It indeed is one of the paradoxes that whenever a song featuring the word "seeti" connoting whistling in Hindi forms a part of the lyrics, it immediately catches the imagination of the public and becomes instant hit. "Hothon ko kar ke gol, seeti baja ke bol", from 3 IDIOTS is another such addition to the collection. Its popularity can be gauged by the sheer number of articles that are proliferating in the cyber world with the lyrics of the song as the title.
The popularity of the songs, more so were the word "seeti" forms a part of the lyrics could apparently be owing to the fact that most of the Indian pubic may have the urge to blow a whistle but owing to the norms of the society, or the inability to blow it are not in a position to do so. So whenever songs of these kinds make a debut they instantly become super hit. 3 IDIOTS provides an opportunity to go down the memory lane and chronicle such songs. The list includes songs where the word "seeti" may form a part of the lyrics, or a part of the background music.
