Stray songs of Kalagnana

Bharata Bhumini paripalanamu cheyu
Paradesa vasulu Vachchenima !
Uttara desamuna Vaisya Kulamunandu
Uttama Gandhokadu Puttenima’
Loka mantayunu Ekambuga chese
Eku pattedu vadu Vachchenima !

Oh ! listen to me ! my beloved people ! I will let you know of my predictions.)

“To rule over this land of Bharata,
Alas ! People from abroad, will arrive !
In the North, you will find
An excellent Vaisya-born Gandhi.
Holding a spindle in his hand,
He brings about unity in diversity of the mankind.

Sweta mukhulu dhuma sakatamulu Kalpinchi
Bhutalammuna inupa Kammulapai
Sutramerigina paschimottara disalandu
Atrammuga nadipincheruma !

White (faced) men invert vapour-driven vehicles
And hasten to run them on the rails
In the north west regions of the land
Where the mechanical device is well-known.

“Brahmalaku peetalu Malalaku manchalu
Mahilo Vese dinamu lochchenima”

The day will come when people said to be of the highest birth will be less honoured while those said to be of the lowest birth will be better honoured on earth.

“Mundamopulella muttaidu layyeni
Mundochche gati meeku telisenima”

All widowed-women get married and become housewives. You will come to know of the desiny.

“Madyapanamu chesi mahimeeda kondaru
Guddulataku tamu Vachchenima
Gadde suddulu cheppi kalamu gadiperu
Viddelatho Virra Veegenima”

Some people on earth, pounce upon, for first combat in a drunken state. Some while away the time idulging in absolute talk of the power politics; The conceited learned feel proud of their so-called erudition

“Tirupati Venkateswaru gudilo mlechulu
Adbhutambuga adipadenima;
Garuda dhwajam nana dikkulaku tanegi
Chodyammuga aduchundenima ! ”

In the Tirupati temple of Lord Venkateswara foreigners (strangers by nation or religion) will surprisingly sing and dance. The Garuda (Eagle) flag staff of Lord Vishnu will go abroad in various directions and keep marvelously fluttering.
