Airtel Super Singer Junior 2

Airtel Super Singer Junior 2

I would say the best batch of junior team is this as all of the members are eligible to be a professional singer.Voice expert Ananth's training has brought out the real singing personalities out of these young talents...in terms of by-hearting whole songs and singing before the crowd without a single note is a very positive attitute i have seen in this kids...far more talented than i was at this age.

But what i observed is the best drama of all time has played its best show in form of partiality...Yes, in the team shrikanth is the worst person as i have seen with least ability to perform in the show are rounds getting more professional.We have clearly seen in the viewers poll that priyanka was leading choice with bright chance of getting into final rounds with her light voice best suited for soothing songs... if you take the handful of wild card round members (Srinisha,Nithyashree, Alka,Priyanka,Shravan,Roshan) each has exceptional individual qualities...

Alka's superb performance at the finals...

As Alka and Shravan has professional singing quality... Priyanka has light music singing and Nithyashree, Srinisha are the voice for heavy duty song with throw ... each gifted versatile singing proved they are capable...

Priyanka in Wildcard

See the mixing against the film video song, if priyanka would sing in the film this is what it would be... Hats off Priyanka !!!

Priyanka on many occasions got appreciation from judges as emerging best light music personnel... how come she got filtered in the finals i donno... even srinisha was blasting the show...I learnt from some sources that there are persons inside Vijay TV who are highly placed promote not so performing candidates like shrikanth to portray him as an icon....viewers are showed that he is having talent but in reality that goes for the dogs...Only purpose to promote Shrikanth is to hike the TRP among the users and i really feel that shrikanth would have not got leading votes as it is shown .... sometimes it feels very disgusting to see real talents being suppressed by mean minded persons not only in media but in real life too...

As far i see any contest it is not about first place or second place....as every person in unique and lets give chance to well performing... than promoting for one's need...As i can see Alka, Shravan getting the winner and runner is justified but potential candidates like Priyanka, nithyashree, Srinisha must also be given equal recognition as they all have unique voice capablity...

Look at the mind blowing performance by Srinisha , what a throat throw...

As i know so far Srinisha / Nithyashree / Priyanka are the best potential candidates for professional singing... who has been painfully filtered out.

I would say Priyanka, Nithyashree, Srinisha: Dont care about the prize as you have proved yourself to us as viewers...you all will be blessed forever!


I know! Raghuvaran

Raghuvaran the most talented villain actor ever for south indian movies...His slow voice, body language is the key to his success.There can be many villians but the one who got a permanent place into millions of heart is none other than Raghuvaran....

Who can forget his acting in BAASHA, MUDHALVAN... many more feather to his cap!

Shankar once told that he called Raghuvaran for the MUDHALVAN discussion and after hearing the whole story and his character, Raghuvaran instantly gave his trademark look, immediately shankar got the clue that Raghu already got into the character as no further discussion business anymore... went straight to shoot with him!

RIP Raghuvaran :(

Last but not least !!! Raghuvaran Comedy video...

Good night!

Tere bina zindagi se koi - Aandhi

Tere Bina Zindagi se koi

Kishore Kumar / Lata another best with RD Burman's magic.


Tere bina zindagi se koi shikwa to nahin
Shikwa nahin, shikwa nahin, shikwa nahin
Tere bina zindagi bhi lekin zindagi to nahin
Zindagi nahin, zindagi nahin, zindagi nahin
Tere bina zindagi se shikwa to nahin
(Ji mein aata hai tere daaman mein
Sar chhupaake hum rote rahe, rote rahe) - 2
Teri bhi aankhon mein aansuon ki nami to nahin

Tere bina zindagi se koi shikwa to nahin
Shikwa nahin, shikwa nahin, shikwa nahin
Tere bina zindagi bhi lekin zindagi to nahin
Zindagi nahin, zindagi nahin, zindagi nahin
(Tum jo keh do to aaj ki raat
Chaand doobega nahin, raat ko rok lo) - 2
Raat ki baat hai, aur zindagi baaqi to nahin

Tere bina zindagi se koi shikwa to nahin
Shikwa nahin, shikwa nahin, shikwa nahin

Tere bina zindagi bhi lekin zindagi to nahin
Zindagi nahin, zindagi nahin, zindagi nahin

Tere bina zindagi se shikwa


What i like the most about the song is the feel it creates when i listen to it.See how decent the lyrics are as it shows the affection both has

Ji mein aata hai tere daaman mein sar chhupaake hum... rote rahe... rote rahe
Teri bi aankhon mein aansuon ki nami to nahin....

Tum jo keh d to aaj ki raat chaand doobega nahin... raat ko rok lo...

