RAGINI- Now that summer’s almost over, I’m finally getting started on my beach bod! Going to the gym feels like such a daunting task, but one of the things that helped finally push me to go was finding a solid gym soundtrack. We have for you five playlists in five languages to fuel a week’s worth of workouts (or a year’s worth, if you’re more like me).

PRANEEKA, RAGINI, & SHIVANI- Summer is the most anticipated time of the year, and it's officially here! For many, the season brings with it an opportunity to take a break from working and just relax. It's a time to sit by the pool, sip lemonade, and spend time with friends. These playlists are for chill days like those. Whether you're lying in a hammock, reading a book by the lake, or just staying in, these songs are here to help you unwind.
PRANEEKA & SHIVANI- tamil playlist // note: yelani is a tamil word for tender coconut water.
RAGINI- hindi playlist // note: lassi is a popular indian yogurt-based drink.
RAGINI- This time last year I had pretty high hopes for 2016. Little did I know this year would turn out to be one of the most notoriously awful years in recent history. After Brexit, a Trump presidential nomination, and the passing of several iconic celebrities, I think we're all looking for a break from the constant L's 2016 has been giving us. Before we start setting our expectations for 2017, however, let's step back and look at some of the things that made this year personally more tolerable.
Happy new year from all of us at Garamasalas! We hope this year brings you the happiness and success you deserve!
This began as a post-finals playlist but it's actually perfect for any gathering, car ride, or solo dance party. Whether you're celebrating or looking for a way to ease your worries, do it the Indian way: by blasting some mast or kuthu songs and dancing your heart out. Remember, abhi to party shuru hui hai (the party's just begun); it's kondatta neram (time to party)!
PRANEEKA & MADELINE- Hey guys! So we decided to post something a little more personal this time. We previously mentioned that we became the best of friends instantly because we were interested in and valued similar things. One of those things brought us closer together: our taste in music. We both are musically inclined and appreciate different genres, so our tastes surprisingly fit so well together. Here's a little snapshot of the jams we love listening to. Enjoy, and we hope you discover someone new through these lists!
