Wish someone share their memories of the singer of yesteryears.

Was part of the glorious group - Ilayaraja / SPB / Malaysia / SJ / PS / KJY / SPS ./Jayachandran....

She had done some great hit songs ...... Her success story was directly related to IR's glorious late 70s and 80s...

Can somebody share their memories on this pls.

My favourite song of Jency ....................

Geetha Sangeetha - along with Jayachandran

Meenkodi theril manmadha raajan

Dear Balaji.....

Whenever I hear a song of Jency, suddenly my mind will travel to the period of 1978-85, which was the peak period of that 'melody princess' (because many 'melody queens' like PS,SJ,VJ are here).

She sung a few, but all are hits and memorable. First I heared her song "Idhayam poguthey...enaiye pirindhey" in Puthiya Vaarpugal(I dont know whether she sung before that). In the very first song itself "en idhayam enai pirindhu" Jency yidam poi vittathu. Such a wonerful and different voice.

Then she continued her career with succesful journey of Ilaiyaraja, with the songs "Iru paravaigal malai muzhuvathum inge..inge parandhana" and "aayiram malargale malarungal"...in Niram Maaraatha Pookkal.

As per my knowledge the one and only Music Director she worked was Ilaiyaraja only. (Is there any other MD, with whom Jency worked...??, if any pl. tell. But I hope nobody).

My big sarrow is, why Ilaiyaraja dropped her in half way, even he is in peak always.

There was a rumour that Ilaiyaraja reduced Jency's singing oppertunities when he introduced S.P.Shailaja to the field in 'Ponnu oorukku pudhusu' (Solaikuyiley....kaalai kadhirye...)

Is that news true or false....??. Balaji, did you hear anything about that..??

Dear Sharadhajii,

On IR .. not using Jency later .. probably Mr. Manisekaran can throw some light on this....

Jency had also given hits for Shankar Ganesh....

Paniyum neeyay malarum naanay paruva raagam paaduvom ...

with SPB.. it was a big hit those day.s

Apart from that .. I dont remember JEncy singing for others.


I wish more postings come out from senior hubbers who were part of glorious late 70s

Deiveega raagam .... song from Ullasa paravaigal...

Another great song of Jency

7th August 2005, 04:47 PM
Dear Balaji....

That song "Dheiveega Raagam" is very very rarely telecast in TV channels. We all know, TV channel people will not telecast good and rare songs. But we always see that song because it is in the CD of Deepa hits. (You know well, why Deepa cd is in our home :P :P ) But I will watch it for Jency only.

Recently when she attended as a judge for Jaya TV's 'Raaga Maaliga' programme, that is the first time I saw her face, till then I know her voice only. I surprised "Oh.. she is my favourite Jency".

She sung the song "Melam kotta neram varum poonkodiye"... in the movie 'Lakshmi' for Sreedevi, with same voice without any change. The anchor Vijay Adhiraj also wondered and asked her 'still you are having the same voice, why you are hiding yourself in shadow, without continuing your career as a singer?'. Till the end of the programme, she did not answered for that question. (May be if she answered, many matters may come out for, why she is not singing).

Another famous number from Jency for Sreedevi is "En vaaniley orey vennila" from Johny. Oh what a song.

S.Balaji
7th August 2005, 04:54 PM
Dear Sharadhajii,

When you mentioned about Melam kotta neram varum poonguilay...

That song will look as if Sridevi was songing..... by IR the great.

I wonder why Jency is not being considered as even today her voice is intact !!

The youth in the voice is still there. Her style can easily fit into Jothika or Simran

S.Balaji
7th August 2005, 04:56 PM
Another lovely song of Jency....

In Ilamai kolam.....

With Malaysia Vasu..


NEE ILAATHA POTHU ENGUM NENJAM SOLLAATHA KADHAI NOORU.

Here Jency will step in the second phrase and will add flavour to the song... Lovely one... ofcourse it was from IR only

My favourites of Jency are songs from Johny & Vizhiyil vizhunthu :)

Supposedly Jency happens to be my friend's family friend and he brought her and her hubby to my home in 1992 when I was in hostel... Missed meeting her and haven't had the chance to meet her since :(

Supposedly she was doing stage shows then!

