Tere Ishq nachaya..

Thank god for long weekends 🙂

After a long long while.. here it goes..
There’s this song which has been playing in my head for days now..

Beautiful poetry.. Beautiful song..and the story behind it

Due to some reason, Bulle Shah’s guru is upset with him and refuses to see him. Burning in Viyog, he tries everything to seek his mercy.
Then he remembers his Guru’s love for song and dance. He joins a group of nautch girls and learns to dance and sing.

On an occassion when he knew His Guru would be present, he disguises himself as a women and sings and dance.

Thats when this song was sung..

Tere Ishq nachaya Kar Thaiya Thaiya

Cheti aavin Ve Tabiba, Nahin Ta Main Mar Gaiyaan
Cheti Bawdi Ve Tabiba, Nahin Ta Main Mar Gaiyaan
(come back soon, i am dying without you)

Tere ishq ne dera mere andar kita
bhar ke zeher payala mein te aapey pita
jhabde bhaudi ve tabiba nahin te mein mar gaiyan
( Your love is spread inside me…I, myself, filled the cup with this poison and drank it)
(come back soon, i am dying without you)

Tere Ishq nachaya Kar Thaiya Thaiya
Tere Ishq nachaya Kar Thaiya Thaiya

Chup gaya ve suraj bahar reh gayee aa lali,
Ve mein sadkey hovan, deven mud je vakhali,
Peeran mein bhul gayian, terey naal na gayian
Terey Ishq Nachaiyan kar thaiya thaiya,

(the sun has set now, only glow remains.. I will give my life for one glimpse
Its my fault I didnt go when you called )

Aes Ishq Di Jhungi Vich Mor Bolen Da
Saanu Qibla Te Kaaba, Sohna Yaar Disenda
Saanu Ghaayal Karke Pher Khabar Na Layiyaan
Saanu Ghaayal Karke Pher Khabar Na Layiyaan

(Peacocks sing in the groves of love.
My beautiful beloved is my kaaba, my kibbala)

Tere Ishq nachaya Kar Thaiya Thaiya
Tere Ishq nachaya Kar Thaiya Thaiya

Although I am not much into English songs, this one completely made me fall in love with it. Its amazing how music can make you feel so much…

I’ve been awake for a while now
You got me feeling like a child now
‘Cause every time I see your bubbly face
I get the tinglies in a silly place

Starts in my toes
makes me crinkle my nose
where ever it goes i always know
that you make me smile
please stay for a while now
just take your time
where ever you go

Oh, and you can find it on my facebook profile.

Shine like a Star..

Faith. There isn’t much worse then losing faith. And the battle is pretty much lost the moment we lose it.

So.. Keep walking 🙂

Shine like a star..

When you’ll see you have nothing to change in your fear,
When your dreams will come true through trouble and grief,
Then you will shine like a star, be the best you can be
In your heart, in your life, in your dreams.
Share all your shine with the entire world,
Make the people believe in love.
In that time when you will shine like a star,
You will see the path you’ve chosen in your life.
And no one can stop your shine.
No one can stop you again.
Its your time.

Shine like a star, be the best you can be
In your heart, in your life, in your dreams.
Share all your shine with the entire world,
Make the people believe in love.
Then you’ll throw away your sadness,
Then you’ll find again all your happiness.
Then you’ll keep forever your kindness.
You wil never be sad or brightless.
Shine like a star in the sky,
Shine like a star through the night.

Go figure :)

Jaise Aankhon Ki Dibiya Mein Nindiya
Aur Nindiya Mein Meetha Sa Sapna
Aur Sapne Mein Mil Jaaye Farishta Sa Koi
Jaise Rangon Bhari Pichkari
Jaise Titliyan Phoolon Ki Kyari
Jaise Bina Matlab Ka Pyara Rishta Ho Koi

Dekho Raaton Ke Seeney Pe Yeh Toh
Jhilmil Kisi Lau Se Ugey Hain
Yeh To Ambiya Ki Khusboo Hain
Baagon Se Beh Chale
Jaise Kaanch Mein Choodi Ke Tukde
Jaise Khiley Khiley Phoolon Ke Mukhde
Jaise Bansi Koi Bajaye Pedon Ke Tale

Kabhi Baatein Jaise Dadi Nani
Kabhi Chalkein Jaise Mum Mum Paani
Kabhi Ban Jaaye Bhole
Sawaalon Ki Jhadi
Sannatey Mein Hansee Ke Jaise
Sooney Hothon Pe Khushi Ke Jaise
Yeh To Noor Hain Barse Gar
Teri Kismat Ho Badi

Jaise Jheel Mein Lehraye Chanda
Jaise Bheed Mein Apne Ka Kandha
Jaise Manmauji Nadiya
Jhaag Udaye Kuch Kahe
Jaise Baithe Meethi Si Jhapki
Jaise Pyar Ki Dheemi Si Thapki
Jaise Kaanon Mein Sargam
Hardam Bajti Hi Rahe….

Radha & Meera

Today is Janmashtmi, and I want to write about two women who loved Krishna. Its their love for Him which is so pure, so selfless, that it makes me believe in Him more.

Radha,the eternal consort of Lord Krishna, Radha embodies the totality of love for Krishna. Like sun and sunshine, they are one… part of the same being.

The story of her birth goes like this – On a half-moon night in the month of Bhadra, King Vrishabhanu came to the Yamuna to bathe and found himself engulfed in a golden aura, the golden aura of pure love. It was emanating from a lotus, which had a baby girl standing on its whorl. When the king returned to the palace with the baby, Queen Kirtida was delighted. She was also shocked that the girl was blind.

