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

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!
