After Censor Board, now Punjab government is planning to become the first state to build a system that will put an end to vulgar and violent songs.
Yes, Punjab's Cultural Affairs Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu recently announced that the state has decided to form a Punjab Sabhyachaar (culture) Commission to keep a check on obscenity and vulgarity, and glorification of drugs and violence in Punjabi songs.
Navjot Singh Sidhu believes that such songs promote sexual harassment against women. He also stated that showing weapons and violence in songs prompts people to commit crimes, and consumption of drugs pushes people into deadly addictions.
After this news broke, I realised that numerous double meaning songs have been composed in the industry since forever. These songs can seriously blow your mind if you try to get to their original meaning.
Now the question is, will these songs also be banned?
Repetition of the line 'Mooh main le, mooh main le' and that too holding a lollipop will for sure tickle dirty minds.
I know, I know... But here the singer is talking about hugs.
People these days, I tell you. LOL
The beginning of this song is like "Din mein leti hai raat mein leti hai, subah ko leti hai sham ko leti hai" I know what you're thinking. But the next line goes like this, "Apne sajan ka apne balam ka, apne pritam ka apne janam ka."
Oh! You still didn't get it.
The singer here is talking about how many times she takes her beloved's name (Naam).
See, told you. It is not your fault.
In this song, the singer says, "Khada hai khada hai khada hai..." You must be thinking how censor board passed this one. But the next line says, "Dar pe tere aashiq khada hai."
In this song, Juhi Chawla asks her co-star Anil Kapoor "Main maal gaadi hu dhakka laga, dhakka laga re dhakka laga." Even a well-mannered individual will understand this song's double standards.
A line in this song says, "Maine jor lagaaya, Haath se bhi dabaaya." Only the singer knew what he is talking about.
The faster you sing these lines, you realise what it means, "Bhaag bhaag DK Bose, DK Bose, DK Bose, bhaag bhaag DK "Bose DK" bhaag..." You know what I mean. Right?
When the song says, "I am a hunter, and she wants to see my gun. When I pull it out, the woman starts to run. She begs me to see it, she begs me to show it, But when I reveal it, she wants to run and hide," the singer is actually talking about the GUN. OK?
Alka Yagnik, "Choli ke peeche kya hai, chunri ke neeche kya hai?" To keep things clear, she clarifies in the end "Chunri me dil hai mera."
"Laila teri le legi, tu likh ke le le.." If you'll judge Laila by this song, you know how much risk she could be in.
So what do you think? Should these songs also be banned?
