A while ago, I tried to remember my tryst with Indian classical music. The song that first came to my head was this one by purandara dasa:
Kereya neeranu kerege chelli, varava paDedavaranthe kaaNiro
Roughly translates to ?pour the water from the lake back into the lake and try to look as if you?ve gotten a boon or something!? Strong stuff. captures a lot of what a lot of people keep doing. Like my cousin who used to borrow money from her parents and buy gifts for them!
