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 →

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...

Piya Tora Kaisa Abhimaan?

I wish I could write something impressive. It's been a while since I wrote. Nearly a year. Over three hundred such days have passed that I don't remember my hands trembling, furiously typing in words on my Keep and categorising them under 'Khayaal'. But no more. I wonder sometimes if we could also just do this act... Continue Reading →
