While your Facebook timeline is going to thrust you with “Oru Naal Podhuma” and “Chinna Kannan Azhaikkiran”, I am going to point you to a poignant song from Kavikkuyil, quietly. I am not for mourning the death of legends like Balamurali Krishna. He has lived a life of excellence. He has composed innumerable songs, created new Raagas and entertained millions. We should be celebrating his life rather than mourning his death.

Inputs from Vid Dev

It is not so easy to identify raga for a complex quirky song sung by Balamurali (he almost always sings like that). This particular song is a ragamalika and I think it transcends from Paras to Aahiri Bhairavi and ends in Maand. Each raga starts with a flute prelude.
What more do you need?

Listen to Balamurali’s songs and remember his life whenever you listen to him – that’s the best tribute you can give to the legend.
