>My experience of…Euphoria!

>I guess I must be 12-13 yrs old when I heard Dhoom first.(that also in TV promo…!)And those lines got into my head for many days..!(…its quite imp…coz u know nothing gets into ma head so easily…ask ma teachers! ;))I kept on asking in my friend circle,”hey,do u know that guy?”,”hav u heard him?”,”Do u hav the album?”,”Who are these ppl!??”…But never got answer…May be I was not meant to be get into Euphoria at so little age.

Then I saw Mai Ree(Tnx to MTV!…)Again the same thing,the tune stuck into my head…But this time there was one more thing,the voice seemed to be familiar to me…And my cousin told me..”Abe mahiti aahe ka?,ha doctor aahe,Dr.Palash Sen!….te gaane aathavate kaya?’aare meri dhadkan aare..’,hyaachech te.”This was the first time i got introduced to Euphoria..And I became a fan..not of Euphoria,but of mai ree.For the unconventional tune,for its touchy lyrics,the indian(rajsthani would be better)touch!was jus in luv the song.And I still think that its the best one by the boys.

Now …I was jus waiting for Euphoria’s next album…and it was there…Mantra!But I was very dissapointed this time,there was jus one song in that album.It was a solo release,with one additional instrumental.So we guys jus recorded those songs from a music store and heard ’em enumorous times…GOD!mantra was truly a great song.u can’t stop ur feet from tapping.

…I was in 12th std when I first bought ne Euphoria’s album.I still remember,my mom was not allowing me to buy ne music album that year.No songs.nothin…jus study!(Damn…And I am still studying [;)]!)She agreed only when I promised not to waste my time on listening songs…as I do it usually(she thinks this way…!)So I bought gully.This album made me their die hard fan.Initially I liked the title track ‘Gully‘ which was really inviting one…then there was ‘Raja Rani‘,whose tune I didn’t got in first listening,but still I liked it(boys did again very much well with the rajasthani folk…it reminded me of mai ree!)…then the journey continued from one song to another,moving thro’ different moods.’Meethi chashani‘ was a complete chartbuster…full of energy.(the best part I luv of this one is when the song is picked up with…baahein resham,subhah roshan,har baat shayaree…tuhi mann ka pahela armaan,tuhi dil ki chaah aankhari…)’Kya yeh sach hai?’…another great song by Euphoria!This song actually made me to think that should a promise have a limit?…does dreams belong to specific category?…can’t happiness be there till eternity?…is it necessary sorrow should always make you regret?…And the song itself answers these questions in the end…Great work by boys again.the mantra album was also added in the list.’Aisa ek jahaan‘…really a cheerful,enthu song…takes you to a dreamland.The flute used at the starting jus adds more colors to the party.’OO Piyu‘ is really a nice work…i wonder why these guys haven’t released an English album yet.They do hav the potential.I was really surprised to know that there so many things which are so related to eachother that they can’t separated out,when I heard ‘Kuch Nahin‘.Great lyrics…!!And if you are in love or having crush on sumone…you gotta listen this one.This also starts the sad ones from the album…Next comes ‘Waise hi..‘ a qawalli with again a border of sorrow…the guy still shows some positive shades by accepting the fact that the gal has left him…but u get really shocked when he says..

Mujhe maloom hai k tum mujhe na poochogi..

Ke main kaisa hoon…

Kya main khush hoon…?

Ya nahin hoon…?

Kyon main hairaan hoon…?

Kya main khush hoon…?

Ya nahin hoon…?

Ya sahi hoon..?

Ya nahin hoon…?

Tere maathe ka noor hoon…?

Ya main tujhse bhi door hoon…?

Kya main jeeta..? Kya main hara…?

Bana kya tera sahara…?

Main wahi hoon…?

Ya nahin hoon…?

Kya abhi tak main tera hoon…?….

….Phir bhi sirf tumhe bataneko jee chahata hain…

….Ke filhaal main…….jeenda hoon….!”

And Palaash makes the height of sadness with ‘Sone de maa…‘…GOD the song really takes out all the pain u have in mind..!Then comes a prayer…really soothing,delightful prayer(can’t call it as song!)…with simple yet meaningful lyrics.I remember i use to listen it hundreds of times in the morning.And I still do that!..but the songs which really makes u crazy is ‘Ab naa ja…’.Can’t describe the magic in words…jus think of ur love at night and start playing the song and witness the magic.The magic of Euphoria!
