Saadinchane is composed in Raga Arabhi in Telugu. In this kriti, Tyagaraja has a rather playful list of complaints against Krishna who, he says, is a deceiver and that he changes his stance according to the situation! True. In Mahabharata, we have Krishna using guile to get his way a number of times. It is interesting that the God we see as the teacher of Dharma, the same God we portray as using non-straightforward means to achieve just ends. In Sadinchane, Tyagaraja also complains that in spite of doing all that is right, God does not come to him! This song paints a very human picture of Tyagaraja.
Watch below Sadinchane as sung in the festival at Thiruvaiyaru to celebrate this Saint-poet.
