2023 - Annual Round up (Hindi)

As far as music is concerned, I personally felt 2023 was a pretty solid year. The remake song trend was much less compared to previous years. I initially decided to select around 30 odd songs for this list. However I ended up with 50 songs. This list also consists of some beautiful songs which hardly anyone heard, owing to various reasons like the film's poor marketing and failure, etc. The aim of this post is to celebrate the best music of 2023, and to also make people aware of the unheard / underrated music of 2023.   ARTIST OF THE YEAR The usual stalwarts like Arijit Singh and Pritam took a backseat for me as one of the OG's re-emerged in 2023. I am talking about SONU NIGAM. This was his year. The sad part is he sang so many beautiful songs which went totally unnoticed. I have included many of them in this list too.  LINK TO THE SPOTIFY PLAYLIST - CLICK HERE   1.                      Nikle The Kabhi Hum Ghar Se (Dunki) (Sonu Nigam, Javed Akhtar, Pritam)   N

It has been a while since I read a Ravi Subramanian novel. I have been a fan of his work since his first novel. His writing style, his characterisations, the tension he builds up – everything is top notch. And so when Ravi decides to "present" an author, it was something I was looking forward to. "Body of Work" is written by Mansi Babbar and presented by Ravi Subramanian. With a length of only 166 pages, this one was a quick read.

The story revolves basically around two characters – a journalist named Raina and a superstar actress named Hera. While the entire world raves about Hera, her acting, her stardom and her generous contribution to the film world, Raina thinks otherwise. She thinks Hera is not at all what she presents to the entire world. Infact, she thinks she is more twisted than what others ass


  I have always liked reading novels and watching movies based on wars, especially the second world war. As a child, I remember being fascinated by Readers Digest when they had an entire collection published about secret stories of the second world war. As I grew up, I realized that I missed these war stories. Debutante writer Prateek Singh chooses to focus on the recent war, an area that has been relatively less explored as far as novels have been concerned. And so, it was only delightful and commendable to see the amount of efforts he has put in to write this novel. PLOT The plot revolves less around individual characters, but more around how the US – Iraq war affects people physically and mentally. And so we have a character who fights with his inner demons because he knows he has killed innocent people in a moment of anger. Then there is another character who is being hunted by terrorist as well as secret agencies of the world because of classified information she supposedl
