A rose by any other name would smell as sweet
Yeh tau hai farmaan Shakespeare ka, woh jin ki ek duniya madah hai aur gun gati hai.
Meri tau koi haisiyat nahin ke main sheikh sahab ka kaha jhutlaoon, magar agar jaan ki amaan paoon tau would venture to say ke sahab apni kahiye. Aap ko nahin parta hoga magar hamein tau bohot farq parta hai …
You all must be wondering what I am going on about … magar yeh dekhen zara aap khud check kare lein
Naseebon Jali Nargis?
Ab aap khud hi bataein … what kinds of names are these? Do any of these entice you to tune in? Are you intrigued to know ke why Nargis is called naseebon jali? Ya phir Mehrunnisa bechari kyon hai??
Ab Sheikh sahab kehtey hain names don’t make a difference but I think they do. What do you say? Yes? No?
Chalein, jab tak aap sochein let’s put you all to work…
A) How about a listing of some of our favourite drama names and say why they are memorable. Was it because there was something poetic about title, or the name was particularly apt for the story, or some other reason. For me, for instance, Dhoop Kinare is one the best names ever for a drama serial. I just love the thought and images it evokes.
B) And since we are talking about names and why I (we?) think they are important, how about we name a couple of serials that could have done with a different name. For me these names below were such a turnoff ke I refused to go anywhere near them.
C) And finally, because these are two iconic serials we all know of and about, whether we watched them or not, how about you come up with new names for them. Dekhtey hain if a rose is truly a rose …
