Today’s topic is Heady Bollywood. Our head or Sar is the center of our existence. All our activities are accomplished through the brain that is located inside our head. However, the meaning of heady is different – intoxication. But, I have chosen the word in the sense of having an intense or exhilarating effect. Many people are intoxicated or exhilarated about their wealth or their position in society. They need to remember that we are all human beings and move from Ashes to Ashes and Dust to Dust. The birth and death cycle does not spare any human.
Here are some Bollywood songs having the word Sar or head in their lyrics:
Mera juta hai Japani yeh patloon Englishtani sar pe laal topi Rusi… Shree 420 (1955)
Sar jo tera chakraye… Pyasa (1957)
Sar par topi laal haath mein resham ka rumal… Tumsa Nahin Dekha (1957)
Iski topi uske sar… Iski Topi Uske Sar (1998)
Seene pe rakhkar sar… Naseeb (1997)
Yeh Lucknow ki sar zamein… Chaudhvin Ka Chand (1960) Meaning of the word here is included with the next word zamein, which together means country, limits or region. The meaning does not precisely match the topic. That is why I have mentioned this song at the end. I have said it for a reason – to highlight the difference.
