This would perhaps sound the best since the notation isn't mine. :)
Since I didn't know the exact tune, I kind of mugged up the notes and played. Thank you Google, for the notes!

I'll post a better sounding midi once I begin playing the chords.

Here are the notes:

E D# E D# E B D C A   C E A B  E G# B C

E E D# E D# E B D C A  C E A B  E C B A

E D# E D# E B D C A  C E A B  E C B A

E D# E D# E B D C A  C E A B  E C B A

& here goes my small tribute to the maestro

Chupke se chupke se

I managed to learn just the "pallavi" for now. Wanted to play atleast one song of A R Rahman, and this was the simplest amongst all. Writing the notation for one stanza has taken as much effort as learning the notation for an entire song of any other composer. That is AR! Planning to learn the complete song soon.

For now,,,,

Chupake     se chupake    se raath   ki chaadar thale

About this Blog

Hey hi. Thanks for visiting my blog. Few dislaimers before I get started. :) This being my first attempt at blogging, I might not have hosted a well organized blog. Also, am no piano stud. Haven't taken any lessons as such, I simply play for myself. So, my notes might be faulty at places. Please do bear with me. :)

Alright now, let me introduce myself. This is Manjusha, a simple Indian housewife living in the US. After years of studies and work, I'm now jobless in this "land of opportunities". :( To kill time, I do 'n' number of things. Thankfully, am not bored of this H4 status yet. I love to read, anything. Be it the techie stuff or works of fiction or the newspaper. Virtually anything. :) Also like music. Enjoy watching movies and outdoor activities like skiing. That's a little about me.

Having seen many of my friends set their foot on the blogosphere, I too wanted to give it a shot. But the big question is - what do I blog about? With this thing hovering in my mind, I've spent several sleepless nights. Seriously guys. :) Most bloggers usually write about their hobbies or in general, scribble about anything and eveything on this planet expressing their opinion. My activities mainly include cooking, reading and wandering in the world of internet. So, I could not really come up with anything interesting to write about.

Many of my friends are food-bloggers. They write real good recipes, and take amazing pictures. Lately, food-photography has become an art in itself. I really appreciate their patience for maintaining such good websites. I have enough patience and interest too for blogging. But food-blog and me - a big NO. I was a pathetic cook until a while ago. Couldn't even prepare a cup of coffee for dad. My husband has already gained enough sympathy from my friends for having become the guinea pig of my kitchen.:) But am lot better now. My food blog (if it exists) would just contain one single post, describing my universal recipe for all the veggies. :) Fry the tadka, onions, tomatoes & any veggy of your choice and thats it, your curry is ready! Pretty simple, isn't it?. :) Got bored of using the same template for everything, and have started googling for recipes. Long live Indira (of mahanandi) and Prema Sundar (prema's cookbook @ blogspot)!

The other thing, I could have blogged about is books. I enjoy reading fiction. Read mostly Sheldon, Archer and Grisham. Except for few works of Dan Brown, Chetan Bhagat and Sudha Murthy, the books I mostly read are all best-sellers of yester-years. There are hazaar reviews of them already available on the net. So, I've got nothing new to enlighten people about. :) Oh by the way, any techie guys out there, try reading the "Head First" series of books when you find time. A good source for re-learning the concepts, the head-first way!

Still the desire for blogging remains, even though I can't think of what to blog about. After giving enough thought, I finally decided to blog about my new found love, which happens to be my piano. I was never a music enthusiast. My mom pained me enough during my school days by joining me in veena classes. Tried hard and finally managed to get rid of them with an excuse for saving time for my studies. After that, I've never touched any instrument. I love listening to music, movie songs as well as the instrumental stuff. But somehow, lack the interest to actually learn music. After marriage, I've seen my husband play movie songs on his piano and was impressed. Most of them are real good melodies, songs that are evergreen. It took no time for the enthu to creep into me. My husband introduced me to the sa-ri-ga-ma's on the piano and that's it, I started playing khooni-ragas with one finger. :) Pained by that, he taught me my first song - papa kehte hain from QSQT. I loved playing it. And therafter, started playing on my own. Thanks to musicindiaonline for the good collection of songs that I keep pause-and-playing infinite number of times. Am in a better shape now. Each time I learn a new song, I play it for my parents, showcasing my piano heroics. :) The happiness I get after learning a song is boundless.

Googling for piano notes would take you to several websites that list the notes for many Indian songs. But the satisfaction in writing the notation yourself is lots. So, I made it a point not to peep into the notes. My notes are not perfect. Whenever I find it hard to accurately note-ify a portion of a song, I approximate it by sampling at few places in between.:) To start with, I posted few songs that I've learnt till now. Each post contains the notes, and two players. One that plays the actual song and the other that plays a record of what I play on the piano (in MIDI format). My notes are all chord-free, since I haven't learnt chords yet. I'd soon learn playing the piano properly, and perhaps put up few tutorials too. :)

So that's it folks! Before I wind up, few credits I'd like to include:

1. My husband, for inspiring me into this piano stuff.

2. My friend's blog (valliskitchen @ blogspot) for making me want one of my own.

3. Ironically, the H4 visa, for giving me all the time in this world!
