By Bryan Durham - November 14, 2019
Being on the cover of a Spotify playlist is a big deal and the latest move by the streaming giant in India will elicit a number of awwws for sure and probably convince you to put your own bachpan ka pic on social media.
The most popular Spotify editorial playlists in India will have you getting nostalgic in no time, with artists in genres as diverse as Bollywood, Punjabi, Indie, Tamil and Telugu being featured.
These covers will be live till tomorrow evening, we’re told.
Here’s what some of them had to share about those pics…
FEATURES ON COVER OF: Bollywood Mush
STORY BEHIND THE PIC: I was around nine years old at the time, I think. This picture was clicked right before I went on Sa Re Ga Ma Pa L’il Champs. It was part of the set from my very first photoshoot.
FEATURES ON COVER OF: I Pop
STORY BEHIND THE PIC: I was six months old at the time. My mom tells me we were headed for a wedding and I was wearing a new ghagras choli and posing (like the pose that I am), with the expression, ‘Mom, I’m ready to leave. Are you ready or not?!’.
PS: Her mom had this to share, “When Akasa was three or four years old, she’d go up to my room, use my makeup and demand that her dad take photos!”

STORY BEHIND THE PIC: This was clicked on the first day of my mom (who plays the guitar really well; my dad does, too!) starting to reach me the guitar with chords. It was the day I learnt the G Major chord. I was six or seven at the time.
