Bollywood Monsoon Melodies

Finally, it’s raining. The delayed monsoon is welcomed with extra excitement and I feel like dancing in the musical downpour. So-called culture and unkind age are restricting my actions and I’m turning my YouTube on for the ultimate Bollywood Monsoon Melodies. Music gives a meaningful direction to our otherwise mechanical life. Those who follow my blog seriously know very well that I’m a self-confessed Bollywood fan.
Bollywood music never fails to entertain people, specifically Indians, when they are in a mood to celebrate an occasion.

Rain. Rain is given loving philosophical definitions by poets. Man has always been fascinated by the freshening showers falling from the desperate sky. An early human with a beating heart must have uttered a couplet or two when rain blessed Earth with sparkling showers.
Such rhythmical segments (might have) created songs. Bollywood takes the song definition more seriously and to the another level. We have actors and actresses dancing and acting as the songs play in the background. Not to mention the amazing lip-sync; I couldn’t believe they’re not singing for themselves when I was a child. They actually sing or act, that’s secondary, my love for Bollywood songs comes first. Music lovers have a playlist for every occasion and I’m not an exception. When it rains, my fingers scroll through the monsoon songs and stop at the favourites list. Some of my all-time favourite monsoon songs are shared with you:)

P.S- Videos are available in the hyperlinks. Don’t miss the magic of Bollywood Monsoon Melodies ❀️

🐞Pyaar Hua Ikraar Hua Hai, Pyaar se phir kyun darta hai dil..

The rain-song from the golden years of Bollywood starring Raj Kapoor and Nargis and the movie is ‘Shree 420′!

🐞Ik Ladki bheegi bhagi si, Soti raton mein jaagi si..

Loved the chemistry between Kishore Kumar and Madhubala in this beautiful song from the movie ‘Chalti ka Naam Gaadi’!

🐞 Rimjhim Gire Saawan, Sulag sulag jaye mann..

Another magical rain song with Amitabh Bachchan and Moushami Chatterjee; the movie is ‘Manzil’!

🐞 Aaj Rapat Jaayen toh humein na uthayio, Humein jo uthayio to khud bhi phisal jayiyo..

You can’t miss the fun song starring Amitabh Bachchan and Smita Patil from the movie ‘Namak Halal’!

🐞 Ghanan Ghanan ghir ghir aaye badra..

The happiness of poor farmers reflects in this rain song from ‘Lagaan’; starring Mr perfectionist, Aamir Khan and team!

🐞 Kate nahi kat te yeh din yeh raat, Kehni thi tumko jo dil ki baat..

The romantic song where Anil Kapoor plays ‘Mr India’, the invisible man, created quite a stir. Sridevi looks stunning.

🐞 Lagi Aaj Sawan ki phir woh jhadi hai..

One more favorite of mine! Vinod Khanna and Juhi Chawla in ‘Chandni’!!

🐞 Tip Tip barsa paani, paani ne aag lagai..

One of the best song of the 90s. Watch Akshay Kumar and Raveena Tondon in ‘Mohra’!

🐞 Koi ladki hai, Jab woh hasti hai,
Baarish Hoti Hai Chhanar Chhanar Chhumchhum..

Aha! Who can forget the dances of lady beautiful Madhuri Dixit and handsome Shahrukh Khan in ‘Dil To Pagal Hai’!?

🐞 Rimjhim Rimjhim, Rumjhum Rumjhum. Bheegi Bheegi rut mein tum hum hum tum..

Passionate rain Melody starring Anil Kapoor and Manisha Koirala from the movie ‘1942, A Love Story’!

🐞Barso re megha barso

Doe-eyed Aishwarya Rai dances like waves of the ocean. The movie wasGuru’, based on the life of Dhirubhai Ambani.

🐞 Yeh mausam ki baarish

I’m in love with this song ‘Yeh mausam ki baarish, yeh baarish ka paani’ from the movie ‘Half Girlfriend’. The song is still present in my phone as one of the favourites.

Chandigarh- City Beautiful with a Heart

Chandigarh- City Beautiful with a Heart

A person with Punjab connection resonates with the simple mention of the city beautiful- Chandigarh. I am one such fellow. Internationally known for its planning and architecture, Le Corbusier’s creation Chandigarh is one of the cleanest and the happiest cities in India. In one of the articles, BBC named Chandigarh as the perfect city in terms of architecture, modernisation and cultural growth.
Back in the 1890s, the first architect of the city Albert Mayer challenged ‘American claim that rejected the City Beautiful concepts’ and determined to build one. The city, later completed by Le Corbusier in 1949 replaced Lahore, the capital city of Punjab before partition.

One can find a number of ‘The Open Hand sculptures’ in Le Corbusier’s Chandigarh, a sign of peace and reconciliation. Chandigarh derived its name from the ancient temple of an Indian Goddess- ‘Chandi Mandir’ in Panchkula.

The city has produced many renowned personalities. Industry exposure, the freedom of expression and a great many opportunities, Chandigarh attracts learners and achievers from all over the country.
Ayushman Khurrana, Abhinav Bindra, Yami Gautam, Yuvraj Singh, Bani J, Sachin Bansal- Binny Bansal and Gul Panag are a few of the famous personalities from the city:)

My Connection with Chandigarh

When I was a child, Chandigarh was my parents’ favourite place to visit on weekends. Just two hours drive from our home and complete with amazing things to do, Chandigarh carved a deep influence on my mind and heart.
The city is well-planned and the breathtaking modern architecture takes you on a dream ride. My all-time favourites are Rock Garden, Rose Garden, Sukhna Lake, Musical fountain, Sector 17 market and Japanese Garden.

Rock Garden

It was the creative mind of Nek Chand who built sculptures from waste materials like broken crockery, glass and bangles. The man raised the 13-acre empire of pottery covered concrete structures. Rock Garden was opened to the general public in 1986. A workforce of 50 labourers was allotted to Nek Chand to develop the garden.

You will be surprised to know that Rock Garden is the second most popular place in India after Taj Mahal.

Sukhna Lake

Sukhna Lake is the place Chandigarh people love to boast about. Le Corbusier created the lake for the care of body and spirit. Seasonal steam ‘Sukhna Choe’ was dammed to develop beautiful Sukhna Lake. Tranquil lake, green patches and picturesque view, Sukhna lake is adored by one and all. It is frequently visited by tourists, health-conscious walkers, families seeking quality-time together and enthusiastic youngsters.

Japanese Garden

Japanese Garden is counted as one of the best places to visit in Chandigarh. Japanese architecture, Pagoda tower, meditation hut and Japanese food; Japanese Garden takes you to Japan without travelling too far. Buddha idol and other sculptures make your visit enjoyable.

Laser Musical Fountain

You can’t afford to miss the Laser Musical Fountain in the happening market of sector 17. Colourful patterns of light dancing with the fountain water presents a breathtaking view. Wait for the night to fall for the exclusive light and sound show. It will be a precious addition to your cherished memories:)
