Kiran Ahluwalia rocks my socks.

My favorite is Rut Sawan Di

Rut sawan di chund badlan dai mud mud kai nahi aundai
Appan vi es darti utai dairai sada na laundai laundai
A chukiye mithai ishkai dai bol ve maiya

Taithon chori waikh havavan chaid diyan nai aakai
Cheti kar wai rakh leh mainu bukal wich lukakai
Eh bukal pyar di nigi eh wai dil deh buheh khol khol

Chal ve sajana chad ke duniya val asmanai jaeya
Asa di dori wich raj kai pyaar dai hassai paeyai
Asi ishk dai dono rahi wasiyai tariyan dai kol kol

Beautiful seasons don't last forever and neither do we.
So let's not waste this opportunity to explore love.

When you are away the cool breeze touches me playfully.
Come and hide me in your warm embrace.

Oh my love, let's leave this earth and swing so high on love that we
touch the skies and walk on stars fulfilling all our hopes and desires.

So buy her CD god dammit, and comment. Also talk about up & coming artists of any kind you can't get enough of!

Well, it's not like there was a lot of time between your first and second posting for us to all run out and buy the CD, meadesie, sweetie.

I meant comment about the website content, or other artists

meades ji ,

i actually tried to write something last night, but i was just too tired, man.

Kiran will appreciate your sentiments, no doubt. i'll forward this to her...but maybe i'll refrain from telling her where it comes from, to facilitate my talking about her behind her back.

don't trust the lyrics on the CD jacket; i did a translation of "Koka Karva De" because she wanted English subtitles for a video she was doing of that track. not sure what became of the video though, or the translation; i seem to have lost the damn thing. i puzzled over it for weeks, and then one morning during Ramadan after Sahri (the pre-dawn meal), it got it all down, rhymed and metred, no less. "Koka" and "Rut Sawan Di" are the two Punjabi tracks on Kashish; the rest are Urdu, mainly ghazals (the ghazal is a particular kind of poem). give me a couple of hourse (or 24 hrs at most) and let me try to do a better transliteration and trans of "Rut Sawan Di." i'll give you the goods on Kiran as well.

and you liked "Darshan," eh? shaabaash! you have the heart of a true Punjabi.
