What are your favourite chai partners?

Food, Indian Belly

Ask most Indians and they’d agree that there’s something about the garma garam chai that makes chilly winter mornings warmer and sultry summer evenings tolerable.

On weekdays, when you’re running around like a headless chicken the same cup of chai (or cha as my maternal grandmother would say) when multiplied by three or sometimes four helps keep your sanity intact.

Hawa Hawai!

Bollywood, Nostalgia

Which version of the song, Hawa Hawai do you like more? The one with Sridevi from Mr.India or this funky, new one? At present, we’re playing the Shaitan version, on loop. We can’t decide which one we love more.

Bulleh Shah in a modern avatar!

Bollywood, Over a cup of chai

Two individuals, one aim: to create echoes that resonate across cultural, racial and religious boundaries, transforming communities through happy, soulful music. Vocalist / audio engineer Hari Singh and trained Hindustani classical vocalist Sukhmani Malik describe their music as the translation of various cultural experiences into pure thought. Emanating from places deep within their hearts, the sounds are blissful.
