Theek Ho Jayega

My cable operator always has a sense of the occasion
He showed Black Friday on the night the Babri Masjid verdict came out
He is showing Salaam Bombay right now
The dejected protagonist is riding the police bus on a rainy night
Has a drunk loafer for company
The latter playfully runs his hands through the fomer's hair
Tells him "Theek ho jayega,
Ek din apne Hindustan mein sab theek ho jayega"
Hehe, Optimism.
Realm of the drunkard, the politician, the fool.
