This barter of bloody blows will make you cry, you’ll know my name when I fuck you dry.

There have been a lot of requests for the translations for Gangs of Wasseypur lyrics ( Written by apna Varun Grover and Piyush Mishra). So here are the ‘adaptions’ of the lyrics in English (as the team would like to call it).

English adaptations by:  Renuka Kunzru, Neeraj Ghaywan, and Varun Grover.

Renuka Kunzru (with Neeraj Ghaywan) has done the subtitling of both the parts of Gangs of Wasseypur and you have seen her in a cameo in ‘Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na’. She’s the girl (Mala) at the airport the friends’ gang narrates the love story of Jai and Aditi to.

1.     EK BAGAL MEIN CHAND HOGA:

(Lyrics: Piyush Mishra)
Ek bagal mein chand hoga, ek bagal mein rotiyan  I dream of a bejeweled moon, some warm bread,
Ek bagal mein neend hogi, ek bagal mein loriyan  I dream of gentle sleep, and a lullaby in my head.
Hum chaand pe, roti ki chaadar, daal kar so jayenge Dear moon, I’ll cover you with my bread warm
Aur neend se keh denge lori kal sunane aynege And soon, dear sleep, I will sing thee my song.
Ek bagal mein khankhanati seepiyan ho jayngi | My dream sees shells bobbing,
Ek bagal mein kuch rulati sisikiyan ho jayengi  | My dream hears muffled sobbing…
Hum seepiyon mein bhar ke saare tare chu ke aayenge | So I’ll ride my shells to my dream,
Aur siskiyon ko gudgudi kar kar key un bahlayenge |and tickle my tears till they beam.
Amma teri siskiyon pe koi rone aayega | Fear not, mother, your plight will not go unwept
Gham na kar jo ayega  woh phir kabhi naa jayega |The friendly shoulder will stay, and your tears will be kept.
Yaad rakh par koi anhoni nahin tu layegi | But dearest mother, just wish for no doom,
Layegi t phir kahani aur kuch ho jayegi  | Or my simple dream, will be my tomb.
Honi aur anhoni ki parwah kisie hai  meri jaan | Not that I fear ill luck or a doomed end
Hadh se jyaada ye hi hoga hum yahin mar jayenge  | If the worst is death, he is an old friend.
Hum maut ko sapna bata kar , uth khade honge yahin| I guess I’ll charm death with my dream-like riddle
Aur honi ko thenga dikha kar  khil khilate jayenge | And con fate,  with a wink and a giggle

2. Womaniya

(Lyrics: Varun Grover)

Taare jo babuna, tarti babuni | He ogles, stares and waits
Babuna ke hathe na chadti babuni | While she teases, taunts and baits.
Maange jo babuna prem nisaniya | He asks, ‘A loving bite on my chin, dear?’
Bole jo thodi, kattti ho kaniya | So she leans over and nibbles his ear.
Badle rupaya ke dena chawaniya | She gives him a quarter if he asks for a rupee
Saiyaan ji jhapte to ho na hiraniyan | And when he lunges, she flees like a flea
Rah rah ke maange choli bataniyan | Don’t let him play with your buttons, it’s a trick;
Jee mey lukaaye lot lotaniyan | The innocent game will end on his prick

Chaahe muh-jhaunsa jab haath sikaniya | When the bastard tries to warm his hands,
Kandha mein dena ji daant bhukaniya | Play along and bite his shoulder
 Bolega babuna, chal jai-ho Patna, | The fiancé will offer you a ride to Patna,
Patna bahaane wo chaahega satna, | And will see this as a chance to get close…
Dai-ho na pahuna ko ticket kataniya… | Don’t go all the way (to Patna) with him..
Patna naa jaana chaahe jaana Sivaniya… | Go only up to (Distt.) Sivan, dear.

3.     KEH KE LOONGA

(Lyrics: Piyush Mishra)

Ras bheege saude ka ye, khooni anjam teri keh ke loonga | This barter of bloody blows will make you cry,
Teri keh ke loonga  | you’ll know my name when I fuck you dry
Khanjar se doodh gire yaan, ho katle aam teri keh ke loonga | Sweet milk or blood my dagger shall reap
Teri keh ke loonga (2) | You’ll know my name when I fuck you deep
Saason ko saanp sunghan ke, jangli til chatta la ke, keh ke loonga | I’m a  scorpion’s kiss, a toxic lullaby at night
Bichu se hoth katta ke, lori jahreeli gaa ke keh ke looonga | It is I, sir, that has fucked you right.
Panghat ko bechunga main, mar mar ghat ke daam teri keh ke loonga |  Your fancy estate, I’ll sell at a graveyard’s price. Ain’t I nice, I just fucked you twice.
Khuli ho sadke, tambu thane chahe mil vil ho ya baaz mekhkama, mekhamaa aaaa | Hit the road, find a remote hut, prison or fort,
Jisme bachna ho bach le, yee, jisme bachna ho bach le, bach meri jaan teri keh ke loonga | Hide, take cover, run, my man, run, I’ll still fuck you, just for fun!

