Lovely to hear Dido. Very fine emotions and words are not enough always and so the music and her voice add the charm to this song. thank you. I also like her ‘white flag’. Have you listened to ‘if i rise’ from 127 hours which is a great composition as always from the maestro AR Rahman himself and dido is the artist who turns it into an epic performance. The emotion of this song is confidence.
Lovely hindi song. Its been a long time since i listened to hindi songs, now a days i could hear only noisy item numbers which i am least interested in and only a few catch my attention and this one is definitely there in the list. Some hindi songs will remain etched for a long time and only because they have a soul to it.
On some other note listen to this classical influenced song from the movie ‘maalai pozhudhin mayakathile’ beautiful rendition by the singer Karthik. Another version of the same song is sung by Bombay Jayashree. Her voice is always magnetic. The song has the charisma to linger in your mind even after the song is over.
Till now the only movie I watched twice in theater is “KO” 😀 The song locations are exemplary and the songs so refreshing. Norway they say the locations are. As for the movie the fast pace is a plus; according to me only such movies are a winner these days, the fast pace gives you no time to think ‘is it logical!’ which in itself is a success. Recently only this movie is a winner among the other recent Tamil movie releases. The songs makes you want more of it again and again in an endless loop especially – Venpaniye….
And the other favs of recent times are from the movies “Engeyum Kadhal” and “180”. Listen to the recent additions to my music library Audiovisual Dreams on the sidebar.
Three musical stars which are glittering in my sound sky now. This is a musical post, Enjoy the beats and melodies with me.
1. Taylor Swift – Fifteen.
2. Guzarish from Ghajini
3. Kadhal Anukkal from Endhiran
Warm greetings to every soul, I’ve been away for so long nah! I know.. Howz everything at your end friends? This is the latest spot I went to along with my hubby – first mention as hubby in my bloggie.. I’m so happy 😀 Life is splendid as always not to forget the new things it teaches everyday and the little fights for no reason which it brings to make it more cute. I spent four days in this heavenly place and every moment is a memorable one. Thought my blog needs a face lift and so here it is a new theme with a gorgeous background to enhance its spirit :). I think I can do a lot of photoblogging with this kind of vast view for the blog. I’ve got new digi-cam as a present for my wedding. And many many photographs are on their way to this blog of mine. Been travelling to and fro many places should say from state to state and from district to district. 😉 Often thoughts get stuck with doubts about future which is normal i guess. And as always music keeps a good company when he is not around. A flock of new songs are soothing my soul. I finished reading ‘Deception point’ by Dan Brown which was ok and my current read is ‘Atlas Shrugged’ by Ayn Rand. My hubby got promotion after our marriage -yaaaaay 😀 which is absolutely great and which makes him more busy than ever leaving only the weekends which we keep spending by frequent travels to my home and his home or else some relative’s home. With all these events life is great and I’ve not sped up the friends chatting sessions on phone as I’vnt got new number for now. Today is Aadi Perukku / Aadi Padhinettu – a festival to worship river esp kauveri river. So I had lot of fruits and prashad which is raw rice + jaggery +coconut.. mmmmm yummmm… I don’t know when i’ll get a internet connection at my place. This is just a short visit to give life to my blog. Thats all for now, have a great week and yes consider like i’ve sent a virtual friendship band to all you people who came to visit this blog home of mine. Can you guess the place? it is in kerala.
Current song: En Idhayam from Singam.
Feeling my LeMoN state 😉 more intensely. May be the effect of the febraury month! I’ve been searching for nature wallpapers and I am trying to save as much as possible. Been to beach today evening 😀 it was crowded yet I felt sense of freedom once there. Only yesterday returned back from my hometown. Music as you know is always my best companion 🙂 I listened to a solid five hours of really beautiful songs on the way back home which would have been a tiring seven hours trip to boredom otherwise. Music keeps my mind alive and away from the depressing boredom. Love makes the admiration towards nature and music more passionate. Enough blabbering for now I guess 😉 Hey forgot to tell something, ‘HAPPY HOLI’ – may the nature around you, the music which it brings and the love you feel bring more and more beautiful and vibrant colors to your life.
Current song would be Anbil Avan from Vinnai Thandi Varuvaya.
A long lazy night with music as company
Skipping the list of songs one after another
Finding nothing impressive as it used to be
Sleepless soul sees nothing beautiful as sleep
Laying sleepless with dreams of distant lands
Visions never seen before unfolds in front
Of the closed eyes and like magic you enter
Into the world of dreamers and dreams far
The chirps of evening birds, the whoosh
Of a distant falls, rabbits running home
Deers hopping swiftly, peacocks spreading
Squirrels eating fruits, sky pouring drizzles.
