Hi friends,

Poornima and I are extremely happy to present this beautiful melody with this upload here. This is yet another mesmerizing melody given by the Maestro Ilaiyaraja during the early 80s. This awesome song is from the movie Aanandha Raagam so beautifully sung by K J Yesudas & S Janaki. This is a huge favorite of mine of IR-KJY-SJ combination.

Thanks Poornima for accepting to collaborate with me for this cover. You have sung this fabulously with your sweet voice!!! :) I liked everything about your rendition here and especially the high registers in the second stanza and the feel that you imparted in your rendition. I have done my portions to the best of my abilities.

I dedicate this cover to my brother Kumar Srinivasan who is an ardent fan of Ilaiyaraja and K J Yesudas and he wanted me to try this lovely song someday – that was an year back. Kumar – here it is for you! :)

It is a great song and an extremely difficult one to sing. We tried our best here. We had a fantastic karaoke track downloaded from www.iniyathamizhosai.com and thanks to them for that. Hope you all will enjoy this…. Kindly listen to this leisurely and your comments are welcome. :)

Original Lyrics & Rough Translation that I could write:
ஒரு ராகம் பாடலோடு காதில் கேட்டதோ
மனதோடு ஊஞ்சல் ஆடுதோ
தினம் உறங்காமல் வாடுதே
சுகம் உறவாடத் தேடுதே
ஓ நெஞ்சமே ஓராயிரம் சுகம் இது

ஒரு ராகம் …

Do you hear the beautiful raag with lyrics?
And does that swing merrily in my heart?
It pains me that I don’t get sleep
And I long for this happiness
And Oh! my Heart! it feels like a thousand pleasures together

மாலை நேரக் காற்றில் மகிழ்ந்தாடும் தென்னங்கீற்றே
மாலை சூடினாளும் என்னை ஆளும் தெய்வம் நீயே
காதல் தேவி எங்கே தேடும் நெஞ்சம் அங்கே
தேரில் போகும் தேவதை நேரில் வந்த நேரமே
என்னுள்ளம் இன்று வானில் போகுதே

The coconut tree’s leaves are merrily dancing with the evening breeze
You are the God for me who rules me everyday by giving me the garland
Where is the love angel? My soul is on a search….
This is the time when the angel in the chariot came in front of me
And it feels like I am flying_

ஒரு ராகம் ….

ஏதோ நூறு ஜென்மம் ஒன்று சேர்ந்து வந்த சொந்தம்
வாழும் காலம் யாவும் துணையாக வேண்டும் என்றும்
காதல் தந்த பந்தம் காதல் எனும் கீதம்
ஜீவனாதம் கேட்குதே சேர்ந்து இன்பம் கூட்டுதே
வராத காலம் வந்து சேர்ந்ததே

I somehow feel that you are the related to me in hundreds of our births
And I pray that you should be with me everyday till the end of my life
The bond that our love brought us; the beautiful tune the love gave us;
It is the music of my life that I hear now; and I feel ecstatic
The time I longed for life has come now

ஒரு ராகம் ….
