nostalgia (the rajiv gandhi slum mix)

WCNJ ("America's first and only 24 hour a day 7 day a week, Indian FM radio station") aired Julie Julie yesterday. It was about a decade (honest!) since I had heard that song ... Anu Malik warbling for Mithun in the Bollywood assembly line flick Jeete Hain Shaan Se. Used to be a slum staple (the slum in question was one called "rajiv gandhi", situated right behind my house) for festive occasions (more often than Hindu festivals). Another favourite was jhopadpati zindabad {translation: long live slums} from Ghar ek Mandir (another Mithun vehicle).
