Rising STAR – ADELE

A deep, raw voice holds your attention for a while, making you wonder what the song and music is all about?   Then you want to listen to some more songs, and start paying attention to the lyrics and by the time you have heard 2-3 songs, she consumes you! Yes that is what Adele’s voice and songs do to you. Its an addiction you can’t get rid off! And must say this young 23 year old singer is extremely talented, along with her powerful vocals, she can also play the guitar, piano and percussion and the keyboard.

The songs that she writes makes one ruminate about how deeply she was in love and with what intensity she hates her ex! Her song reflects varied emotions of anger, revenge, heartbreak, self-examination and finally forgiveness. Not to mention her voice leaves an awe-inspiring and splendid effect on the listener. She has sung each song with great intensity and that translates into her voice and reaches your heart. Sort of pierces it through. You can feel the pain and anguish in the songs and wonder, such a talented & blessed person has gone through love-crisis and the best part of it all, it made her what she is today.

Unlike other artists who sell skin apart from theirs songs, and which of course is a talent, Adele has a very unassuming attitude and has a very mellow look on her face. At 23, Adele has achieved a great amount of recognition, fame and success. She won 2 Grammy Awards for her debut album in 2009 and in 2011 she won 3 Grammy awards – for record of the year, song of the year and best female pop vocal performance. In all she has won 24 awards thus far, which I am sure is a great achievement for any artist.

To sum it up, I would say, music industry gets yet another gifted and talented artist. Wishing Adele all the luck and success all through her career!

Christmas is here!!!!

Well well it is that time of the year when cool breeze kiss your cheeks, Mr. Sun says good morning a little later than his usual time, your winter wear are all out of the closet and yes it is time for CHRISTMAS! As a kid Christmas used to be and still is the most awaited festival of the year. You get new clothes, Secret Santa gifts, lots of sweet dishes, the yummy mummy special plum cake, Christmas carols, friends and relative visiting you, putting up the Christmas star,  decorating the house and the ecstasy remains throughout the month.

People commonly associate Christmas with partying and merry making, as wine and cake and other hard drinks are a part of it, and also because it is followed by New Year. So from media to sponsors, to event organizers everyone makes the most of it and ensure that they get a share of their cake, publicity :P. But honestly, Christmas is not just about partying or shopping. It has a very significant message that people often tend to miss out. The season of Advent which marks the beginning of Christmas starts from the last Sunday of November or the first Sunday of December (which ever falls on or before December 1st). Advent is a Latin word which means coming and is absolutely apt as Christmas is coming :). Jesus the son of God, was born in a manager, in grueling conditions with animals and shepherds surrounding him. Here, the message that Christmas gives out to people, is that one should be humble and try to reach out to the needy. one necessarily doesn’t need to donate money to be humble, but simple acts like extending a helping hand if you see a visually impaired person trying to cross the road, offer your seat to an old person standing in the bus, do not waste food, give the excess to someone in need. There are loads of small things that one can do to celebrate the true essence of Christmas.

Even as a kid, amidst all the thrill and excitement, Mum always told, this Christmas don’t ask Santa for a gift, but gift someone in need and do a humble deed. It is only then you are actually celebrating Christmas. On this note, I wish all my blog buddies and everyone around A very joyous & blessed Christmas 😀
