National integration is easy through marriages as Chetan Bhagat rightly pointed out but it leads to very interesting unsolvable unwanted unending unbearable unimaginable arguments such as the one me and my wife were having.
The argument as many others begins harmlessly centered around a Youtube video. Although the background for this argument is very complex, to keep it simple let me just say my wife despises every Kannada movie ever made. Also for some reason, she hates Upendra. In order to solve these complex issues, I chanced upon an idea of showing a Kannada movie made in late 80s made by the guru of Upendra to both prove that Upendra came with the right grooming and Kannada movies had a sense of originality.
In this pursuit,I found a movie in where there was a Kannada song 'Messe hotha gandasighe demandapo'.
(Kannada Link ->No more..
Ps: This kannada video has been pulled down for copyright infringement further complicating matters).
Within a day or two in a Facebook message, my wife showed me the same song in Telugu with the same dance sequences, same playback singer albeit a different but according to her better actor.
The argument on my side was that the Kannada movie was made first and the song was flicked in its entirety into the Telugu movie. My better half believed in the exact opposite. Like any other argument we have, where debates and discussions cannnot be concluded, we had to take the help of Mr.Google and Mr.Wiki. Unfortunately, in this case, the only information available was that both movies were made in the same year and thats where the information trail in the web world ended. So where does this leave us?
We were left only with two options. One was a blog post and second was a snail mail to S.P. Balasubramanyam the playback singer, Kashinath the Kannada actor and Rajendra Prasad, the Telugu hero.
Here is us hoping that somebody can help us in our relentless pursuit of national integration....
