Retrograde. Bamboozlement! More Bamboozlement!

Sabse pehle Kuch nahi tha

September 26, 2009
Late last night I got an email from Varun Grover of Jayhindtv appreciating my little blog. Jay Hind is a funny online Tv show, first of its kind, hosted by Sumeet Raghvan (of 'Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai' fame, perhaps the last funny Indian sitcom. Or maybe I long damaged my funny bone). Here's their Youtube channel.

And here's Sumeet Raghvan singing the 'Bharat Ek Khoj' inspired title track 'Sabse pehle Kuch nahi tha' for Jay Hind taking a major dig at the monstrosities that reach our homes through TV. It's funny. Just so that you know who to blame, the evil lyrics are by Varun Grover.

aur chindi type toh bilkul nahi

I actually get a couple of appreciative email from all kind of people every odd month now. I would just like to publicly thank everyone who send me emails. Thank you!


  1. Ohh...I didn't know you had put it up. Thanks a lot! Am honored. :-)

    (Was out of town for some time so didn't even check net in the meantime.)

    - Varun

  2. In words of Vinay Pathak, 'Kya baat kar di !' :)


I always like to hear back :)
