17 Food-Songs that Tell the Story of Your Life

Food is our raison d'être. It’s everywhere and in everything. No occasion is complete without a spread of delicious and scrumptious dishes. Not even the regular, song-dance routine (yes, they're occasions) of our very own Bollywood.

In fact, Bollywood has played a great role in highlighting the importance of food in various situations that we encounter in life - education, friendship, career, marriage, and romance. Especially romance. There's a food that goes with the theme and there’s a song about it.
