    Muralidharan, good posts!

    On nalinakanthi, I think ye housla is not in it. Also 'manam virumbuthe' - except for the starting similarity with manavyalakim. There's more nalinakanthi in the start of this song, don't you think:



    Also here's a beautiful alapana by Nithyashree from the same movie

    I have seen great singers moving the listeners to tears by their soulful singing ! But here, this child Anushya , something different ! She, the singer herself, breaks into tears, towards the end. Apparently, moved by the loaded lyrics and the meaning of the folk song !.
    The audience is speechless , overwhelmed, tears welling, the judges are stunned !!



    Just for reference, The original song from "Thendral" . Music by Vidyasagar .

    Raga : Mohanam

    Raga : Mohanam

    Yesterday night , (26th Jan 2015) I was watching movie "Aranmanai" in Sun TV. In that , this song, "Sonnadhu Sonnadhu needhane"
    sung by Harini in Mohanam ( I think so !)was quite nice. Music by Bharathwaj.



    Perhaps, This song from film Ayya , by Sadhana Sargam , is a bit comparable, somewhere, in a few places, in to that Aranmanai song. Raga could be the reason , may be the similarity of voice, music director and or style of singing too !

    "Of all human powers operating on the affairs of mankind, none is greater than that of competition." - Henry Clay .

    I felt this when I was watching the show in Vijay TV Super Singer Junior 4 wild card competition. Perhaps, this challenge rounds are a bit too much for their tender age ! Parental pressure, peer level comparison and stuff like that !

    All the 8 contestants were battling it out , heart out ! The out come , during the rounds, was some beguiling songs coming to the fore !

    Listened to this captivating, sonorous song on 29th Jan 2015 "Vaidehi Raman Kai Serum.." Film Pagal Nilavvu . What a a beautiful & delightful Composition by the great Ilayaraja.!

    It is a ragamalaika. Kalyani, Hindolam Mohanam ...



    No matter what these children has been through, they are still here, fighting! .

    They might have been challenged ,hurt , betrayed , beaten and discouraged , but nothing has defeated them.

    Raga : Pantuvarali

    Considered "A meditative raga, Pantuvarali brings forth a wide gamut of emotions when elaborated, and is one of the favourite ragas of rasikas and performers alike. A hint of pathos, intense yearning, a pleading quality — these are the signature emotions that Pantuvarali would convey". - Charulatha Mani .

    A remarkable captivating piece in this raga is "Om Siva Om" from "Naan Kadavul" . Isai by Isaignani. Very powerful song. Singer Vijay Prakash.




    2. There are very engaging pieces in this raga : Some samples here :
    "In the Nimisham" – Film " Hello" By Deva .




    3. One Super hit by ARR in Hindi Film 'Hai Rama"- Rangeela.
    (Perhaps, You can see some succulent semblance in the tunes between items 2 and 3 )

    .

    Raaga : Brindavani Sarang

    A Pleasing and Emotional Raga with a light and tranquilizing effect, this Brindavani .

    Ancient Nada yoga Says Playing, performing and even listening to appropriate ragas can work as a medicine. In that sense of therapeutic effects, RAGA CHIKITSA says Brindavan Saranga is cure for Digestive problems. So here is a few numbers in that raga. Enjoy !

    Starting with Carnatic :

    The signature song for this raga is Sri Ranga Puravihara. Listen to the divine voice of MSS and
    Also have the dharshan of Ranganathar of Srirangam Temple !


    From Light music side,

    This malayalam song is really nice : Mazhayil Ratri Mazhayil - Manjari - Romantic song



    Hindustani : Jugalbandi in Brindavan Saranga by Pravin Godkhindi (Flute)- Jayateerth Mevundi (Vocal) . It is just class apart.




    Coming to Tamil film songs side , Snegithiye - 'Radhai Manathil' Song. Lovely Dance sequence .
    Vidyasagar Music. Singers : Chithra, Sujatha, Sangeetha and Shajith

    Dwijavanti Raga

    You may be aware Dwaja means flag. Vanthi means Praise . So we may say Dwijavanti Raga for patriotism. Is not ' Raghupati raghav rajaram’ on everybody's lips?

    In Dwajawanti “Manappennin Sathyam" by Latha Rajanikanth (Singer) from "Kochadaiyan" were enchanting ! Very nice Wedding Vows ! Somebody said, a must in marriage and engagement functions. Perhaps, appropriate in sashtiaptha poorthis too ! Lyrics by Vairamuthu Awe !



    Also, the complimentary "Manamaganin Sathyam" by Haricharan (with Super Star animation )

    Raga Megh Malhar



    Legends say this Megh Malhar, Hindustani raga has the power to bring out rains in the area where it is sung.

    A tamil song form "Star", "Thom Karuvil Irunthom" by Shankar Mahadevan & A. R. Rahman.

    May remind "Dheem Ta Dara" film ‘Thakshak’ sung by Surja Bhattacharya (ARR)



    Perhaps, because it is a 'cloud' raga, there is a lovely rain dance piece . A good dance by Aiswarya Bacchan from Guru : “Barso re “ . In tamil, “Ven megam mutta mutta” A super song.
