Paal Kadalil-A Malayalam Krithi
Dr.V.R.Prabodha Chandran Nayar
(This Krithi is addressed to Lord Vishnu of Vaikunta)
Paal kadalil bhoomi-Lakshmimaar nin mrudu,
Kalkal sirassum thalodi vaazhvu.
In the ocean of milk , Goddess earth and Goddess Lakshmi live,
Fondling your soft feet and head .
Palkarikal ninne Kayambu varnanaayi,
Pai kidangalkku oppam kathu nilpu.
The gopis are waiting for you as one ,
With the colour of Kayambu (Blue flower of iron wood tree) along with their calves.
Kathu kathen kankal yethra kazhakkunnu,
Orthu kanna , ninne jnan iripoo,
Perthum nin snigdha subodhasda susmeram,
Parthu jnan ul kannal ingiripoo.
Waiting and waiting , how my eyes are paining,
Thinking about you darling Krshina , I am waiting,
Repeately waiting with joy for your friendly smile giving wisdom,
I would be sitting here waiting for you.
