Hospital, Little Champ, Kishore's Unheard Song

Hospital days again! Mom is in the hospital again. The good news is that I have not yet fought with the nurses or any of the hospital staff yet.:) Yep, they have been very helpful. Also, mom has been showing signs of improvement. Last two years have been really very difficult for her. Hopefully there are some hopes, happiness and laughter for her in the coming years.:) In spite of her pain and weariness in the hospital, she has not stopped filling the crossword.:) Way to go, Mom.:)))


I have been watching the LITTLE CHAMP episodes of SaReGaMaPa. It is amazing to watch the little kids belting out complicated songs with so much of ease. Thanks to them- I have been getting the opportuity of listening to some rare songs. One thing that I noticed was that the parents seemed more tensed than the kids who were performing. They were acting as if it were a matter of life and death. I wish they had let the kids just enjoy their singing without thinking about the results. Among the judges, Alka Yagnik and Bappi Lahiri have been very equitable. I like the way Alka gives tips to the kids to improve further. On the whole, kudos to those little champs for giving such stunning performances.:)

Speaking of LITTLE CHAMPS, one of the kids sang "Chanda O Chanda" on the show the other day. I was listening to it for the first time. So did a bit of research on it. The song is from "Lakhon Mein Ek" and is sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. Lata has sung the last 4 lines. So the song is dominated by Kishore Kumar. The music was composed by R.D.Burman and the lyrics were written by Anand Bakshi.

I am a great fan of Kishore Kumar. But I had never heard this song before. It is such a touching and very beautiful song. I have fallen in love with it. Every time I find out that there is some song of Kishore Kumar that I have not heard. I wonder how many more such gems of Kishore Kumar are yet to be discovered.:)
