THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Veteran singer K J Yesudas has said that there is no need for any correction in the ever-popular lullaby Harivarasanam, recorded long before under the music direction of Devarajan Master. He said this towards the end of the musical offering at Kollur Mookambika temple on his birthday on January 10.

“This is my personal opinion. In the song, ‘Ari Vimardhanam’ is sung as a single word. Five years ago, the head priest of Annanagar Ayyappankovil in Chennai had requested me to split the word and sing (Ari+Vimardhanam). But, recently another pundit sent me a wad of documents to prove that singing it as a single word is grammatically correct. From this, I came to the conclusion that when we do a thing many opinions will come; humans are likely to commit errors; the all-knowing Almighty will forgive mistakes we make unknowingly. So, if we sing Harivarasanam with bhakthi and purity of body and mind, no harm befall us,” he said.

Yesudas had earlier said that he would re-record the song, if given a chance. Sabarimala priests and singer Jayan had suggested that the corrected song could be recorded again, if Yesduas was ready for it. Devaswom board also was planning to discuss the matter with the singer.

The soothing song in Madhyamavathi raga, sung in deep devotion and meditative mood, is played in the night every day at Sabarinala Sannidhanam after Athazha pooja. Some of the devotees also sing along with it. It is believed that Swami Ayyappan, the temple deity, will go to sleep hearing this cradlesong.
