Dear Sri Govindan
You have mentioned as
“nerata – the form the word ‘nera’ is doubtful”.- In TTD book this is given as nirata which means very much. In the kriti ‘nI sari sATi’ niratamu is used.
In this book Pallavi is given as
nIdu caraNamulE nIdu caraNamulE gati(y)ani
1nerata nammina vADanurA O rAma

Dear Sri Govindaswamy,

As this kRti is coming in category of 'doubtful kRtis', it might not serve any purpose arguing over the words of the kRti.

Regards,
V Govindan

Still the lyrics of this krithi is doubtful as many Musicians have given different lyrics. Especially in charanam, " E vagaganainanu" is yet to be confirmed.
