And now, some devotional music!

Emboldened by the kind reception given to him by hordes of listeners, hordes here being defined as any number larger than 7, Panditji felt moved to sing the devotional songs he learnt in his extensive travels across the country.

The first one, "Bhole Bhole" was picked up in North India, somewhere in the hills. While Panditji realises that his musical abilities may not do justice to the composition, he feels sure that the intensity of the lyrics will carry the poets true meaning to the listener's soul.

The second composition, "Jhoot Bole" is by an old college friend of Panditji who theorized that even common film songs can become sublime if rendered with feeling. Sadly, Panditji's emotions overflowed towards the end of that rendition which might, in the eyes of the purist, detract from sheer musical merit of the composition. The listener is requested to condone this lapse.

If Panditji has really picked up the first one in the hills of North India like you say, it must be from a loudspeaker playing Narendra Chanchal who's belting out this sort of stuff all the time. I hear that's the mainstay of T-series music these days.

Jhooth Bole again reminds one of the college days of creative music when songs and tunes were interchanged for the sake of experimentation. It was theorized at the time that any song can be successfully set to the tune of Mana Ho Tum Behad Haseen by Jesudas.

Just had to get it off my chest. That Bhole Bhole song has been haunting me. Picture this. I'm sitting with the missus on the window sill. Gentle breeze, smell of parijataka flowers, kooking of koyal, old mister moon playing hide and seek in the clouds and what do I feel like singing? Bhole Bhole!
