Musical Memory#3 : Joy

joys of making bonds
with one who had none before
his smile said it all

..

Prompted @ Sensational Haiku Wednesday

This haiku was also inspired by the memory of my school days. The conductor of the school bus for my route did not have a family. On rakshabandhan he was all the more upset to see rakhis on almost all guys’ wrist. To cheer him up, i offered to tie him a rakhi which he readily accepted.  He heard the same set of songs daily with the first song being this –

I heard this so much that i could sing the whole song any time !!

God bless him wherever he is !

Musical Memory – 3 and a #hindi poem

He hated most of the music from bollywood.

He hated most of the songs with sad lyrics [ I was the emo fool you see since beginning]

He hated Atif Aslam..

and yet, he loved this song …

He even dedicated this to me one day when I cried [ I was missing home too much so I cried on his call ]

Of course I smiled ; He dedicated nothing to any  one. I felt special for sure.

So here’s the song – Kuch Is tarah :

and here’s a poem I wrote yesterday afternoon while I was listening to this song.

[It is in hindi , english translation might follow some day]

=~=~=~=~=~=

kuch is tarah…
bol ek geet ke,
jaadu sangeet ka
yaadein ek meet ki..
.

tere chehre par
khushi merei aas ki
dukh mere raaz ka,
hansi meri yaad ki..

.

gam hain ye tere
tohfa ek mulakaat ka
zakhm ek jazbaat ka
kissa kisi ke izhaar ka..

.

sun meri ye guzarish
saza jo bhi ho meri
kabool har shart teri
baat ho bas teri meri.

books
Last weekend Loot !!

 

Well last weekend was a package deal ! And such an amazing time !!

And it was also a beginning of another lost hobby – to write random lyrics in a notebook that always adorns the bedside. Here is the first set ( one of my mom’s favorite) in hindi –

This is the song my mom kind of gave as a lesson when we were of the age to have feelings for guys. My mother is a pretty cool lady. I remember her asking this question from time to time if I had a boyfriend or if I liked some one during college years. Here’s the song :

[ Its opening lines and the rest of it has one message – It is not possible for any human to leave all the world / his possessions for the sake of love. The song further says that what if you could not be together for life , isn’t it enough that your hearts were one once ! ]

Have a great weekend !

sunday Musical Memory – week 1

Ok ! So the secret about me , that music is my drug is no more a  secret even on blogs 😉 i admit i forget anything and any one when I am plugged in to some of my fav music ! And that happens like daily. i confess i really do  not have much going on in my life and work that can or should be talked about so all I talk of and hear is different music tracks ! and trust me, I have an amazing line up on hindi tracks [ Which i will not bore you with]

What I am going to share with you are the memories behind some of my fav tracks [ which are many – both songs and the memories] so it might eventually turn into an on going series ! So every sunday i will turn a random page from ym mind and go blah blah about it !

This week its the first post so I decided to begin where it all began from. Year i will need to calculate so skip it, I was 7 years old when dad bought a cassette player ( thats what it was called in my area) And mom got an old cassette full of older than i could imagine songs ( I never asked her where it came from since we did not have the player since then). And the first song was my mom’s fave [ which i hated that time and totally love now ] : [*Translation of song context in the end]

.

I hated it ’cause mom would completely  get lost in singing this and i of course did not like the sad words. And today its an opposite case in my home. I so often listen to this and other old songs [ mostly sad i guess] and mom says its not yet my age to be so sad !!

So this is for this week. More music every sunday. Keep tuned ! And do share your memories and music with me ! I will write about it if you permit 🙂

And we have another Amazing Musical Memory post links here :

Winnie

*The song is a dead lover telling the lady that since she has rejected true love, she herself should not expect love for herself ! And her own heart is going to be a witness to this and complain about the love she let go  !
