VKailasam,
Ah, the perks?

Such as folks offering their seats to me when they see tired-me get into transit trains at the airport, offering me help when I try to cross a traffic-crazy road in India, my little grandson asking for my help to open a door with a knob he can't reach, and when I do so, hastening to warn me only to use my 'good hand' , people not dwelling on my little mistakes because they take those to be signs of aging....

...and the VIP treatment when they get to know you..
exclaiming with eyes wide open:
"So you are that Arasi of Rasikas.org-fame!
You look so young..." :D

Duh! With the wrinkles and the wrinkles in my brain holding less matter :(
Yet, who's complaining? ;)

Let's not forget Andy Warhol in all this. How many short minutes did he say that one's celebrity state lasts in our times?

Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident. Riches take wing. Only one thing endures. And that is character……which you have in plenty….


wrinkles can appear above your eye brow ..but, do not allow it to be around your heart…

I am extremely sorry that my post #379 has not been understood..
There are a couple of mails asking me to clarify "The wrinkles around the heart " and what prompted me to write like this..
Wrinkles above the brows and not wrinkles around heart is a commonly used saying..
It means that even in old age when wrinkles appear on the face , one's love and affection towards others should not diminish..

Nothing more nor less..which has to be understood in good spirit...

Wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, even on the face of a child, are a welcome sight--when they express a 'hearty' smile. So is a happy wink ;)
So, what is there to 'frown' about wrinkles? I hope, even the young among us who don't sport them as a mark of mature years do look upon them kindly...

Nivedita,
Thanks for your blog post.
Surely, you do know how happy I was that I finally meet you, having missed seeing or listening to you the past few years!
As many on the forum would agree, we feel as if we know you well--from your being among us and from your very good interviews that we have seen.
The pleasure was mine, meeting you, Viji the producer and others (your partner in life as well, patiently waiting for you in the lobby!).

Since I'm familiar with a sound studio from my childhood (taking part in children's programs and in plays and other broadcasts in my adulthood), a television studio (which I wasn't used to) did not seem very different. So, I felt at home, I guess.
I was struck by the fact that in spite of the day being Christmas day and a big holiday, you both rounded up enough crew to tape Anuradha Sridhar's interview and mine. The otherwise buzzing studio looked almost like a haunted mansion that day, with hardly any folks to be seen anywhere around. Even the News Section's floor looked deserted!

Hope you are completely recovered now. I did not know that you were ailing. Very professional you were, indeed...

Dear Arasi-ji,

Thank YOU, for making it happen! :) And yes, I'm completely alright now. :)

rshankar, Just read your post on the previous page, about my married name. My husband's name is Ajay, but I retain my maiden name Nivedita Narayanan. I don't know who Nivedita Subramaniam is! :P

Very nice remix with pleasing visuals.
Neela has sung with correct enunciations and bhavam.
It will be nice if Arasi posts the lyrics for the first...
