Let’s talk in Punjabi! Aaho!

70 MM, Bollywood, Nostalgia, Trumpet Lead

Doodh, dahi, malai, makhan aur ghee!

Food, Indian Belly

“Now be a good boy/girl and finish your glass of milk” is a statement most Indian kids are familiar with.

Such is the national obsession with “doodh” that the milk mooch (moustache) is worn with a lot of pride.
