Kanishk Seth, electronic indie producer
This was last year, and my girlfriend was returning to Mumbai from Delhi. It was her birthday and I really wanted to do something special for her. So, since she likes Rumi, I sat down for a day or two before her birthday and composed, recorded and produced a track based on Rumi's lyrics. I tweaked it a bit to fit her name in, because it rhymes with his. I then played the track in the car while driving her home from the airport.
Isheeta Chakrvarty, jazz singer
Back when I was in college, I once made a record for my then boyfriend on his birthday that had Come Away With Me by Norah Jones and U2's With or Without You. I was newly in love, and those were really young days. I chose these songs because I do love them and a cheesy part of me was totally tripping out on them.
Trideep Roy, DJ
My girlfriend, Shreya, and I both love this track called Man O To by Nu. And I remember that I was playing at a gig at a newly opened Bandra pub. It was a warm-up set and there weren't too many people around at the time. In fact, she was the only person on the dance floor, and I slipped the track in as a symbol of my affection for her, since I knew that even though not too many people had heard of the track back then, both of us found it special.
