I'm sitting in Delhi right now after having an anticlimax saturday. I started out with high hopes of having a fun day but a series of bad timings robbed the day of its flavour. I woke up at 8 today and got ready after breakfast by 11 or so. I then hitched a ride with Nonika, my cousin, to Nehru Place where I did some shopping and then came back with 4 chicken rolls. I called up Aku didi, who'll be joining Google sometime next month in HR and obviously demanded a treat from her. She said she would be home in GK by 4 and she was there by 3:15! We thought that we had a good chance of watching a movie but we got delayed in our departure to Saket and we decided to wait a little longer and watch Bas Ek Pal in PVR Spice but we delayed too much and we lost our chance to get a ticket there too and we ended up playing pool at Tayaji's place. There the lights went off and we returned home by 8:30 :( Anyways, another 1/2 day is left and I feel like sleeping so that's it for today. I'll make the most of Delhi while I'm here.
Thanks to Sanat Rath , I had the absolute privilege of listening to this superb rendering of Madari by Vishal Dadlani and Sonu Kakkar and an absolutely stunning composition by Clinton Cerejo as part of Coke Studio. Here's the official video. The lyrics of the song are interspersed with the meanings translated to English. Credits for the superb lyrics go to Manoj Yadav. Hope you enjoy it. Make sure you watch this in HD, it's worth the extra audio quality.
