Navarathri

I adore the whole Guru-shishya parampara but it's sad that we hardly practice it anymore. It's overwhelming when you get blessings from your Guru on the very special day - Vijayadashmi. Today morning I sang few keerthanas and then headed off to my Guru Sri. Perumbavur Ravindranath's place for his blessings. There I got to sing few famous krithis like Sri Varalakshmi, Saraswathi Vidhiyuvathi, initially starting off with few slokas like Sarva Mangala Maangalye and some geethas i.e. 'Sree Gananatha' and 'Vara Veena'. Collected the prasad after singing and when I stepped out I felt as though I went through a "relief-abhishekam" where I felt like all my sins are washed away through the reception of my Guru's blessings. I had done a small work for the Navarathri for Channel Doordarshan via All India Radio. A dance had been choreographed with children of various age groups participating in it. It was aired today morning at 8:00 am. There is a repeat telecast tomorrow at Doordarshan at 5:10 pm. Do try to watch it. Wishing all of you the nine blessings of Navadurga i.e. name, fame, health, wealth, happiness, humanity, education, power and devotion.

Nitish: I have met you hardly 3-4 times that too two years ago. I don't what is the "big thing" that I have done to you. I don't recollect having any sort of a spat with you during our professional meets. Anyways if you think I am in one of my glittering moments and if you think that I will not live that moment cos I don't deserve it and you may think that way cos you have the rights to voice your opinion. And leave alone me and the "others" who do think I deserve to live these glittering moments in my life.

It's nice to know that you are writing songs about me! cos no one has ever done that, it would be a pleasure to read them sometime. Thanks for all those straightforward comments and best of luck in your poetry.

dubito, ergo cogito, ergo sum said...

Damn! How did ya know? :P

Well, I did go through your profile, but that was after reading your blog :)

....and that afterthought was quite serious a thought, now that I think about it ;) But then am sure you regularly get flooded with messages and afterthoughts from a lotta ugly, short, dark, rich and not so rich people *sigh* ;).

alea jacta est!

Neha Sasikumar said...

dubito: I don't think anyone would claim to be short, dark or rich just by going through my blog :D.. and FYI, I am not looking for one right now.

Vikas: It's ok .. I missed it too.. will try to upload the video..

Neha Sasikumar said...
