Happy Mother's day weekend to all of you. In celebration of motherhood, I'm presenting a nostalgic Ilayaraja tune from the late 80s, set for a situation in the Tamil movie "Thendral Sudum" and rendered by the great P.Susheelamma. After many years of disappearance, an estranged mom reaches the annual day function at her childrens' school to listen to them sing. In memory of their mom, they sing this song with a longing and yearning to meet her again(not knowing she's amidst the audience). A very poignant and soulful song with crescendo orchestration that highlights the feel and longing. Hope you all like this presentation.

Lyrics with rough translation

Dhoori Dhoori Dhummakka Dhoori (2) Ho...
Vaigai vaigai aatrangarayil thendral thendral oonjal katta
--the wind ties a swing along vaigai river's shore--
sandhana pookkal thandhanam paadudhamma Ho..
--and the flowers sing happily--

Amma sonnaaLa anbuvazhi paattaalae
--mom taught us affection through this song--
sollikkoduthavalae sollamale ponaalae
--having taught this, she left unnoticed--
yeppo varruvaaLo saamikkitta kaettaachu
--we have asked God when she would return--
kaNNeer kaDithangaL soppanathil pottAchu
--and sent him tear-filled letters in our dreams--
Amma uDanE nI varavENDum ingE
--mom, you need to come here immediately--
naangaL ilaippArum maDithaan virikka
--and take us in your lap--
engaL paattellAm ketkAdhO angae
--can't you hear our song?--
paaDum iLa nenjam thuDiyAi thuDikka
--as the singing heart suffers--
engE engE un mugam kAttu
--where are you..show us your face--
ingaE piLLai paaDudhu pAttu vA
--here, the child is singing your song...come..--
