.. Roots have dried up, branches have wilted .. regard and love is lost ..
Punjab - Current Scenario - Video by Gurdas Mann.I have shared this Video a few days back. I share it again. I have translated a few verses or lines from the Video, which is in Punjabi, to English. Link is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m60bi4SqQ1U .
".. The roots have dried up, the branches have wilted .. burnt the milk in your chest (or breast) due to smoke (smoking) - for women .. which mother's son shall become lion (now) .. no difference between milk and wine (spirits) .. the white man's storm became so big .. colourful Punjab became half blind .. people have forgotten the method (or manners) of love (or regard) .."
There's more to this Video. Time represented by Gurdas Maan takes a young Bhagat Singh into the future from 1917 into 2017 and shows the future martyr the state of Punjab at a later time, a century from then.
Ok now, I think this state (condition) of Punjab was coming. Now if I say something people will not like it. But the truth is that "indifference", "hollow ego", "thinking too much unto themselves", "thinking the others as bloody fools and shodaa (yes, they think that others are no good)", and being "hadda haraam" and "thinking about themselves as superior without any self-earned merit" has done them in. You can add on to this.
Even as way back as 30 years ago people had started saying that people of Punjab are not good. I mean what we conjured up (images) of Punjab were false. People are actually not good. Punjabiyat or dil waalee baat doesn't exist there. It actually exists remotely in some Punjabi hearts (like mine ;-) ) and outside of Punjab. You have heard something like 'dil waalon ki dilli' or something like "dilli to dil waalon ki hai" - I suppose those dilliwalahs are mostly Punjabis, and those Punjabis don't live in Punjab. :-)
Sometimes it might appear that I have drifted away on a tangent. But only those people will think like this (that I have gone off on a tangent) who are still the same hadda haraam, same bloody fools, same work shirkers (WORK SHIRKERS), and think that I "don't know reality" (and their reality is some "illogical" "non-objective" "nonsense").
