Laali Mere Laal Ki (Kabir Das)

This time around, I'm revealing a small secret to y'all. Last 4 months have been a whirlwind in life. On October 31, 2020, a few people witnessed the birth of Sifar Collective. A shrine for those who seek shelter with words. A true congruence of multi-cultures. What's interesting is that few of them know that... Continue Reading →

Kaisi Hai Ye Rut (Javed Akhtar)

19 years of Dil Chahta Hai! Cannot believe. It also feels like I was much older when I met those three friends, got entwined in their stories, discovered Goa as the prime getaway location with friends, and so much more. Wasn't the film a tribute to all love stories? And friendships? As each year passes... Continue Reading →

Baarishein (Anuv Jain)

There are times when you listen to a particular song, and then you continue to replay it several times over simply because it is projecting such heartwarming images in your head and this fuzzy little feeling in your chest. Sometimes the lyrics don't all tie up together, sometimes you feel the music isn't perfect, but... Continue Reading →

Chandni ki Paanch Partein (Sarveshwar Dayal Saxena)

"Ye chand sa roshan chehra, zulfon ka rang sunehra" "Chand chhupa badal mein, sharmake meri jaana" "Mere saamne wali khidki mein ek chand ka tukda rehta hai" "Channa mereya, mereya! Channa mereya, mereya!" "Chandni raatein! Sab jag soye, hum jaage, taaron se karein baatein! Chandni raatein!" "Raat shabhnami, bheegi chandni! Teesra koi, door tak nahin!"... Continue Reading →

Baawra Mann (Swanand Kirkire)

Baawra Mann has been one of those things I've turned to every time I wanted to feel anew. This one song, and a music video. I am not sure what strings they're able to pull at my heart, but in an instant, I feel like my soul teleports to a time when I was younger,... Continue Reading →

Mera Piya Ghar Aaya (Bulleh Shah)

Pictured Madhuri Dixit dancing, didn't you? The day I came across this version of this very old song from my sappy, old memories of some dance rehearsals from my very early years of an 'okay' dancer, I couldn't help but dive right in and revel in it for a few days. It's been nearly four... Continue Reading →

Sakhi, Wo Mujhse Kehkar Jaate

I went on a short-film watching spree tonight. I think I've seen about 15 of them, and this one warmed my heart up like no other. Almost as if I could watch my heart's face curve into a smile. (Yep, I put a face to a heart because I have the creative liberty. How abused... Continue Reading →

Meri Jaan Mujhe Jaan Na Kaho

This is the song you've been wanting to hear for a while now. Like an emotion that's just been swept under the carpet as one hears a knock on the door of one's heart, this song is meant to be tucked away, and kept safe, for rainy days, days of love, days of anguish and... Continue Reading →

Ruko.

You know there are days when you just sit up, take your laptop (or pen and paper, or typewriter, or iPad, or mind- whichever device it is that you use to make things up), and just vomit words out? I feel quite content the day after I do something like this. It lifts a weight... Continue Reading →
