Meridhun - Where Music Lives

One of the most interesting pass-time of the ragging days at our college is to parody all famous songs with all known slangs. The parodying by replacing the words with friends' names was fun.

Now, after getting into work place, we still continued the parodying songs to tease the co-workers. One of the harmless parody was to sing the following, whenever we get bored in antakshari’s

Jadoo Teri Nazar, Khushboo Tera Badan
Tu Haan Kar Ya Naa Kar , Tu Hai Meri Kiran Jadoo

in the tune of
Om Jai Jagadeesh hare, swaami jai jagadeesh hare

Talking about parodies, recently I came across this site Meridhun (, which has created a whole portal around parodying and making our own versions of popular melodies of bygone era. It’s a start up in Indore and has a nice business idea.

All we need to do is to select a song of our choice and suggest the modifications in the song. Meridhun crew will alter those portions of the song and deliver the song to you online or through a CD at a reasonable price.

I tried the song from Zamane Ko Dikhana Hai, by replacing Kaanchi, with my lady’s name:

Hoga Tumse Pyara Kaun, Humko To Tumse Hai Hey XXXX, Hey XXXX,

They delivered it promptly in a couple of days and my lady is surprised to listen to the almost original song with her lovely name in it.

It was fun. Try it.
