I have placed a new page on my official blog (selfies are a good record of one’s state of mind) – which contain some of the pictures I’ve taken during the making of musical and film achievements – a general history, some definite nostalgia – there are many pics missing from earlier years, which I’ll add when I find them – but… this was a bit of fun for me, and has brought back so much memory, struggle, triumph, sadness, joy and generally experiences that I’ve treasured — comments are welcome; and questions too, if you feel inspired.
I adore this song…. its just, beautiful – very elegant and such a sweet melody. I took the entire day and enjoyed singing… just simply recorded in my (unpadded) humble office – no sound equipment – just, Garage band and a set of headphones. I pray one day, I can record in a beautiful studio again…. if anyone listening/reading this post wants to give me that chance… don’t be shy – use the CONTACT form !

Backing track (these two wonderful musicians are hero’s in my book – revolutionizing the classically trained to do ‘out of the box’ work – they seriously rock – and I adore them – I hope my humble singing effort does justice to their beautiful work): 2CELLOS – Shape Of My Heart [OFFICIAL VIDEO]
Lyrics… read on:
Such a wonderful visit two weeks back, to Muscat, Oman – a truly magnificent country, that is a green well-manicured oasis of abundance. I will go back there again, without a doubt – I just fell in love with the place!
Relax as you view the pictures… music to soothe the soul…
To all my cyber friends the world over… May kindness prevail; and hearts unite in peace; children sleep without war or hunger.. Bless all, this day of celebrating the loving heart.
By request ~ For Simon… For your decency and kindness.

I Surrender – JK Cover
Sung with love, this was an incredibly challenging song to nail down – I hope you will hear the vocal effort, despite the very humble office recording circumstances…. One day, I sincerely hope to work in a proper studio again. For now, I will keep working on perfecting, strengthening and challenging myself to stretch into new pieces. And, may the planet choose and decide upon, Love.

‘Hero’ – my latest effort – I dedicate this song to the Hero’s – those that speak the Truth, and tackle issues no-one wants to hear or know about. You know who you are… Love, always, Jaya Khoobsurat
Like. Share. Awaken.

The only thing we are born to do, is learn to love.
Wars, negative emotions, dysfunctions, cruelty, abuse… all pale in significance, against, The Power of Love.
My latest efforts include Ave Maria, and Autumn Leaves (with the Eva Cassidy version backing track); and I’ve re-recorded the Josh Groban song, Remember When It Rained…
Watch in HD, full screen, sound up.
‘Like’, ‘Share’. Enjoy.
In early May 2014, JCD and a group of teachers went to the desert of UAE and enjoyed an overnight Safari expedition.
