  12. Dear Anand n Shanti
    last time we met you all in Dubai Hamsika was just a year old. Since then she has come a long way by Baba’s Grace to become such a melodious singer at the age of 7 years!
    We were delighted listening to her singing the Sai Bhajan with such meaningful lyrics so clearly and sweetly. May God Bless you and the whole family.

  18. Well done Hamsika,

    This is Ramesh Uncle from Mumbai.Keep it up.We all pray that you render many Sai songs with his Blessings in the years to come.

  19. As the appreciative comments keep coming, i must confess being late in responding to your overwhelming responses, dear listeners.

    Thank YOu so much for your encouragement.

    @ Hamsika: It was really our greatest pleasure to host your performance. Many years down the line when you become a good performer, which we wish, You and I both of us can share this post with everyone.. what say?

    @Anand and Shanthi — I must thank you and ARuna-akka for taking all the efforts to record the song professionally which makes for such good content. Kindly do give us the opportunity to host Hamsika’s performances in the future. WE will eagerly await that.

  20. Every thursday i watch in amazement at this seven year old singing bajans at a sai gathering in deira. One of the remerkable features i found in her singing is the immense self confidence she has in carrying out the song as though she has learnt the song many years back. Secondly its the versitility in rendering different types of songs. Also its rare to see a singer singing in the right sruti from the harmonium at this tender age.

    Apart from the guidence of her parents who themselves sing extremely well, its the blessings of swami showered on her at this young age. Wishing her a bright future in the world of music!!

  21. Hello Hansika,

    I just happened to browse this amazing RI website specially dedicated to unite & uphold the values of our very enterprising Konkani(Saraswat)community.Glad I did that.

    It was pleasure listening to your excellent rendition of a beautiful Sai bhajan. May Shri Sai continue to grace you with melodius voice & give you lots of opportunities to sing His glory for every one to enjoy. Wish you also the very best in your educational pursuits.

  24. dear hamsika,
    your song is nice.your voice is good too.but let me tell you that it is no prodige.i myself know people who sing much better yet their talents remain undiscovered because they don’t have opportunity or the luck as you happens in india (maybe in many other countries ).remember there is no end to talent.keep up the good work.i believe you will become a very good singer someday.god bless!

  25. Well done Hamsika, you have already got the blessings of sai.
    You are lucky and your future is bright.

  26. Hi Shanti,

    It was very nice to see Hamsika singing. It think i heard her song after a long time. It was very sweet and amazing. Also do upload this song in facebook also. Take care and all the best to Hamsika.
