It seemed like there was no one left who had not already done a Take Two. I was one of the few and it was becoming increasingly difficult to find someone who had not done it before.
Mom said Gangaiamaren uncle would be great for this but it remained to be seen whether he would do a feature of this magnitude with a fledgling like me.
For those who do not know, Gangaiamaren uncle is also part of the Aahaa FM team, hosting a 2 hour show on weekends, called Amarkalam.
As soon as I gave him a call, he agreed immediately.
We met up at Amethyst on Saturday afternoon and the conversation was recorded on Sudhish Kamath's Macbook. The photographer from Hindu was also present.
It lasted more than an hour and a half and there were times I had hold myself from rolling on the floor. Uncle is awesome company and as far as youngsters are concerned he easily makes himself one of us and we have never felt intimidated by his status and presence in the field of music.
I have been following Sudhish's blogs even before I started blogging perhaps, but then I am never that good with dates and the like. I was formally introduced to him at the Podworks initial meetings though we had attended several common do-s. As ever I was very glad to get to know him and thanks to circumstances and time perhaps. I failed to take the photographer's name but he was part of the great company that day.
The uncut version is in Sudhish's Blog. And predominantly in Tamil.
Runs to about 83 minutes. Please give a listen. And the Take Two will be in MetroPlus today (05/06/2007)
Thanks to Sudhish Kamath for being patient enough, for this time round, working around my schedule was becoming tough due to Airtel Super Singer Junior. It is definitely one of the best features that I have been in.
