Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai is among the best TV shows that aired on Indian Television. Naughty Indravadan, sophisticated Maya, middle class Monisha, momma’s boy Roshesh and ideal man Sahil – all made the series a memorable one with viewers wanting more. JD Majethia, producer of the show, told fans on Twitter that there is good news. And there indeed is some good news: Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai is coming back after a decade as a web-only series, and boy can’t we be more excited!
Roshesh’s poems were an integral part of the show. They made us squirm and laugh in equal measure, making Roshesh one of the most loved characters. While we can’t wait for the new episodes to hit the internet, here are some of Roshesh’s best poems:
The one on Momaa’s purse
Momma ka purse, jaise hospital ki pyaari koi nurse,
Purse mein rakha tissue paper karta hai paseene ka ilaaj,
Aur lipstick ho jaise, bhooke hotho ka anaj,
Momma ke purse ka hai makhmali sa sparsh,
Momma ka purse, momma ka purse.
The one on jelly
Lagul lagul lagul lagul,
Laal laal lagul lagul jelly,
Jelly ke cabre dancer jaise shareer mein chhupi hai,
Anjaani ankahee paheli.
Jelly hai moma ka mann,
Narm mulayam meetha,
Pasand hai ise har koi,
Sangeeta Rita Mita Aneeta.
Jelly giri zameen par,
To awaaz aayi plup plup!
Baccha usme haath maare,
To sunai deti hai thup thup!
Jelly par kabhi fungus na lage,
Uska swaad kabhi bhankas na lage,
Agar bachani hai hume hamari country,
To jelly ko banana hoga hamara Pradhan Mantri!
The one on Humpty Dumpty and gaddi
Humpty dumpty sat on the ‘gaddi’,
Gadi pe betha tabhi aa gayi dadi,
Dadi ne kaha aaja mere paas,
Kyuki gadi pe bethna is just so middle class.
The one where Momma wins
Hawa mein hain khushi ki aroma,
Jeet gayi momma, jeet gayi momma,
Say hi to happiness and tata to trauma,
Jeet gayi momma, jeet gayi momma.
The one on Popat Kaka
Popat Kaka ki atma ka popat,
Ud gaya ud gaya ud gaya rey,
Shristey k sajjan haath se popat,
Jud gaya jud gaya jud gaya rey.
The one on…hmm…
Khatar khun khatar khun khatar khun,
Sun mere dil ki dhun,
Tere pyaar ki oiling mil gayi isey,
Toh khatar khun ka ho jaayega gun gun.
The one on Sahil’s engagement
In the living room of Sarabhai’s,
Hogi Saahil Bhai ki sagaai,
Priya Bhabhi phuli na samaai,
Yeah Yeah Yeah!
The one on Monisha Bhabhi
Einstein sa dimaag, stupid si biwi,
Nayi lambi gaadi, toota purana tv,
Yeh mera Sahil bhai,
Monisha bhabhi hai hai!
The one on the three-legged dog
Yeh hai teen pair wall kutta,
Isko kabhi bhagaana nahi padta,
Susu karte waqt usse uthaana nahi padta,
Yeh hain teen pair wala kutta!
The one on Momma’s birthday
Momma ka birthday karein celebrate,
Age hai 53 but you look 28,
Monisha bhabhi ne banaaya hai khaana,
Jisse hum sab karte hate hate!
These ‘kavitayein’ sound better if you imagine them being said by Roshesh himself. Till the new episodes hit the web, enjoy the poems and the nostalgia.
