This song also has to be among the very best for both composer Salil Chowdhury and singer Mukesh. Yogesh's lines become even more meaningful when it is placed in the context of Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s poignant film about terminally ill man and his doctor – roles which Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan both excelled in. … [Read more...] about The best of lyricist Yogesh: A musical tribute

The times have changed and the future looks bleak, thanks to an unexpected virus that suddenly upturned the world. Coronavirus has changed the way we look at things and as we struggle to move forward, we are changing our old habits. Most of us have not ordered from our favourite restaurant in days, not visited the gym and not caught up with a friend for coffee.
