Palavattam Pookkalam song from Manichitrathaazhu – Lyrics in English with Translation

Palavattam pookkalam

Vazhithetti poyittangorunaalum pookkaamankombil

Priyamulloralaro varuvanundennu

Poonkuyilonnu padipparanju

Poonkuyilonnu Padipparanju

Many times, spring lost its path

And reaches the branch of mango tree –

Which never blossoms…

In that tree branch,

Sitting one cuckoo, singing & saying,

Someone dear is to come


Ninayathanerathen padivathilil

Oru padavinyasam kettapole

Varavayalorunalum piriyatha madhumasam

Oru mathra konduvannallo

Oru mathra Konduvannallo

At an unexpected moment,

I felt like,

Someone’s footsteps at my door step

Is it that *Madhu month,

That a single moment brought in,

Which never goes if in case comes in?

Today, did that single moment bring the *Madhu month??


Kothiyode odippoy padivathilil chennen

Mizhirandum neettunna neram

Niraye thalirkkunnu pookkunnu kaaykkunnu

Kanavinte thenmavin komb

Ente karalile thenmavin komb

The moments when I run with desire,

Reach the front door

And extend both my eyes,

Is fully sprouting, blossoming & bearing fruits,

The mango tree branch of dreams

The branch of mango tree in my heart


*Madhu month – March-April when mango tree blossoms
