In the midst of my rehearsals, I had to commit myself to something I've been looking forward to for a long time- my home.When architect Shankar entered all he said was 'cute' and spoke about the positive energy he experienced when he got inside.After having a look at the house on a whole I told him about the extensions I intended to make.It's alwayz been my dream to have a 'musical room' and with Shankar full of innovative plans , I was all set to make my dream come true at any cost.

Shankar's ideas are alwayz expensive but brilliant.He wanted to blend Indian designs with the country ones.I was a little hesitant cos I felt that making a home is not like doing a 'jugalbandhi' in musical terms.So he kept thinking and I kept refusing.Then came the master plan(It was a vision I had at that point)- having steps commencing after the bedroom into the entrance of my musical room.With the Veena on the side and the sony system right at the centre and the perfect combination of furniture and curtains my dream would come into existance.And when the guests arrive they can park their vehicles in the underground parking space and not to forget the swing at the right hand corner of the sloping lawn!He said everything is possible if money is not a problem.And I smiled :)I just wished I had a magic wand.

All goes well that ends well.. so if everything ends well you may get the chance to view it at snapshots.At present I am just hunting for some musical names for my home.Some names thats crossed my mind were Geet,Sargam, Surmitr, Sangam ,Meghmalhar, Andolika.Do suggest some names..till then ciao!

Hey Nice to see some interior deco stuff.. my sister used to do that a lot.. Do upload the snaps once it gets done.. As for the name i can think of "saptha swar","Raga" [In sanskrit means colors or mood]or "Sahana"[ Name of a raga]..

maybe u can call it, 'swaranjali'- an offering of musical notes or 'swaraalaya'- the home of the swar or plain simple, 'swar' ...will stick to using swar, as it is the basis of all music possible :)

That`s so Good.! So inspring to see someone put so much thought into carving such a wonderfully creative environment, even @ home..! Megha malhar is again such a wonderful name..! I have like that raaga too..! You could of course simply name it "Shruthi"!
