An average human life is full of  many instances those are out of scope of explanation of human brain and reasoning. We all know that, the character and personality of a person is defined on the basis of past experiences, the environment of his upbringing and his perception of this world. The personality also includes various likes and dislikes of a human. But sometimes ,certain instances defy this explanation.

I was born to a middle class family. Being second kid, in my family I had several benefits. Enjoying lot of toys of my elder sister was one of it.

But, as with everyone else, I was different. I have a vague memory of my childhood.  But I clearly remember one thing. In fact, when I talk about it with my parents, I always tend to get a smile.

I don’t know , how it happened but when I was around 2-2.5 years old, I had this habit ,I used to sleep only if I had heard to a Bollywood song – “Daak Baabu aaya , Daak Babu aaya.. gali gali khat baate mera khat na laaya”. It happened when my parents bought a cassette of movie songs (I believe it was a collection) and when this song used to play , I tend to fall asleep. I used to cry if any other song was playing and I used to stop crying when this song used to play. I could barely sleep or walk at that time  , I don’t know what was the connection of this song, but I still remember few lines of the song.

Upon a bit of search , I found out that the movie was released in year 1990. I was almost 2.5 years of age at that time and I continued to listen to that song, till I was 7-8 years old.I used to fell asleep, listening to that song. Even my parents bought a special tape for me . A cassette that had only song, repeated till end and that used to play when I was in the room.
