Or should I call it Memoria :)

Digging back to the tunes in the 1990's in Hindi film music, I must say it was indeed a golden period (ARR apart). With evergreen songs from 1942: A Love Story, Khamoshi and many more movies, we had Madhuri, Manisha, Kajol, Juhi Chawla ruling the scenes then.

Bahon Ke Dharmiyan, Aaj Mein Upar, and Mausam Ke Sargam make Khamoshi such a special album. Same with Ghoonghat Ki Aad Se from Hum Hai Rahi Pyar Ke, Saajan(most songs), a couple of entertaining ones from Ishq, Chup Gaya from a Kajol-movie, and the long list goes on. I recently enjoyed watching a lot of these songs, thanks to Youtube and was reminiscent of those school days. :)

Though my music interests have changed a lot in the past 3-4 years, I am still able enjoy these songs, most times. They had the E-value (not the E-value from the BLAST), the Entertaining value. Most songs these days lack that and project skin and more skin. And another factor adds to it too, the NOSTALGIA factor! Probably in 2017 I might enjoy the songs from 2007, the way I am enjoying the songs from 1997 now :)

Phew! No blog for an entire month! Probably shows the vettiness no longer exists and mid-sem crisis has taken it's toll on me.... kidding.

Of late, I've been too busy and haven't found time to write something here. However, I've been writing other stuff for long. It's a report for my qualifying exam scheduled later on in the month. That's a different experience totally and I have begun to like it too. After all, writing is an art by itself. Also, I have been writing codes for my algorithm, which is interesting too.

Haven't watched too many movies to comment on them either, but watched Johnny Gaddar which was a good and different approach. I attend grihapraveshas of the houses of a two friends, which indeed was so relaxing from this hectic schedule.

Not a great Diwali/Deepavali either, since the report-writing will take a lot longer than expected.

However,it's been a nice week without the usual teaching, so have lots of time to sleep in the mornings (something that I love to do).

Winter has not begun here yet and the pleasant weather continues.

Will probably write something soon! Got quite a few ideas to write on!
