out. I instantly loved it and even sing it whenever I feel the need to just break free. I didn't know that it was going to be part of a movie. For all I know, the version I have might even be a trial version of the song that you sung because it had only the first verse. Do listen to it and let me know if you sung that one as well for I have no clue of the singer yet. Thanks for stopping by my blog and welcome aboard!

Ashwin &Shreyas, welcome! Great to know that you loved the song too! Do send me your mail id and I'll send it to you.

Ananth said...
