I wrote, composed and sang this song during the Corona lockdown when I was in Kolkata with Guha in 2019. My friend Venkatesh DC (Venky), who is an accomplished musician, did the music arrangement in his studio in Bengaluru.
I had given up singing and music for 13 years when I met Guha in October 2016. I was completely out of practice and my voice was shaky and hoarse. He soon found out that I was a trained singer and started encouraging me to sing. He would make me sing in front of his friends very often and announce to everybody how good I was. I noticed he would close his eyes and conk out every time I sang. He would tell me, “You have something in your voice. You start singing, I close my eyes and I am out.” Since then I have recorded numerous songs. My voice, as I know it, has never sounded better.
It is an oasis in the desert of humanity I stumbled upon by chance, that took away my misery In the desert of humanity ... it is an oasis When I was suffering I didn't know what I was missing I know not what happened to me Other than his company In the desert of humanity ... it is an oasis This seclusion magnificent! Oh what a resonance! Each cell, each neuron singing its own song I am the greatest witness of this cosmic symphony No one can hold a candle to it Not even Bach or Beethoven Now you see what I mean when I say I am in love with Nature And its protege, Oh G!
