“कौन बीज बोता है यारो, फल ये कौन चखे,
ये जग जंतर मंतर माया कौन ये खेल रचे…
कौन चढाए रोज ये सूरज, पवन कौन फूंके,
ऋत् जो आए जाए निरंतर, कौन हिसाब धरे…”
Loosely translated: “[tag]Who[/tag] sows the seed, who tastes the fruit? the world is full of mysteries and puzzles, who sets the game? Who makes the sun rise everyday, who blows the wind? Who makes the seasons occur, who keeps track of all this??”
With a clear sky like that, and listening to [tag]Indian Ocean[/tag]’s song “Kaun” from the album Kandisa, who wouldn’t get into a [tag]trance[/tag]? It rained few hours back and miraculously the sky is now clear as crystal. The air is filled with an aroma that reminds me of the rainy season back home and the large moon is beaming through dry trees as if it is greeting me.
For some time I lost track of everything. [tag]Time[/tag] seemed to lose its importance as I forgot everything about the pressing deadlines, hungry stomach, empty bank accounts and such worldly concerns. It was so fulfilling to simply stand there on the open field outside my apartment, bathing in the soothing moonlight. Don’t we all need such [tag]spiritual[/tag] cleansing once a while? And such things occur unplanned. Wonder who does it…
I must thank Vaarun for infecting me with this amazing music. At the same time, I must blame him for the deadlines I missed due to this new addiction.
Highly recommended albums of Indian Ocean band: “Black Friday”, “Desert Rain”, “Jhini” and “Kandisa”
