Ikk Kudi (Shiv Kumar Batalvi)

I heard this song just last night and I had a dream today. I was sitting with a best friend, with my head on his shoulder and his hand in my hand and this beautiful song playing in the background. We gazed at the stars burning, the fire lighting up our souls and the torn... Continue Reading →

Day 2 of 3 Day Quote Challenge

I've felt a little lost lately, which is why I lost track of time. It's running away way too fast, so much so, that I find it difficult to curse it or something. Here are some more from the little pink diary:   "Chase down your passion like it's the last bus of the night."... Continue Reading →

Walid Ki Wafat Par

I woke up this morning and checked my phone for aaaalll the updates that I usually see every morning. Instagram, Facebook, Whatsapp, SMSes, Emails. Wow. A lot of apps, yeah? This morning I woke up to a message from my Mom. It was buried under the load of other hippy stuff, but this one was... Continue Reading →

Day 1 of 3 Day Quote Challenge

Hellew. My first challenge something on my blog. Thank you Advaita for nominating me! 😀 (WAIT. AM I A BLOGGER?! WHAAAA. :O) *ahem* So. I've been an avid quote-hogger since school. Because I didn't like random books in the library, I picked up Chicken Soup for the.. No, not Teen, Pre-teen, Post-teen soul, but *ahem*... Continue Reading →

Mere Dil Ki Raakh

Because I can't get enough of Bashir Badr, here's another one. I returned from a week-long trip to Kashmir yesterday, and everywhere I went, I couldn't help but say these lines to myself: "Makaan se kya mujhe lena? Makaan tumko mubarak ho Magar ye ghaas wala reshmi kaaleen mera hai." Babur was correct. Babur knew... Continue Reading →

Bheegi Hui Aankhon Ka Ye Manzar Na Milega

I am not afraid to admit I am afraid. I'm scared how these new beginnings will turn out to be, and I'm also scared about all the things that are ending. Moving out of home for the first time. For good. Getting my first job. Letting go of people. Patiently holding on to others, hoping. Running around and... Continue Reading →

Deewane

My first post.. of my own little something. I wrote the first two lines while traveling in a metro some years ago. I was traveling very often in those days (before Uber walked all over me and emptied my virtual wallets a thousand times over), and usually I wouldn't be crushed by aunties and girls...

Yeh Kadamb Ka Ped (Subhadrakumari Chauhan)

I must have been in class II or III when I first heard कदम्ब का पेड़ (Kadamb ka Ped) and I haven't forgotten it since. It's been over 15 years now. This  piece of work is by Subhadrakumari Chauhan. The most astonishing fact is that I remember Mrs. Kadam teaching us this in class. I think what... Continue Reading →

Churalo Na Dil Mera

This is one of the cutest songs EVER. I shamelessly love it for its simplicity and its playfulness. 😀 It also reminds me of the then post-Soldier dashing Bobby Deol who tried every bit to get this girl in Kareeb.  I remember Kareeb for Chori chori jab nazrein mili. And. Chori chori jab neendein udi. :D... Continue Reading →

Ab Vida Leta Hun (Pash)

Pash. Avtar Singh Sandhu. New found love. When I first heard this poem, I was just lost in its imagery. This one may be a little long and slightly difficult to get a grip of the first time, but give it a read. You'll feel something you haven't felt in a while. I'm sure.  ... Continue Reading →
