I always thought that the above song is from: gul-E-bakaavaLi katha.
Could someone please confirm/deny!

That is correct! Its her debut song (1950) in Tamil which was a mega-hit.
The male singer was some Govindarajan (not Sirgazhai!). I should know his
name! Will provide details later....

btw, was it a typo or the title was mentioned as "vaarakanakaNam" and not as
"veera...." (1957).
