A life centered on love

Life centered on love
This image teaches a lot, reflecting various phases of life, a life thoroughly centered on emotion of love.

The tree at the backdrop merely surviving and dying but human is filled with companionship of childhood to love and affection of youth, passing through the 3rd phase of intimacy of relationship and bonding of adults to old-age companion once again.

The 5th phase is of pain of separation of lost companion and being alone in an un-imagined life. Sitting yet standing on the crutches of love and affection of thy memories.

The withered tree depicts the end of life having witnessed the imprints of beautiful moments lost in nature.

It teaches the choices we have of living this life either being centered on love and all rest things on circumference or a life centered on status, money and fame and love on circumference?

Tujhe Dekha to Ye – My Guitar tribute to Bollywood movie DDLJ

Friends,

Here is my second last song of Season # 2 of gmtunetime, Tujhe Dekha to Ye – my guitar tribute to Bollywood most popular and longest ever movie DDLJ, Dilwale Dulhania le Jayenge

The movie has recently completed its 1000 weeks at Maratha Mandir Cinema Hall in South Mumbai, India. The movie got released in the October month of year 1995 and so far one of the longest movies ever of Bollywood with main lead actors as Shahrukh Khan, Kajol, Amrish Puri, Anupam Kher etc.

Coming to its music part, it has both blend of west and foundation of Indian folk flavor. The songs of movies got very popular even before the movie is released, composed by music director Jatin Lalit. I chose the most popular song of this movie ‘Tujhe Dekha to Ye Jana Sanam’, which is a true blend of Indian Folk and Keherva rhythm merged with various riffs and chords transitions in between. It is a study for many guitar students.

Better Guitar Better Player Myth – Music with Homemade Broom Guitar and Shovel Bass

Street Musicians from Vienna performs excellent piece with Homemade Broom Guitar and Shovel Bass

Well, this is a video that would teach all music students that it is the energy and passion that works behind the good music performance and not expensive guitars and instruments. I have always told my students that foremost thing is to run your hands first rather buying an expensive guitars. Ignore this expense for time being. I have also seen a fact that most of them who bought expensive guitars failed. They couldn’t focus on what was needed first. Many retailers come to me and offer me 10% to 20% straight commission if I recommend their particular branded guitars to our student. They cost around 25k to 50k package but that is not ethical. I rather advise them to keep this money as an investment for your persistent education in music for next 1-2 year and so on and only focus on your skill development. Better Guitar Better Player is not only a myth but sometimes a distraction too.

I have seen players in my life that have given me goose-bumps through a broken instrument and played awesome rhythms on wall and tables. We have performed many songs this way and they are the ones you can jam with for hours. It is eventually the ability to play the instrument and knowing music that matters most and should be kept as the main focus and the foremost priority by every student.

Tunday Kababi at Windsor Market, Indirapuram Ghaziabad

Friends,

As I am foodie, I got a specialty food joint in Delhi where-in you can enjoy a unique dish known as Tunday Kababi. So far I am very happy with its taste at this food joint, which is Windsor Street Market in Indirapuram, Ghaziabad. It is just few meters ahead of road of Aditya Mega Mall facing Rajhans Plaza Complex.

This Windsor Market is famous for various kabab’s food joints and you will see hundreds of people eating there at the same time in open every other evening. It is surrounded by residential apartments and good density of population, near to Shipra Mall. I was amazed to find that this market specialty is Tunday Kababi whereas you will not find this dish so often in all other big markets of Delhi-NCR. Here are few mobile clicks of my visit to Windsor market in Indirapuram, Ghaziabad

This dish is said to be part of Awadhi cuisine (techniques of Mughalai food) and said to incorporate 160 spices Ingredients and the basic ones are melted ghee, onions, sugar, onion, crushed garlic, cardamom, clovers, yogurt, vinegar, lime, meat and various other masalas etc.  It is a unique dish and flavour made out of minced meat, which basically got popular in Lucknow city of Uttar Pradesh as there is a 100 years old restaurant of Tunday Kabab in Chowk.

If you ever get chance to eat this, you can try it and you will enjoy a new fragrance and flavor in it.

Chura Liya hain tumne Guitar Performance

Hi Friends,

Here I am sharing you my 3rd video of GM Tune Time Season # 2 as Chura Liya on Guitar. It’s one of the oldest and most famous melodies of early 70’s music by Late R.D. Burman from Bollywood movie Yaadon ki Baaraat.

I grew listening to these songs and always wanted to express them in a new fashion and style and as solo guitar.

I re-arranged the whole song adding arpeggios in beginning with many accidental notes that are not part of the original melody. Augmented notes with faster bass riffs, and double speed rhythm shuffles and use of Keyboard for special effects at specific phrases. I wish you enjoy this new version of Chura Liya hain tumne Guitar Performance and share me your comments.

You can subscribe channel www.youtube.com/gmtunetime for more of new music and videos. I am uploading here lots of new music every now and then.

Love and Regards

My visit to KINGDOM OF DREAMS: A Cultural and Food Hub in Gurgaon

There is another Kingdom in Gurgaon in NCR, Delhi called the “Kingdom of Dreams”. It is considered to be India’s first live entertainment, theatre and leisure destination sprawled across 6 acres of land with castle-type structures that houses two auditoriums, the Nautanki Mahal and the Showshaa theatre as well as the Culture Gully, which is a cultural and cuisine area.

The Great Indian Nautanki Company, which is jointly owned by Wizcraft International Entertainment and Apra Group  are the brains behind This lavish and surreal project .

The Nautanki Mahal is an extravagant, 835-seat auditorium that stages both Indian and international theatrical productions. Zangoora -The Gypsy Prince was the first live and original Bollywood musical performed there. It boasts of state-of-the art production equipments that makes the theater experience look and sound more magical.

Kingdom of dreams: a cultural and food hub that brings to life and harmonises the distinct features of the 14 states of India, not only in aesthetic concept but in gastronomic surprises as well. The Culture Gully is a boulevard with state pavilions that showcases the food, arts and crafts and architecture of each state represented.  street performances, artisans, massage centers, mystic shops and lounge bars – Kerela and Mehkhana Bar- are also found in the Culture Gully. The 500 Rs entry fee for each person comes with a card system, wherein you have to consume that 500 Rs worth for food so the entrance fee can be waived for free. But it does carry forward to your next visit the remaining amount if you are not able to consume the entire amount at your first visit. Nevertheless, my stay at the Kingdom of Dreams surely made my senses all awake and excited from the visuals and music apart from the delectable offerings that are a definite must-try! I lost track of time and became too absorbed with the festival-like atmosphere and presence of entertainment characters in the area.

As a colourful marquee spans over the 350-seater amphitheatre, the Showshaa Theater has phenomenal productions highlighting the Indian mythology, impressive circus skills and they even stage a mock lavish wedding show! The costumes and props look so grand and the actors and actresses’ performance are indeed astounding.

Behold the spectacle that awaits you when you visit the Kingdom of Dreams. This is truly one culture and leisure place that we can’t afford to miss! This is actually a great place to treat family and friends and it’s like being all over India in a day. I’m truly glad that I checked this place out myself as it left me in a state of enchantment. Better see this place yourself and hopefully it won’t leave you too speechless.
