The Tune Tag


Atul tagged me - and I did this tag in a far different way that I first imagined. I asked my father to do this one for me :)

Somehow felt inadequate attempting this. Although I like music and words a lot, but there was a feeling that I shouldn’t do it at this point in time. Perhaps later, but not now. Perhaps when i've known myself a bit more.

My father is the most important person for me and asking him to do this tag revealed some things that even I didn’t know before. As years go by and you are all grown up, you feel there is nothing new to your parent's lives, yet the many facets they hold within, you can’t even comprehend. Yes Atul, this one is a difficult tag, he took a whole day to complete it ;) And I’m glad I asked him to do this. and thanks, you helped a son know his father better. Here goes:

Your favourite lyricist and the lyrics you remember the most:
Shailendra

Your favourite song on friendship
Diye jalte hain, phool khilte hainbadi mushkil se, duniya mein dost milte hain

Best song portraying life’s emotions; about life, full of life
Main zindagi ka saath nibhata chala gaya; kahan ja raha hai tu ai jaane wale; na main dhan chahoon, na ratan chahoon

Which song are you humming today?
hum bhi hain, tum bhi ho, dono hain amne-saamne

One song which brings tears to your eyes
ab ke baras bhej bhaiya ko babul, saawan mein leezo bulaye; chal ud jaa re panchi; ae mere pyare watan

A song which gives you hope, reason to try again and again, a reason to say that life is beautiful
chal akela, chal akela, tera mela kisne dekha rahi

When you want to be with yourself, silent and content but with music, with song would that be?
ghar aaya mera pardesi; sajan re jhoot mat bolo; mann re! Tu kahe dheer na dheer dhare

If you have to express your love for someone with a song which would that be
chand si mehbooba ho meri kab aisa maine socha tha; hum intezaar karenge, tera kayamat tak, khuda kare ki kayamat ho aur tu aaye

Five songs which you listen to the most
This he didn’t attempted.

Now, as Atul said, the tag didn’t have a rule to tag-back. But I’d so like a few people to do the honours. Dee, Hagrid, Pheebes, Aklant, Twin, Lalitha, Velu, Pino, Dwai, Sigma among others.

Believe me guys, you won’t mind this…

and thanks twin, finally managed a link ;)
