Bharathiyar songs - a good many of them sound better if sung at a faster tempo as they are basically about awakening your physical and mental sensibilities.

So, even though the artists here sing well, I would rather prefer baharathiyar song to be sung with some more fervour.

I happen to be the little girl who has sung in this video :) Thank you for posting this link!

But I'm unable to view it on Youtube any more. If you have posted the video on Youtube, could you please make it public? Or could you please e-mail the video to me?

Thanks!

P.S. My maiden name was Gayathri Bharathi.
