हर घड़ी साँस आती है....ज़िंदगी कहलाती है....
July , 2020
Now I don’t know about you all, but as soon as the seasons change, my playlist changes. I have a playlist for summer, for winter, for autumn (my favourite season), for spring and for monsoon (my second favourite). I don’t listen to a lot of Hindi songs but suddenly I thought of a song which fit the rains perfectly. 'Tum Se Hi'.I bet you all know this one.
“तुमसे ही दिन होता है
सुरमई शाम आती
तुमसे ही, तुमसे ही….”
I know you sang along to that. Now imagine sitting in your balcony or your windowsill, while it’s raining, with a cup of your favourite hot beverage (or cold if you’re trying to be Elsa and the cold doesn’t bother you anyway), with Tum Se Hi playing softly in the back.You know what I call that? Bliss.
I don’t know if it’s just me but I always match the songs I listen to, to the weather or the mood outside my window. If it’s just me, I suggest you all do that from now on. The next time it is raining, play Tum Se Hi in the background and sit. Just let the song mingle with the raindrops outside and let your thoughts waft along with them. Think about everything that makes you happy and think about how your day would be incomplete without these. Get lost in the rain, your thoughts and the song. Trust me, it will make you feel amazing. And once it dies, you’ll only have yourself, the movie ‘Jab We Met’, and Mohit Chauhan to thank.
