This melody is from the 1981 hit Telugu film Saptapadi ( = Seven Steps, an important rite in Hindu Marriage ceremony) that was Sung by S. P. Balasubrahmanyam and P. Susheela. It's Music was composed by K. V. Mahadevan and Lyrics penned by Veturi Sundararama Murthy. This song summarizes the entire movie in these few lines.

The concept revolves around the conversation the characters Yajulu (J. V. Somayajulu) and Raju (Allu Ramalingayya) have about caste and if it is a necessary evil. Caste system so ingrained in Indian system and root for so many conflicts sometimes. Although when this was written it was more to point that there is no such thing as born in lower or upper caste but one should be judged by their actions. However things seemed to have been flipped lately. Caste seemed to be taken even more importance and more advantage if you are born in a lower caste. The reason why the different policies have been put in to uplift the lower caste and untouchables have been misconstrued gravely as time passed by. Sadly that is giving an edge to everyone to use their caste as the primary right while choosing friends, relationships, work, politics, etc. Judging a person by actions has somehow lost in the game of changing people to stop judging by caste.



Lyrics in Romanized Telugu:

Yeh Kulamu Needante Gokulamu Navvindi
Maadhavudu Yaadavudu Maa Kulamelemmandi..O..Aa..
Yeh Kulamu Needante Gokulamu Navvindi
Maadhavudu Yaadavudu Maa Kulamelemmandi

Edu Varnaalu Kalisi Indhradhanasauthaadi; Anni Varnalaku Okate Ihamu Paramuntaadi
Edu Varnaalu Kalisi Indhradhanasauthaadi; Anni Varnalaku Okate Ihamu Paramuntaadi
Yeh Kulamu Needante Gokulamu Navvindi
Maadhavudu Yaadavudu Maa Kulamelemmandi

Aadi Nunchi Aakaasham Moogadi; Anaadigaa Thalli Dharani Moogadi
Aadi Nunchi Aakasam Moogadi; Anaadigaa Thalli Dharani Moogadi
Naduma Vacchi Urumuthaayi Mabbulu; Naduma Vacchi Urumuthaayi Mabbulu
Ee Nadamanthrapu Manushulake Maatalu; Inni Maatalu
Aa.. Yeh Kulamu Needante Gokulamu Navvindi
Maadhavudu Yaadavudu Maa Kulamelemmandi
