Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai

This recent pic of mine reminded me of the opening lines of a Bollywood song mentioned above in the title. Its literal translation is “What’s Behind The Blouse?” That’s pretty straight and simple, isn’t it?

It is the metaphorical meaning, however, that arouses passions and raises controversies on what it represents, the female sexuality.

Way back in 1993, when the film Khalayak was released, its choli-ke-peeche song was banned both on All India radio and Doordarshan Television because it was considered vulgar and obscene, replete with double meanings.

But banning never helps, does it? It only whets the craze. In spite of huge criticism, the song became a rage and the film picked up lots of Filmfare awards.

Here is some free advice for still-not-bestseller writers. First get your books banned.

Phul Gaindwa Na Maro…

This Marigold flower reminded me of an old Hindi song sung wonderfully by Manna Dey…Phul Gaindwa Na Maro, na maro, Lagat Karajwa Mein chot…Really wonderful poetry with lots of double meaning…It means “Don’t hit me with a Marigold flower, don’t hit me, it hurts my soul… ”
