Nostalgia!

Long time back, DD used to show animated short films to fill gaps in between programmes. Some of my favourite cartoons used to be 'misusing stop chains in trains', 'cleanliness' etc. While searching for a song, I came across this clip which sure took me down memory lane.

Check it out:
Ek Chidiya Anek Chidiyan

Deepak, ya, it would have made a great rakhi post! I was so excited having found it yesterday night that I just posted it.

Munimma, the nasal voice is kind-of funny. But it hardly bothered us cos' we used to watch it with mouth open!!

Gangadhar, welcome!

Keerthi, It was while searching for 'Mile sur' that I came across this.

aparna
thanxs for the link.It was nostalgic trip.Hmmm that simple melody which can stir up so much.Where did i lose those innocence that made me love this simple simple animation.

Me too said...

Sen(thil), most welcome!
The animation - even it got me thinking. Recently I brought some tamil animated rhymes, stories CDs from Chennai. When compared, the 'ek chidiya..' animation is so superior!

sen said...

it is composed by veteran MD vasanth desai that's why.see how it changes from a innocent rhyme to a marching song...

Me too said...

Sen,

Ya, a magical song it is!

BTW, checked out Vasanth Desai's other works and pleasantly surprised to find a number of good songs.

Sen, I have heard about him but did not exactly know his works. It was indeed a pleasant surprise to find Vani Jeyram's 'Bole re papi..' to be his work!
