Notes –
Comments -
1 – anuvu isumanta lEdu– the word ‘anuvu’ has many meanings ‘convenience’, ‘fit’, ‘suitable’. In the books this word has been translated as ‘not convenient time’ which seems to be the traditional meaning given for this word. Accordingly, it has been adopted here also.

Dear Sri Govindan
In WBW Meaning setion of anupallavi, ‘to’ is omitted in ‘In order watch (jUcuTaku) the fun (vEDuka)’
Is not ‘isuka’ the more common form for sand an not ‘isumu’ ?
Regards
Govindaswamy

Dear Sri Raghu,
I have corrected the typo. Thanks for pointing it out.

Both 'isumu' and 'isuka' mean sand. But in order to convey the meaning 'very little', 'isumu' is used and not 'isuka'. Kindly refer to isuka and isumu
Regards,
V Govindan
