"The now iconic scream of 'tarikh-par-tarikh, tarikh-par-tarikh' by Sunny Deol was Bollywood's counterpart to Shakespeare: two different expressional forms -- the one loud and melodramatic, the other brooding and self-reflective -- but both nevertheless united in forcefully articulating the frustrations of delayed and-hence-denied justice," it said.

This famous dialogue appeared in Bollywood blockbuster 'Damini'. Another well-known song from Manoj Kumar starer -- Upkaar -- 'Mere desh ki dharti sona ugle ugle heerey moti' (My country's soil where crops grow like gold, diamonds, and pearls), figured in the climate change and agriculture chapter of the survey.
