:) Beautiful ones..

I am hearing Hydayathim romancham for the first time..Heavy lyrics,but yes,a classic one...I love onnini shruthi tazthi..Shyama sundara pushpame...My favorite..Kanner poovinte-soulful song,i love it.. Ente kadinjool prnanayakadha..

I didn't like Janaki's song(taraka)

Interesting choices form a doctor :) You seem to be a love-filled and streesed out soul :) just kidding..

O Dunya ke rakhwale drove me crazy..Yeah,i an familiar with the song,but i don't like listening to such songs,as they make me depressed.. Yeh raat beegi beegi -ah i love it...Poocho na kaise-i am hearing it for the first time,liked it so much..

Thanks for doing :)

Thank u Nimmy for the comments.Hridayathin romancham is not a very popular song.It is a poem, the Raga is subhapanthuvaraly, a purely classical song.I like the lyrics of all the above songs except kanner poovinde. Its lyrics are not very good.Mridule is also very touching.
I am shocked to hear you have not heard poocho na kaise :) At the same time I have not heard many of the new ones you selected.

loved filled and stressed out soul..... may be true

"may be true '... :) Find happiness in what you have..Most of us are streesed bcoz we think the grass is greener on the other side-the side which we missed. My life tells me that it is not so..Every people,every incident,every thing in life has its own goodness and it is our skill or rather smartness that we find happiness in what we have..

lol..Sorry for my crap philosophy..I don't know why did I tell you think now,just like that...

Charakan said...

Nimmy,I dont think grass is greener on the other side.Saw enough life to know that it is not.I meant stressed out for time.Would like each day to be of atleast 30hrs duration.
