All good things come in pairs, don’t they? Like chai and vadapav, movie theater and popcorn, Tom & Jerry and even Netflix & Chill. The changing seasons of India also come in great combinations, the summers are all about travels and the winters are dedicated to hibernating but it is an undeniable fact that monsoon and music make the best combination.
Be it the cloudy filter on the weather, the thunder and lightning mode of the purple skies or the raindrops that make you want to get into your most comfy pair of pyjamas and chill indoors with a cup of chai/coffee and bhajiyaas with soothing monsoon songs. Or if you’re the adventurous kind you’re probably out there on long drives exploring ghats and waterfalls.
Well, Bollywood knows just how to please our music-loving hearts with its romantic, soothing and downright ‘dance your heart out’ kind of songs! So, here’s a playlist that’s sure to get you in the right mood for the season and what better day to share this than #WorldMusicDay?!
