Hindi Song's Law: The one hindi song which you listen to everywhere- the laundry room, at a hotel, on the radio which really rocks and you want to get it desperately. Then you realize that when you ask your friend to give you the song, one of this will happen- You forget, you can’t sing or he himself has not heard of it.
