One of those posts about songs

I think one of the things that really binds India together, is music. Or more specifically, Bollywood music. There are various people, in my life at least, with whom the only conversations we have, where we talk at the same pitch, are about music.
This post is about just one song, Aaj kal paon zameen par, from the movie Ghar. It is a beautiful song that formed a part of the soundtrack in my head for about a year or so. I associate it deeply with one particular relationship - but in a very personal way. The other person has no clue (I think) that this song was tripping its way through my head those days. It is not even that the words were very appropriate or meaningful really. This song just was a background hum in my head.
The funny thing is that this song is linked to my passwords on various websites and the like from that time period. So now everytime I check hotmail, I have the song going around in my head! So even though the relationship has faded, the song keeps bumbling back.

Na na - everyone calls her di to begin with out of formality. After a point, you figure out that she has the mental age of a 21 year old. Then didi goes for a toss.

What say, Urmi old sport?
