Swarnalatha, a life too short.

I sometimes wonder who will think of me after I die even if I were to live to a 100. Swarnalatha's was a unique voice. I still cannot forget her "Maalayil Yaaro" from the movie Kshathriyan and other innumerable hits she sang in Tamil. The song "Kunnathe Kunnaykum" sung by Chithra for the move Pazhassi Raja recently is very similar to "Maalayil Yaaro" sung by Swarnalatha. The composer of both the songs is Illayaraja.

Swarnalatha's voice will be missed. May her soul rest in peace.

Singers to watch out for this ISS Season 5

No matter how hard I try to avoid Idea Star Singer, Ranjini and all the crap associated with Idea Star Singer, performances such as this one from Mridula draw me to the T.V.

The very pleasing Mridula impressed by opening this season with "Kalyana Sounanthigam". She gave another very impressive performance singing "Konjum Nilavu" too but her song two days ago, the classic "Innenikku Pottu kuthaan" was flawless.

Here it is.

Then there is the more-Tamil-speaking Kalpana from Chennai. One of her performances was worth watching as it resemebled Usha Uthup's style so very closely. And lastly Neethi, who sang with abandon in a recent performance. Somehow I am not able to find their videos though. When they are on YouTube I'll link to them.

My blog on PC maintenance goes live

Trying to document my own trouble shooting and maintenance procedures with my PC's I thought it would be a nice thing to share that information to my readers.

So if you have a problem that is similar to what I have faced (chances are that you have) you may read the solutions from my posts and help yourselves.

This time I went the WordPress way.

The blog is still a baby. More posts, links to appear very soon.