My mom still talks about her songs and her visit home sometimes!

Nice to hear about that. Are you getting Jaya tv there ?? There was a music programme sometime back wherein she was the judge and the same golden old voice was still intact.....

I understand Jency has settled down in Kerala.....

Life goes on..............

I consider myself fortunate to be part of Jency era where I could hear her songs coming along with the glorious days of IR.

When I was going through another thread, Mr. Ramki mentioned about the songs of 'Engeyo ketta kural' and he mentioned about the song
"Aaththoram kaaththaada oru paattu ketkuthu" very lovely song of Jency, (Radha playing with her friends in a pond), which is another hit.

(Whenever you hear a song of Jency, definitely it will be a hit songs only, because all of her songs are hits, same like P.B.Srinivas If you hear a song of PBS, it will be a hit one. He never give an unhit song. Our Jency's songs also like that).

There is a similar song in Prabhu's "Arvadai Naal" with same situation "Solai kurutholai kaathula aaduthu...kannanai theduthu" ...Rasi playing with her friends. Is it by SJ or SPS or Chitra..??.

Everytime when I hear this song from Aruvadai naal, my mind will go to 'Aathoram kaathaada' song in EKK.

[tscii:e84c6af0e9]Dear All,

Sharing with you about Jency which I took it from one of the professional hubbers :


In an arena where mere survival demands a Herculean effort, to shrug off a promising career nonchalantly, and to forgo a future of fame and fortune without even a tinge of regret is simply unimaginable. Jency did just that. She bid a cheerful adieu to tfm and settled to a contended life of marital bliss, raising two children over the years, while working as a music teacher in a small Government school in an obscure Kerala hamlet.

In a career that lasted a mere 4-5 years, the number of chart-toppers that Jency sang is something remarkable. Even while retaining S.Janaki as his mainstay, IR was experimenting with various young singers in those years- Sasirekha, Shailaja, Sujatha and Uma Ramanan, to name a few. Jency was among his pet protégés. And like a wishful windfall, many of IR’s exquisite compositions came her way.

A brief look at Jency’s songs:

1978:

1. vaanathu poongkiLi- thiripurasundari-with SJ- IR
2. adipeNNE- muLLum malarum- IR
3. alankara ponoonjalE - sonnathu nee thaana-with MV- IR (only humming by Jency)
4. en uyir nee thaanE- priya-with KJY- IR
5. aada chonnarE- vattathukkuL sathuram- IR

1979:

6. thamthana namthana- pudhiya vaarppugaL-with B Vasantha- IR
7. idhayam pOguthE- pudhiya vaarppugaL- IR
8. thOttam koNda rasavE- pagalil Or iravu-with IR- IR
9. mayilE mayilE- kadavuL amaitha mEdai-with SPB-IR
10. geetha sangeetha- anbE sangeetha-with JC- IR
11. iru paRavaigaL - niRam maaRaatha pookaL- IR
12. aayiram malargaLE- niRam maaRatha pookaL-with MV& SPS- IR
13. gnyaan gnyaan paadanam- poonthaLir- IR
14. hey masthana- azhagE unnai aaradhikkiREn-with SPB,VJ,JC- IR
15. akka oru rajaathi- mugathil mugam paarkalaam-with JC- IR

1980:

16. meen kodi thEril- karumbuvil- IR
17. deiveega raagam- ullasa paRavaigaL- IR
18. theertha karaithanilE- thaippongal- IR
19. en vaanilE - johny- IR
20. naan unnai thirumba thirumba- ellaam un kairasi-IR
21. kaathaadu aasai koothaaduthu- karadi-with MC Balu- GA?

