Kandu Kandann Irikkum Janannale : Poonthanam Namboodiry

Kandu Kandann Irikkum Janannale : Poonthanam Namboodiry

This is a beautiful song, sung and immortalised by MS Subbulakshmi. I fell in love with this song and started searching for the lyrics after I listened to this song. 

I found the lyricsand meaning in the site karnatic.com.

The song was written by Poonthanam Namboodiry. 

The raagas indicated herein are as sung by the great MS Subbulakshmi. 
The first stanza in Raagam : Bhageshrri

kaNDu kaNDaNN irikkuM janaNNaLe- kkaNDilennu varuttunnatuM bhavAn
raNDu nAlu dinaM koNDoruttane taNDiletti naTattunnatuM bhavAn
mALika mukaLERiya mannanTe tOLil mARAppaNNAkkunnatum bhavAN
kRSNa kRSNA mukundA janArdanA kRSNa govinda nArAyaNA harE

The second stanza in Raagam : Nadanamakriya

eNNiyeNNi kurayunnitAyussuM maNDi maNDi kkarErunnu mohavuM
ittamOrOnnu cinticcirikkavE cattu pokunnu pAvaM shiva shiva
kRSNa kRSNA mukundA janArdanA kRSNa govinda nArAyaNA harE

The third stanza in Raagam : Shubapantuvarali

kUTiyallA piRakkunna nerattuM kUTiyallA marikkunna nerattum
madhyEyiNNane kANunna nerattu matsarikkunnatendinu nAm vRthA
kRSNa kRSNA mukundA janArdanA kRSNa govinda nArAyaNA harE


Meaning:

People whom we see every day, God makes them disappear one day.

In two or four days, God changes the destiny of a man, and puts him from palace to prison.

A King who is rich and arrogant today, God makes him bear heavy burden the next day!

While you count, your life gets shorter and shorter in a fast pace and we die one day.

We were never together when we were born, and we will never be together when we die. Then why possess jealosy, enimity, etc and waste your life?
