Dilli - Delhi Heights - Rabbi Shergill

After Manasi post on the song and our city "Dilli" I strongly feel its appropriate time to post the video of the song.

Rabbi captures my ‘Dilli’ so beautifully in this song!

I think the bottom line of this song is the poet’s desire to figure the philosophy of ‘Dilli’. To quote him “Par kahan hai is shahar ka falsafa”. A cities philosophy is the defined by its people but Dilli’s people are as varied as its different & extreme seasons, it’s almost impossible to figure out one common denominator. Here at one extreme you find people who dream exorbitant dreams and where as others live their lives in indolence. Arrogance of people is apparent “Aur sarhkein theen sab mere baap ki”. He captures the laziness of dilli waala’s with humor talking about the party whose name is “Avaara: Bhatakana jiska vidhan hai, Fursat hai kaam ,Kuchh dhundhla sa jiska nishan hai” Got a smile on my face! How true for so many dilli waala’s.
A very moving line: “Dekhe jazbey kai yahan patthar bante huey” examples flashed in front of me: from “Mandal commission” to “Jessica Lal's murder” case.

Guess what - I could never figure out why I love Dilli either!
“Aur main hun, Tu hai aur hai Dilli bas”

"AJ" ki jana "Main" kaun?

If I exactly put the meaning of the above in my language it will sound rubbish.

Bulla ki jana mein kaun - is spoken by Bulle Shah. What he talks there are two people and not one. Bulla cannot know anything about "mein" at all, unless Bulla dies or finishes. If Mein is there, then Bulla cannot be there and vice-versa.


Plain, Bulla is somebody who is governed by the society, race, creed, sex etc. but there is someone deep inside who is the actual being, who is lost somewhere. That is the actual person, a human being who does not belong to any of those groups. But Bulla cannot know it, Bulla cannot fathom it.

After all Bulla ki Jana mein kaun; AJ ki jana mein kaun.
