Pichla | Agla

From the 1973 hit Hindi film Bobby ( = Nickname for a girl or a boy) Sung by Narendra Chanchal. Music composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal to the Lyrics penned by Inderjeet Singh Tulsi. This song is sung in Sufi / Punjabi lines that express love and heartbreak beautifully. One has to really understand the hidden meaning to enjoy the song thoroughly which I am not an expert to milking it. For now enjoy the song:




Few more tibdits on the song:

1) Sufi is a form of Islamic concept more described as a philosophy. The language is a mix of Urdu, Parsi (Pesian) and Punjabi words but when medled together sound much much better. Its primary used in devotion songs / poems that address God directly. There are quite a few Sufi songs that I love much…but that is for another post.

2) The first two lines of this song are a form of the lines from Bulleh Shah’s poem

“Beshak Mandir Masjid Dha De, Bule Shah Ye Kehta. Par Pyar Bhara Dil Kabhi Na Todo. Is Dil Mein Dilbar Rehta"

(You may break temple or a mosque, but do not break a heart full of love because in that heart resides the beloved).


3) Bulleh Shah is a Punjab Sufi poet and also a humanist and a philosopher from the 17th century. Unfortunately he was mis-treated when alive and even when dead but now is treated with the utmost regards.

4) This was the debut song for Narendra Chanchal and so also was a debut movie for Dimple Kapadia. Both had created quite a sensation in their own ways.

5) Narendra Chanchal continued to sing devotional songs after that esp on Mata Rani.

6) Lyrics in Romanized Hindi / Sufi:

Beshaq Mandir Masjid Todo, Bulleshah Ve Kehta
Beshaq Mandir Masjid Todo, Bulleshah Ve Kehta
Par Pyaar Bhara Dil Kabhi Naa Todo, Iss Dil Mein Dilbar Rehta
Jis Palde Mein Toole Mohabbat, Jis Palde Mein Toole Mohabbat
Us Mein Chaandi Nahin Tolna
Tauba Meri Na Dholna Main Nahin Bolna
O Nahin Bolna Jaa Main Ni Bolna Jaa
O Main Nahin Bolna Jaa, Bolna Main Ni Bolna
Tauba Meri Na Dholna Main Ni Bolna

Aag Se Ishq Baraabar Dono, Par Paani Aag Bujhaaye
Aag Se Ishq Baraabar Dono, Par Paani Aag Bujhaaye
Aashiq Ke Jab Aansu Nikle, Aur Agan Lag Jaaye
Tere Saamne Baithke Rona, Tere Saamne Baithke Rona
Dil Ka Dookhda Nahin Kholna, Dholna Main Nahin Bolna
O Nahin Bolna Jaa Ve Nahin Bolna Jaa
Ve Main Nahin Bolna Jaa Dholna Main Ni Bolna
Tauba Meri Na Dholna Main Ni Bolna
Ve Main Nahin Bolna O Ve Main Nahin Bolna
Ve Main Nahin Bolna Ve Main Nahin Bolna
Ve Main Nahin Bolna Dholna Main Nahin Bolna
Nahin Bolna Ve Main Nahin Bolna
Nahin Bolna Ve Main Nahin Bolna
Nahin Bolna Ve Main Nahin Bolna
