I am a ’90s kid and I’ve grown up learning a lot about love from various Sonu Nigam songs with the word ‘Deewana‘ in it. From my first crush to my heartbreak – his songs have kept me company and soothed me during many such firsts. In fact, being someone who loves music, I’ve always idolized as well as loved him. Naturally, I was quite excited to see what he had in store for us in this new video by Being Indian. After watching it, I was pleasantly surprised. Dressed like an old street-side singer, Sonu goes unrecognized for hours on the streets of Mumbai. Watch.
Thank you, Mr. Nigam for teaching us this life lesson. As he has rightly pinpointed, most of us are so busy chasing something or the other that we forget to cherish the little joys of NOW. As Evan Taylor in August Rush says, ‘The music is all around us, all you have to do.. is listen’. I recently started singing again after many years, just to celebrate something that I’ve perhaps been gifted with.
So guys, cease the day and do everything that you love TODAY instead of waiting for tomorrow and live every moment to the fullest.
