Mel Mel Mel Vinnile

A coming of age story of Faisi. The song evokes togetherness in working towards a common goal.

To listen to the song, click play:

Mel mel mel vinnile…. chekkeraa* kilikalaayi(2)
[High high high up in the sky…. like free birds ]
Veruthe… naam ithile…
[casually….we are sailing through here]

Etho kombil koodundakkan pokaaraayi
Thazhe mannin nerum thedarayi
[It’s time to go make a nest on one of the branches
and to find the truth of the land down there]
Orey niram, swaram…
Ini orey vazhi, mozhi, sruthi
[One color, one sound… (we have)
Now one way, one word and one tone ]

Mel mel mel vinnile…. chekkeraa* kilikalaayi(2)
[High high high up in the sky…. like free birds ]
Veruthe…. naam ithile…
[casually….we are sailing through here]

Va vaa thanuvaa vaa…. naarum konde
[Come come down you come…with strings (for the nest)]
Mel mel menju konde
[High up grazing]
Oh..en mohamaake …
[Oh…all my wishes..]
Oh… nin snehamaake
[Oh…all your love]
Menanju koodithaa..onnuchernnu othukoodi…
[..make this nest… all of us together… ]
Vinnil nee mannilekkethidaan
[…so that you can come down to the earth from the sky]

Mel mel mel vinnile… chekkeraa* kilikalaayi (2)
[High high high up in the sky…. like free birds ]
Veruthe… naam ithile…
[casually….we are sailing through here]

Etho kombil koodundakkan pokaaraayi
Thazhe mannin nerum thedarayi
[It’s time to go make a nest on one of the branches
and to find the truth of the land down there]
orey niram, swaram
Ini orey vazhi, mozhi, sruthi
[One color, one sound… (we have)
Now one way, one word and one tone ]

Mel mel mel vinnile…. chekkeraa kilikal naam(2)
[High high high up in the sky…. like free birds we are]
ithile…onnithile….
anayaam… onnithile..
[here… right here…
let’s rest…right here..]
ithile…onnithile….
anayaam… onnithile..
[here… right here…
let’s rest…right here..]

*chekkeruka means roosting in Malayalam. So “chekkera kilikal” are birds who are not roosting.
