"Suhana safar aur ye mausam haseen.."
Madhumati. circa 1958.
What is it about the lines that resonate?
Specially the chorus, that sort of echoes?
Or "sa sa ni ni reni pa ni, ma ma ni ma ni pa pa ni" from the Dil Se title track.
Haunting.
I sing this when I'm walking back home.

Prayers for my ill friend, pls.

Thanks for the inspiration- I have thoughts of work swarming in my head these days...can't wait to return to baroda-first for 9 days, then,after another round in Dxb, probably permanently back.:)
