I've been maintaining this blog (for better or for worse) over the last eight years. Over these years, its natural evolution has led it into becoming something of a niche place for discussion of music in general and Qawwali in particular. Rather than trying to return my existing blog to its pre-Qawwali eclectic roots, I decided I’d start anew on Tumblr. So if you’re interested in music, Qawwali and subcontinental culture, keep reading/listening/watching/commenting here. For all of the above and everything else under the sun, head on over to my Tumblr page .

P.S ... A Post Exam Poem

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Some poems rhyme
This one doesn't.

Thirty-one days
Drinking cockroach-brew
Was Musi pleased?
No he wasn't.

Now that I've read it
A couple of times
Despite what I said before
This thing actually rhymes.

Cheers !!!


  1. Haha, I wish you a happy ending re: exams :)

    I suppose Musi going to be Dr Musi soon? Or is this the wrong year?

  2. Yup, you guessed it. Dr. Musi in exactly two months time hopefully. Provided I manage to clear my finals. Touch wood!!

  3. The oldest oak, the darkest ebony, the richest teak :D But I'm sure you will anyway...
