Ekta Mein Shakti

This is the first time I am seeing this in color. Yeah, thats right. I believe I was 5 when this cartoon/clip/animated movie used to play on the good old Doordarshan just before the evening news at 8:30. My sister and I remembered the words by heart, used to sing along, maybe even act it out. I surprisingly still remember most of the words and the act.

Sheer brilliance on the part of the producers for using children and comics and innocence to teach a very important fact of life, especially true in a multi-cultural place like India - Unity in Diversity (Ekta Mein Shakti). I'm gonna dig up some more clips from that era and put'em here. Ahh....those wonderful days.
