R..D..B


if ur thinking of the punjabi guys singing "aaja maahi".. then no .. .. this is ... "rang de basanti "..... after like a really long time .. today i heard the song .... Khoon chala .... and i dunno if it does anything to u ... (in a clean way )... but it really makes my heart do these queer turns ... .. because every time i watch that movie (obviously i got the DVD ..... u think i wont buy it )..... i have this want to do something ... for this magnificent country i call home .....( i dont mean it in a cliche i am the guest of honour in a kids school .. speech way at all ).... i mean it just as much any other .... tantrum throwing teenager would think of it .... what the movie has done for me ... other than make me laugh .. and fall in love with kunal kapoor ... it has made me want to see INDIA .... heheh no no not in a road trippin way .. just to see india ... with friends hopefully .... the want to dance in a mela in punjab .. and drink lassi .......... those are the small things .. the bigger things it has taught me is ..... stick to something .... be it killing a screwed up politcian ... or just sticking up for a friend ..... dont waver just stick ....... it has taught me . that ... u have a voice ... go get urself a voters card .. and speak .... it has taught me .... the armed forces .. no matter what will have the respect no other job in india .. can everrr think of gaining ..... it has told me ... i am tomorrows INDIA..... and everytime i do hear that song ... i really feel a generation awakening ....i know for sure .. out of hunderds of kids .. and adults who watched that movie ... three wouldve .. made an effort to actually think of joining politics .. or .. doing something different ... the rest wouldve just .. downloaded the wallpapers off the net .. and put the song as their ringtone .......i am so sure ... half the people who saw it .. are in .. the US .. and in UK .... telling their firang friends to watch that movie ...... i dont know if i myself .. will be able to do anything for this country .... but ther is a lingering hope and a flickering flame in me ... that is pushin me ... towards being that generation ... that will awaken .. some day from their slumber ...... i have no idea .. why i even bothered writing this ..... but still ...........aurevoir

"....there is a lingering hope and flickering flame in me..." very wonderfully written man...like nidhi says, it's the belief...and now, a fact. We will be a great nation, actually a greater nation than we are now (and i ain't just talking about the population...hehe). Great post. Cheers!!!
