S.G. Kittappa - Kodaiyile

When I posted the songs of S. G. Kittappa on August 4, 2010, one of the comments by the follower of the blog was " What happened to Kodayila Ilaippari, the famous ragamalika of Kittappa? I am searching and it still ekudes me". Sandy Archer

...that as you start the first full work week of the New
Year you should do no 'work' at all.

The point of your activities throughout the day is not to
make a living, but tomake a life; not to 'work' but to
create joy. If you are doing what you are doing merely
to 'pay the bills,' you will have missed the major reason
for All Of Life.

The purpose of life is to know and express Who You
Are. If you do other than that during the days and times
of your life, you will have not used those days and times
in a way that profits your soul. It is soul profit we are
after here, not body profit.

Sir, Very true & interesting presentation by you.

I am struggling day in and day out - to wind/unwind the long unused cassettes with a reynolds pen (with cover) works very well. I am in the process of converting them to MP3 - almost 95 % done. Then I just want to keep two cassettes (wrapped ones)one Sony and one TDK for posterity preservance.

Thanks much for bringing out such nostalgia in very innovative ways!

Brings back a lot of good memories!

I have been struggling to convert my cassttes to MP3 manually on my boombox, but it is slow going- with around 400 of them to convert.
Does anyone know of a professional setup that can do this ?
I would be obliged if you can let me know.
Once I get this done, maybe some of this content can be uploaded to Think Loud.

........that the method of the enterprising is to plan with
audacity and execute with vigor.

Christian Nevell Bovee said that, and it is a valuable
observation. As we approach this holiday season, and
you begin thinking about the New Year ahead, plan
with audacity.

And as you move into the New Year, executive your
plans with vigor. There is excitement in life -- but you
have to put it there.

Incidentally, you may begin executing with vigor right now. Why wait?

..that everything is perfect Right Here, Right Now. And
Right Here Right Now is all there is.

Forget about the past. It does not exist, except in your
memory. Drop it. And stop worrying about how you're
going to get through tomorrow. Life is going on Right
Here, Right Now -- pay attention to that and all will
be well.

Embrace the present moment with gratefulness and
wonder, and you will turn it into whatever you have
been waiting for.

How is that !

With lot of cricket news such as Dravid's retirement, Tendulkar's 100th century, etc., I fumbled upon this photo which will bring a smile to my generation.

Concert - Sanjay Subramanian

Sachin inspired me to achieve a milestone. Hence this 
concert ! (No 300)

  1. Varnam - Nenaruleni - Balahamsa
  2. Neeke theliyaka - Bhairavi
  3. Pullumsilambina - Sankarabaranam
  4. Gaanamurthe - Gaanamurthi
  5. Maravakave - Saama
  6. Aanandavalli - Neelambari
  7. RTP - Aalaapana - Kaapi
  8. RTP - Violin
  9. RTP - Thaanam
  10. RTP - Pallavi
  11. Thani
  12. Mannupugazh - Ragamalika
  13. Virutham - Karpagame and Managalam

...that the next step is the most important step. Take it
now. Do not wait.

Life is not going to come down there and sprinkle
glitter dust on your shoulders to let you know that you
are Good...or that you are walking the Right Path...or
that you are making the Best Decision.

Take the next step. Right now. Stop waiting for a "sign"
from the "gods." Your sign is your intuition, wrapped
in your desire.

Hesitation is not a stopping place on the road to heaven.

Tendulkar has done it

He has done it. He has scored his hundredth hundred.

I may stop watching cricket.!

History repeats itself. Yes whenever Sachin scores century India has hardly won - once again we have lost to Bangladesh
March 16, 2012 9:20 PM
Blogger hvaidya said...
Dear Mr. Bhaskaran,
Mr. Varadarajan was positive in his thoughts. You are negative. Has not Sachin scored centuries against Australia, South Africa or England.? He is the only player now, who scored centuries in both the formats, against every cricket playing country.

He did not score one day century only against Bangladesh.He did that also by scoring the 100th century there.

Tendulkar was not responsible for the defeat against Bangladesh today. Inefficient bowlers, insipid captaincy are the cause for the loss. Let us feel proud that we had such a noble,passionate, perseverant and humble cricketer this country had. And for generations to come nobody is going to achieve this in the whole world.

Blogger vytheeswaran said...
Dear Mr Baskaran,

Please remember that none of the earlier one day hundreds of Sachin were against Bangladesh, but against top teams. If you feel Bangladesh has a weak cricket team, than you must go to one-day records of other top batsmen, exclude their hundreds made against Bangladesh also. Even after this, Sachin will still come up tops by quite a good amount.

Everytime people criticise him, Sachin reminds them that he is still very good, taking into consideration his age

Norman Douglas said that, and he was right. So do not
worry about "what the neighbors think." Worry only
about whether you are being true to yourself.

highest truth. About all things. Including your