This songs reminds me of several personal feelings i have in store for... which me to listen to this song atleast once a day...

Fine... lets close this post with the same feeling!

Extreme Machines- Kicking horse shoe pass

This is about the Extreme machine-Wheels of steels

In this you can see the Canadian Pacific railway covers steep Kicking Horseshoe pass(KHP) as the train circles around the tunnel coming from underneath, it appears as if they are 2 trains but it is the same train that comes...

WDP4 Locomotive

Today we're gonna see about Wide Diesel Passenger 4 locomotive shortly dubbed as WDP4 an indian version of 4000HP diesel locomotive!
Brought into Indian railways (IR) through Transfer of Technology (ToT) from Electro Motive Division (EMD) of General Motors USA model EMD GT46PAC.Passenger version is called WDP4 and Goods version WDG4.

India's first WDP4 20000 original EMD make hauling Hyderabad-Chennai express

This loco is highly capable diesel locomotive in IR loco roster capable of pulling 24 coach train upto 110-120 KMPH, Main reason behind my impression on this loco is the characterstic aircraft like sound from the massive V16 engine.

With Udayan Express listen to this beast notching up at 0:44 just like a jet aircraft!

First i happened to see this loco in action in Guntur-Hyderabad
section where it used to pull Hyderabad express, Sabari express etc.this loco surely is termed fondly as beast, monster, king of diesel, diesel god! from any railfan seeing this loco in action.WDP4 was brought into India in 2006 in SCR, KR (South Central Railway, Konkan Railway) and in the sections of Hubli and vas co to pull heavy mineral ore up the hill section,recently WDP4 entered into SR (Southern Railway) where it is doing honors of pulling Pandian Express, Nellai Express, Guruvayur Express etc.Youtube has many videos of first day first run of WDP4 with pandian blasting more than 100+ KMPH near Mambalam / Guindy stations. I once saw this loco pulling lalbagh express to banglore thundering with horns blarring so loud you can hear them a mile away!

Though the video is 50 secs long, the whole train just took 20 seconds to clear the view, i doubt the MPS for the section is only 90 KMPH, this monster surely would have done more than 100 KMPH.

Just listen to the cattle prod like horn loud enough to awake you up from good morning sleep. Pandian Express departing from mambalam station to reach Egmore.

It is said to be most fuel efficient locomotive with milage of 0.25 KMPL with less smoke from 2 stroke EMD engine. This loco can be MU'ed upto 5, all locos operating in tandem powered by EMD2000 computer,with automatic wheel slip detection
computer can increase adhesion by applying sanding,This youtube video is an example of computer controlled wheel slip, to increase tractive effort, the wheels are made to slip on purpose.There is no doubt that this loco is called beast!

With road number starting 20000 till 20009 are imported from USA, now these have gone upto as far as 20100, indigenious production was undertaken by Diesel Loco Works,Varanasi as traction motors supplied by Siemens, Alternator by Kirloskar,20012 was nicknamed "BAAZ" with very different livery and fiberglas frame,the blue colour livery with orange stripe is BAAZ,you can see it in screenshot below

See how devastating WDP4 can be...

If u want to drive this locomotive, MSTS (Microsoft Train Simulator) can be a good idea,as add-ons developed by many hard working railfans made this possible, Thanks to them here! :)

some screen shots here...

From my personal experience i can tell you, what other rail fans tell is true,Yes! it's a beast! you dont find much when you notch 1,2 but at notch 3 you feel the shear pick up, as it accelarates very quickly, you have that feeling things are happening very quick, that too while driving LHF (Long Hood First) with the driver cab at the back, there are 2 protrutions that would hinder your view; one being the Dynamic braking grid and the radiator grill at the end, many a times you could miss a signal due to poor visiblity.Recently there was a story in CNN-IBN highlighting this major issue.What i say is that it is not a design issue as this loco is designed as per US standards, We are using it in other way :(

What i could suggest is that railway can implement turn-table as it was used for steam engines to reverse or use Wye placement tracks so that we can reverse and change the direction.Indian Railways are always in denial mode of poor visiblity, Ofcourse it is not the design fault as this loco is designed by US standards and in US they always drive a loco SHF (Driver Cab in the front).But i have seen in WDG4's which always runs in MU mode, they couple a loco at last facing back direction just in case if any problem they can pull out in SHF mode.
Why not for WDP4 be used in SHF using turntable/Wye i really don't know what is going on :( If Indian railways are in pride that not even a single accident as been reported with WDP4, then its time they realise it might happen any time.

Though with such a locomotive dont think your train might arrive before time...as tracks are not in good condition all over India and some way or other there are speed restrictions which blocks continous running.

Have a safe journey!
