Phool hai anek kintu...


Yesterday I saw a TV programme on CNN IBN (I think!) on the Films Division of India animation, "Ek Anek Aur Ekta" of the 80s. Remember? Wonder why we dont get to see it these days on TV. What a cute animation it was! My sis and I used to be so upset if we did nt watch it from the beginning.As soon as the Films Division logo came on the screen, we would hope it was the "Ek Anek"animation. "Yeh Anek kya hai Didi?" So sweet! And only yesterday I came to know that the cute little voice of the singer belongs to Sadhna Sargam! Wow!

Check out the video here if you want to watch it using Windows Medial Player. Or here if you have Real Player. Let nostalgia take hold of you for a while. We need it! :)

Ah..those were good times on TV. Wonder when/how it got so crappy! :-(

Very nostalgic..

Remember the one about railway crossing.. It is sad but at the same time, teaches the lesson needed.

And another one about not wasting food.. "Ek anna ka ye dhaana, suk thega mujukku man maana.." Very cute..

just a few months ago, found this windows media version of "Ek Anek" and got all my friends to see it...felt so excited seeing it after so many many years...
Feel really nostalgic abt those yrs of DD Metro ...no such crazy private channels and azhugai mega serials..:-)

Used to also like these 'Mile Sur Mera tumhara' and 'Bhaje Sargam' etc ...

You write beautifully ...
Prax found out your blog for me. We both had fun reading it together.(He hates anybody using the phrase "my husband" and I am still figuring out how to introduce him). We are planning on having a child soon. It was that which inspired us getting into your blogs, absolutely beautifully honestly written pieces, I fell head over heals with your attitude towards your own parenthood. But then there was the sweet surprise of finding the cherishable spousehood in you! It was like reading Milan Kundera. and men love reading yours, did I mention Prakash showed me yours?
