Laut Aa Ek Pal – In Himalayas

During my train Journey back to Uttarakhand this week, a lot of things went through my mind as I watched different shades of life zip by from my window; children playing in villages, anxious passengers waiting for their train, indifferent cows grazing without a care, women working in the fields, and so on..

Written & Composed on 11 September 2013
Sitla Village, Uttarakhand (-Gautam Dhar 'Zafar')

All in all, it was a ride that reminded me of a Ruskin Bond Story “Time stops in Shamli”. Anyhow, the buzzing continued and left me with a song 2 days ago. Before I said goodbye to my ex-students at Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Delhi earlier this week, one of my students requested me to write a song that could make one cry. I’m not sure if he’d be content with it, but penning it down surely drained me. Thanks for listening.

    Gautam, enjoying your music for around more then an hour I can’t imagine it’s your voice. So soft touchy voice from depth of your heart…Bhagavan aapki sabhi murad puri kare vohi bhavna sahit …
