Our company, as part of it's 6th anniversary celebrations had the Musical Nite arranged, on 17th August ! I was only too glad to take up this opportunity, and I did sing :) Some snapss ..

Woh Lamhe - On Stage

The Woh Lamhe team, on stage :) Sri Harsha was on the keyboard.

Here comes my favourite. The twist. A rocking idea, to get "Hotel California" by the famed Eagles to be sung in the tune of an Indian Tamil song, Ennavale, from Kaadhalan. Wow ! I love such creative trials :). So, the lyrics were from Hotel California,but the tune was from the tamil song. And as an intro, we decided this , in typical mallu accent .. "All these westerneyrss copy indian songs aaand make it their on. Look et Beppi da, whose Keliyon ka chemen was stolen by some westeyrn baand, and he haad to fite zoo muj to get it baack. what a werld ? Even this song which is going to be sung was formed by 2 yeeagles sitting in Hotel Adigas(it's a hotel almost all employees in our company frequent). And now they haave roooined thaat olso.Listen to the original tune aand u oonly dezide ..(and I sang the song as mentioned above ..) and then I said - Lizen aand yenjooy the new veyrshan. What yenjoy .. chhe" Guess what we introduced our band as ?? - "Palakkad Vultures" !! :P. And it was a pleasure to have realised that our COO and CEO were seated wheile I was narrating those lines and of course :)

Here is the snap ...

Hotel Caaaliforrnia - On Stage

And finally, one more song, "Sandese Aate Hain" with Lazith,from the Bollywood movie, Border...

Sandese Aate Hain - On Stage

Singing is my passion, and I loved it that night ! And I was overwhelmed by people whom I didn't know, but who still congratulated me :) . Overall it went off really well.I just hope I get more such opportunites and entertain on and on ... !!

As vipin said, the snap of the audience would make more sense, especially since we had been at the receiving end of it for quite sometime; hmm..that was long ago, we need to see if you have improved at all over these years :D

hey, why is mallu accent always targetted? do bongs & panjus and others speak queens english?

talking of hotel calif in tamil, do u know jose feliciano's listen to the pouring rain has appeared in telugu garb in the telugu film 'pokiri' - it's a sceaming hit.