4.     JIYA HO BIHAR KE LAALA

(Lyrics: Varun Grover)

Jiya ho bihar ke laal, | Long live, Son of Bihar…
jiya tu hajaar saal, |  May you live a thousand years
Tani naachi ke, tani gaayi ke, | So sing and dance
Tani naachi gaayi, sabke mann behlaava re bhaiyya…| May you always sing and dance and make us smile, son.
Tu maati ka laal re laala, Bhaiyya-3| You’re the son of the soil, dear son…
Tohra magahi saan niraala,Bhaiyya-3 | May every breath you take be as majestic as this royal state, dear son…
Tere purkhey jiye andhera,aur tuney jana ujaala…| Your ancestors lived in darkness, but with you, may light be born, my son
Tere god pakhaarey ganga, tere tej se aag jhulasta |May the Holy Ganges keep washing your feet,  I pray that your aura be fiercer than even fire
Tere kandhey chadh ke sooraj, aakas mein roj pahunchta…|May your shoulders be so mighty, my son, that the sun rises by standing over them
Jiyaa tu honhaaaaaaar….| Aren’t you my good son, dear son?
Tani ghoom-ghaam ke, tani dhoomdhaam se…May everyone dance, rejoice and celebrate…
Tani taan kheench ke, taansen, kehlaawa re bhaiyya…. and open their hearts and sing to the skies.
Tani naachi gaayi sabke mann behlawa re bhaiyya,May you always sing and dance  and make us smile, son.
Tani neeke-neeke bol pe geet sunaava re bhaiyya…Tani teekhe-teekhe bol pe dhol bajaawa re bhaiyya…May your sweet words turn into songs…
Tani jhaal utha ke, taal se taal milaava re bhaiyya…may your sharp words turn  into drum beats.
Tani dholak, maandar, matka, chammach, laava re bhaiyya…Pick up any instrument and  join the others …And let the melody flow.
Tani oka-boka-teen-tadoka…
Tani chandan-maati-chauka-kaathi…
Tani oka-boka-teen-tadoka gaava re bhaiyya..We wait for your crazy music…
Tani chandan-maati-chauka-kaathi laava re bhaiyya…we know you will bring us light.
Tani saans fula ke phoonk se dhool udaava re bhaiyya, Only your mighty breath can blow the dust off our lives.
Tani jaan jala ke geet ke tel pilaava re bhaiyya...Only you can re-light our dying lamp.

5.     Bhoos ke dher mein 

(Lyrics: Varun Grover)

Bhoos ke dher mein raai ka daana, | Like looking for a pin in a haystack,
Rang biranga bail sayaana, | Like spotting a smart, colorful buffalo,
Bhoos ke dher mein raai ka daana,
Rang biranga bail sayaana,
Dooje pahar mein toot-ta taara, | Like seeing a falling star mid-afternoon,
Paani pe tirta pakka paara… | Like having mercury float on water…
Naa….
Naa milihey…| You won’t find it…
Naa milihey…naa…| Won’t find…
Na soch, Na khoj, | Don’t even think, Or try…
Ud jayi-ho, jag hai toap…| The world will vanish like a cannon…
Hai kohra rakh sab haath taan, | It’s vague ahead, so stick your hands out…
Imaan na dayi-ho hili-hey…| Just don’t let your faith wither…
Naa milihey…
Naa milihey…naa…
Naa milihey…
Naa milihey…naa…
Batiyaati haathon ki lakeera, | Like fate talking without ambiguity,
Mahal duwaarey, khada fakeera…| Like an ascetic waiting at a palace gate…
Ghaath laga le, Raat jaga le, | By hook or by crook,
Suruj ka sab ghoda bhaga le, baba..| Or by capturing the horses of Sun,
Dhar le chaahe bhoot ki dhoti, | Or by latching on to the ghost’s fabric,
Paa le ashwathhama ka moti, | Or by acquiring the mythical pearl of eternity,
Paani mein…

