Was that in 2005??? I remember seeing some bits on TV & then reading a lot about the BIG event in the newspapers.

Built in the 12th century. No its not being renovated...the bamboo structure you see in this pic as far as I know was set up to for some big Jain event sometime back...during which milk, saffron & other stuff is poured on the Gomatheswara...chk the wiki for more info.

Marlee said...

Hey, totally love the little bird...discovered this song in ur Blog today...have kept ur Blog open and have been listening to this song for most of the evening! Though I have this song on my phone, havent actually taken time to listen to it. Never really liked Abhijeet, guess that has to change with this song! :)

Ricky said...

Hey Marlee, I also come to this blog to listen to this song especially. ***Same Pinchhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh***

P.S: Btw, doesn't this little birdie look like our little girlie ;)

ektaran said...

Marlee & Ricky
Which bird are you guys talking about??

I too like the song...but, then this can never lead to me liking Mr. Sawant.....his bad luck.

Celestine said...

Ricky said...

esnips birdie :D

Marlee said...

Mehak, give him a chance! :-p
I can't sleep and the first thing I did getting online was to open ur Blog...I havent stopped listening to him the entire day either. Yeah, too much of everything is BAD! :)

The esnips birdie is adorablly cute, so the fact that u resemble the bird is a compliment! :-D

Marlee said...

Oi, Ricky *same pinch* to u dude!

ektaran said...

Celestine
Thanks :)

ektaran said...

Marlee
I resemble the esnips birdie...you are kidding, right?

Mera itna mazaak kabhi kisse ne nahin kara...:((

I've given this song a chance....Mr. Sawant ko koi chance nahin milega....he won II by fluke...yaa lekin kismat, luck bhi hai...

YAAAA toooo much of 'everything' is bad...so babes move on to some other song now....

Marlee said...

Mehak...LOL...guess wat im doing now? REMIXING? Wat u might ask? Timbaland's "The Way I Are" & Amit Sawant's Junoon...its sounding really stupid! :-))

Oi, that wasn't a mazaak...it was a compliment...ur one of the nicest n the cutest friends I met through the net! :-D
