Amma warned me not to touch my office laptop this weekend, She wanted to make sure that I do not spend time on internet on the pretext of “Office Work”. I did not touch “Office laptop”, however I have this plan B of my Sony Vaio….the long old friend of mine 😀 .
Got to hear lots of good music this weekend and suddenly I got to hear another new stylish version of Ninnu Kori Varanam song. Basically, Ninnu Kori Varanam song is favorite of Dad, My Second Brother and me. We do check hear this song from each and every artist available. Maniratnam used this varanam in a part of a song in his film “Gharshana”. That was a super duper hit.
Got to hear this “Ninnu Kori” Varnam. This song uploaded is from the Amogha – The Concert Album. This is simply amazing. Put all the pics of Vidya Balan and added this song to make this video. Do check it. Folks were wondering, why Vidya? Why Vidya? Simple- She is just classy 🙂 . She belongs to the fine category of classy actresses of Indian Cinema along with Smita Patil, Shabhana Azmi, Nandita Das, Revathi, Shobana, Suhasini Maniratnam and Tabu.
