My favourite songs are connected to some of my favourite memories. Right now I am in love with the Qawalli from Mah-e-Mir called Jag Musaffir by Fareed Ayaz and Abu Mohammed. Another song I love is “Hello” by Lionel Richie my father once played it on repeat on a road trip to Abbotabad when I was a child. I also love Sajjad Ali’s Tum Naraz Ho because his voice is like a dream and the words are beautiful.
The Story of Philosophy by Brian Magee, that’s a book that I keep going back to and always take something more from it. It helps get through everyday situations.
