Azhagae sugama from Paarthale Paravasam : Nostalgia Triggering Song

I came across this Song called “Azhagae sugama”  from the tamil movie “Paarthale Paravasam” directed by Shri Balachander and music composed by Shri A.R.Rahaman . Lyrics are awesome and so touching. Sung by Mrs.Sadhana Sargam, Shri Srinivas. The mind state of two separated people is beautifully depicted. This is a nostalgia triggering song for such people and others like us can feel that 😉

I googled for the translation of this song and finally got in a site called and hope that author would not mind in me copying those lyrics as they are and posting them here 🙂 . So here are the lyrics with translation

azhagae sugama?
Oh beautiful one, how are u doing?

un kobangal sugama?
Is your anger doing fine?

anbae sugama?
My love, how are u doing?

un thaabangal sugama?
Are your cravings doing fine?

thalaivaa sugama sugama?
My man, how are you doing?

un thanimai sugama sugama?
How is your solitude doing?

veedu vaasal sugama?
How is your home doing?

un veettu thottam sugama?
How is the garden in your home doing?

pookal ellam sugama?
Are all the flowers there doing fine?

un poigai ellam sugama?
Is your pond doing fine?

azhagae unai pirindhaen,
Oh beautiful one, I separated from you

en arugil unnai izhandhaen
I lost you from beside me

veliye azhudhaal vetkam endru
vilakkai anaiththu azhudhaen
Since its a shame to cry in the open, I wept in darkness

anbae unnai veruththen
en arivai naane eriththen
My love, I hated you and in the process burnt my intelligence

uravin perumai pirivil kandu
uyiril paadhi puraindhen(?)

I realized the importance of relationships and understood one halfof my life(??)

pazhaiya maalaiyil pudhiya pookkal dhaan seraadhaa?
Won’t new flowers blend in an old garland?

pazhaiya thaaliyil pudhiya mudichchugal podaadhaa?
Won’t new knots form in an old mangalsutra?

Vaazhkkai Or vattam pol
mudindha idaththil thodangaadha?

Wish life began at the point where it ended, just like a circle.

Hope you people enjoyed hearing this song 🙂