Paani mein, maati mein, | Or in water or mud,
Loha mein, kaathi mein, | Or in iron or wood,
Jiya ke jod mein, aankhan ki paati mein… | Or in the joint of hearts or crack of eyes,
Aakaas khuley mein, mann ki gaanthi mein…| Or in the vast skies or closed minds…
 Naa… Not a chance!
Batiyaati haathon ki lakeera, | Like fate talking without ambiguity,
Mahal duwaarey, khada fakeera…| Like an ascetic waiting at a palace gate…
Bhari dupahari naachey mayura, | Like a peacock dancing in blazing sun,
Yam se chatur, gaanv ka moora….| Like a village idiot more wicked than the Devil…
Na milihey… You won’t find it.
Hai kohra rakh sab haath taan,
Imaan na dayi-ho hili-hey…
Naa milihey…
Naa milihey…naa…
Naa milihey…
Naa milihey…naa…


6.     Humni Ke…

(Lyrics: Folk/Traditional)

Humni ke chhori ke nagariya ae baba… You have abandoned us, father,
Ki arre baba chhori dihala ghar-parivaar kahun banwa maayi gayili ho…| You have forsaken your town and family,
Ki aaho baba soooni kayi ke gharwa-duvaar, kawan banwa maayi gayili ho, | And now the empty walls of our home echo with loneliness, just like dear mother’s heart
Gaunwaan ke logawa, kehu…kehu se na bolein..|The little one refuses to speak to anyone,
Chhotaka laikawaa, bhora-hi se aankh nahin kholey..|He even refuses to see the morning sun…
Sunsaan bhaiyili dagariya ae baba…|Every road, every possible way is deserted, father,
Ki arre baba nimiya ho gayil patjhaar, kawan banwa maayi gayili ho..| Even the family tree has slipped into a long winter, much like dear mother’s heart.
Kaisa-hoo ae baba, humaraa maayi se milaa da | Father, bring our mother back…
Saparo tajaa ke humro araj sunaa da…| Only you can convey our message to her far away ears.
Chhutka ke chhote-ba umiriya re baba..| I implore you for the sake of the little boy and his tiny life,
Ki arre baba, pari lin hum pauwwaan tohaar kawan banwa maayi gayi li ho..| I do beg you, father, please bring his mother back.
Ki aaho baba soooni kayi ke anganwa-duvaar, kawan banwa maayi gayili ho, | For you have deserted us father, And made our home an empty shell, much like dear mother’s heart.

    Thanks a lot. And please release the film with subs at least in south.

  2. Sagar says:

    I must say…u tried ur best, but with the RUBBISH translation also, could not make my love less for the original lyrics.

  3. Beautiful adaptations…they are equally good poems as well…
    “This barter of bloody blows will make you cry,” ne to dil jit liya

  4. SSD says:

    Awesome!

    For “Saiyaan ji jhapte to ho na hiraniyan”, shouldn’t it be “And when he lunges, she flees like a deer”

  5. Aniirban says:

    Mindblowing!!!!

  6. Deepak says:

    it is tough to write lyrics for a movie of this nature.’bhoos’ is an extreme example of non trivial song writing for cinema.it plays within a limited scope and comes up with apt words.which is why this song as a piece of writing stands out.will never get the due.but not many have got balls to write stuff like this.

  7. ha ha bahut badhia.itz really difficult to transliterate such lyrics.other how will you translate Tani oka-boka-teen-
    tadoka…
    Tani chandan-maati-
    chauka-kaathi…
    Tani oka-boka-teen-
    tadoka gaava re.. One can only translate feeling and a major chunk of that too get lost in translation.nice effort!

  8. Sumit Singh says:

    the english adaptation is pathetic.this is what happens when characters like varun gobar attempts to venture into literature.my sincere advice to mr gobar and their likes is not to touch piyush mishra’s songs and give stupid adaptations and interpretations.varun gobar ji can do what he likes with his songs…no one cares….but he should not strive to explain songs like ik bagal mein and teri keh ke loonga…..when it is amply clear from his pathetic interpretation that he cnt understand it.i hope he sticks to doing what he is gud at which is sucking up to ak.Now…here is my interpretation of the ik bagal mein…song….all u kids pay attention:

