Remembering R D Burman

Today is the day when a legend was born. He started creating magic through his tunes right from the age of 9. Professional circuit call him Rahul Dev Burman, Friends call him Pancham and fans call him BOSS.

I still remember the day when my cousin (Prabhakar) gave all his collection of cassettes to me & my brother. We were happy to see so many audio cassettes and observed one thing in unique. Music director for all those movies was R.D. Burman. It was at that point I started listening to his music and fell in love with his magic.

Whether it is Romantic Song “Raat Kali” or Sexy Cabaret number “Piya Tu ab tho Aaja” or Hippie song “Dum Maro Dum”, Pancham was versatile and comfortable with all kinds of music genres available during his era. Today I wish he was still alive and give more and more hits to the world. There are many people around the world who can listen to his music for hours and enjoy every minute of it.

Happy Birthday BOSS.

Movie Mania

This weekend was one of those weekends where I was very relaxed without any work and tension. Its been a while that I had seen any movies and I decided I should make most of this weekend.

I started off on Friday by watching the movie X-Men First Class. It was a nice movie as the other movies in the series. Came home late night and asked Swetha if she would watch X-Men. As she hasn’t seen the movie earlier she accepted my offer and that’s when the movie mania started. Starting there I have seen below 14 movies this weekend.

X-Men First Class
Final Season
Alice in Wonderland
Chalo Dilli
Tanu Weds Manu
Percy Jackson & The Lightning thief
Scott Pilgrim vs The World
Sexy Beast

I also played 4 hours of badminton. This weekend it was really competitive and hope that continues. After this wonderful weekend, till date my week is going on great and hope this month goes the same way :).

– Raghav (my elder bro) came to Singapore with his friends and stayed at my place. Even though the stay was just for the weekend, we had a great time.

– Hectic Project work getting on to my nerves. I have been kind of leading a project taking care of all the technical aspects. There have been some goof ups from my side and in return gifted me Late night working

– Nagaraj’s family was again in Singapore after almost a year. This time even though we did not travel anywhere we were quite busy in Singapore.

– I have been playing Regular cricket matches and attending practice sessions. I have been following all the IPL matches, even though they were less interesting this time.

– The new craze in town for our group is badminton. We have been playing badminton every weekend without fail and we are enjoying it.

– There is one surprise, I haven’t seen enough movies in last 2 months. I hardly saw any new movies as these activities kept me quite busy.
– Because of my bro, Nag’s family & birthdays almost all the weekends have turned to party nights.

– This summer, we have done lot of activities right from bowling, pool, wake boarding to ice skating.

– Oops last but not the least Swetha’s resigned. She is happy to leave the organisation and all those shifts which took a toll of her health.
