A Twitter Conversation Regarding “Mera Laung Gawacha”
Sometimes I LOVE twitter. A conversation regarding what the song “Mera Laung Gawacha” really meant, got initiated after a friend said that it had sexual connotations. First, lets look at Anjuman swinging her booty on Musarrat Nazir
These are the lyrics of the songs (as I understand them to be, which are very different from some of the lyrics I found online, which do not make any sense to me)
Piche piche aaunda meri chal venda aaieN) - 2 Chear Waliya vekhda aaye ve mera laung gawacha nigah marda aaieN ve mera laung gawacha Dil de pHariyan kyun maarna ae taanay ve milan main aayi tenu roti de bahanay ve roti de bahanay ve) - 2 milna aayi te mil warna rus jaanwaaN gee sada lein minataaN tu karke manayi ve, mera laung gawacha niggah mar da aaye ve mera laung gawacha hoo...aaa... Kaali kaali aayi si main kaliyaaN de haeth di kandiya see ghoont maiN awaaz sun Jaeth di avaaz nu dekhdi - 2 mainue shaq panda main nakh nu phurakh ke dig paiya hoon dungee paieeN ve, mera laung gawacha niggaH marda aaye ve mera alung gawacha
Further additions to this conversations/interpretation to the song are highly welcomed.
The conversation/tweets might be altered for clarity purposes
Me: Im in shock! A friend just informed me that the song “Laung Gawacha” is about losing virginity! Mindfuck completed!
@sepoy: hence the role played by laung in wedding ceremonies etc
Me: With respect to the last tweet, the woman is clearly telling the guy to follow her, makes it clear that she made an excuse to be there & he better deliver.
Me: And also emphasizes that she is impatient, coming from a line of impatient people, and he better get down to “looking for it”. Love it!
@kaalakawaa: I don’t believe it. But the “roti de bahaanay vay” line is quite incriminating.
@dotfuz: so “nose stud” is a metaphor for “virginity”? :S
@zakoota: Also the fact that she’s constantly telling him to keep and eye out for her lost..virginity? Nigah maar da aeen vay.
@kalakawa: We’re taking “kaali” in the song as the Punjabi colloquial for impatience right? Fishy indeed.
Me: @kaalakawaa Haha, I dont know. Also “Kaali Kaali Aiee Se Main KaaliyaaN De Haeth Di” is also fishy! I adore it more now, actually!
@sabaimtiaz: what a great song… And I think everyone uses a version of the roti de bahane vey excuse.
@kalakawa: .@dishoompk’s discovery that Laung Gavacha is about the girl losing her virginity has seriously blown my mind. He’s right too. Listen.
@shahidsaeed: @dishoompk so this means we see teenagers and oldies, girls and old ladies, singing the tune of loss of virginity every wedding @kaalakawaa
.. then the conversation drifted towards a gang of transvestite serial killers, Meera Jee and her WAG status.
Addendum: The original source adds, “The first lyric, mera laung gawacha, why is there so much fuss over just laung, right? Another name for laung is “nath”. In slang when a girl loses her virginity, it is said that her “nath” is removed.
Why is the girl telling the guy with “impeccable hair style” to look at her gait. Why? because she is a woman now, her gait has changed. She is no longer a girl with an awkward waddle but a woman with grace.”
Please contribute to this great conversation!
