I have been writing hindi poetry as a hobby for a while now. in 2005, I wrote four lines, mostly to start off my recital in local "kavi-sammelan" events in Bangalore. They were very well received, and garnered a bit of attention online. A few people who read it, wanted to use the lines into a song, but mostly I have been lazy and did not work towards it. One day, the director Nitin Chandra and music director pinged me on Facebook, expressing their interest in this poem. A couple days later, I wrote more lines around it and with some more contribution from the other two, we had a song ready. As a poet, It is always euphoric to have your work turned into a song. Specially If a rockstar like Mohit Chauhan sings it! I am fortunate to have been given an opportunity to work on this song for the upcoming movie Once Upon A Time In Bihar. As a Bihari, I share and have lived the concerns this film is addressing. Enjoy!
