Notes –
Variations
1 – nidAnuDu – nidhAnuDu (meaning ‘store-house’, ‘treasure’) : In all books the meaning of ‘nidAnuDu’ (source) has been taken. It has accordingly been translated here.

Comments -
2 – nEranura – this is how it is given in all the books. As this is an addressing form, it should be ‘nEranurA’ – the vowel at the end should be elongated.

In M.S.S 's rendering of the song, I have heard
'நீ தாஸுடனி நேனு' instead of
நிதானுடனி நேனு ...
Please clarify which is correct

Mr/Ms Samudra,
If you read pallavi, ‘nI dAsuDani’ will not fit in. If it is ‘nI dAsuDani’, then what this ‘anniTiki’ means?

The telugu word – and the equivalent tamil word – ‘nidAna’ has a different meaning than the same Sanskrit word. Therefore, people seem to think that this is a telugu word. I am of the opinion that this is a Sanskrit word.

Further, in no book, the variation ‘nI dAsuDani’ is given. I do not know how MSS sings as ‘nI dAsuDani’. I understand some other renowned singers also sing thus.

As I have given 'nidAnuDani' by referring to various books, I am unable to elaborate further.
Best wishes,
V Govindan
