At the outset, let me wish everyone on the occasion of the 68th Independent year in India. As a part of the celebrations though cultural highlighting, the local radio station in my city has come up with a tribute series of India's legendary film works and this humble cover of mine has been selected to be aired to showcase the legendary combination of veteran composer (Late)Sri.MSV and veteran film maker (Late) Sri. K.Balachander. It feels like a special honor to be able to contribute to a reflection of the brainchild of 2 legends. With powerful, thought-bearing lyrics by Sri. Athreya, this Telugu song featured in the superhit movie "Marocharithra" with Kamalhassan's immaculate acting prowess amongst his early works. The movie was remade in Hindi as 'Ek Duuje Ke Liye' and created the same historic impact as its Telugu original.
