Ok..this is about Hindi movies.. I love songs...and in old Hindi movies...they used to run around trees..literally while singing those songs...and would be out there on large grounds or where ever.. And well, when aunts and uncles used to take me for movies...finding buses and rickshaws would be tough.....especially when we were returning..so going to movies was nice...wearing good clothes and all that...but returning was not nice...lol Every time a duet got over...I had a question..how will they go home. Growing up is no fun. We know the answers. lol. Happy New Year everybody.

A very happy new year to you all there Vandy. Thanks for your wishes. I can just see you how lovely a child you must have been in your lovely clean nice clothes going to movies and hopping in rickshaw and singing. I would love to have gone there with you.

I enjoy those romantic songs from the old Hindi movies. In the ones I've seen, she always turns away when he tries to kiss her, but we know they like each other. I used a medium-old Hindi movie (at least I think it is) called Masoom to teach a littlle girl I worked with in Oakland more "appropriate" dance moves. Her mom let her watch garbage TV, so she could do bumps and grinds at age 5. I showed her the Lakdi Ki Kaathi video on YouTube, and she learned all of the moves that the kids do in that dance and song. She preferred them to the "adult" moves her mom had unknowingly taught her.

That is sweet...:) Masoom was indeed a great movie, and my little friends (soon to be 4 and his under 1 and a half year old sister) love that song. The other song they watch is Bum Bum bole masti main dole..and yeah...it has some bum movements which these kiddos love to watch. My little friend can watch this number 24/7 lol In fact, he insists that it be played when he is having his meal. Kids truly have special tastes. :)

@TheHorse ..my little friend is getting educated in English. :) But if teachers are as good in English as me, you can't expect them to be excellent. They will be better than us alright. :) He, however, learns mother tongue at home, and his mother and me, we talk to him in Hindi. He pronounces "ganda bachcha" (dirty boy) very nicely. :) That is what I tell him he dirties his hands or clothes. lol.

As a kid, I barely went to the cinema theaters. But whenever we did, I always enjoyed the trailers they show before the main movie. And when the main movie started, I would always ask mom when is the next movie going to show. I believed the trailers were small movies. And even today, when there is a dance sequence, I always feel like OMG, how can so many people dance to the tune with the same steps....and I always look at the dancers at the last row, and try finding out if anyone was doing it (dance steps) the other way round
