Dear Promads:

Talattu (lullaby) is a quiet, gentle musical composition sung to put small children to sleep. 
Kotai nAcciyAr tAlATTu is one such lullaby work found in the palm leaf manuscripts at 
Alwar Thirunagari collections.  It is sung on Andal (aka Kothai, Nacciyar) the only female 
AlwAr saint among the 12 Hindu Poet-saints of South India. The source verses of this work
have been published earlier as PM release #112. We are pleased to add the English Translation
