This emotional song captures the heart-wrenching feelings a Daughter experiences in the lead up to her wedding. The feelings of looking out from her parent’s home and seeing the last few days of her views from her window knowing she’ll be leaving these views, her childhood home and childhood memories behind. The beautiful lyrics have been penned by the famous Punjabi poet Chan Singh Jandhialvi who now resides in the UK.
Oh my Lord, so cruel is the twist of fate, Who has given birth to her, but who then takes her away?
My beloved Father, from your home which is a palace, Seven-coloured pigeons coo and sing.
My beloved Father, from your home which is a palace, Your precious Daughter is leaving, for far away lands.
My beloved Sister-In-Law (Brother’s wife), Upon my leaving, will drink milk.
My beloved Brother, Upon my leaving, will walk me forward and hand me over to my new family
Mother & Daughter will hug and embrace and meet for the final time, All four walls of the house will shake with the overwhelming emotion and sorrow
