Today’s third post is Forgetful Bollywood. Most of us find that they are forgetful. There could be several reasons for that. When we walk below a beam or go out of a room, we could forget why we came to that place, in the first place. This is one of the common reasons for forgetting something. Sometimes, we can forget incidents from childhood because several years have passed. A medical condition called amnesia is also a reason for forgetting some part of our past. Amnesia can be partial or total. Poets have used this phenomenon of forgetting in several ways. Here’s a sampling of Bollywood songs that depict it.
Bhula nahin dena ji bhula nahin dena… Baradari (1955)
Bhool sakta hai bhala kaun… Dharmaputra (1961)
Gar tum bhula na doge… Yakeen (1969)
Tum mujhe yun bhula na paoge… Pagla Kahin Ka (1970)
Main na bhoolonga… Roti Kapda Aur Makan (1974)
Yaad nahin bhool gaya… Lamhe (1991)
