English Translation : Bhaag DK Bose

The popular “Bhaag D.K Bose” has, as I see it struck a chord with youth of this country. Especially because it resembles popular phrases  like ‘Bhosdike’ and ‘Andhi Aayi’. But beyond the pun, the song has an inspirational tone too.

At some point in time every one will be criticized of being useless and good-for-nothing. But you can turn everything around to show the world one day who really you can be. On the whole hats of to lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya who mixed such a theme with some pun so that it would reach out to the youth and masses in general.

Daddy mujhse bola, Tu galti hai meri
Tujhpe Zindgani guilty hai meri
Saabun ki Shakal mein, beta tu toh nikla keval jhaag, jhaag jhaag…
Bhaag bhaag…
Bhaag bhaag…

Daddy said to me, “You’re my mistake”
My life is guilty of (having) you,
In the name of soap, you turned out to be just foam,
run run…
run run…

Oh my god lag gayi
Kya se kya hua
Dekha toh katora
Jhaanka toh kuaan

Piddi jaissa choohaa
Dum pakda toh nikla kala naag
Naag naag naag,
Bhaag…
Bhaag bhaag DK bose, DK bose, D K bose
bhaag bhaag DK “Bose dk” bhaag..

Oh my god, I was damned,
became what from what I was (so bad from so good)
looked like a bowl,
when peeked into, a well..

A tiny little mouse,
when caught the tail, turned out to be a black snake,
snake snake…
run run, DK Bose DK Bose DK Bose
run run DK Bose DK run..

Aandhi aayi aandhi aayi aandhi aayi..
Bhaag bhaag DK bose, D K bose, D K bose
Bhaag bhaag DK Bose DK bose
Aandhi Aayi hai…

storm’s come storm’s come storm’s come
run run, DK Bose DK Bose DK Bose
run run DK Bose DK run..
Storm has come..

Hum toh hai kabootar, Do pahiye ka ek scooter Zindagi
Jo Dhakelo toh Chale
Arre kismat ki hai kadki, Roti Kapda aur Ladki teeno hi
Paapad belo toh miley..
Yeh bheja garden hai, aur tension maali hai.. yeah..
Mann ka taanpoora, frustration me chhede ek hi Raag.. Raag Raag..
Bhaag…..

We’re pigeons, life’s a scooter with two wheels,
if you push, it moves (forward),
our luck is bad, food, cloth and girl all three (basic needs)
are achieved only when we work very hard
this mind is garden, and tension is the gardener,
the tanpoora (musical instrument) of heart, plays just one raaga in frustration,
run run….

Bhaag bhaag DK bose, DK bose, D K bose
bhaag bhaag DK Bose DK bhaag..
Hey Aandhi Aayi Hai Aandhi Aayi Hai
