New Age-Hindi

Shantanu Moitra has really hit the nail on the head, with this subtle, beautiful ballad, unassumingly found on the soundtrack of Welcome to Sajjanpur (haan, babua! kaa samjhe?). The omnipresent Mohit Chauhan who has apparently vowed to be on every Hindi soundtrack ever made, accompanies Madhushree on "Ek Meetha Marz Dene", which really grows on you after a few listens.


I don't think I would be exaggerating, if I would call this one of the sweetest composed/rendered ballads of '08.

In other news, the bailout bill is out. If you can't access it, try again later - the government financial services site may have crashed due to unprecedented usage - a sign of things to come, I guess ;-)

This album is actually surprising. I thought it would be one of those arty-sharty albums with little staying power but it's actually like the little engine that could.
