Illayaraja Special

Couple of months back, I wrote a poem on Illayaraja: http://7swara.blogspot.com/2008/06/tribute.html

Immediately, my father-in-law jumped to compose a tune for the lyrics and he sung himself. Already my father-in-law spoke with Mr.Gangai Amaran and Gangai Amaran was very impressed with the song and has promised to take us to Illayaraja when I go to India. I can't wait for the D-Day!!

Meanwhile, my wife gave an idea of compiling Raaja's pictures with this background as a Video. And here you go:

Your father-in-law's voice is very young. Photo compilation is also very good.
