Spiderman and Bengali-Bangaal rather

surprising how as time passes, we come to love our mothertongues more, especially when we are awaay from homw. a stupid rhyme, made in jest by a vella person, meaningless summary of the movie, liked by me enough (especially in my present mood of not wanting to work) to post.
so, ladies and gentlemen, let the drums roll and the violins play...let the masked hero make a comeback...but in the essentially ethnic tones of Bangaal (not bengali - it was not bad enough in bengali)!
ting ting ting ting...
