what is the best way to remember stuff?

I posed this question to Divya, the great -- you will soon find out why!

Divya: OK what skills do you have?

me: photography
a little writing
my editing skills are good

Divya: exactly
get hold of your book
edit it
and write it
in your own words
and if you like photography - and you have a photographic memory
just stare at a page
for 1-2 minutes
you'll know what is in there
that works for me
i mean i cant explain it
its like
i can look at something
and i have that picture
in my head
so even in the exam hall if i cant remember
what was there
its like i can visualise that paper in front of me
n see what is written
my skills lie in gossiping
spreading/sharing stuff
so whatever i read or study
if i tell it to someone
any person
i NEVER EVER forget it
which is why i actually agree to teach
more out of selfishness than for doing them any good

me: you should patent this idea
it will work for everyone

Divya: lol

me: the diagramming thing works for me
i have been doing it since 6th std
i draw everything in a flow chart/diagram/table - it's a form of editing


Simply put your strongest skills to work -- works with almost any problem.

Dev.D lyrics

I was introduced to Dev.D when I saw its promo on MTV that had the Emosional Atyachaar song. The lyrics, the music, the video -- I had never seen anything like it before and it totally blew me away.

Later I found out that the movie was from Anurag Kashyap. I had loved his work as a scriptwriter (Satya, Yuva, Honeymoon Travels) and Black Friday was brilliant (even No Smoking was a path breaking idea, though incomprehensible) so Dev.D was on my watchlist.
I expected the music to be good but 18 songs was too much and I liked most of the songs the first time I heard them. The remaining grew on to me later -- so much so that if I were to compile a list of my favorite Bollywood OSTs, I am sure that this would be in the top 3.

These songs had come out more than a year back and they are all still on my regular playlist. I have noticed a trend with music, you first like the tune of a song then start to dive into the lyrics. Things could go either way after this, either the lyrics turn out to be pretty ordinary or they touch a chord and lift your liking to the next level. And this is what happened with me and Dev.D.

Strangely, I could not find the lyrics for all Dev.D songs at one place. The lyric sites I knew only had about half the songs and the less common ones were on never-heard-before sites and blogs.
If I was searching for it, so would others so here is my little tribute to the genius of Amit Trivedi. All Dev.D lyrics in one place.
Have fun everyone!

Emotional Atyachaar Lyrics (Brass Band version)

yeh dil pighla ke saaz bana loon
dhadkan ko awaaz bana loon
smoking smoking nikle re dhuan

seene mein jalti hai armanon ki arthi
arrey what to tell you darling kya hua
arrey sapne dekhe jannat ke
par mitti mein mil jaye
phookein re ghar baar ki duniya
ko bole good bye

chad jaye haye allah
jisko bhi yeh bukhaar
tauba tera jalwa tauba tera pyar
tera emotional atyachaar
tauba tera jalwa tauba tera pyar
tera emotional atyachaar

jao jao oh dilbar
oh dilbar ohh
tauba tera jalwa tauba tera pyar
tera emotional atyachaar

ho gayi dil ke paar tragedy tragedy
lut gai re bahaar gul sukh sukh murjhaye
ho gayi dil ke paar tragedy tragedy
lut gaiy re bahaar gul sukh sukh murjhaye

bol bol why did you ditch me
zindagi bhi lele yaar kill me
bol bol why did you ditch me wh#re
bol bol why did you ditch me
zindagi bhi lele yaar kill me
jao piya jao piya jao piya

tauba tera jalwa tauba tera pyar
tera emotional atyachaar
tauba tera jalwa tauba tera pyar
tera emotional atyachaar

jao jao oh dilbar
oh dilbar ohh
tauba tera jalwa tauba tera pyar

Pardesi Lyrics

o pardesi o pardesi
mitha sa chada hai bukhaar
he re main thara pardesi

o pardesi o pardesi
ramji karo beda paar
he re main thara pardesi

waqt ne kar dala banta dhar
ib ke hove gaal akae yaar (mistakenly heard by Anurag Kashyap as Atyachaar)

mann bawri bawri buzhsa lage
kabhi ith ku dole
kabhi uth zhoke

o pardesi, o pardesi
naino mein sapne hajaar
he re mai thara pardesi

lage mitha mitha chadhe-a bukhar
ishq mushq na chupe bawari yaar

dil ki taqhti pe naam likha tera gehra
katil aankhon pe zulf ka saje hai lehra

hua pardesi hua pardesi
mitha sa chadha hai bukhar
he re mai thahra pardesi

o pardesi o pardesi
ramji karo beda paar
he re mai thara pardesi


Saali Khushi Lyrics

jalte jalte rakh hui hai saari
khak jaisi bewajah ji umar saari
kahan chali gayi hai saali khushi
kahan chali gayi hai saali khushi

