10. Yeshu Allah Aur Krishna 

 

Music with a purpose - in their sophomore album Swarathma lends their powerful and unique voice to meaningful causes. This song takes on religious hypocrisy through the eyes of Sant Kabir - Kabir, the saint-poet who spread the message of communal harmony through his couplets and teachings.

The mystic Kabir returns to Earth 500-years later to find that nothing much has changed - and his message of unity is more urgent than ever before.    

 

Lyrics

Yeshu allah aur krishna

(Jai Ho! Jai Ho!)

Yeshu allah aur krishna

Kaun bhagwan hai apna

Phool pe phool chadaade

Diyen pe diyen jalaade

Mala pe maala japna

Maal ko andar karna

 

Sant Kabir ne dekha tha ek sapna sant Kabir ne...

 

(Par maharaj ye Kabir kaun tha?)

 

Arre Kabir kaun tha?

Kabir woh tha jiski vaani thi gyan ki gagariya

Kabir woh tha jisne apne dohon se manavta ka dharm samjhaaya

To aaj usi kabir ke bare mein kuch bolenge,

(Aha!)

Kuch gaayenge

(Oho!)

Aur nachaayenge

(Wah! Wah!)

 

Sant Kabir ne dekha tha ek sapna

Jahan paraya koi nahin, jo bhi hai, apna

Yeh parson ki baat nahin, yeh kal ki breaking news hai

 Ki sant Kabir aayen dharti pe

Jee haan, sant Kabir khud aaye dharti pe

Aur bole ki paanch sau saal mein kuch zyada nahin badla hai

Jeene ke liye jo zaroori hai woh shwaas nahi badla

Poshaak badli hai par insaan nahin badla hai

Darr wahi hai, darr ka samaan kahin badla hai

Pehle chaltithi talwar ki dhaar, ab chalti hai goliyon ki bauchaar

Paanch sau saal mein kuch khaas nahin badla hai

Aur sant Kabir ne kaha

Din mein to sab hain gyani

Aur raat mein chor ki naani

 

Yeshu allah aur krishna

Kaun bhagwan hai apna...aaa...ha...ha

 

Kabir koyi banta nahin 

 

(Wah, kya baat hai maharaj!)

 

Paida hota hai jab baccha

Toh batein saari nahin jaanta

Woh naam nahi jaanta, dharam nahin jaanta

Jaati ya duniyadaari nahin jaanta

Jaise phool ka rass churaale koyi kala bhanwar

Geeli mitti pe lagaade koyi pair ki mohar

Arre ye duniya hai jo banaati hai deewaren dil aur dimag

Par paida toh sabhi hote hain kabir bankar

Par yeh duniya hai jo karti hai dimag ka gud-gobar

Isiliye Kabir koyi banta nahin

Arre sadho

Kabir koyi banta nahin Kabir to hota hai bas

Kabir koyi banta nahin Kabir to hota hai bas
