“How sweet the moonlight sleeps upon this bank.
Here will we sit, and let the sounds of music
Creep in our ears; soft stillness, and the night
Become the touches of sweet harmony.” - William Shakespeare

A relaxing day today, just as I had hoped it would be. And just to finish the day off gently and sweetly, here is a beautiful Hindi song from the film Eklayva. It is called Chanda Re (“The Moon Song”) and sung wonderfully by Hamsika Iyer.


  1. A sweet, enchanting songstress, accompanied so perfectly on harp, Arabic drum and bells. Pure loveliness.

  2. omg...i've always always always adore this song....ah but am a sucker for artsy fartsy bollywood stuff....

    but my fav. are two-
    # old umraao jaan- zindagi jab bhi teri bazm mein laati hai humein
    # an album called chandani ratein

    ps. am sorry...was out for a week...

  3. What a beautiful song! Thanks for posting....
