The rewind button on the different music apps makes one think if we can have a rewind button in life too.. They do say that Hindsight is a boon, But sometimes the same hindsight also shows us what a prick we have been .. the concept of WHAT IF .. comes into action.

What if 2013 did not come, or what if the decision one took was a different one, BUT then everyone also says Destiny ..What has to happen will happen no matter what we do. So the decisions made would have been made irrespective of what the hindsight tells us now.

Very confusing, recently I was so fed up of everything that was going on around me that I thought of rewinding back the clock , So I went to a couple of places for 2 days only to try to relive the time that has gone back. It was not the same but I did have a smile for a few hours on my face.

Sometimes we make dreadful and very very wrong decisions, the worst thing is those decision can’t be taken back and we have to live our entire life with them, the clocks cant to rewound , whats done is done, friends turn to foes, people we love turn to people who hate us.   I do wish that there is a way in this world where we can make things right after they have been completely destroyed by us only.

If someone else has destroyed those it probably is easy to forget or at least live with the hate we have for them, but what if the one who has destroyed it is you , yourself. What do you do..  I know many people say that they don’t remember or have moved on, But I for one have not been able to forgive myself. I know I have done wrong VERY WRONG, how do we make it right.   If we had the opportunity to tap that Rewind button then I would have surly done it by now.

So I spent a couple of days last week roaming on the streets, trying to freshen up the memory of the not so distant past, it is still as if it was yesterday, God what a fool I would make of myself getting excited over Eating those masala Corn, one gets in cinema halls, or eating the lovely chicken in a restaurant, Riding a auto-rickshaw, looking at a Enfield bike and shouting ohhh “BULLET”…

I have always maintained that if I was to live my life all over again , I would do the same , make the same mistakes because I am what I am — (Good-Bad-Ugly) because of those mistakes or decisions… But as with everything else Exceptions are always there, I too have one which I would not want to repeat, this will probably haunt me for the rest of my life but the damage has been done , I dont see any way how it can be rectified.

ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.……………..

The rewind button …………

 

 

PS:- My apologies for not answering to the comments on previous post , and also not visiting all the lovely blogs. I will do that Soon.

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

 

 

 

The Following is a beautiful song, I am sure many will understand what it means but for those who dont I have tried translating although I have not been able to do justice to what the Song actually means.  Trying to get back to blogging slowly and starting with the monday musical tradition. To bring forward good songs, Hope you like it.

Padi namaaz te Niyaaj na sukhiya,
Teriyan kis kaam padiyan namaazan

Na ghar ditha na gharwala ditha,
Teriyan kis kaam ditiyan ne assaan

Ilam padiya te amal na kita,
Teriyaan  kis kaam kitiyan ibadaan

bulle shah pata odon lag si, jado chidi fasi hath baajan

Read the holy scriptures,
but you got no knowledge from it ..

Whats the use of Reading all that
All knowledge that you got ,
You did not act on them..
What use is that Knowledge..

othe amla de hone ne nabade  kissie ne teri Zaat puchni 
oithe amla de hone ne nabade kissie ne teri jaat puchni

jhoothe maan tere jhoothe sab chehre
kissie nahin teri zaat puchni

oithe amla de hone ne nabade kissie ne teri zaat puchni- 

Up there is where all will end, NO one will ask what RACE-CREED you are

Its all a Lie this prestige-pride you talk off No is going to ask what Race-Creed you are

Luk Luk ke saude karna hain
Bin Mehnat Bhojhe Bharna hain

sadhaan nu Chor banave tun
Na allah kolon darna hain

saare jag which noor hai usda
na uston koi parda

You make deals hiding
Want gain without working heard

Turn holy men into theives
Not afraid of the almighty

His eyes are on the Whole world
Nothing is hidden from HIM 

Kisse ronde nu viraya eh taan das khan
kise bhukhe nu rajaya eh taan das khan

raah chon rode nu hataya eh taan das khan
kadi zakhaM kisseda fat nahinyo seeta

aven feri Tasveer KAKH v Nahin kita

Have you ever helped someone crying
Have you ever Fed any Hungy

Have you removed that stone from a path
Have you put a bandage on someone’s hurt

NO you just Say DONE NOTHING EVER  

Aakhir chadhne mehal Munare
baith sada nahin rehna

char dina da mela sajna bahuti der nahin rehna
jo beejenga kamliya bandiya ohiyo wadhna paina

One Day you got to leave all these worldy goods
Wont sit here for ever

Life is but of 4 days it will end soon

You Reap what you SOW..

