"Aadi Katre"

Weeks, Months are flying past this year. Something that stays still in my mind is memories of my holidays in Kanyakumari - the southern tip of India. Green fields, strong winds, rocky divine mountains and of course the matchless ocean - it is actually the meeting point of three oceans at Kanyakumari - The Indian Ocean, Arabian sea and Bay of bengal. It is beauty like no other.

Here is a self composed tillana in carnatic-jazz. The song is about "Aadi Katre" (Wind in the month of "Aadi" - which is typically half of each - July and Aug) in the southern tip of India - how the wind kisses the mountains, how the wind plays with the flowers on the mountains and the sea..
