Midnight Wonders

So a friends tweet got me thinking about my favorite tracks that I like to listen to long past midnight. 

While there are several that just one thinking and pondering and philosophical, I can help to list down these as some that easily make the cut. Also adding to their effect is cricket drunk night duty stress.

Shafqat Amanat Ali (Fuzon) - Khamaj (Mora Saiyaan)

Aahista Aahista - Swades

Tango with Lions - In a Bar

Daughter - Candles

Pankhon Ko - Rocket Singh - Salesman Of The Year

Phir Le Aaya Dil - Barfi

Russian Red - Loving Strangers

Yasmine Hamdan - "Beyrouth"

Kaminey meri aarzoo

Dil Gira Dafatan - Delhi-6

Hope is, a sight that flutters through blinds guarding a truth that you are not prepared for.

Fog receds

You know that feeling, when the fog recedes and you can see ahead for miles.
I think I am closer to getting that kind of a view.

A notion apart but thoughts within purged to form a promise.
Unrelenting but earnest, the birds flew from their nest.

Working in the business of ideas, one often wonders what it will take for the ideas to materialise.
But, when you believe in something that you whole hardheartedly there are three things you nee to do daily for that idea.

Protect it.
Nurture it.
Guard it.

The very essence of belief in the idea is what matters. If that triumphs, the idea does too.

Does the universe really have a soul?
When an unwed mother of a four year old,
Sleeps un-sheltered in the February cold,
While men stare, some young some old,
And winter chills her frail young bones.
Stares feel like jagged stones.
Does the universe really have a soul?
