Yesterday I bought a Farida Khanum Cd and with that came a free CD of some movie called “Chuasar” though I have never heard its name before the music was pretty decent… The following song stuck a chord and got me thinking (though it is not half as good as the original folk one). When will the girl child be librerated. I will not write much but let u ponder over the lyrics…

Mayee Re…. Maaye Re…. Maaye Re….
Agle janam mohe bitiya na keejo
Bitiya jo keejo tou phir aisa keejo
Bitiya ke jaisa bhagya na deejo

Bachpan main babel ke aangna main dooli
Yuvan main biran ki booli main booli
Laaya jo doli usiki main holi
Marzi ka apna na tanva na manva

Sita bhi bankar satayi gayee main
Ansuyia ban kar jalaye gayee main
Chuasar main pasaa banyee gayee main
Chinti banayeo ya chidiya banayeo
Naari banane ka kasht na kijo

PS: a little modified version of the folk is also present in the Umrao Jaan (2006) and it goes like this:

Ab jo kiye ho daata aisa na keejo
agle janam mohe bitiya na keejo.

Jo ab kiye ho daata, aisa na keejo
agle janam mohe bitiya na keejo…

Hamre sajanwa hamra dil aisa todin
Oo ghar basaain hamka rasta ma chhodin
jaise ki lalla koi, khilona jo paave
dui char din to khele, phir bhool jaave
ro bhi na paave aisi gudiya na kijo
agle janam mohe bitiya na keejo

jo ab kiye ho daata aisa na keejo
agle janam mohe bitiya na keejo

Aisi bidai bolo dekhi kahin hai
maiya na babul bhaiya, kauno nahin hai
ho…, aansu ke gehne hain, aur dukh ki hai doli
band kivadiya more ghar ki boli
is oor sapnon mein bhi aaya na keejo

agle janam mohe bitiya na keejo
jo ab kiye ho daata aisa na keejo
agle janam mohe bitiya na keejo
agle janam mohe bitiya na keejo
