Almost every time I went to that channel (during breaks in program on some other channel), this song was playing.
It somehow gave me goosebumps every time I heard it over this weekend, even though the sound system of our TV itself is 2 decades old. Maybe its because of nostaligia, or maybe the kinda people I see in it are the kinds I relate(d) more to. These days I don't relate much to anybody. Maybe the because the song is stored in some special part of my brain. Maybe I associate it with the 'Those were the days' days. Whatever the reason, the song thrilled me every time from Friday to Sunday. Infact, the first time I heards it this weekend, I was able to predict and chant (although gibberish to me) the wierd lyrics of all many of the languages after their respective introductory music! (Even though I don't have the faintest idea which language it was that I was singing ;), let alone the meaning of the 'gibberish')
But one thing hit me, which had never hit me before.
In the final scene, little children in saffron, white and green come running from 3 directions and form the tricolour. But in that, the saffron and green are worn by boys. Only the white strip is made of girls. Sex ratio of 1:2 ????? Are they trying to indicate thats where India is headed???!!!!!!
(I am sure green strip was all boys and white all girls. I tried to concentrate so many times at the saffron. Could not confirm if it was all boys. Though I definitely could not classify any one of them as girl. At last I have settled for all boys saffron. Let me know if any of you actually happens to see that song, and in that rare event, if you can confirm any girl in the saffron strip)
