Channa Mereya

'Channa', in Punjabi, means the moon. The Moon. The constant companion of lovers throughout the history of mankind. There was a time once, a very long time ago, when I used to look up at the moon and feel comforted that if nothing else, someone I knew, and I shared this one thing every single night. I...

Aankh Uthi Mohabbat Ne Angdai Li

Qawalli is magical chaos.  Every time I listen to one, I get confused. Confused. How do they manage to engulf you? Each time?

Afreen Afreen

Do we say it often? Do we tell them enough how beautiful they are? I don't think so. Just tell people they're beautiful, yes? Just. Say it.

Naam Gum Jayega

I think the most difficult things we have to say are also the simplest. If only we find the right words. And the right mind. Or heart. And. We. Run. With. It. What happens when we don't? What happens when you don't do either of those things? Poetry is born. Naam Gum Jayega, written by... Continue Reading →

Paar Chanaa De

This song that everyone's been talking about.. Paar Chanaa De? It's got a story. And if you don't know this, I think you may be interested. Before you go ahead and try to understand the meaning of the song, you need to know the story of Sohni and Mahiwal. Theirs was one of the tragic love... Continue Reading →

Main Tainu Fir Milaangi

Amrita Pritam. A name that I feel like I've known forever. Today being her birthday, I can't help but contain my happiness that we were fortunate to have had someone like her amongst us. And I am even more fortunate that of all the things I could have been doing in life at the time... Continue Reading →
