Illayaraja Paadalgal

Often people say that good music can relax your soul. People have different choices when it comes to the type of music which they feel relaxes them. But when it comes to tamilians, I can almost guarantee that 90% of people would agree with me that Illayaraja's melodies are soothing to the ears. During my college days, often during late nights, I would have my hostel room windows and later my house windows open, letting in the beautiful Tanjore breeze and Illayaraja's melodies playing on the radio or on my computer. That was one of the best relaxations I could ever have. Today again, I am doing the same, listening to some of Illayaraja's melodies. Illayaraja is a living genious, I am sure everyone would agree. :)


  1. Couldn't agree more. Although I was brought up listening to hindi film music, I have had the privilege of listening to this genius afew years ago. I was amazed. He along with RD Burman, has provided sheer listening pleasure to fans worldwide.

  2. Huh! You made a mistake with genius spelling I see, stuff I learned from your blog itself :)
