It has been a week since I've been watching the ice bucket challenge videos on my Facebook feed. While I support the ALS cause and also, think that the challenge is a great way to grab people's attention to contribute towards the cause, I have to say the message conveyed is kind of contradictory.
On one hand the challenge supports a great cause while on the other, it tends to encourage people to waste water. The creators of this challenge could have come up with a more creative approach for this cause. I know it's easier said than done but, its definitely something worth thinking about.
Because of all these reasons, I decided to take a slightly different challenge which I would like to call as the Charukesi Challenge. What I did was I took one of the difficult compositions in raaga/mode Charukesi and made a cover version out of it using my vocals. Here's the popular Malayalam song, Hey Krishna from the movie, Kizhakkunarum Pakshi composed by the late Raveendran maash and originally, sung by K S Chitra. Do listen and let me know what you think.
