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!
