Some Random trivia

Yesterday, I happened to watch videos on youtube which showed how "inspired" music directors like Pritam and Harris Jayaraj have become from other music directors round the world.

Pritam has lifted tunes from South Korean and Chinese albums ( all the songs from Gangster are "inspired" from korean albums!).

Well.. for one,I have never been a keen follower of music from different countries (domain restricted completely on Rehman, Shankar Eshan Loy n Jayaraj)

But now I have more direction for my joblessness... Trace South Korean songs! :P
Or befriend someone from South Korea :P :P

As the wiki entry for Kpop (Korean pop) reveals, it is something bigtime famous,but I was completely oblivious that something like that even existed !!

Hrithik Roshan and Rajnikanth have done a movie together... search in youtube for the same :P

Another trivia .. bit more serious...a random article I read on the web states this..

The United States is one of only a few countries in the world that permit children to be sentenced to LWOP(Life Without Parole). The Convention on the Rights of the Child, ratified by every country in the world except the United States and Somalia, forbids this practice, and at least 132 countries have rejected the sentence altogether. Thirteen other countries have laws permitting the child LWOP sentence, but, outside of the United States, there are only about 12 young offenders currently serving life sentences with no possibility of parole

Lol, if you listen closely, most of the songs by a few music directors have the same raaga. And, I totally encourage your idea of checking out South Koreans and their songs. Who knows? You might end up with someone really interesting ;)
