When Ilaiyaraaja grew in stature, there were songs written about him. Vaali used his wordplay to glorify his friend – Raja Kaiya Vacha, Raja Rajathi Rajan Indha Raaja are some examples of Vaali’s brilliance. But when Ilaiyaraaja started writing songs and sang, it was more philosophical.

If I am not wrong, it started with Gangai Amaren’s movies and this particular song is even more special because it’s written for his brother. It’s sad that Gangai Amaren didn’t see eye-to-eye with this brother later. But the partnership was fun until it lasted.
