    Never thought I would see someone mention Lifafa on here :p Also here's a live performance by them. Have you checked their other project, Peter Cat Recording Co.?

    This is definitely exciting. Apart from all the meta discussion and documentation that might be written, I am more excited about it's use for groups like ~music (and I think @Amarok had somewhat similar plans for it).
    Anyways I would also like to get involved :)

    Some other songs from them -
    Mindstreet - probably their most popular song

    Maktub

    Fields of Sound

    Chasing the Sun

    Unfortunately most of the original lineup has left, including the lead vocalist(Suraj Mani) and guitarist(Baiju Dharmajan). And the current stuff isn't as good.

    Funnily enough, I don't think I know anyone who does that (myself included). Infact I heard it first on reddit :p But yeah, some people definitely do it.

    Unrelated but there are many amazing Coke Studio performances that I would like to share but I don't want to spam :p
    But just putting up as a list also doesn't do justice to the music. Thoughts?

    Recommend me a book similar to "A Thousand Splendid Suns" by Khaled Hosseini. I really liked the way he described things, emotions and relations between the characters. It's a beautiful story.

    Indian ocean is an Indian rock band combining folk songs with rock elements.

    Kandisa refers to (and uses the text from) the East Syriac chant Qadisha Alaha which is part of the Syro-Malabarese Syriac mass. Traditionally it sounds something like this.

    Some of my favourite songs by them -
    Khajuraho

    Torrent (instrumental)

    Melancholic Ecstacy (instrumental)

    Tandanu

    Leaving Home

    Bhor

    Piku - Trailer IMDB

    Peepli Live - Trailer IMDB

    Masaan - Trailer IMDB

    Gulaal

    Tummbad - Trailer IMDB

    The Lunchbox - Trailer IMDB

    Udaan - Trailer IMDB

    Gangs of Wasseypur - Perhaps my favourite bollywood movie. It's a gangster movie spanning three generations.

    There are more but I don't watch bollywood movies regularly and these are the only ones I remember.

    Lagi bina/Chal Mele nu Chaliye.

    I listen to lots of different songs in various languages but something about the Punjabi language feels very beautiful to me (also because it's my mother tongue :P)
