I recently heard J-Lo's latest single featuring Pitbull called "On the Floor" and something told me that I had heard the theme music somewhere.... So, after racking my brain for some time, I realized that the song's interlude music piece is similar to the theme music of the song "Sochna Kya Jo bhi Hoga.." from Ghayal - a 1990 Hindi movie featuring Sunny Deol.
Since this interesting piece of news came July 1, 2011, about the discovery of billions of rupees worth of treasure unearthed in a temple in Kerala, I have been wondering what will be the fate of this money. Will it be squandered or put in safe hands and made good use of. While the inspectors are still evaluating the total worth of the treasure, I am going to keep a diary of the events to see how far and where this trail of gold reaches.
