My Hero Number One {Sona Kitna Sona}

This is a typical cheesy Bollywood number from the 90’s. So, people who cannot stand fun and drama, kindly excuse. This movie, ‘Hero No.1’ was released in 1997 starring the reigning jodi{pair} of that time – Govinda and svelte blue-eyed doll Karisma Kapoor. After this movie and song, velvet became the rage. Even I got a nice blue velvet dress for Christmas. But my parents always got me loose clothing. So annoying, I tell you! And it was longer than I wanted. I think they were going for the ‘Sister Mary-in-Velvet’ look while I was picturing myself as Karisma Kapoor in this song. Anyway, a few years later, I tacked the hemline almost 10 inches. I did such a shoddy job in secret. So, my mum happened to notice {duh} that my dress had gotten a whole lot shorter. My reaction was ‘ignorance and surprise’. Say what, Mommy? Has it, really? I don’t think so. It was like this from before itself. Don’t you remember? Yeah, right! If she only took a peek under to see my horrible sewing skills! Anyway on my last visit, I noticed that dress is still in my mum’s house and guess what…. Well, it’s still looser and longer than I would want it. Phew, what were they thinking?

Anyway, this song is not really melodious and it doesn’t have lyrics that will twist and coil your heart and arteries. It’s a fun song. It’s light-hearted. But, it takes me back to a fond place and instantly makes me smile with nostalgia. So, I thought, what the heck? Let’s write a poem inspired by this gem. Keeping the tone of the song in mind, I’m going to write a cheesy poem too. It’s not very typical of me. I’m more into melancholy, romance and thought-provoking stuff with multiple layers and depth. But, let’s just have fun with this one, what say?

My Hero Number OneRuelha

Your heart is golden.
My peace you have stolen.
You are my Bollywood hero,
who hit my heart with Cupid's arrow.
You are my number one.
That place can be taken over by none.

Outside, it seems to be cold.
But the heat in me is uncontrolled.
Listen to my heartbeat.
Let's make love in your backseat.
You are my hero number one.
My dear, isn't this fun?

Come along now, my golden hero.
All these other men are just a zero.
There was never a comparison.
So stop behaving so arrogant.
You are my hero number one.
You're the one I'd rather have won.

Because, your heart is golden.
My peace, you have stolen.
You are my Bollywood hero,
who hit my heart with Cupid's arrow.
You are my number one.
That place can be taken over by none.

You are my my, you are my, you are my, you are my...hero number one.
To your, to your, to your, to your golden heart, I want to run.

You are my my, you are my, you are my, you are my...hero number one.
To your, to your, to your, to your golden heart, I want to run.

You are my my, you are my, you are my, you are my...hero number one.
To your, to your, to your, to your golden heart, I want to run.

        1. I don’t watch too much TV. In fact I don’t need a box in my house. I never turn it on. I have heard of the show though. But I do enjoy movies a lotttt. Certain TV shows from older days like Friends and the Big Bang Theory and That 70s show….those were just irresistible. Now I just quit TV.

  1. HERE’S MY FAVORITE NUMBER ONE HERO…..!

    NEVER REALLY SEEN OR TOUCHED

    She’s never been seen or touched,

    Yet somehow he loves her much…..

    So far away

    She is today,

    A pretty hard woman to clutch!

    separated by thousands of miles,

    He lives for her photographed smiles….

    And occasional verse

    Love seems a curse

    Connected by video files!

    Someday they say they’ll meet

    Anticipation is sweet…..

    Already toning down

    His actions when around

    His friend online that he’s eager to greet!

    And what if husband or boyfriend

    Are with her–he’ll still be a friend….

    with anticipated

    Greetings much deflated

    He’ll ask if she could hug him again and again, and again…!

  2. Haha As Soon As i Heard
    The Word Velvet Can’t
    Touch Human

    Made Stuff

    And Velvet
    Is Among The
    Most Discomfort

    To Touch it’s Weird

    As it Gives Me A Feeling

    Of Discomfort yet

    Not Pain

    Just Worse

    Than Pain

    And Yes i’m Weird

    Yet That’s Beside

    The Point As i Bet

    All The Young

    Men Wanted

    To Be Your

    Hero Just

    To Be

    Closer To Your
    Smile Doubt they
    Even Noticed That

    Baggy Long Blue

    Velvet Dress You

    Made

    Short

    And Tighter

    He he if Not

    Lost in Your Big

    Sensitive Eyes

    How

    All

    Princesses

    True Touch

    Others

    Rue With

    Innocent Warmth

    Even If They Are Hotties

    He

    Wings Still Now

    Above Neck Treat 👸

    And So Deep Within Warm☀️

  3. You have a pleasant and much-telling language table here. The Google translator translated the following sentence:
    ”Sun zara sun kya kehti hai deewane dil ki dhadkan” to Finnish which is my mother language, like this “Kuule, mitä sanot, hullu syke sydämen”.
    I wish you an enriching week 🙂