Lord Krishna’s mother, Yashoda, heard that her best friend Kirtida had a baby, so she came to visit along with her husband and her son. Krishna crawled up to the cradle and pulled Himself up and looked in. At that moment, Srimati Radharani’s eyes fluttered and opened wide and blossomed like lotuses. It seems that she did not want to see anything of this world, only the form of Sri Krishna.


Although it is said that Krishna was so beautiful that He could attract millions of Cupids and was therefore called Madan-mohan, “the attractor of Cupid,” Radharani could attract even Krishna. She was therefore called Madan-mohan-mohini—”the attractor of the attractor of Cupid.”

For me, she symbolizes true devotion, selflessness, caring, nurturing, and love in its purest form. The reason why I think Krishna found her to be most the attractive was because of her devotion and her love for him. Sri Krishna says in Bhagavad-gita that as one surrenders unto Him, He reciprocates accordingly.

True love means no expectations and unconditional caring. Its said, once Rukmani asked Radha in her dream,”Why is it that whenever your name comes up in a conversation, Krishna gets very sad” Radha’s response,with tears flowing from her eyes,”Please never remind my Krishna about me,if it brings tears to his eyes”.

If I talk about Love for Krishna, how can I forget Meerabai? Meera’s love for Krishna was purest, noblest and unparalleled.The most unconditional, that I have ever known.. One that does not seek, just gives. Some say she was reincarnation of Radha.
She imagined herself to be one of the Gopis, Lalita, and knew Krishna’s heart lay somewhere else.

Are they opposites?

Love is same, devotion is equal. Its the manifestation of their love which differed…

There is this song which keeps coming to my mind when I think of both. I think it does capture the difference in their devotion..

Ek Radha, Ek Meera dono ne Shyam ko chaha
Antar kya dono ki chaah mein bolo
Ek prem deewani, ek daras deewani

Raadha na madhuban mein dhoonda
Meera ne man mein paaya
radha jise kho baithi
vo Govind aur daras dikhaya
Ek murali ek payal,
Ek pagli, ek ghayal
antar kya dono ki preet mein bolo
Ek surat lubhani, ek murat lubhani

Meera ke prabhu Girdhar naagar
Radha ke manmohan
Raadha din shringaar kare aur Meera ban gayi jogan
Ek rani ek dasi, dono Hari prem ki pyaasi
Antar kya dono ki tripti mein bolo
ek jeet na maani, ek haar na maani

P.S. I have struggled hard to understand all this, maybe the comprehension still evades me.
But then I feel you cannot understand if you try to see all this through eyes which are habitual to see the material world, you are bound to misconstrue..

Tere Bin

Generally Punjabi pop music is thought as high energy, dance-able nonsense.. If not, certainly I did think that for a brief period of time.
Although I love the folk songs, (esp tappe’s etc), but I just could not relate to Daler mehndi and the likes..

However, things are changing and good punjabi songs are coming to forefront…

There is this one.. which has been a favorite for a long long time now… which has been translated in English here..

Tere bin sanu sohnia,koi hor nahio labna

I wont find anyone else except you, my love..

Jo dave rooh nu sakun,chuke jo nakhra mera

The one who gives peace to my soul, one who indulges me

Ve main sare ghumm ke vekhia,amrika , roos, malaysia

I have been every where… America, Russia, Malaysia

Na kithey vi koi fark si, har kise di koi shart si

There was no difference anywhere, everyone had some conditions

Koi mangda mera si sama,koi hunda surat te fida

Some wanted my time, some liked my face

Koi mangda meri si vafa, na koi mangda merian bala

Some seeked my loyalties, but no one wanted my troubles

Tere bin hor na kise, mangni merian bala

Except you, no one else would want my troubles

Tere bin hor na kise, karni dhup vich chhan

Besides you, no one else will give shade in the sun

Tere bin sanu sohnia, koi hor nahio labhna
jo dave ruh nu sakun chukke jo nakhra mera

Jiven rukia si tun zara,nahion bhulna main sari umar

I would not forget this my entire life, the way you just stopped

Jiven akhia si akhan chura “rovenga sanu yad kar”

The way you looked away and said “you will cry when you remember me”

Hasia si main hasa ajeeb, par tu nahi si hasia

I had laughed at this, but you didnt

Dil vich tera jo raaz si,mainu tu kyon ni dasia

The secret that lay in your heart, why didnt you disclose it to me?

Tere bin sanu eh raz, kise hor nahion dasna

besides you, no one else will tell this secret to me

Tere bin peerh da ilaaj,kis vaid kolon labna

Except you, who shall give me the cure of my pains

Tere bin sanu sohnia, koi hor nahio labhna
jo dave ruh nu sakun chukke jo nakhra mera

Milia si aaj mainu, tera ik patra

Today I found a letter written by you

Likhia si jis te, tun shayr varey shah da

On which you had written a couplet by varis Shah

Padh ke si osnu, hanju ik duliya

After reading it, a tear fell from my eye

Akhan ch band si, eh raaz aaj khulia

The secret that lay in my eyes, got revealed

Ki tere bin eh mere hanju, kise hor nahio chumna

That except you, no one will kiss my tears

ki tere bin eh mere hanju,mitti vich rulnha

that besides you my tears will get lost in the dust…

tere bin sanu sohnia
koi hor nahio labhna
jo dave ruh nu sakun chukke jo nakhra mera…

Pls find the song on my Facebook profile..

I love living in my dreamworld
I love seeing life with my rose colored glasses
I love to add positive sprinklings of sugar on each questionable intent
I love to see the sunny side up of every broken egg
Neither I am scared of any realities, nor am I afraid of any truth.
If you cant understand that, you would never understand me.
If you don’t understand it, just let me be.
