Song: Sakthi Kodu(Tamil); Movie: Baba(2002)

And so it happened...My sis-in-law had a safe delivery and our family is blessed with a baby girl.
As per my earlier post, here is my first song. The song is from a Tamil movie Baba, starring Rajnikanth and Music by A.R.Rahman.

Why this song as the first one??
The song has all the ingredients of an entry song (applicable to both me and my niece here). It isnt a devotional song; but the picturisation in the movie is such. It shows the transformation of an athiest into a devotee in the movie. Moreover, the lyrics has a man asking for strength from the Almighty to reform the people around him and calls the Almighty his Mother, his Father, the Life and the Truth. I coud not ask for a better song to enter with my voice in V-lokam !

To listen in a better way :

  • Please wait till the entire song streams.
  • Try using a headset/earphone for the overall sound clarity.

Hey, Vimal, I promise to listen to your songs as soon as I get home. Somehow, even with audio drivers in place, there is no audio on my system and office guys are not able to resolve it. I will let you know my feedback then!

vimmuuu said...

@ reets
Thanks for the encouragement.

Thanks rakesh.Sure send in your requests and I will see if I cud create a karoake first and do justice to the song wid my voice.

No probs.Take your time.But I doubt ur gonna like it.cuz I dont know if you wud listen to regional songs.Its true that music has no boundaries, but very few people actually accept that fact.Anyway, keep visiting every week, and next wednesday,im uploading a hindi one.Thanks again blogmate!

Thanks man.How I wish I could sing 'Mast'? I tried editing the song,unfortunately could not. In case you find the karaoke version of it, pls send it across.

Thanks Madhu. and thanks also for listening to the whole song : )
My malayalam accent is mixed with Tamil only when I speak. So dont be so glad.hehehe.Next time, I speak, you can still hear me speak in the mixed language.

Thanks again Reets.This actually means you have been having repeated listenings. Thanks a lot. Hope to keep you guys glad always.

Keep the good work..I read in uer blog that u haven’t taken any music lesson..just a suggestion..its not late either u can go for music lesson now (if time permits) and give uer vocal cord a bit more taming..But anyways excellent..From now on I would be regular visitor to uer blog ..to hear to more of uer songs :)!! Oh yes..if I find any Karoke sites from which u can download music, I’ll let u know..I don't sing at all..have horrible voice..but I just luv music..:), hence couldn't stop myself writting a note for u.
All the best..Take care

vimmuuu said...


Thanks a lot for all the encouragement. Will try doing better work all the time. Btw, I had heard about you from ettan during his college days and when I saw ur name here in the blog, for a minute there, I thought it was my sis-in-law who shares the same name as yours. and yes, now since everyones putting this up, I am thinking of taking up the music lessons. Again, like you said, let time permit. Thanks again!
