Suno Na Sangmarmar, Ki Yeh Minarein

Did the makers of Taj Mahal see it as complete in itself, or a work in progress?

Like a painting or sculpture, no song is ever complete. It may take a lifetime to properly sing and bring a song to fruition.

The new bollywood songs have a  style of their own – high pitched, raw, sentimental. Sometimes one feels there is no head or tail to them.

Do not use them for everyday practice, or you will injure your vocal chords!

I am learning as well. The trick with high notes is to keep the jaws loose, so that the throat is put to work. It sounds better.

So this song too is imperfect… out of tune here, weak notes there… I will continue to sing it better.
