The Wizard of Music

I have no idea how I got to writing this post. And NO, I’m not the wizard of Music. 😛

I was just roaming around the net jobless. And somehow I ended up on YouTube. It so seems that YouTube and me share a relationship of lifetimes. It’s like we’ve been together for ages. Every time I end up in YouTube, I loose control of myself. The makers of YouTube implemented a feature that made sure that their visitors never left YouTube. Its called Related Videos and it comes up on the right side of all the videos of YouTube. That’s the worst part. I really wish I could find one video on YouTube that didn’t have a single related video. Even video that were uploaded just seconds earlier somehow find related videos. I never get myself to leave YouTube once I get there. Well, that’s not what I’m writing this post for.

As I was clicking on the related videos on YouTube, I stumbled upon a London choir singing A R Rahman‘s Balleilakka from the movie Shivaji – The BOSS. It was awesome to see an entire foreign choir sing an Indian song; not just an individual but an entire choir. And then my focus was to listen to all those related videos to that one. There were so many. So many. I myself don’t know how many versions of the same song I’ve heard right now. ( Yeah, I have it playing in the background as I’m writing this post. 😛 ) And I don’t know how many more I’m going to hear. I think I’ve forgotten how the original song sounded like. I’ve been listening to different versions of the same song all night. 😛

Listening to all those songs, I realized how awesome we Indians are. We should be proud of it. I’m well proud of it. But this post is not about Indians either. Its one Indian in particular. The one and only A R Rahman. I have no words to describe this man. ‘Wizard’ is not just enough to describe his talent and the way he knows his talent. I wish I knew the ultimate word to describe this great personality. Continue reading “The Wizard of Music”

A Fresh New Start!

Hi, It’s a perfect time to start something/anything new. It’s the start of another brand new year of the Georgian Calendar. First of all, Happy New Year Folks. 🙂

New Year 2014
Happy New Year 2014 Folks 🙂

Well, I believe everyone starts blogging with an introduction of themselves. I feel it’s simply because they have nothing to express. Atleast that is my case. I’ve been having this idea of maintaining a blog for a long time, but I never had any specific topic to talk about. But then I realized I was kinda good at content writing and reviewing. I finally decided that I MUST start speaking out for my own. And I believe I need to start atleast now. Better late, than never right? 😉 So, as everybody, I too, am going to start “blogging” by introducing myself.

My name is shine. I hail from the state of India which is more commonly and widely known as “God’s Own Country“.  Officially known as ‘Kerala‘, the Malayalam (മലയാളം) speaking state is a hub of budding talent in every field under the sun. It is one state in India that claims 100% literacy (that is because many other states in India are still struggling to educate themselves).
