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 →

Laali Mere Laal Ki (Kabir Das)

This time around, I'm revealing a small secret to y'all. Last 4 months have been a whirlwind in life. On October 31, 2020, a few people witnessed the birth of Sifar Collective. A shrine for those who seek shelter with words. A true congruence of multi-cultures. What's interesting is that few of them know that... 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 →

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 →

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 →

Sabse Khatarnaak (Pash)

What makes us human? As the year comes to an end and I'm socially pushed towards thinking of all the good things and the bad things of the year two thousand eighteen, my mind wanders off to the otherwise routine thoughts I have on any other day of the year. Such as: "I could probably... Continue Reading →
