The moon….

When I was about to go to my tent at JLR Bannerghatta, I looked up at the full moon, serenely riding the night skies.

And the next night, when I looked out of my balcony, the moon was rising, still looking full:

fll mn 100112

Having taken a zoom shot, I got the moon through the palm fronds:

mn palm 100112


is my entry about the moon, some time ago. I promised that I would post the Tamizh film song about the moon….alas, I cannot find the original video anywhere on Youtube. The only video which has the original soundtrack does not give me a URL to post….can someone help me? The song is “andru vanthathum athE nilA”.

    I believe there’s a ‘happy’ and a ‘sad’ version of this song. I have it in MP3 format but in a laptop that’s not with me at the moment. 😦

    I first heard this song over a decade ago when Sun TV would play old Tamil hits after 11 pm. It was how I got to know of Kannadasan, Valli, TMS et al. Sadly I think Sun stopped telecasting old songs at night in favour of ‘latest hits’ (which I mostly don’t care for).

      You’re right about the two versions. But Hari, Jaya Music channel airs old Tamil songs from 8am to 9am every morning, and Jaya TV airs “thEn kiNNam”, with a guest compere on Monday, requests on Tuesday, information about the songs on Wednesday, a theme on Thursday….every morning from 9am to 10 am and repeats from 11pm to midnight…you could tape it and watch it. I get a lot of information about the various old hit songs, and some beautiful songs are’s also great fun to watch heroes looking like well-fermented iddlis, pretending to be college boys and running behind even more well-padded heroines whose pointed bosoms stick out straight from their shoulder-blades….
