“Dog! I Shall Drink Your Blood!” – Hauz Khas Kitsch!

No, I haven’t turned into a canine hunting vampire overnight!

The title is the literal translation of a quintessential Bollywood quote from a 1973 Hindi flick, that has become synonymous with its aging, macho, once dashing, still endearing star. ‘Dog’ in this instance refers to the vile villain, who is about to have the %#&* beaten out of him, in true Bollywood ‘dishum dishum’ style 🙂

You have to admit this is a brilliant illustration.

T shirt in Hauz Khas

No we didn’t buy that T shirt.

Here is more kitsch from Hauz Khas, a chic bohemian ‘village’ in South Delhi, that is sadly, fast degenerating into an overcrowded suburb. Shall reserve photos of the beautiful archaeological complex and the reservoir that it derives its name from, for another day.

Wishing you all much joy, for Christmas and the coming year!

  1. Interesting indeed. I like the t-shirt. Cute! 🙂

    That’s a pretty old quote. Has stood the test of time.

  2. As always you have provided another colorful post .. and this time around a yellow T-shirt .. I would have bought that T-shirt myself, just for fun … yellow isn’t really my color – but I could have wore it while cleaning. Love it. Well spotted. Like the shopping totes too. Thanks for bring color into my grey Friday.

  3. Great T-shirt. Once a chic place gets discovered, then it totally loses it’s original intimacy. Christmas peace and joy to you and your family, Madhu. 🙂

  4. I think it could be quite dangerous to wear that T-shirt. 🙂 Love the kitsch. So colourful and very artistic. I want to know what that gold coloured thing is to the left of the T-shirt. It looks like a chicken with no head, just an empty neck. 😀

  5. Another treasure chest of photos. I used to live just around the corner from Bollywood in Byculla, Mumbai for a couple of years. Mine was the era Hati Mera Sati and Ali Baba Aur Chalis Chor. lol
