Behne De... Let me Flow...

Hello Friends,

Its long time i have not posted on the blog mainly due to so many turns at my end and than being a bit lazy to do also stating reasons for not being in the best frame of mind to write. But let me dust off that things and back to the posting.. back to the writings which inspires me a lot.. which makes me in diff in flow when i write. So today i have choosen to write about song, BEHNE DE from Movie Raavan (for Non Hindi users, BEHNE DE is like let me flow)


This song has got music of A.R.Rehman (Non Indian may relate to him to the JAI HO song from Slumdog) and superb flow of words in poetry by Gulzar, and striking vocal performance of Karthik.

Lyrics of BEHNE DE From RAAVAN goes as follows,

Arre aankh se boond gira koi
Chingari ka tukda jala koi
Umeed ko aag laga zara
Sehra ki pyaas bujha zara..

Umeed ko aag laga zara
Sehra ki pyaas bujha zara..
Ghan itna baras ke galne lagoon
Main paani ke upar tarne lagoon...

Behne de mujhe behne de mujhe behne de
Behne de ghanghor ghata behne de paani ki tarah
Saagar mein jaa girna hai behne de nadiyaa ki tarah
Shart lagi hai mar jaane ki jeena hai toh pyaar mein...

Deh kahi bhi ho mera, jaan rakhi hai yaar mein,
Beh jaa beh jaa, hai saagar ka kehna,
Beh jaa beh jaa, hai nadiyaa ko behna,

Patte se tapakti boond ki aawaz sunai di thi
Nadiyaan mein tapk aur gum ho jaa, beh gaya beh gaya.
Jo rah gaya rah gaya.

Behne de mujhe behne de..

Mera pal pal ang ang bhar diya,
Tune jaan pe junoon sa kar diya,
Mera hai kya jo main haar doon,
Jaan teri hai tujh pe vaar doon.

Doob gaye jo suna hai saare
Tere dere aate hai,
Dil ke chullu mein bechare,
Doobkiya gote khaate hai,

Beh jaa, beh jaa, Chal tod kinaare ko,
Beh jaa, beh jaa, dhar le majdhaare ko,
Chingaari uda ke raakh se, ek boond gira ke aankh se,
Chalne ka ishara kar gaya
Kar gaya kar gaya
Sab bhar gaya bhar gaya...



I really liked this song and the beautiful meaning it has got...and its very much can be related to our day today life and how we take it from there...

First para,

Arre aankh se boond gira koi
Chingari ka tukda jala koi
Umeed ko aag laga zara
Sehra ki pyaas bujha zara..


To state it what i feel is a drop of tear from our eyes should not go wasted but in fact it should act as a fuel to the fire burining inside us to do what we feel like...So a tear should fuel the things we always wanted to do.. it should give our hope a new chance, like Thomas Alva Edison in 1879 said once, i have found 1000 ways a we can not light bulb instead of discouraged by the failure. So same way a tear should not let us grief but fire the need rising in us... give us courage to do what we believe in and get ready to feel the passion of work, need and just fly...

Behne de mujhe behne de mujhe behne de
Behne de ghanghor ghata behne de paani ki tarah
Saagar mein jaa girna hai behne de nadiyaa ki tarah
Shart lagi hai mar jaane ki jeena hai toh pyaar mein...


Above para can tell us, we should flow... flow from the false commitement, unknown faces but just fly to the destination you aim for your self, to ppl you think are yours, to fulfill your needs which you are hiding inside by an unknown fear.. just let the emotions flow and see what a flow of emotion can do... like a river flowing become a sea.. emotions flowing correctly can turn to the treasure as big as sea... and inturn life is there which will end once... life there which will not go on forever.. so BET your life and do what you think is best and what you believe in... so if you have courage, live the life the way you want to.. not the way it takes you....


Deh kahi bhi ho mera, jaan rakhi hai yaar mein,
Beh jaa beh jaa, hai saagar ka kehna,
Beh jaa beh jaa, hai nadiyaa ko behna,

Patte se tapakti boond ki aawaz sunai di thi
Nadiyaan mein tapk aur gum ho jaa, beh gaya beh gaya.
Jo rah gaya rah gaya.

In life we come across many situtaions where we loose what we love most... but that should not stop us or our way of life to move it forward... So we should consider of our tomorrow, our destiny unfilled and move towards to achive it, instead of just sitting and curbing life.. but instead get up, take action of our deeds and lets make it happen..... We do hold back in time, when we can hear the drops from the leaf falling on land, when we feel we are holding our past, our memory too much and not moving in any direction... so just grow, move and let things happen.. if you are belive in your actions, things will come to you.. or will flow out of your life.. but just belive and act....

Its lovely song, and i think its difficult to give jutice to such beautiful words, so better i sing off and listen to this song and let it give you meaning of its words in its own style...

Let fall a drop, from your eyes.
Burn a fragment of the spark,
Alight a hint of hope,
Quench the void's thirst,
That I may cascade so densely and liquify,
Floating over water.

Let me be carried in the ebb
Let me be carried in the ebb
Running like the thunderous wind
Running like water
Plunge into the sea
Let me surge like the river

I have gambled for my death
To live only in love
Let my body be cast about
But within my beloved, my essence shall be
Succumb to the ebb
Succumb to the ebb
The sea calls
Succumb to the ebb
Succumb to the ebb
The river must surge

A sound was heard somewhere
As a drop toppled onto a leaf
cascade into the stream, and disappear.
All is adrift
all is adrift
He Who remains, will forever be so
All is adrift
all is adrift
He Who remains, will forever be so

Let me be carried in the ebb
Let me be carried in the ebb
Running like the thunderous wind
Running like water
Plunge into the sea
Let me surge like the river

You have permeated each moment and limb
You have immersed my essence in madness
What do I even have, to ever relinquish
This life is yours, I yield it to you
Those to have entered upon your abode
Have all drowned, it is said
All wretches, plunging and sinking
into the heart's quagmire
Succumb to the ebb
Succumb to the ebb
And breach the banks
Succumb to the ebb
Succumb to the ebb
And seize the swell

Igniting a flare from the ashes
Letting a drop fall from the eyes
gesturing for progression
And once given
and once given
Everything brimmed
Everything brimmed

Let me be carried in the ebb
Let me be carried in the ebb
Running like the thunderous wind
Running like water
Plunge into the sea
Let me surge like the river
