Standing in the Rain

My rendition of an original song written and composed by Steve Hunter from UK. He was kind enough to send me the lyrics and permission to do a cover of this song. I dedicate this song to the 23 yr old Girl from Dehra Dun who’s fighting to survive in Safdarjung Hospital, Delhi right now…..

Akhiri Saans Ke Tukde

I wrote this Nazm in the unforgettable month of March this year just before I penned Purani Dilli and Wo Kamra Khaali Hai. It was my swan-song for the time-being. Thanks for reading. I recorded this very late in the night after a couple hours of singing on the Guitar, so the voice is hoarse,…

Wo Kamra Khaali Hai

This month was an unforgettable month for me and quite ironically so, especially during the last leg of my stay here in the United States. This Nazm came to me late after midnight a couple weeks ago as I was staring at the wall while trying to sleep and staring at the huge pile of…

Purani Dilli

Mysterious Melody

I want to share a little incident that has baffled me for a while now, although I never quite gave it much attention, but still want to throw it out there. I want to share a tune that I recorded in September 2006. I had just started learning Guitar on my own and at that…

Astral Experiment #1

Experiments in Time My decision to conduct experiments with Time and Space started in September 2011 after a year long research on topics such as Astral Projection, Space Time continuum, Time Travel and other similar topics that may sound out there to an average so-called intellectual. After going through the procedures involved and initial preparation,…

World Cup Comes Home!

For many of us who were born in the 80s and did not get to experience India’s triumph in the 1983 Cricket World Cup, it was an unbelievable experience watching India defeat Sri Lanka team on 2nd April 2011 at Wankhede Stadium, Bombay (India). For those of us in the Western Hemisphere, especially US –…

Saalgirah e Ghalib

I’ve been doing some travelling in last 1 week or so, first to Yosemite Valley and then to the famous/infamous Winchester Mystery House. Amidst travelling, I sit down today and remember our beloved Mirza Ghalib on his 212th Birth Anniversary with this verse: “लो हम मरीज़ ऐ इश्क के बीमारदार हैं अच्छा अगर न हो…
