Good Morning!

Hey All! Good Morning!

Having had to read quite a few times about me being bored, I guess it would be a good change for you to read that it has been more than a week since my boredom went away! So how did I beat the boredom? All I did was a little introspection/retrospection/whatever and before I knew it, I was out of boredom! Rather, boredom was out of me. πŸ˜›

As I woke up to a pleasant weather today morning, unlike how this sort of a weather usually makes me feel lazy, I was feeling so fresh and I got ready to work humming kaNgaL iraNDaal all the time. πŸ˜€ Reaching the bus stop and exchanging Hi with all my friends there, we started talking about how, many of them would have kept the windows closed making the bus so stuffy – every time the weather is nice after rains, most of them keep the windows closed, not letting us enjoy the weather πŸ™ – and how it would be all the more difficult to travel in the bus if it happened to be crowded too.

As I got into the bus fearing the worst, surprise of surprises, not even half the bus was full! :O And I got a window seat! Yay! πŸ™‚ The weather seemed so perfect to listen to songs. But thanks to some loose connection, sound comes only from the left earphone in the headset of my mobile and if I want the sound to come from both the earphones, I have to keep holding the wire of the right earphone in a particular position. 😐 But nothing was going to stop me from listening to songs today and I started listening to the songs happily, all the while struggling to hold the wire in the same position. 😐

Perfectly in sync with the weather and my mood was the first song, aptly titled β€˜Bliss Factor’ (Guitar Prasanna’s). Ananda Bhairavi + Sahana on the guitar – what more can you ask for? Being busy concentrating on holding that wire in the correct position, it wasn’t until after a few minutes after getting into the bus that I turned to look at the sky and I was greeted with the sight of strips of different shades of blue on the sky. πŸ˜€ Nice weather + beautiful sky + Bliss Factor = Bliss Max! πŸ˜‰

After Bliss Factor, making it Bliss2 πŸ˜› was a set of Rahman’s songs.

Spirit of Unity Concert title music – Listening to it today, I got reminded of this post of mine where I first wrote about it in my blog. Incidentally, that post was the first-ever post that I wrote on what Rahman’s music means to me. πŸ™‚

Pacchadanamey (Telugu version of Pacchai nirame) – Can anyone ever have enough of raving about this song? πŸ˜‰

Thee Thee, Taxi Taxi, Dol Dol – Even if I had been feeling sleepy, these are songs that would have got me out of the sleepiness instantly. If these songs don’t get you charged up, tell me what else will?

Ishq Ada (Female version) – Parul sounds awesome in this! I really wish she gets to sing lot more songs.

Hey Goodbye naNba – For the past few months, this one has been my most favourite song. Expect a separate post on it soon.

Just as this song ended, the bus reached office and for once, I wished my office had been a bit far away. πŸ˜›

    Yes πŸ™ I too was shocked when I came to know about the blasts.

    I know. I was already confused between whether to listen to Ada or JTYJN. Now with the release of Sakkarakatti, it has been all the more difficult to choose what to listen! πŸ˜‰ And when I remember that some more albums of his are going to release this year, phew! πŸ™‚

    I have already read ‘Doctors’ 2-3 times before and I have read some parts in that book God-knows-how-many-times! πŸ™‚ It is my favourite book and I like it more than ‘Love Story’. Thesis on ‘Doctors’? Sounds interesting! I would love to do a thesis on this one too! πŸ™‚ πŸ˜›

    πŸ™ Parul is the name of the singer who sang it
