Chaddi Pehen Ke Phool Khila Hai

I remember when I was a kid, I used to wait for 9 AM every Sunday to watch Jungle Book episodes dubbed in Hindi. Mom used to be, "Bhavdeep wash your hair. Its time for weekend hair wash beta. (Ok I had a bubble on my head till 1st year engineering)" Me: "yes mom. one second" Mom : "Tera one second toh aab Mowgli ke baad hi khatam hoga!!!"
I had no clue that it was dubbed in Hindi, thought it was original, till someone told me to look at the names of producer and director, they were bloody Japanese. "These Japs are every where. Arrrgh!!!"
There might be hazaar things which happned in my life, Good - Great - Bad - Worse but Jungle Book was so so so much fun, always one of the best things I loved doing (ok watching TV is also a work I do). Watching it with cousins and becoming sad when wolves die and become tensed when Sher Khan and Mowgli fight the final battle. Now a days I laugh at myself, "Eh?? I was like that??" But still whenever Jungle Book comes on TV these days ( yes it comes on SAB TV and Sahara Manoranjan, for people who still want to see and say Naaaah I don't give a damn), may be for the billionth time, I make sure I sit there for 3 or 4 minutes and pay a tribute to the kid in me, smile at myself and say "hmmm woh bhi kya din the!!"

Listen to the opening song : Jungle Jungle. Enjoy!!! :-)

I love you Mowgli.

SILVER!!!

I repeat the first dialogue of Vikram. ARAFAT???!!! AAFAT! Why not Ahmedijinad, huh? :P And is this action, by any chance, influenced by the protests to Jylland-Posten cartoons? Lol.

And I looooooooooove Jungle Book...yeah, still do. :) Such a fun program! I loved Baghira and even Ka. ;) BTW, I never knew that it was made by the Japanese...hehe.
Oh, and thanks for posting that song...I had gone crazy looking for it. *Sings* Jungle Jungle baaaaaaaat chali hai pata chala hai, Jungle jungle baaaaaaat chali...*stops* okay, okay, won't torture you. :P

For all those who don't know the real "Jungle Book" (the film is based on a story of the book) from Rudjard Kipling, I can really recommend it. As a boy, it was one of my favorites.

The animation film of the jungle book (although not the japanese version but that from Walt Disney) was probably the first movie I saw in cinema. What a great experience...

Jungle book-the cartoon was made in the year 1985..the original was a book by rudyard kipling..it was made into a cartoon with the support of the japanese government..it was a documentary and then converted into a cartoon..infact,the cartoon preceded the book..and therefore rudyard kipling..and since you saw the cartoon,it makes you older than rudyard kipling..rudyard kipling is reportedly dead..you are way older than him..so you must be dead..amen ! may the lord have mercy on your sinful soul !
So,howzzat for irrelevant information a.k.a trivia ??!
*kini se panga ? kabhhhi nahhi...*