1981:

22. vaadi en kappakkizhangE- alaigaL Oivathillai-with GA,IR- IR
23. kaadhal Oviyam- alaigaL Oivathillai - with IR- IR
24. poo malarndhida -tik tik tik- with KJY- IR
25. paniyum naanE malarum neeyE - panimalar- with SPB- SG

1982:

26. en gaanam indRu arangERum- eera vizhi kaaviyangaL-with IR- IR
27. kalyaNam ennai mudikka - metti-with Rajesh,Radhika- IR
28. poothu nikkuthu kaadu- echchil iravugaL- with MV- IR
29. aaththOram kaathaada - engEyO kEtta kural- IR

There is a song 'poochoodi pottum vechu' from the unreleased film ponni, MD-GA.

Much has been said about Jency’s voice, and some more, about her pronunciation. But it is an undisputable fact that many of her songs were (or for that matter, still are) oft-listened favourites. And it is a fact too that she was immensely popular in her time. I remember the days when her songs were aired on listeners’ requests repeatedly. And many of thamizh chEvai iRaNdu listeners used to enquire eagerly about Jency, the person behind the voice. But Jency preferred to remain an elusive enigma, shying from publicity. I saw a picture of hers for the first time a year back in a magazine interview, where she spoke about her career, expressing her gratitude to IR.

And for me, Jency will always remain an integral part of cherished remembrances …my earliest memories of radio and becoming smitten with tfm are inter-linked with reminiscences of Jency, among others. Those were the days when Jency was riding an incredible high and her hits were hard to miss. [/tscii:e84c6af0e9]

Dear Balaji....

Good, you have collected Jency's songs year by year and I surprised she sung this much songs.

But one song, which I mentioned in my second post (Melam Kotta Neram varum poonkodiye- from Laxmi) is missing in the list.

I appreciate your memory power about 'Dheiveega Raagam' song.

Yes ,, I missed out.....melam kotta neram varum...

I am trying to get the maximum info on Jency the princess of 70s and do my best to make this thread worthwile.

My friends are all helping me in this connection and my thanks to all of them....

8th August 2005, 04:48 PM
Hi Balaji !

I think "MeLam kotta neram varum" is by B.Sasirekha and not by Jency. Please check it out.

and also.. the song from Ilamai kolam "nee illadhabOdhu engum nenjam" is by Sujatha.

Veterans can help...

My God....

Dear Madhu....

Lets check through websites and get the answer for this.

There is another question mark on..... ORU INIYA MANADHU ISAYAI..... from Jhonny.. whether it is Jency or SUjatha....

But going by the style of pronounciation... I feel Nee illadhapodhu... must be Jency ... I think...

Melam kotta neram song was sung by Jency in her Jaya tv programme recently also .....

madhu
8th August 2005, 05:09 PM
Hi Balaji !

I am sure about Sujatha in Ilamai KolangaL song. Coz that was my fav once.. :P . U cant fix her voice those days within a range..
Just compare "kalai paniyil" in Gayathri.. "Kadhal Oviyam" in kavikkuyil... it was always different..

Now.. u cant say this voice sing "sakkara inikkira sakkara"..

In Johnny... " oru iniya manadhu " is by Sujatha and "en VanilE orE veNNila" is by Jency.

I donno abt Jaya TV program. But I am sure that "Melam kotta neram varum" is by B.S.Sasirekha.. It is one of her popular hits.
There is a happy and sad version of the song..

Of course the other songs from the film are also not by Jency I think. "VElayee veerayee" is by SJ and "thenna marathula" is by IR and PS.

saradhaa_sn
8th August 2005, 06:39 PM
Dear Balaji & Madhu...

I am sure that "Melam kotta neram varum..poonkodiye" is by Jency only (in Lakshmi).

Regarding 'Johny'

"Kaatril... pongum Geetham" by S.Janaki
"En Vaaniley...Orey vennila" by Jency
"Oru Iniya manathu isaiyai anaithu" by Sujatha
"Aasaiyai kaathula thoodhu vittu" by S.P.Shailaja

I am 100% sure in this....

http://www.raajangahm.com/ric/film/FL000367.html

and in www.vanijairam.com, saravanan writes
"B.S.Sasirekha got to sing a great song for IR this year: "Melam kotta neram varum" (Lakshmi), and the song remains among the very best in her long career. Her other songs in 1979 were: "Aanpillai endraalum" (Aarilurundhu Arupathuvarai), "Nee kannil vaazhum" (Agal Vilakku), "Kozhi potta kozhi" (Chakkalathi), "Sevvaname ponmegame" (Nallathoru Kudumbam), "Imayam kanden" (Imayam), "Endhan karpanai theril" (Sri Ramajayam), "Vennila vellithattu" (Kali Koyil Kabali) and "Paalukku aadai" (Rajarajeswari).

