And this week's sign that we live in the 21st century: a Bollywood music video subtitled in German. There is perhaps no greater contrast to the over-the-top absurdity (the song's name translates to "Speak, bangles!") of an Indian movie than its being translated into the gruffness and business-like tone of German. For example, "hai, mein hogaya tera sajana" means "Oh, I became your beloved", but comes out respectably in German: "klingt das wie: ich bin dein". I like to learn something everyday.

Anyway, enjoy, especially if you're female and get to gaze at Hrithik Roshan for almost 7 minutes.
