I am back to hosting on Television. On Vijay TV.

I will be hosting Airtel Super Singer Junior this time. I am looking forward to newer experiences and a lot of children! Hoping and praying this will go well.

My show on Aahaa 91.9 has been going good. The experience is different. Quire an experience because the only way to communicate is by my voice. I am learning to manage slurs in speech and hiccups as well. Breathing in between. All the jazz. Talking on radio is a completely different game altogether. I see that it is not easy. If what I say is scripted, it sounds like that. Like I am reading out.. even if I write myself what I want to say. I learn that it requires presence of mind to respond in a proper manner to people who speak to you. I have my set of regular callers now, which feels wonderful. I also realize I have a whole range of different ways of talking. Why I take on so many personas is a mystery. But it happens subliminally. Its not a conscious shift in modulations. I have not made any decisions on the way I HAVE to sound in my show yet. I am taking it as it comes. There are days when I am reflective, days when I am energetic, days when I am physically zapped, days when I m joyous and it reflects in my show. I don't really know whether I want to veil all that all the time. Of course I cant carry around a morose tone if and when I am emotionally down.

One of the things I have to manage is hunger. 3 hours non stop between 12 and 3 pm. We are not allowed to take even water inside the studio, and my stomach starts protesting. Loudly. I do get some respite in between for a few minutes. But other than this hiccup, I am having a great time.

I watched Guru for the 4th time today. :D With mom and colleagues. At Inox. Pretty cool. Its amazing to listen to the way Tere Bina opens in the movie.. Life is good. :)

Good Luck Madam!

So you are enjoying Inox eh?

How is your Mitsubushi Lancer working out?

Narayanan Venkitu said...

That's wonderful news. Look forward to watching the Super Singer contest again.

I am surprised you don't get breaks to take a snack or a drink during your FM program. If you do..I would strongly recommend some snacks...I can understand how it feels to go on 3 hours.!!

Guru - rocks..no doubt..I have ordered the DVD...waiting for it!

Hi,

We had met once in a bloggers meet at Chennai, with Kiruba. I had come from Bangalore. Quite frankly, I have not kept a track of your blog...and I am not much of a movie guy too. When I heard Guru's song and saw your name as the singer, I thought I had heard the name somewhere and then I remembered meeting you. At that time, you had got a break in 'The Rising'.

Its almost embarrassing, people have been appreciating Guru's music for so long and here I come, realising it now.

You've come a long way, I see. Best wishes and keep doing well :)

Hi Chinmaye,

Watching Airtel super singer Junior show is really great......as usual u carry urself well on shows.....

One frank opinion from me is that ur anchoring was better in the previous Airtel super singer show compared to the current show

Alagappan said...

Hi Chinmaye,

I searched high & low to find the name of the album or movie to download or buy the song "krishna krishna... tajco... anthapuram undu..." sung by anuradha sriram and one of the super singer contestents on the wild card round.

I would really apreciate your help if you can give me the name of the album in which this song features. I really loved that song.

I like you as a singer than an anchor.

Cheers

hi
i thought it would be better to leave it to you as you have compered the event and chronicling the same would be nice...

Anonymous said...

hi
i have added some more info to what Mr.OldWineinNewpot has done.But it looks really haphazard.Even i would like this event to be logged somewhere in the net so that many can benefit like turning the pages of a book in the years to come.
