Dekho Dekho Jang Chhidi hai (w/English Translation)

Translation:

Dekho Dekho jang chhidi hai
Kaheen kisi ke beech
Chal saath chalein dekhein usko
Kaun ooncha, kit neech

Come, come, there’s a fight on
Between Someone, somewhere
Come let us go and watch it now
Judge, who’s higher, how low they fall

Kahaan chhidi hai, kidhar hain jaana
Internet ki aisi hai reach
Dhua utha hai, phoonk chadhi hai
Chal lag jaa uske peech

Where is it fought, where should we go
The internet has such reach
There’s dust and smoke, someone’s blowing on the flames
Let’s just follow them and see

Teeron ke baan uthein hain
Shabdon ki hain baarish…
Dheeraj dhar, ya aanch badha
Ruk, Abhi sirf uthi hai khaarish

Arrows and their bows have been raised
Words fly like rain
Stay patient, or fuel the flames
Or wait, this is still just an itch

“Mera haq sirf mera hai”
“Tu kaun, Tu kya bola”
Badhi aisi tu tu main main
Dekh ke bhi khoon hai khaula

“My rights belong to me”
“Who are you, what did you say?”
The argument grew so much
Even listening in made one angry

Aag babool uth huye sab aaye
Mil gaye jang ke sang
Aav dekhi na taav ab to
Uchhalo jitne hain rang

“Even the bystanders burned with rage
Joined in the battle feisty
They looked neither here nor there
Throwing what (colour) they had

Baat badhi aisi ab bolo
Ki saanch samajh gavaaya
Khel bana aisa tamaasha
Ki sudh budh laut na paaya

“The matter became so big, just see
That truth and sense were lost
the play turned into such a farce
That sense and wisdom could not return”

Jiske jo haath laga
Uth aggan mein daala
Keechad kankad barse it-ut
Uff! Kis se pad gaya paala

“Whatever anyone could find
They threw it into the flames
Mud, stones flew here and there
Uff, how did we engage with this?”

Khel khatam hona to hai re
Paapi pet ghar bulaaya
Aaj khelein hum iski holi
Kal dekhein, gar naya bechaara aaya

“The game has to end soon now
One’s job/hunger calls us home
Today we have singed this one
Tomorrow, let’s see, who the new victim will be”

Dekho Dekho jang chhidi hai
Kaheen kisi ke beech
Chal saath chalein dekhein usko
Kaun ooncha, kit neech

Kahaan chhidi hai, kaise jaano
Vahan kaisen karenge reach?
Dhua utha hai, phoonk chadhi hai
Chal lag jaayein uske peech

Teeron ke baan uthein hain
Shabdon ki hain baarish
Dheeraj dhar, ya aanch badha
Abhi sirf uthi hai khaarish

Mera haq sirf mera hai
Tukaun, Tu kya bola
Badhi aisi tu tu main main
Dekh ke bhi khoon hai khaula

Aag babool uth huye sab aaye
jud gaye jang ke sang
Aav dekhi na taav ab to
Sajta bhang mein rang

Baat badhi aisi ab bolo
Ki saanch samajh gavaaya
Khel bana aisa tamaasha
Ki sudh budh laut na paaya

Jiske jo haath laga
Uth aggan mein daala
Ocche ne keechad phenka to
Kaun tha peeche hatne vaala?

Khel khatam hona to hai re
Paapi pet ghar bulaaya
Aaj khelein hum iski holi
Kal dekhein, kaun bechaara aaya
