Nee Bandu Ninthaaga – Kasturi Nivasa

This is my all-time favorite song written by my father.

In early May 2008, when he was recovering from a massive stroke in Ramaiya Hospital, Bangalore, I played this very video for him on YouTube.

He had completely lost his speech, and entire right-side movement. But he was still able to carry a tune perfectly.

While the video played, he and I hummed along together – one of the last amazing moments I had with my father.

I’m actually amazed that I’m able to recollect this without completely breaking down. That’s life I guess 🙂
