Exchange Offer – A Short Film To Watch
A short film from India …dramatic like Bollywood but still worth a watch.
Written and directed by Saunak Mitra, “Exchange Offer” is a Hindi short film that portrays generation gap and loneliness in old age beautifully. It’s synopsis reads “Shiv Kumar Pant – a retired school principal of St. Stephan’s, Delhi, lives with his caretaker, Bisveswar as his son, Rishabh, lives in California with his wife and a one-year-old son. Leading a mundane life, Mr. Pant has found solace in poetry writing, typing on his old computer. One day, the computer suddenly goes off. He asks Rishabh to make a complaint to the manufacturing company to send a service engineer to repair the computer. The rendezvous with the service engineer at his door brings to him an incredible Exchange Offer and a bouquet of nostalgia and surprises.”
This movie is a great, layered story on the complexities of relationships with the passage of time, the haunting aspect of getting old alone, the technological gap and the desire and the necessity of change. The story builds up slowly and takes you in an emotional roller coaster but at the end will leave you feeling satisfied from within. This movie features M. K. Raina, Taher Shabbir and Surendra Rajan in the lead roles.
Without any spoilers, this is what we can say! Go ahead and give this a watch! And do let us know how you feel afterwards with your reviews in the comments section!
Magadh by tShunya
A song not meant for everyone
Some songs are not meant to be popular or viral nor is composed for everyone to hum or sing. They are like an abstract art, not meant to be obvious.
The song Magadh, tShunya, is one of the kind. It does not fit in any genre because its uniqueness itself is a genre. According to the video description, the song is on a historical fact about a king….
Leave it, not going to reveal here. Watch it, read the lyrics and find out yourself.

Dhaka Dhoti, a rap from madesh
This is how diversity feels like.
After a long time, found a rap from Nepal that could give us goosebumps and awe feeling.
What a beat, what a strike. Wish video was much better; seems a budget video.
Song like “Lollypop Lagelu” had set a different kind of stereotype about songs from madhesh and their music. No more. After listening till the end, you too will go like “Never thought Bhojpuri Rap could be this lit.” Well, it is not really Bhojpuri, but mix of.
This is how diversity feels like. <3

Suna kan kholi toraboli himal pahad terai k
Bhedbhab je karela oka khichke lapeta
abbb sunal jja madhesh me Hiphop kaisan hola
Bisswome dekh bhaii dusarrkaa
sorgalok nepal jekar nam dharm saskirti ritiriwaj sabke
aapan aapan algeba maan saan
parkirtike bardan aafan saundarta se mohit
kaileba sabke dheyan santike muhan

himal pahad milke tarai banaola sabke
ek panna palta ke dekh bir emandar yodhdha
nepaligorkhali ithas me paibe
ek aake dekha santi ke bhagwan gautam buddha lumbini
mahan sitaD mata ke janma sthal janakpur dham
bhail eho hamar swades k san
bhedbhab k nam pe nakar badnam
e desh ke nam tu aisan kar kam
jekase bane tor aapan Nam pahichan badhe
dehsake san dekhe wale kare wah wah sab log jan
Namskar bhaiiya ramram ke satha suruhola
subha ke kam hasi majag gussa k sat
bitela sabke sam aafan aafan plan
kurta or dhoti sirpe dhaka topi
gamchha ba hamnike san kisan
aannke ke bhandar khetipati peba nirbhar
hamni ke jahan tarai aadibasi tharu madhesi
hamni ke pahichan berrz
Aaige madesh me alag san se
Lolypop nai tyo kina pewar hiphop lai china aage
Bhaike e badhiya gana suna chala
eMandari bacha kasam pura karekhatir

lollypop me khali nahii hiphop me

khada rahele xati tani peyar je kare okase peyar ham
kareni bhedbhab je kare kare to hojala dusman
Suna kan kholi tora

bhedbhab je karela oka khichke lapeta
aba sunal ja madhesh me hiphop kaisan hola
