Udd Ja Kaale Kaawaan (Anand Bakshi)

One-sided love sucks.It calls for so much commitment and hardship that only if you've ever been in one-sided love, you can comprehend. This one is dedicated to all those living in that excruciating heartache of not being loved back. I found this beautiful and soulful rendition of Udd Ja Kaale Kaanwaa'n on Youtube by the...

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 →

Peer Vi Tu

What happens when you discover love? What happens when you get the answers you've been seeking? Sufism (and almost all other religious belief systems) say that the answer lies within. What if that was true? What if.. you know the answers but you've been knocking the wrong so hard that your knuckles are now bruised... 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 →

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 →

Baawra Mann (Swanand Kirkire)

Baawra Mann has been one of those things I've turned to every time I wanted to feel anew. This one song, and a music video. I am not sure what strings they're able to pull at my heart, but in an instant, I feel like my soul teleports to a time when I was younger,... 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 →

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 →
