Chennai is getting ready for yet-another-hot-summer. Today was even worse. With the sun hitting hard, a chap was pushing his cylinder filled tri-cycle with barefoot, up the Doraiswamy subway. Life moves on.
Had to do some good amount of packing/unpacking stuff today, at home. A R Rahman gave a helping hand. You probably got that wrong. With a CD playing assorted Rahman songs, packing became a joyous occasion even for a lazy one like me. Music the life giver, reads a Rajinikanth t-shirt in the movie Johnny. How true.
Hanuman Chalisa[pdf] is probably MS Subbulakshmi‘s best devotional music rendering, I’ve heard. We know MS sings from her heart, this one comes deep down from the heart. Not a day passes by without listening to it and I unconsciously keep humming it throughout. Thanks to Tulasidas for the ever-faithful lyrics and also to Latha for recommending this one. Do listen if you get a chance.
These guys at Grab A Geek, just got spidered in Google News as a news source and they are out with an article, One Ring to Google them all, that’s partly informal and partly informational about Google’s Behind-the-scenes.

Only if life had a background score 4 every situation, just like in movies……..Would make living easier. Dont u think?
Yeah it’s super hot now days. You can almost feel moisture leaving your body.
hey maran, talk about coincidence.look at the timing of our comments posted.
off topic. a new beta version of google toolbar is available http://www.toolbar.google.com/ has some pretty cool feature. check it out guys.
Its very hot in bangalore as well 😦
And lazy. Ayyo pathikichu would be an apt song for the situation right 😉
Have you heard Surdas Bhajans(HMV) ? Try to get the cassette at Landmark/Shankara Hall.
Nanda, That was a lovely thought. I am just thinking for the moment what song would be played now, at every moment. Great idea.
Ferrari and Maran, Is that global heating of some sort.
Desikann, I remember you telling about this. I did get an assorted collection of MS bhajans which had some surdas ones. Truly great numbers.
Asorted collection is ok. But the other one is really great.
When I saw the topic, for a moment I thought it was something about ARR’s upcoming releases this summer. 🙂
I need the lyrics of Rani Tero Chir Jeeyo Gopal – a bhajan by Surdas sung by Pandit Jasraj ji.
Can anyone help?
it goes without saying – MS and Hanuman Chalisa – and no words to describe the beauty.
Hanuman Chalisa is best because
-Written by Tulsidas
-it identifies Hanuman as a form of Lord Shiva (verse 6 and 39)
-it will give moksha (verse 38)
-Kanchi Paramacharya asked everyone to read atleast once a day
-the satisfaction is certain if you chant 11 times a day (hardly takes 20 min)
thanks & regards,
