The Meaning of the Gulami Song..

Friends..this is the most difficult song i have ever heard..i ve been hearing this one for years..but now i got the meaning..

"Zihaal-e-miskeen [Not Masti] mukon ba-ranjish, bahaale hijra bechara dil hai"
Zihaal= notice
Miskeen= poor
mukon= do not
ba-ranjish= with contempt, with malice
bahaal= fresh
hijra= separation, Judai

In essence, the line means:"Judai ke ghamon se tazaa is dil ko aisi ranjish bhari nazron se mat dekho"

Well...the mukhada of this song has been borrowed by legend Amir Khusrau's composition.

You can listen the original one in the form of Qwaalli beautifully sung by Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.
