Maahi ve

There is a dearth of good music...& its been like this for some time. In the midst of this barren one or other number comes as breeze of fresh air. Am talking about Faakhir's Mantra. Have heard two tracks from the album & they are brilliant both to sound n see.

3 times in the past 3 weeks, i reach E-square, see the housefull displays & come back. Waiting desperately for the multiplex in Kothrud to come up. Till then...for the Force to come, wait you must.
