Varsha Thapa – Kavita

The song indeed has the smell of freedom that can be felt through the melody in it and the words. This song feels quite different from other Nepali songs but nevertheless thus may not be of everyone’s type, but for those who love deep, soothing, dreamy music, this is the one worth to be in playlist.

ABOUT THE SONG

In the words of singer, Varsha Thapa, herself, this song is

A self Documentation of a woman celebrating her freedom, solidarity and music, Kavita is an ode to everything that sets her free and brings her back to herself!

The song indeed has the smell of freedom that can be felt through the melody in it and the words. This song feels quite different from other Nepali songs but nevertheless thus may not be of everyone’s type, but for those who love deep, soothing, dreamy music, this is the one worth to be in playlist.

ABOUT THE SINGER

Varsha is a New York based Singer-Songwriter and model, born and brought up in Kathmandu, Nepal. Varsha’s love for music began from a young age. She would volunteer to sing whenever her parents had guests over. Being an introvert, she often struggled to communicate with people so singing became her form of communication as it came more naturally to her.

At the age of eight, she left for boarding school, where she was constantly bullied for her appearance. To cope with rejection and loneliness she began to express herself by writing a journal which soon turned into songwriting, inspired by her own life experiences. And music became her way of communicating with herself and the world. 

In 2018 she co-founded her band called Sita virgin along with guitarist Rob Mastrianni whom she met in New York. They released two songs together “Purpose” and “Shattered” in January and August 2019 subsequently. 

In 2020 Varsha embarked upon her solo career, releasing her first single “Maaya.”

LANY – If this is the last time

“if this is the last time” is a family love letter which comes with an important message: every moment is precious, so treat it as if it is your last.

ABOUT THE BAND

LANY is an American pop band from Los Angeles. The band consists of Paul Jason Klein, Charles Leslie “Les” Priest, and Jake Clifford Goss.

LANY is an acronym for “Los Angeles New York”

We knew we wanted a four-letter word because of design and aesthetic purposes, but as you can imagine, all the four-letter words in the entire world are taken. We moved to acronyms and for a while we thought we would be TTYL, but then we decided we didn’t want to be 13 for the rest of our lives. I eventually thought of the span across the country from L.A. to New York, and at first I was thinking it would be L-A-N-Y, but people kept getting confused on how to pronounce it when I told them, saying things like ‘L-A-and-Y?’ So then we’re like forget it—let’s call ourselves LANY, pronounced Lay-Nee.

ABOUT THE SONG

“if this is the last time” is a family love letter which comes with an important message: every moment is precious, so treat it as if it is your last.

The idea for the track came to me on a flight to Beijing last summer. My uncle buddy (I have his name tattooed on my arm) is getting older, and I don’t get to see him very much because I’m always working and/or on tour. He’s in good health, but you never know what could happen… and I thought to myself, “What if the next time I get to see him is the last time I’ll get to see him?” […] After moving into 2020 and being thrown into a global pandemic and being faced with a new reality, it became clear to me that finishing and perfecting this song was imperative… That maybe this was a song the world could lean on.

— Paul Klein via Instagram (June 2020)

LYRICS

Hey mom, I know we’re gettin’ old
And the lines on our hands have changed
But you still look at me the same
Hey mom, guess what? You’re really tough
And I know you did all you could
Just to make sure my life was good

Sorry for the fights and the tone of my voice
Sorry for the nights when I made the wrong choice
Life is flyin’ by and it’s hittin’ me now
I hope it’s not, but

If this is the last time, please come close
I love you with all my heart, you know
I don’t wanna cry, I’m bad at goodbye
If this is the last time
Then let’s do the things we always do
Like go to the mall and buy some shoes
I don’t wanna cry, I’m bad at goodbye
If this is the last time

Hey dad, what’s up? Miss you so much
Yeah, the shade of your hair has changed
But I look up to you the same

Taught me how to fish, taught me how to ride a bike
Taught me how to love, how to treat a woman right
Life is flyin’ by and it’s hittin’ me now
I hope it’s not, but

If this is the last time, please come close
I love you with all my heart, you know
I don’t wanna cry, I’m bad at goodbye
If this is the last time
Then let’s do the things we always do
Like go for a drive or watch the news
I don’t wanna cry, I’m bad at goodbye
If this is the last time

Hey you, sit back
Don’t go, so fast
If this is the last time, please come close
I love you with all my heart, you know
I don’t wanna cry, I’m bad at goodbye
If this is the last time
So let’s do the things we always do
Or maybe we try something brand new
I don’t wanna cry, I’m bad at goodbye
If this is the last time

If this is the last time
If this is the last time
Oh, if this is the last time
If this is the last time
If this is the last time
Oh, if this is the last time

Exchange Offer – A Short Film To Watch

A short film from India …dramatic like Bollywood but still worth a watch.

Published

on

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!
