Surangani, surangani, suranganita maalu genaava

As “Bush Country”—America, not Australia—readies the ground to go into Iran, despite Iraq, SWAROOP DEV forwards a YouTube music video doing the rounds that proves the old dictum that the only thing nations learn from history is that you don’t need to learn from history.

The original Sinhalese baila song, of course, is “Surangani, surangani, suranganita maalu genaava“, which was adapted into Konkani and later into Tamil by Ilayaraja for the Kamal Hassan-starrer Avar Enakke Sontham.
