Watch the whole video and read up on the inspiration, the lyrics and the people behind this song!

Pinjra - Shantanu Moitra at Coke Studio @ MTV

 

Kabir Das’ philosophy & ideology was ahead of its time & remains valid for life as it is today. Swanand Kirkire in fact refers to Kabir as the rockstar of Indian music and has always wanted to do a song that would talk about these age-old gems in a contemporary manner.

 

This song is Kabir in philosophy but has a very modern edge. It talks about how the human soul is plagued with evils like greed, fear, resentment and jealousy. But when these feelings get the better of you, one should just give the Almighty a missed call and the connection would be instant! This haunting melody is Swanand’s homage to Kabir.

 

Read the lyrics here:

 

 

 

Sab par teri saahebi, tujh par sahib nay

Nirakaar nirgun tuhi, aur sakal bharmay

 


Hoye amaar kankher koloshi

Gayche jole te bhashi

Hoye amaar kankher koloshi

Gayche jole te bhashi

Majhi re tor noukar dhewla giya re

Majhi re tor noukar dhewla giyaa

 


Hey panch tatva ka bana pinjra, pinjre mein maina

Panch lootere ghaat lagaye ghabraye maina

Hey panch tatva ka bana pinjra, pinjre mein maina

Panch lootere ghaat lagaye ghabraye maina

Baja le anhad shunnya ke sannate mein

Dhadkan ki tirtaal

Simarle sahebji ka nam ke duniya

Maya ka janjal

Sahib mera ek rakhwala re

Sahib mera deen dayala re

Sahib mere tan pe dushala re

Sahib mere tan main ujala re


 

Panch tatva ka bana pinjra, pinjre mein maina

Panch lootere ghaat lagaye ghabraye maina

Baja le anhad shunnya ke sannate mein

Dhadkan ki tirtaal

Simarle sahebji ka nam ke duniya

Maya ka janjal

Sahib mera ek rakhwala re

Sahib mera deen dayala re

Sahib mere tan pe dushala re

Sahib mere tan main ujala re


 

Sahib tere ghat bheetar hi dhooni ramaye baitha sadhu

Sahib tera antarman na roop rang nirguniya saadhu

O majhi re, oh majhi

Majhi re tor noukar dhewla giya re

Majhi re tor noukar dhewla giya re

Majhi re tor noukar dhewla giya re

Majhi re tor noukar dhewla giya

 


Sahib tere ghat bheetar hi dhooni ramaye baitha sadhu

Sahib tera antarman na roop rang nirguniya saadhu

Sahib nahi taat maat na bandhu sakha sakhi saiyaan saadhu

Sahib nahin jaat paat na dharm kaaj kirtaniya saadhu


 

Sahib mera nirmal jal jaisa

Sahib mera behti pawan jaisa

Sahib mera neel gagan jaisa

Sahib mera bhola man jaisa


 

Uss pe kyun jhooth fareb ka

Maas chadhaye rang rang ki khal

Aur phir moh maya ke mele mein jaa naacha vikat kankal

Sahib mera ek rakhwala re

Sahib mera deen dayala re

Sahib mere tan pe dushala re

Sahib mere tan main ujala re


 

Sahib koi sur na taal bas naad naad anhadiya saadhu

Sahib toh hai prem ka tika byopari kanpatiya saadhu

O majhi re, oh majhi re

Majhi re tor noukar dhewla giya re

Majhi re tor noukar dhewla giya

Majhi re tor noukar dhewla giya re

Majhi re tor noukar dhewla giya

Sahib koi sur na taal bas naad naad anhadiya saadhu

Sahib toh hai prem patti ka vyopari kanpatiya saadhu

Sahib  meri meera sur kabeera aur bullehshah saadhu

Sahib toh hai paigambar nanak Buddha aur isa saadhu


 

Sahib mera gunje azzano mein

Shabad tan khul jaye taano main

Saheb mera shoon sifar jaisa

Sahib mera jaisa main waisa

Maina tu pankh pasar ke udd ja duniya bhawsagar ke par

Yahan pe bhoot prem ki nagri hai mere saheb ki sarkar

 Sahib mera ek rakhwala re

Sahib mera deen dayala re

Sahib mere tan pe dushala re

Sahib mere tan main ujala re


 

Panch tatva ka bana pinjra, pinjre mein maina

Panch lootere ghaat lagaye ghabraye maina

Baja le anhad shunnya ke sannate mein

Dhadkan ki tirtaal

Simarle sahebji ka nam ke duniya

Maya ka janjal

Sahib mera ek rakhwala re

Sahib mera deen dayala re

Sahib mere tan pe dushala re

Sahib mere tan main ujala re


 

Sahib mera ek rakhwala re

Sahib mera deen dayala re

Sahib mere tan pe dushala re

Sahib mere tan main ujala re


 

Sab par teri saahebi, tujh par sahib nay

Nirakaar nirgun tuhi, aur sakal bharmay
