A strange thing happened last week. Over and above the din of financial markets crashing around the world, we could hear a strange chanting from across the Arabian sea. It kept getting stronger and stronger..until we could hear it oh so very clearly. “makka Idli jaayi…makka Idli jaayi” !!
Curious to know more, we checked the amchigeleuae yahoo group. There too, we saw the same “makka Idli jaayi..makka Idli jaayi” !!
And then it hit us. The UAE Amchis were all eagerly waiting to hear their local celebrity singer Harish Pai on Radio Idli!!
Here it is then, a weekend treat for the UAE amchis and indeed, for all of us music lovers!
Kehna Hai – Harish Pai | Upload Music
Originally from mumbai, Harish has been living in Dubai for the past 13 years. He is currently working for FedEx as Senior credit Controller. Friendly & soft-spoken, Harish is very popular in the local GSB circle for his amazing singing talent. He was a semi-finalist in Zee TV’s Sa Re Ga Ma Pa World series.
We thank Harish for sharing this track “kehna hai…” with us.
St(r)eaming hot idlis, served from all the way across the Arabian sea!
