I admit with great shame that I hadn’t heard this song any sooner. On the phone, my sister insisted I search for it on Youtube. I don’t know quite know what to make of it. I find it offensive and hilarious all at the same time. Not to mention the translation-defying lyrics:
Tere ghar mein bartan-shartan maanjhti hoon mein barabar,
Tu kabhi toh, mere dil ke ghar mein pocha karde aakar.
There’s something about the video that annoys me. The whole deal with a woman doing everything for the man who doesn’t seem to give a rat’s ass about her. Not to mention her scrubbing his feet and begging him to love her. Class angle, gender angle – this covers it all! And yet, I have to wonder if I am losing my sense of humour. Either way, for some reason – I’ve decided to like this song. Btw, isn’t Sunidhi Chauhan simply wonderful?
