Omana thinkal kidavo is believed to have been composed for putting to sleep the young Swathi Thirunal by the famous poet lyricist Iravi Varman Thampi (1783-1856 A.D), popularly known as Iryimman Thampi. Irayimman Thampi is Swathi Thirunal's maternal uncle.

Swathi's birth was a long awaited event for the royal family as it was in the danger of having to hand over the reins of power to the British for want of a male heir. The joy of the whole royal family and the people of the state seem to have been distilled into the lullaby Omana Thinkal Kidavo. To this date, it remains the most popular lullaby for Keralites, whether in Kerala or abroad, in spite of the religious tone in a few stanzas.

Music lovers believe that the flowering of Swathi Thirunal's musical creativity owes a lot of Thampi's great lullaby. Anyone who has listened to the lullaby and also to Swathi's music will find it easy to agree.