jalti aanhein hai saans bhi
jali hui jali hui
dhoondu kaise hai aas bhi
jali hui jali hui

saanp jaisi kali raatein hai
hai yeh zehar si yeh zindagi

kahan chali gayi hai saali khushi
kahan chali gayi hai saali khushi

kahan chali gayi hai saali khushi

Yahi Meri Zindagi Lyrics

utra utra mausam dhalke phalkon mein

Ek Hulchul Si Lyrics

dhadkan maheen dil mein jagati
ek hulchul si (ek hulchul si)
kohra hata ke sooraj jalati
ek hulchul si (ek hulchul si)

ek hulchul si

zinda hai ek hulchul si

hadh nazar ki

sach hai sach hai sach hai

jeene ki ek talab phir jagaye
ek hulchul si (ek hulchul si)
bujhti si saanson ko kash banaye
ek hulchul si (ek hulchul si)

ek hulchul si
ek hulchul si
ek hulchul si (ek hulchul si)
ek hulchul si
ek hulchul si
zinda hai ek hulchul si

mehsoos kar le
ya dil ye pal
saanson se choo le
lamha ye bekal
bekal bekal bekal

o-ho ho ho ho ho
o-ho ho ho ho ho

macha le, jala le, dil mein

o-ho ho ho ho ho
o-ho ho ho ho ho
o-ho ho ho ho ho
a-ha ha ha ha ha
o-ho ho ho ho ho

hadh nazar ki
jahan talak hai

Dil Mein Jaagi Lyrics

dil mein jaagi armaan aise
kho jaun khwaabon mein
neela ambar halke baadal
bhar loon main aanchal mein

saanson mein sargam gaaye
haule haule kuch keh jaaye
dhuan dhuan hai ye sama
lagta hai saara jahaan hai mera hai mera

(ho ho ho ho)

bhanwra phool phool mandraye
geet koi gaata jaaye
kabhi yahan kabhi wahan
rangon mein kho jaaye saman
pheeka pheeka hai ye aasman

ha haano main hoon dhoop mein naha ke
khushi ka geet gungunau
khilkhilati hui ye hawaayein chalein
baharon ko choomti huyi ja rahi

dil mein jaagi armaan aise
kho jau khwaabon mein
neela ambar halke baadal
bhar loon main aanchal mein

saanson mein sargam gaaye
haule haule kuchh keh jaaye
dhuan dhuan hai ye sama
lagta hai sara jahaan hai mera hai mera

Emotional Attyachar Lyrics (Rock Version)

bharpa jo ek shor hai
pukhta hai purzorr hai
agg rag jalte iske sarmaye

kal mera bebaak tha
aaj magar kamzor hai
khud se aankhein hi na mil payein

aankhon ke aage jo hai
manzar lava barsaye
jalta hai dil jalta hai
til til main jalta hoon

is lamhe ki haqeeqat
gawara na kar paaye
jalta hai dil
til til main jalta hoon

hat ja re hat jaa re
pare hat ja re nazron se
pare hat ja re hat jaa re
arrey jaa re

hat ja re hat jaa re
pare hat ja re nazron se
pare hat ja re hat jaa re
arrey jaa re

mere labz ke haar jaise
hain yaadon mein chubte jaise
aansoon mere behte rehte
khoon ke khoon ke
khoon ke khoon ke
khoon ke khoon ke

aankhon ka hai dhokha
aisa tera pyaar
tera emotional atyachaar

aankhon ka hai dhokha
aisa tera pyaar
tera emotional atyachaar (Repeat - 7)
you b#tch


Ranjhana Lyrics

na raha mera yaar
tune sang tune ang naa lagayi
birha ki agni mein chokhi jalayi
hadh se behadh hadh kardi
na chaali dil ki marzi
chhaliya ve jaa jaa
vaat dekhi teri barson maine ho-ho-oh
gaaj tune gira di dil pe more ho-ho-oh
bedardi samjha na tu more sak ko ho-ho-oh
tujh bin din raat ke saaye
tujh bin kuch bhaaye na haye

(dhola dhola re)
