Tujhse Naaraz Nahin Zindagi

Hi friends,
After a seemingly long, stressful week, I made some time to record a song earlier today. It has been a while since I have and I really missed picking up that mic and singing :) So, the next question was "what do I sing"??? So many many lovely tunes..and I wanted to sing them all!!! You know how it is..when u get into a mood to sing, u want to sing them all :) Knew that was so not going to after a lot of thinking...major decision making (like it was a life and death matter!!!) I settled on this one...
I always have had a liking for RD songs..and this one especially used to be my favorite when it was new...years ago..and then totally forgot about it.. today I happened to see the track and decided to sing it..:)
Hope u all like it.. Thanks in advance for listening :)

A Tribute

Hi friends,
Hope all of you and your families are safe..I mean, I hope and pray all of you who have families in Mumbai are safe.. This week I thought I'd update the blog with a prayer, Allah Tero Naam.. for the families of all the people who have lost their dear ones in the Mumbai blasts and for those who survived. (Thanks Swati for the forward on Mumbaikars..was so touching..)

Here is one of my all time favorite Ghazal. The recording quality and track are not all that great.. so, was hesitating to put in on my blog. Since Murali mentioned my attempt of Ranjishi sahi, I had some friends email and ask me where they could listen to it. it is. As there is no way I can sing it the way the original is, I have tried my own variation in it.. I was also influenced by Anuradha Paudwal's rendition of the same.
Thanks so much for listening..

Piya Bina

Hi friends,
haven't had a chance to upload any songs the past couple of weeks..have been busy, took a vacation with family and also did a show with Abhijeet on July 4th at Kansas City. He was amazing and what an experience it was!!!
Thought I'd update the blog with this recording which was done a few months ago at a music party.. Not a perfect recording but all the same, thought I'd share. I love this song favorite from this movie.
