Best Songs of Bollywood in 2008

with 8 comments

I know we are nearing the end of the first month of the year and my post is a bit late to start with. But still I wanted to do a list of sort for the best songs, or rather the songs which I liked in the last year.

So, here I present the list of songs that my ears fell for. Also, you must acknowledge the fact that this is a personal list and is not in anyway guided by any other person except me. Everyone has an opinion…isn’t it? 😉


Kaise Mujhe Tum Mil Gaye – Ghajini

Now I really never expected that such a song could be made. Really such heart filling emotions…Rehman is the ‘real’ magician.


Tu Muskura Jahaan Bhi Hai – Yuvraaj

The emotions are so pure in the song. And that is what makes it a winner.


Tashan Mein – Tashan

The most rocking song of the year. No matter how many people have a negative bias for Tashan. I just love it.




Jashn – e – Bahara – Jodha Akbar

A classical beauty. Its so soothing to here this song when you are all by yourself.


Guzarish – Ghajini


Kabhi Kabhi Aditi – Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na

I have been an old fan of this song. Read this




Jugni – Oye Lucky Lucy Oye!!

Raw. Crude. F’ol’kingly MANLY…..Men Are Back!!!


Behka – Ghajini


Rock on – Rock On!!


Tu Hi Toh Meri Dost Hai – Yuuvraaj

Backlit Vertical DS.inddjannat-poster1dostana-wallpaper1


Singh is king – Singh is Kinng

Crudeness of the song wins it for me….and SINGHS now have their very on anthem.


Socha Hai – Rock On


Khuda Jaane – Bachnaa Ae Hasino


Aahista Aahista – Bachna Ae Hasino


Jaane Kyun – Dostana


Sexy Lady – Race

😉 (Its all about wickedness honey!)


Jannat Jahan – Jannat

A damn ambitious song. Was absolutely spot on with the emotions that the song was supposed to portray.


Tere Bina –Superstar



Get On The Floor – Yuuvraaj

Thats about it all. I have really no issues if anyone has any problems with my list.


A promise is a promise

I have been not known much to keep my promises, but this one was easy. In one of my earlier posts titled 46 things to do before I die, I had committed that I shall dedicate a page on my blog to this endeavor of mine – of having a list of things which I want to accomplish before God calls me.

So…I have kept my promise and setup a dedicated page Things to do before I die. Now you can keep track of my life’s achievements through this page.

46 Things To Do Before I Die

with 8 comments

To tell the truth, I did not sit down to write this post in particular. It just happened that, late in the night, my eyes were as red as the stocks of the recessionary US markets and I was just about to switch myself off. It was then in my half asleep brain, that a powerful thought came. A thought, which asked me to jot down the stuff I want to do or want to have before I die. Seems easy…isn’t it?

Things to do

Ever tried making such a list? I did. And I bet it was damn ‘not so easy’ as it seems at first.

There are a few things I have been crossed out. Obviously they have been accomplished. As of now, I could only think of 46 things, but this list, is far from complete. And to tell the truth, I would never want to complete it. Because the things that are still uncrossed will keep me driving ahead. I just want to keep adding things.  

The main reason for me putting my valuable effort in a really silly list is that, I have still not been able to understand the purpose of my existence, or what I want to do with my life. But there is one thing that I have realized. And that is that I have still not done enough with my life.

So, I decided to put down a list of things I want to do before I die. This list is neither complete nor in any particular order. And soon, I would be putting up a dedicated page of ‘The things I want to do before I die’ on this blog. So everyone can track my updated list.
