Back to digging gems from the YouTube treasure trove. Sort of in the mood for Raag Yaman/ Kalyan. Perfect for the evening or the first quarter of the night. This one is just incredible. Chupa Lo Yun Dil Mein Pyaar Mera. I suddenly thought of it and it came to me, flooding little spaces.
The lyrics are fantastic. I won’t even attempt translating them. Another beautiful number in the saam raag - Chandan sa badan. Unfortunately, a particular advert for some sandalwood-turmeric gooey tube in the 80s ruined this song for me for a brief while.
A Yaman/ Kalyan feast would be incomplete without this beautiful song – Mharo Pranam by Kishori Amonkar. The same song by Shobha Gurtu sounds simply divine and effortless – but I can’t seem to find it online.
