Story of Baarish in Lifewalla
Shama and the 515 crew released 'Baarish' in 2012. During the writing and editing of Lifewalla, the song played often in the background.
The lyrics of loss and undying, unconditional love were so touching, and the melody so moving, often the editing would seem to wait for the song. There was an uncocnsious couplling.
Soon, the lyrics started to relate to Dilkhush's own feelings for her lost daughter. With permission in 2014/15, some of the lyrics made their way into the book.
Around the October 2015 release of Lifewalla, Shama and the 515 crew pledged to donate 50% of the net proceeds of 'Baarish' sales in the upcoming year. It can be downloaded from itunes and other good music stores. Please support the cause and their generosity.

Aur bus , bheege ye pal saare…"
