ಕಾಡು ಮಲ್ಲಿಗೆಯೊಂದು ಕಾಡಿನಲಿ ನರಳುತಿದೆ ಬಾಡಿ ಹೋಗುವ ಮುನ್ನ

A lovely metaphor in the form of a flower somewhere in the woods that feels isolated and not appreciated, because it feels that it has not gotten a chance to decorate someone's hairdo. The song appears also to refer to an individual that feels detached from the world, and longs not only to reach God but, at least, to be valued in the world. It is very ably sung by Vijay Prakash of 'Jai Ho' fame.

As you listen to it, you can also feel the pain that the flower might feel ... Glory to the poet who captured the emotion in words, and to the singer who brings the emotion alive.

In this case, it is not necessary for me to create a Kannada transliteration: It is already available on the web.
