MTV YOUTH ICON NOMINATIONS

two weeks back, i got a call from Vaibhav Vishal at MTV Networks... 

this was to inform me that my name had come up in the final 30 candidates out of 8000, to be a nominee for this year's PEPSI MTV YOUTH ICON AWARDS 2008 ! Thought it was a 'bakra' at first, but then realised the blessing was truly heaven sent. Have never received an award nor nomination before, and honestly, the work is done because it has to be done... however it is a nice feeling to know the work is making a difference somewhere - sometime. So i'm honoured that the songs on issues and problems in our society, that we try to address through rhythm and poetry, and which have been a struggle in every step of the way, (as there is no record label support for 'real issues'), is being acknowledged. 

They have put together a few of my messages etc and it will be on air from tomorrow on MTV, and is already online at the site. The next blessing was that Mr. A R Rahman has also been interviewed and mentions his good wishes... wow.. i am so thankful, that i have not only mentioned it to him immediately, but have seen the clip about a million times already !

Would be great if you could check out the video, and enjoy the contest too...

It's all good... 

And oh yes, as president-elect Obama said, 'your vote counts...yes we can !' 

If you got a moment, do vote..
