Bollywood on Guitar, Kapil Srivastava Guitarist

Friends,

Enjoy my season 2, the unforgettable Bollywood playlist. This season is a collection of 5 selective tunes from 1950’s to 1990’s of Bollywood Music. This season is more lavish, with more budget and we did it at an extra ordinary galleria i.e. must art galleria in South Delhi.

I got a lots of reviews on same particularly songs as ‘Chaudvin Ka Chand’, ‘Tujhe Dekha’ and ‘Neele Neele Ambar Par’. All tunes are gems of its times, they belong to hearts of billions of people across.

I am privileged and blessed to have got the time to play them on my guitar in this fashion.

Guitar & Ghatam Season Playlist, Kapil Srivastava

Guitar & Ghatam Season Playlist, Kapil Srivastava

Friends,

I am sharing with you my full 5 tunes that I played in season # 1 ‘Guitar & Ghatam’ of gmtunetime. This video gives you all in a row. This was the start of my gmtunetime episodes and I learnt a lot so far in the process. Today I am launching my 3rd season and it seems that an era has passed since the 1st one. I know I will remember these days in future of my life as ‘golden days’ particularly when I will be old and won’t look like the way I am now in these videos.

I want to share you that all songs I make video for, I record them first at different sessions in recording studio, playing each phrase on guitar.  I do a lot of personal work to transcribe these tunes and then record them at different tracks. I then call percussionist and design the rhythm patterns and it takes a lot of time.

Guitar and Ghatam Kapil Guitarist

It would have been very easier for me to present these seasons with ready-made tracks but I always prefer to spend times on each and every track and play it manually. My philosophy of this project is to work on a particular music through guitar as lead instrument. My objective is to reflect the tone, impression and playing of guitar on different types of tunes.

Please see the dedicated website of gmtunetime, where we also helping other artists to get launched.

I look forward to hearing from you. Please subscribe at YouTube and download all seasons in google play store by gmtunetime.

Love & Regards

Kapil Srivastava

Hothon se Choo Lo Tum on Guitar

Hothon se Choo Lo Tum on Guitar

Friends,

This is my last song of the Bollywood special season of gmtunetime as “Hothon se choo lo Tum” by Ghazal Legend Jagjit Singh.

Those who are born before 1990’s know this melody well. It is from the 1980’s to end of 90’s, an era that used to be the ‘radio time’ without internet. And as such there was ample time for beautiful imaginations. This song used to come almost every day on radio and inspire us to a different level of relaxation, peace and romance.

I transcribed and played this melody solo on Guitar, improvised it with a faster tempo at the prelude and took some accidental chords and pauses at interesting points to give it a variety.

Waiting to share you my own composed season # 3 now onwards which is Indian Guitaroo. Check more of my guitar videos >>

Subscribe www.youtube.com/gmtunetime and download us at Google Play Store by name of ‘gmtunetime’

I am also sharing below the complete playlist of Bollywood Season on Guitar

Awesome Food at Pacific Mall, Anand Vihar

Awesome Food at Pacific Mall, Anand Vihar

Well this is one of the hidden malls most of Delhi residents would never prefer to visit considering its location at the outskirts of Delhi i.e. Anand Vihar. But pacific mall is worth a facility to roam around and among the best food courts than any other malls of Delhi.

You can go to the best located malls of Delhi as in Raja Garden etc. but the food court will be disappointing in most of the malls but Pacific Mall food court is an exception. I say it with full responsibility that it is comparatively among top 3 as compared to any other malls of Delhi-NCR be it Shipra Mall. I mean it when I am making this statement. This Mall may not be counted in Delhi List due to its poor location but it is one of the best taste, variety food courts you will find in Malls. If it comes to eating at a food court in a mall, I will definitely say let’s go PACIFIC MALL.

I have been eating here on and off for last 5 years now and so far I am satisfied with the taste and quality of brands. I never mind taking my family for a lunch here which I hardly do at any other malls of Delhi. One more reason is that most of food joints at this food court are stable since last many years as Fastrax, Pizza hut, Bikano besides some other good taste restaurants as Lucknow Food, China Town, Amritsari, Dosa Plaza etc.

