poets of the fallDid you ever love someone to consume the poison of their thoughts and melancholy like an elixir that heals your misjudgments only to take you higher?Will you let anyone in to see your darker side having faith they will still love you, endlessly, understanding what builds your darker side that makes you mysteriously loving through all the poison inside wanting sweetness and love to drive away all the black bile destroying you from within. When you find love that lifts you higher than the somberness and brings you to light from darkness, you have a reason to celebrate everyday as the venom within weakens as the demons are shut with the sweetness of true love.

Poets of The Fall lyrical ballads walk you through the depths of emotions waiting to unveil themselves and set themselves free through the bonds of true love. When you find the heart that wants to listen endlessly without umpiring your thoughts, actions, or words for the heart has only known to love wanting to decipher the beauty of your soul, imbibing the poison of distorted emotions, action, and thoughts from the one you love so with such madness that fail to want to see if it drags you down, because your soul knows that you are only going higher consuming the venom of your love and taking them higher along with you.

True love is the toughest thing. Only true love gives you the drive to search within the others soul to fill it with eternal love and understanding they are yearning for, and your soul sees through the unspoken emotions, dysfunctional melancholy, and baffling episodes. True love is baffling because you are the temple of their thoughts, deciphering every good and complex occurrences diving deep in the ocean of their soul. Do you dare to love someone enough to see beyond their insanity without breaking down, even when words fail emotions, because your heart has only known to love their soul.

Did you ever have the courage to love someone so much that you felt that your life would me a ‘Carnival of rust‘ without loving them. Are you willing to see through the beauty of the soul covered in debris of bad experiences that only bled their trust leading to mishaps one after another. Does your soul yearn depth to want deep emotions that touch your soul and stir emotions and gumption never felt before? Love that lets you sail fearlessly through deeper and darker realms only to find profound like nothing can ever touch that place your mind and soul has reached within sheltering chaos only to soften it with loving kindness and potions of redolence.

When twisted dramas unfold, leaving you in jeopardy to whether to continue or shun, your spirit guides you to see through the beauty mired in bedlam in that none can see and take it to the moon. Did you ever dare to protect someone even when you have been feeling shit scared yourself but wanted only good for them because they are carrying a storm within you cannot relate to but can see them in pain through pursed lips and taciturn, frozen emotions, because you can hear them scream within when none cares to even give it a thought. It takes courage to love someone through their darkness and light. Do you dare to love? Do you want love coming to you like the morning dew? Love, where you do not wish to draw the line, because you accept willingly everything that is coming in the name of love.

Music For The Starry Nights

Today I found the missing link for the ‘Starry Nights’ in the most dramatic fashion. Like a fairy feather sailing swiftly through the rocky boulevards, dark fantasy nights, piercing thunderstorms, without changing its pace or rhythm ushered into the bliss of a new light. Beyond the rave parties of Parvathi Valley and Kasol, lies a macrocosm, uncategorized, undefined, and unified through music.Music traverses you between different worlds and bridges everything in the cosmos with a rhythm and a beat. Within the beats of the fantasy music is a story of how your emotions raise their bar experiencing the better of everything. Music from the mystical lands where fairies and angels exist, and all things softer and dulcet, with a spirit of wilderness and poetic mind, gliding through the empire of angels, above and beyond all realms, is a fete for the soul.Talking of classical poetry of Yeats, Tennyson, and the celebrated ilk, they gave a rythm and music to thoughts, facts, history, philosophy, and more. They told the world in verses musical, how the human evolved, how emotions felt in myriad stages and moments.Coming to a standstill, watching meteor shower and starry nights, the cosmos is beckoning us to a new wave of thought, a food for gumption, symphonies your hearts yearning to sing, and get back to the basics.Love so tender and sweet, sewn through the tapestry of melodic verses, reminding time and again , we are hear to love and live with compassion. Not a ideal world yet, but the moments spent looking at the dreamy universe above us, are moments of beautiful surpless emotions, unhinging your soul into boundlessness.

Ghazals that Time Can Never Forgot

I grew up listening to Ghazals of Mehdi Hassan, Gulam Ali, Attaula Khan, and the ilk. Music has been the core of my life since I was a kid. I sang Geeta Dutt’s songs in my classroom to the surprise of my teachers as to how a 2 -grader back then is crooning on old melodies. But, I have always been an old soul. Loved black and white films, songs, and the retro era where music was recorded without the auto-tuner and people knew their passion and spent lives around it.

It’s hard to find the Ghazal singer in the digital age who would match the euphony of what the Ghazal singers brought to this world. Meaningful poetry and thoughts in motion. Mehdi Hassan’s Ranashi Sahi has a harmonizing effect even today, no matter who sings it in tune. If you talk of lasting music, Ghazals of Gulam Ali, Mehdi Hassan, and the legendary ilk can connect you to a soulful music even today.

Here is the modern version of Mehdi Hassan’s Ranashi Sahi

 

Digital Version of Chupke Chupke Raat Din by Gulam Ali