Hi Anou!


My favourites of Jency are songs from Johny & Vizhiyil vizhunthu

I think most of us are unable to differentiate between the voices of Jency and B.S.Sasirekha.

"Vizhiyil vizhundu" is by BSS only. and even "Vizihiyorathu kanavum inRu" in Rajapaarvai with kamal is also by BS.

BTW I heard Jency the sister of singer Jolly Abraham.

[tscii:41763729e6]Dear All,

Another glorious hit of the late 70s…

Wish to mention about this movie… Incidentally, it was the first movie SPB sang for BR movie !!. He infact will start with … Mudhal mudhalaaga kaadhal duet paada vandhenay…

All songs in this movie are hits. It was a different BR movie ..

This song of Iruparavaigal .. Was by Radhika with Sudhakar… a solo song..

IR at his best using guitar interludes ….customary and trademark IR touches….

In my opinion... the best part of the song was..... neeendrum eni naan endrum azaikavum pirikavum mudiyaadhamaa

Sweet sweet voice of Jency...

Ys yes, both are of Sasirekha's only.. Thats for sure.

Jolly Abraham... of Adiyenai paaramaa... Vanakarthukuriya kaadhaliyay fame...

Its quite interesting to note that Jency is his sister....

Jolly also sang .. Meen reena geetha from Oru thalai raagam.. but could not carry on further.. .Probably moved to Kerala cinema

Dear Balaji...

Through your previous post, you created another doubt:

"Muthal muthalaaga kaathal duet paada vandhene" from NMPookkal. You mentioned it is by SPB. But I am in doubt it is Malaysia Vasudevan.

Listen these lines:

"Seetha en kaatha kodiye kan paarammaa..
aathaaram neeyilllaamal verethamma" exactly MV's tone.

next line "adhu yaara andha pen".."ORU NADIGAIYAMMA" (sure it should be MV).

next line:
"Zeenath en kanavil vandhaal un polave..
Singaara paavai undhan vadivaagave"...

again:
"enai poloru penn"......"INDHA ULAGIL ILLAI" (No doubt it is MV only).

S.Balaji
9th August 2005, 04:07 PM
I am saying this EMPHATICALLY... that its from SPB SPB SPB only !!!

Probabably all the change of voice inbetween ( for that andi !! )were also of SPB's only.

To add to this I am recollecting one programme of SPB where he himself mentioned about this song that eventhough he and BR were good friends , he could not get into his movies but this was the first opportunity for him to sing and it was a coincidence that the lyrics also ... mentioning

Mudhal mudhalaaga kadhal duet paadavanthenay..

madhu
9th August 2005, 10:20 PM
Hi..

mudhal mudhalaga is SPB only..

Movie - Karumbu vil

Radhika and Sudhakar... also Subashini was there ( sister of Jayasudha )

This movie came in the late 70s ...

This song was sung by KJY also solo....

The lyrics are below :




meen kodi theril manmadha raajan orvalam pogintran
radhiyo vithiyin pirivil madhano radhiyin ninaivil
uravin sugame irave tharume
kaadalar thevanin poojaiyil nalinil

Balaji,

Maybe people here get Jaya TV... we are not big TV watchers so we don't have a dish.. we have the basic cable that does not include any Indian channel...

It would have been lovely to watch Jency though!

I have no doubt on mudhal mudhalaaga... its spb only.

but still have doubts on Oru iniya manadhu ... probably both jency and sujatha are from kerala and their pronounciation of words were similar in style and hence this confusion !!

Dear Balaji....

