To Dear Nina,

Here are some thoughts I got after watching your poster:

1. nikhila charaachara jeeva-praaNa nirmuulanaa niyamunDa- yamunDaa!!

In Telugu నిఖిల చరాచర జీవ-ప్రాణ నిర్మూలనా నియముండ- యముండా!!

Source: Various Telugu films – Yamaleela, Yamadonga, Yamagola, Yamudiki mogudu

Meaning: I ruler of the life of moving and non-moving life. I am YAMA!!

2. jatasya hi dhruvo mrityuh

Everything that got life shall die

Source: Bhagavadgeeta

3. sakala paapa SikshaNa dakshunDa- yamunDaa!!

సకల పాప శిక్షణ దక్షుండ – యముండా!!

I will punish for all your sins!!

Source: Various Telugu films – Yamaleela, Yamadonga, Yamagola, Yamudiki mogudu

4. yatra ha vAva bhagavAn pitR-rAjo

Meaning: Indeed the most powerful god –  The Death!

Source: Bhagavadgeeta

Nina,

Though these songs and videos in Telugu films are intended for fun(with satire, pun & sarcasm) the content is usually based on ancient hindu texts
