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

This is a song about the changing times. It’s a song that perfectly captures the dilemmas of life. It talks about the pressures of everyday life & the everyday questions none can escape. But it’s also about staying rooted, learning from life’s lessons and staying focused on your dreams. Zamana Kharab Hai, like life, is about never giving up. 

 

To do justice to its depth of meaning, the song has a simple arrangement with a strong focus on the lyrical content.  This song also showcases a beautiful fusion between Bhanu Pratap’s Rajasthani Sufi vocals and Dominique Cerejo’s jazz-pop vocals.

Here's the lyrics of this song:

 

Bade Bhagya, Manush Tan pawa

Sur Durlabh saddh granth nagawa

Sadhan dham moksh kar dwara

Paay na jenhi parlok sawara

 

Yeh zamaana kharaab hai,

Miyaan kaisaa mazaak hai,

Bande bande mein daag hai,

Miyaan kaisa mazaak hai,

Main naseehat kya doon,

Sab toh hain sayaane yahaan,

Phir bhi saaf saaf keh doon,

Sab kuch hai la la la la,

 

Andhi haveli hai dil, dil binaa pyaar ke,

Pinjar sa dheh jaaYehgaa, zindagi talaashtaa phirtaa kahaan

 

Yeh zamaana kharaab hai,

Miyaan kaisaa mazaak hai,

Bande bande mein daag hai,

Miyaan kaisa mazaak hai,

 

Main hidaayat kya doon,

Sab hain manmaane yahan,

Sau ki ek baat keh doon,

Sab kuch hai la la la la,

 

Hai zindagi ek til, rooh ke gaal pe,

Manzar sa beh jaaYehgaa, zindagi sambhaaltaa phirtaa kahaan

 

Yeh zamaana kharaab hai,

Miyaan kaisaa mazaak hai,

Bande bande mein daag hai,

Miyaan kaisa mazaak hai,

 

Baat baat pe leke ballam kaahe ko ad jaaYeh,

Aisaa neik kamaaYeh kyun duniyaa mein khalal pad jaaYeh,

Tujh mein rehne rab aaya toh beghar kyun kehlaaYeh,

Murakhpan mein kyun pagle tu aaj ko aag lagaaYeh,

 

Saari padhaaee kis pipal ke ped pe taang aayaa,

Baant batore ke haaraa tab jaanaa kya paaya,

Kyun befazooli mein mann, mann chalaa haar ke,

Niras hi reh jaaYeh na, tu khushi talaashtaa phirtaa kahaan

 

Yeh zamaana kharaab hai,

Miyaan kaisaa mazaak hai,

Bande bande mein daag hai,

Miyaan kaisa mazaak hai,

Main vasihat kya doon,

Sab mitaane aaYeh yahan

Phir bhi ek raaz keh doon,

Sab kuch hai la la la la

 

Miltaa nahin aadmi, laakhon deedaar mein,

Jhonke sa beh jaaYeh ga, khudh ko bigaadtaa phirtaa kahaan

Yeh zamaana kharaab hai,

Miyaan kaisaa mazaak hai,

Bande bande mein daag hai,

Miyaan kaisa mazaak hai,

 

Yeh zamaana kharaab hai,

Miyaan kaisaa mazaak hai,

Bande bande mein daag hai,

Miyaan kaisa mazaak hai,

 

Sochein…Sochein…

Yeh Zamaana Kharaab Hai

Sochein…
