Paar Channa De- The Story Behind The Song

I was mesmerized to listen to this song. I believe this is one of the beautifully rendered traditional song in Coke studio.

Sohni took the pot and began her journey to meet her lover.  When she was a quarter of the way across, she realized something was wrong.  The sturdy piece of pottery that served as her lifesaver was melting into the water.  She called for her Mahiwal.  Mahiwal heard his love’s cries.  He swam as far as he could with his limp leg.  He met her drowning body halfway through the river but he could not hold himself up against the current.  While holding on to each other, they both drowned in the Chenab River.”

Legend has it that the bodies of Sohni and Mahiwal were recovered from the Indus River near Shahdadpur, Sindh, somewhere near Hyderabad, Pakistan.
Sohni’s tomb is located at Shahpur Chakar Road, Shahdadpur, and is visited by lovers.

Paar chana de disse kulli yaar di
Ghariya ghariya aa ve ghariya (x2)

Right there across the chenab river lies
My beloved's hut
Come on, clay-pot, let’s keep going

Raat haneri nadi thathaan maardi
Ariye ariye haan ni ariye

The night is deathly dark
The river waves surge high around us
Oh listen, girl, don’t be stubborn

Paar chana de disse kulli yaar di
Ghadeya ghadeya aa ve ghadeya
Raat haneri nadi thathaan maardi
Ariye ariye haan ni ariye

Kachi meri mitti kacha mera naam ni
Haan main na-kaam ni
Ho main naakaam ni, haan main na-kaam ni

Kachi meri mitti kacha mera naam ni
Haan main na-kaam ni
Kacchiyaan da hunda kacha anjaam ni
Eh gal ‘aam ni

I am a pot made of unbaked clay
Bound to melt away in the river
Being unsound and unsteady
I cannot but fail in carrying you across
The unsound can only reach an unsound end
This is a truth known to all

Kacheyaan te rakhiye na umeed paar di
Ariye ariye haan ni ariye

Raat haneri nadi thaathaan maardi
Ariye ariye haan ni ariye

Don't rely on the unsound
To help you reach the shore
Oh listen, girl, don’t be stubborn

Paar chanaa de disse kulli yaar di
Ghadeya ghadeya aa ve ghadeya
Raat haneri nadi thaathaan maardi
Ariye ariye haan ni ariye

Ho oh o.. Ho..

Vekh chhallan paindiyan nah chhaddeen dil ve (x2)
Ajj mahiwaal noon main jaana mil ve (x2)

Look, the waves are splashing higher and higher
But don’t lose heart
I must go to meet mahiwal this night at any cost

Vekh chhallaan paindiyan na chadden dil ve
Haan laike khil ve
Ajj mahiwaal nou main jana mil ve
Haan aiho dil ve

Look, the waves are splashing higher and higher
but don’t lose heart
so help transport me there
I must go to meet mahiwal this night at any cost
yes, my heart insists on going

Yaar noon milegi ajj laash yaar di (x3)
Ghadeya ghariya aa ve ghariya
Paar channah de disse kulli yaar di
Ghadeya ghadeya aa ve ghadeya
Paar channa de dise khull yaar de
Ghadeya ghadeya aa ve ghadeya

Tonight, a lover will be greeted
With the corpse of his beloved
Come on, clay-pot, let’s keep going

Raat haneri nadi thaathaan maardi
Adiye adiye aa ni adiye

Paar chaana de disse khulli haan kulli
Ve kulli yaar di
Ghadeya ghadeya aa ve ghadeya
Raat haneri nadi thaathaan maardi
Adiye adiye aa ni adiye

Phad pallara
Phad pallara pakke murshad da
Jehda tainu paar lagaave
Jehda tainu paar lagaave

Hold firmly to
Hold firmly to the sound guide
Who will take you safely to the shore

Ghariya (x15)
Tainu paar lagaave (x7)
Ghariya (x7)

O clay pot, take you safely to the shore
O clay-pot

I loved the original version as well. The matka sound is mystical, so is Arif's Lohar sound.



I can't still get over this song

That Perfect Wife

Hold on, there is nothing called perfect wife in this world but why this title for this post?
This is just to indicate that finding that perfect wife is what everyone does when you really have nothing called so.

Why do we want to find someone or something perfect?
I have been through some marriage proposals in the past which I am not proud of. Why? 
Because I aimed at getting the perfect girl when good was 'best' enough.I could have easily moulded her later.

There was this girl who was an inch taller than me with heels. It seemed that it was not perfect and not good enough.Another girl, had her only dreams in marriage settling abroad and she wouldn't even settled for anything less which I happily rejected. Not that I wouldn't be able to do that. This was just the thinking of 'my dreams' rather than 'our collective dreams'.

Then I found her, the one I wanted who was just next to me as my closest friend. But what will it make me chose her amongst all others? Its that I know her good and bad side.I dont care about her past. All that matters is her future in greatness.

I slowly tried to mould her to perfection by advising her to read more books, get wiser. But I failed to mould her because even though it will make her life wiser, it will take her out of her comfort zone to deal with it.

Why do I want my girl to be perfect?
Because knowing life is different.When you start to do things outside of your comfort zone, that is when you see the truth of life. Things are changing and she realises it now. One day I would want my girl to be awesome and stand out in the crowd with prideness that she is knowledgable, intelligent and confident.

That Perfect Wife- doesn't exist.It only needs some few characteristics but It doesn't exist.

You just get perfect life, its tough to get perfect wife.

Fiction and Non Fictions: Beer and Wine

Did you compare your reading speeds with fiction and non fiction?

I tried to deal with this analogy with drinking beer and wine. My reading speed is comparatively slow with other book bloggers. I manage to finish a non fiction in 3 weeks, 1/2hr a day. I finish a fiction in 1.5 weeks, 1/2hr a day.
My recent read in non fiction is 'The Art of Thinking Clearly' by Rolf Dobeli.

Evidently, I take more time reading a nonfiction compared to a fiction. Because I have to analyse the thoughts, digest and relate it. Its definitely not a fast read.I read it like drinking wine, slow and steady.

I engulf my beer like reading fiction. Reading between the lines and finishing some awesome books with bottomsup.

They have thier ways of reading. If you mix it up though, you would not be able to enjoy the taste.

So what do you like? Beer or Wine?
