pallavi: Swami, what happened to your words (matalu), Please talk (balkara)
anupallavi: You taught me several things, and you praised me with words (what happened to those words which have praised me?)
caraNam 1: You are a beautiful/great swami (sarcastic). You pressed my cheek, and my nose ring (mukkera) with all those bluffs
caraNam 2: You are probably mad at me because I sent word for you every now and then, and look at my hardships now
caraNam 3: Please don't delay in sending my partner, as I cannot stand this anylonger!
