On being interested......

Got these mails reg the Pongal show with Gangaiamaran sir. Some said I looked disinterested. And the others had something or the other to say.

I dont know how it came acros that I was disinterested. As far as I was concerned I had fun, I was dancing as much as the small space allowed me to. And it was unfortunate for Saindhavi that I was too tall for her :)) Actually we were contemplating on making her stand on a brick.

For one, I was not intending to take part in this show, and refused initially, plainly because I dont belong, and dont know most songs. One of the mails even asked me why I kept quiet sometimes and didnt sing along. I dont know the songs. Period. I sang the first line, or whatever I knew and for the rest I had fun dancing.. well if you can call it that. And there was a dearth of mikes as well. So I did what I could under the circumstances of not knowing the lyrics, and in between there was a 1 and a half hour break thanks to a technical snag. We went there for the shoot at 6:00 p.m. and returned home at 2:00 a.m. We were extremely hungry, and I was dead on my feet. And most of the songs were recorded only after the technical issues were rectified. Thats when I learnt I have to do something about my stamina.

Bottom Line : It was a good show, I had fun and I didnt sing because I didnt know the lyrics and not because they were "dappankoothu" songs and to make things clearer, I love the fast paced songs.. I dont have a problem with singing them :)) LOL

What did you sing in the Symphony program? It is a good program where the anchor does his homework well and gets the best out of the interviewee - too bad I missed it.

Yikes! I didnt think you looked disinterested at all, in fact you and that guy Shyam(I think that was his name) were the only two who were thoroughly enjoying yourselves without inhibitions.

I have always griped to my mom about the lack of mikes and that was the part that was a bit off-putting. Other than that, the program was enjoyable in every aspect! Cheers~

I had the feeling that you didn't know the songs and its understandable ! Infact we were discussing this exact issue as we watched the show.

Heard thru my friends that you had sung a song by yourself in the beginning and that the song was very nicely sung.!! I missed it..., got to see only the final 'Gumbal' piece.

Introduction songs was really good and infact I didnt expect such a song from Amar's program. However joing with him is like join the youthfull gang. Show was really good indeed

You seem to be interested in clarifying it so much, that you've ended up posting it twice....or....is it me ? ;)

very true... your first one was good... and think evryone joined and the rest of them lost the enthu midway or even at the start... that was a bit not upto the level we were expecting from a huge gang of talented artist in front of d camera..

Anyways u proved ur mettle with one... and so did others... u guys had fun... and overall it was enjoyable... thats the point of it..

U rock!!! keep it going!!!

What does "O E Pattaani" mean?

Thanks,

Soundar

Arvind said...

'pattani' immediately springs up 'nooru pattani kadangala adaikalame' from MMKR :-D what a movie !!!

Chinmayi said...

@ soundar: Over Enthu Pattani :)

Soundar G said...
