Na Teri Haan Bani

Another of Z's requests...

Film: Bindiya Chamkegi
Singers: Lata Mangeshkar
Lyrics: Anjaan
MD: Rahul Dev Burman


Na Teri Haan Bani, Haan Meri Jaan Bani
your "no" became a "yes", "yes" became my life
Oh Marr Ke Yahan, Jee Gayee Main, Oh Sajna
after dying here, I lived, O sweetheart
Na Teri Haan Bani, Haan Meri Jaan Bani
Oh Marr Ke Yahan, Jee Gayee Main, Oh Sajna

Jurm Thi. Bhool Thi, Raha Thi Dhool Ki

Saathi Tere Bina Zindagi
life was a sentence, a mistake, a path of dust, partner, without you
Jurm Thi, Bhool Thi, Raha Thi Dhool Ki
Saathi Tere Bina Zindagi
Oh Baagh Jage Jab Pehne Yeh Kangana
my good fortunes awoke when I wore these bangles
(kangana here refers to the bangles often given to a new bride)
Na Teri Haan Bani, Haan Meri Jaan Bani

Phool Hi Phool Hai, Rang Hi Rang Hai

Murr Ke Dekhun Yahan Main Jidhar
wherever I turn around and look here, I see flowers and flowers, colors and colors
Phool Hi Phool Hai, Rang Hi Rang Hai
Murr Ke Dekhun Yahan Main Jidhar
Aaj Lage Saara Jahan Ek Sapna
today the whole world seems to be a dream
Na Teri Haan Bani, Haan Meri Jaan Bani

Baghon Mein Yaar Ki, Chhaon Mein Pyar Ki

Beete Saari Umar Jhoom Ke
may my entire life be spent spinning in my friend's (lover's) garden, in love's shade
Baghon Mein Yaar Ki, Chhaon Mein Pyar Ki
Beete Saari Umar Jhoom Ke
Koi Mera Ho Ke Na Ho, Tu Apna
(doesn't matter if) anyone is mine or not, you are mine
Na Teri Haan Bani, Haan Meri Jaan Bani
Oh Marr Ke Yahan, Jee Gayee Main, Oh Sajna
La La La La La.....
Hmm Hmm Hmm..

I told myself that it would be awesome if your blog linked to mine and guess what? It did! Thanks a lot. Do you have any requests? By the way, I love that painting of Sohni Mahiwal.

Always happy to promote old school Panjabi. :) Always glad to see younger folks still interested in the old school stuff too. I added it immediately after I saw it from PC's place and I very much liked the first picture you were using of the Babey sitting around. :)

I had tried to comment on your Sobha Singh post too but it kept asking me to enter the letters for verication yet I didn't see any letters, tried in IE and Mozilla, will have to try and comment again sometime and see if it works. That Sohni Mahiwal as you know was probably in every Punjabi household abroad, pretty much one of the few truly Indian things in the house that immigrants in the 60s and 70s brought with them. I have spent many afternoon staring at that painting at various relatives houses as a kid, trying to tune out the Aunties' chai talk (gossip), lol.

No requests at the moment, thanks for asking, sweet of you. At some point I'm gonna get around to posting some bhangra lyrics and playlists.

I like that picture a lot too, but I don’t know who made it. I really want to acknowledge the artist and I feel somewhat guilty about using their art without mentioning their name. Hopefully, you didn’t want to say anything bad under that Sobha Singh post because I basically suggested everything other than Sobha Singh was no good. About the Sohni Mahiwal picture, I have it downstairs as well but it got broken due to someone’s drunkenness. I actually never tune out during the gossip because I find it amusing, but I know what you’re saying. I had a relative suggest one shouldn’t keep pictures of doomed lovers in their house because it could be detrimental to their relationships. What garbage. I look forward to your Bhangra lyrics and playlists. Is it okay if I ask you about certain Punjabi words every now and then? I could ask my mother but sometimes the song is somewhat vulgar (i.e. Chamkila) and she’ll know what song I’m listening to and negate me. With my father, I could ask but he just repeats the word. For example if you ask him what shabab is his reply is “Shabab Shabab.” Well anyways, take care and thanks for visiting and linking to my blog.

Lol, no nothing bad at all. I had not seen that Baba Deep Singh portrait before so just wanted to comment on how nice it was. I've heard people say the same thing about keeping a replica of the Taj Mahal at home - whatever, lol. Sure ask away, hopefully I can help. Your dad sounds like my mom, ha ha. On the other hand if I used to ask my dad about something he'd go off like the father in "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" - apparently every English word originated from India too. :P Totally not worth the half an hour explanation so I bought a dictionary when I went to India in the 90s. Have fun out there in blogland.
