Notes –
Variations
2 – dIna bandhuvani – dIna bandhuvu - dINa bandhu.

Comments -
1 – nAvalla – This can be attached to ‘bhAramu’ – ‘how much burden is it because of me’. However, there is already the word ‘nannu’ (nannu brOva); therefore, ‘nAvalla’ would become superfluous. Further, in accordance with ‘nApai’ given in anupallavi and caraNa, connecting to the pallavi, ‘nAvalla’ has been attached to ‘Emi nEramu’.
