I don’t know what algorithm is used when I hit shuffle on my music but sometimes it has the innate ability to play just what I need to hear at the moment. Today it was Lamhe Guzar Gaye from the film Piku. It’s the kind of Hindi song that I just love – soothing, serene, and emotional with lovely and meaningful lyrics.
Lamhe guzar gaye / moments passed
Chehre badal gaye / faces changed
Hum thhe anjaani raahon mein / And I was there in unknown roads
Pal Mein Rula Diya / A moment made me cry
Pal Mein Hasa Ke Phir / And then the next moment made me laugh
Reh Gaye Hum Bhi Raahon Mein / And I was left standing on the roads
There are so many moments in life where you just feel so unsure of it all. Moments where you look around and wonder how you ended up where you are. And on this rainy San Francisco day full of introspection, there is no song that fits what I’m feeling more than Lamhe Guzar Gaye.
