Ghazals..

..I dont understand them, but there’s google for that.

In Infosys, information security regulations have really tightened over last 3-4 years, Im told. So, most of us music enthusiasts are enslaved by what our forfathers aka ex-software engineers, now PLs/PMs uploaded on the network back in the day. So when you join a team here and get your cubicle, a huge folder labelled “Music” finds its way on your hard drive via some friend. After you filter it for filthy britney pop/westlife/all that jazz, and mind you that’s a gargantuan task, there is still much left.

you find a lot of vintage stuff, all genres. When i moved to chandigarh, a friend passed another huge folder i earlier did not have- ghazals. to put it mildly, I’ve been bloody hooked last 2 months. That’s all i hear. I’ve actually googled chitra singh’s ghazals (mirza ghalib written) to figure stuff out, but all i can say is that before this, i was missing out on some exquisite poetry. it will take the bob dylans and led zeps of the west another century to get there. Make that two. (i like dylan btw)
