Yours Forever

Filed under: Chicken Soup For The Soul,personal,Random — Kaveeta Oberoi Kaul @ 12:01 pm

“All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark.” Swami Vivekananda

To be fallible is to be human too. But if you want to feel the power in you and your potential to be what you were mean to be, all you have to do is read Swami Vivekanada.

I am a voracious reader, but have rarely been inspired as much by any other. To top it, all of his works are speeches he has delivered, which have been collected and compiled. (more…)

And Now Banks Take Over Piggy Banks

Filed under: India n Me,Random,This Gets To Me — Kaveeta Oberoi Kaul @ 12:18 pm

Times are fast-a- changing..for better or for worse, depends on which side of the fence you find yourself.

As parents, all is not hunky dory. Our brats are under focus, scrutiny and attack, if I may add. Close on the heels of a report that kids in Mumbai receive the highest amount of pocket money,they naturally earn the privilege of being the highest spenders. The ad gurus, fast to learn and quick to implement have decided to address their ads to the ‘new entrants’ on the block. The savvy young breed of decision makers, our kids. (more…)

• Today, tommorow and yesterday there’ll be one heart that would always beat for you. You know Whose?

Aamir Khan-From Reel to Real

Filed under: India n Me,Of men women and Eunuchs,opinions,Random — Kaveeta Oberoi Kaul @ 12:25 pm

Aamir khan apparently has been impressed with Medha Patkars Narmada Bachao Andolan’s fight for the villagers of Gujarat, So much that he has decided to join hands.

While Medhas fight began almost a decade back, when she demanded that the villagers be re-habilitated in direct proportion to what they were supposedly to be deprived, in the construction of the Sardar Sarovar dam, Aamir has decided to pitch in now. (more…)

O.P.Nayyar…Not forgotten

Kaveetaa Kaul

We are proud to be the largest collection of O.P. Nayyar fans on the web..Welcome!




Update: This post on O P Nayyar carries the unique distinction with the highest number of views and comments on any maestro on the web.You can listen to the podcast of my tribute in a programme dedicated to the Legendary O.P. Nayyar on PodioIndia Ep 31


Updated: 28th Jan07: A legend is no more.Shri O.P. Nayyar has passed away. An era has come to a close with him. None can replicate him and never will there be another Nayyar saab..May his soul rest in peace and in the knowledge that he is loved, admired, respected and will never be forgotten..

The finality of death is stark. One cannot die with the dead.. at best one can mourn for them.. Let us feel solace in the fact that he perhaps lives on in his melodies, and will continue to do so for aeons. The sadness that creeps in at such news is beyond mere words.

He suffered a cardiac arrest all of a sudden, probably still under the care of his foster family, in Thane..the destituteness of his last 12 years, when his family allegedly forsake him, a witness to the vagaries of life…sad but true.


Who can forget the lilting, romantic numbers unforgettable renderings, which had a distinct feel, recognisable in the choice of accompaniments, the piano, sax, acoustics and then the soulful strain of melody..

*Pukarta chala hoon main.. galli galli bahaar ki..bas ek shaam zulf ki..bas ikk nigaah pyar ki (more…)
