Chinmayee

just now read the intereview...

aptly titled ' MISS MULTIMEDIA'

out of all one thing I can't resist asking you

Why you jumped from balcony

gunaseelan said...

Dear chinmayi, i never follow the guys who are from film industry. Certainly its because i don’t think they are special people. they have earned money through cine profession like other peoples. but 1st time in my life I have interested with u due to ur various role in society. All the best.

Kavitha said...

Good Chinmaya . Keep it up your good works. Your mom is really great. Regards to both you and mom. What is she doing . Is she housewife ?

காக்கழனி said...

nice aricle
transaltion of all languages?
Need more information.

Karthikeyan said...

I am a grate fan of you from the day I listened your first song, that was way back (January 12, 2002). On that day "Kannathil Mutthamittal" Music Album was released. I bought a cassette of the album and pick of the album was yours. Still I am very surprises when I am listening to the song. Because how a debutant singer gave that much amount of feel to a wonderful song.
From that day You always rocking with your performance on various fields.
All the best for your future.

உங்கள் நேர்காணலை படித்தேன். மனம் நிறைவாக இருந்தது. படித்ததும் எத்தனை பேருக்கு இப்படி உண்மையாய் பேச துணிவிருக்கிறது என்று யோசித்தேன். வளர்ந்ததும் அறிமுகப்படுத்தியவர்கள் மற்றும் வளர்ச்சிக்கு உதவியவர்களை உதரிசெல்பவர்கள் தான் அதிகம். உங்கள் நேர்காணல் ஒளிவு மறைவற்று உற்சாகமாகவும் உண்மையாகவும் இருந்தது. உங்கள் மனதில் தோன்றியதை எதைப்பற்றியும் கவலைப்படாமல் வெளிப்படையாக பேசிய நேர்மை என்னை மிகவும் கவர்ந்தது. உங்கள் வலைப்பக்கமும் எழுத்திலும் உங்கள் திறன் குறைந்தது அல்ல என்பதையே காட்டுகிறது. நான் எதையும் மிகைப்படுத்தி கூறவில்லை. வாழ்வில் எல்லாவற்றிலும் வெற்றியை ருசித்து இன்புற்று வாழ என் நெஞ்சார்ந்த வாழ்த்துக்கள்.

Capt Pradeep Kumar K. Padmanabhan said...

Hi Chinmayee,nice to read about you in Hindu.I used to hear the name in fm and had not any idea about you then."chinmayee" is a catchy name and it touches the soul when we sound it.
I advocated of giving my new born baby girl the same name,but failed to succeed.At last we ended up with the name "Niyatee".
All the best for all your endeavour.
Regards
Pradeep

Take care,

Read your interview and these lines too...

"I once jumped off a terrace to prove that girls can do pretty much what boys can.""

Having reading and commenting on your blogs for sometime I am not at all surprised.Lol!

My mom is on the verge of giving up, saying ‘This girl is of no use. She’s not finding someone for herself.’

All the very best to Amma!!Cheer up Madam!! Let your wishes come true soon.

Best wishes to you Chinmayi

Writing letters is such a wonderful thing. To me , that feeling of reading a hand written letter ..nothing comes close to it. Its like a photograph..we all know why we have cameras and click pictures..especially when we get to see those old photographs n albums..the distant memories revived

Swamy said...

Hi Chinmayi,
After I got shifted to Bangalore, I miss the morning Aaha FM programme of yours. I am more interested in listening to problems related to many public issues discussed and try to bring awareness on many useful areas. I keep track of such good initiatives and always feel that I should also be part of such good movement. After reading your interview in Hindu, I came across your potential in varied interests and shine on those areas. I wish you all the success in whatever avatar you do. Also it is great to learn about the self confidence you portrait and this will make you to scale further heights in life. All the best

sreekrishnanv said...

**You needn't post this comment - you could mail me back - just curious***

While reading your Interview on the Hindu, i realized something... you seem to moderate criticism about the shows or anything you host, but Why is it that positive things are allowed while negative things arent. When some one says Good or positive about something happening it seems to get accepted but Negative things arent!!

I am thinking your blog should be a place where you accept both (done in a decent way) or reject both ! You cant be partial to good !

Let me know - thanks -

Madhumitha said...

I love You! Keep up the great work....So happy to see this article!
Best wishes in your future endeavours

Chinmayi Sripada said...

To anonymous: Listening has been done

Chinmayi Sripada said...

Ajay Kumar: well, its the act of a single producer. Why blame the channel? I do not hold the channel responsible for an employee's act. And I didn't need to be part of that show to say what the tremendous gratitude and respect I have for Rahman sir as a Guru.

Deepa J said...

Loved it! Nice interview, and nice pic.

Btw, i came to your page to see your new post today on ARR. Will wait! :-)

@tpadmasini : of course it was vambu.. but couldnt tolerate the bugging of my frnd.. he had said so many times. may be i learnt the art of starting rumours... :)

balakrishnan said...

Hi,
It was surprising to know bt the other side(s) of Chinmayi,the singer.. All these days, i was of the impression dat u r a playback singer with additional role of hosting the supersinger show.. But after reading the article, i was quite impressed.. Best wishes for your future endeavours..

Anonymous said...

hi..chin im ur great fan..

Sundaresan said...

late comment though. Am a great fan of yours and have been following (!) you ever since you sang in Sapthaswarangal.. I still remember, it is 'thesulaavudhe thaen malaraale' you sang in Sapthaswarangal...way to go! Best wishes for all your endeavors.

Baskar said...

Hi,

'Chinmayee must be a relative of someone from media, and hence got a chance to sing for Rahman in 'kannathil muthamital' and to host a show in Vijay TV'. This was my thought in those days, watching you in TV shows. As the days pass, then and there u proved me wrong with your exceptional multitasking talents. 'What a maturity this girl has shown as the days goes by, the elegance and poise u carry', great improvements. And after reading the article I am stumped. As all know u as a versatile singer but u run a translation company, I know how tough it is, classical dancer (superb), blogger!, who being a girl has guts to blog?, your way of reaching your fans as u justified, a girl who knows psychology, RJ and so on. U must have had something in u really, in younger days. Kudos to your mother, a clever lady knowing how to bring up a girl. Hey girl, U is living as a girl needed for this culture. I rarely comment on blogs, because I don’t get attracted soon, u made me, after reading the article, you’re worthwhile to commented. All the best!

Thanks.
