Ritviz Trained in Hindustani classical music, Ritviz Srivastava is a YouTube sensation with his songs becoming instant hits ever since he first found fame with his track Udd Gaye, a unique fusion of Indian and electronica that turned into a party anthem for the millennial generation. Since then, Ritviz has proved he’s no one-hit wonder with popular songs like ‘Barso’, ‘Jeet’, ‘Sage’ and ‘Liggi’ among others. Relax and enjoy the chilled-out hits from Ritviz at Tech2 Innovate this weekend. Indian Ocean You can call them a protest band if you like but the deep, earthy voices and raga-meets-rock songs by Indian Ocean revolutionized the genre and gave audiences a worthy alternative to Bollywood and Western rock bands. Through changing group members to appearing sporadically in Bollywood, mainly in Anurag Kashyap movies, the band is one of the most well-known names in the alternative rock space today. Hear them once and be their fan forever.

Presenting the fourth video from my 'Unplugged on Sundays' series on youtube — 'BHAANTI BHAANTI KI CHIDIYA' - - One Day a little bird thought that she would like to improve her lot. Perhaps she could learn a lesson or two from the great big humans around her. When the bird met the human being, he advised her thus, " the first lesson to learn is that of discrimination, other virtues would follow. One must always think of one's self to be superior to all others." The next day when the little bird sat looking for something to eat, a crow flew down and sat next to her. The bird looked down in scorn and said, "you are so dark and still you have the audacity to sit next to me! I am a bird of a much higher class so I will not sit with you. I will find a companion from a high class like mine -- it is with him that I will fly and with him that I shall sit." The crow did not return for several days and the little bird missed him -- she was sad and said to herself, "why did I allow myself to be led astray by the human being ? There is nothing that I can learn from him. I am the one who needs to teach him a lesson -- if birds of different kinds can sit together so happily and look for their food, why can't human beings live in harmony ?" The lesson to learn is that pride is insignificant as every human being is reduced to dust in the end which merges with the wind that blows it away. - - ‘Bhaanti Bhaanti Ki Chidiya’ has been written by Polly Saghera -- a superbly talented lyricist and composer who also happens to be my mother. This melody has been co-composed by Polly and myself and we have concluded our song with a couplet by the great Philosopher Saint Kabir. - We are so pleased to share this unplugged version with you all on my youtube channel today - If you have any suggestions about which songs you would like me to sing unplugged versions of for you, you can send them to me here. - I do hope I will be able to add my bit to your Sundays through my music. God bless you all always. - You can subscribe to my YouTube channel at : https://www.youtube.com/jasleenaulakh A post shared by Jasleen Aulakh (Just Ittefaaq) (@jasleenaulakhofficial) on
