[Review-in-Brief]~Neon Nagaram! :)

When it’s not easy to lead a normal life, imagine how it would be to do the same if you suffered from a disorder such as OCD. OCD or the Obessive Compulsive Disorder is a condition wherein anxiety takes control over human action. A person diagnosed with an OCD would be under the compulsion of doing tasks repeatedly or have repeated thoughts, feelings or behavior patterns.

“Neon Nagaram” tells us the story of Vinay, the protagonist who suffers from this anxiety disorder and how he succeeds in life in-spite of all the challenges that life presents before him – his lady love Madhu and his career as a sound engineer taking top priority.
The novel which is in Tamil (I cannot read Tamil, so a friend translated the same to me 🙂 ) uniquely captures the ups and downs in the life of Vinay – his childhood, his confusions, his career, his quarter-life crisis – while on the other hand dealing with his survival in the music industry as he fights against plagiarism.

“Neon Nagaram” is not just a novel but its a musical-novel. The book comes along with a DVD of 17 wonderful songs expressing the moods and happenings of Vinay’s life.
Shammeer – the author who is a music composer himself – has done a wonderful job with the book as he shares what seems to be a real life story of a sound engineer. His music band Paadhai which has composed the music for the album has managed to weave the songs pretty well in a very interesting manner around the theme/story that the book encloses.

My rating: Book – 4/5  Music – 4.5/5

You can purchase the book at a discounted price @ Flipkart – HERE

Pain is Good…. (Ranam Sugam…)

My eyes shed tears, when they don’t get to see you..
Music is silence to my ears, when they don’t get to hear you…
Down the memory lane, it’s more and more of pain…
In your remembrance, my world’s shrunk smaller again…

My half is in your darkness…
Your half is in my brightness…
I’m dying for a glimpse of your eye…
Without seeing you, I’m sure I would die…
The ticking clock breaks silence, nine times along…
For now I’m rewinding time, to see where I went wrong…

The day seems never ending, without your presence…
While the night gets lonelier, due to your absence…
The poetry seems to end, even before the first rhyme…
While your anger over me, grows infinitely with passing time…

Pain is good…
This pain is good…
With you beside me, even this agony’s like a blessing!! 🙂
