Life is a long, wondrous and continuous introduction to yourself.

The act of creation — it leads me to unknown places. Only to make me realize that all was known, always. And yet, I live every day with the hope that I’ll explore, create and grow into someone new. Because what’s life if not a long, wondrous and continuous introduction to yourself.

In this journey, music lives by my side. I find melody in my writing, and a lot of writing in my melodies. Sometimes, I hear songs in the bubbles of boiling tamarind water. Or in the stroke of red paint over the canvas. Or in the giggles of a child after a good joke. Tunes find their way even into my boredom, curiosity and the thoughts in between. And a rhythm taps into my sorrow, so it can take the leap to laughter.

Such is music. Such is life — yours and mine.


Mus.e.c & Javed Bashir

Is music a super complicated science? Do musicians themselves find music tough and difficult to crack? My adulation for music and musicians makes me wonder if i haven't known it enough. Because if i were to understand it, i would not fall prey to mesmerizing tunes without attaching reason to it or, will i? I do flirt and fantasise about music intermittently. However, Javed Bashir has captured my ears a little stronger than mere attraction. The clear and coarse voice resonates melodious notes to leave me spellbound.

From Aaj Natha Laeo to Chal Diye (with zeb and haniya), he rules the moments when his music is around.

And when i listen to his voice before i embrace sleep in the evening, i am provoked to hunt him down and have those sound waves all for myself. I bow to the magic of your vocal chords.
