With more and more youngsters of India adapting to English for their routine activities, many lyrical gems of Indian poets of yester-years in vernacular languages have become obscure or even lost to the new generations. The present book fills in this gap. It presents English version of some of the most popular songs of Sant Purandara Dasa, originally composed in Kannada. Besides explaining devotional and philosophical aspects of these songs, it also analyzes the views of Sant Purandara Dasa on societal mores and his criticism of the social evils of the 15th century India.My mother used to sing many of these songs in a casual way, not as classical Carnatic music, but as devotional songs for household prayer. ... lyrics have been composed such as Telugu, Malayalam, Sanskrit, Hindi dialects and, of course, my mother tongue Kannada and school language Tamil. From the year 2000, I started posting essays on the internet on different subjects including music and lyrics.
