Though I have lived a good part of my life in Tali, Calicut, it’s more than 22 years since I left there and have not been to Kerala for 10 years :) Not being a malayalee and not speaking the language for many years now has never come in the way of my enjoying Malayalam songs and watching Malayalam movies.
We watched Pranayavarnangal and loved the movie and most of all, Vidyasagar’s compositions. Aaro viral meeti is my favorite and I somehow have heard KJY’s version more than Chitra’s and am certainly influenced by that one. Though my daughters know no Malayalam, they too listen to most of the songs I sing/listen to and I was touched when they asked me to record this song for them! Pratika, Prarthana, this one is for you, on ur special day! :) Hope u like it!
