The picture post of the lovely lady dressed in White…

This is what I got with the picture

– For young men, it’s a picture of a lady with a nice arse but only the most observant will notice that she is crossing a street.

– The really observant will notice that she is wearing a thong.

– For older men, she appears to be a respectable woman – with a nice butt on her way to work.

– Wiser men will ponder the presence of mind of the photographer to take the shot in the face of such beauty and be grateful that they shared it with humanity.

– For half of the women, this is an ordinary woman who should not have left home dressed that way.

– The other half will think and wonder where she bought that blouse.

-Older women will imagine the misery that the woman’s BUTT will cause by the time she reaches 50.

– But only children, the extremely intelligent and the celibate will notice that the taxi is being driven by a dog.

(SO you want to go back and check your replies he he he he he )  🙂

Leave you with a Song..  doing a Musical Monday after Ages 🙂

A golden Punjabi by none other but the best Shiv Kumar Batalvi.. Hope you all like it ..  I would request all those who don’t understand panjabi to do a search and find the meaning .. I can assure it is worth the hassle doing it.. One of India’s best poets although as usual when he was alive not many knew of him, sung by another of India’s best the King of Ghazals Late Jagjit singh..

I can put the lyrics but I can’t do justice to the words so don’t know how to do any translation .. If anyone out there knows Punjabi well then Please do so for all of us to enjoy it better ..

I have got a translation hope it helps … but please anyone else out there who can do more justice Please do so …

Maye Ni Maye, Main Ek Shikra Yaar Banaya,mother hey mother I befriended a hawk   (shikra =Hawk)

ohde Sir De Kalgi, Te pairi Jhanjhar, te O Chog Chuginda Aaya,  plume on his head, n bells on his feet, he came pecking 4 grain  (kalgi=plume, Chog=grain , chuginda = pecking)

Ek ohde Roop Dee Dhup Teekheri, te Dooja Mehka Da Tirhaya,  one his beauty was as sharp as sun  and 2nd  was thirsty fragrance

Teeja ohda Rang Gulabi, ho Kise Gori Maa Da Jaya,  3rd his color was the color of rose , He was born from a fair mother

Ishqe Da Ek Palang Nawari, ve Assan Channania vich daya, Tann Di Chaaddar Ho Gayi Maili, Os Pair Ja Palgi Paya,  i laid a bed of love , in the moonlight, my body sheet was stained the instant he laid his foot on my bed!

Ni ohde chet di aathan, ate zulfee saavan chaaya ,hothaa de vich kahte da koi dihoon chadne te aaya  his eyes were an evenning in spring, his hair a dark cloud, his lips, a rising autumn dawn

Dukkhan mere Naina De Koye, Te vich Harh Hanjua Da Aaya, Sari Raat gayi vich socha, Us A Ki zulm Kamaaya,   corners of my eyes hurt and a flood of tears engulfed me , all night went thinking what he did this to me 

Bolla de vich paun pure di ni o koilaan da hamsaaya ,chitte dand jyon dhaano bagla tori maar udaaya  his words had eastern breeze blowing like the sound of a nightingale , his smile was the whiteness of a crane in the rice field , taking flight at the clap of a hand

Subha Savere Laini Vattna, ve Assa Mal Mal os Navaya, Dehi de vicho Niklan Chin gaa, te saada Haath Gaya kumlaya,   early in the morning, with vattna (a paste used to cleansing skin), I scrubbed n bathed my body but embers kept bursting out and my hands flagged

Choori Kuttta Ta O Khanda Naahi, ve Assa Dil Da Maas Khwaya, Ek Udaari Aisi Maari, O Mud Vatnee Na Aaya,  prepared choori but he doesnt eat ,I gave him the flesh of my heart , he took such a takeoff, never came back home

maaye ni…ni mai ik shikra yaar banaya

Aven duniya dewe duhai
Jhoota paundi SHOR
Te Apne dil ton puch ke VEKHO
ki kaun nahin hai CHOR
                             

                               World is going on about useless things All this noise is just a LIE
                               Ask your own heart Who is NOT a  Thief

 
te ki main jhoot boliya
te ki main kufur toliya
te ki main Zehar Kholiya

                                Do I lie, do I poison

Oye Haq dooje da maar maar ke
Bante Log ameer
Main ihnu kehenda CHORI
Duniya kehendi Taqdeer 

                               Stealing the others RIGHT
                               People Get Rich
                               I say its Robbery
                               World proclaims it to be Destiny

te ki main jhooht boliya
te ki main Zehar Kholiya

vekhe Pandit Gyani Dhyaani
daya dharam de bande
ram naam japed
te khande Gaushaalla de CHANDE

                                Have seen all the pundits , Gyani’s  and all religious People
                               They take RAM’s Name all the time but eat the Funds from charity

te ki main jhooht boliya
te ki main kufur toliya
te ki main Zehar Kholiya

SACHE faansi Chadde Vekhe
Jhootha mauj  udave
kehende RAB di MAYA
Main kehenda Anaye

                                The righteous are hanged Liars have FUN
                               People say it’s all God’s doing I say it’s WRONG DOING

te ki main jhooht boliya
te ki main kufur toliya
te ki main Zehar Kholiya

                       (Do I lie, do I poison )

(This is the original song… )

