We all know the bad side of the monsoon season: flooded roads, crowded trains, muddy pavements, no rickshaws, wet seats. That’s why I enjoy the rain most when I’m indoors: there’s no chance of me getting stuck in muck, and I can listen to the pitter-patter against the windows, which always puts me in a melancholic, contemplative mood. And since I’m obsessed with having the right playlist to go along with my moods, I obviously have a monsoon playlist – not songs that are necessarily about rain, but rather songs that perfectly fit my mood when it’s raining. I thought I’d share my playlist with you, so if you’re stuck indoors thanks to the downpour, you know what to do. :)
Bhaage re mann kahin,
Aage re mann chala,
Jaane kidhar jaanu na.
Akhaan da noor vekh ke,
Akhiyaan cho anju rul de.
Aankhein doobi doobi si surmayee madham,
Jheelen paani paani hai bas tum aur hum.
Tera na hona jaane,
Kyun hona hi hai.
Kaise main chaloon,
Dekh na sakoon,
Tanha, tanha dil apna.
Rakhdein saare jahaan ki kushiyaan tumhare kadmo par,
Dekhe na mudh kar duniya, awaaz de do agar.
Jitna mehsoos karoon tumko,
Utna hi paa bhi loon.
Ab yeh lamha teher jaaye, tham jaaye, bas jaaye,
Hum dono ke darmiyaan haan.
Bin tere, bin tere, bin tere,
Koi khalish hai hawaon mein bin tere.
