Nalupu

Telugu folk song 

Black, black, people ridicule black 
But isn't it a honour to be black?  
Isn't black the attribute of Siva, the title of honour for Narayana?  
Though the sun is red and the stars are white, aren't the eyes that see them black?
Though the waves are yellow, and the nectar white, isn't the churning rod black? 
Though the cows are white and the sunset red, isn't the cowherd black? 
Though the grains are golden and the flowers white, isn't the sickle that harvests black?
