Bollywood surely teaches us many things and conditions our lifestyle in many ways. No matter how much we crib and rant about the muck on roads, the traffic jams caused as a part and parcel of the monsoon, Bollywood with its music tracks has been making us fall in love with this season by either associating it with romance or with beautiful single actresses swaying to their hearts' content getting drenched in the showers.
