    Wow, Raj Kapoor! Now there's a name I haven't thought of in years. I don't know if it's the actual cinematography in the video or just because it's black and white, but it makes me think of Akira...

    Wow, Raj Kapoor! Now there's a name I haven't thought of in years. I don't know if it's the actual cinematography in the video or just because it's black and white, but it makes me think of Akira Kurosawa.

    I wish I had one of those sci-fi, futuristic, instant language translators so I could understand the lyrics here. I'm stuck cheap laughs from YouTube auto-captions talking about English Tommy and hanging ghosts up on me. Man, there's just so much that I'll never know.

      But my heart is still in India
