'ஒளி படைத்த கண்ணினாய் வா வா'

A wide angle View of india has mentioned a tag regarding
'A song which inspires '
here (http://nitawriter.wordpress.com/2008/05/07/1659/)

I like the issue the writer discusses in her blog. I took the liberty of writing about a song that inspires me , and pat came 'ஒளி படைத்த கண்ணினாய் வா வா' from Bharathiyar songs.

The tune learnt in school is playing in the mind . This had inspired me on many occasions. Like when I am depressed while confronting problems in relationships, problems being a modern woman, problems when crossing hurdles.

It had never failed to instill the confidence to carry on.. and boost my moods and energy.

What is yours?

I would like some responses on this :-)

  1. ஒளி படைத்த கண்ணினாய் வா வா வா
    உறுதி கொண்ட நெஞ்சினாய் வா வா வா
    களி படைத்த மொழியினாய் வா வா வா
    கடுமை கொண்ட தோளினாய் வா வா வா
    தெளிவு பெற்ற மதியினாய் வா வா வா
    சிறுமை கண்டு பொங்குவாய் வா வா வா
    எளிமை கண்டு இரங்குவாய் வா வா வா
    ஏறு போல் நடையினாய் வா வா வா

    definitely it is an inspiring song...

    all bharathis song are inspiring in my views..

    some of them are soul binded as u said.

  2. There are many a song that come to my mind.

    'Pillai nila, irandum vellai nila...has been a personal favourite.

    'silar azhuvar & silar sirippar....
    Kaalam oru naal maarum,
    nam kavalaigal yaavum theerum...'

    ,unnai arindhaal...nee unnai arindhal..

    those are some thoughts...

  4. I used to sing this song in our school prayer every tuesday morning and everyone must repeat each stanza. During those days we rarely could get the golden words in the right meaning as it was merely done like a repetitive act in the prayer. When we really read back with the feel of whatever you have mentioned definitely it means a lot to us now...

    //This had inspired me on many occasions. Like when I am depressed while confronting problems in relationships, problems being a modern woman, problems when crossing hurdles.

    Hillary Clinton, going down fighting every moment during the last few months, said in her 'thank u' speech

    "When you stumble, keep faith. And, when you're knocked down, get right back up and never listen to anyone who says you can't or shouldn't go on."

    And remember, she is neither young or too old, a modern woman, in every sense and perception of that word. Also a big dreamer. A person who has faced ups and downs of domestic life with fortitude, courage and conviction, and finally decided to aspire for the top post in the World itself.

    I have not read any of your postings, but your introduction of yourself, propel me to quote what Hillary Clinton said.

    Whenever, one says something out of courage and conviction, one does not get angry at what's happening around, even as one learns to live with the existing circumstances.

    God Bless you.

  8. The inspiration one gets by reading Bharati's poems can only be compared with that of reading Vivekananda's speeches. We never find any trace of despondency. All positive thoughts despite his poverty. One example :
    சென்றது மீளாது என்ற கவிதையில்
    ........
    கொன்றழிக்கும் கவலையெனும் குழியில் வீழ்ந்து குமையாதீர்!
    சென்றதனை குறித்தல் வேண்டாம்.
    இன்று புதிதாய் பிறந்தோம் என்று நீவிர்
    எண்ணமதை திண்ணமுற இசைத்துக் கொண்டு
    தின்று விளையாடி இன்புற்றிருந்து வாழ்வீர்.
    தீமையல்லாம் அழிந்துபோம், திரும்பி வாரா.


    தொடர்ந்து எழுதுங்கள். வாழ்த்துகள்.

  11. Hi, Vetrimagal, thanks for visiting my blog, glad to discover yours. I cannot read Tamil but I guess you are referring to Oli padaittha kanninaaya ... That's the only song of Bharathi's I am familiar with, probably because it's the most famous.

  14. உங்கள் வருகைக்கும் கருத்துக்கும் மிக்க நன்றி வெற்றிமகள். நம்மை போன்று சிந்திக்கும் திறன் இருந்தும் சிந்திக்காமல் செயல்படாமல் இருப்பவர்களே அதிகம். அதற்கு முறையான சரியான இணைப்பு இல்லாததே காரணம். அறிவகம் இந்த குறையை நிறைவு செய்யும் ஒரு முயற்சி. முதலில் உலகளாவிய பிரட்சனைகளை ஆழமாக ஆய்ந்து., தெளிவான தீர்வுகளை அறிந்து கொள்வோம். பின்னர் அதை உலகில் எளிமையான முறையில் செயல்படுத்த முயற்சிப்போம். தொடர்ந்து அறிவகத்தில் உங்கள் கருத்துக்களையும் ஆலோசனைகளையம் தெரியப்படுத்துங்கள்.

    Welcome to my blog. I did not actually see these comments till date, thinking that not many would visit !.Thanks and Vankkam to Bharathiyar for pulling such good viewers to my blog.

    When I visited Sevalaya page from your blog, I felt I must live in tamizh nadu to serve people whose language is familiar to me. There is a language barrier for me when I visit poor schools. I am trying to overcome it. When things become difficult I dream of being somewhere in Chengulput and being of some help to those poor children.

    I have to go through your blogs and writings soon1. This response is only a sample.

    Thanks for your visit. God bless
