Allah Ke Bande (Kailash Kher)

It’s only words. And words are all I have. To take your heart away. After a journey of a lifetime, in fact, many journeys of a lifetime later - I’m back. Nour it is. Who can not know this song? Sung by legendary Kailash Kher, and written by Vishal Dadlani, this song is an anthem... 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 →

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 →

Chandni Raat (Ali Sethi)

I love the smell of love. I love the drunkenness. I love how annoying it is. I love how wonderfully coy. Did I mention how annoying it is? And maybe just as much obsessive? But.

Such as: "I could probably... Continue Reading →

Sometimes it takes a very few words, very few literary weapons, to cut through you and remind you of all the things that aren't perfect- outside of your perceivably large, tiny world. That's what this did to me. Here's Postmortem ki Report by the... Continue Reading →

Wo Jo Hum Mein Tum Mein Qaraar Tha

Dreams. Bad dreams aren't good for the soul. It's like feeding your mind the worst of your imagination. Of all the things that one could think of, to think of being stranded in a land you don't recognize and no familiar faces- that's the dream I fear the most. Because reality isn't very different a...

Singaar Ko Rehne Do (Gulzar)

Do people talk like this anymore? Do we tell each other enough that we love the little things? Do we notice them at all? Do we spend time just watching? Observing? Do we bother to listen beyond just what the other person's saying? Do we stop. Stare. Smile. And say everything without uttering a word?... Continue Reading →

Ye Ishq Hai

Aren't we all a little about love in one way or another? Even if it's our poison. A recent dialogue that played out in my head: I turned to someone because I was scared and unsure and feeling lost and mustered a lot of courage to say: "I feel nothing." He turned to me and... Continue Reading →
