Magic In Tunes: 04/02/2015 – Bheegi Bheegi Raaton Mein

This post is perfect to depict how conversations roll from one point to the next to the next and on. I was talking to a friend and had told this person that I brought home-made Barley Bisi Bele Baath ( = Spicy Barley with Lentils) (Link to recipe here). That reminded this person of what they used to call this dish for fun – Bheegi Bheegi Baath (Crudely translated it means Wet Wet Rice). I couldn’t stop laughing at this comic version of the name and that reminded me of this peppy rain song. We ended up singing the song like fools and laughing like loons. So, here’s that song that stemmed out of a spicy dish. **Wicked Grin**

From the 1974 hit Hindi film Ajnabee ( = Stranger) this song is titled “Bheegi Bheegi Raaton Mein” ( = Oh These Wet And Soaking Nights). Sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. Music composed by R. D. Burman and Lyrics penned by Anand Bakshi
