i wonder what has gotten into me lately.
i cannot believe im saying this.

Yeh Jo Halka Halka Saroor Hai,
Yeh Teri Nazar Ka Kasoor Hai,
Kay Sharab Peena Sikha Diya,
Teri Behki Behki Nigah Nai ,
Mujhe Ik Sharabi Bana Dia.

[ at a glance from the cup-bearer
i gulped the whole cup of wine in one draught
and thus got intoxicated ]


Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.


i used to think this sorta music was for lame-assed suckers,
or old men waiting for death to come claim them.

noooo. no oh no.
man. i was so so wrong. judgemental.

one song is enough to kill you.
i dont know about his other songs,
but this one is next level shit, i tell you.

partly coz it makes me feel absolutely numb,
partly coz the lyrics are emotionally drenched,
partly coz his voice pierces thy heart,
partly coz it reminds me of a moron who lives in my soul,
and refuses to evaporate.

im still hunting for the Jeff Buckley version.
and im still waiting for him to evaporate...


...knowing it aint ever happening.

Indeed you were wrong..you were so very much wrong about this genre & about him but i am glad your opinion's changed..indeed his voice & his tracks are highly addictive..

i like this song. i always have.
It is just wicked.

Evaporation is the process that takes time but it does happen eventually.
I know good things are just around the corner for you.
Take care!

Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan has got magical voice. Though never heard more of his songs other than what he sang in movies in India, but he s got the messemerizing voice.

and the songs kill you when the wordings relate to what you feel at the moment.

You have been a wonderful writer Zaby, truely awesome!!!!

Take care,

Ashu
