Zara Zara (RHTDM)

Lyrics & Chords

This was the first song that I had attempted to sing with a karaoke. I had lots of fun singing with a track for the first time. Unfortunalely, at that point being quite clueless about the whole mixing process, I just mixed my raw vocals with the track and saved it. I have been wanting to redo this song for a while and finally did so today. So here goes…. As always your feedback is welcome.
Disclaimer: Though am slightly better with mixing, am still pretty clueless!

Song: Zara Zara
Movie: Rehna Hai Tere Dil Mein (RHTDM)
Music: Harris Jayaraj
Original Singer(s): Bombay Jayashree
Cover by: Nandita

Very nice attempt Nandita…Beautiful voice…Nice variation but you r slight uncomfortable in low notes but High notes is very good plus a little more expression and feel would work.:)

awesome song pick and a wonderful rendition nandita….enjoyed it….minor timing issues??? (am not sure but I got that impression)….nevertheless…very very nice cover.


Harshan Nambiar Pro user said

Nandita …very good attempt at this catchy song. I thought your expression were all right, but your lower notes needs more tahravat. other than this was a great rendition.

5/5 from me ….keep it coming !!

Nandita, you have very sweet voice.
wonderfully singing ,would like to hear the tamil version “Vasigara” too.

All the very best,




Nandita said

Ahmed, Tara, Paras, Soumitra, Anup, Kuhoo, Harshan and Meena- Thank you so much for taking the time to listen, comment and point out areas of improvement. Glad you all enjoyed it. Have noted your suggestions. Yes, I do agree a few notes were shaky.
Regarding the lower notes- In general, this is the scale/range that I am most comfortable singing. Am not sure why the low notes sounded uncomfortable. Shall look into it :)

Very nice rendition. For a first attempt at singing and recording with a K-track, this is great. You have a nice voice and suited this song very well. Keep singing and sharing.



Nandita said

Thanks Kumar. A clarification: This particular recording is not from my first attempt (that was last october). I re-did this song yesterday :)

Ya Nandita!
I m just going to say this that.This was very good selection of scale/range which u sung infact no strain in higher notes.But this is the fact when we choose any scale and try to sing that kind of song which have already lower and higher notes so the problem will do happen with the notes…Its not a big issue with practice it works…
But i really enjoyed your singing :)


Adwait Ranade Pro user said

Wow Nandita,
Nice, effortless rendition of a difficult song. Liked your sweet voice and simply superb harkats and modulations in this one……
5/5 and goes to my favourites!
Enjoy Singing,
Adwait Ranade

Hi Nandita!!!
Good singing in terms of tune…. few places were shacky….as if very nervous or just shacking…. Practicing the straight notes can be a great help…. In mixing the voice could have been sharpened a bit more…. The treble of the track n voice is not matching. But great effort. This song has some beautiful memory with my life….n only memory exists…… Keep it up…. You re-vitalized my memories…. Thank you…. God Bless You……




Smitha Passanha said

Very well sung!!! At some places u were running out of breath……but other than that loved it! Also, u are much more at ease singing with karaoke now. So u should upload “Mujhe rang de” and “Kesariya” next so that everyone here can hear it….please please please :-) 5/5 for this one.

Nandita said

Thank you all for your comments and feedback. Glad you liked it.

Sai- I like the tamil version better too but don’t understand a lot of the lyrics so stuck to hindi.

Ahmed- Ya I understand what you mean. Thanks again.

Adwait- Thanks for liking and adding to favs.

Shampak- Thanks. The shaking is sort of inbuilt in the voice (more prominent in lower notes)- need to work on it. Thanks for the mixing tips. I only use audacity and the only thing I do for every song is add an echo of 0.2/0.2. Need to experiment more :).

Smitha- Thanks. Will do so soon.

Vijay- Welcome to my space. Thanks for commenting.

Nandita, superb performance! This is a song which haunts me for its sensuality. Your voice is your greatest asset-I liked your modulations.A slight hesitation in reaching the higher notes of both charanams is all that you have to take note of.
A five for you and taking this song with me!
Keep singing!


Nandita said

Thanks Rajeev. Will keep in mind your suggestions for improvement.

Dwarak – Thanks a lot. Glad you liked it.

Suhail – Thanks for writing in your frank feedback. As kabir says “Nindak niyare rakhiye, Angan kuti chawai, bin pani sabun bina, nirmal kare subhaiye (of course here the context is singing)”. Your comment would be more useful to me if you could specifically point out
a) the words that need improved talafuz and
b) the places were sur was off.

Hi Nandita!
Just came upon this Karaoke track on Net.
This song’s tune and music is always evergreen.
And you sung it really beautifully too.
You have a really good voice.
Are you a trained singer?? If not, be trained, and you will definitely sing for Bollywood.
All the best.
