You did it your way...

Michael Jackson, the world's most legendary Pop Singer has departed yesterday (Thursday). Never I have thought that he would leave so soon.Despite the demise, I am still proud that his name, songs and even his dance will always hold the legacy of Pop King amongst others heart. Looking back at the moments when I used to listen to his songs with my dad; my dad is an avid fan of MJ, it is sad to see him no more. With this, I would like to dedicate this posting to him as an obeisance towards him.
I have a few videos down here,as a tribute to him; they are my fav tracks too. Even though he is gone, his name would still be in praise, just like how Shakespeare is... MJ you are loved, and still will be loved...may you rest in peace..Om Shanti...

Farrah fawcet, the blonde beauty has also fade away due to anal cancer. I recently came across her when I was doing a write up. I got to know that she was acting in the earlier version of "Charlie's Angels" way back in the 70's.Her story too, has moved me when she recorded the last moment of her life which was initially catered for her family only, but at last she made it public so that others would know how it is to experience it, and also so that people will value their life more. I am proud that she made a documentary on herself to inspire others.

With this I am hoping that the 2 souls will attain peace & thanks to them for all the inspiration given.

The Gift known as Appa...

One of the most momentous lesson I have learnt in my life was when my father departured. Moving moments for most of us, would bring in the life changing effect, and so it did in my life...Thus, this posting is a dedication to my father on behalf of Father's Day..

My father exhaled his last breath in a room known as the ICU in the state of coma and on the most unforgettable date in my life, September the 10th year 1999. My father has been struggling with an uninvited guest that takes pleasure in his body till it damages his kidneys. Yes, it is the end stage renal failure (as claimed by the doctor) that took my father away from me. I was 14 at those time; young at age & young to realise that my father is in critical state.

Last words.......
At the last moments of my father, before the state of coma brings him to another world that only god knows, my father has given me & my other siblings some last advice & also request which now it turns out to be my sole responsibility to hold on to it. To look back, those time when he told me these, I took his words for granted. But now, to ponder back, I knew what he actually meant...(There's where the great lesson flows in)

The intense pain is also there, when you never had the chance to talk to the person,kiss him a goodbye or at least see him for the last time before he leaves.The painful moment captured: I was brought into the ICU room and saw my father on the bed,breathless with his eyes closed and his body was cold like an ice.
Also remembered what my grandpa told me before they brought me to the room,"Mala,be strong" once after I heard that heart breaking statement, I still crossed my fingers, maximumly; hoping my father is still breathing, with the fact that he still has 4 to 5 minutes to survive(the brain still functions) when he stops breathing, but the bright side that I was looking for has dimmed into the darker side.
I managed to get through that heart ripping moment, but my poor mom,really had the toughest time ever in her whole life; of losing her other half...

To ponder back the moment of the departure, I still get the pain in the heart yet the scar of losing my father is still healing...So wherever I go, I will be touched if I get to see little kids with their fathers having fun time together. At the same time my responsibility as a daughter never cease off coz in my heart I have a comfort zone for my beloved mother; as a result of losing my father, I appreciate her more. She's my other half,my life..

Some relationship when taken in granted will reciprocate great heart pain & guiltiness. I went through& felt both, and now there's no use of regretting; my father is not going to come back though, but I know he's there, just right there, where my mother is. He left us his greatest memory; our mother with us. And now it is all about love , and yes, no regrets but appreciation instead.

**The picture up here, I snapped it when I went for a Blogger's Karnival in PJ lately.
Kinda cute seeing the girl curling up on her dad, Haha! definitely it reminded to my dad &
too (guess the same for you too)

I am doing this posting with the hope that, in future, my kids (rough guess) would read this posting & get to see my view on my dad, hence they do the same to their dad too. Will be more glad if they too,blog about their 'appa' too. It's time to share & care LOVE. Spread the love around & blessed with PEACE.


