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 →

Kaisi Hai Ye Rut (Javed Akhtar)

19 years of Dil Chahta Hai! Cannot believe. It also feels like I was much older when I met those three friends, got entwined in their stories, discovered Goa as the prime getaway location with friends, and so much more. Wasn't the film a tribute to all love stories? And friendships? As each year passes... Continue Reading →

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. Hold... Continue Reading →

Aapki Yaad Aati Rahi

So little to give away, I thought. What more was left? After all that I'd been through, what did I have left to give away? And so I smiled. Love's a funny business. Always has been. And what's the collateral damage to loving? Memories. Wouldn't we all just be better off if we had none?... Continue Reading →

Jaane De

Many years ago, there was a guy who knew little about life. No matter how hard he tried, things never seemed to come together. Love, was his worship. Not surprisingly, it didn't last very long. A few months ago I heard he had another heartbreak. A few months ago, I heard that he still tried.... 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...

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 →
