Today I was searching for Sudha Murthy to locate her contact details, when I came across this blog post that kind of touched me. Probably many people have heard the story before, but here it is again:

Murugan Devotional song remixed…

Posted by The Visitor மேல் மார்ச் 24, 2008

கேட்ட ஞாபகம் இருக்கா? வேல் வேல் வேல் வேல்முருகா வேல்.

The original – என்னப்பனே…
Disclaimer: I am not sure if this was originally sung by KBS or Bengalooru Ramani Ammal.

Some anecdotal notes about KBS.

‘I will not leave Madras without meeting her!’ declared Lata Mangeshkar who had come to Gemini studios for a recording.

W(h)ither Social Life

Posted by The Visitor மேல் ஓகஸ்ட் 10, 2007

Itchy seems to be the blogger of the week here – not surprising – considering the prolific number of good posts that she produces. This is her second consecutive post on Kathambamaalai. Here she rants about the absence of a social life as was available in the ‘good old times’.

[…]I have not been invited for a party since a long time and neither have I called people over for dinner- something which I was doing on a monthly basis. Simply put we don’t have time or inclination or energy to do it.
[…]

I too miss the ‘good old times’. 😦

ரேடியோ நினைவுகள்

Posted by The Visitor மேல் ஜூன் 8, 2007

ரேடியோ ஆண்டு கொண்டிருந்த தன் இளமைப் பருவத்தை நினைவு கூறுகிறார் தீபா.

…….My mother always switched the radio on first thing in the morning. I don’t know if it was Madras A or Vivitha Bharti. My mother still insists the program in the radio always told her the time and made her stay organized during busy mornings of the week.

Assuaging the angst of an anxious daddy.

Dear Appa writes Ashu.

… Just because I don’t ask for you or talk to you on the phone does nt mean that I have forgotten you. I miss you loads and as Amma is telling everyone who has ears, I am not very good at long distance relationships. …

உள்ளத்தைக் கிள்ளுகிறது.

My Grandmother’s House

Posted by பிரேமலதா மேல் ஜூன் 4, 2007

Michelle takes us on tour around her Grandmother’s house.

All my childhood lies in my grandmother’s house. No matter where I am or what I remember, my mind takes me back to that house. It was, as I have said, the centre of the wheel for our entire family – aunts, uncles, cousins, neighbours and friends.. everyone met at my grandmother’s house.
