Happy Navaratri everyone!
Navaratri is a beautiful Indian festival to honor and celebrate the divine female energy in all her manifestations and forms. The beauty of this festival is it is nine days of celebrating women essentially. Wish everyone the strength to make the journey within and to get to know, love and embrace all of you in all your heartaches and glory for that is truly the journey we all are on.
My latest project has been a special one and will remain near and dear to me always since it is my very first project with my daughter, Siri. We were listening to this track, Jiya Re, on our way back from school one day and Siri got really excited by it and said, we should sing this song together. First, I was delighted. I loved her enthusiasm and her idea. What followed was fear and doubt of doing something I had never done before. I got overwhelmed by how I was going to bring this creative idea of hers to life. The only way I managed through my fears was by diving right into it. Thus began our Jiya Re journey. Somehow little by little and after many do’s and re-do’s, things started to shape up. Hope you like our little venture!
I had fun singing this melody from the recent movie Dangal. It has a light hearted and fun feel to the song. The lyrics is very poetic. It is about a girl who has moved to a big city away from her family for the first time. It expresses her playfulness, her innocence of the unknown, her excitement of experiencing life in all its crazy flavors.
