sometimes the kid inside me gets the better of me , and i cannot help it.

just last week i watched the movie How green was my valley-so many years after reading that nostalgia classic.

For somebody just touching that halfway mark of 50 , the road ahead looks as exciting as the road covered,
and so thoughts flow !!

Coolji,
No hurry, but I would like to hear some of Jitendra Abhisheki's music. I have heard him in concert a few times in the 80s and was really taken by the inward looking quality of his music. No fireworks, no gimmicks--just soulful rendering...
Thanks!

Abhisheki !
Ah ! I like to think of him as the Kalyanraman of Hindusthani Music..
Both flowered a bit too early and got lost in the crowd.And died early too ..

There is something in their music that haunts you for ever.

The two tracks of Abhisheki are wonderful. Have not listened to the tarana yet.

Can someone throw some light on the rag Suha.

I have a special regard for Abhisheki's music. Glad you are enjoying Coolji's offerings. The tarAna is lovely and it brought to my mind the 'nalanthAnA?' scene from TillAna MohanAmbAL!

Coolji,
You are kind, indeed. That mArwA! My next request, after a reasonable interval of course, was going to be mArwA! I was going to ask for Gangubai's. But Abhisheki too does justice to the raga, no doubt...

I will tell more about Suha , the only way I can-with anecdotes.

Gangubai , recalls , in an interview about a nice incident.

Her Guru, Sawai Gandharv , had not taught her this raga for many years , inspite of many requests.
Why do you want to learn this ? he qould query and leave it at that.

Once, he had been away from Hubli for a long duration and Gangubai seized a chance to sing this raga for AIR Bombay -she had taught herself, obviously.
But it so happened that her Guru had cut his visit short and was already at Pune when this was broadcast.
And as Gangubais train from Bombay to Hubli steamed into Pune Station , she was horrified to see him getting into the same compartment .He was also travelling back to Hubli.
No sooner as they had settled down , he proceeded to give her a verbal hiding and taught her this raga all the way back to Hubli , right there in the compartment .

no need to hold back your requests.they are a pleasure.
the last time a member wanted to repay me for a gangubai track , he rang me up , alerting me that there was a film festival of documentaries at Sathyam Cinemas and he was waiting there , with a Pass for me.
These favours have a way of coming back to me , always.
I entered the cinema hall just in time to catch gangubai , suppressing her tears , when reminded of her daughters passing away ( No parent should see their offspring pass way in front of their own eyes - it is an indescribable pain -she was lamenting ).
But , gritty lady that she is, she came back with a smile , all in a mtter of seconds.
She started telling a story of how she had stayed with friends at delhi for a live broadcast at Delhi and upon returning home late in the night , she asked the youngest member how he liked her music , and pat came the boys reply
Hey ! No they changed the program i guess.I was in a friends place.
Some other male singer was singing , but it was good !!:D:D
No wonder , she came back after a Cancer surgery , in her throat , and gave a concert at belgaum last year , at the age of 90.

Cji, what a great anecdote for that powerful rendition. I wish there is someway to associate or attach your anecdotes with the clip so that they are never separated as time passes. For now, the mental association will suffice. :happy:

Associating the anecdote with the rendition is easy. If you are using windows XP, go to 'properties/summary/advanced/lyrics' of the MP3 file - the column will save up to 2000 charecters. It can contain an entire karnatak kriti. It is easier in Hindustani - just copy the entire anecdote and paste it to lyrics. If you so wish write the words 'see lyrics' in comments column. When the file is uploaded, these entries remain intact.

Without Xp
I used to store the word doc as well as the clip in the same CD with a hyperlink to the Clip available on the word doc.

murthyhmg, that is a cool idea. And it satisfies the purpose nicely. If lyrics are available, I can add it there as well, space permitting. The text should move with the file even when transferred to portable devices.

As you suggested, I also added 'see lyrics for anecodotes'. In the folder view, I added the 'comments' column, so the comment is displayed in place along with the file name and other properties.

Also, since these are mp3 tags, for platforms that do not support tag editing, one can always use a separate mp3 tag editing program. In fact, there is a 'user text' field in ID3 V2 tags which can be used for such anecdotes if we want to store both lyrics and anecdotes. I do not see a way XP allows entering the 'user text'.

Thanks very much.

this is indeed a great idea.
For ipod users lyrics can be added to theTitle under advanced. It will flash on the screen while playing the song.:cool::cool:

Yes. That reminds me, the iTunes program can be used for editing ID3 tags. Even itunes does not provide a editable 'User Text' field. But the 'Lyrics' field is there.

One more important suggestion. Don't forget to add - Coolkarni at the end to all those anecdotes provided by him.

Mr. Kulkarni posted a piece of Fateh Ali Khan of Pakistan. unfortunately it is deleted now. I downloaded Megh and Bhupali of the singer from sarangi.info - a Pakistan site. If anyone wants i can upload it. Nice singing.

just provide the links that will help members to visit those sites and download as per rules existing there.
It will avoid you the worries associated with uploading ..

Kulkarni Sa'ab,
Just saw this: I love it...he is saying so much, and in such chaste language, I do not think I can do justice to the translation...suffice it to say, he makes a VERY romantic statement..
