Aye Rangrez.....

Before i write ths song u must knw tht its aftr an insanly long time tht i have listen a song which is not going away...which is beating in evry nerve of mine...
its a qawaali from the movie tanu weds manu...a wadali brothers classic....and though i don't knw if i wud b able to do justics..wth it...yet i m just trying hard to complete ths song wth all its meaning....pls read it...its a classic...sufi song...wth typical metaphors and soulful lyrics... its music is awesome and the way these guys have sung it...its just so enriching....i have heard it once....bt their voices are..still ringing in my head.....i felt elated...and drenched in a strange peace....
well its addressed to a dyer the one who dye cloths...the young maiden is all confused...happy...bewitched all at a same time wth the color he has dyed on her duppata...a telling story..wth a typical sufi narration...u knw..it attempts to describe the confusion...state of mind of a person who is drawing near to enlightenment....the one who sees god and is lost in words....
here is the song...

Aye rangrez mere...Aye rangrez mere...,
yeh baat bata rangrez mere..
yeh kaunse paani mein tune kaun sa rang..ghola hain..
kay dil ban gaya sauddai...mera basanti chola hain..

aab tum se mein kya shikhwa karu..
maine he  kaha tha zid karke...
rang di chunari pee kay rang mein..
muhe kapaas pe rang na ruke...
rang itna gahara tera....kay
jaan aur zigar tak bhi rang day....


she asked the dyer why have u color my drape in ths color.. how  have u managed to make ths color whch has dyed me inner most soul.....
how can i complain now...i have asked u myself to dye it in the love of my beloved...now tht color of love has soaked my life and my soul...

Rangrez tune affem kya hain khai...kay mujhse tu yah..pucchay..
kay kaun sa rang...
rango ka karobaar hain tera...yeh tu hi to jaane kaun sa rang....
mera sajjan rang...mera balam rang..
mera ghatak rang...mera anhang rang...
mera bhaag nirang...mera savvan rang....
pal-pal rang de...mere atho pahar manbhavan rang...

she scold the dyer for asking her abt the color of love...she said its u who have dyed it....u have made ths color...u are the one who deals wth.....the world of dyes....u r the one who knw...which are the color i wud like to see on my drapes....ther are colors....colors which remind me of my...supream lover...there are colors of my beloved....color whch brightn my home...made me advanturous...a color whch dye my fate...every season of my life....
i wish u can color each moment of my life in these colors...evry single minute of my day....

eik boond ishqqiya daal koi tu....
mere saato sumander jaye rang...
meri had bhi rang....sarhad bhi rang... 
behaad bhi rang....anhaad bhi...rang..
mere mandir-masjid mahkaad rang....
rangrez mere do ghar kyoun rahe eik hi rang mein dono ghar rang....
pal-pal rang de...rang de..
nahin pee har ka aagan rang...
rang de rang de...mere atho pahar manbhavan rang...

she pleaded wth him...., saying u must just put one tiny drop of love and it wud make a dye which wud color my deepest being....the metaphor of seven seas are to describe....the wholeness of universe...next she says tht ths color of love wud dye...my limits...the limits in which ths society behold me...color my imagination beyond ths limit.....color the one self inside me who is beyond boundaries....and the one who is beyond sound..... color my faith my temples my mosque....even color the wine house of my devotion....why shud u color seperatly for ths world and the world beyond...just color my two worlds in tht single absorbing color of love....color my lover and his home too...i wish u can color...all minutes and seconds of my day in the colors i desire....


neende rang de...karvat bhi rang...
khwaboon mein pade salwat bhi rang...
yeh tu hi hain....hairat rang...de
aa dil mein smma aur hasrat rang de...
phir aa har waslat rang de....
tu aa na sake to furkat rang de....
dard-i-hizran liye..dil mein main..
zinda rahau...zurrat rang de...



she wishes him to color her sleep...even the sides she takes in tht sleep...evry dream in her eye shud be colored in the love of the divine...even ths surprise she feels at the presense of tht beloved in her heart shud be colored...evry wish in her heart...shud be colored too...she entreats the dyer to go beyond her heart and color...evry second of union wth beloved...and if he cann't do tht thn she entreats him to color the seperation from tht beloved....the world between union and seperation...shud be colored in one single tone of love...just love/...
she says...oh dyer( who actually is the lover and also the divine) color my courage..ths audicity whch help me to take all ths pain of seperation and yet breathe life....color ths insane will of mine...

