Sounds on Thursday 156: ‘Talkin’ India’ by Michel Montecrossa

By: MiraSG

Continuing the Sounds on Thursday blog post series with the studio version of ‘Talkin’ India’ by Michel Montecrossa

Song Lyrics

TALKIN’ INDIA
(From Corruption To Ecology There’s Another Side To Everything)

India has a role to play in the world / free from corruption, injustice and suppression, / to be an example for the earth and man of democracy and politics that can.
Today it is rich and poor at once / standing on the crossroads of new endeavors / where demons of the past are no longer there but the vision of a continental green tomorrow.
Each nation carries a future dream / and India can make it real: / The industries of renewable energy, / the green revolution of freedom and peace,
ecology and economy in harmony / with a world of fair wages and good jobs, / a solar continent with no radioactivity / and cars that are run by electricity,
horizontal farming and vertical farming / together creating green cities of tomorrow, / wind and water and tidal energies / overcoming food and energy fears.
India has a role to play in the world / with clean water and air and wildlife forests, / with pollution control and smart energy consumption / and a democracy showing what it wants.
India has a role to play in the world / free from corruption, injustice and suppression, / to be an example for the earth and man
of democracy and politics that can.

Death in Venice

There’s a cocktail bar in Islington where they have a poster of the film Death in Venice behind the bar. Every time I go there I have a Death in Venice cocktail, and each time I tell myself that I will re-read the book by Thomas Mann, because the last time I read it I was still in secondary school.

I went there last night as part of our belated wedding anniversary dinner (only about four months late on account of the coronavirus lockdown) and I asked the bar tender if she minded me taking a picture of the part of the bar with the film poster. I know it was silly but it is a good poster, a good bar and a good cocktail, and I wanted to take a picture for years:

There was never any hope of the photo coming out good… but I took it anyway.

Most unexpectedly, the bar tender then gave me a present – a book about the history of the bar, complete with the recipes of some of their signature cocktails. I really like the book actually, it’s got some great photos. And I don’t think anybody ever gave me a present for no reason before, so I felt really touched. Obviously, I had to have a second Death in Venice!

So now I’m reading Thomas Mann. 

Have you ever been inspired by a cocktail to read a book?

Short Story: Oral Tradition

Cold water lapped at her toes while warm sand cradled her back. Although her body was lax, her keen eyes read the stars in the night sky.

Every family had their traditions. Hers was an oral story passed from one generation to the next.

Once a century, a gateway appeared which allowed land dwellers to join an annual bazaar under the sea. For generations, her family had traded at this obscure event, exchanging common items that can only be found on land for rare treasures that were in abundance underwater. Through this centenary transaction, they accumulated the wealth that built up their family.

But of her generation, she was the only one left who believed the gateway was true.

Dismissing the bazaar as a fable, none of her cousins even bothered to turn up. It was just her and her immediate family at the empty beach, and they only came to keep her company.

Even if she was wrong, all she would lose was just one night. But if she was right, she wouldn’t need to work for the rest of her life. She was more than happy to take that chance.

Among the ocean of stars, she found three purple sparks, lined in an arc over the horizon. Their mirror image in the sea completed the circle.

It was the gateway.

She jumped to her feet. Just like in the stories, she stretched her right hand out towards the circle, fingers curved as if she was digging her tips into a sponge wall. She turned her hand clockwise, using her fingers like a key to open a passageway into the heart of the sea.

She turned back to her stunned family, teeth flashing in the dark as she smiled.

“Let’s go.”

~End~
