'Isai na enna?' 'Isai na meesic'. That was a popular comedy track from a Tamil film. 'Isai' means music in Tamil.Being one of the craziest fans of music, I too wanted to learn carnatic music from my childhood just like many others. But never had a chance and time to. This has always been a wound in my heart. But I never lost hope. I am a good singer-bathroom singer,bedroom singer, closed room singer or whatever. I feel great when i sing a melody number, exactly with the same pace as the original one.That seriously gives me a sense of satisfaction.Or for that matter to anyone who tries.
Music according to me is a magical word. Makes me feel happy when am actually not!!! Few common favorites in South India are music scored by Illayaraja,Rahman,Vidyasagar,Harris.......well, adding to this list are M.S.Viswanathan and other black-and-white ,Gemini and others. I use this small piece of article to remind you of those mesmerising ones of the past. How can one forget the golden melodies of MGR , Sivaji ;'thottal poo malarum'(padagoti),'avalukku enna'(server sundaram),'unnai ondruketpen'(pudhiya paravai),'mannavane azhalama'(karpagam)......and many more.Music keeps me entertained during my long journey to office, it soothes me when i am disturbed by unwanted thoughts.
