A Sick Society

There has been great angst against the molestation in Delhi Bus and rightly so. In a way, this incident is the tip of the iceberg. I am personally of the opinion that this is a crime not only against women but against humankind. And women and children are exploited on […]

Dees Tekala Dharela – My First Movie Song

Sharing with you my first ever film song. The film – KRISHNAKATHCHI MEERA –  never made it to the theatres but this song won the BEST PLAYBACK SINGERS for both the singers – Ajit Ankush Parab and Yogita Pathak. The song has some grand memories for me. The year was […]

Memories of Lokmanya

The title is, I admit, a little misleading. I am generations away from having any memories of the person, Lokmanya Bal Gangadhar Tilak. But some historical figures hold sway generations after they have physically perished. And Lokmanya Bal Gangadhar Tilak definitely is one such figure. My maternal grandparents lived in […]

When Life Kills…

Water… what picture does that word create in front of your eyes? It’s such a harmless word… water… and ninety-nine times in a hundred we get a cool, refreshing feeling… even quiet and contented.

Marathi Asmita – Marathi Abhimaan Geet

In 2005, I composed and performed a prayer at the inauguration of the Mumbai Festival, “Tuzha Soorya Ugave Aamhi Prakaashaat Nhaato”, written by Mangesh Padgaonkar and sung by 63 school children. That, in itself, is good news. The bad news was that after the 7 minutes of that song, apart […]
