Ranbir: Why?

P.S.: Dedication is obvious, and not explicitly needed!

Lemons, Lemonade, or ... Aviation?

Posted by Nerdyy

Life has a way of handing us lemons - sometimes very bitter and very tart ones! And we humans have a way of holding onto those memories that bring us back to these lemons. The old saying of course is make lemonade but that is so blase (yes there should be an accent aigu there, but I have no idea how to do it).

So, take the lemon, squeeze out some lemon juice, mix up some gin, creme de violette and maraschino cherry liqueur, add a cherry and a lemon peel to garnish and VOILA you have a stunningly beautiful creation aka Aviation! Enjoy it while soaking up the Summer sunshine :D


2 oz Gin
1/4 oz Maraschino Liqueur
1/2 oz fresh Lemon Juice
1/4 oz Creme de Violette
Cherry (optional)
Lemon Peel Garnish

And what a stunningly beautiful color it is!


Pareshaan Raat Saari Hai

Posted by Nerdyy

This is dedicated to all those long nights (and we know them very well) when sleep insists that she wants to remain a stranger. Here's to Le Doloure Exquise - the exquisite pain.

pareshaan raat saari hai sitaron tum to so jao
sukoot-e-marg tari hai sitaron tum to so jao

(sukoot = silence, marg = death, tari = happening/prevailing)

humen bhi neend aajayegi hum bhi so hi jayenge
abhi kuch bekarari baaki hai sitaron tum to so jao

There is also a Chitra Singh version that is equally good ...

tumhen kya aaj bhi koi agar milne nehin aaya
yeh baazi hum ne haari hai sitaron tum to so jao.

(To all of us that lost our baazis at some point of time, be it 24 years ago or a time more recent or any other time, here's to us :D)
