Some modern meaningful songs

Most people in their 40s and beyond often complain about Bollywood music of modern times. No doubt most of it is crappy. But once in a while there comes a song that sounds apparently idiotic but on second thoughts makes good poetic sense.

Some that I admire, for their wordings/message – 

Yeh Jo Desh Hai Tera….(Swadesh)
Touching music and penetrating words …connects us to the place we come from.

Khalbali Hai Khalbali…. (Rang De Basanti)
Let yourself become uneasy…restlessness is necessary for changing the odds and for breaking status quo.

Cry Cry, Itna Cry, Karte Hai Kaiko, Itna Darte Hai Kaiko…. (Jhoota Hi Sahi)
Live life the way it comes…don’t sit and cry for every little loss in life…move on and keep flying.

Gun Gun Ye Gana Re….  (Agnipath)
Keep all sadness, trouble, concerns aside …smile and you will feel Life is Beautiful.

Kholo Kholo Darwaje, Parde Karo Kinare …. (Tare Zameen Par)
Do things that ‘you’ like. Don’t allow the world to dominate your free thought. Enjoy life as you like it.

Challa Ki Labda Phire ….(Jab Tak Hai Jaan)
Bit philosophical…make us ask questions like…who are we, where do we want to go…good music too.

Zinda Hai Toh..Pyala Poora Bhar Le…(Bhaag Milkha Bhaag)
Inspirational. Give your best and never look back. Road to success is not easy. Accept it.

There are many more… follow.
