எதனை எதனுடனும் ஒப்பிடாமலும் - அது
உயர்ந்தது இது தாழ்ந்ததென்று தீர்ப்பளிக்காமலும்
அதனை அதுவாய் இசையை இசையாய்
உணரும் வரம்தந்தமைக்கு என் நன்றி!

Thanks and regards,

'the bright and colorful "Mudhi Mudhi Ittefaq Se," the sound of
internationally-contemporary jazz—jazz that sounds at home in any nation—painted in colorful strokes behind a female vocalist who chases its light melody the way that a kitten chases a kite tail'

"Kerlavarma Pazhassiraja with all the power and majesty of traditional Indian strings, drums, chants, and rhythms, and ends in a percussion thunderstorm that leaves the listener feeling wrung out and dripping wet."

Enjoy reading and please share with your friends, colleagues, family and everyone else!
