    This theme of the ideal qualities of the potential bride or groom is very dear to celluloid poets too, and polularised in some good Hindi film songs. Some come readily to mind.

    1. *kismat ki baat hai, malik ke haath hai,* *kismat ki baat, malik ke haath, jeevan ke saath hai—shaadi.* *(lyricist Rajinder Krishan, MD.Dhaniram/R.Sudarshanam, singer Kishore Kumar.)*

    *2.Zaroorat hai, zaroorat hai,, zaroorat hai* *Ek shrimati ki, kalavati ki, Seva karen jo pathi ki…*

    *(Rajinder Krishan, Madan Mohan, Kishore Kumar )*

    *3. Kisi nargisi nazar ko dil denge hum,* *kali zulf ke saaye mein dum lenge hum*

    *(Hasrat Jaipuri, Shankar Jaikishan, Mukesh)*

    *Of these, the first song was sung in Tamil by Chandrababu in the film ‘Penn’.Unfortunately, neither singer had a good, settled married life!*

    *In a Tamil film, there was a hilarious song sung by S.C.Krishnan for K.A.Thangavelu, which goes something like” Originality, osanda quality, onnaam number beauty, Paatti”, where he is describing his ideal girl to his grand mother!*

    * In films like Albela, Miss Mary (Tamil Missiamma), there were some delightful songs on the theme of ideal boy/girl.*

    *There were also some light-hearted songs warning people not to fall into the trap of marriage!*

    *1. Hum tum jisse kehte hain shadi* *You know hain pura barbadi* *Jo tum lalchaoge, peeche pachtavoge* * Mind you,Jaayegi aazaadi*

    *(Kaifi Azmi, S.D.Burman, Mohammad Rafi)*

    *2. Kuwe mein kood ke mar jana,* *Yaro tum shadi mat karna* *(You may even jump into a well,but do not marry!)*

    *(Shailendra, Salil Chaudhury, Kishore Kumar)*

    *This is an engaging subject!*
