Geet Gaatha Chal

Thoughts on a random order ....



--------------------------------------------------------------



While driving a long 30 min drive from office to home I switch on the radio on my car, all the stations play horrible songs. Every time I shift stations the severity of horridness increases. Then when I am almost home, *BANG* there starts my favorite drive-time song.



So I neatly park the vehicle by the side, listen to it and then head home. Or may be if it’s a great song and the fuel tank is full, I would take a U-turn, move a km ahead and take a turn back home.



Edited: Heck, many a times two different stations play good songs at the same time then I get confused to choose. On few other occasions, two stations play the same song with seconds of difference.



--------------------------------------------------------------



There is always a song that depicts my contemporary place. Be it ‘I-hate-my-present-life’ or ‘I-fought-with-x/y/z’, also ‘love-is-in-the-air’ to ‘work-life-rocks’; the scene arises and the song starts humming inside my head.



It is good most of the times; at least it gives me some sense of hope that somewhere someone else suffers the same pain/enjoys a similar happiness.



--------------------------------------------------------------



There is a memory/person connected with every gaana. Once the song is heard, every tiny bit of reminiscence unfolds.



The song ‘Hawa-Hawa’ was played in my neighborhood every day for n number of times when I was ehhh in LKG by ‘Sony’ akka who is a research pilot in NASA now. How can I forget the way Bhavana Di taught us dance steps for ‘Maye Ne Maye Ne’. Like ‘yeno-modi-madidhe’ reminds me of some one who sang that damn sweetly back in 2003 even though that person was rejected from the college orchestra.



--------------------------------------------------------------



Music is an integral part of my life. I cannot work, work-out, wait, and drive without it. It has to be there whether in ipod or in phone or on car system.



Some day may be I will go deaf due to constant plugging of head phones but heck who cares… turn that music on...



Will ya?
