Happy Monday! I get to spend 6-8 hours in a car driving through nothingness! And a snowstorm!
This is where you ask any question you want! With the understanding that (today at least), I will be typing my answers into a tiny cell phone screen at rest stops. But I will still answer! And you can keep coming back here all week with new questions that I will answer on full size keyboards like a normal person after today.
Now, question for you! Two questions really, one random and one Indian film related.
First, random question, how many of you think of this as Armistice Day and how many of you think of it as Veterans Day?
My mother brought me up telling me about the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, and how when my grandparents were in school, the teacher used to make them stop and stand at 11am for a moment of remembrance. So I always think of 11/11 as Armistice Day. Anyway, it’s way easier to remember than Veterans Day which moves around the calendar looking for a Monday! And I am very curious, with the range of ages and nationalities here, what you all grew up with.
Second, since I am in a car for eternity today, what are your go to car songs from Indian film?
You know what is perfect for me when I am running low on energy and interest? The song that is guaranteed to get me singing along at top volume and happy? “Bheegey Honth Tere” from Murder. It’s just so good! And so easy to sing along!
