Sorry readers, wasn’t able to communicate since many days.. Was busy doing other stuff.. And soon I’ll be back on track, with new posts and articles.
Life has come to a standstill being without meinewalt… Its hard to believe that I didn’t post since past 1 month.. Its interesting reading your stories and e-mails. Thanks for all your love…
I’m gonna go a lil unconnected for a while.. So won’t be posting in the neartime.. But I promise from 17th March I’ll be regularly posting here..
Once again Thank You..!!
Hello readers, I have been getting lots of e-mails and you all are wanting to know what Life ReLived actually is.. It is basically a more modern and more cleaner version of the old school scrapbooking. I have planned to make a digital as well as paper version of the scrapbook.
Through this project, I want to document my life through pics, mementos and many other things.. Its basically collection of moments from my life which I don’t want to forget which I am sharing in a simple yet meaningful way.
So how do I feel about this project and my approach after almost two months? The biggest thing I love about this coming album is that it really shows the progression of time. I am excited to see what it looks like at the end of the year. I am excited to start at the beginning and have in my hands a snapshot of 365 days in my life
I like that it is very low-pressure. If I don’t happen to take a photo on a particular day I am just grabbing a piece of paper collected from the mail, printed from online, etc., or substituting in a photo from the same time period (within two or three days is my limit).
In all, it’s a wonderful way to look back at the year and sparks so many great memories.
In the past few months I had travelled a lot and had some great memories to cherish for lifetime.. But soon the memories were like forgotten. I love playing around with my photos which are not just some moments captured to remember but they are memories to be cherished. I felt that the happy moments which have past need to be some kind of organised and preserved..
I have been trying to figure out a simple strategy for myself relating to do a year long project where I am gonna document my life which i want to re-live.I’m focusing on my daily life as a family. I’m looking at this project as a chance to tell small stories (the small stories that are essentially the big ones when you see them all together). I want to capture little details, conversations, memories.And the next year, 2012 being the last year of my school life I don’t want to forget any of the memories..
Photos & words & the stuff of life is what I am looking to collect and place inside this album.I am not stressing about taking a photo everyday.I am cool with, and looking forward to, adding in other pieces of life: notes, lists, mail,email, etc. Some weeks will be all photos and other weeks will be a mixture of the two.Think the thing that I am really appreciating about this project right now is that it feels laid back. It feels possible and fun.I am not trying to document every little thing. I am trying to capture the essence of the ways in which we live our lives from day to day. Our normal.
Remembering The Moments
If you aren’t already playing along with similar kind of project it’s never to late to begin. There’s no rule that says you need to begin in January.
Through the years I have heard various artists,
but I think nothing can replace the melody a certain few
have created. Be it Queen or MJ to even R.D. Burman,
these phenomenal personalities have left their melodious
harmonies for us which no one can ever replace..
Michael Jackson : This man is the ultimate Music Legend in true sense. I would love to dance to his tunes. I remember even trying to imitate his famous moon walk at parties as a child. Be it Thriller or Billie Jean or even Black or White I could just go on and on about his music that I love. It’s very difficult to pick one through such variety and such harmonies that he has left behind for us . His death was a true loss for us all and I honestly would truly miss listening to his harmonies.
R.D Burman : Universally recognized as Pancham Da this musical maestro made an iconic name for himself through his musical talent. Be it romantic numbers like Yeh Sham Mastani or even Pyaar Diwana Hota Hain to even famous dance hits like Duneya Mein Logon Ko to even Dekha Na Haye Re his harmonies have been passed through generations and I still cannot get enough of it. According to me his music started an entire new genre for the Bollywood Industry as a whole.
Queen : This Rock Band made a phenomenal mark for themselves during the 70’s and 80’s . They had many hits to add to their credit but my favorites among all of their songs would have to be “I want to break Free” , “Crazy Little thing called Love” and even “Under Pressure”. The power in the voice and the music is undoubtedly the best I have ever heard.
Through the years there have been many bands, many voices that have tried to connect to audiences through their musical talent, while I cannot deny that some have made a difference and are even on my playlist in loop, but nothing can beat the above voices that have certainly left a mark in my life!
Music …music is the true melody of life. When you are sad you listen to music, when you are happy you listen to music, when you are in love you express your feelings through music, when you have a heart break music makes you cry. Music is a phenomenal language, a language that universally connects to people’s hearts. To many people in many cultures, music is an important part of their way of life. Ancient Indian Philosophers defined music as tones ordered horizontally as melodies and vertically as harmonies. Well, that being the definition of music, to me music is something that I can’t do without. It helps me emote in true sense, be it happy, sad or even excited for that matter music defines my very mood.

I know its a common title but I felt like it was the best to use it. I felt like sharing this droplet of my little time spent, with you.
Last evening my mom’s Music teacher Smt. Kirit Pandit and her husband Shri. Kishor Pandit had came to our place seeking for a little help. We helped them out and after that what happened was amongst one of the most splendid musical moments of my life.
In return to the favor we made to her, she and her husband sang a great piece of music. The song they sang touched my heart and gave me goosebumps. After they concluded with the song I realized that unintentionally me, my mom and dad were crying ;(
Will be soon posting the recording clips..
Here’s a small audio clip:
