Wishing all the wonderful women that I know and every other woman I don’t a very Happy Women’s Day. May the power grow, light shine and success breed marching forward to a better us and a better tomorrow. Here are a few songs that show case the power of woman which I get to see in bits and pieces here and there sometimes.

First up, from my favorite movie titled Gundamma Katha ( = Gundamma’s Story), a hit Telugu film from 1962. Sung and also composed by Ghantasala to the Lyrics penned by Pingali Nageswara Rao.  The song is sung by the lead actor to impress the actress in telling how powerful women have become.


Lyrics in Romanized Telugu:

Lechindi Nidra Lechindi Mahilaalokam, Daddarillindi Purusha Prapancham
Lechindi Mahilaalokam

Epudo Cheppenu Vemanagaru, Apude Cheppenu Brahmam Garu
Epudo Cheppenu Vemanagaru, Apude Cheppenu Brahmam Garu

Lechindi Nidra Lechindi, Nidra Lechindi Mahilaa Lokam

This song “Independent Woman Part I” sung by the American girl group Destiny’s Child (comprised Beyoncé Knowles, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams) and first appeared on the soundtrack of the 2000 hit English fim Charlie’s Angels.


Lyrics in English:

Lucy Liu... With My Girl, Drew... Cameron D. And Destiny
Charlie's Angels, Come On Uh Uh Uh

Question: Tell Me What You Think About Me
I Buy My Own Diamonds And I Buy My Own Rings
Only Ring Your Cell-Y When I'm Feelin Lonely
When It's All Over Please Get Up And Leave
Question: Tell Me How You Feel About This
Try To Control Me Boy You Get Dismissed
Pay My Own Fun, Oh And I Pay My Own Bills
Always 50/50 In Relationships

The Shoes On My Feet, I've Bought It
The Clothes I'm Wearing, I've Bought It
The Rock I'm Rockin', 'Cause I Depend On Me
If I Wanted The Watch You're Wearin', I'll Buy It
The House I Live In, I've Bought It
The Car I'm Driving, I've Bought It
I Depend On Me, (I Depend On Me)

All The Women Who Are Independent
Throw Your Hands Up At Me
All The Honeys Who Makin' Money
Throw Your Hands Up At Me
All The Mommas Who Profit Dollas
Throw Your Hands Up At Me
All The Ladies Who Truly Feel Me
Throw Your Hands Up At Me

Girl I Didn't Know You Could Get Down Like That
Charlie, How Your Angels Get Down Like That
Girl I Didn't Know You Could Get Down Like That
Charlie, How Your Angels Get Down Like That

Tell Me How You Feel About This
Who Would I Want If I Would Wanna Live
I Worked Hard And Sacrificed To Get What I Get
Ladies, It Ain't Easy Bein' Independent
Question: How'd You Like This Knowledge That I Brought
Braggin' On That Cash That He Gave You Is To Front
If You're Gonna Brag Make Sure It's Your Money You Flaunt
Depend On Noone Else To Give You What You Want

The Shoes On My Feet, I've Bought It
The Clothes I'm Wearing, I've Bought It
The Rock I'm Rockin', 'Cause I Depend On Me
If I Wanted The Watch You're Wearin', I'll Buy It
The House I Live In, I've Bought It
The Car I'm Driving, I've Bought It
I Depend On Me, (I Depend On Me)

All The Women Who Are Independent

Girl I Didn't Know You Could Get Down Like That
Charlie, How Your Angels Get Down Like That
[Repeat Until Fade]

From the 1985 Hindi film Aakhir Kyon? ( = But Why?), this song titled “Komal Hai Kamzor Nahin Tu” was Sung by Asha Bhosle. Music composed by Rajesh Roshan to the Lyrics penned by Indeevar. This movie is all about one woman and how her life is turned into a turmoil by her vagabond husband and step-sister, so much so that after taking away her life and kid, in the end they approach her to help them when they are in downside of their life. Ironically she helps being the generous woman which BTW I didn’t like the ending. I would have rather seen him kicked in his behind. One of the lines in the song “Jag Ko Jivan Dene Wali Maut Bhi Tujhse Hari Hai” has such indepth meaning. One who has given birth to this world, even Death has lost with you – how much more deeper can it get!! I had posted another song a while ago from the same movie that is an inspirational one. Check it here.


Lyrics in Romanized Hindi / Urdu:

Komal Hai Kamzor Nahi Tu Shakti Ka Naam Hi Nari Hai
Jag Ko Jivan Dene Wali Maut Bhi Tujhse Hari Hai
Komal Hai Kamzor Nahi Tu Shakti Ka Naam Hi Nari Hai
Jag Ko Jivan Dene Wali Maut Bhi Tujhse Hari Hai
Komal Hai Kamzor Nahi Tu

Satiyo Ke Naam Me Tujhe Jalaya, Mira Ke Naam Pe Jahar Pilaya
Satiyo Ke Naam Me Tujhe Jalaya, Mira Ke Naam Pe Jahar Pilaya
Sita Jaisi Agni Pariksha Jag Me Abb Tak Jari Hai
Komal Hai Kamzor Nahi Tu Shakti Ka Naam Hi Nari Hai
Jag Ko Jivan Dene Wali Maut Bhi Tujhse Hari Hai
Komal Hai Kamzor Nahi Tu

Ilm Hunnar Mein Dil Dimag Mein Kisi Bat Mein Kam To Nahi
Ilm Hunnar Mein Dil Dimag Mein Kisi Bat Mein Kam To Nahi
Puroosho Wale Sare Hi Adhikaro Ki Adhikari Hai

Bahut Ho Chuka Ab Mat Sehna Tujhe Itihaas Badalna Hai
Bahut Ho Chuka Ab Mat Sehna Tujhe Itihaas Badalna Hai
Nari Ko Koi Keh Na Paye Abla Hai Bechari Hai

Komal Hai Kamzor Nahi Tu Shakti Ka Naam Hi Nari Hai
Jag Ko Jivan Dene Wali Maut Bhi Tujhse Hari Hai
Komal Hai Kamzor Nahi Tu Shakti Ka Naam Hi Nari Hai
Jag Ko Jivan Dene Wali Maut Bhi Tujhse Hari Hai
Komal Hai Kamzor Nahi Tu

Another film that is completely women oriented is the 2007 hit Hindi sports drama film Chak De! India ( = Go India!). Sung by Hema Sardesi, Music composed by Salim-Sulaiman to the Lyrics penned by Jaideep Sahni. This movie is about a wrongly disgraced Indian hockey team’s ex-captain who is hired to coach the women’s hockey team. They show the endurance, struggle and determination the team have despite the differences, and in the end win the world Championship. And this song reflects that very essence. Ironically the title song “Chak De Chak De India” and the film’s title itself has since become an anthem song for all sports in India. This movie in it’s entirety itself would be a post for itself.


Lyrics in Romanized Hindi  / Urdu:

Ho Ho Ho O O O Ho O O O...........
Socha Kaha Tha, Yeh Jo, Yeh Jo Ho Gaya
Maana Kaha Tha, Yeh Lo, Yeh Lo Ho Gaya
Chutaki Koi Kaato Na Hai Hum Toh Hosh Mein
Kadmon Ko Thaamo Yeh Hai Udate Josh Mein
Baadal Pe Paanv Hain, Ya Jhuta Daanv Hai
Abb Toh Bhay Chal Padi Apani Yeh Naav Hai
Baadal Pe Paanv Hain, Ya Jhuta Daanv Hai
Abb Toh Bhay Chal Padi Apani Yeh Naav Hai
Ho Ho Ho O O O Ho O O O...........

Aasmaan Ka Swaad Hai, Muddato Ke Baad Hai
Sehma Dil Dhakdhak Karein, Din Hai Ya Yeh Raat Hai
Haay Tu Mehrbaan Kyun Ho Gaya Bakhuda, Kya Baat Hai
Baadal Pe Paanv Hain, Ya Jhuta Daanv Hai
Abb Toh Bhay Chal Padi Apani Yeh Naav Hai
Baadal Pe Paanv Hain, Ya Jhuta Daanv Hai
Abb Toh Bhay Chal Padi Apani Yeh Naav Hai
Ho Ho Ho O O O Ho O O O...........

Chal Pade Hai Humsafar, Ajnabi Toh Hai Dagar
Lagata Humko Magar, Kuchh Kar Denge Hum Agar
Khwaab Mein Jo Dikha Par Tha Chipa Bas Jaayega O Nagar Re Re Re Re...
Baadal Pe Paanv Hain, Ya Jhuta Daanv Hai
Abb Toh Bhay Chal Padi Apani Yeh Naav Hai
Baadal Pe Paanv Hain, Ya Jhuta Daanv Hai
Abb Toh Bhay Chal Padi Apani Yeh Naav Hai
Ho Ho Ho O O O Ho O O O...........

Finally the song “Rupaiya” Sung by Sona Mohapatra. Music composed by Ram Sampath and Lyrics penned by Swanand Kirkire. This song was performed on Aamir Khan’s show Satyameva Jayate. A show that addresses the social issues in India that have not been taken care of by any ruler, leader or police. This song specifically attacks the dowry system in India that has taken the lives of many women and in some case men (reverse-dowry case).


Lyrics in Romanized Hindi / Urdu:

Babul Pyare Sajan Sakha Re
Suno Meri Maiyya
Bojh Nahi Main Kisi Ke Sar Ka
Naa Majdhar Mein Naiyya
Patwar Banoongi, Leharon Se Ladungi
Arey Mujhe Kya Bechega Rupaiya
Ho Arey Mujhe Kya Bechega Rupaiya

Kal Baba Ki Ungli Thaame Chali Thi
Kal Baba Ki Lathi Bhi Bann Jaaungi
Amma Tere Gharonde Ki Chidiya Hoon Main
Dana Lekar Hi Ghar Wapas Aaungi

Jiski Fitrat Mein Hairat Samaayi Nahi
Jisko Daulat Se Jyada Main Bhaayi Nahi
Aise Saajan Ki Mujhko Zaroorat Nahi
Naa Kehne Ka Sunlo Muhurat Yahi
Akeli Chalungi, Kismat Se Milungi
Arey Mujhe Kya Bechega Rupaiya
Ho Arey Mujhe Kya Bechega Rupaiya
Ho... Ho.... Ho..

Dil Se Dil Ke Taar Toh Jude Nahi
Do Rasmon Pe Daulat Ye Kaahe Bahe
Hum Toh Pyaar Ki Khwahish Mein Rishte Bune
Do Rishton Mein Lalach Hum Kaahe Sahe
Kya Shaadi Ke Aage Zindagi Hi Nahi
Jo Shaadi Hisaabo Ki Keval Hai
Aise Saajan Ki Mujhko Zaroorat Nahi
Naa Kehne Ka Sunlo Muhurat Yahi

Subahon Si Khilungi, Ratiya Si Bharungi
Arey Mujhe Kya Bechega Rupaiya
Ho Arey Mujhe Kya Bechega Rupaiya
Ho.. Ho.. Ho...