But if you have time Listen to this Young Boy Please

Ik baba nanak si bai jihne turke duniya gaah ti
Ik baba nanak si bai jihne turke duniya gaah ti
Ik ajj kal babey ne batti lal gaddi te la ti
Ik baba nanak si bai jihne turke duniya gaa ti

                       Guru Baba Nanak walked and went all over the world walking
                      But the modern Babas can’t go anywhere without their car,
                      Have a RED LIGHT atop their cars

Kaar seva de naate mangde rasad nota di thaili
Main sunia babey ne ajj kal Gadi Kimti lai li

                      In the name of KAR seva they want bundles of notes
                      Have heard that Modern baba has bought a Brand new Expensive car

Ihna unpad bibiyan ne
Bande gal rab di takhti paati

                     These uneducated Women have put, a slate of GOD around there neck

Ik ajj kal babey ne batti lal gaddi te la ti
Ik baba nanak si jeenay bai tur ke duniya gaa ti

Chothi ji gal utte ho jaande dangey lagdiyan aggan
Koi banda safe nahi –  hai raah-jandian lathan pagan

                      On a small little thing there are riots and fires are lit
                      No one is safe, Walking by people get there turbans taken off

eh EGO dharaman di
kise di baj ke tur je Gaati
                      This Ego of Religion doesn’t care whose Neck they chop off

Ik ajj kal babey ne batti lal gaddi te la ti
Ik baba nanak si bai Jihne jeenay tur ke duniya gaa ti

Kanu tappey stagean te rakh ke baja tu vi Gaa lai
Tere baag pal gaya hai ja center vich Kuli pa lai

                        Why are you jumping on stages, jsut keep a harmonium and start singing
                       Your lands will be taken care of go and make a house in Centre (Delhi)

Reelan hun vikan giyan nahin
Shuru kar Kheti gayak saathi

                       Your cassettes and Cds no one is going to buy Start mowing the land my singer friends

(This Last pragraph is there in some videos)

Lai lai do char dholkiyan panj satt chimte rakh naale
Bibian te VIP ghumange chito peher duale
                       Get 2 -3 drummers , or one’s who know how to play a instrument
                       Women and Ministers and VIPs will roam around on all hours of the day

Asin bade Mahan haan
Kise ne Jhoothi phook chukaati

                       I am very Big and Renowned, important someone has given them a False impression

Ik baba nanak si bai jihne turke duniya gaa ti
Ik ajj kal babey ne batti lal gaddi te la ti
Ik baba nanak si bai jihne turke duniya gaa ti

WarmSunshine  suggested this song to me .. thanks to her I found this lovely song .. hope you all like it tooo ..

I know they say you cant go home again.
I just had to come back one last time.
Ma?am I know you don’t know me from Adam.
But these handprints on the front steps are mine.
And up those stairs, in that little back bedroom
is where I did my homework and I learned to play guitar.
And I bet you didn?t know under that live oak
my favorite dog is buried in the yard.

I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
this brokenness inside me might start healing.
Out here its like i’m someone else,
I thought that maybe I could find myself
if I could just come in I swear i’ll leave.
Won?t take nothing but a memory
from the house that built me.

Mama cut out pictures of houses for years.
From ?Better Homes and Garden? magazines.
Plans were drawn, concrete poured,
and nail by nail and board by board
Daddy gave life to mama?s dream.

I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
this brokenness inside me might start healing.
Out here its like i’m someone else,
I thought that maybe I could find myself.
If I could just come in I swear i’ll leave.
Won?t take nothing but a memory
from the house that built me.

You leave home, you move on and you do the best you can.
I got lost in this whole world and forgot who I am.

I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
this brokenness inside me might start healing.
Out here its like i’m someone else,
I thought that maybe I could find myself.
If I could walk around I swear i’ll leave.
Won?t take nothing but a memory
from the house that built me.

And Leave you all with these lovely pictures of My home .. Back home in India Have a Great Week 🙂

Charkha mera rangla
Vich charkhe de mekhan
Ve main tainu yaar karaan
Jad charkhe val vekhaan   
Charkhey de sheeshiyaan which  
Disey tera MUKH vey

             (Charkha is decorated with small mirrors in which i can see you face)

Vekh vekh mitdi na  akhiyaan di bhukh vey
              (But the eyes dont get enough of you looking at it)

Seene which ne Radakdiyaan eh charkhe diyaan mekhaan
              (My heard hurts with the nails )

Ve main tainu yaar karaan
Jad charkhe val vekhaan
              (I remember you , each time is see the charkha)

Din raat teriyan raahaan val ..maraan chaakhi vey
              (I look upon the way you gonna come day and night)

Teray bin asaan ki Manauni vaisakhi ve
               (Cant celebrate Vaishakhi without you) 

Sau sau peer Manavaan
Naaley thaan thaan mathey tekaan
                (I go to hundreds of God’s men, and put my head for the blessings)

Ve main tainu yaar karaan
Jad charkhe val vekhaan

Ajaa mahin Aaja Tun Vi Kar kay Khaitan
                (Come back oh beloved after you have done your earning)

Jattian ne Sootan nu lavaan layiaan phatiyaan
                 (girls have put on lovely suits nicely decorated)

Kyun sooli te tangiya mainu meryaan lekhaan
                 (Why am i hanging by the noose, by my luck)

Ve main tainu yaar karaan
Jad charkhe val vekhaan
