Aluva puzhayude theerathu – On the shores of Aluva rivulet


A catchy number, though the visualisation had elements of stalking in it. I personally do not endorse it though.



Aluva puzhayude theerathu
Aarorumillaa nerathu
Thannanam thennithenni
Thedivannoru maargazhikaattu
Poomarakompin chaarathu
Poomanam veeshum nerathu
Thannanam thennithenni
Thedivannoru paingilikaattu

On the shores of Aluva rivulet
The instant when i saw you all alone
Me slipping smoothly
You came along like the late winter breeze
Being by the sides of a blooming tree
When the fragrance of the flower wafted through
Me slipping smoothly
You came along like an adolescent breeze

Parayaathe palliyilvachen
Karalil keri olichavale
Pathivaai pala pala vattam
Manassil choolamadichavale

You went unnoticed in Chapel
But still managed to slip into my heart
Quite often could hear your sweet murmurs
Echoing from the chambers of my deep within

Parayaathe palliyilvachen
Karalil keri olichavale
Pathivaai pala pala vattam
Manassil choolamadichavale

You went unnoticed in Chapel
But still managed to  slip into my heart
Quite often could hear your sweet murmurs
Echoing from the chambers of my deep within

Aadyamaai ullinnullil
Pootha poovalle…
Sammatham thannaal ninne
Thaaliketti kondupoville

You are the first damsel
To blossom from the depths of my heart
Will tie thaali and take you home
If you consent

Aluva puzhayude theerathu
Aarorumillaa nerathu
Thannanam thennithenni
Thedivannoru maargazhikaattu
Poomarakompin chaarathu
Poomanam veeshum nerathu
Thannanam thennithenni
Thedivannoru paingilikaattu

On the shores of Aluva rivulet
The instant when i saw you all alone
Me slipping smoothly
You came along like the late winter breeze
Being by the sides of a blooming tree
When the fragrance of the flower wafted through
Me slipping smoothly
You came along like an adolescent breeze

Parayaathe palliyilvachen
Karalil keri olichavale
Pathivaai pala pala vattam
Manassil choolamadichavale
You went unnoticed in Chapel
But still managed t0 enter my heart
Quite often could hear your sweet murmurs
From the chambers of my deep within
Parayaathe palliyilvachen
Karalil keri olichavale
Pathivaai pala pala vattam
Manassil choolamadichavale

You went unnoticed in Chapel
But still managed to  slip into my heart
Quite often could hear your sweet murmurs

Aadyamaai ullinnullil
Pootha poovalle…
Sammatham thannaal ninne
Thaaliketti kondupoville

You are the first damsel
To blossom from the depths of my heart
Will tie thaali and take you home
If you consent to my initiation

Aluva puzhayude theerathu
Aarorumillaa nerathu
Thannanam thennithenni
Thedivannoru maargazhikaattu

On the shores of Aluva rivulet
The instant when i saw you all alone
Me slipping smoothly
You came along like the late winter breeze

  1. I came here from the post with your translation of Malare. (A bug seems to be keeping me from commenting there.) What a heartwarming song! I do not speak Malayalam but I can figure out yours is a fine translation. Thank you for this one too.
