AaShai Mugam from Remixed Iyer girls

First listen to this song in Youtube : 

I dont have any complaints about the music, and it doesn't mean that I liked it completely.

This is the first message from the Music Choreographer  “Shankar Tucker” (ST)
To preemptively address any arguments about pronunciation, there are different dialects of Tamil, in which the lyrics can either be pronounced "Ashai Mugam" or "Asai Mugam".
Shankar Tucker

I am really happy that ST knows that he is doing a mistake WANTEDLY and to be on the safer side he has given the two line explanation about the slip (lisp).

ST is no Freaking god to change the dialects or invent a new dialect in tamil. Its completely stupid, if people do not know the language or the way how the words should be pronounced. I am sure that ST is having more of information and less of knowledge which leads to such stupid albums.

The moment I hear the words Ashai Mugam Maranthu pochey, I started thinking about “Collector Durai”. Why would someone think of Robert William Ashe (ஆஷ்) , Was he So Smart ? He is one among the thousands of Britishers responsible for all the ills, poverty and ignorance in india, and finally killed by the great martyr Vanchinathan Iyer.

Is that connection what made the Iyer Girls to sing “Ashai” Mugam.

No, wait wait.. thoughts shifted to Arthur Ashe (ஆஷ்). A  great Tennis player who remains to be the only black  man to win the Wimbledon championship.

I am sure that the Great “Mahakavi bharathi” never in his dreams would have written about Robert william Ashe (ஆஷ்) or Arthur Ashe (ஆஷ்).

To me its a pure act of 

  • Deliberate mispronunciation for laughs 
  • Deliberate cruelness to language
  • Deliberate Lisp


  • A person with No knowledge about language
  • A person who is Physically challenged (Not able to pronounce words correctly)


  • An attempt to defame Mahakavi Bharathi
  • An attempt to defame the language Tamil

  • A Publicity Stunt
  • A Negative Publicity

ST and the singers should refrain from maligning the compositions and concentrate more on singing perfectly than trying these stupid "Re-Mix".
