Creative Spot by Mahendra (Speedy) Gonsalkorale


Another musical contribution from me.

The song I sing is "Rani Enko", which I am sure  you will recall with pleasure. The original hindi song on which it is based, was from the B&W film Patita (1953). The song was sung by Hemant Kumar and Lata Manjeskar. The Sinhalese version "Rani Enko" was sung by that great combination Rukmani Devi and Mohideen Baig. This is my effort accompanying myself on my Yamaha Tyros 5.

  3. It's all my fault. I modified Speedy's original post because I wanted to get the video thumbnail to appear so that the video will start when you click on it. But alas! I forgot for a moment that the valuable comments will be lost when I replace the original with the new version.

  9. Glad you retrieved my comment, Mahendra!. This song takes us through various stages of our early years, medical days and then the occasional rare chance to listen to it. Now you have revived it and are doing a really great job. Rita

  10. Sorry my name keeps coming up as Rita. No I have not changed my name but it is thanks to 'Autocorrect' which is so determined to rename me. But I reaffirm my name as Zita (keep away Autocorrect!)

  12. There's a gal called Zita
    Sometimes known as Rita
    But nobody can beat her
    She's there when you need her

  13. Once she called herself "NITA".
    So it is Zita---> Nita----> Rita.
    Like a criminal with many Aliases???
    But she has a face of an angel and her poetry is as that of a Poet Laureate!!!.
    That's our own Zita.(no more synonyms .... please)
