Bhaṭakēlā Lyrics by Kanchan & Babla

Here is a popular number that was done by Kanchan and Babla. The beat and melody is quite uptempo and gives a good feel mood, but it takes away from the lament expressed in the song about possibility infedility and domestic abuse:

भटकेला, भटकेला, मोरा बलमुआ भटकेला
(My husband is wandering all over partying)
अरे कइसन बना है ये रंगीला
(How can a prosperous life be begotten from this)

मई न सुनेला, न बाबू के सुनेला
(Mom and dad are not listening to me)
भाई न भौजी न बहन के सुनेला
(Brother and sister are not listening to me)
लाज शर्म सब गहन दरेला
(What deep embarassment is this I fear)

बाहर तो वो रंगरेली मंगावे
(He only asks to party outside the house)
रात और दिन अब मज़ से बितावे
(Day and night I am made to sit mum at home)
घर के मुर्गी दान संदेला
(This is the epitome of disgrace)

लड़की के चाँद को फिर भी शर्मना
(How much can a girl bear)
करके जतन भई कोई कहे न
(What else to do tell me)
झूला झले न जियरा जलेला
(My heart is blasing in anger)

Here is a popular number that was done by Kanchan and Babla. The beat and melody is quite uptempo and gives a good feel mood, but it takes away from the lament expressed in the song about possibility infedility and domestic abuse:

Bhaṭakēlā, bhaṭakēlā, mora balamu’ā bhaṭakēlā
(My husband is wandering all over partying)
Hey, how are you made this colorful?
(How can a prosperous life be begotten from this)

May not listen, nor babu’s sunēlā
(Mom and dad are not listening to me)
Brother, neither eyebrows nor sister’s daughter.
(Brother and sister are not listening to me)
Shame shame all deeply darēlā
(What deep embarassment is this I fear)

Out to those painted raṅgarēlī
(He only asks to party outside the house)
Spend the night and day now with fun
(Day and night I am made to sit mum at home)
Home chicken donation message
(This is the epitome of disgrace)

The girl’s moon is still shy
(How much can a girl bear)
Don’t say that no one says.
(What else to do tell me)
The swing is not jhalē
(My heart is blasing in anger)
