Ever imagined a Konkani song on a Hindi Karaoke track ? Listen to this song – original is a Hindi film song from ‘Meraa Saaya’ released in 1966, and sung by Smt. Lata Mangeshkar. But here we have a devotional song in Konkani. Perhaps some of you have heard a portion during some bhajan sessions, especially in and around Kochi. But this one, we are sure, is going to be a treat for your ears.

Editor’s Note: Shri Ramesh Pai Maam is a great support for us. It is very kind of him to share with his experience and guidance for our humble and young project. With firm knowledge of our heritage and culture, you will find him accepting and embracing newer trends and technology. His esnips folder with a great collection of Konkani bhajans is a treasure! We hope Ramesh-maam with his continued encouragement will help us showcase more hidden treasures of our Samaaj….. (nagesh pai)
