Since it seems to be a season of kids in ads at Cutting the Chai. Here’s another classic.
[Kid at a railway station.]
Bablu: Ramu Kaka!
Ramu Kaka: Aare Bablu yahan kya kar rahe ho? (Bablu! What are you doing here?)
Bablu: Sab gussa karte hain. Main ghar chor ke ja raha hoon. (Everyone gets angry with me. So I’m leaving home)
Ramu Kaka: Magar ghar mein to Mummy ne garma garam jalebiyan banayee hain! (But at home, Mummy has prepared hot jalebis!)
Ramu Kaka: Hm
[Ramu Kaka takes Bablu home on his bicycle.]
Mummy: To kya tai kiya aapne? (So, what have you decided?) Hm?
Bablu: Mmmm… Jana to hain… magar.. (Have to go, but…)
Dad: Haan magar bees pachis saal baad (But after 20, 25 years)
VO: Vishudha Dhara. Ankokha asar. Dhara (Pure Dhara. Unique effect)
Enough of reading. Now to the real stuff (the video).
Pity, I never ran away from home (though did a lot of searching for people who did. Hope you idiots are reading this). Once I thought of it, but the darkness outside and the stories of the lurking snakes, foxes and ghosts put cold water over all my plans. Anyway, it’s too late now.
