Where: Good Ol' Singggggara Chennaeeeei ( read as how the new age VJ's pronounce Tamizh)
When: My Undergrad days
Imp., note: Decided to do this song.
It just so happened that I was one among the 2 in our group who could *really sing* some of the sangathis in this song. This number was narrowed down as an entry to the group competition and we 2 were definitely not a group by any stretch of imagination. So me-- the royal pain that I am, took it up as a challenge to get the group to sound as one, to break all predictions, change the face of the department and uphold the name, blah blah blah!!
Every one of us got to see each other more than necessary in the 2 weeks that ensued. But, little did I realise at the end of 2 weeks that we were still stuck in the 1st line, specifically the word Thaazhthiraavaai. Somehow to my ears, the notes never felt right. My ears seemed to perceive it as the oddest notes ever, and invariably I ended up saying *CUT* and each practise session was more of a bottomless pit akin to an Akshaya Pathiram
So when Murali suggested this song, I was so overcome by nostalgia that I gladly agreed. One thing that worried Murali immensly (as I was led to believe later ofcourse) was whether our roles would be reversed, and if I would don the taskmaster's role? Would he have to sing Thaazzhhh..thiiiraa...vaaaaiiiiii again and again and again?
Pssttt.. It was only 2 months ago that I found out how much my juniors 'liked' me!(?) Every weekday/weekend for a month to learn just one line?? What a way to remember??? *LOL*