Walking down the less trodden mud lane
The night covers the forest and whooshing
Of the falls the only sound to be heard
The glorious moon on top of the hill
There seen was a yacht with the oars
Starting to sail along the flow of the water
Huge trees enveloping the banks of river
A tiny bridge bridging both the shores
Tie the boat on one shore, passed along
The little bridge and there you see a gate
Made of gold and silver glittering in the light
Of moon, without touching it opens to welcome
A fountain of water gliding like shining silver
A palace with the grandeur of the heaven
A door with a million holy bells ringing opens
Inside you get, there you see the unexpected..
Divinity of laying in mothers lap, finally I start sleeping.
Please note that this post has nothing to do with the actual lemon. Just take the Capitalized letters. What they mean to you? May be nothing. But for me it has started to mean something more than usual and more than just letters it has taken a transformation to show me the fundamental needs or so to say essence of Life.
You might remember memorizing the alphabets in your primary school days through a song. You go till L,M,N,O,P and then you pause and then start again with L,M,N.. In a strange way it highlights these letters more than others.
May be it is an abbreviation and from my point of view the expansion of which would read Love, Music and Nature. The three things one cannot be without. Every single being is surrounded by these three components and they are entwined within themselves and into your being and your living. Every direction you turn you will encounter with nature, music and of course love.
LOVE: You may think that it is not possible that wherever you go you’ll have your loved ones around. It is not that. A smile from the person whom you just a while ago crossed spreads love. A simple gesture of giving way to you while you are in the hurry to move ahead is an expression of love. A helping hand which collects the things you just dropped is a facet of love. And the indeed the nature around is a huge symbol of love. Music is possible when your heart knows to love. Love is through and by the following senses – To see someone Smile, To respond by giving a hug. This part is symbolic of the Goddess Durga.
MUSIC: Music is part of life. When there is nothing you can hear you feel terrible as if some part of you is not with you. Music is everywhere and even within you – the heart beats. The hustle of leaves when there is a mild breeze. The waves of the oceans. The sound of the bees and birds. The voice of a baby. The Music is from every nook and corner of nature around us. Music establishes and get established through the listening and singing. This part is symbolic of the Goddess Saraswathi.
NATURE: Nature, there is no you without nature. There is no one without nature. Mother Nature embraces everything living and non-living. Nature is sky, sea, clouds, water, fire, wind, tide, breeze, trees, plants, animals, birds, earth, rainbow, desert, flowers, fruits, mountains, forests, and the whole universe inclusive of us humans. The air we breath is from nature. The water we drink is from nature. The food we eat is from Nature. The shelter we build is from nature. We are part and parcel of nature. The senses active are the smell of earth and the produce from earth like flowers, fruits, the sound of nature, the sight of nature, the touch of nature and the taste of nature. This part is symbolic of the Goddess Lakshmi.
Coming to LeMoN: As it represents all of them there should be something unique about it and that is the union of all senses. The squeezing sound, the fragrance, the taste, the look and the feel of lemon is indeed is as unique as the whole concept of life.
“Find Love, Create Music and Embrace Nature”
A R Rahman, the talk of the world after winning the Golden Globe, Bafta, and the Oscars. He has made all Indians proud by representing India in the stage of world film makers, honoring our country India, praising his mother quoting the lines from a bollywood movie, showing his pride for his mother tongue Tamil by saying "ELLA PUGHAZUM IRAIVANUKKE – எல்லா புகழும் இறைவனுக்கே!" meaning "ALL PRIDE IS TO GOD HIMSELF", highlighting the strength of love by saying "I chose love and so I’m here" and also exhibiting his love for music by performing ‘Jai ho..’. Every bit being humble makes him more and more lovable and likeable. Height of Humbleness, Passion for Music, Sincere to God and Glory to India. JAI HO RAHMAN.
The concept is not new to web users. But the composition is indeed awesome by very own Rahman ji. An attempt to rebuild humanity and to induce sharing love openly. Lovely thought. Another lovely song from the movie Kadhalna summa illai sung by sujatha. The song is so very melodious. Give it both the ears, you will love it for sure.
Update: Did you like the small rose from my previous post, then to tell you all that it has bloomed completely and now it is here for you to look and cherish. Cute little rose. It has turned pink now 😀 I am in love with roses…
I am expecting all the dangled pieces of my life’s jigsaw puzzle to fall into places. Hoping every other day shall bring success and happiness. It is such nature’s angels who make me forget everything and enjoy the little sweet moments of life.
