As we bring another Lagaan Week to a close, we stay close enough to the theme with the latest installment of the "A Song for each Picture" series. The question, as always: Which Hindi film song(s) does the picture above remind you of?
I hope you've had as much fun reading the Lagaan Week posts as I've had bringing them to you. A big thank you to all who chose to participate with entries of their own! Thanks also to all who commented and read. Sincere thanks to Darshit and Kristine for their encouragement, without which my streak of Lagaan weeks might well have been in jeopardy. Of course, thanks are always in order to all Lagaan Week alumni from prior years. You can view all Lagaan Week entries by clicking here, or the 'Lagaan Exclusives' button which will always grace the sidebar to the right.
In the past, I've served virtual cake (e.g. here and here) to celebrate Lagaan Week. This time around, I have some authentic virtual foods from the state Lagaan was filmed in! Here you go (from the same place -- Vishala Ahmedabad -- I took the picture above). Fit for a king! (I mean for Raja Puran Singh!) Enjoy!
And the condiments too, of course. :)
This June also marks the four-year anniversary of this blog, which I'd conceived and registered in 2005. Thank you to all who read, comment, or follow. Without you, this would be meaningless. Thank you for making it a fun ride. While I've been in and away these past few months, I hope to return a bit more frequently than my 2011 average prior to Lagaan Week would suggest.
PS: If you need some Lagaan-related reading material for the day, please see this Lagaan post, which wasn't part of a 'Lagaan Week', but was (kindly) memorialized by Filmfare Magazine in their March 2009 issue (with Katrina Kaif on the cover -- that's an important bit of detail, you see ;) with coverage of this blog. Below is page 1. Page 2 at this link.
PS again: And just we wrap up, Dolce and Namak has (have, rather) a great post on Lagaan at this link! Check it out!
