Unai Arindal Nee Unai Arindal

As we are fast approaching the end of year 2009 given my schedule at this time of the year, I am not sure if I will have time to make another blog post before 12/31. So I decided to end 2009 postings on a philosophical note and some food for thought. Thus, I came about making this song.

While Late MGR was a great actor, I always thought his movies got that extra lift from social themes and some catchy songs. This song from the original movie Vetaikaran was sung by TM Soundarrajan for KV Mahadevan's music and as you might have guessed the lyrics was penned by Kanadasan.

Those were the days when MGR was an active Dravidian moment disciple with political ambitions and a number of his social and philosophical songs captured the hearts and imaginations of the general Tamil population more specifically the economically and socially backward ones.

Considering the new Vetaikaaran movie starring Vijay came out recently, I thought this would be an apt moment to do this golden oldy.

Let me take this opportunity to wish all my listeners "Happy Holidays and a Prosperous New Year"

As always, enjoy this song and please comment.
