05. Ee Bhoomi
An ode for an earth can be paradise, awash in green. A celebration of life!
ee bhoomi swarga aagutide nade
nee sneha preeti haaraisuvante haadu
hakkaiyante neenu haari
haguvaagali ninna daari
chitte banna ee mugihu
shrutiyaagali raatri haga lu
naaleya chinte illa
indiruva ruchiye bella
maatagali ondu kavana
prati usiru punaha janana
manaviralu endoo nirbhaya
teredirali ella hrudaya
Watch the earth turn into paradise
As you sing to the glory of love and friendship
Soar into the sky as a bird flies
Pave the way with your smiles
See the sky burst into myriad butterflies
Night and day, in tune.
Forget the day that is to be
Revel in the sweetness of today
May each word you say be poetry,
Every breath you take, a new life,
May your mind wander without fear,
In lands and hearts, far and wide.
No envy, no jealousy, not now, not ever
No hatred in this world, love forever.
Swarathma: Album & Song Art-Work
Swarathma album and song art-work was created from photographs of graffiti that told stories from everyday life. In a longish blog, we tell the tales behind each.
