I always think of ARR music as an old wine. It takes time and couple of re-listening to really appreciate it. I’m liking it more and more. Yuvraaj music rocks, though I will still not put it up there with let’s say Akabra-Jodha.

Déjà vu

Yesterday I got the audio cd of Yuvraaj. The first song on the cd was ‘tu hi to Meri dost hai’…after just reading the text I said to myself – Oh, No. Exact reaction, some 10 years back when I first heard ‘Jungle me Koyal Boli’. To me the lyrics are of paramount importance, I can easily trash ‘good to listen’ song if the lyrics isn’t upto the mark. I listened to this one from Yuvraaj and it did not click. However as is often a case, I always try to give a second hearing to ARR’s songs. And today morning it sounded completely different. Same as that of ‘Jungle me Koyal Boli’.

Overall, it is a good album. I would not rank it with the ‘Akbar Jodha’ or ‘Lagaan’, or ‘Roja’ but good enough. Recommended.

12000 and counting…

no battery? So what…

I try to take a morning walk everyday and have my camera with me. Yesterday evening I took out the batteries to recharge and completely forgot about it. September/October is a fantastic time for landscape photography (my favorite season-moody, foggy, different colors) here in germany. Today however, I just roamed around in the forest and pretended my camera is working whenever I felt like making an image. It was really different and liberating. No worries about whether I’ve nailed it, just plain happiness of making an image.

Let the games begin
