Mudhal Mazhai – Tamil Song from the movie Bheema

I’ve been trying to do a tamil song for a while but somehow nothing worked out. Sriram recently covered this song and was kind enough to share the k track with me. Thanks Sriram for that! I like most of Harris Jayaraj’s work and this is my fav song from the movie Bheema. My first tamil cover on Muziboo 🙂

This k track already had the female vocals.

All you tamil folks out here, my apologies well in advance for murdering your language.

My Home Network

As promised, here is a brief description of my home network. My entire infrastructure is based on VMware ESX server.

For those of you who are not familiar with VMware, they are the leaders when it comes to server virtualization solutions. Server virtualization in a nutshell is the concept of hardware abstraction whereby you can place multiple workloads on a single physical server thereby leading to much more efficient usage of hardware resources. In the past, most corporate networks had a one to one mapping between applications and servers. Now with server virtualization, you can place multiple application workloads on a single physical server. This also leads to reduced cost in cooling, reduced data center space requirements, reduced power consumption, reduced hardware costs, less administrative overhead.

I currently have one physical server, an HP DL380 G3 with two Xeon 3.06Ghz processors, 6 GB RAM and 3 72 GB SCSI HDDs in RAID 5 configuration thus giving me a net storage capacity of about 140 GB. As of today, I have the following virtual machines running on this physical server:

  • Windows Server 2003 Domain Controller for the internal domain –
  • Windows Server 2003 running Microsoft Exchange 2003 – Accepts mail for,,
  • Citrix Presentation Server 4.5 hosting applications such as Microsoft Office, Various administration applications etc.
  • Citrix Secure Gateway 3.1 for remote access into the Citrix farm.
  • Windows Server 2003 template for additional servers if required.
  • Windows Server 2008 template.

So in short, I have 6 virtual servers/workloads running on 1 physical server sharing the available resources.

In addition to this, I have another workstation that is used to host my website, photo gallery and my wordpress based blog.It is Windows XP machine running Apache, MySQL and PHP. This is a low end PC that I bought a long time back with just 512 megs of RAM, but it works like a charm.

I have only one public IP and since I have multiple resources to publish externally, I take advantage of virtual host headers in apache which allows you to distinguish resources based on the incoming host header request. The various resources published via Apache are:

Currently, I have a flat network and dont do any fancy routing with multiple VLANs etc, but in the coming months, I plan to segment my network based on functional role.
That is my network in a nutshell. Feel free to email me should you have any questions. I am planning to post a few pics soon.

Heal the World

I recently updated my lab at home and decided to move my blog from Blogger to WordPress. I will post details of my setup later, but for the time being, here is the latest cover I have worked on. An old favorite of mine and a song that most of you should be familiar with. Michael Jackson is truly one of a kind. There will never be another MJ. I sang this back when I was in 8th grade and decided to do it again for old times sake. Enjoy (or atleast try to 🙂 )

Ek Ladki Hai (Original Composition by Shashank Gokhale)

This is a song composed by Shashank Gokhale. I got introduced to Shashank through Muziboo. I really like his compositional and lyrical skills. This is the second song we have collaborated on.

Here is a short description about the song in Shashanks words:

“Composition is about portraying the feelings in the form of song which you can imagine…But writing a song on real life girl is really very very tough task….I took 8 years to do that…I was able to make something on a girl which is in my life forever…Though I fell its not that good and I can do 1000 times better than this… 😀 but I wanted to upload this on Muziboo…

I thought of writing English Song to express the feeling…but TRUTH is my feelings can be portrayed in HINDI language… 😀 and I think I couln’t have write that well in English…So kept that option for future…

I hope people would like it and yeah the Girl also for whom I tried writing this song…”

A special thanks once again to Sunny for arranging the music. Thanks to Shashank for giving me this opportunity.

Written and Composed by : Shashank Gokhale
Guitar by: Shashank Gokhale
BG music : Sunny
Main and Backup Vocals – George Kuruvilla


Ek Ladki hai Sabse juda, Kuchh alag si hai usaki adaa

Ankho mein hai chaht bhari, Usake jaisi maine deki nahi ||Main||

Khud ke dil se ek din bas lad zhagad ke

Usane kahe saare Dil ke raaj

Mai to Har pal usako hi chahata tha

Na jane q samaza mai dil ki baat

Kya pal tha vo q dhal gaya

Ek raaj khulane se sab badal gaya ||1||

Apane khabo mein mujhko dekhti hai

Batein na usaki hogi kuchh bhi kum

Mere kandhe pe vo jab sir rakhati hai

Usaki aankhe to ho jati hai Num

Ek alag si usaki duniya

Lekin duniya ki hai apani kahaniya ||2||

Home (Michael Buble Cover)

I’ve been doing a lot of rock and hindi lately that I’m beginning to forget my elements 🙂 So here is one on the softer side that I love. Its probably the most recognized song by Michael Buble. I would strongly encourage everyone to listen to his stuff as he is really gifted. Do listen and post your feedback.


Another summer day
Has come and gone away
In Paris and Rome
But I wanna go home

May be surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel all alone
I just wanna go home
Oh, I miss you, you know

And I’ve been keeping all the letters that I wrote to you
Each one a line or two
“I’m fine baby, how are you?”
Well I would send them but I know that it’s just not enough
My words were cold and flat
And you deserve more than that

Another aeroplane
Another sunny place
I’m lucky, I know
But I wanna go home
Mmmm, I’ve got to go home

Let me go home
I’m just too far from where you are
I wanna come home

And I feel just like I’m living someone else’s life
It’s like I just stepped outside
When everything was going right
And I know just why you could not
Come along with me
‘Cause this was not your dream
But you always believed in me

Another winter day has come
And gone away
In even Paris and Rome
And I wanna go home
Let me go home

And I’m surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel all alone
Oh, let me go home
Oh, I miss you, you know

Let me go home
I’ve had my run
Baby, I’m done
I gotta go home
Let me go home
It will all be all right
I’ll be home tonight
I’m coming back home

Let It Be (Beatles Cover)

I dont think this song needs an introduction. One of the most popular Beatles song, it talks about leaving our problems behind and moving on. I would also like to mention that the “Mother Mary” he is referring to is his mother Mary and not Mother Mary. It is always scary to cover classics such as this one, but I just had to 🙂

This song is dedicated to my AMMA (mother). It happens to be one of her favorite songs and grew up listening to it. This is for you Amma!


When I find myself in times of trouble, mother Mary comes to me,
speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me,
speaking words of wisdom, let it be.

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be.
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.

And when the broken hearted people living in the world agree,
there will be an answer, let it be.
For though they may be parted there is still a chance that they will see,
there will be an answer. let it be.

Let it be, let it be, …..

And when the night is cloudy, there is still a light, that shines on me,
shine until tomorrow, let it be.
I wake up to the sound of music, mother Mary comes to me,
speaking words of wisdom, let it be.

Let it be, let it be, …..
