When Shankar Mahadevan released his iconic song, 'Breathless' in 1998, it was a moment in music history that left critics and music lovers spellbound. The song propelled Shankar Mahadevan to the forefront of the music industry.

The lyrics of the song were written by Javed Akhtar. "Breathless," is a steady stream of words that goes on without a break, sans stanzas, verse or apparently even a pause for breath. The length of the part of the song which is 'breathless' is about three minute - which makes it such an amazing piece of art in general. Even twenty years later today, the song is still iconic.

A veena artist and Youtuber, called 'Veena Srivani' recently performed the song 'Breathless' on her veena, which had similar effects on the Internet as the original song did: it left people captivated.

The musician plays the veena with all of the beats of the song, without a pause, and appears to do so almost 'effortlessly' which resulted in her winning people's heart.

Watch the video below.

The Internet, especially cannot get over how amazing this is.
