Great minds think alike

Long long ago ,I had written a song based on the tune of "preetse antha.." from the kannada film "excuse me".It was about a mosquito and my ways of combating it.I had even shared it with many of my friends (one such occasion was when maddy-my college mate had thrown a party on his terrace).Believe me ,I had personally concieved that lyrics and it was not borrowed by anyone else.

Then some months later I got a sms from my cousin in karwar which contained the lines of the same song I had written.It did not exactly have the same words but the meaning was the same and it matched 90% to what I had written.I was surprised at this incident and thought may be it had spread from my friends as an SMS and thus after a long chain my cousin might have got it.I was happy that ppl liked it so much to take the trouble to sms it.And I forgot it as time went by.
But suddenly yesterday,while listening to radio, I heard the same song sung by some listener.This made me realise I am the only one to get that idea.Of course we all know that "GREAT MINDS THINK ALIKE" .

So barring straight remakes and tune-smugglers like annu malik and pritam, I now believe there is a Strong chance of 2 persons getting the same idea,same tune or the same story at different parts of the world.

And to give meaning to this ,I have a random theory and for simplicity and patenting lets name it "Nelli's idea wave theory" .I like to believe this thought was original but something tells me I hv read abt it somewhere ).

The theory is simple : All ideas we get or the thoughts we think are actually idea waves travelling all around.Just like the TV/radio stations emit the signals ,they are spread everywhere at different strengths.And similar to the way of how TV/radio sets catch the waves, our minds also catch some of the idea waves.This is what I call "Idea waves".
and then similar to two tv/radio sets picking up same signal ,two ppl may catch the same idea wave ( at different strengths) and then interpret them according to them.The probability may be less but not impossible.This explains how 2-3 ppl wrote the same lines..
they simply lifted my lyrics.......

Let me clarify something, even though the lines I wrote for the song were new,the concept of spoofing songs for fun is not new.Ex: Devang patel has altered many of the songs to make his living ( ) :-)
The song is reproduced below.Plz tell me if U hv heard it /read it before..It seems that this idea wave is a little bit stronger :-) .....

ರಾತ್ರಿ ಪೂರ ನನ್ನ ಕಚ್ಚಿ ರಕ್ತ ಹೀರ್ದೊವ್ರ್ಯಾರೋ
ನನ್ನೇ ಕಚ್ಚು ಅಂಥ ನಿಂಗೆ ಹೇಳಿ ಕೊಟ್ಟವರ್ಯಾರೋ
ಇದೇನಾ ನಿನ್ನ ಆತ
ಇದೇನಾ ಸೊಳ್ಳೆ ಕಾಟ
ಅದು ಎಲ್ಲಿ ಅಂಥ ನಾನು ನಿನ್ನ ಹುಡುಕಿ ಕೊಲ್ಲಲಿ

ಮೊನ್ನೆ ನೀನು kacchide
ನಿನ್ನೆ ನೀನು ಕಚ್ಚಿದೆ
ಇಂದು ನೀನು kachchade

tortoise coil ಹಚ್ಚಿದೆ
mortien mat ನು ಉರಿಸಿದೆ
ಇನ್ನು ಏನು ಹಚ್ಚಲಿ ನೀ ಹೇಳು

ನಿನ್ನೆ ನಾನು ಮಲಗಿ ಇದ್ದೆ ಸೊಳ್ಳೆ ಪರದೆಯ ಕೆಳಗೆ
ಅದು ಹೇಗೆ ಬಂದು ಕಚ್ಚಿದೆ ನೀನು ಒಳಗೆ

ರಾತ್ರಿ ಪೂರ ನನ್ನ ಕಚ್ಚಿ ರಕ್ತ ಹೀರ್ದೊವ್ರ್ಯಾರೋ
ನನ್ನೇ ಕಚ್ಚು ಅಂಥ ನಿಂಗೆ ಹೇಳಿ ಕೊಟ್ಟವರ್ಯಾರೋ
ಇದೇನಾ ನಿನ್ನ ಆತ
ಇದೇನಾ ಸೊಳ್ಳೆ ಕಾಟ

ಅದು ಎಲ್ಲಿ ಅಂಥ ನಾನು ನಿನ್ನ ಹುಡುಕಲಿ

Hey ...suddenly I know from where I got this idea of idea seems like I borrowed this from the "vibration theory" of North-south poles + temples ಗರ್ಭಗುಡಿ + temple bells vibration + wind chimes etc all mixed of course !!!