Regarding 'Johny'

"Kaatril... pongum Geetham" by S.Janaki
"En Vaaniley...Orey vennila" by Jency
"Oru Iniya manathu isaiyai anaithu" by Sujatha
"Aasaiyai kaathula thoodhu vittu" by S.P.Shailaja

I am 100% sure in this....

I already mentioned in one post that, Sujatha mentioned herself in a stage programme with Jesudoss (several years before) her second song in Tamil Cinema is "Oru Iniya Manathu" in Johny and Ilaiyaraja only gave her that oppertunity. That function was before her marriage, and she was with 'paavaadai, thaavani'.

You are right.. I verified other sites and found that sujata who sang that song.. Oru iniya manadhu....

Hello... appe...

You are correct.
From the begining the title was irritating me as

"JENCY-THE FORGOTTEN SINGER"

When there are thousands of her devoted fans like us, then how can be 'OUR' Jency will be a forgotten singer...??.

Nowadays TMS also not singing any new songs. Is it possible him a forgotten singer..??

But we can tell like this:
"Jency, the forgotten singer by Music Directors & Producers". How is it?.

Thanks a lot to Mr. Balaji, for opening this thread and make us great joy. I am happy that, this is running in 3rd page and wish it should go continously.

[tscii:5e22399dc3]Dear all,

This song is from another famous movie of late 70s.. Pudhiya vaarpugal…

The combination was great…. BR / IR / Bagyaraj as actor ( full fledged )…in 16vayadhinilay.. he will appear as Muruthuvar when Sridevi falls sick and KH will attend to her….
Rathi Agnihotri made her debut…
There was also G.Sreenivsan coming up as a villain…

This movie was a big success… Again the golden combination of the late 70s….

Here our Jency sang 2 songs and one of them is given below :

It is a solo and a background song …..


idhayam poguthey enaye pirinthein
kaadhal ilangaathu paadugindr paatu
kaadhal ilangaathu paadugindra patu ketkadhoo
idhayam poguthey..

maniyoasai ketu mazhivoodu netru

suduneeril vizhundhu thudikindra meen pol

"probably both jency and sujatha are from kerala" - Sure they are from Kerala (as is also the more famous Chitra):-)

Sujatha started off very early (probably when she was not even a teen, when in school) on KJY's stage programs...(my cousin attended one of them where she had something like a school uniform, shoes, stockings etc.) and she had such a sweet voice and beautiful pronunciation...right from the days of `kAlaippaniyil' & `kAdhal Ovium, kaNdEn, kanavO, ninaivO' till the relatively recent ones `50 KG taj mahal' of Jeans & `niRam piriththu pArthEn', `kAdhal nee dhAnA, kAdhal nee dhAnA' of Time, her singing is real sweet and the pronunciation is very good...(on the diction aspect, she is much better than Jency / KJY and comparable to Chitra / JC, IMHO)...All these singers - KJY, KSC, JC, Sujatha & Jency are nice contributions from chEra nAdu to TFM...

S.Balaji
11th August 2005, 09:37 PM
App.

You mentioned about Kalaipaniyil... Is it the one from Gayathri...

I thought its from Sasirekha....

WHen you mentioned about Cheranaadu... I recollect Arignar Anna's vasanam ( or Mukaa ).... Maatraan thotathu maligayum manakkum....

Great to note that PS .. from Andhra... SPB as well

KJY ... from Cheranadu

PBS... from Karnataka

EVEN THE ONE AND ONLY ... TMS..... THE ROOTS ARE FROM SAURASHTRA .... BUT FOR GENERATIONS SETTLED DOWN IN MADURAI...


All have contributed immensely to TFM......

I REMEMBER A SAYING FROM SANKARABARANAM... from the words of the great Somayajulu.... MUSIC IS DIVINE... WHETHER WESTERN ON INDIAN....

Music has no case , creed, language ......

[tscii:d21c00ef86]Wish to add to the glorious hits of Jency…. Again great combination :

Rajini in dual roles with Sridevi and Deepa
Direction by Mahendran
Camera by Ashok Kumar

Music by IR….

All songs were smashing hits…..

Jency’s one of favourite songs…. She sang for Sridevi..

