Mojo Monday: Get Up and Dance to “Jaan Pehechan Ho”

It’s Mojo Monday, and as always, I’ve got a little something-something to lift your creative spirits, buoy you up, help you get your mojo on, and nudge (or better yet, catapult) you into writerhead.

If I could express how much I love this in words, I would. But really? Just better to get up and dance. Welcome to a stellar performance of “Jaan Pehechan Ho” (a Hindi phrase roughly translated as “We should get to know each other”).

I love this!


This is from GUMNAAN, a 1965 Indian horror thriller film. Wikipedia describes the plot as, “Seven people mysteriously win a free vacation. On the way to their destination, the plane has engine trouble and they are left abandoned in a remote seaside location. They find shelter in a large mansion inhabited by a comical butler Mehmood. One by one, they are murdered and the remaining vacationers try to figure out why they were chosen for the trip and what they have in common. Loosely based on Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None.”

Expat Sat: Speeding Around the World

Welcome to Expat Sat, the culturally kooky, map nonspecific, sometimes bewildering, always fascinating intersection of expat life and writerhead. And where every Saturday, I offer tips for writing, publishing, and thriving to expat writers around the globe.

I’m curious…how does this video make you feel? What does it inspire you to write? Do? Where does it inspire you to go?


I’m off to commune with the elephants…
