“Night ki naughty kahani, ye halkat jawani
Meetha ye namkeen paani, ye halkat jawani…”
-A song from the film, Heroine, (2013)

When one of the leading actresses of Bollywood gyrates to a song that explicitly associates youth to sexuality, the association occurs in the minds of the audience not just at the time of viewing the item-song, but also later, as it ossifies in popular perception and gets translated into various articulations in and around the youth of today. These articulations may however not depict the figure of the youngster, and the cultures constructed around them in contemporary times, in an accurate manner. Indeed, when jawani is declared to be “deewani”, it does not emerge merely from an awareness of it being so, it arises out of certain assumptions and myths about youth that have been disseminated through visual and popular cultures over a sustained period of time, across cultures.
