Singing the success tune
Not all can sing and all those who can don't become singers. Blessed are those with a gifted voice and who make singing their career. And Roshini is one of the lucky few to strike the right chord.

Her consistent practice brought her to the limelight in just one foot-tapping son Pottu thaakku... Poottu thakku in the Simbu - starrer Kuthu, thanks to music director Srikant Deva.

Interestingly, the proverbial 'Catch them young' aptly fits Roshini, whose singing talents came to the fore with music director vidyasagar spotting her innate ability during 'Ragarangila' programme in Trichy.

How old was she then? She was in the fourth standard.

Joy knew no bounds for this young singer when Vidyasagar offered her a song in the film Aha Enna Porutham. Lady luck continued to smile on her with offers pouring in from several quarters. and she had to shunt between Tirchy and Chennai, which was not only tome-consuming but also laborious.

Says Roshini: 'I along with my mom and sister moved to Chennai.' Her father Joseph Kaliaperumal is a Tamil faculty in Tirchy college. No doubt the metropolis became an ideal place to improvise her skills besides getting offers'.

It is interesting to note that Roshini won the hearts of the audience besides commendation from the Rector at a function in Trichy St Joseph's College when she sang two songs at a tender age of three.

'The inspiration to sing was derived from my sister Anita Shalini who was a good singer', she said and added that she learnt classical music under the tutelage of Geetha Jayagopal while in Trichy and presently with Sakuntala Seshadri here in Chennai.

What are her other film songs? A small boy's song in K. Bhagyaraj's Vettieyai Madichikattu, Saravanan's Thayumanavan (Puyal adikkakandomey), a song with comedian vadivelu in the film Chankya and Pambarakannaley.

Roshini, a second year engineering student now, continues to get ofers for singing tracks in films as also for music directors S.A. Rajkumar, Mani Sharma (Telgu) and Jayachandran (Malayalam).

Her other credits wer 60 devotional song albums, Baduga language song album, Best Outstanding Performance Award by Good Shepherd School and non-stop music programme for Guinness Book of World Records.

With lots of stage performances, Roshini had paired with popular playback singers with the Sadaga Paravaigal music troupe.

Adding to the list include winning the singing contest prizes in Sapthaswarangal (Sun Tv) and Ragamaliga (Jaya Tv)

Other interest? She loves doing compering. To mention a few are Doordarshan programmes and phone-in programmes for local channels.

What are her plans after education? Pat comes reply 'Find a suitable job and devote myself to singing'. Her mom adds, 'if she gets a break, Roshing will certainly make singing her career'.

The spark could be seen already in Roshini's face. Hope she succeeds.
