நீதானே என் பொன்வசந்தம்

[You Are My Golden Spring]

நீதானே என் பொன்வசந்தம் ..
நீ இருக்கையில் எனக்கு
வேர் ஏது சொந்தம் ...
மனதின் உள்ளே  சத்தம்
வெளியே நிசப்தம்
கேட்பது உன் சங்கீதம்
கேட்காமல் இருக்கிறேன்
உன் சத்தம்
பேசாமல் இருக்கிறேன்
எனக்கு ஏன் இந்த சித்தம்
பெண்ணே நித்தம்
உன் சித்தம்
பேச எனக்கு
ஏன் தயக்கம் ?

Sometimes a second chance is the best gift you can give to yourself!!

Pandit Ravi Shankar - R.I.P

Today 12-12-12, I woke up to read that Bharat Ratna Pandit Ravi Shankar passed away. As an icon for Indian Classical Music he took both Indian music and sitar across the globe. Many of his albums, to name a few - West Meets East in collaboration with Sir Yehudi Menuhin, Sounds of Sitar, Full Circle: Carnegie Hall are legendary. He was a simple human but his depth of understanding was great which was reflected in all his music.  His Swara Kakali with Menuhin will always ring in my ears. I feel it as a blessing to have breathed the same air he breathed and attended at least his last concert in India - Farewell to Bangalore in last February 2012. 

Pandit Ravi Shankar - Rest in peace.