Korea: Arirang...

had a MEMORABLE encounter today with what I came across ages ago; those time of being a kid, in a music class but not so sure of which level-Standard 3 @ 4

It was when I learnt Arirang, a Korean folk song
My teacher taught me the song with a recorder.
Also remembered those time when I sang the song(in English translation)and it goes like:
Arirang, arirang, Ariyayo.......(proceeds)
Those time i know this song is actually a kind of sad love song.
But now, being grown up, I understand the song better (experience based)
The lover, longing for her heartthrob who is on a long journey. She wishes him to get sore feet so that the lover will be back to her, from the long journey.
I loved this song from the moment I hold the musical notes..
Ok,for this posting,let's hear the various version of the song, in different instruments.







*Arirang-Dance on Ice


I am so crazy of this song!!
Hope all the videos above entertained you
and hope the lovers get together again
Hope the same for all of us too; to be happy & peaceful
and best of all, to be gifted.. the love of our life..till the end of our infinity & beyond


My loves.......... past & present

Music has always been one of my great soulmate; it heals my soul and I live with it all my life..
But what does it gotta do with my love? moreover,of the past and of the present?
Here you go.. the answers are all here, just here :)

The Past

1 day I happen to hear this one particular track titled 'New Kafi' from the album 'Secret of the Wind', from that moment, I was so hooked on this 'awesome man', who's turns out to be the creator of the track. The man is really good at sitar & flute, even saxophone also!
I have also collected other tracks of his, a collection of his albums (not all-still collecting), indeed. When I got to know about 'him', I was shocked, he is not an Indian, he is a Germany! Wow! Kudos to him!Prem Joshua (Multi-Instrumentalist, Singer, Composer, Flautist, Sitarist)
*Origin : German
*Instruments: flute (age 5) , saxophone
*travelled to India at the age of 18 to study the indigenous folk music
*Joshua learnt Sitar from Ustad Usman Khan,India's finest Sitar teacher (thank God I have met him also @ TFA) and enlightened by Osho (read about him)
*why do I like him so much?
he blends the East and the West music genre, can see that he really experimented various forms of music. Yet the way he collaborates the jazz and classical beat (Hindustani) is simply stunning. Then he came in with lounge & trance ,bali, arabic and other beats.
*His music has immensely contributed to the Asian underground and fusion scene.
*Previously, when I was in varsity, most of my dance performance comes together with the beat of his beautiful tracks. One day I am hoping to meet this amazing man.
* His music is one of my love, from the past, since it has been quite long I was hooked on it..

The Present

Few weeks back when as I was surfing, I came across this man, hmm..well he actually collaborated with Prem Joshua (the person mentioned above), via a track,remixed 'Secret Place' from the album 'Dakini Lounge'
The track is in the video,below (Give it an ear)

I have to admit this as well, this cute tabla playing bearded fella is also a sexy dude, seriously..not only through looks but also thru his talent..
His remixed track 'Beautiful' from the album 'Broken English' enchanted me, and it turns out to be most of his energetic tracks suits for contemporary dance!

Karsh Kale (Producer, Composer, Tabla Player, DJ, Drummer, Singer/Songwriter, Remix Artist)
* Origin: Stony Brook,New York
* Well known for melding electronic club music of his American upcoming
* He has collaborated with renowned artists such as the Madras Cinematic Orchestra and tabla masters, such as Zakir Hussain
* He often creates a unique blend of Indian percussion with techno music and drum & bass.
One of his track is down here... :)

Based on all this, I am so love struck with the presence of this 2 guys, Prem & Karsh,hope to get to know the others too (I have some newbies in my list)

Currently I am so so enchanted by Karsh, that most of the time, I ended up dancing in the room and as for Prem, I use his tracks to do yoga, daily in the morning. My life is so refreshed and enticed by them.... Therefore I highly recommend these dosage for those who wants to get in trance mystically..just like in love...Om Shanti...