rangrez mere tera kya hain asal rang..?
aab tu yeh dikhla de....
mera piya bhi tu...meri sez bhi tu....
mera rang bhi tu....rangrez bhi tu..
meri nayyiyan bhi tu...majhdaar bhi....tu..
tuhjse mein duubo..tuhje mein ubaroon...
teri har eik baat sar ankhon pe...
mera malik tu...mera sahib tu...
meri jaan meri jaan tere haatho mein..
(
my favourite line...)
mera qatil tu mera munsif tu...
tere bin kuch soojhe na...
tere bin kuch soojhe na..
meri raah bhi tu...mera rahbar tu...
mera akbar tu..mera sarwar tu...
mera mashriq tu..mera magrib tu...
waahid bhi mera....murshid bhi tu...
ab tere bina jaon kahan...jaon kahan...


oh dyer she says..tell me who u are...wht is the actual..the true color of u......u are my beloved and u are the meeting place of tht beloved too...u are my dyer and also the color u wud dye...u are the boat whch wud take me beyond ths virtual world...ths transisitory..world...bt u are also the middle of tht ocean where i wud both drown and resurrected...u are my god...my master....my friend....my owner...
she says u are my life and my life is now in ur hands..
u are my murderer and u are lawyer as well...
i cann't think anythng else wthout u....no thought bt u...
u are my path and the companion on tht path too...
u are my east and u are my west too..all directions go to u..and start from u...
u are my savior and u are my saint too...
i don't knw where i wud go wthout u...
i dont have anywhere to go...

Aye rangrez mere..aye rangrez mere..
yeh baat bata rangrez mere...
kay dil ban gaya sauddai..mera basanti chola hain...


oh dyer pls tell me in wht kind of water u have mixed ths strange color which has made my insane heart all saoked in the color of divine....

ps:- i heared ths song yestrday...by chance...it just made me hopeful and happy...if u like it do write abt it....tell me abt the composition anythng...the sufis...have were the people who have immortalize the concept of love...bt there was not a virtual love their was a love intense....pure...one wch brings togather all pieces of one's soul in one overpowering unity...the wahadat ul wajud...which says the world is one wth being...one wth god the divine...who is evrythng and evryone...nothing escape his presense...he surpasses all and in the moment of his glory he let us see the he is not sepertated bt he is  breathing inside us....in us..wth us...
i hope i done justice to ths beautiful composition...!!!

how i wonder why i am still so thrilled to my bone by this song.............amazing............amazing!!!!

i watched this movie for the first time today............i know i am like quite late for that but i just watched it to hear this song................and was disappointed with the singer who have sung it...!!! the idiotic people have just used a small bit of what is sung by the wadali brothers!! but the pieces they have used are wonderful.........slow and totally different!!!

god i am just so in love with this song, and while watching it remembered the first time when i heard it....it was funny, but i love it...........so much!!!

I know... and the only complaint i have is that it ends... though i've been able to solve the problem by listening to it on repeat. and the lyrics... It gives me goosebumps every time...thanks for sharing this one.

Rangrez is one of the best songs ever. It has me in this spell that I cannot stop listening to it. It has been months now. Thanks for your wonderful explanation. Loved it. The song stirs emotions in me that I never knew existed.

Hey... Its been more than 5 months now and i am badly addicted to this song.. My days are incomplete when I don't listen to Rangrez and I am always listening to this song.. I dont know why.. I JUST LOVE THIS song..!!! I am wondering whats wrong with me... 5 months and one song!!

hey its gud to know tht u know its same with me.....i have to hear this song at least twice a day or i feel like i m dead...!! its like an addiction and it just keeps on rising with every moment..i m happy there are people like me too....nice to see ur comment...!!!!

ya u are right....its a blissful song!! anhaag means when the internal, while waslat means union, sarwar means the guide. magrib and mashriq actually are two area in arabic lands...!

rahbar is the one who bless ur paths and murshid is a spiritual master....!!

i am so glad u like this song its my dose i have to hear it hundred time evryday to get myself back on ground...!!!

Listening it x times feels like x crystal(s) of sweetness in it. Meanings are beautifully described, could have be better if you could write the meaning of words like anhang, waslat, rahbar, sarwar, magrib, murshid etc. Thanks.

I simply love this song.....



Its one of my fav....

beautiful song,beautiful lyrics,beautiful meaning...

i wish i cud do better wth the explaination...!!
