Bartika Rai ‘Ghar’ Tour 2018

Bartika Rai lives in the United States. So she does not play live shows in Nepal that often. However, in December 2018, Bartika visited Nepal and toured around the country. Her tour was called ‘Ghar.’ In the tour, she played her first big show in Kathmandu.

Her show in Kathmandu was in Calm, Tangal, and it was a fully-packed show. The fans were super excited to hear her because her songs were so popular, and most of the fans had never heard her sing live.

‘Najeek’ is her most popular track. So it was the main song of the show. She played it at the very end. Because of the request of the fans, she performed the song twice in the same show. She even let the fans sing most of the song. It was a magical moment.

The Story Behind ‘Najeek’

Before playing the song, she shared the story behind it, and here is how it goes:

The year was 2015. Back then, Bartika worked as a waiter in a restaurant in New York. There was a guy who worked in the same restaurant. He was much younger than her.

Since they used to work together, the guy fell in love with her. He just decided that he is in love. But, Bartika, being much older, was not into him. She saw him like a younger brother.

Furthermore, her friends at the time were in their early 20s, just like her. So there was no chance that she would even consider being together with the guy, who was just 19 years old.

But he used to be around her most of the time, complimenting her, saying, “Your eyes are so pretty.” So that’s when she wrote ‘Najeek.’

In the song, she writes how she is trying to tell the guy to let go of the thought of them being together. Further, she writes how emotions and feelings can change quickly. So she tells the guy not to let his feelings decide their future together because she is still in the process of finding herself.
