    Lyricist Vaali passes away



    Lyricist Vaali passes away


    Lyricist Vaali, who secured a place on a par with Kannadasan at a time the latter strode like a colossus in the Tamil film music world, died in Chennai on Thursday evening.

    i think vali is a great poet.

    but not on par with kannadasan. kannadasan had a wider and wiser perspective and was much more broad in his outlook. and skillwise too, kannadasan, outshone vali. i think so.

    this is not to demote vali's greatness, but i think there was no need to compare with kannadasan. unnecessary. and wrong.

    Vaali is certainly comparable to Kannadasan. Both of them were great poets. Vaali was in no way lesser than Kannadasan in his literary talents. Both of them had a weakness for alcohol. But then may be they looked for mind expansion-poor souls. Kannadasan started as an atheist mouth piece of DMK and converted to an acidic criticism of the same party. He became a believer and wrote poems in praise of Umai the presiding deity of his native place. Vaali was always a believer and produced some of the best literary works. I like vaali's capacity to write Venpaa in Tamil which is comparatively difficult task. Vaali was just great.

    Lyricist Vaali passes away

    Poet Vaali was a great poet and a successful lyricist in the lines of Papanasam Sivan, Pattukkottai Kalyansundaram, Udumalai Narayana Kavi and Kannadasan in the Film music. He has left a great number of songs to his fans and listeners. His death has certainly makes a void in the Cinema music.
    My prayers to Almighty to give strength to the family members of Vaali to bear this irreparable loss.
    May his soul rest in peace.

    Brahmanyan,
    Bangalore.

    dear SS,

    i am sort of intrigued by your statement, 'one shudders to think of other fate of other famous personalities who are in their ripe old age and ailing with age related health issues'.

    pray forgive me sir, why are you shuddering about their fate? is it about death that bothers you? you might as well say it openly, instead of using innuendos, which sound frighteningly ominous. i too shuddered when i read you note, wondering what there was to shudder about at first, and then imagining the worst of calamities, and shuddered more.

    then calmness set in, and i realized, that you are talking of death. it will come to all of us, sooner or later, and i think, we should all welcome it as a release from this world of sorrows and joys..

    endless time has passed since the first human died. i saw my parents die. ditto for maternal grandparents. one minute they breathe, and the next, they dont. personally, my only prayer for myself and my beloveds, is a quick and easy death. whatever that happens, we dont know, but you may want to ensure that you recycle into another human(?) while some others may be salivating over the prospect of 75 virgins

    dear SS, not to worry.. what will happen will happen. que sera sera. it is all beyond our control. ok?

    For a person who sees the transientness of human life often in line of duty...I feel when anyone dies even if he is well known or unknown..talented or non talented..saint of sinner..human life is still a human life.

    So it does not really matter if Vaali was talented or on par or even better or lesser than Kannadasan or anyone else...the fact remains that for each human life lost we can only pray for their souls to rest in peace...there are many people who die daily..we do not know any of them...every life has value not only the famous.

    folks,

    in this day and age, what is a good age to go?

    70? 75? 80?

    none of us would like to overstay our welcome as a guest in any household. i would imagine, that the same rules apply to planet earth, where we are but birds of passage.

    what happens if we get sick beyond redemption and we are 70? can the society decide that we are a burden, and pull the plug on us?

    or i am 90, and heldhy (umm healthy?) ..and the society, can it decide that i am a freeloader, and snuff me out (painlessly and unknowingly ofcourse)?

    we have now folks in canada, who worked barely for 30 years and getting pension for 40+ years, and handsome ones at that too. someone has to pay for it, and is it fair to put this burden on the youth, who nowadays can barely get a decent job, let alone a decent salary. in canada.?

    "Is there a man with soul so dead..................."

    Human life always remains an unfinished beautiful painting.
