Happy thiru onam to all of you

Happy Thiruonam  to  all   of you.
            P.R.Ramachander
  
        The people   of Kerala believe   that   they were   once ruled by Mahabali    in the perfect manner and 
due to his fight with  devas , in spite  of his being    a great devotee , Lord Vishnu    sent him to Patala . Mahabali asked a boon   that   he would like to visit his subjects   whom he loved   once in a year . He is believed   to come on  Thiruonam day  to Kerala. His subjects    do not   want to disappoint   their great king . So  the entire Kerala   plays a   game , so that   their king  sees them happy . Here   is a famous song   which  recollects   the rule  of Mahabali.  .Happy Onam to you all.




Maveli Naadu vaanidum kaalam
(When  the Great  Mahabali    was ruling  our country)

Transiteration of lyrics

Translation   by
P.R.Ramachander
1.Maveli Naadu vaanidum kaalam
Manushyarellarum onnu pole
Aamodathode vasikkum kaalam
Aapathangarku-mottilla thaanum

When  the great Mahabali was   ruling our country,
All the men     were    uniformly   alike  ,
It was   a time when they all lived   with joy,
And there was not even a little danger   to any one.

2.Maveli Naadu vaanidum kaalam
Manushyarellarum onnu pole
Aamodathode vasikkum kaalam
Aapathangarku-mottilla thaanum

When the great Mahabali was ruling our country  ,
All the men were   uniformly   alike 
 It was   a time when they all lived   with joy,
And there was not even a little danger   to any one.

3.Aadhikal vyaadhikal onnumilla
Baalamaranangal kelkkanilla
Dushtare kankondu kaanmanilla
Nallavarallathe illa paaril… illa paaril

There were neither  sufferings    nor diseases,
No one had heard   of infant    deaths  ,
None could say   they had seen a   a bad human being ,
Only good people   were  there  in this world… in this world

4.Maveli Naadu vaanidum kaalam
Manushyarellarum onnu pole
Aamodathode vasikkum kaalam
Aapathangarku-mottilla thaanum

When the great Mahabali was ruling our country  ,
All the men were   uniformly   alike 
 It was   a time when they all lived   with joy,
And there was not even a little danger   to any one.

5.Kallavumilla chathiyumilla
Ellolamilla polivachanam… polivachanam
Vellikolaadikal naazhikalum
Ellam kanakkinu thulyamaayi… thulyamaayi

There is no theft    nor was there cheating  ,
Even  to a weight of  a single gingelly  , there were no lies , there were no lies,
All  types   of silver balances    and   of different type of measures
 Weighed/measured  accurately  …accurately

4.Maveli Naadu vaanidum kaalam

All the men were   uniformly   alike 
 It was   a time when they all lived   with joy,
And there was not even a little danger   to any one.


5.Kallapparayum cherunazhiyum
Kallatharangal mattonnumilla
Kallavumilla chathiyumilla
Ellolamilla polivachanam… polivachanam

Lying big measure   and  inaccurate   small measures ,
And    the   cheating  activities   were  not there at all,
There  is no lying acts  , nor cheating.
 Even  to a weight of til , there were no lies , there were no llies

6.Maveli Naadu vaanidum kaalam
Manushyarellarum onnu pole
Aamodathode vasikkum kaalam
Aapathangarku-mottilla thaanum

When the great Mahabali was ruling our country  ,
All the men were   uniformly   alike 
 It was   a time when they all lived   with joy,
And there was not even a little danger   to any one.
