If you haven’t already seen the Happy song by Pharell Williams, you must. I know many have already, but I feel its important that this song reaches everyone on the planet today!
‘Happy’ by Pharrell Williams, is contagious, it is vibrant, brilliant, simple yet profound and it is everything and more than ‘Happy’. ‘Because I’m happy, clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth’ sings Pharrell in an exuberant and obviously happy tone. He instantly touches the happy chord in a happiness starved soul.
The song which surfaced to all popularity charts in November last year, features in the movie Despicable me 2. The song instantly touched chords and soon there were a series of Happy songs being made all over the world. YouTube is filled with over a 1000 cover videos, in which people from all over the world danced in utter joy and oblivion. People upload their own versions of the songs and call it “Pharrell Williams–Happy, We Are from [name of the city]”.
Why is this song so important as of today?
In a world filled with apathy, grief, depression and loneliness, Pharrell Williams comes as a breeze of freshness, he fills you with hope, with delight, and with the obvious word which is repeated so many times in the song, “Happy”. Every Guru, every transformational book, every motivation speech says this but Pharrell totally gets us.
Without writing much and deeply philosophizing over the song, I want to share this song with all women, who I hope will promise me, that they will play this loud in their living rooms or on their phones when they go jogging or wherever and have a blast and really be happy.
Here is the song.
And the lyrics of the Happy song!

My house-help asked excitedly, “I am going for wedding. Can you let me wear your red & black saree? To be honest I was stumped for a moment; I didn’t know what to say but I still said yes.
I lent a gorgeous saree to my house-help for a wedding in her family. Soon I stated getting questions if I would wear that saree again or if I was okay to be seen wearing the same saree my house-help was wearing?
We are all so conditioned to give our used clothes to our house-helps but are we okay to wear the clothes they were wearing?
A few days ago she came excitedly to me, “I am going for a family wedding. I want to wear your red & black saree, Ill wash and give it to you after the function. Please can you let me wear it?”
Sivaranjiniyum Innum Sila Pengalum (SISP) is an ode to all of the lost women, who could have been sports stars, singers, bankers, lawyers, doctors, just... happy, if they hadn't been enslaved in matrimony, and then forgotten all about.
One of the cool things about my mother was that she was an ace athlete and a champion sculler as a young woman in the 1950s and 60s. I only found out about this side of her a few years ago. I imagine her in a paavaadai dhaavani, taking on the mighty Kaveri river so many decades ago.
I recently watched a Tamil film anthology on SonyLiv that she would have liked to watch – Sivaranjiniyum Innum Sila Pengalum, (SISP) that has 3 stories of 3 different women – Saraswathi, Devaki, and Shivaranjini.
Like all the heroines in the anthology, my mother’s talents were sacrificed at the altar of matrimony. She pawned her gold medals and silver cups one by one to pay for expensive textbooks for us or a gift for a niece on her wedding, money for which she didn’t dare ask my father, because it was her niece… I remember how she caressed the cups and how her face hardened as she shoved them into her bag to take to the jewellers.
Heartbreak is a universal phenomenon, whether man or a woman. Why are so many heartbreak songs in Bollywood today sung by male voices, sometimes even for a woman's heartbreak?
Heartbreak is a universal phenomenon, whether man or a woman. Why are so many heartbreak songs in Bollywood today sung by male voices, sometimes even for a woman’s heartbreak?
Heartbreak is an everyday affair just like study, work, living and daily chores, because everyday, or to be precise, even every hour of any day we go through some heartbreak.
Yes. That’s true. What is heartbreak anyway? Anything that the heart desires but is not fulfilled; rather, shattered. Isn’t it? Be it studies where you’ve really worked hard for some exam and still get low marks. Be it work where you’ve really gave your 100 percent and still didn’t get the expected acknowledgement. Be it in your friends’ circle where you’re the one who holds the group together and still get rebuked for not making more effort? And lastly in love life where every little denial is a mini heartbreak and the ultimate rejection is the big heartbreak.
