This is my 50th upload here at Yourlisten and I’m very much happy that it is a tribute to the nation on this special occasion, August 15th, Independence Day. To make it even more special, Shivani Zenith Sis has created magic with her wonderful video edits for this cover with some real nationalistic sentiments. I’ve sung and done the audio mix.

Thanks to the translation that I found on a website:

The British have left our shores, My dear
Midnight is here, the seeds we sowed have turned into flowers
We fought until dawn, we shed rivers of blood
Oh dear, even grasses were turned into swords, (now) all our sadness have been eliminated

The gentle drizzles will reach our doorsteps
The drizzles from the skies will reach us
Now, all the sadness that enveloped us have
[left our shores (on a ship)]

Oh like a deer, you drew with tears on your cheeks
Why are you adorning the war dress; (in spirit) you struggle here and I struggle there
Oh dear, did I ask your permission before giving you my heart?
Oh dear, everyday I slept on a bed of thorns
I have become a island.. come soon
Oh dear, I drank everyday from the mirage waters.. and now
[(the British) left our shores (on a ship)]

Oh swan like, did the breeze that I sent reach you yesterday
Did the breeze tell you how I burnt inside missing you
Like your anklet, I will always walk with you
I shall be the tears that protect your eyes
I shall wed you and dance in your shoulders
I will hold your hand, embrace you and dissolve myself in you

(Kappaleri Poyachu) [(the British) left our shores (on a ship)]
