Mishri (Anuv Jain)

Love is like a chewing gum. It sticks in the wrong places in your mouth. You chew it and you feel like God, but a couple of minutes later, it gets so annoying that you want to throw it away. Some swallow it. Some continue to chew it. But then some let go. Wrapped in... Continue Reading →

Allah Ke Bande (Kailash Kher)

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 →

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

Tera Naam Nahi (Nida Fazli)

Could someone just live my life on my behalf? I wonder sometimes what a relief it would be. The trouble isn't the hardships of life, but the emptiness in it. There are days when I would just be grateful if I could feel something. I truly have witnessed life pass by. Day after day, every... 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. Hold... Continue Reading →
