This song is very special for many reasons : One of the primary reasons being : It was the first song I ever composed. I had no idea that I could do this. This tune came to me one fine day when I was doing my riyaz and I penned down the notation. I pestered mom to write the lyrics for me! And my best friend and a wonderful guitarist, Radhika Anturkar added her ravishing flavour to make this song what it is today!
This year my birthday fell on a Friday, my music release day and I thought I should sing an unplugged of my own song to celebrate. Radhika’s serene guitars to support me, I sang my heart out and created this unplugged version of my first original composition : Saya Tujhi !
Saya Tujhi is an emotion remembering /something you love, eager to meet him/her/it. It is not necessarily a romantic feeling. 2 years later today, I see it as a feeling of longing of anything close to your heart. It can be about getting back at something you used to do it school/college as your passion and couldn’t continue doing, because life happened!
I fondly remember a reaction given to me by a listener when the song has just released, that she collected it to her grandma (Aajji) who had just passed away. It made my heart so warm.
Hope you can connect it with something close to your heart and you can get the सय of it! Would love to hear your experiences!
Also, today being my birthday, would like to seek your blessings and wishes and it would mean the world to me if you could listen to any one song from the list below as a gift to me!
