Sitting in my car listening to “Ek Lau Is Tarah Kyun Bhuji Mere Maula…” , watching the wipers idly clean my windshield as the rain drops trickled down, I felt shiver of delight. It’s funny how music makes everything seem so poignant, so surreal. The yellow haze around the streetlights, the pedestrians scurrying towards shelter, the dog curled under a broken down truck, people with umbrellas queuing outside the Andhra Dum Biriyani Center , the glum looking owner of the Iyengar Bakery..for a fleeting moment everything was beautiful. I was perfectly happy, perfectly satisfied with my life.

I wish my life had background music.

Very true! Background music often makes the world seem like a music video ;)

Dinesh, I just saw your link when I was looking up about Mrs Praveena Devarajan, she taught me years ago, am a physician now thanks to the likes of her and Dr Pramila Theodore. She will be missed for a long time by all whose life she touched. This message is probably years late, but thank you for her picture and her memories on your blog,
