Bollywood movies in 80's

Running through the list below: all that comes to my mind is bollywood romance in 80’s.
  •  Sarso ke khet: Geez! I have not yet figured out what has running from two ends to do with romance. Is it the farther you come from the more impact it has or is it because you paid $$  to move around the khet that you don’t wanna leave a single end?
  • Scenic views in songs: If you have seen yash chopra’s movie, you would have seen all the mountains, valleys, tress surrounding the actor-actress in a scene.  How the tourist industry would have developed in Switzerland, Tokyo, Russia without bollywood  movies promoting them.
  • Bridal lift: Now this one is romantic. But imagine the pressure it built upon the newlyweds or couples to imitate it.  I mean if the girl is light weighted, the boy is safe but if not god bless his back.
  • Moon: Remember, the actor sitting by the window and comparing the actress’s face with moon on first night scenes and next thing you see is rising sun with them awake in bed.  As a kid I always wonder what was the connection between them?  
  • Bush dances: Remember, when actor and actress began to kiss or came close to each other?  You can’t miss that one for sure if you have seen any romantic 80’s bollywood movie.  With the western world influence on bollywood today, that sight is rare. But, didn’t you once think why those bushes came closer or buds bloomed when they kissed? 
    Yes, its hilarious and we all laugh about it in retrospect but there is more to it than just fun.  So far I have never seen such creativity and imagination in western/asian movies and ads as found in Indian movies and ads.

    rain, rain, go away -seriously???

    As I walk on the rippled filled payments
    managing to stay dry
    smelling the drenched leaves
    It amuses me why romance is always related to rain??
    Is it because they forced romance in 80's bollywood scenes when a girl dances in rain and guy adores her wet looks?
    Is it because they showed couples under a umbrella in essel world ads?
    Is it because the cool breeze is soothing as beloved's embrace?
    Is it the smell of wetland that triggers the romantic hormones?
    Is it because  mom's pakodas  are sizzling?

    Don't tell me you dont find the idea of sharing the umbrella with him/her in rain. You pretty well know neither of you will stay dry but hey, its still romantic, isn't it?
    Don't tell me that you don't have craving for pakodas in rain.
    Don't tell me you never listened to romantic songs while it rained?
    Don't tell me you never cursed a fellow car or bike driver for splashing the puddle over your dress while walking on side way.

    Well, we all have different notions with rains.
    I have a strong aversion to the writer of the famous nursery rhyme
    "Rain, rain, go away, Come again another day;
    Little Arthur wants to play."
    1.  It gave some lame people a reason to hate the natural blessing,
    2. Rhymes are like physchological virus they never get erased from your memory(we all know how we were forced to memorize those as kids and then narrate to every neighbor or family member),
    3. Rainy days can be the best time to be adventurous with your games

    As a kid we had a family ritual to embrace the first rain of the season, no matter what.
    With my grandpa singing a gujarati rhyme" Aav re varsad, ghebaryo varsad, uni uni rotli ne karela nu shak"[now that is one example i can say though romance and poems have rooted in western world, Indians have embraced it first ;) wanna debate, next time, Peace out]
    Not that I liked getting drenched when i just accomplished to stay dry while coming back from school
    Made me to think did i just tried hard to stay dry to get wet all over again??
    But once, those tiny little droplets hits you,
    all you want to do is fight back and say you can't hit me now
    oh! how can i forget the puddle splashes and the paper boats.
    I used to love rains for getting school days off and mumma's pakodas.
    [now that is advantage of schooling in india as you have more than 3months holidays in entire school year]
     Last year i was fortunate enough to enjoy the rains and revisit my childhood
    But i was counter questioned are you still a kid?
    How easily we tend to ignore such little things we once loved as we grow up.
    Who said growing up is to give up the things you liked as a kid?
    So, shrug that responsible shoulder once it begins to rain,
    you dont need to get all drenched, eew i can imagine the plight of people mocking at your wet rear;
    but you can pop your hand outside the car or peep out your face and feel the tiny droplets over you,
    and if you are just adventurous like me, i would play Frisbee.
    If you still not convinced with enjoying in rains, man! I seriously recommend you watching those 80's bollywood rain scenes.

    80's bollywood movies reminds me of something else now, but, if i continue i might be showered with my advisor's rebukes, so let me resume again to my bone study.

    ABC(live, love, laugh)

    I once asked my love
    Tell me something nice 
    and out came the phrase
    Dil mein mere hain dard-e-disco!
    To my surprise my ears had no fumes
    but my jaws busted into giggle.

    Well, such is life.
    Sudden and yet impressive.
    They say three "L's" make life: Live, Laugh, Love
    If you ask me 
    That's lame!
    Why the other 25 letters of ABC be left?
    So let's begin!
