And I had a Blast!

Right from the time we drove to VIT with Mukesh anna to catching up with Benny, Naresh, Naveen S P Charan and Prem G before the concert it was awesome fun. I think more than anything else its the galatta that all of us do backstage and that somehow translates to the performance vibe as well. Venkat Prabhu was also supposed to be a part of it but he fell sick. And it so happened that Charan asked me to co-host the show with him for a wee while until Badava Gopi took over. I never host / present live shows. That's not something I want to do. I have probably refused scores of requests to host.
I was originally supposed to be doing a couple of my songs, considering there were a host of performers. And then I sang along with Benny and of course "Where is the party" is my favourite-est song to perform. That song is so much fun. Must say that the student committee was extremely hospitable and took super care of us. The performances in the college arenas are a different thing altogether. There is a general feeling of positivity I think.
Manicka Vinayagam uncle was also there and I decided to take a dig at the super jewelery he wears. Enough to put any lady to shame. Especially his diamonds. It beyond whoah.
I caught up with Neha Bhasin backstage but only had enough time to take her leave. Was in a hurry to get back home since I had live radio this morning. Naresh was performing after Neha. Couldn't watch that either.
In all, awesome times. Eggs me to work and do a lot more.
And if anyone from VIT is reading this - Thank You!

wow, thats cool. I hope you had a good time at my college. I heard from my juniors and profs about the good show by everyone. It was our batch, when we were in final year organized this event for the first time in Jan 2003. My memories go back to those good old days... We started of with a small show and now today I feel so proud to see so many stars attending the show. Glad that you all enjoyed it.

Good to know that everyone enjoyed the program.

This is irrelevant to the on going topic, I live in Chicago and I listen to aahaafm, particularly Aahaa Kapi Club. It is very interactive. You are doing a excellent job. For the past two days aahaafm is not online. I miss the program and Chennai.

Chinmayi,

Did you share your experience singing "Aavaram Poo" from the movie "Poo". I couldn't locate it I went back until Sep 08 entries.

Could you please share your experience? I think this is one of your best. When I first heard songs of this movie, I thought it is Ilaiyaraja who scored it. Awesome job by SS Kumaran

Hi there Chinmayi! I'm from Canada, and first heard of your through Super Singer Junior..then I came to an SPB/Chitra concert in Toronto, and you were there too. Now you name is a household name at my place cause we are ardent fans of SuperSpingers. And just by CHANCE I stumbled on your blog through someone else's and I couldn't' believe it!!! You are so simple, and sincere. I have a very good feeling that you are a REALLY NICE person…I hope I am right.

Goodluck with everything you EVER do. You have accomplished a lot, and I am sure you will continue to do so for MANY MANY years to come.

I am in love w/ Tamilnadu by the way! lol

I was backstage with Benny Dayal.. And i drove back to chennai with him.. Ur energy was awesome.. Chinama Chilakama n i miss u da wer superb..
I loved the Crackers tht were displayed.. But wat a pollution to the otherwise very cool VIT.. ;)
Anyways The highlight was towards the end wen Naresh n Benny took the crowd by storm.. They just rocked, with yaethi yaethi n Pappu cant dance.. It was mind blowing..
Thanx Chinmayee..

hi Chinmayi,
This is not relevant to your blog post, but I would like to know when aahaa fm would be up and running again. I am an ardent listener of your show. The website has been down for a week now. Could you please let us know about the status? (I live outside India, so internet is the only resort to listen to aahaa fm!)
Thanks,
