A guy fighting his ways through the jigsaw puzzle of life. Someone who likes songs which have a nice message to convey. This space is an attempt to share such songs with everyone. He hopes that people would be reminded of these gems and this space would serve as an easy access point for all good songs, he also hopes to kindle interest among our new generation to look at these songs with a fresh perspective and hopefully understand them better. For people who do not know Tamil, well its a nice way to learn it through songs ;).
Knowingly or unknowingly Tamil has been with me through out my life. I am happy that I was exposed to reading, writing and speaking in Tamil, for it is playing a major role in shaping me in how I think and communicate. I have always been a distant admirer till recently, when Suchee with his charm pulled me into his work. I have been enjoying tamil music and kavidais all this while. Now I have a chance to look further deep into it. I will try to do my best to contribute my bit to support my language that has helped me identify myself.
A blogger who started translating, to connect with her English audience better, soon realised that, though people are divided by many boundaries, music, the emotions it evoke, lyrics and the feel of them are received and appreciated in the same way all over. And also realised that, When you are in love, you can’t hide it for long. Thus, started the journey of translating the song lyrics. A tiny step towards, opening up the oyster, having the precious and treasured tamil pearls to a wider audience.

Sanjay is passionate about identity based assertion, which has turned out to be a dirty word in a less diverse media. As part of that philosophy, he feels literary works needs to translated into other languages, viz., English to spread the richness of Indian languages. The languages he chose was Malayalam and Tamil, the former being his mother tongue and the latter adopted mother tongue due to his over three decades stay in Chennai.
