Kindness costs us nothing

Kindness costs us nothing. Why bother hating—if it’s far too difficult to prosecute or defend? Which it usually is. Kindness. Let’s keep it in mind. I want to add a sort of quick “disclaimer” here and let everyone know that I had no intention to jump into the fray over whether Sonu-ji one of my dear […]

On People Pleasing Dysfunction (Amy Morin/PT)

Written by on in My views

Namaste, Dear Music Lovers, One aspect of being “in the public eye” is the tendency of artists/performers to fall into some variation of “people pleasing behaviours” and I’ll admit it’s practically a given for singers. If we’re not already overloaded with pressure to produce excellence by a music director or composer, we can find ourselves […]

Mumbai Getaways are Possible!

Written by on in Feedback/Bug Report

Mumbai is more than a concrete jungle! ‘though it seems I must sell the city as a destination to my West Bengal family and friends based mainly on visiting me and my wonderful Maharashtra-based artist friends, the city and its environs hold natural and cultural wonders that are second to none.

Arrant Moodiness Feeds Egomania

I have somehow become convinced that it’s okay to ignore some fans I love when, like a petulant child, I may not get my way at all times on my own schedule. I sorry. I will do better. This post was much longer. I took the moody part out, now it’s not so long. We’ll see […]

Patience Pays

Every year around this time Monsoon arrives. While it has been known to “come in like gangbusters” and inundate roads and neighbourhoods (not to mention farms, homes, schools, businesses and gardens) with abundant rains, one seldom knows precisely when the rains will arrive.

In our Musically Yours interview, I got to gush on Sharukh Khan‘s favorite Dilwale musical number (mine too): Faridoonji apparently got a kick out of my frank talk.
