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 , Music and Words – weekend shots

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 :



*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  !
