Just a l❤️vely song…

For those who still don’t consider Valentine’s Day as Blah 😀… For all hearts which beat in the name of love… For the young ones who observe a festival for a week every February, where love for the other is professed with promises, chocolates, gifts, cards, teddy bears, etc. and the countless ageless lovers of […]

Good from far

… and far from good! Long years ago, when I used to be a student, a batchmate who still continues to be a dear friend had this special maxim coined for young men. Those young men who could create a certain mental diversion and had the potential to take you down a kuchcha track ( […]

In for a song.

Songs are our words, some eloquent some unspoken. We may not be born poets but we love poetry. Songs are poetry which is easy to the mind and colloquial in words. I live songs. I love songs. I love the vivid notes and the swelling emotions. A song is bound to float in, giving lyrics […]
