one of the reasons why i think kunal is a genius

Bombay Chaupati from Kunal Sen on Vimeo.

an impeccably subtle, joyous, touching and perfectly made video by kunal. and if this seems like a little sneaky publicity for a friend, it probably is.

i was always slightly in awe of kunals work, even when he was just a student in bangalore. from little fun mismatched flash video birthday gifts, to stop motion fun and more serious grad projects, i think iv seen pretty much a lot of his work. and while he has probably progressively grown and matured as an artist, the sense of awe and inspiration that i feel has always remained the same. this video gave me goosebumps the first time i saw it. funny thing is, it did the second time too. and the third and the fourth. you get the drift.

but the larger issue is that it brought a sudden burst of nostalgia. when i just saw this again, memories associated with the song came gushing back into the rivulets of my mind. memories of a different time. when music and singing was an everyday practice. when it was more than a hobby or a way to pass time. when it was about being young, enthusiastic and raring to go.

nothing will ever be the same again. and all that remains is a treasury of memories and good times. happy times. musical times.
