Greetings!

paalana gaari on-going series on _telugu dESabhakti gEyaalu_ is making me 
to listen more often to my collection of Tanguturi Surya Kumari's songs, 
for she recorded many of the songs listed by him on 78rpm disks.

On the other side Veluri gaaru brought back 'those' (nostalgic) school days
memories by mentioning Jaruk Sastry's name, when we used to try imitating him.

So, yesterday while listening to this beautifully rendered piece by TSK
(lyrics: SreeSree), came up with the following parody (?). Bear it!

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Edi guruvO! Edi laghuvO!
Edi Ekam? Edi dwitwam?
Edi rEpha? Edi rEpham?
Edi onTari? Edi janTari?

Edi sahajam? Edasahajam?
Edi prEmayo? Edi dwEshamo?
Edi puliyO? Edi Enugo?
Edi sunnaa? Edarasunna?

Edi kala_ika? Edi nijam_ika?
Edi vRttaM? Edi vyaaghraM?
Edi krooram? Edi kRUram?
Enu kRshNuDa! neevu krishNuDa!

echaTa chaapanu? echaTa noodanu?
asalu acchaa! lEka hallaa!
............

with due apologies to SreeSree and TSK.

Regards,
Sreenivas

PS. Tell me 'exactly' how many times did the word(s) _sahajamagu prEma_
     occur during the entire thread? And win a prize. 
     "pesarapappu paayasam" ... does it ring a bell to any?
