On the start of Godavari Pushkaralu, here is a beautiful melody about River Godavari from the 2006 hit Telugu film Godavari which was Sung by S. P. Balasubrahmanyam. Music composed by K. M. Radhakrishnan and Lyrics penned by Veturi Sundararama Murthy.

Pushkaram (Pushkaralu) is one of the Indian festival dedicated in worshipping the rivers. Rivers are treated as Goddesses who give life to the living beings with their essence thru the water. Annually, this celebration happens on the banks of the 12 major rivers in India, once in 12 years along each river. Everytime Brihaspathi (Jupiter) passes thru each zodiac sign, these celebrations happen. Thus one river per year and repeats the cycle every 12 years.

However, this year for River Godavari it is a Maha Pushkaram that occurs once every 144 years (12th recurrence of the 12-year Godavari Pushkaram cycle). It is celebrated for 12 days across all the holy places on the banks of River Godavari.

I am not much of a devotional person, but would have loved to see this celebrations in-person.




Lyrics in Romanized Telugu:

Shadyamaam Bhavati Vedam, Panchamaam Bhavati Naadam
Sruthi Sikhare Nigamajhare Swaralahare

Saa Sa... Paa Pa Pa Pa Pa Ma Ri Sa Sa Ni Sa
Saa Sa Paa Pa Pa Pa Pa Ma Da Pa Pa
Sa Sa Paa Pa Pa Pa Pa Ma Ri Sa Sa Ni Sa
Saa Sa Paa Pa Pa Pa Pa Ma Ni Da Pa

Uppongele Godavari Ugindile Chelo Vari
Bhudarilo Neelambari Maa Seemake Cheenambari
Yedalu Teerchu Maa Deveri Vedamanti Maa Godari
Sabari Kalisina Godari Rama Charitake Poodari
Esey Chapa Tosey Nava Basai Valugaa
Chukkaane Chupugaa Bratuku Teruvu Edureedega

Uppongele Godavari Ugindile Chelo Vari
Bhudarilo Neelambari Maa Seemake Cheenambari

Savaasalu Samsaaraalu Chilipi Chilaka Josyam
Yese Atlu Veyangaane Labhasati Bheram
Ille Odalaipotunna Inti Panula Drusyam
Aareseti Andaalanni Adige Neeti Addham
Em Taggindi Maa Ramayya Bhogam Ikkadaa
Nadi Uregimpulo Padava Meeda Laaga Kaburu Taanu Kaagaa

Uppongele Godavari Ugindile Chelo Vari
Bhudarilo Neelambari Maa Seemake Cheenambari

Godaramma Kunkamma Bottu Didde Mirapa Erupu
Lankaa Naadhudu Inkaa Aaganantu Pandu Koruku
Chuse Chupu Em Cheppindi Seeta Kantaki
Samdehala Mabbe Patte Chuse Kantiki
Lokam Kani Lokamlona Ekamtaala Valapu
Ala Papikomdalaa Nalupu Kadagaleka Navvu Tanaku Raga

Uppongele Godavari Ugindile Chelo Vari
Bhudarilo Neelambari Maa Seemake Cheenambari
Yedalu Teerchu Maa Deveri Vedamanti Maa Godari
Sabari Kalisina Godari Rama Charitake Poodari
Esey Chapa Tosey Nava Basai Valugaa
Chukkaane Chupugaa Bratuku Teruvu Edureedega

Uppongele Godavari Ugindile Chelo Vari
Bhudarilo Neelambari Maa Seemake Cheenambari
