I recently heard a few funny but quite apt shers on the attitudes of the present generation, in a recent gathering at a friends place one evening.
I post them herebelow as I heard them in the local flavours– Hindi or Punjabi,alongwith my passable translations, so that friends who are not good in these languages,can also enjoy them :
ATTITUDE : 1 : TIME PASS
Hum unn sey pyaar kartey hain
Woh hum sey pyaar kartey hain
Naan woh hum sey baat kartey hain
Naan hum unn sey baat kartey hain
Bus ek doosrey ko dekh kar
Time pass kiya kartey hain.
I love her
She loves me.
Neither I talk to her
Nor she talks to me
We just keep looking at each other
And play “Time Pass”,you see !!
ATTITUDE : 2 : PEOPLE ALWAYS TALK
Ki kariyey lokaan daa
Har gull noon lok jhamela kehndey nein
Jey SMS naan kariyey, taan kanjoos,
Jey kariyey,taan vehlaa kehndey nein !!
What shall I say about people
They have names for all us guys
If I don’t send an SMS,
They call me a miserly person
If I keep sending SMS
They term me an idle boy !!
ATTITUDE :3: HER WOW STYLE
Nakhraa aap ka tauba tauba
Kyaa aapka style hai
Message kabhi karna nahin
Shor machaa rakha hai–
” Hammarey pass Mobile hai !!”
What to talk of her attitude- wow
What to talk of her fancy style-wow
She never sends a message ever,
But shouts to let everyone know:
“Hey ! I have a new Mobile
A new Mobile !! ” Wow ! Wow !!
ATTITUDE :4: SECRET PACT
Uss ney mehndi lagga rakhi thi
Humm nein uss ki doli ko uthaa rakha thaa
Humm ko maloom thaa ki
Woh bey-wafaa niklegi,
Issi liye humm ney uss ki
Chhoti behn ko patta rakhaa thaa !!
She had applied henna on her hands
She was bedecked as a lovely bride
I was one of the bearers of her palanquin
I knew she would ditch me and take me for a ride
So I had planned a stand by strategy,
Which you may term as sinister-
I had made a secret pact you see
To elope with and marry the bride’s younger sister !!
