What a an Alapana followed by the Krithi ! Chakkani raaja raagam: 22 kharaharapriya mela Adi talam Thyagarajar Krithi
In this Keertana Tyagaraja expresses that the path of devotion to Rama is the best path to attain supreme bliss. He asks, "why should anyone choose bylanes when there is an excellent high way?" SrI tyAgarAja, exhorts his mind to follow the royal path of devotion and not to go for any short cuts.
O mind! When the spacious royal path to salvation is available, why should you take to by-lanes? When nutritious creamy milk is available, will anyone think of detestable toddy Ð Gangasagaram? When you can feast your eyes on the ravishingly beautiful form of SRI RAMA, when LORD SHIVA is eternally chanting the name of SRI RAMA, who has condescended to grace the abode of Tyagaraja, why should you resort to devious and labyrinthine paths instead of the royal path to salvation?
Pallavi:
Chakkani Raaja Maargamulundaga
Sandula Dooraneelee Oo Manasaa!
When there is an excellent king's way, why do you go on bylanes? Oh my heart.

Anupallavi:
Chikkani Paalu Meegada yundaga
Cheeyanu Gangaasaagara Mele
When there is pure milk and cream, why do you go for the most abhorred liquor?

Charanam:
Kantiki Sundara Taramagu Roopame,
Mukkanti Nota Chelage Naamame
Tyagaraajintane Nelakonnaadi Deivamee
Yituvanti Sri Saketa Ramuni Bhaktiyane
He has the most beautiful appearence.
His name is chanted by Siva the three eyed.
He is the God that is worshipped at Tyagaraja's home.
Devotion to this kind of Saketa Rama is the right path, Oh my heart.

Karaharapriya Ragam :- The luxurious pastures of this raga – Kodipalai in ancient Tamizh music; the regal Kharaharapriya in Carnatic music – are evergreen and have stood the test of time for centuries. A sampoorna (complete with all seven notes) raga, this scale takes Sadja, Chatusruti Rishabha, Sadharana Gandhara, Suddha Madhyama, Pancama, Chatusruti Dhaivata, and Kaisikhi Nishada. This raga has symmetrical tetrachords in its scale. The harmonies that are possible in this raga are many and priceless, like the RG-DN or GRS-NDP prayoga.

The detailed and vivid explanation of the kriti line by line is extremely useful for people like me who are not well versed in Telugu.The analysis of the structure of the great Karagarapriya is very useful for the learners as well as others.Thank you R Subramaniam sir!

Very soothing and comforting rendition. Purity of bhava as well as perfect adherence to Carnatic Classical music standards ( rAgA, Tala, laya, shruthi) can be felt. My respectful pranams to late Ariyakudi Ramanuja Auengar and the accompanists. Thanks for
