Met My God - 5

Yes, I met my idol Shreya Ghoshal again the 5th time on 23rd July! :) ..I couldn’t post the 4th part because of some reasons.Coming to the recent meeting, Shreya di had tweeted “Now- Sleep. :) 2mrw delhi! :)” ..And I couldn’t believe it because there was no news of her coming to Delhi. I was very excited but on the other hand, I was equally sad as I was thinking whether I’ll be able to meet her this time as it had been more than 9 months that we met!

I didn’t sleep that day (my twitter and FB friends must be aware of that). I finally slept at 5am and woke up at 12 noon. I was waiting for the sun to rise so that I could get in contact with Shreya’s mother to get to know anything related to her concert! I finally got in contact with her at 3 and before I asked her, she told me about the concert but she herself had not come with Shreya this time as her father was accompanying her this time! I asked her mother if I could meet her this time! She said she could try but sadly, she told ,me that Shreya had forgotten her cell phone in Mumbai and her manager’s cell phone was not reachable! But since Aunty takes me as her own son, she didn’t let me lose the hope and kept trying and finally, I got in contact with her manager. He said that I could come. I was super happy after the 3 hours sadness and praying to Guruji continuously. It was 6pm that time and I was already late. I reached the venue around 7pm and fortuntately, my Shreya didi was there at the backstage and I entered the room! She first noticed me and said , “You are looking very changed..She actually said “bilkul risht pusht lag rahe ho”..Haha! She liked my outfit a lot and complemented 2 -3 times for it. I was super happy. I asked her for a photograph but she said “Sit, there is more time” . I asked her about X Factor and she said it was going good. I also asked her about her foot. I was thinking if it’s a dream and suddenly, someone came to call her as some dancers wanted a snap with her! She told that she would be back in a few minutes. In the meanwhile, I talked to her father for the first time.He asked about my education :).He is again, so humble liker his whole family. I took his blessings and Shreya entered the room again. And then, someone came to call her for the concert and we took the snap and I was very happy to have met my Idol after 10 long months :)…And then, luckily enjoyed the whole concert by her. She started with Silsila Ye Chahat Ka and sang quite a few numbers like Wada Raha, Tumhe Jo Main Dekha, Chalo Tumko Lekat Chalein, Jaadu Hai Nasha Hai, O Bekhar, Ami Je Tomar and not to forget, she sang her recent hit Saathiya for the very first time in a concert :)..

Thank you God and Guruji for turning impossible to possible. Anyway, impossible says that I m possible ;) ..hehe ..Thank you all for your blessings and last but not the least, million thanks to Shreya’s mom and her manager for helping me out :) ..Loads of Love and Hugs :)

Short reviews of songs!

Hi guys..I am back!! Exams were not less that Internship came into scene!! I never thought I would be so busy that I would not complete my blog. I am not even abnle to sit on Twitter like before! I make sure that this busy schedule of mine ends soon!!

Again, I'll have to write short reviews of songs..All songs of Shreya recently have been super hit!!

Specially Zara Sa Ansuna tops my list this year! :)..The song has such a rich flavor.Hats off to Shreya and Deepak Pandit

1. Zara Sa Ansuna - Starting with my favorite track :).. Songs like Zara Sa Ansuna, that too in Shreya's voice is what I want everyday :)..Its my cuppa tea! The beats, the instrumentation, everything is soo unique..Its a romantic song from the Movie "Ye Faasley"..The combo of Shreya and Deepak Pandit always rocks!! The song also has another version which is almost same..The only difference is that it is a duet and has mridangam playing in the antara instead of dholak and the instrumentation is less in the later version.

2. Kitne Din Beetey - Another mindblowing song from the same movie..It has a slight sad feel to it.. It also has two versions..almost similar! Nice instrumentation! The song is my favorite as well :)

3.Poovakelu - Guess who is back? The superb combo Shreya and Ilayaraja :)..This Tamil song is a duet with Karthik.. Its a romantic song with superb syhcronization of instruments. Shreya , as usual is the star of the song! :).. The song has a carnatic feel to it and I got reminded of Konjam Konjam (again by Shreya - Ilayaraja)

4. Bavani Varugira - Another song by Shreya - Ilayaraja. Its from the Movie "Ponnar Shankar". Its sung by Shreya and chorus part. It seems like a Tamil village song. A lot of Carnatic flavor and very unique instruementation has been done by Ilayaraja..

5.Kannai Padithaen- Another melody from the same movie! Its a duet with Sreeram Parthasarthy..Its a typical Raja melody..Shreya sounds like an angel, specially in the antaras. I got reminded of Elangathu Veesudey after hearing this!

6. Mallar Villilae - Third song from the same movie! Its a duet by Shreya and another female singer Darshana! It has a carnatic music touch to it and the interludes between the antaras are simply superb. Shreya takes small alaap in the ending of both the antaras which impressed me the most. To be honest, the other female singer sounds just Ok in front of Shreya!

7. Thedi Vantha - Last song from Ponnar Shankar. Its a duet with Shreya and Kunal. Its a unique song with full of expressions and Shreya has rocked it!

ps: Sorry guys, I'll post the rest of the reviews later as I have to write a very special post "Met My God - 5" ;)
