So great my kingdom, the Gods asked for my life

So great my sacrifice, the taker gave me back

One day, every year, for all eternity

Amongst my people I am Mahabali


Maveli Naadu Vaanidum Kaalam

Maanusherellam Onnu Poley

Aamodethode Vasikkum Kaalam

Aapathengarkum Ottillathaanum

Everywhere I look, women are dancing

Everywhere I turn, grown men start singing

Children and flowers, they both are blooming

And in every home, a simple feast is waiting


Stay thus for me all year long

And I, Mahabali , will live on

-Suraj Mani

On King Mahabali, Onam, an utopian society
