Aashiqui

In 1991, the film Aashiqui was a big hit. All roads were filled with posters of this movie depicting Rahul Roy and Anu Agarwal behind a coat(!). The music was a big hit and cassette sales (no CDs and no online downloads in those days u see) broke previous records. We too got a cassette and I remember hearing the songs day in and out. So much that one day the poor cassette couldn’t take it any longer and I heard a GRRRR sound while a song was playing. The tape had got cut. So the cassette was no longer usable. Mom had already predicted this day long back looking at the way the poor cassette was being played (read tortured). Years later, I downloaded the songs from the Internet and listen to them often. Don’t know this time what’s going to happen (!), have to ask mom her prediction this time.
