Jab tak hai jaan songs review(after one time listen).

This album was pretty tough for Rahman for two reasons. One, to scale upto the magnitude he had set in ROCKSTAR, and two, to compensate SRKs bad acting on screen (some others would tell this is a plus, but not me).

Starting with 'Challa', the song reportedly making waves on internet is just an OK song for me. It sports a new singer Rabbi, but does no justice to his capability. Also this is the video where SRK jumps around like a monkey with a guitar, which puts me off. Again to scale upto the magnitude of ROCKSTAR set by Ranbir is difficult.

 Followed by 'Saans' which started off sweet because its Shreya Goshal. But then dont know what got into Rahman. There was dholaks, violins, flutes, drums, and what not. I was so confused by the instrumentation. And then in between the song went totally out of the path straying somewhere. The song slightly reminded me of a better song in ADA. This could have been a good song if the instrumentation was better.

Storm of Swords review

A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book has been one of the easiest reads in recent times. Fast, fiery and twist at each chapter end. The book keeps you hooked on to it from the very first page. Continuing from the epic war on the Blackwater bay, the characters are restless and are plotting against one another. There are promises to keep and ruins to be shared. The characters become stronger and cleverer.
The pace of the book is even throughout the book and there is no page where the pace drops.
Of the other books, this one has the least attractive cover page and it does not do any justice to the content inside.
