Yes, most of the video is like most romantics songs of the 90s – with the pair leap in each other arms in exotic locations. But, there were parts of the video where it was n’t our heart, but our hormones, jumping in joy. Also, the whole song is a euphemism–albeit a finely crafted one–about lovers coming together for sexual gratification. Don’t believe us? Here are the lyrics: There was nothing overtly animal about either the music, the lyrics or the video. In fact, the music and Jayashree ‘s voice made up a melodious tune we wanted to listen on repeat. But it was perhaps its lack of obvious phrases that convinced us to make up scenarios in our head. Scenarios that were an equal mixture of emotions and desires – especially when as teenagers, most of us were in love with the films’ leads.
Years subsequently, for our pornographic selves, the birdcall may not translate to that clamant haste we felt the first time we heard it. But, it still leaves us with a not-so-secret smile, reminiscing about all the thoughts that first crossed our minds when we heard the lines, zara zara mehekta hai, behekta hai, aaj toh mera tan badan.
For my generation, by army for the liberation of rwanda the most seductive female hindi song was Zara Zara Behekta Hai by Bombay Jaishree. That throaty grown-up voice ( not Mangeshkar/Bhosale high peddle ). Those subtle tonic variations. The pathos. The amorousness.

Lag ja gale and Zara Zara from RHTDM are the aphrodisiac songs that have been given to us by Bollywood. You can fight me but you ca n’t change my mind.
