Chennai Floods

#Chennai was washed away and everything stood still...

This had never happened before... nobody was prepared for this.

My child and I were alone and with no electricity and dead phone lines...

I could not reach out to loved ones and they could not reach me...What in the world was happening??

Totally cut off from civilisation...

Life was in animated suspension for two whole days... every moment suspenseful... food supply at an all time low...what would happen now?

Then suddenly the generator struck up and I connected with the world once again.

I watched the news and saw the devastation that had swallowed Chennai...

I learned then that I was in a much better position than thousands of others.

People lost their lives and some even had to helplessly watch as their loved ones were torn away from  their embrace while the merciless floods took everything in its path.

It tore my heart to see this... I started reaching out to volunteers so I could help in whatever small way I could. I donated whatever I could from food, money, clothing to tea and coffee...

Then got a call from Bhavatha who was also having a hard time believing that this had happened to us... We were sad, hurt... and sorry. What better way to bring out our feelings than through the written word and music.

So here began our first song together as a team (I have sung before for many of her compositions) in respect to the departed and in support of the living...

I have had an interesting journey through this song. First off, I turned writer (I have been writing poetry for a while as you can see in my previous blogs albeit not everything I write comes on this blog but just the ones that i truly think deserve to be here for you to read) So in this song I poured my heart out and genuinely felt every word I wrote. Bhavatha had composed the perfect tune for this heart-rending situation and my lyrics flowed with it.

Then came the challenge of having a visual with this song.Thanks to someone who refused to help us out on this, I decided that nothing was going to stop me and decided to turn director and camerawoman. So armed with a our iPhones and iPads Bhavatha and myself took our first step into the world of film making.

After many hiccups and trials (no memory space being the biggest one!) we had a whole gamut of footage. Now what?

Again when approached some one to help edit it, they quoted a whooping amount (which is sad, considering the floods had affected everyone and this should be from the heart FOR YOUR CITY!) Hence I decided that if I can pull-off being behind the camera maybe I could pull-off being an Editor?

The next step was into my house and onto my trusty iMac. God Bless Steve Jobs for making life so simple for us, I was easily (with a few minor hiccups) able to bring out the editor in me :-) I have a newfound respect for editors because everything happens finally at the editors table. An entire movie can fall flat on its face if not edited right. From color to essence its ALL in the editors hands. Big kudos to them.

Another surprise factor in the song is my son Adityaa:-) This is his first ever recording and I'm quite the proud mum. You will see him featured along with the talented Yathishvar, who is the son of KarthikRaja and grandson of Maestro Illayaraja.

So with many feathers in my cap now I'm proud to present to you 'THE RAIN SONG'!!!
