For now, here it is, Aparna Shukla’s `Soch..its all in the mind’

Har fasad ki jad teri yeh soch hai..
Ke soch ke yeh socha..

Jo socha kyun na hua..

Honay par fir yeh socha

Jo hua kyun na socha…?

Har pal jo jaal boonay..teri yeh soch hai…

 Hoti haiwaan kabhi…

Leti yeh jaan tabhi…

Banke shaitaan woh toh…

Bechey imaan kabhi…

Shaatir jo chaal chaley..teri yeh soch hai…

Ke badle tu soch jo…Tera yeh waqt ho…

Apni hi soch se… Tu toh sashakt ho…

Banade ya bigadey tujhe…teri yeh soch hai…

Karde lachaar tujhe teri yeh soch hai…

Aur pal mein sanwaare woh bhi…

Teri yeh soch hai….

Haalaaton ke aagey jab tu majboor hota hai….

Neeyat ko badlne ka dastoor hota hai..

Karle tab apni soch pe tu kaabu…

Sambhal jaayega teri zindagi ka tarazu….

Umeedon ko jo kaayam rakhey teri yeh soch hai… 

Jeet ki udaan liye teri yeh soch hai…

Duniya jo badal daley…. teri yeh soch hai….

The Circus as a band came together in the year 2007, when Arsh Sharma and Anshul Lall formed the first lineup of the band. Once Abhinav Chaudhary came in on bass and Abhishek Bhatia came in on vocals the lineup was complete.