Peeke Amrit AMAR na ho sakiyon
Sikh panth di das tun shaan ki hain

Je na ladiyon ajit jujhar wangon
bajaan waale di das santaan ki hain

Ohi jitde ne baaji which duniya
jehde jitan lai baaji haarde ne

uth khalsa guraan de laal Tainu  wajaan which sirhind de maarde neGetting baptised doesnot mean you will become great

If you dont Fight like Ajeet Singh and Jujhar singh the Sons of Guru Gobind singh ,
Then dont call yourself a SIKH

Those who are willing to lose to Win the final battle are the Real Winners

Get up Be the Sikh that Guru made, You are being called upon by the voices that ring in SIRHIND

Reviving the Musical Monday Tradition, you can see old entries here (1 ,2,3..,9,1018,19,20 ) .. 26th January today .. so happy republic day to all Indians..

A song very close to my heart .. very old..


 Lagi nazar PUNJAB nu
Ehdi nazar utaro Lai ke Mirchaan kaudiyaan
Ehde sir ton waro
An Evil eye has befallen PUNJAB
Someone come and help
Take some green Peppers
and use them to ward off evil
Jeeeen Mere Vatana Diyan Maavan
Tai Ghar Ghar Jeevaaan Putt Jawan
Oh Kurriyan Chirian Dheyan Bhena
SABH JEEVEN Kushian Manaan&nbsp
Kikli kaleer di Di Pagh Mere Veer DiDuppata Mere Bhai Da Fittay Mu Jawai Da

 

May all the Mothers in my nation live Long  And may each household have a son All the Girls Daughters Sisters

All HAVE A Fun and a Enjoyable SAFE Life

Mera desh mere dildaran daa
Rishiyaan Muniyaan Avtaraan Da
Mera desh mere dildaran daa
My country is for all my people 
My country is full of all saints, lords and holy people
My country is for all my people
 Itthay rehmat peer fakiran di
Mere desh mahobbat heeran di
Sanu maan Hai  Ranjhen Yaraan Da
My country is blessed by holy-saints
My country has lots of love stories like that of HEER
We are proud of friends like RANJHA
Mera desh mere dildaran daa Mera desh mere dildaran daa My country is for all my people  My country is for all my people
Sada haal muridan da kehna Meri kaum ton karza nahin lehna Guru gobind jihe sardaran daa Punjabi’s cant pay off what they Owe To Guru Gobind Singh and others
Mera desh mere dildaran daa Mera desh mere dildaran daa My country is for all my people   My country is for all my people
Itthay ghar ghar pooja oye rabb di hai Iss dharti te akh jag di hai Par dar vi aa talvaran da In my country households pray to god ..Every other nation has an eye on our nation BUT they are afraid of our SWORDS
Mera desh mere dildaran daa Mera desh mere dildaran daa My country is for all my people My country is for all my people


Hello everyone , Not sure if you all will understand the Punjabi, but if you listen a couple of times you should be able to, it’s a slow song , sung very nicely by one of my favourite singers and If you can hear the words or read the lyrics they are so true , I am sure many people will be able to relate to this all.. This is Short and sweet .. 🙂

(do Ignore the stupid pictures , just listen to the song, I could not find a better video)

Kaun Kina tainu Chaunhand – Tainu khak v pata nahin

Kaun rataan nu nahin Saunda – Tainu Kakh v pata nahin

Tere nakhre da bhaar har Roz wadhi jaave – Kaun Kina Mul Paunda – Tainu Kakh v pata nahin

 

Someone Loves you so deeply — You don’t have a clue

Someone spends sleepless nights –You don’t have a clue

Your air gets heavier by the day .. Who gets more Value — You don’t have a clue

 

Duniya ch kinee  Sohne –

Unglan te giniye je

Haye tera Naam kithe aunda .. tainu Kakh v pata nahin

World has os many beautiful people –

If I count them on my fingers

Where your name comes – You don’t have a Clue

Tun akhne Debi naal bas jaan pehchaan –

Ni tainu Geetaan rahin gaunda

Tainu Kakh V pata nahin

You say you just know me

I sing you through my words

You don’t have a clue

 

PS. It’s a friends Birthday today .. Wishing you A very happy birthday … Many many happy returns of the day..

 

Have a great week Ahead Everyone…

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
