Thank You Fellow Bloggers & Music Lovers!
Well my Blog crossed a milestone of 5000 hits and I was aware of this only when someone reminded me today! This is thanks to my Blogging Guru "Joseph Thomas" who introduced me to Blogging in the first place! After that it has been a wonderful journey all the way since April-2006 of meeting and knowing awesome singers and musicians from all over the world! I have come to understand the power of the Internet and the amazing opportunities it offers musicians. Everyday it's a process of learning. Due to the continuous support, encouragement and criticism of people like Murali, Meera, Swati, Vidyu, Jo, Ajay,Madhavanji, N.V ji, Ganesh, Anup, BlueByrd, James, Kiran, Barani, Kathy....the list goes on....this journey is becoming more and more exciting day by day. I am also slowly derieving a wicked happiness by exploring into different and wild realms of singing which others may fathom, but I have been in quest for the unattainable in music......right from when I began this journey. It's my bad luck that I have been deliberately stamped by many as one who is good for only Hindi just because "Meri Awaz Suno" was in hindi and I sing hindi well! This all in spite of the fact that, I was introduced to Film singing by none other than the late "Ravindran Master" as early as in 1993, much before "Meri Awaz Suno"! The same people call the Udit Narayans, Shanker Mahadevans, Adnan Sami's (who are excellent singers in Hindi) and they sing in chaste Malayalam and we heave a sigh of relief ....and say that... mayalam music has been saved from our horrible Malayalee singers...God bless the Udit's and Samis....! Well strange are the ways of the malayali sometimes. They enjoy my "Ennakkaruppin Ezhazagu" and "Poorumo En Shyama Meghame" and then say that I should sing only hindi! It's a pity! Some even tried to force this image upon me for their personal gains! I am pained by this attitude and have lost valuable time in the Film field due to this. My talents have not been properly utilized by any of the so called composers in Malayalam except the late "Raveendran Master" to some extend. This Blog is also an eye-opener in the beginning of my fight-back! Here I am free to express every aspect of my musical skills and no one can suppress or take this freedom away from me! Here you will find my mood swing again and again as I don different colors. I do not believe living in a self created closed world of either musical ego (where I am stuck with singing or listening only to a particular type of music and call it musical intelligence as some do) or the other egoistic world called the celebrity world, by many! Times have changed. If celebrities think that they are gods then they are wrong! If the public thinks that celebrities are gods then they are wrong too! We all are human with flesh and blood. I like to know what I am, directly from those who interact with me. I am open to good suggestions which would improve the artist in me. I would also like to help others to follow my path and use the little knowledge that I have gained to their advantage. Once again I thank each and everyone who has been a part of these 5000 hits! Hope you all continue to come here. I will continue to entertain, educate and enlighten you with what I have, and what I learn on the way!
I have included a download page where all the songs which are posted can be downloaded. This is in response to many who have bad internet connections and cannot hear the songs online. The link is below the Song Player to the right.
Also check out this new duet at Swati's Blog which we have tried together. Please leave your comments about this song on her blog.
