I heard a wedding procession pass by on the lane. The band-wala men were playing a  few very popular classic love numbers. I was playing a game on my laptop, and was glad to hear the songs again after a long time. And then suddenly, the next song they played was Mere desh ki dharti !         A patrioitic song!

Really? That was my first thought. The second was to listen a bit longer and confirm if that was really the song. And oh, well, turned out, that was the song.

I know it’s a happy wedding procession and the they just wanted to dance to music.                         But a patriotic song? Just because it’s fast-paced and popular?

Needless to say, while I was amused and went WTF, I’m sure people had a good time dancing to it.
