Bantureethi Kolu

3:20 PM Posted by Vijayasri


Bantureethi kolu is a very nice Telugu song composed by Thyagaraja and is set in Hamsanaadam raaga. The tempo and the pitch of the song are very catchy.

Ragam: HamsaNadam (This is a janya of Raagam Neetimati)
Thalam: Aadi
Composer: Tyagaraja
Language: Telugu
Diety : Lord Rama
Aro : S R2 M2 P N3 S
Avaro : | S N3 P M2 R2 S

Pallavi

banTu reeti kOlu viyavaiyya raama (banTu)

anupallavi
tuNTa viNTi vaani modalaina madaa-
dula goTTi nela goola jEyu nija
(banTu)

CharaNam
rOmaanja mAne ghana kanchukamu
raama bhaktuDanu mudra biLLayu
raama naama mAne vara khaDga mivi
raajillu naiyya thyaagaraajunikE
(bunTu)

Meaning:
In this song Sri Thyagaraja pleads with Rama to give him the post of a guard for Raama; symbolically meaning that he always wants to be in Sri rama's sannidhi. He says in the anupallavi, the guard's post should be such that he is empowered to destroy all the demons which are arishadvargas (kama-love, krodha, lobha, moha, mada, matsarya) and since the guard is empowered to do so, he needs such a guard's post. In the charanam, he says he should be blessed with the emblem of Ramabhakti, given a sword called Raama Naama (the name of Raama) to perform his guard's job.
