You and You Alone (Himalayas)

Jul 28 2013

Tried to revive this lost song that I’d written as a Wedding Anniversary song for my brother and sister-in-law 7 yrs ago and had not sung it since then. Acoustic rendition I recorded in Sitla village (Uttarakhand) few days ago. Thanks to Brandon for composing and Justin for collaborating. Words: So many years have passed since I held you close to me So many...

I reckon I’ll just...

After doing my laundry this morning, this was the first when I actually went to check out the park. I thought of tying the video up with a poem I wrote couple years ago. Enjoy! There’s an old singing river that flows by my door Each...

A Lonely Shadow

Mar 21 2008

I wrote this back in August of 2003 and strangely quite a few people liked it back then. I just found it today hiding beneath my stack of sheets. So I thought I would put it up here.  The photo is of Kalatop Rest House at Khajjiar, Himachal.
