A Song!

Well, if you never knew, let this post be a revelation. Yeah, I’m a singer! I’ve been singing to my heart’s content since God knows when. With four years of training in Carnatic music and loads of prizes under my belt, I’d daresay, I’m passably good at it. 🙂 Wanna test my prowess in music? Just click the download link below and listen to my song. (If your browser starts playing it, right click the link and select the option “Save Link As”.)

The song’s ‘Tum Se Hi‘ from the Hindi movie Jab We Met.

Me performing at LA Fest 2005 (if the song wasn’t enough testimony 😀 )

The song struck a chord with me right when I heard it first in the movie’s promos. There’s a soulful aura all about it. Especially the lines: poignant and imploring! People usually get bored with a song after they hear it for say, five or six times. It was exactly the reverse in my case! I still get goosebumps when I hear the song! It’s virtually a favorite now.


A screenshot of my Winamp Media library: I’ve heard the song 212 times!

Hope I’ve not actually murdered it (aw, I’m not THAT bad a singer!). Do listen and comment.

    @ Hari:
    Sucky connection @ NITC? 😮 Gawd…
    And yeah, it’s MOST CERTAINLY not that case. I’m trained. Period.
    I read your post. Thanks for the info! 🙂

    @Abhi:
    Heh. Sure, anytime! 🙂 So, how did it feel hearing it continuously, 10-15 times? Hope you focused on the meaning of the song too… 😀
    I too have a DivX version, but it ain’t good. No probs, I’ll rip your DVD when you get back to TVM!
