Occasionally I do blog on songs, poetry and many things. It kind of reflects on what I find inspiring and shall I say enabling for learning new meanings in language.
Update: 7th October 2013
Mohiner Ghoraguli is a Bengali rock band that had two innings – the first one between 1975 – 1981 when they recorded a bunch of EPs. Then there was a revival in the 1990s when they edited / curated a number of albums featuring themselves and many young Bengali artistes performing songs written by them.
From their first album, Songbino Pakhikul O Kolkata Bishayak ((Songs) On Anxious Feathers and Kolkata)
Hindi Film Songs: Lyrics
Gulzar: One of the greatest Hindi poets and song writers.
A potential worthy inheritor of Gulzar’s metaphorical tradition is probably Prasoon Joshi. Still much to evolve and grow, but his song Hey Kala Bandar was quite a feat. Two other contemporary song writers I like a lot – Piyush Mishra (who is a rare song writer but has a rich history in theatre) and Swanand Kirkire. I wrote about couple of songs written by them.
Pink Floyd: Recently I rediscovered Pink Floyd while exploring the Songbird music browser. This was also useful in refinding the magic of Led Zeppelin especially as bed time music.
Bob Dylan is a heading by itself. It’s hard rain a-gonna fall.
My friend Sanjeev Naik had been tweeting poetry for months. Triggered by his choice of poets, I started blogging poems by different poets and poetesses.
