A Tribute

Hi friends,
Hope all of you and your families are safe..I mean, I hope and pray all of you who have families in Mumbai are safe.. This week I thought I'd update the blog with a prayer, Allah Tero Naam.. for the families of all the people who have lost their dear ones in the Mumbai blasts and for those who survived. (Thanks Swati for the forward on Mumbaikars..was so touching..)

Here is one of my all time favorite Ghazal. The recording quality and track are not all that great.. so, was hesitating to put in on my blog. Since Murali mentioned my attempt of Ranjishi sahi, I had some friends email and ask me where they could listen to it. So..here it is. As there is no way I can sing it the way the original is, I have tried my own variation in it.. I was also influenced by Anuradha Paudwal's rendition of the same.
Thanks so much for listening..

Album : Allah Tero Naam
Movie : Hum Dono
Music : Jaidev
Originally Sung By : Lata Mangeshkar
Sung By : Vidyu

Vidyu, nice job, how is it that you sing most of my favorite songs? Can you post some songs from your recent live show?
Swati.

Vidyu:

Beautiful delivery. I am wondering if one of you people can get the karaoke of Kahe tarsai. I strongly sugggest that you along with Swati and Srividya should sing sing that song and delight us.

Hi,
An apt tribute to sad events in India.
Musically, another nice job, I could see Nanda in that small but powerful role come to life !.
Those of you out there, (perhaps not around at the time this movie was released) may not know that there were hardly any eyes in the movie hall that was not full of tears- India had just gone through the trauma of the 1962 war. Death and destruction were everywhere- a scene reminded with full force on 7/11.
with prayers,
madhavan kutty
