ஜோதி வடிவே தேவ மரியின், பாலன் உமையே பாடும் மனமே, நாளும் உமக்கே எங்கள் இஸ்தோத்திரமே
All glory to god.
I composed 'Devasudane' overnight for a youth service festival in 1997. The tempo and phrasing were double that of the usual songs at that time. The lyric was a challenge and I didn't want to repeat any lines. Lyricist Rettai Padhai Segar sketched it to perfection. I recorded this song in 1998 for an album.
I redid the song in 2021 and reached out to many singers to contribute. I was humbled by their willingness to contribute to the song. Each singer recorded and sent their voice files from all over the world to make this a successful project.
