Saarang Day 2 was great..
The morning events passed by without much notice.. (Sadly.. no participation.) I watched the Light Music Solo event for some time.. My friend Kumar was participating and sang the song “Ae Ajnabee” from Dil Se. One girl sang “Suttum Vizhi Chudar thaan.. Kannamma..” from Kandukondaen.. that was brilliant. Even Kumar appreciated it. Then I visited the Classical Music Instrumental.. Most of them played the Violin.. Then ofcourse “Jam”.. it was fun at the beginning but became boring later on.. it’s called Jam… but junta don’t allow others to talk even for 10s continuously.. Then I went to watch the extempore finals in the evening.. I still can’t stop laughing..
But the Shankar Ehsaan Loy show more than made up for all these.. It was partying all the way.. I still feel dizzy an hour after the show.. We hardly sat on the ground.. He made us rock till the end.. Mahalakshmi Iyer dazzled us (atleast me) with her voice.. Amazing.. the way she took her voice to very high levels.. Shrinivas came in for a cameo.. Overall as I said.. I still feel dizzy..

I was very much against Saarang at the same time last year.. But now my views seem to have changed quite a bit.. Of course I wouldn’t spend all my time.. arrange stuff and get Saarang going. (shame on me to say this staying in IIT Madras) Instead this year I have decided to enjoy it just as any guy with a 4 day holiday break.. Now that is great isn’t it..

The first day in Saarang..

  • I participated in Creative writing thanks to Kumar
  • I visited debate prelims.. nothing much.. just saw the topics..
  • Stayed in the Classical Music Vocal Solo area for the rest of the time.. Listened to many of my own friends for the first time.. My already existing interest (or rather wish I should say) in learning the Mirudangam was strengthened..
  • Chalked out the plan for the next couple of days.. (Photography workshop esp..)
