Eid Mubarak!

Eid Mubarak everyone!! :)


One of the most beautiful songs ever sung by one of the greatest singers ever.



I actually like their lyrical not really literal translation too. Lyrics:


Chandni Raatein – These Moonlit Nights
Original 1955


Ik tees jigar mein uthti hay
My whole being throbs with pain
Ik dard sa dil mein hoota hay
There is an ache deep in my heart
Hum raatoon ko uth kar rootay hain
I get up at night to weep
Jab sara alam sota hai hooo
While the rest of the world is sleeping

Chandni raatein, chandni raatein
These moonlit nights

Sab jag soay hum jagein
All the world is sleeping, and I alone am awake
Taroon se karein baatein
I can talk to the stars

Chandni raatein hoo chandni raatein
These moonlit nights

Taktey taktey tuti ja ay aas piya na aay ree taktey taktey
As I wait my yearning grows weary but my beloved does not come
Sham sawaray dard anookhay uthay jiya ghabra ay ree sham sawaray
From dawn to dusk, strange pains come and frighten me
Raatoon ne mere neend lootli raatoon ne mere neend lootli dil ke cheen chura ay
I lose sleep and all peace of mind
Dukhiya ankhein dhoond rahi hain wohi pya ki khatein
My sad eyes still long to see my love

Chandni raatein hooo chandni raatein
These moonlit nights

pichly raat mein hum uth uth kar chupke chupke rooein raay pichly raat mein.
Last night I arose and wept quietly
Sukh ki neend mein meet humaray desh para ay sooin re sukh ki neend mein.
While my beloved slept peacefully in a foreign land

Dil ke dharkanay tujhay pukarain,
My heart cries out
Dil ke dharkanay tujhay pukarain aja balam aai baharein
My heart cries out, “Come my beloved the Spring is here!”
Beth kay tanhai mein kar lein dukh sukh ki do baatein
All alone, let us talk of joy and sorrow

Chandni raatein hoo chandni raatein
These moonlit nights

Enter badman…

I think these guys are incredibly hilarious so had to share them here. Reminds me of our old MSA/MYNA skit days and even way back to the Blair Khan Project and Ghandagee etc. There are still some funny MSA type skits on youtube going on and of course Azhar and Allah Made Me Funny tours too, but it’s been awhile since something edgy, fresh & quality came out. Good stuff all around :D

Warning: There’s music/girls in the videos and some not so perfect stuff, so don’t watch if you feel you’ll be offended. Don’t watch if you don’t have a sense of humor or don’t like British humor.

If you only have time for one #3 the Eid one is my favorite ;) Also a little key for some of the British slang:

“blud” “bledrens” = dudes
“safe”=cool, bye
“wahgwan/wag1″= wassup
“buff”= good looking
“butters” = ugly
“bare” = very, a lot
“079 me”= call me

The End… and if ur interested here’s an interview with Humza Arshad, the badman himself!

Safe =)
