This is a hit song from the movie Vivasaayi starring MGR, KR Vijaya, Nagesh, VK Ramasami and others. This movie released in 1968 was directed by MA Thirumugam. The music for the movie had been composed by KV Mahadevan. The movie was produced by Devar Films. The song has been sung by TMS and the words (lyrics) of this timeless classic, which are arguably the best tribute anyone can ever pay to the hard working farmers who feed the world, have been penned by A Maruthakasi. One can't imagine what will happen to the world if these farmers of the world were to take a six month break from their job! Every currency in the world will probably crash! Spare a thought for the farmers and enjoy the song!
