Sharing happy moment with you – Baltimore RathaYatra Video

Hi Friends,

Few Facts about the video(s) :

1. Some of the songs are from my native language Telugu(India) and Sanskrit mixed. Sanskrit is a historical Indo-Aryan language. And also Indian National Language Hindi song included. But based on the availability of the music, I also included Tamil, Kannada,…. for other videos.(You are all welcome to send a link or file of your native language instrumental music)

2. The starting and ending songs are from Bhagavath Gita by Telugu Legend Singer – Sri Ghantasala(Late). The title song is Annamyya keertana. Annamyya is widely regarded as the Pada-kavita Pitaamaha (Grand old man of song-writing) of the Telugu language. The major themes of his songs were spirituality (Madhura Bhakthi).

3. Showing my US state big city – Baltimore(Charming City).

4. Feelings of Non-Indians while watching this event – One young girl was dancing on the bridge while watching this event. Many people were asking about the event.

5. Most of the videos are with Indian background music – So everyone listening Indian music.

Now whoever is watching this video on YouTube will know about these.
