Get Your Bollywood Fix : Listen to Radio Zindagi in Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia

One would think listening to the online marketing gurus that you hear about new products, happenings online. This is not always true. I heard about Radio Zindagi from my wife who heard it from a colleague.  Radio Zindagi is a - a AM radio station playing South Asian Music with predominantly Bollywood Hindi music on your dial at 950 AM in the Washington DC, Virginia, Maryland area. Originally based in San Francisco Radio Zindagi expanded into the DC area in June 2013.

Even if the  signal is sometimes spotty, I love listening on the weekend and getting a feel of nostalgia. You can even listen to them online, streaming at  or Radio Zindagi  Andorid App on Google Play. They are also on Tunein Radio.

I love the causal banter from the DJs and the humor in the programs. If you are a fan of Bollywood music do check this station out, Of course on weekdays I am listening to Nathan Hager on WNEW or NPR's Marketplace. My weekends I try to catch the Prairie Home Companion, Car Talk and Wait Wait Don't Tell Me on NPR.

Radio Zindagi is available 24x7 on 100.7FM and 104.7 FM in Central New Jersey with highest India population and also on HD2 97.1 FM in New York and Connecticut, and 950 AM in DC, Maryland and Virginia.

Listen to AM 950 AM and let me know what you think?

It's produced by British Airways but I cannot think of it as an ad. I am leaving for India in the next few weeks and this video touched my heart as it will millions of us who have moved from home and setup another home. it is not necessary that you moved from another country, you probably sometimes feel this when you move aaway from your hometown.

Watch this and let me know what you felt after watching this.

The Seed That Grew Into a Tree

SXSW - South By South West  SEED

When I was a kid, I was fascinated by the "Jack and the Bean Stalk" story and what I learnt about seeds and how they grow into plants was fascinating. I am not a gardner even though I wish I was. Planting sunflower seeds and seeing them grow and then bend over was interesting

I take the occasional flower pictures.

My dream is that one day I will toss a seed into the wilderness and it will grow into a beautiful tree. Is this dream unusual? What do you think ?
