Esha Deol Takhtani after making her debut as an author with Amma Mia has now made her singing debut with Ganesh Shloka with her mother Hema Malini and sister Ahana Deol Vohra.
They have come together for the first time to sing a devotional song, earlier the trio appeared on stage for their popular ballet “Parampara” but this is the first time that they will be singing . On the auspicious occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi they have recorded two tracks - “Pranamya Sirasha Devam” and “Vakratunda Mahakaya”,album name is Raja Ganapati, under the guidance of music director Dipesh Verma.
“ At the beginning of all our dance shows we always perform Vakratunda Mahakaya shloka to pay tribute to Ganpati and then start our performance. But this is the first time I along with my mother and sister rendered our voice to this shloka. First I was very apprehensive about my voice that how it will sound but once its recorded and I heard my own voice I am really happy and confident as far as singing is concerned and also it has come out fantastic. It was very difficult to record the songs from home as due to pandemic we couldn’t go to the studios and record but under the guidance of the music director and his team we have made it possible from home. We have shot the video at home and it was a wonderful experience,” says Esha .
She also adds, “ Vakratunda Mahakaya is extremely popular and very synonymous with Ganpati. I remember learning this shlok back in school. Not only that, before anything auspicious we usually say this prayer. This is my personal offering to Lord Ganesha,”
Recently Esha has made her debut in writing a book, she has penned her own childhood experience along with the recipes for toddlers which is very helpful to all the mothers, especially new mothers. Her debut book Amma Mia, published by Penguin India has released in March and already garnered exciting reviews from all the mothers from everywhere. It has not only the recipes but also has her journey from childhood to being a new mother with two beautiful daughters.
““I am overwhelmed that my first book Amma Mia is garnering such a positive response from all readers and reviewers across. I am thankful for showing love to a first time author and encouraging my humble effort.
Though the book was released in the middle of a pandemic and lockdown, its still receiving fabulous responses from mothers & even fathers for that matter. I am also happy to know that Amma Mia has inspired many mom's and authors who are also coming up with their own versions, but I am glad that my book Amma Mia is the first book of its kind in this genre.Every day many mothers are reaching out to me via social media and even personally on how my recipes have been a boon to them as they are so simple & that their kids are enjoying eating them .Children are our future and they deserve the best and as parents that is our foremost priority”, adds Esha.
