Posts Tagged ‘Musical Monday’

I am not a big fan of Bollywood movies because I feel that many of the films made are a rip off from Hollywood or other movies.

But I just happened to watch UDTA Punjab , I could not understand what the whole controversy was , why it was being asked to be banned, maybe it is true when people say TRUTH hurts.. Punjab is in such dire straits , god knows how the most prosperous state at one time in the country will regain the lost glory.

One of the songs in that movie is a beautiful song, written by the famous punjabi poet , Shiv kumar batalvi. As is with many writers they become well-known only when they are no more, Shiv kumar also was one, he had  lots of ups and downs, Wikipedia has all the information about the poet.

I don’t like when the new era musician and composers try to give their own mark to old classicals. BUT THIS one is a must listen .. what beautiful lyrics by the maestro. Wish the Full song was Sung, rather than a few lines..

Ik kuddi jida naa Mohabbat,
Gum hai Gum hai Gum haiIk kuddi jida naa Mohabbat,
Gum hai Gum hai Gum hai
A girl named love
Is lost, is lost, is lost
Soorat usdi  pariyaan vargi

Seerat di o Mariam lagdi

An angel by face like

MARY by virtue

 Hasdi hai taan phul jhaddade ne

Turdi hai taa gazal hai lagdi.

Flowers blossom when she laughs

Seems a poem when she walks

Lamm-salammi, saru de kad di

Umar aje hai marke agg di,

Par naina di gal samajhdi

 Tall like cypress

Age barely alight

Yet she understands the language of a glance

Saad muraadi, Sohni phabbat
Gum hai Gum hai Gum Hai
Simple,  Beautiful
she is Lost

 

 

 

After a long long time there has been a punjabi song that has actually touched my heart because otherwise the punjabi singers today in punjab have actually brought only disrepute to the beautiful language .. But that is for another post ..

This Song is also a dedication to Someone Out there in the wide open world, to the one Whom I loved and Lost, she was and IS Saad Muraadi, Sohni but is definitely LOST.. .. For you

Now 7 random things about me, Well I am sure everyone knows everything about me by now.

1. Along with the job that I do which everyone knows by now 🙂  I am a software programmer ,  this was not what I wanted to be, it came as a fluke to me … so the point which i am making that others don’t know is that it was a fluke, my first choice always was Indian army, but for some reason they did not want me .. I came to UK and got into the forces, how weird is this, not good for own country but good enough everywhere else.

2. I get angry very fast. I use to be a calm but life and experiences have made me what I am now.

3. I have survived a couple of near death episodes, So I thank god and my wellwishers for that.

4. I am very outgoing, I love outdoors dont get much time these days.

5.  I won a gold in All India roller skating competitions, And I was Second in Skeet Shooting competition, Also had a few awards in dramatics… (not many people know this.. This tag is going to get a lot of my mates really angry with me ) . I am very competetive and hate loosing …

6. My first job in India was as a teacher, and in UK was that of a security guard.

7. I was a bad boy in college so much so that my dad actually threw me out of the house :O…

There you go DONE.

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

the above link is failing  try this

Give a little time for the child within you,
don’t be afraid to be young and free.
Undo the locks and throw away the keys
and take off your shoes and socks, and run you.
La, la, la…

Run through the meadow and scare up the milking cows
Run down the beach kicking clouds of sand
Walk a windy weather day, feel your face blow away
Stop and listen: Love you.

Roll like a circus clown, put away your circus frown
Ride on a roller coaster upside down
Waltzing Matilda, Carey loves a kinkatchoo
Joey catch a kangaroo, hug you.

Dandylion, milkweed, silky on a sunny sky
Reach out and hitch a ride and float on by
Balloons down below catching colors of the rainbow
red, blue and yellow-green: I love you.

Bicycles, tricycles, ice cream candy
Lollypops, popsicles, licorice sticks
Solomon Grundy, Raggedy Andy
Tweedledum and Tweedledee, home free

Cowboys and Indians, puppydogs and sandpails
Beachballs and baseballs and basketballs, too.
I love forget-me-nots, fluffernutters, sugarpops
I’ll hug you and kiss you and love you
La, la, la… Love you.

I had written a post on Farmers of our nation, had used some of the lyrics from this song in there

Peedha naale jammiya ne saadi dhur to kismat maadi
Saadiyan fasalan da kaato launde mul wapari
Peedha naale jammiya ne saadi dhur to kismat maadi
                      We grow crops with difficulty from day one we have bad luck
Saadiyan fasalan da kaaton launde MUL vyapari
                      Why does a trader put a PRICE on our crop
Aakho sarkaran nu ni saanu beche laake boli
                     Tell the government to sell us by an AUCTION
Assi kachche rang jehe sohniye saadi kaadi holi
                    Our colour is very poor , what shud we celebrate and why Holi
Assi kachche rang jehe sohniye saadi kaadi holi

Haalat uss maa wargi bachcha jamman te suk jaave chaati
                 Our life is like that mother, who gives birth to a child and finds she  has no milk in her for him
Palle panda khaka diyan ik palli te ik daati
               All we have is our crop and a sickle
Meeh pave paharan te saada kotha cheyon lag janda
              Rain falls on hills and our roof starts to leak
Barsat di holi nu ni das ki maane sukka tanda
             The holi played by rain how we gonna stop it
Assi tukhde marr jaana kamaliye je na agg faroli
              WE WILL JUST DIE a SLOW DEATH Unless someone comes and lights the FIRE
Assi kachche rang jehe, sohniye saadi kaadi holi
Assi kachche rang jehe, sohniye saadi kaadi holi
            Our colour is very poor , what shud we celebrate and why Holi

Fasalan te sprayan pittheyan de utte hi pump tike ne
                    Crops depend on fertilisers that we carry on our backs
Iss vari holi te pata ni kinne jatt vikey ne
                     This YEAR ON HOLI god know how many farmers have sold themselves
Hathayar hi suttey ne ajay chalaune nahin assi bhule
                  We have only put our ARMS DOWN.. havenot forgotten how to use them
Rafalna diyan naala de rakhe ne muh ajay tak khule
                   The mouths of our RIFLES are still open
Jit ke ja wardi ae pata ni kitteh thuggan di toli
                   Dont know where the looters/cheaters/thugs go after Winning the ELECTIONS
Assi kachche rang jehe sohniye saadi kaadi holi
Assi kachche rang jehe sohniye saadi kaadi holi
                 Our colour is very poor , what shud we celebrate and why Holi
