My London Connection.........
Mmm long time that I am dying to write this…well finally I made it….
Guess whats cooking? Well this time it is MUSIK, people. So ja….what Is wrong with me..isn't it? Well nothing serious, just getting bored of the mundane things that made up my Chennai Life I guess so decided to do something interesting and guess what did I get my hands on this time “ a V I O L I N ”…just wanted to kill time…..But it is rather killing all the people who bear an audience (by chance or by choice).Well that’s what they feel my music does to them….well to call it music is sin….in the first week it was noise, slowly it was almost noise and now, after a couple of months it is almost like music now… for its metamorphosis into absolute music, I am sure there is long way..God bless me and all the people around me till I reach there, haha.
Well the first song I was made to play was…. Haha “London Bridge is Falling Down”, and apparently my only London-connection. As I was toiling hard to get the A’s and the A #’s right, I remember, my mama said “I am sure it would fall, If this is how you are going to play….” Maaan beginning with music is difficult and that too with a violin…phew.
Then what interested me then later was the History of the Bridge…well found out that the Bridge has a loooong , interesting History, a history of over 200 years…and was built and rebuilt so may times in its long loong history…The current London Bridge was designed by Mott, Hay and Anderson, constructed by contractors John Mowlem and Co from 1967 to 1972, and opened by Queen Elizabeth II on 17 March 1973.

And call it coincidence, just got some amazing first hand pictures of London bridge from my good chum “Dude”. She had made them when she went to London for an interview.. will update those picture in a few day… well my advice is to ignore the “Dude” and admire the bridge…hahahaha.
