A Malayalam prayer song

This song in Malayalam was first written by a Malayalam teacher and then composed by a music teacher in the same school. Interestingly, both teachers share the same name – Aravindakshan. I used to sing this song at school every morning during the school assembly. This is my all-time favorite prayer song and reminds me of my school days.

Song: Saarada neela rajani than
Written by: Aravindakshan master
Composed by: Aravindakshan master

Lyrics here:

Dear Jo
Thank you very much & Congratulations for uploading the so much so good , simple but elegant, ardramaya, malayala nibidamaya oru eeswara prardhana. Accidentally I got this song and downloaded, learnt it and sang during the District Level Inauguration of 'Malayala Dinavum Malayala BHasha Varacharanavum' held at Collectorate Coference Hall,Alappuzha today morning(2.11.2009). The best part of the function was that Sh. Prayar Prabhakaran an eminent Malayalam Sahityakaran & Teacher, who inaugurated the function and Sh. Chunakkara Janardanan Nair, who felicitated the occassion appreciated the prayer like anything. Sh. Chunakkara Sir, after the function specially met me and conveyed his congrats and asked for the lyrics and further details and assigned me to get further details about the author and others and pass it to him so that the same could be published in 'Sahitya Poshini' of which he is the Chief Editor.
Ofcourse your singing helped me alot to deliver the song which emphasised the words for such a rendition that every one appreciated. So thank you very much. Kindly give me further details like the lyricist's full name & address, your full name & address, music director's full name & address ( I know that it is Aravindan Master), School in which u used to sing the prayer.
Thanking u once again
