Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi
Thodi Meethi, Thodi Khatti
Thodi Teekhi, Thodi Pheekee
Phir Bhi Isko Hanskar Jeeneka.....
Ik Alag Hi Hai Mazaa!
Before you start wondering about my post title today, the title is lifted from one of the early episodes of the popular TV serial of the 80s - Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi. I am sure most of you have heard of or watched this serial and you may be aware that the storyline revolved around the funny incidents in the day to day lives of Ranjit, Renu and Raja played by Shafi Inaamdar, Swaroop Sampath and Rakesh Bedi respectively. The diverse roles played by Satish Shah is beyond praises.
Yesterday was particularly a stressful day in the office. Some of the ‘office politics’ really brought me down. Talking to a dear friend helped. Just to cheer my mood further, I decided to watch Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi in the evening. I watched one of the early episodes of the serial where Ranjit and Renu let their South Indian neighbours invite a prospective groom and his parents to meet their daughter, at their house. Rakesh Bedi disguises as a renowned astrologer Rajam Shastri to match the horoscopes of the groom and the bride and during the process of matching the horoscopes he uses terminologies such as immediate resultam, fast parinaamam and very gooddum! The episode had me laughing heartily and made me forget all my worries. Thus passed another day. There is always a reason to laugh. Yeh jo hai zindagi – very gooddum!