The song situation itself will be poetical… Rajini trying to play piano and not able to get the swaram properly and Sridevi trying to explain him…. And goes ahead with the song….

Rajini will be quietly watching Sridevi as she sings that song…..

This was Jency at her best. :


enn vaanile ore vennilaa
kaadhal megangal kavidhai thaaragai oorvalam

Balaji you are correct...

Music has no boundries like language, caste, states..etc.

Thatswhy we are enjoying Mohamed Rafi, Kishore and Lathaji...

I remember one thing. I had fortunated to watch a video cassette of SPB's Dubai stage musical programme. In the middle of the programme, the compier interviewed SPB and asked one question:

"SPB sir, you are singing several languages, but which is your mother tongue".

SPB suddenly replied : "My mother tongue is MUSIC. Thatswhy Mohamed Rafi, Soundar Rajan and Yesudoss are brothers for me".

(No need to mention that there was a great applause)

SPB is a NIRAIKUDAM.... so also KJY.....

I feel pained when SPB expressed his concern in one programme about the current crop of singers....

HE IS CONCERNED THAT HE IS NOT ABLE TO REMEMBER THE SINGER BY THE SONGS.....
HE IS ALSO CONCERNED WITH THE LACK OF COMMITMENT TO THE SONG...

When Ninaithalay enikkum got released … along with that Priya also got released.. I think… The songs of both the movies were heard for a long long time and there was hectic race for the best song as well..

Priya was known mainly for foreign location… nice decent acting by Rajini and Sridevi and above all.. wonderful music by IR….

This song was sung by Rajini and Chinese lover…. Another lovely song from Jency and KJY

1.mahendran – direction
2.balu mahendra – camera
3.music – ir
4.star cast – rajini / saratbabu / shoba / fadafat jayalakshmi

this movie was a big success … excellent acting from everybody … it was a milestone for rajini….

our jency’s one of the all time favourite song is given below…. it’s a solo and was a super hit…..
one can hear lot of jaladharangam being used along with flute in this song….

barathi raja tried something different in this movie… there were three heroines…with kamal …. being the lead role…
it was a commercial movie… i think the movie was not a major success commercially but the songs wereery popular… even rajini’s wife also sang a song…

this song is by jency with kjy…. madhavi performing a barathanatyam and kamal interrupting inbetween and the song goes on further.

a lovely song

Madhu,
Jency and Jollee are both from Ernakulam, they are distant cousins, definitely not siblings. Jollee shifted to Chennai way back in the early 70s. Now he has a recording studio and is busy singing with his children Rohith and Reshma.

Sujatha lost her mother when she was two and was spotted early by Dasettan. Her better half Dr.Mohan is an alumnus of Stanes school which is in kovai.

Dear hhhwalrus....

I am not the daughter of S.N.Surendhar :D :D
But one among the very few 'abimaanis' for him, because of his different voice, not matching with any other singers.

Dear Saradhaji,

When one hears the song... Idhayam pogudhey...... one's heart will be pained.... Jency sang that one extremely well.. Manadhai uruga vaikkum paadal......

The success rate of Jency was almost 100 % but I wonder wonder wonder........
May be in the 80s the generation of Radha, Ambiga, Amala, Revathy, Madhavi ..... for them SJ's voice was better suited and Jency faded away.....

Sujatha lost her *dad* when she was 2 years old (not mom).

There was in interview with Jency in Anandha Vikatan sometime back. She said she decided to get married and go back to Kerala when she was getting lots of good chances. It seems even IR had advised her then to stick on to her profession. She says that now, since she her 2 children have grown up, she would like to take up singing again but is 'scared' to go back to IR since she had gone against his advice.

I think Jency's style of singing was very normal and bland. But it had some specialness and almost all the songs she was offered were great melodies and therefore went on to become hits.

சில்லிட வைக்கும் பனிக்காற்றில் பச்சைப்பசேல் மலைச்சாரலில் நடந்து வரு வதுபோல் இருக்கும்.ஜென்சியின் குரல்.

