Manathodu Mano - Part 2


Kavitha and Hari said...

I cried listening to some of your songs in part 2. My whole family slept, so all i had was your music and my soul. Your mom must be so proud of you. May we get to hear more of you in live programs. Is there a place where i can list of all the songs you sang?

Inspirational interview I listened to you I remembered....

People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.
Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.
In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.

-Mother Teresa

Its was really cute and nice. . . Liked that "Karthik bit" my sister keep telling it at home . . Really nice. . Waiting to see next adventure

Awesome performance again! Now, should we be scared of loosing you to Bollywood - as the program turned out to be a perfect audition for gazals/hindustani. I was watching the program with a white American friend, and he appreciated the way you rendered Andrew Lloyd Webber. Though Mano mentioned it like a million times, it's worth repeating here again - your versatility is "AMMMAZING!" - the expression you used a lot during the program (chellamaa oru kindal).

Awesome interview. Admire your humility despite achieving quite a lot at a young age. Best wishes for all your future endeavors.

Hi Chinmayi,

My family is a big fan of yours. We just love your singing and tv show hosting. Your voice is amazing and we love when you dub for movies. My personal favourite is VTV "Enna yenna seyya solra Karthik" :p I cannot stop listening to Anbil avan song from VTV. There is something special about that song. I watched your Manadhodu Mano Episode Part II and fell in love with your ghazal singing. I have no clue about ghazals but found your singing very close to my heart for some reason. I have been watching you from the time you participated on Sun tv sapthaswarangal. I still remember the episode where you sang Thathithom from Azhagan. You wore a dark brown dress that day if I remember :)

You have such a great personality that commends respect and ofcourse lots and lots of love :)

We wish you very good luck in all your projects and pray God that you have joy and only joy in your life.

My namaskaram to your mom. From your interview in Manadhodu Mano, I just realized what Girl Power means!!

You rock

Chinnu - how do we describe your sessions with Manothodu Mano - my husband and I loved it and wish to hear more - also I never realised your verstility. Have you any cd's in Hindustani classical music - we just loved your repertoire and the selection of songs. Ennamma Kulanthu ungalukku appadi oru sogamum varuthamum??? My husband and I were crying when you finished. Long may your voice delight fans like me. lots of blessings and love Athiswari Vadivale

Thanks for the link to Manothodu Manu program. It was amazing to hear you sing such a wide range of songs. I'm intrigued by your ability to vary your voice for each genre, its not just the bhava or modulation, its something more complex than that. I'm not a trained musician so cannot understand what it is, it just blew me away.

How do you do it, how do you re-create the special voice every time you sing a song like Tere Bina or Uyire(from VTV), does it come from years of training or is it something else.

Like you mentioned, I did not know you sang some of the songs I've really liked, like the 'Kaadal Neruppin Nadanam' from Veyyil, until I saw this program. In a way, the uniqueness of your voice in each song probably brings forth the song first and masks your identity. I hope you are able to use this unique talent to your advantage and get the glory you truly deserve.

Wishing you the very best in your musical journey as well as life journey. Hoping to 'hear' more from you in the years to come.

God Bless.

I am a huge fan of you and I have been following all of your songs until now :) You are my inspiration for learning carnatic music. Currently, I live in Canada, but one day I want to visit India just to meet you in person (and I mean it!)

Hi Chinnu,

My 5 month old son became adorable fan of your singing of "Kesaria balan" in the show. Wheever he cries a lot, we switch on ur song,he stops crying immediately and fondly listens and eagerly watches you singing this song... I have recorded it and been using it for the past few days.. :-)
