Hi All,

1) Closer ft.Halsey: The lyrics and the music make this song simply amazing.
This is still top in my favorite list this season.

We ain’t ever getting older
We ain’t ever getting older
We ain’t ever getting older
You look as good as the day I met you
I forget just why I left you,
I was insane

2) Maroon 5’s Don’t Wanna Know : How beautiful the lyrics are:

Do you think of me? Of what we used to be?
Is it better now that I’m not around?
My friends are actin’ strange, they don’t bring up your name
Are you happy now?
Are you happy now?
I don’t wanna know, know, know, know

3) Mehram Kahaani 2:

Mujhe kuch mat de,
Bas rakh le mera nazrana,
Bin sharton ke,
Haan tujhse mera yaarana,

Mujhe mehram mehram mehram,
Mujhe mehram jaan le

4) 24k Magic Bruno Mars:
This is one different song of Bruno Mars, not the regular types of Bruno Mars, however this dance and music is amazing

Players, put yo’ pinky rings up to the moon
Girls, what y’all trying to do?
24 karat magic in the air
Head to toe so player
Uh, look out!

5) Hanikarak Bapu Dangal:
Bapu sehat ke liye..
Baapu sehat ke liye
Tu toh hanikarak hai

Hum pe thodi daya toh karo
Hum nanhe baalak hai

Discipline itna na
Re discipline itna
Khudkushi ke laayak hai

Baapu sehat ke liye
Tu toh haanikaarak hai

6) Oye Meghamla Majnu

Oye meghamlaa
Thelindhe naa chinni manase
Hey mila mila la
Minugurulaa maarindhi varase
Kannulaki ee rojilaa andhanga
Lokam kanipinchene nee vallaa

Chaala baagundhe nee ventunte
Yedho avuthundhe neethovunte

 

Loads of Love,

Prasanna Rayaprolu

Remembering Saint Thyagaraja On 169th Thyagaraja Aradhana

thyagaraja_20140728

It is no exaggeration saying that almost all traditional South Indian Brahmin families start their day with Carnatic music that too with Tyagaraya compositions.
I am no exception. From my childhood, I am grown in that environment where music is carnatic music and it is part of our life.
Though like other cousins or relatives of mine, I did’nt have training in classical music, I did have a journey with carnatic music.
Its a way to workship, its a way to live life. Particularly Tyagaraya compositions give a solace, give a hope, give happiness and sometimes meanings to the situations of life. I am indebeted to this hoky Saint Tyagaraya for his compositions..am sure several other crores of people from several generations are too.
Some information about Saint Tyagaraya(From Wikipedia and other sites on internet):
Kakarla Tyagabrahmam (4 May 1767 – 6 January 1847) or Saint Tyagaraja, also known as Tyāgayya in Telugu was one of the greatest composers of Carnatic music or Indian classical music. He was a prolific composer and highly influential in the development of the classical music tradition. Tyagaraja composed thousands of devotional compositions, most in Telugu and in praise of Lord Rama, many of which remain popular today

Tyāgarāja began his musical training under Sonti Venkata Ramanayya, a music scholar, at an early age

Tyagaraja Aradhana is the annual aradhana of saint composer Tyagaraja. Carnatic musicians from all over the world descend and pay homage to the saint. The aradhana is observed on Pushya Bahula Panchami day when the saint attained samadhi. The venue of the festival is near the samadhi of Tyagaraja on the banks of River Cauvery. On Pushya Bahula Panchami day, musicians will sit on either side of the samadhi and render the saint’s Pancharatna kritis in chorus as a mark of homage.Many exponents of Carnatic music come to perform and are watched by thousands of ardent fans of Indian classical music.Every year on Pushya Bahula Panchami day when the saint attained samadhi under the auspices of Sri Thyagabrahma Mahotsava Sabha at the saint’s samadhi at Thiruvaiyaru, Tamil Nadu, India

In this blog post of mine on the ocassion of 169th Tyagaraya Aradhana, I am sharing some of my all time favorite kritis of Tyagaraja.

