Life is a play... Veshangal - Cover

Lyrics & Chords

Hi Friends…

We often hear “Life is a play and we are the characters in it…” How true… We play so many characters in our life, that of a son/daughter, brother, friend, husband/wife and the list goes on and on… Never ends… Many a times we do not realize this…

This is a song which depicts the different roles we play in life… A soulful song composed by SA Rajkumar and sung by the great Dr. KJY… This song has very meaningful lyrics, which I am sure will make any man think for a while… Written by Sri Kaithapram Damodaran Namboodiri…

I am sure this in no ways would be anywhere near the original… My humble attempt to sing this one… Once again my sincere apologies for the issues with the recording as this was recorded at one stretch… There might be certain portions which are less heard… I was unable to equalize them during mixing either… This is the best I could do…

Movie Name: Vesham
Singer: Yesudas KJ
Music Director: Rajkumar S A
Lyrics: Kaithapram
Year: 2004

Please feel free to provide your inputs on this song and my singing. Hope you all like it… Thank you all in advance….

- Sushanth

Sushanth ….not familiar with the original….but it didnt stop me from enjoying the expressive rendition. I guess you gave that slight shakiness in your voice, to bring that pathos feel….liked it very much !!!
Interpretation is the revenge of the intellect upon Art ………….Susan Sontag.

Here are some of my interpretations …of originals I love

This was a soulful rendition, Sushanth. I didnt think there was any quiver in your voice, in fact thought you modulated well to bring out the pathos.Very good work – liked it a lot.
