Dealing with Grief in a Pandemic

Namaste, Dear Music Lover, While about 90%+ of this blog-site is devoted to singing, specifically for movie playback music in Bollywood, there are some off-topics that I simply cannot ignore, because for example, my heart 💜 is pulled in the direction of those dealing with the tragic consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic that has persistently […]

Psst… The Secrets of Romantic Songs

Written by on in My views

Namaste, Dear Music Lover, Most great Bollywood movies have at least one romantic scene as part of the story. Often, the leading characters either have a “magic moment” (such as when they first meet, or when a relationship takes a turn, e.g. the couple endures some shared experience—like a fright, struggle or other plot complication) […]

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.

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 […]

Language – the Vedanga

(Second in my Language Series) Here’s my ‘quick look’ at the Six Vedanga: they formed an ancient language science (from which modern Indo-European languages and rules evolved). Vedanga (n., pl.|Sanskrit: वेदाङ्ग vedāṅga, “limbs of the Veda”).

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 […]