  1. Endaro Mahanubhavulu : Endaro Mahanubhavulu 
  2. Jagadananda karaka :  Jagadananda Karaka 
  3. Bantureeti: Bantureeti 
  4. Nagumomu galavani: Nagumomu 
  5. Seetaa KalyaaNa vaibhOgamE: seetaa kalyaaNa vaibhOgamE 
  6. Marugelara O Raghava:Marugelara O Raghava 
  7. Nidhi chala sukhama: nidhi chala sukhama 
  8. Karuna Jaladhe Dasarathe: Karuna Jaladhe Dasarathe 
  9. Manasa Sancharare: Manasa Sancharare 
  10. Dayarani Dayarani: Dayarani Dayarani 

And here is a beautiful blog about carnatic music, do check it : http://thyagaraja-vaibhavam.blogspot.in/2009/03/tyagaraja-kritis-alphabetical-list.html

Re Kabira Maan Ja….

Sometimes, we happen to listen to some wonderful songs by some sweet accident. This song ” Re Kabira Maan Ja” is one such song. I am totally stuck with the magic of the lyrics and music of this song. In this mad rush of requirements of life , inspite of several achievments, there is some kind of strange emptiness in a person and that particular state is well described.

Movie: Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
Music: Pritam
Lyrics: Amitabh Bhattacharya
Singers: Rekha Bharadwaj, Tochi Raina

Kaisee teri khudgarzee
Na dhoop chune na chhaanv
Kaisee teri khudgarzee
Kisi thaur tike na paanv

How’s this selfishness of yours,
that you don’t take the sun, nor take the shade..
How’s this selfishness of yours,
that your feet don’t stay anywhere..

Ban liyaa apnaa paighambar
Tar liyaa tu saat samandar
Phir bhee sookhaa mann ke andar
Kyoon reh gaya

You’ve tried being your own god,
and crossed all seven seas,
Still, there is a draught within your heart,
Why is it so..

Re Kabeera maan jaa
Re Fakeera maan jaa
Aa jaa tujh ko pukaaray teri parchhaaiyaan
Re Kabira maan jaa
Re Fakeera maan jaa
Kaisa tu hai nirmohee kaisaa harjaaiyaa

O Kabira, listen to me..
O saint, believe me..
Come, your shadows call you [back]..
O Kabira, listen to me..
O saintly one, believe me..
What a loveless and ruthless person you are..

(Source: To check complete translation check this website, they have beautifully described the lyrics in the word and translated it in awesome mannerhttp://www.bollymeaning.com/2013/05/re-kabira-maan-ja-lyrics-translation.html)

Sometimes…I think Where am I heading to…

Image Courtesy google

Sometimes…I think Where am I heading to..I wonder if the failures and the struggles I face are worth suffering??? I wonder if the persistence for unknown hopes is worth for?

I wonder if I am on right path in achieving my goals and in this introspection  I wonder what my real goals are?

Achieving Money…Achieving Power…Achieving Fame ..Happiness of loved ones..smiles on their faces because of our acts and achievements….Yes these things matter…however…the real happiness does not come with tangible things…there is some unknown positive frustration..unknown feeling..unexplained feeling which says “You need to move ahead, You need to move towards your goal, the purpose you are sent to this planet’…

But the tragedy and comedy is ” I don’t know what is my ultimate purpose of life and ultimate path to my goal of life”. Such confusion is frustrating 😛

Whatever….I did kill this weekend with these thoughts and did’nt get my answer.

Do you feel like this any times?

Whatever!! Let me happily sing Lenka’s Everything at Once and let me start a brand new week with Hope and Clarity about my work 😉

“Everything At Once”

 As sly as a fox, as strong as an ox

As fast as a hare, as brave as a bear

As free as a bird, as neat as a word

As quiet as a mouse, as big as a house

All I wanna be, all I wanna be, oh

All I wanna be is everything

As mean as a wolf, as sharp as a tooth

As deep as a bite, as dark as the night

As sweet as a song, as right as a wrong

As long as a road, as ugly as a toad

As pretty as a picture hanging from a fixture

Strong like a family, strong as I wanna be

Bright as day, as light as play

As hard as nails, as grand as a whale

All I wanna be oh, all I wanna be, oh

All I wanna be is everything

Everything at once

Everything at once, oh

Everything at once

As warm as the sun, as silly as fun

As cool as a tree, as scary as the sea

As hot as fire, cold as ice

Sweet as sugar and everything nice

As old as time, as straight as a line

As royal as a queen, as buzzed as a bee

As stealth as a tiger, smooth as a glider

Pure as a melody, pure as I wanna be

All I wanna be oh, all I wanna be, oh

All I wanna be is everything

Everything at once

Have a lovely week ahead all of you 🙂

Cheers,

Prasanna Rayaprolu
