Mora Piya Mose Bolat Nahi-Rajneeti
Lyrics & Chords
“Bha gayi ka koi sautan ooke, mora kachu bhavat nahi….” oh, the laments of an ignored sajani!
I was in Bhopal with my family celebrating New Years Eve 2011 in a restaurant and recognized it as the setting for this song!
Ever since I heard this song from the movie Rajneeti, I have been fascinated by it. This is an old bandish in Avadhi Bhasha, which appears to be in Raag Darbari and has been arranged in a “fusion” style. Aadesh Shrivastava was the music director and the singer (one of his finest creations, in my opinion). Hope you like my attempt!
Here are the lyrics and my translation:
Mora Piya mosey bolat nahi (my beloved doesn’t talk to me)
Dwar jiya ke kholat nahi (he doesn’t open the door to his heart)
Darpan dekhoo roop niharooN (I see the mirror and gaze at my beauty)
aur solah shringar karoonN (I make myself pretty in 16 exalted ways)
pher najariya baitha bairi (he has averted his eyes like an enemy)
kaise aankhiyan char karoon (how can i engage his eyes)
Koi jatan ab kaam na aave (every effort is useless now)
use kachu sohat nahi (nothing interests him)
Humari ik muskaan pe vo to (on my smiles he used to…)
apni jaan lutaata tha (…offer his life)
jag bisra ke aathoN peheriya (he used to forget the world all eight pehars …(divisions of a day))
more hi guun gata tha (… and sing only my praises)
bhaa gayi ka koi sautan ookey (does he like someone else now)
mora kachu bhavat naahi, (nothing of mine interests him anymore)
