Tribute to MJ..

'If you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make a change. Starting with the man in the mirror and asking him to change his ways..' - great piece of advise even if the one who said it could never follow it.

That's what I feel about Michael Jackson - a man who was a contradiction between his words and his deeds. Though he sang 'it doesn't matter whether you are black or White', he was obsessed with his skin color and looks all his life. But no matter what he was as a person - a freak or child molester or drug addict or whatever, you cannot deny his talent or ignore his music. I think no other solo entertainer ever mesmerized the world like Michael Jackson, with his music and dance moves; not even Elvis. It still feels so different listening to Billie Jean or Beat it or Dirty Diana... nothing else sounds like that, nobody else sings like him. The famous moonwalk is enough to keep him alive in our memories for a long time to come.

To see a Michael Jackson concert was one of my life's ambitions and the chance I missed when he performed in Mumbai will remain one of my greatest disappointments. The larger than life aura he created around him almost made me think that he is immortal. But as he sang in one of his songs - 'Gone too soon'.

I just can't stop loving his music. The world will miss him for sure.
