Incestous inspiration

So we all know Anu Malik gets the "inspiration" for his tunes from other famous tunes. Some call it plagiarism, some call it inspiration. But did you know he picks from his own tunes as well? What do you call this phenomenon? Incestuous inspiration maybe?

Case in point:
Here is a song from Baazigar release in 1993. Note the tune at 1:53 to 2:12.

Sounds familiar? That's because it was the title song of Fiza, released 7 years later in 2000. Listen in from 0:10 onwards. Eh??!!

Will show some more of these in my following posts. One big hint: Yash Raj Films always repeats a tune from the previous hit movie in the next movie. Try finding some :)

In case you missed the Paan shop...

Taken on Residency Road, Bangalore. This guy either has very loyal customers, or is a bigger paan shop brand than Spinn and Mojos combined. Probably both!

Pizza Roma

Brit humour in action again... good one this.
Sign outside a Pizza Express outlet in London: Yes, we now do genuine Roman pizzas. No, we don't do fake Roman accents.

Why do you even try?

This classic is from an office door on Cunningham Road, Bangalore. Gets the message across pretty clearly in-spite of the rampant abuse of the English language, I must admit!

Don't you get it?

Taken in London, somewhere near Oxford street. Just to be absolutely clear what you are walking into...

School or college?

Oxford, England offers some googlies too. Which one is it - school or college?

The Scots have it too!

Yes, the Scots talk funny. Seriously! This was a Souvenir shop in Edinburgh, Scotland. This'll do nicely!

For a rainy day...

This one was taken at a Sev-puri stall in Saket, New Delhi. The stall was just outside a State Bank of India branch office, so I am guessing all the "saving" rubbed off on the Sev-puri as well...

Word Games

English humour rocks! This one was taken in front of the Sherlock Holmes Museum on Baker Street, London. A laundry shop with the tagline "We will dye for you"!
