Ghar (Piyush Mishra)

Piyush Mishra is like.. fire. Enticing and dangerous. Recommended by Naina (yay!), I decided to look at this song more closely. There was no stopping anyone who heard Husna to go and look for *any* other tracks by Piyush Mishra. The man can write. I recently read his book Kuch Ishq Kiya Kuch Kaam Kiya, and watched several...

Tere Bin

True and true. Tere bin. For me it's an eternal, "Bro. You mean the world (almost) to me" song for me. Rabbi is kinda magical. And such beautiful words. What I find really fascinating are the following lines: "Koi mangda mera si sama Koi honda surat te fida Koi mangda meri si wafa Na koi... Continue Reading →

Maaeri

This was my number one song. Still is.

I guess it is enough to say that they knew a love that was more than love and they lived it rather unconditionally. An article... Continue Reading →

Ranjish Hi Sahi (Ahmad Faraz)

Sometimes you can feel it in your veins. How badly you need someone or something. Even if it means hurting your own self in the process. 'Something is better than nothing.' "Jaise tumhein aate hain na aane ke bahaane Aise hi kisi roz na jaane ke liye aa Ranjish hi sahi.. Dil hi dukhaane ke... Continue Reading →

Mera Kuch Samaan (Gulzar)

Ijaazat. If you've seen the film, you know what it means. If you haven't, you should definitely give it a shot. I had heard all its songs a long time ago but never got around to watching the film until last week. "Ek sau solah chaand ki raatein Ek tumhaare kaandhe ka til." I was... Continue Reading →
