song Description:

The final track of RIYAAZ is more contemplative than the other pieces in this album. In a way, I wanted this piece to shed light on mental wellness in South Asian communities in Western countries. Immigrant families are known for being ambitious, and there's often lots of pressure heaped on South Asian youth overseas to succeed, though not enough support to reconcile setbacks, which are only natural in life. The fact is, on some street in a busy Indian city, there is some shopkeeper who owns a small store where he sells some produce. Though he doesn't make much money, he supports his community with groceries, supports his family, and lives his life with honor, integrity, and peace. Though he is but a firefly in an indian summer, there is an elegance to living with such dignity.
