PDM and some amazing women March 9, 2007

“Toota phoota dil ye humara, jaisa bhi hai ab ye tumhara”

( My broken heart, though good for nothing, is yours. )

That Kishore Kumar song from Muneemji is one of these popular songs from the yesteryears that I have heard hundreds of times and probably know its lyrics by rote but looks like I haven’t paid attention to what is really the meaning in there. What does that above sentence mean ? I mean, how dare he say that to his lover πŸ™‚ .

Imagine yourself in a shop and you come across this thing you want to buy but you found it slightly damaged. You ask the shopkeeper and he says – “Toota phoota item ye humara, jaisa bhi hai ab ye tumhara” – and insists you pay for it, how would you react πŸ˜€ .

That one must rigorously analyse and beat to death the lyrics of heavy weight philosophical types like Chingari Koi Bhadke ( which I think is one of the most meaningful songs out there – ask Rajaram ) is a given. But I guess I must more attention to lyrics from these funny songs.

This is the first in the series of PDMs ( The power of Deliberate misinterpretation ) to provide food for thought.


Some accounts of some extraordinary women from India – like the woman who has lowered dropout rates by giving away bicycles to little girls ( 450 so far ) so they can go to school ; or the one who has planted over 284 plants ( which are now trees taken over by the Govt. ) in the past 20 years to make up as she says, for her inability to conceive. And many more. Take a look.

And I must forget to mention this gorgeous woman’s marriage that is every bit good for the economy. Whats more :

A London tabloid has bagged exclusive media rights for the event for a reported two million pounds, which is expected to comfortably cover the cost of the 300-guest wedding.

Hi Sharath,

One suggestion:

I think it would be better if you shift the “home” and “about” tabs to the left instead of the right…I was reading somewhere that left alignment is preferred by most Internet users. I myself had to look for a few seconds before I figured out that you must have been formatting your blog layout…Also, since the “Epistles” tab is just underneath “home”, it kills the purpose of having a “home” tab. Just my 2 cents. Afterall, Blog hai aapka..Marzi hai aapki…haha

And you listen to Kishore da songs??Wow..Same here. Love Kishore Kumar’s movies and songs. I thought you didn’t even know hindi. Lol..Pardon my ignorance.

“Asked Rajaram”
Turns out,the two of you have decided not to give poetic-justice a chance.

Abhinav :

Cant agree more, but wordpress does not allow me to change that – I would have to choose one of the other templates that has it on the left. That is the problem here.

Ashwini :

Uuh…dont get you, maybe explain that in an email ?
