For Valentine's Day - Something Different

Here, in honor of Valentine's Day, is one of my all-time favorite videos - it's from an Indian movie called Dil Se, and the song is called Chaiyya Chaiyya.  It's energizing, beautiful, romantic and full of amazing song and dance, all done on the top of a moving train passing through gorgeous scenery - no CG effects or blue screens here.  To quote the song:  "He who walks in the shadow of love will have paradise beneath his feet."  It's a fairly famous video worldwide, and it's easy to see why.

Any time I'm feeling tired, or discouraged, one viewing of this video will perk me right up and restore my cheerfulness and delight in the world - see if it does the same for you:

A Happy Valentine's Day to you all!

  7. Loved it! This past summer, my family and I were in Greece and watched a Bollywood movie, with this same main actor, not translated and in Greek subtitles and it was STILL so enjoyable and captivating! :)