`தம்தன தம்தன... தாளம் வரும்', `என் வானிலே...' `தெய்வீக ராகம்', `அடிப்பெண்ணே', `இரு பறவைகள் மலை முழுவதும்', `மயிலே மயிலே உன் தோகை எங்கே...' என்று இதயச்சுவர் முழுவதும் எப்போதும் எதிரொலித்துக்கொண் டிருக்கும் ஜென்ஸியின் கந்தர்வக் குரல்.

மயங்க வைத்த அந்தக் குரலை திடீரென்று காணோம். எங்கே ஜென்சி என்ற கேள்விக்கு யாரிடமும் பதிலில்லை. அவர் கேரளா சென்று எர்ணாகுளத்தில் நிரந்தரமாகத் தங்கிவிட்டார்.

``இப்போதும் என்னை நலம் விசாரித்து ஏகப்பட்ட போன் கால்கள். பாசத்தைக் கொட்டிப் பேசும் தமிழ் ரசிகர்களை மறக்கவே முடியாது. இந்தப் பெருமை எல்லாம் இளையராஜா சாருக்குத்தான் சேரும்.'' மலையாளம் கலந்த மழலைத் தமிழில் சிலிர்க்கிறார் ஜென்சி.

``எட்டு வயசிலேயே பாட ஆரம்பிச்சிட்டேன். அண்ணன் கிடார் வாசிக்க, நான் பாடினால் அக்கம் பக்கம் உள்ளவங்க அப்படியே சொக்கிப் போயிடுவாங்க. ஸ்கூல் படிக்கிறப்ப பாட்டுப் போட்டியில நான்தான் ஃபர்ஸ்ட். அப்பவே ஜானகி அம்மா கையில பரிசு வாங்கினேன். '' என்று சொல்லும்போது ஜென்சியின் கண்களில் பரவசம் படருகிறது.

``இது எப்படி அமைஞ்சதுன்னே தெரியல. ராஜா சார் பாடல்களை செலக்டிவா எனக்குக் கொடுத்தார். முதன்முதலா சினிமா பாடலா `வேளம்பல்' என்கிற மலையாள படம். எம்.கே.அர்ஜுன்தான் மியூசிக். மகாகவி வயலார் எழுதிய பாட்டுதான் நான் பாடினேன். எங்கேயோ என் குரலைக் கேட்டு ஜேசுதாஸ் அண்ணா என்னை ராஜா சார் முன்னால கொண்டு போய் நிறுத்தினார். ``இந்தப் பொண்ணு குரலைக் கேட்டுப்பாரு''ன்னு சொன்னார். `உனக்குப் பிடிச்ச பாட்டை பாடும்மா'ன்னு ராஜா சார் சொல்ல, `அன்னக்கிளி உன்னைத் தேடுதே'ன்னு நான் பாடி முடிக்கிறதுக்குள்ள `நாளைக்கு ரெக்கார்டிங்... வந்து பாடிட்டுப் போம்மா'ன்னு சொல்லிட்டார். எனக்கு கால் தரையில படல.'' என்று சொல்லிவிட்டு ஒவ்வொரு பாடலாகப் பாட ஆரம்பிக்கிறார்.

``காதல் ஓவியம்... பாடும் காவியம்... ராஜா சாரோடு சேர்ந்து பாடினது. அப்றம் ஒரு இனிய மனது இசையை அழைத்துச் செல்லும், இதயம் போகுதே... கீதா... சங்கீதா, மீன் கொடி தேரில்... எல்லாப் பாடல்களும் ரசிகர்கள் கொண்டாடிய ஹிட் சாங்ஸ். அப்ப டெக்னாலஜி இல்லாததால சின்ன தப்பு பண்ணினாலும் முதலிலிருந்தே பாடணும். பாடி முடிச்சதும் ராஜா சார் எப்போ வெரிகுட் சொல்வார்னு மனசு கிடந்து அடிச்சுக்கும். ஆனா சொல்லமாட்டார். `நீ பாடியதை நீயே கேட்டு சரி பண்ணு'னு சொல்லிட்டுப் போயிடுவார். இதுதான் அடுத்தடுத்து என்னை வளர்த்துக்க உதவுச்சு'' என்கிறார். இன்னும் அதே மயக்கும் குரல்.

