Today is my birthday and it’s the ideal opportunity to post some images I found from Aap Ki Kasam (1974). This is a screen capture of Sanjeev Kumar and Rajesh Khanna:

When I saw these subtitles on the screen during Aap Ki Kasam I was happy to see the mentioned date since it’s my birthday, yet even more interesting is that they used U instead of you. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen you translated as U before in subtitles. Maybe some young hipster accustomed to texting did the subtitling here. At least they didn’t translate later as L8r. Here’s a little description of the film’s plot, in case you haven’t seen it:

She is unable to convince Rajesh Khanna that she loves only him. He leaves her, not knowing that she is pregnant with his child. Depressed and confused, Rajesh Khanna becomes a homeless wanderer, while Mumtaz remarries to provide a secure home for her child…(wikipedia)

Head over to memsaabstory for a great write up on the film. OK, it’s my birthday, so back to ME! In my Bollywood colored imagination, I am having a whisky party with Ranjeet and Rajesh, just like in the movie, see:

Readers, you’re invited too! Speaking of birthdays, if you saw The Office on TV this week (Episode 5015 | Season 5 ), you’re sure to remember Kelly Kapoor’s (Mindy Kaling) fantastic tirade over people forgetting her birthday. I couldn’t find a precise link to the scene, but if you click HERE and watch from about 4:12-5:15 you can see it.

Thanks for celebrating my birthday with me blogosphere! Thanks to the balloon wallas of India for supplying balloons for my online party:
