Village innocence sucks!

Remember those 1970s movies that typically dealt with a village dope coming to the city, getting cheated and finally getting back at them and in the process get the modern intelligent scantily-clad city girl too? They all suck!

I have a message for all such dimwits - if you are dumb enough to flash the I am a simple village schmuck, and am easily deceived air around you, you deserve to get cheated.

Aye dil hai mushkil jeena yahan
Zara hat ke zara bach ke, yeh hai Bombay meri jaan

Kahin building kahin traame, kahin motor kahin mill
Milta hai yahan sab kuchh ik milta nahin dil
Insaan ka nahin kahin naam-o-nishaan

Beghar ko aawara yahan kehte has has
Khud kaate gale sabke kahe isko business
Ik cheez ke hain kai naam yahan

And if you think that song was appropriate, you should consider moving to Bihar.

Have never been able to figure out why "innocence", naivete, rustic behaviour and poverty are all glorified.
