A humble tribute to Sri Balamuralikrishna


Forever Singing, Forever smiling

True to his name

BalaMurali has merged into Lord Krishna.


Vowels and consonants laced with honey

A song in every breath

Raga in every step.


Dressed the Pancharatna’s in Saptha Swara

Paying homage to ‘Endaro Mahanubhavulu’

On the stage of ‘Jagadananda Karaka’.


When he sang ‘Nannu Paalimpaga’

One could see Sri Rama came walking to him

Clouds melt into tears of rain listening to him.


His shouldering of  ‘Mile Sur Mera’

Created an anchor for a generation

Soared on the wings of Tagore’s Gitanjali.



Though we cannot see your ‘Nagumomu’ any more

Your voice will remain in our being

Ever inspiring us, for generations to come.
