Kalpana- Tu Hai mera Prem Devta

Years ago, when I was still in junior school, we went on a trip to a beach close by called Balachadi.

Somewhere on this fine sand, our music teacher sat with a tabla, and our science teacher sat with a harmonium.  They sang this awesome song for us.

The memory of that day lingers in my mind to this day, and makes this song extra special for me.

  1. Wow!!!!! i love your new layout, its utterly frabjous

  2. Thanks bd :) I looked high and low for it .. something pink with bees..hehe

  3. Lovely song. I hadn't known about this one until a friend introduced me to it, I think when I did my post on the songs of Manna Dey. It is certainly a song I'd have liked sung for me on a serene beach!

  4. Dustedoff, thanks. I will look for your post, I love Manna Dey.

  5. Nice! I could almost picture it myself!

  6. That's a nice story, Avdi. But who did you get to see dance to this? :)

    I discovered this song through my Travancore Sisters mania, but it did give me a new appreciation of Manna Dey also (and a greater appreciation of O.P. Nayyar).

    By the way, "me too" re. Bollywooddeewana's comment on your new layout. I feel a little confused by the listing of two variations for your name, but I am assuming that here, I should address you as Avdi. :)

  7. Richard :)

    Thanks. No Padmini/Ragini danced, alas.

    I was also surprised to learn that the music for this fine classical song was by OP Nayyar, who was more famous for 'tick tock' songs picturised on a horseback.

    My nickname was avdi, when I was little girl, some of my cousins still call me that. I don't mind being called either ava or avdi. :)

  8. wow.. thats wonderful feeling.
