Wishing you all a Happy Vishu with a musical tag!

Since I’m a little pressed for time right now,I had thought of posting all my pending tags once I was back in Doha.But this is a tag which, when I read in my tagger’s post,I literally forced her to tag me as I so wanted to share my list too.As a result I couldn’t wait till I was back home.Nancy,thank you so much for being such a sweetheart and heeding to my emotional threat:P!!

When I started to do this tag I had thought I could do it in a jiffy.C’mon,how difficult is it to list down your 10 favourite songs in two languages??But as I began listing down the songs it got increasingly difficult to stick to just 10.Trust me,it is no mean task.And for someone who literally gorges on Hindi and Malayalam songs,you can imagine my predicament of choosing between a ‘Tum Pukaar lo’ and ‘Woh Shaam Kuch Ajeeb thi’ or a ‘Tujhse Naaraz nahi zindagi’ or Do Naina’ from Masoom.It reached a point where I had to resort to ‘in-pin,safety pin,in-pin out’-the eternal elimination game!

Anyhow after much editing,here I am listing my favourite songs in Hindi and Malayalam.Hope you enjoy listening to them as much as I did while linking them to you!

My 10 favourite Hindi songs:

1.Mera Kuch Saamaan- IJAAZAT
2.Aa chalke Tujhe Mai leke chaloon- DOOR GAGAN KI CHAON MEI
3.Abhi na Jao Chodkar- HUM DONO
4.Rimjhim Gire Saawan- MANZIL
5.Tum Pukar Lo-KHAMOSHI
6.Tujhse Naraaz Nahi Zindagi-MASOOM
7.Tumse Milke Aisa Laga- PARINDA
8.Mere Dil mei Tu-BHAVANA
9.Tum Itna Jo Muskuraarahe ho-ARTH
10.Tumko Dekha toh Yeh Khayal- SAATH SAATH

My 10 favourite Malayalam Songs:

1.Aayiram Kannumaayi- NOKKATHA DOORATHU KANNUM NATTU
2.Endu Paranjaalum nee endedalle vaave- ACHUVINDE AMMA
3.Kaarmukil Varnnande Chundil- NANDANAM
4.Endinu Veroru Sooryodayam- MAZHAYETHUM MUNPE
5.Kaliveedurangiyallo- DESHADANAM
6.Ennodendinee Pinakkam-KALIYATTAM
7.Oru Murai Vanthu-MANICHITRATHAAZHU
8.Ramakatha Gaanalayam-BHARATAM You need to hear the song to witness the phenomenon called KJ Yesudas!
9 Akale Akale Neelakasham- MIDUMIDUKKI
10.Azhake Nin Mizhineer- AMARAM

Tomorrow is Vishu.Amma is making all arrangements to set up ‘Vishukkani‘for Namnam.We’ll be offering the usual auspicious articles like raw rice,golden cucumbers,fresh linen,betel leaves,metal mirror,konna-poovu(Cassia Fistula),a holy text and coins in an Uruli(a bell metal vessel).
As she wakes up tomorrow morning to the sight of the vishukkani,as her day,her year starts witnessing full of brightness around her,I wish you all on behalf of my family a very Happy Vishu.May the year bring you all good health,wealth and prosperity!

  3. Deeps I don’t have to do this tag as my list of hindi songs will be exactly this 10. Mera kuch saaman is our all time fave…it has a special place in our love story…lol…not getting into that now. Abhi na jaao…is one song which doesn’t fail to lure my guy back from his laptop or tv even after 9 years..even though I sing very badly.
    Aayiram kannumaayi is one song i still sing and my north indian hubby knows the meaning coz I made him listen to it so many times. Endu paranjaalum brings tears to his eyes even though he doesn’t understand the malayalam words I did my best to translate the emotion. Oru Murai has its own funny moments in my household..in short loved ur tag and it made me nostalgic..

    Happy Vishu to you and Namnam and wishing her the best vishukkani ever…love to her
