Psychedelic Vocals

Where do Psychedelic’s get the vocal lyrics from was my main question when I heard the power packed definitions about the song and the way they described the meaning of the songs.

Psychedelic trance, often referred to as psytrance, is a form of trance music that developed from goa trance in the early 1990s. Trance generally has a fast tempo, in the range 140 to 150 beats per minute (bpm). 

It is not at all an easy task to find out where are the vocals from. They can be original or they …

Speakers go to war


Alright Folks!! Let’s start by saying. It’s not about any speakers who make an hour long lecture on the dais without the familiarity of what they are saying, untruthful assurances and empty words which bring no good to anyone. It’s my understanding. You are free to pour your observation out. Overlook it why am I even concerned to write about something which I am not interested in.

Let me start again by saying, this is about the speakers which blast music. First it was the Walkman, follow…

Unpublished Writings

Every writer in their lifetime have certain writings which never came up to the world for a specific reason. Those reasons are only known to the writer, they were written for a purpose but did not make it to the readers for ambiguity.

A writer always has his mind running on certain thoughts to write something. When I get a good line which may be incomplete but I would write it down somewhere to make it a quote or a blog out of the thought. At times those written lines are never completed beca…

Why do I Blog

Earlier periods and even now people have the practice of lettering their private journal which they keep it furtively to them, which has sequence of actions in day to day lifetime. May be significant or inconsequential. I too had this practice of writing my journal with all senseless linguistic which made no sagacity at all. I would say for a matter of fact I did not even construct sentences, they were just pointers as a memory of what I did. Ultimately I stopped writing on paper.

I started w…

Magic, not miracles

We are all aware what magic is. Being a child we have at least once been a part of a magic show, as children usually don’t know how things are happening and get fascinated by it.

Meaning of magic is the art or practice of using charms, spells, or rituals to attempt to produce supernatural effects or control events in nature. Usually we see magicians chanting the spells and doing something unusual which makes us say wow!

Here is the shortest story I would write which is not much to descri…

The banyan tree

We all recognize the Banyan tree which is the national tree of India. It is said to be an immortal tree. In India you hear a lot about the banyan tree for being divine, having spirits in it which are good spirits, bad spirits or mischievous spirit – It can be a home to much more then we can think of or much more then we have heard of. I have also heard elders affirming do not play near the banyan tree after sunsets because the spirits rouse at that time.

The blind and his faith

It is believed that places of devotion have firm supremacies which one senses when they enter and it would not be immoral to say I feel it as well. I may not be too pious but undoubtedly do have belief in the extreme power. The power that is never seen or heard but do exist in the form of some feeling we now and then feel within us for some purpose. It is said “Believe in the invisible” which actually today’s world would not follow which is precise; why to trust something you don’t see. But pu…

Walk at the Graveyard!

A place that not too many are charmed with is a graveyard. It’s a place the deceased rest in harmony endlessly leaving the world and relaxing with god for perpetuity. Death is the last choice, probably there may exist a life after death that I am not certain of. But we cannot critic whatsoever as no one knows what occurs after the soul departs for God’s blissful Abode.

Late-night times on Mumbai Roads

It’s been practically 28 years, I’ve heard this phrase which says “Mumbai – The city that never sleeps.” It was an insignificant desire I wanted to accomplish just to give my soul some happiness and finally I could do this on one weekend. It was 12.45 am when I met one of my friend who continuously guaranteed me to take me places out on the roads in Mumbai at darkness. I always kept telling him I wish to stray around doing just nothing but stray myself on the roads like a free bird.
