The Singing Bowl…

The Singing Bowl…

It starts with a hum and slowly builds into a wave that washes over your mind, body and soul. A singing bowl really does sing to you. It takes a certain pace, a restrained rhythm all working in sync to make this music. The best way to play it is to surrender. Close your eyes […]






Those Who ‘Defend’ History Know Nothing About It

Those Who ‘Defend’ History Know Nothing About It

Those who filmed themselves proudly as they broke cameras, vandalised property and beat up Sanjay Leela Bhansali on the sets of Padmavati know nothing about the culture they claim to be protecting. So let us begin with a slice of history. With the story of a man who was a devout Muslim and a bhakt […]






David Bowie: ‘Look Up Here, I’m In Heaven’

David Bowie:  ‘Look Up Here, I’m In Heaven’

My first introduction to the unrepeatable David Bowie was Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence. A disturbing, cathartic, strangely uplifting film about war that was made in 1983  by Nagisa Oshima. Bowie played Major Jack Celliers, a mind bending war prisoner who is so free, nothing can break him. Not violence. Not torture. Not perverse mind games. […]






Azaan….

Azaan….

For some afternoons now, I have been listening to the Azaan. Its hauntingly beautiful melody floats over the houses, slips through the lanes to reach me. I don’t really know where it comes from; it doesn’t sound very near. But sound has a way of getting through. The muezzin seems to put all the power of his meditation into […]






Music, images and words..

Music, images and words..

Music, images and the written word … while being, inanimate, in themselves … many a time, make up for the absence of the human presence, the heart connect,  emotional bonding,  conversations,  sharing, understanding … and in an inexplicable way, become a best friend, a soul mate, a co-witness, who is so needed … they nurture […]






Alive

Alive

It had been just a few days since she got the news of her incurable illness from her physician. It had taken a while for the seriousness of the matter to sink in and finally she had managed to ask, “How much time do I have?”  The doctor, after a few moments of deep thought […]






Waheeda Rehman: ‘Don’t struggle Against The Inevitable’

Waheeda Rehman: ‘Don’t struggle Against The Inevitable’

  In the mid 90s, Waheeda Rehman was negotiating a cusp in her life. After spending a few blissful decades in Bengaluru with husband Kanwaljit (with whom she had starred in the 1964 film Shagoon) in a sprawling hacienda called ‘Gharonda,’  raising two children, initiating an organic cereal brand with friend and neighbour Asharfa Sattar, she was […]






Ghulam Ali: Last Legend Standing

Ghulam Ali: Last Legend Standing

‘Dil ki choton ne kabhi chain se rehne na diya jab chali sard hawa maine tujhe yaad kiya’ (The wounded heart restlessly aches… Whenever the wind ripples, for you…I crave) ‘Iss ka rona nahi kyun tumne kiya dil barbaad Iss ka gham hai ki bahut der se barbaad kiya’ (I don’t mourn the fact that […]






Just Another Dream

Just Another Dream

There was something amiss.  He could not put his finger on it but a part of his brain knew there was something definitely wrong.  “I can’t tax my brains right now” he muttered to himself.  “Getting up so early in the morning during such harsh winters is bad enough” he grumbled.  His hand felt something […]






Jagjit Singh: Beyond Loss

Jagjit Singh: Beyond Loss

I have been thinking of pain lately. The pointlessness of it. The inevitability of it. Why some people court it and others shun it. Some hide it and others hide from it. Some people gather painful moments like they were spring flowers. Their life is defined by pain, what it did to them, will do […]






Manna Dey: A Seamless Note

Manna Dey:  A Seamless Note

Around 12 years ago, I travelled for hours to a lesser known neighbourhood in Bangalore to find and interview Manna Dey. He lived on the first floor of an independent home and it was probably a rented space.and there were really no flourishes of fame and legendary success anywhere. ** This was a middle-class home […]






Journeys..

Journeys..

Journeys are beautiful. Calming, subtle, silently running along like a film on your window frame. Different scenes painting  the road side, living for a short while and before you realize..gone. You sit back, listen to your favourite songs and watch out for what life portrays next. A guitar strum, a hidden harmony, and the vivid […]
