The Hyderabad Playlist – A song story
It is human nature to dwell in the past, worry about the future and forget all about the present. I still miss the days spent in Hyderabad. I miss the study schedules, eating out, street shopping, and the city tours. I miss the roads, the townships and the metros. But I clearly remember that I just wanted the days to pass quickly so that I could return home, while I was there. And today I miss the view from the terrace of the ladies hostel we stayed in, the floral decorations with chalk, colors and flowers, the flower market, the abundance of curd during lunch hours, the constant ‘amma’ recitals by our wardens and so much more.

I connect songs to memories and places. So whenever I listen to these songs again at present, I am reminded of those days of last year. Like when I hear songs from 'Dil Dhadakne Do' or 'Hamari Adhuri Kahani' or 'ABCD-2' I am reminded of the Mysore days, every single time.
Have any song story to share? Do you remember people or places when you listen to particular songs? What are your favorites among them? I'd like to know.
