>Some songs……


This is when I had my quaint little shop in Delhi. This shop had an even quainter music system that would only play tapes. Yes, those things called cassettes. During that time I caught a song somewhere. I think it was on TV. That song had the potential to make me feel sad at times, totally and moonily in love with hubby at others and at times it would make me so happy. Yes. It was one of those songs. You know, the ones that give you goose bumps. The ones where you fall in love with the song, the lyrics and the artiste.

So I bought a tape of the album and ran it over and over and over……..

It annoyed me tremendously that the song was not breaking records and climbing up the charts.

The song is called ‘Abhi Nahin Aana’. And it’s by a beautiful singer called Sona Mohapatra.

Why did I bring this up? Because I met the girl today for work reasons. And I loved her. And I’m so glad she is the way she is. She embodies and lives up to that song. If she wasn’t, I would have felt very disappointed. For me the song stands for certain qualities and characteristics and it would have broken my heart to meet someone where it was very clear that she had only lent the voice for commercial reasons. She is that song. She believes in her music and will not compromise.

Here’s a link to the song…. You may like. But again, you may not. I LOVE IT.