The mall is cozy to roam even on Sunday and you won’t see it over-crowded (unless there is some event) as you see in GIP Noida or Shipra Mall etc. The best time to visit here is on Sunday as you will see lots of good crowd and activity.

You can check for more of my food experiences at different food joints

My visit to Lhasa Tibetan Restaurant Dehradun

My visit to Lhasa Tibetan Restaurant Dehradun

As you go closer towards Mussoorie through Rajpur, Sahastradhara Road, you will be amazed to see a prosperous Tibetan community, lots of monks, monasteries, libraries, universities and restaurants etc. These Tibetans are well-woven in the fabric of Uttarakhand, Dehradun in India and have further made it more colorful, spiritual and beautiful.

One of the many reasons I am proud of my country India is that my mother nation is capable to adore every culture & community. A famous ancient Hindu quote says “atithi devo bhava” which means that ‘the guest is equivalent to God” and no matter how low would politics go, love and acceptance is inherent in our roots. Tibetans are no longer refugees in India but part of it and practice their religion with freedom and pride.

I got very excited and curious to learn and feel the world of monks and stopped at one of the Tibetan Restaurant named as ‘Lhasa Restaurant’. Lhasa is the administrative capital of Tibet in China and here it is one of the best restaurants for Tibetan Food. I also wrote a lot of other restaurants at my ‘I am a foodie’ category

Here I ate lot of varieties of dishes with my mother as Kothay Momos, Veg and Cheese Momos, Singapuri Chowmein, Pan Cake with Tea. I tried one more specialized Chinese food restaurant chains in Delhi but I found a lot of variety here, which was quite good.

I will be visiting some library and a university in coming few days to explore more of Tibetan community. I took some snaps for sharing them with you. You can stop at here at Lhasa to eat something if you are ever visiting Mussoorie.

Taste Drive – A creative food joint at Rajouri Garden, New Delhi

Well this is not a real car, this is something I found when I drove down to west Delhi and discovered a new taste of various Kathi Rolls at a new food chain.

This is a brand stating itself as ‘Taste Drive’ and available in many of the adjacent malls near Rajouri Garden Metro Station also known as Raja Garden Metro Station. I went there 4-5 times and tried it every-time and thus got motivated to write and share something about it to you.

Although this is not a very extraordinary taste If I compare it to rolls by Karim’s restaurant i.e. Karim’s Roll, Nazeer’s Taka Tak, Khan Chacha’s Roll, Nizam’s Kathi Kabab or even Lacha Parantha Roll that I have in Ghaziabad and even Amritsari Rolls that I often try in Indirapuram, yet it is now one of my most favorite taste at Raja Garden. I also want to mention one other Kathi Roll that I always try whenever I go to ‘Ramkrishna Mission’ Delhi, which is much more delicious than this.

The uniqueness of Taste Drive food joint among all is due to its overall ambiance, presentation and position of creative car-shaped-Kitchen shop, which enhances the overall experience of tasting this role surrounded by colorful people and ambiance. They also have varieties of Rolls with different tastes both in veg and non-veg, which is their USP, and that too at an economical price of less than Rs. 100. They will offer you this role in a proper thick branding cup-shaped cover so as you can eat it comfortably.

One other value to experience at Taste Drive is that you will get the same happy, celebrating feeling as you often see in McDonalds, with many young kids, families buying and eating along. The best experience is to taste it at eve and you will be accompanied by lots of good crowd. You will find people sitting on pavement, floor or walking casually and enjoying this food. And I find it a very lively and healthier experience as it creates a state of mind, a psychology that helps to enhance your experience at this food-joint. Lastly they are all located inside the malls at a good pollution free location, less dust prone and thus more hygienic.

If you ever feel to go there and try it, you can find this Taste Drive Car-shaped food joint at TDI Mall, Westend Mall and City Square Mall near metro station.
