BIRTHDAY TUNES - KAVIGNAR VAALI

It was tragic to note that a man of such talent and stature passed away last year! A great loss to the Tamil music industry but now it is time to immortalize the soul as it is his birthday today.As a matter of fact, the ‘Kavignar’ definitely remains immortal in all our hearts.

Listen to Vaali Songs on Raaga.com

Kavignar Vaali bagged the prestigious Padmashri in 2007.

Even in the recent era, we cannot think of a better writer who could pen beautiful lyrics like him. Many thanks to him for letting us realize the beauty of romance through words, which inturn let us experience what love is in action!

In the recent blockbuster, Superstar’s Kochadaiiyaan, everyone ofcourse loved the song ‘Medhuvaagathaan’. One line in particular from the song ‘Raana, ennai konjaraana, unnai minja aana’…was talked about so much. If one rereads the line, one may be able to understand the geniusness Valli was bestowed with , in terms of his wise placement and usage of words. His imagination of lyrics is laudable – “Singari sarakku nalla sarakku” is a classic example which appeals to the mass. His hits with music directors like A.R.Rahman include “Chikkupukku chikkupukku railay”, “Mukkala muqabla”, “Munbe Vaa” etc. 

No music lover who would not know “Ammavendrazhaikatha uyirillaye”, “Naanaga naan illai” and “Janani Janani”; a few mentions from his collection which inevitably transports every listener to a world of his own. The power of is imaginative words also lets listeners set sail in their ocean of imagination!

Undoubtedly, the lyricist who has won the Tamil Nadu State Film Awards for Best lyricist for over 5 years is him and ofcourse we all can agree how truly he deserves it! Birthday cheers from Raaga.com to his commendable lyricist for infact making us aware of so many wonderful words in the Tamil language.
