Excerpt
 
Intro
Imagine
you’re sixteen, and living in Brooklyn, being bullied by every kid who’s bigger
than you. Then, BAM! You wake up as a young prince in 1958 India. Suddenly, you
find yourself with riches and power beyond your wildest fantasies. This is how
your journey starts in Bollywood Invasion, which uniquely blends Indian
cultural experience, time-travel and the legendary songs from the Beatles.
Brooklyn
is readily forgotten. Life becomes a constant stream of debauchery, coming to a
stand-still only when you meet “the one.” However, love doesn’t come easy. You
must become a better man and you decide to sing your way into her heart with
the songs based on your memory of vintage Beatles music. One night, you come to
the lawn outside her dormitory building to ask her out, for the last time…
Hey
Raj
“Ankita!
Ankita!”
At
eleven in the night, Ankita woke up to a familiar voice calling her name
outside her dorm. “Not again!” she groaned as she crawled from under the
covers.
“Why
don’t you write a song for me too? I am not that bad!”
Ankita
could hear the banter outside. She walked to the door but could not open it.
Priyanka must be in the building, she thought.
“Ankita!”
Raj
stood on the lawn exactly where he had the last time he was there.
“I
wrote another song, especially for you!”
Ankita
opened the door and saw Raj standing next to Arun with his acoustic guitar.
“Raj, please leave,” she begged.
“Not
until you’ve heard this!” Arun started playing a tune on his guitar and the
entire dorm fell quiet.
“Hey
Raj, don’t make it bad …” https://youtu.be/vxv_6YDOqvs
He
never took his eyes off her the entire time that he sang Hey You, his parody of
Hey Jude. Had she always been this beautiful?
“Hey
Raj, don’t be afraid …”
“Who
the hell is singing at this ungodly hour!” the matron shouted from somewhere.
Raj continued to sing, not flinching at all. Arun, on the other hand, was not
feeling as confident as Raj.
“Raj,
we should go!”
“I
am going to break every single one of your bones, you rascal!”
“Raj,
run! She will catch you!” yelled Ankita.
Raj
smiled. She cared about him.
He
continued to sing.
 “It’s you again!” The matron was on the lawn
now, brandishing a large broom in her hand ominously.
“Raj,
we should go!”
“Keep
playing! Na nanananana!”
He
started running, the matron after him.
“I
am done here,” said Arun and ran away into the darkness.
“Na
nanananana!” Raj continued to sing while running around in circles in the lawn,
the matron closing in. Some of the girls watching the moment unfold started
singing with him. “Na nanananana!”
“Raj,
what are you doing?” yelled Ankita. “Go back!”
“Na
nanananana!” The entire dorm building sang.
“I…love…you…Ankita!”
he shouted as he ran, his breath running out. “Give…me…a…chance!”
“I
am going to break your legs, YOU RASCAL!” The matron flung the broom at Raj.
“Na
nanananana!”
“For
god’s sake, run! I will go out with you! Just once! Go now!”
The
entire dorm building erupted.
“I
love you, Ankita!” said Raj as he broke into a run. “Na nanananana!” he
continued to sing as he disappeared into the darkness.
