Ankhiyaan -'Eyes' (Poem in Punjabi)

'Ankhiya' (Eyes) is a poem I stumbled upon on Manpreet's blog Kaaghaz de Kujh Purzei which lists her poems. Any poem's significance is dependent on the perception and mood of the person reading it. Moreover the reason why poets use a tough or deep language to describe even simple things in life is to tempt a person to look beyond the words and their meanings. And when one is caught in this temptation the words don't remain mere words but take the shape of constant stream of pictures in the mind.
Two things caught my mind when I read this poem, first the ease of the words which I understood unlike her other poems which demand knowledge of punjabi vocabulary. The second was the simple monotony which makes the poem go on and on into infinity. What I still fail to understand is why the thinking of eyes always remind us of a female character. I think this poem can be transposed on a male character too with ease!
The music is simple and monotonous. Being a beginner in guitar I have used simple chords G C and D. The trio works for most of simple songs although the strumming pattern can be varied as per the need.

Nothing more to say...

hey man...
it sounds real cool, and i think you guys should collaborate and write songs...

am not kidding... punjabi music has taken the world by storm, so think about it seriously, approach a music guy with some songs, get some local guys to play other instruments and do it...

this is cool, parry... sounds cool

Imp's Mom said...

Great music and sounds really cool..a little monotonous, but great nonetheless..

you should put this up on youtube.

PARRY said...

mampi : shall i say you have made my coming days.:)

oreen : thanks for spending time and listening ,i can really see the enthusiasm in your words. well right now i m just doing solo and i have not performed anywhere as i feel there's still hard work to do and its really not easy to find guys who are of the same type.
And collaboration? well! will get back to mampi. Some royalty issues you know. (hehehe..)

jasdeep : Thanks for the encouragement. Album is still quite far away as I am just a beginner. I have posted my songs on sounclick though. (www.soundclick.com/parry)

life begins : Thanks, yes will surely like to form a group or something and yes more instruments and more different chords means more good music. My best wishes to you too.

indian home maker : Rabbi shergill is my fav too. He has a way with his lyrics and music. Loved his 'Ballo' song so much that it was on the repeat mode on my mobile for the whole week.Will think of posting it on youtube. Thanks for listening.

Dhindsa : I would say that the poem was so good that i was compelled to make something out of them. Thanks for the blessings. Take care you too.

Imp's mom : Thanks, yes its monotonous and the only consolation is that none of the other lines get repeated. :)
wil think of posting it on youtube.

Majaz said...

EXSENO said...

I minute I heard the first few words I knew that I would like it. Well I didn't like it I loved it.
No I don't understand the words but when it come to music and song you don't have to understand the words to appreciate it.

It's lovely.

~nm said...

Simply beautiful! Although I don't understand Punjabi but I just love the way you have sung it! And you have such an awesome voice!!

Keep it going!!

kiran grewal said...

roop rai said...

omg! it's such an honor for mampi. u've done brilliantly!!! love your voice and the effort that went into it ... although i'll agree with imp's mom that it is monotonous but u already explained the reason for that.

i wish you the best of luck and hope you'll go past those three strings on your guitar. :) i can't wait for you two to chalk out an album together.

How do we know said...

OMG!! Kamaal Kitta je!!! Guitar te vi, sur naal vi, aur sab to vaddi gall, jo cheez akhar aakhna chahnde si, o ho cheez mausiki vi aakhdi hai.

PARRY said...

majaz : Thanks for listening. More great is mampi's gesture of putting me in the limelight. :)

exseno : Yes music has no language. Thanks for liking the song.

nm : thanks for listening. come on Awesome?? I am flattered. :D

kiran grewal : Thanks for spending time and effort on listening. I am encouraged.

roop rai : thanks. i feel i am still a learner but with the support i m getting from u guys surely the journey will be easy now.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
