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 →

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 →

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.

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 →

Sanu Ik Pal Chaen Na Aave

I know nothing. Nothing.  Imagine being on a boat. A boat that has no oars. A boat riding on waters that are still. Imagine a sun. A sun that lights up everything it touches. In a sky that's spotless. Imagine a body on that boat, under that sun. Imagine that it has no ties to anything... Continue Reading →

Afreen Afreen

Do we say it often? Do we tell them enough how beautiful they are? I don't think so. Just tell people they're beautiful, yes? Just. Say it. And one day, I guess, we'll find that one person we can't say it to. Because they leave us speechless. Yeah? A beautiful song performed two decades ago... Continue Reading →

Naam Gum Jayega

I think the most difficult things we have to say are also the simplest. If only we find the right words. And the right mind. Or heart. And. We. Run. With. It. What happens when we don't? What happens when you don't do either of those things? Poetry is born. Naam Gum Jayega, written by... Continue Reading →

Walid Ki Wafat Par

I woke up this morning and checked my phone for aaaalll the updates that I usually see every morning. Instagram, Facebook, Whatsapp, SMSes, Emails. Wow. A lot of apps, yeah? This morning I woke up to a message from my Mom. It was buried under the load of other hippy stuff, but this one was... Continue Reading →
