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 →

Dil Dhoondhta Hai

I've been very restless lately. I've wanted to read the Gita for the longest time (even though I have a theory about the timing of it, but then that's for later), BUT then there is also Tolstoy, Pratchett, Ludlum, Ken Robinson, Nietzsche, Bukowski, Kahneman, Ayn Rand, Bono, Milan Kundera (and more) on my bedside.
