Morning Blues and Rajasthani Hues

My final semester is over. I have been sitting around gathering my thoughts. One question that is not leaving my mind is - what now?
Honestly I don't know what now. Only grim ideas are residing in the crevices of my mind leaching into my dreams at night. I am listening to my favourite hindi songs since morning. I love all kinds of music but you know some days you just want to hear things in the language you grew up listening to. I could listen to rabindra sangeet(rabindranath tagore's songs) which I grew up singing and learning. The first song I picked up on the harmonium was a tagore composition. But that will just remind me of lost days and make me incredibly sad..
As I am listening to the songs I am thinking of the places I have never been to. Among other places I have never been to Rajasthan and I have never seen a desert sunset. I have never seen the beautiful Jaisalmiri palaces. My first glimpse of Rajasthan was perhaps in Satyajit Ray's "Sonar Kella"(The Golden Fortress).





Sonar Kella (The Golden Fortress)






 Here are the top 5 songs from my morning playlist

  1. Piya Basanti Re
  2. Woh Lamhe - Jal
  3. Ore Piya
  4. Gori Teri Ankhen Kahe
  5. Kehna Hi Kya
 P.S.- My dad lost my camera on his trip to Darjeeling. I still don't get how you can lose a camera?!

  5. These are the images that make me really want to visit India. Rajasthan is on the top of my India list too. My brother and sister in-law were fortunate enough to go there and be entertained by the raj and rani (or at least, their descendants) in one of the palaces years ago. They were treated to gorgeous processions with elephants (or should I say "on top of elephants"), etc. Just straight out of a film set!

    Good luck with whatever you plan after school! It's actually an exciting stage in life, though slightly daunting too. But I know you'll do well and make choices that are right for you. -- J xx
