Happy Birthday Urmila Matondkar! A Dozen Reasons I Love You

Another birthday!  And another one I am mostly excited about because of the song options.  There is often a secret motive behind these birthday posts, that being that I really want an excuse to dig through all the songs of the birthday boy or girl.  And Urmila has such great songs!

Happy Birthday Dilip Sahib!!!!! I Read Your Autobiography for Your Birthday Part 1

I finally read it!  Don’t tell my friend who brought it for me all the way from India 2 years ago, only for it to sit on my shelf unnoticed unloved and unread.  Until now!  It took a while, but I finally finished it.  And it was fascinating in lots of little “history of the industry” ways.
