Bulp Piction

Lakshminarasimhan reclined on his easy chair, Hindu newspaper in hand, filter coffee on a small side table, searching for something to outrage about. He was humming an Ananda Bhairavi korvai when his wife turned on the TV to watch a program where a small child was being made to cry by a snooty judge for getting the vibrato wrong on a classic AR Rahman song. His blood began to boil as the silhouette of his outrage took shape in his mind, slowly crystallizing into that most South Indian of rebellions against the establishment – the letter to the editor. This was wrong, he felt. Children should not be singing film songs at this tender age.

He closed his eyes and fantasized about invading the home of one of these modern day music directors who shamelessly stole from his beloved Carnatic music and proceeded to foully destroy all that was sacred in this world. He would walk up to that chap’s breakfast table, take a bite of the idli from his plate and dip it into that cornerstone of a healthy South Indian breakfast, the coconut chutney. He would wash it down with his filter coffee and proceed to give him a piece of his mind.

The letter began to take shape…but he was interrupted by someone whose ability to express outrage shone brighter than a thousand suns in the constellation of Ursa Major.

Listen on



This song was laid down with great vengeance and furious anger by
Harish – arrangement & programming
Ashok – violin & ambimama
TR – Counter outrage

    1. James don’t you think this is getting a bit old?

      Try :

      Hey I don’t know who you are but here is my number 9######### …call me maybe

  1. Hope this doesnt come off as patronizing, this is the best thing that I have read on this blog. Lakshminarasimhan FTW

  2. L Shankar has possibly long stopped using his violin. May be you should get hold of his double. Worthy heir.
    Very creative. Thank you. Please find more time for these pure joy.

  3. that ‘P’ and ‘B’ jumble of tamil…
    and that verse of gita…
    combined with this rumba nalla piece of music…
    awesome…simply awesome…:)

  4. Violin work was outstanding, so was TR’s attempt at composing song :P. Yet another gem into the crown of Team #ParadesyNoise. Well done, fellows! #ThumbsUp

  5. Nice one machi. Overall well produced. You built the platform so well you could have taken this further and produced an epic. Maybe next time.

  6. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell
    and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
