Music in the time of Shikran....


Sometimes my friend Deepak takes a break form clicking hot photos of dosas, uthappas, and omelettes at breakfast, and decides to click the all time faithful banana, biding its time in a fruit basket.

Not used to appearing in the media like other Page 3 fancy fruits, sometimes, it hides behind a veil or ghunghat (in hindi) , before it is ready to face the world.

And possibly only emerges, when it ready to combine with milk, to create "shikran" , the perennial childhood favourite of all small kids and even some grown adults in Maharashtra.

Something written in appreciation , to be sung to the tune of another Bollywood favourite, "Ghoonghat ke aad se dilbar ka ...."  ( a link to this song below the poem)

  


घूँघट की आड़ से केले का
पकना अधूरा रहता है
जब तक ना पड़े,दीपक की नज़र

सिंगार अधूरा रहता है
घूँघट की आड़ से केले का

घूँघट की आड़ से केले का
पकना अधूरा रहता है
जब तक ना मिले, दूध से नज़र
शिकरण अधूरा रहता है
घूँघट की आड़ से दिलबर का