``சரி, திடீரென்று ... போய்விட்டீர்களே என்ன ஆயிற்று?''

``ஆமாம். குடும்பச் சூழ்நிலை தான். கேரளாவிலேயே இருக்க வேண்டியதாயிற்று திருமணம் நடந்ததால் பொறுப்புகளும் கூடிவிட்டது. அதனால் பாடல் உலகத்தைவிட்டு விலகி விட்டேன்.''

மீண்டும் சினிமாவில் பாடணும்னு ஆசை வரலையா?'

``வந்துச்சு. ராஜா சாரை சந்திச்சு மறுபடியும் பாட ஆசைப்படுறேன்னேன். பிரசாத் தியேட்டருக்கு காலை 8 மணிக்கு வந்திடுன்னார். இரவெல்லாம் மறுபடியும் பாடப்போற சந்தோஷம். ஆனா என் மகன் நிதினுக்கு திடீரென்று குளிர் ஜுரம் வந்துடுச்சு. விடிந்ததும் விஜயா ஹாஸ்பிட லுக்குத் தூக்கிட்டுப் போனோம். அதுல எல்லாம் மறந்துபோச்சு. பத்து மணிக்குதான் ஞாபகம் வந்து, டாக்ஸி பிடிச்சு பிரசாத் ஸ்டுடியோ போனேன். ஆனா ஏற்கெனவே அந்தப் பாடலை ஜானகி அம்மா பாடிட்டு வெளியே வந்தாங்க. நான் ஸ்டுடியோ ஹால்லயே நின்னுட்டிருந்தேன். ராஜா வெளியே வந்து, ``இப்பதான் வந்தியா'' என்று கேட்டுவிட்டு உள்ளே போய்விட்டார். நான் எதையும் சொல்ல முடியாம அப்படியே திரும்பிட்டேன்.

இது நடந்து 15 வருஷமாயிடுச்சு.

எப்பவாவது பாட கூப்பிடுவார்னு ப்ராக்டீஸ் செய்துகிட்டேயிருக்கேன். இப்போ மலையாள ஆல்பங்களில் பாடிட்டிருக்கேன். என் கணவர் தாமஸ் டெல்லியில பிஸினஸ் பண்றார். நுபியான்னு ஒரு பொண்ணு, மகன் மரைன் என்ஜினீயர். எல்லாருமே என் பாடலை ரசிக்கிறாங்க. சந்தோசமா போகுது வாழ்க்கை.''

இப்போ வாய்ப்புக்கேட்கலையா?

``எண்பதுகளில் நான் பாடிய பல பாடல்களுக்கு கீ போர்டு வாசிச்ச பையன்தான் ஏ.ஆர்.ரகுமான். பெரிய ஆளாயிட்டார். அவர் இசையில பாடணும்னு ரொம்ப ஆசை. ஆனா நான் யார்கிட்டேயும் போய் சான்ஸ் கேட்பது என் குழந்தைகளுக்குப் பிடிக்கல. அதனால இங்கேயே இருந்துட்டேன்'' என்று சொல்லிவிட்டு, பாட ஆரம்பிக்கிறார்.

``மயிலே... மயிலே... உன் தோகை எங்கே...''

அதே மலைச்சாரலில் பனிக் காற்றில் பயணிக்கத் தொடங்குகிறது மனது!.

Deiveega raagam .... song from Ullasa paravaigal...

Another great song of Jency

I am highly addicted to that song, Jency maam had distinctive voice.... 'Iru paravaighal malai muluvathum'... was just awsome...

I recently watched beginning part of super hit Rosaapoo ravikkai kaari. When title cards are shown, you hear a very sweet humming or aalab piece in folk style. The male voice was MV and/or IR. To my surprise the female voice was Jency's. I played the recorded part twice and confirmed. But to my disappointment, her name was not shown in title cards. Superb humming of Jency. I am not sure whether she herself would remember this :-)
