Saaramaina – Jaavali | Behag

A self interpretation of the Jaavali by Swati Tirunal which is very close to my heart.

Words are more than just plain text (Maatalu).. In the grander scheme of things, the intention behind the words manifests.

Saaramaina Maatalentho Chaalu Chaalu Ra..

What we really need to express is the true essence of our being, not the temporary coating outside of ourselves that seems permanent.

That, my friend is more than enough! (Chaalu ra).

That, is what brings true happiness (santoshamu).

Listen to your heart (manavi vinaraa).
