gol gappay wala

I remember writing something here on the ultimate delicious junk food found left, right on every street in Pakistan The gol gappay! YUM. however,instead of eating them i m humming this old, classic song that goes like 'gol gappy wala aya gol gappay wala, gol gappay laya'...and something like that. its a great fun song from an old Pakistani movie, starring Allaudin with song sung by Ahmed Rushdi. And luckily i found it on this something similar to youtube site. www.vidpk.com is a decent website with an impressive number of movies, dramas and songs...all Pakistan Maal easily available here. :D :D :D
heres the link to the song, listen to it while i hum away to the tune :p

I have had gol gappay only three times in my life and all three times, I lost my voice for the next 2 days! :D

I have never learned to appreciate gol gappay. Excuse me if I haven't managed to turn into a true Lahori in these 8 years :)

I absolutely love gol gappay and would secretly buy them from a street vendor in the afternoon with my cousins when the elders, who think that every tasty street food is hazardous to health, are sleeping.

Here in the UAE, I get to eat gol gappay at malls, which isn't quite as exciting, lekin chaleyga :)

ehehe ya i know, the gappas in dubai are given in a sophisticated and hygienic way that kinda cuts out the desi element
