The New Stuff

Yeh Baangur Jaisi Duniya Re

Yeh Baangur Jaisi Duniya Re Duniya, Yeh Phaase Udti Muniya Re Muniya…. Have you heard this song yet? If not, it’s a must for those who have the taste for likes of “Bawra Man Dekhne Chala Ek Sapna” or “Goonja sa hai ek iktara iktara”. I mean this new song from the movie “I AM” is just so awesome. More than the track, I’m in love with the words here; beautiful lyrics I must say and Kavita Seth is as magican as in Iktara song from Wake Up Sid. I always get hooked on to the songs that have great words as compared to great music. Not that the music is not important but words matter a lot when it comes to classifying any song as one of my favorite ones. Baangur definitely gets added to that list; just read the lyrics below, ain’t it just so soulful?


Yeh Baangur Jaisi Duniya Re Duniya Re Duniya
Yeh Phaase Urrti Muniya Re Muniya Re Muniya
Jo Choone Chali Khula Aasmaan
Kahin Bujh Na Jaey Na Jaey Na Jaey Bechaari Daastaan
Jo Choone Chali Khula Aasmaan
Kahin Bujh Na Jaey Na Jaey Na Jaey Bechaari Daastaan
Maula Re Saaiyaan, Sun Le Duhaaiyaan
Sun Le Duhaaiyaan

Phirti Thi Hawaaon Mein, Par Lagte Thay Paaon Mein
Zindagi Band Pinjron Mein Kiyun Aaj Rehti Hai
Neendon Ke Sandooqon Mein Kabhi Sone Ke Sapne Thay
Aaj Peetal Ke Tukrron Ko Mohtaaj Rehti Hai

Yeh Baangur Jaisi Duniya Re Duniya Re Duniya
Yeh Phaase Urrti Muniya Re Muniya Re Muniya
Jo Choone Chali Khula Aasmaan
Kahin Bujh Na Jaey Na Jaey Na Jaey Bechaari Daastaan
Jo Choone Chali Khula Aasmaan
Kahin Bujh Na Jaey Na Jaey Na Jaey Bechaari Daastaan
Maula Re Saaiyaan, Sun Le Dohaaiyaan
Sun Le Duhaaiyaan


Maybe it’s the mood or the last few days which have been horrible, hectic & harrowing that I’m just so addicted to this song. Have been playing it in loop ever since heard it few days back. Isn’t it true that for each bird who tries to fly there are many, waiting down to catch her or pull her down?

@Bhargavi: Its a lovely song, can translate the main theme of it - "Yeh Baangur Jaisi Duniya Re Duniya Re Duniya, Yeh Phaase Urrti Muniya Re Muniya Re Muniya".... Muniya is a small bird & Baangur is bird trap...so the song says that this world is like a trap which tries to catch the little birds who fly high.

havent heard it so far....i always like folk songs or the ones where...apni mitti ki khushbu aati ha

as for pulling down, Indian are famous for their crab mentality.
