I hardly get to watch Tv these days and even when i do  get time , most of it goes by just surfing around the channels . There arent any genuine entertainment programs available these days . All one could see is sick mega soaps where one women plots against another or  the reality shows where people do everything to disgrace themselves in front of public  or lame news channels which covers  a tiger-tigress love story . And living in cities like Chennai doesn’t help either because they bring in some crap Set top system and remove all the good channels saying that they are not free . Now i understand the meaning of Nothing Comes Free.

Let me come to the topic without deviating anymore 😛 .   Changing channels with a stone aged remote is a big pain in the ass hands 😛 . Bang it here ,bang it there and then press the button and it   will work . Thats the mantra for operating the remote  which no one in my home ,except me, understands . So i was changing the channels .. 1 …. bang bang …2… bang bang … ..67 . and then it stopped .I could not beleive my eyes .I was seeing the good old DD channel  in malayalam though . and guess what ??  The channel showed Mile sur mera tumhara ad  . I dint move an inch during the whole song . Even even my mom who was running from one room to another , stopped to watch it .

Created in 1988 by Lok Seva Sanchar Parishad, and promoted by Doordarshan and India’s Ministry of Information , the song still remains in the heart of millions of people . 6 minutes of complete bliss .thats what the song is .A song which describes our country as a whole , which teaches the meaning  of Unity in Diversity ,harmony and National integration .Too bad that no private channels show it anymore when it is most needed.

Political Parties dividing the country for vote bank is not new these days . I think those people should be locked in a room and this song should be played 24×7  😉 .

Anyways here is the song ..

  3. Hello.. 🙂
    It’s d same with all remotes.. Mine keeps showing the Menu no matter what button I click.. oops.. press!!

    And the song.. It’s really good & refreshing to hear it after a long time.. But NOT when a friend makes you hear it 4 times in a row..!! I remember how difficult, those 25-something minutes were (no offence..) 😐

  4. I loveeee this song too!!! and I used to sing it in my butler hindi! ya it was like listening to sounds and mimicking but it went well! I started learning hindi in 6th class with gr8 difficulty to my teacher haha

  22. I love this song and sing it all the time, when two children cry at the same time, two politicians from different parties join hands or two Congress men praise Sonia ji and Rahul baba.

    Arvind 🙂

  23. Oh I love this song..Thanks for refreshing good old memories..Long time since i ever saw this..I love the 3.00 and 3.20 the most …India is a beautiful country…
