Happy Valentines Day!

Though I sometimes think Valentines Day came into existence because of Hallmark, nevertheless, wish you and your family all the love that the world can give you and this is what Rahman ji said on Rediff when asked to give a message for his fans:

"Love makes the heart lighter and makes you see things objectively. Hate darkens you and makes you heavy at heart and uneasy. Make a choice. God bless.- A R Rahman"

I had 8 college goers on my AKK show this morning and it was a lot of fun. I had a crash course on the normal college life and the energy and joy was infectious. It was interesting to note their takes on dating and the whole shabang.

My show started great, but into the second link, my voice cracked, and its still in the cracked stage. As of now I am going to shut eye and see whether sleep restores any normalcy to my voice.

I intend to go to the Shankar Mahadevan concert this evening. The way my voice is a recording cannot cancel my going. Anyway, Happy Kaadhalar Dhinam. Much love!!

Happy Valentines Day. I love your songs and you sing beautifully with emotions, whether its Tamil or Hindi, I enjoyed listening to your work especially Shivai, Guru and Kannathil Muthamittal.

Are you going to visit Boston in the near future?

I have started growing more respect for this lady. Smt VaniJayaram. have u heard her songs. I have listened to you sing one of her songs,'ennulil engo'. she is like a mother, soft spoken and kind hearted. i'm fortunate in gettin such peoples blessings. I once heard her tell in super singer that singers should not speak more. so how do you compensate. i guess u must not be speaking more at home. is it so? have u had an opportunity to meet her in person.
