chale chalo

Keeping with the current times, here’s a tune that always puts a smile on my face and makes me want to get up and do something! Inspirational in its tone and lyrics, I believe it appeals to all of us differently. Mostly depending on the battle of the moment we find ourselves in the midst of. 

Enjoy, and Happy Friday.

Movie: Lagaan (2001)
Singer: Rahman AR, Srinivas
Music Director: Rahman AR
Lyrics: Javed Akhtar

(Baar baar haan, bolo yaar haan
Apni jeet ho, unki haar haan) – 2
Koi humse jeet na paave
Chale chalo, chale chalo
Mit jaave jo takraave, chale chalo
Bhale ghor andheraa chhaave
Chale chalo, chale chalo
Koi raah mein na thaam jaawe, chale chalo
Toot gayi jo ungli utthi
Paanchon mili to ban gaye mutthi
Eka badhta hi jaawe
Chale chalo, chale chalo
Koi kitna bhi bahekaave, chale chalo
Koi humse jeet na paave
Chale chalo, chale chalo
Mit jaave jo takraave, chale chalo

–CHORUS–
Koi na ab roke tujhe, toke tujhe
Tod de bandhan saare
Mila hai kya hoke tujhe nirbal, tu hi bataa

Kabhi na dukh jhelenge, khelenge
Aise ke dushman haare
Ke ab to le lenge, himmat ka rasta
Dharti hilaa denge, sab ko dikhaa denge
Raja hai kya, parja hai kya, oh oh oh
Hum jag pe chhaayenge, ab yeh bataayenge
Hum logon ka darja hai kya, ho oh oh oh
Baar baar haan, bolo yaar haan
Apni jeet ho, unki haar haan
Ab darr nahin mann mein aave
Chale chalo, chale chalo
Har bedi ab khul jaave, chale chalo

–CHORUS–
Chalaa hi chal, haanf nahin, kaanp nahin
Raah mein ab to raahi
Thakan ka saanp nahin ab tujhe dasne paaye

Vohi jo tera haaqim hai, jaalim hai
Ki hai jisne tabaahi
Ghar uska pachhim hai, yahan na bas mein paaye
Dharti hilaa denge, sab ko dikhaa denge
Raja hai kya, parja hai kya, oh oh oh
Hum jag pe chhaayenge, ab yeh bataayenge
Hum logon ka darja hai kya, ho oh oh oh
Jo hona hai, ho jaave
Chale chalo, chale chalo
Ab sar na koi jhukaave, chale chalo
Koi humse jeet na paave
Chale chalo, chale chalo
Mit jaave jo takraave, chale chalo
Baar baar haan, bolo yaar haan
Apni jeet ho, unki haar haan
(Toot gayi jo ungli utthi
Paanchon mili to ban gaye mutthi)

  1. Hello Rads,

    I have been reading your blog since few months now.I really admire your beautiful thoughts and sentiments.I think if I was articulate like you and had a blog then I would be writing 70% of the things you have written.(i.e.,Your thoughts match my take on most of the things in life to that extent).

    Keep up the good work and keep your posts coming.

    Take care of your knee and god bless.

    Regards,
    Jyothy.

  2. Jyothy: Thank you so much for such a lovely comment, and de-lurking :) It truly is a pleasure to hear from folks who read this blog.

    I am sure if you start writing, you will be awesome at it! All it requires is a start and a valid email id you know! :)
    Yes, please pop in and encourage me, God knows I need it now, with my countdown an dall that *sigh

    Schmetterling: heh, it IS a lovely tune. AK did a good job :)

  3. ab dar nahin man mein aave chale chalo!! thats my fav line. love the bg beat that accompanies that line and what electrifying voice by Rahman.

  4. Ya I love this song too. You know, my husband has compiled a CD of such songs to inspire me when I run on the treadmill. Sigh.

    And I notice that a smoothie helps me too. I do not get hungry at all for a long time and granola bars is another story! I love the ones with loads of nuts.

    Come to think of it, I do not do stats like you coz I hate Math and I feel that will put me off on the whole weight loss thingy. So.

  5. Nandini: haha, I used to hate math too, but having concrete goals does help if you are serious abt it :)
    Sucha sweet hubby you have don’t you? Mine’s quite clueless that I even go to the gym at all!

    Praveen: Yeah :)

    Jira: Absolutely :)

  6. Love this song, especially the way Rehman uses clapping as music. In a moment of inebriation, a few friends and I had remade this into a match-fixing version (“unki jeet ho, apni haar haan”. And..” Hamein paise hee de jaave, chale chalo”) which is sadly not as humorous when you’re sober.

  7. gds: LOL! oo, that sounds like a valid excuse! :p
    Seriously though, it didn’t make sense to list everything everyday and make you guys read it, especially when i asked for help and no one cared replying. *humpff

    Vimmu: arghhhh, hehe, okay, sure. :D

    Naren: LOL. It is it is! :))

  8. SK: lol, as I said, no one was interacting so figured why bare it all :P

    Yea, Ive been there, almost became a member. I think I signed up at dailyPlate as well, but the catch is to maintain the tempo and stay continuous. It isn’t a bad idea at all. I also am not q sure on how to divvy up desi foods which I eat at least 4 times a week.. so yeah.
    What’s your goal? :)

  9. In my defence I have never tried to diet and have no clue what the daily calorie requirements are..been taking inputs for my husband who has been trying to start..and oh I’ve started drinking more water! So even if you’re not getting help, you’ve been of help!!

  10. Giridhar: Why? Coz I didn;t think anyone would be interested! :p

    Gayathri: aw, “forgive”?! Girl, whatever for?! :)

    GDS: ah, now there’s a reason I should unhide them right? :)

I'd love to hear what you have to say, do write back!
