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)

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 →

Ruko.

You know there are days when you just sit up, take your laptop (or pen and paper, or typewriter, or iPad, or mind- whichever device it is that you use to make things up), and just vomit words out? I feel quite content the day after I do something like this. It lifts a weight... 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. I love being lovesick. Always have. I feel like I've finally begun to function. The world is rosy. Life is... 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 →

Postmortem Ki Report

Sometimes it takes a very small knife to make a very deep wound. 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 →

Taraana-e-Pakistan (Pak Sarzamin)

Let's open our hearts, shall we? Celebrating 70 years of Independence on both sides. We're so close, so similar. We are basically the same people. We speak the same language, we wear the same clothes, we celebrate the same festivals, we share the love for music and the arts. What's the difference? Really? Music broke... Continue Reading →

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 →
