punjabiyat...

was listenin to punjabi songs today..so decided to put 2 songs i like up:
chan chaandni raat by babbu maan(not the complete lyrics..just lines i like)
"chan chaandni raat meherma timtimande taare...
pichli gali wich aaja soniya sonde pind de saare.. "

"doodh pilawa lachiyaan waala..."

"kapde sukhe laun bahane mai kothe te jawa..
desi ghyon di churi kut tere muhch burkiyaan pawaan.."

(this is the sweetest line[literally as well as metaphorically]..means i come to the terrace to dry clothes as an excuse..and put bites of churi in your mouth..churi is a typical punjabi dish..its made by making small bites of roti, desi ghee and sugar..its supposed to be made to build your health types..i know this coz mama is fond of me eating that to make me all fat:D:D, but its really delicious and sortof a symbol of pampering and love and doting and all..)
the song above is somewhat related to the folklore of heer ranjha

jugni by rabbi shergill

...Background speech by A B Vajpayee...

Jugni dekhan chali desh....

...Agressive speech about killing in Kashmir by someone

Jugni jaa wadi kashmir ....

vir meryaa ve jugni....
vir meryaa ve jugni kehndi aa....
ek neer nawe aaj behndi hain..

...A punjabi news item....in background

vir meryaa ve jugni....
vir meryaa ve jugni kehndi aa....
aaj naam guraa daan lehendi aa.......

---Background...AB Vajpayee speech...

this song you must listen to..its a take on the present situation of india..right from kashmir problems to the huge amounts of foreign migration from punjab to the rush in mumbai and delhi..to a life where no one has time for anyone..when people are just busy earning money..when there is politics in every bloody thing..this song even makes more sense..for those who are unaware this is what the past week has been for india:

1)riots in punjab

there is some baba that people have faith in..his name is gurmeet ram rahim..he has a number of deras in punjab and haryana where people come and live..and listen to him talk about god nd stuff...now apparently he dressed up like guru gobind singh at some ceremony which is blasphemy as in sikh religion , imitations of gurus are disallowed..infact in our mythological movies also there can be no person representing the guru..now people took offence at this..violence started..major role being played by politicians as it seems the akalis who are protesting and this baba are political rivals..something which could have been ignored as someones;s blunder or just finished up with an apolog has been made into a huge issue with some deaths, people injured..and overall disturbance of life..the only section benefitted is i guess the media which is having a field day..and some politicians somehow..

2)there was a bomb blast in hyderabad mecca masjid on friday..nine were killed in the blasts and three protestors by police firing..

its so unfortunate that religion which is supposed to bring peace of mind, which is supposed to lead us towards the right path, which is supposed to teach us to be happy is being misused like this..as an intrument to create violence for some political gains..or as a way to injure or kill people..it is being used to divide and not unite..no wonder people are turning atheists these days..

Your post reminded me of the
following lines...

Jitthe ittaran de wagde ne cho,
ni othe mera yaar wasda,
jitthe langdi hai paun wi khalo,
ni othe mera yaar wasda

Where rivers of perfume flow,
Is the home of my beloved.
Where passing breezes halt,
Is the home of my beloved.
