Listen: ‘F For Fyaar’ from ‘Manmarziyaan’ suggests something more than garden-variety love

One of the better songs from Amit Trivedi in a lacklustre year.

“Pyaar yaara tode dil kaddi jodh de / Fyaar yaara strong se palang todh de” – Why be in “pyaar”, and get hearts broken, when you can break beds with “fyaar”? So suggests F For Fyaar, the first single from Anurag Kashyap’s upcoming film Manmarziyaan.

F for Fyaar is a Punjabi bhangra hip-hop number with clever lines by lyricist Shellee who had earlier written a bunch of lovely Punjabi songs for Abhishek Chaubey’s Udta Punjab. The idea behind F For Fyaar is that “fyaar” offers a little something more than garden-variety love. The thought is reminiscent of Woody Allen’s lines from the romantic comedy Annie Hall (1977): “Love is too weak a word for what I feel, I lurve you.”

Amit Trivedi has composed the song. The vocals are by Mast Ali and rapper Sikander Kahlon. The sonic elements are sparse, but on point: a steady electronic beat, a tumbi and the dubstep beat drop that leads to Kahlon’s rap.

Manmarziyaan is the story Vicky (Vicky Kaushal) and Rumi (Taapsee Pannu). Vicky’s careless attitude leads to Rumi getting engaged to the sombre Robbie (Abhishek Bachchan). A saga begins. Written by Kanika Dhillon, the film will be released on September 14.

F For Fyaar, Manmarziyaan.

The cost of setting up an employee-friendly office in Mumbai

And a new age, cost-effective solution to common grievances.

A lot has been theorised about employee engagement and what motivates employees the most. Perks, bonuses and increased vacation time are the most common employee benefits extended to valuable employees. But experts say employees’ wellbeing is also intimately tied with the environment they spend the bulk of the day in. Indeed, the office environment has been found to affect employee productivity and ultimately retention.

According to Gensler’s Workplace Index, workplace design should allow employees to focus, collaborate, learn and socialise for maximum productivity, engagement and overall wellbeing. Most offices lag on the above counts, with complaints of rows of cluttered desks, cramped work tables and chilled cubicles still being way too common.

But well-meaning employers wanting to create a truly employee-centric office environment meet resistance at several stages. Renting an office space, for example, is an obstacle in itself, especially with exorbitant rental rates prevalent in most business districts. The office space then needs to be populated with, ideally, ergonomic furniture and fixtures. Even addressing common employee grievances is harder than one would imagine. It warrants a steady supply of office and pantry supplies, plus optimal Internet connection and functioning projection and sound systems. A well-thought-out workspace suddenly begins to sound quite cost prohibitive. So, how can an employer balance employee wellbeing with the monthly office budget?

Co-working spaces have emerged as a viable alternative to traditional workspaces. In addition to solving a lot of the common problems associated with them, the co-working format also takes care of the social and networking needs of businesses and their employees.

WeWork is a global network of workspaces, with 10 office spaces in India and many more opening this year. The co-working giant has taken great care to design all its premises ergonomically for maximum comfort. Its architects, engineers and artists have custom-designed every office space while prioritising natural light, comfort, productivity, and inspiration. Its members have access to super-fast Internet, multifunction printers, on-site community teams and free refreshments throughout the day. In addition, every WeWork office space has a dedicated community manager who is responsible for fostering a sense of community. WeWork’s customised offerings for enterprises also work out to be a more cost-effective solution than conventional lease setting, with the added perks of WeWork’s brand of service.
