Valentine’s Day Playlist

Valentine’s day is all about love, roses, chocolates, gifts and much more. For those looking to find their perfect half or ever had a love, it is the most special day every year.   February 14 for me is the anniversary of a  road accident in 2014. For someone who went through heartbreaks, Valentine’s day is the day of brooding. Being someone who did that twice, here is my list of heartbreak songs for all the heartbroken souls out there.

 

1  Channa Mereya

This one song from Ae Dil Hai Mushkil made it to the list with its superb lyrics.Perfectly explains how one feels after a breakup.

2    Tanhayi

My all-time favourite. Been on top of my playlist ever since I first heard the song. The best medicine for a bad breakup.  Sonu Nigam has never sounded this good.

tanhaayi

 

3  Tu Jaane Na

Atif Aslam does a great job as always. The lover’s agony so strong that it makes our heart bleed. Listen to the song here and shed a tear over your lost love.

tu-jaane-na

 

4  Tujhe Yaad Na Meri Aayi

There is no better song to explain the feeling  when you realize the one you loved truly, madly, deeply has left you for good(practically, when you realize you have been mercilessly dumped  :-))

tujhe-yaad-na-meri-aayi

 

5 Tujhe Bhula Diya

The strength of this song is its tune, crafted superbly, that could break any language barriers. You don’t have to know Hindi to enjoy this song, for anyone who has ever had a broken heart would be captivated by it.

6  Uyire Uyire/Tu Hi Re

This soulful song speaks of love and hope. Sung beautifully by Hariharan. The song from the movie ‘Bombay’ is one of the best by AR Rahman. Both the Hindi and Tamil versions make an impact on the listener.

7   Bin Tere

one song that will bring back memories of beautiful times and make you rethink your decision to break up. The words will stay with you long after the song is over and you are sure to be left dewy-eyed thinking about those love filled days.

bin-tere

 

8   Bhula Dena

This is your best friend if you had a bad breakup and is in need of a serious time out from love.

bhula-dena

 

 

9 Ae Dil Hai Mushkil

Yet another fine track from Ae Dil Hai  Mushkil. Best to listen if you had an awesome relationship that didn’t work well and has still not gotten over it yet.

ae-dil-hai-mushkil

 

 

 

10 Azhalinte Aazhangalil

One song from Malayalam which resonates the pain after having lost one’s lady love.

Also, check out my 10 Songs for the Indian Entrepreneur.

Wanted this list to have 14 songs for the Feb 14. Here are the ones that almost made it to the top ten:

11 Humdard

12 Kabira

13 Sunn Raha Hei Na Tu (Female Version)

14 Jag Soona

Be a Rebel

“If you tremble with indignation at every injustice, then you are a comrade of mine”- Ernesto “Che” Guevara

 

Though I’m not leftist, I’m a big fan of Che.What he said back then is still relevant. The current state of affairs in the education sector in Kerala demands a stronger student protest. The Students Federation of India (SFI) claims to have successfully lead the protest the lead to the removal of a certain individual from the top position at one of the colleges in Kerala. The reality is that they had a soft approach towards the issue for unknown reasons.

The colleges these days, owing to high demand has been resorting to the meanest methods ever to ensure discipline that they forgot where to stop. Colleges alone aren’t the ones to be blamed. The engineering frenzy in Kerala in the past few years had lead to lots of colleges mushrooming all over the state.While some managements are doing great and bringing value to both students and the society, others run colleges for a variety of other purposes. This has brought a question all over the state. Is Kerala God’s own country or Engineer’s own country?

 

The suicide of Jishnu Pranoy, which sparked widespread protest all over Kerala shed light on the unruly behaviour of managements towards students. How can one even imagine colleges where the students get beaten up by the authorities for every silly reason?  This is when student organisations become relevant. The recent stir resulted in a Stop Memo being issued to Tom’s College of Engineering by the Kerala Technical University. I had a friend who dropped engineering for good from that college when it was called  Visweswarayya Engineering College.

 

 

Let more good institutions come up and take the education system in Kerala to a new better level. The government should focus more on improving the existing ones which have scope for growth than giving sanctions for more substandard ones.

Another quote from Che to top it,
“Revolution is not an apple that falls when it is ripe.You have to make it fall.”

 

 

WordPress.com or WordPress.org?

Been wondering for long if I should self host this blog. Though WordPress.com has been helping me write whatever I want on this space for free(Yes, Since 2013!) , of late the free blog option had more limitations imposed on it. No videos, no plugins, and much more.

Now wanting to move out, I think I should ask all the followers before I do. Is it really worth the effort? unsaidmessages.wordpress.com was one bookmark on my browser that I wanted to keep clicking.

Moving out to another domain means being somewhere unfamiliar.
