Wonderful. She makes it seem effortless, but it is tough to get it to this pitch (and back) so smoothly ...try singing it, you will know :)

My top 3 versions…

By Sooryagayathru - What a feeling to hear such a soul stirring rendition from such a young and lovely girl


48 artistes performing together - Done remotely - 48 of them synchronized! - and aptly during Covid shutdown. Loved this...

If you are a devout person, you will feel even more closer to god. If you are not devout (like me), you might start thinking of becoming one after listening to this song


Thank you!

MS

You bettered the lives of millions through your voice


Rajaji

What a man. ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C._Rajagopalachari ) A freedom fighter, country's governor general, a prolific writer of literature and here, a wonderful lyricist. Namaste!

Thoughts & notes

If I wish I can complain a lot about my life but after listening to this song, I don't wish to!

There's so much one has to celebrate about one's life, whoever you are!

Song in ragamalika - shivaranjani, kaapi and sindhu bhairavi...love playing it on my guitar...

Memories

This song remind me of my dad, someone who led an incredibly simple life, wanted almost nothing, and complained almost about nothing (except my mom's constant pestering for all things trivial:) ).

I am glad that I have somewhat taken after him when it comes to lifestyle.

He was 86 when he passed away, and until his death, he took no prescription medicines, he did everything on his own, and almost never bothered me for anything.

No wonder he liked Rajaji, whom he kept calling Rasasi as that was apparently how some harccore Tamil supporters called him.