    “ Ik bagal mein chaand(utopia) hoga ik bagal mein rotiyan(our bondage to the dictates of blind nature manifested in our hunger for food)”
    Here chaand and rotiyaan are contradictory.because the utopia can never be realized as long as we have to depend on food in order to survive….because the need to survive causes all kinds of inequities and thus undermines our efforts of ever reaching to the perfect state…..the chaand(utopia)
    But why do we need to realize an utopia?why do we need to reach to the moon?…..we need it because mankind is sick of struggle and trouble and wants peace…like in a sleep.This is borne out in the next line….we need to reach to the chaand so that we have: “Ik bagal mein neend(peace) hogi ik bagal mein loriyaan”
    But the above scenario is not possible as long as we r handcuffed by nature to food(which is the origin of all the lusts in man…the principal lust so to say)….but the poet in third line creates…out of anger an impossible image which is…” Hum chaand pe roti ki chaadar daal kar so jayenge”….out of frustration…and making use of poetic license he says…somehow I will reach the utopia(moon)even by being bound to the lust for rotiyaa…and I will sleep there…that is I will find peace…..
    But in the last line the poet acknowledges it is not possible….he may lie on the roti ki chadar on his moon…but the sleep will elude him…the peace will elude him because of the basic dichotomy of man ever realizing a perfect world(moon) as long as he is dependent on food(rotiyaan)…so he says…

    Aur neend se keh denge lori kal sunaane aayenge(sleep will elude us)

    • Renuka says:

      Hi Sumit,
      I just wanted to let you know that you have attributed the current interpretations to Varun Grover… which is inaccurate. I have written them. So please direct your samurai sarcasm towards me.
      As for your interpretations -they make a lot of sense. And for such a complex poem, they’re well stated. I wish I had done a better job. My humble pie tastes quiet nice. Thanks again :)

      • Sumit Singh says:

        btw i dont like the idea of subtitling songs,especially for kashyap’s films.becoz ek toh the songs play in the background when a lot of action is happening on screen,so it will distract the audience.
        secondly,it is generally a difficult task to translate a poem(the task becomes more difficult when the person translating it has not got the feel for poetry in english)…i mean the lines like..make u cry and fuck u dry….does nothing other than rhyme,and to make the audience read them is a crime.

    • nikhil says:

      Bhaiyyaji hum to soch rahe the k mishraji ka taatparya yaha hai k hum ye sab moh maya (bhook pyas…aish-o-aram…)se pare apne kartavya(apne pita ki hatya ka badla) ki or agrsar rahenge…

  9. Sumit Singh Lawyer Zindabaad!

  10. Sumit Singh says:

    Now let us come to the “keh ke loong”a song.this gem by mishra ji is a rather simple affair,quite literal.so varun gobar ji and their likes had no difficulty in translating it.but the only place where the song posed a challenge….they conveniently skirted it.i dont know why this gobar baba is so blatantly defacing piyush mishra’s song.
    the line according to them goes….”.Khanjar se doodh gire yaan, ho katle aam teri keh ke loonga”……but is wrong…the real line is..as sung by sneha…..Khanjar se doodh gire AUR ho katle aam teri keh ke loonga.so there is a continuum…..because khanjar se doodh gire….ho katl e aam.
    now how do u explain this?gobar bhai chaged the lyrics to skirt the challenge…which is atrocious.
    now here i present my interpretation…kid’s pay attention:

    Khanjar se doodh gire aur ho katl e aam…..it means the bloodshed is necessary for survival in this violent world.and thus the poet replaces khanjar se khoon(which logically ought to have been the line) with doodh….so that it metaphorically means the bloodshed(khoon) is what fetches us food(milk) for survival in this violent,revenge driven world…..in a poetic way.

    • Renuka says:

      Again, Keh ke Loonga was subtitled / adapted by me. Am glad you think it passes muster. Believe me I have no intentions of ‘defacing’ anyone’s work [although often that proves to be incredible fun... and you might have some skills there too].
      As for your interpretation of the line… there’s no doubt that the nuance you see [and feel I missed] works on merit. Thanks for pointing that out.

  11. @Sumit, Thanks for taking time out to write your interpretation of the lyrics. Very impressive. But please do understand that ‘varun gobar’ as you prefer to call him, has not written the translations of Ek Bagal and Keh Ke Loonga. Renuka and I have written them while Piyush Mishra explained us what he meant. The things is, art is relative and you can have multiple meanings and interpretations. Please understand that these are translations/subtitles meant for an audience who do not understand Hindi. If I had the liberty of ‘explaining’ them, I would write a 4 page thesis on Ek Bagal alone. Try writing single phrase meanings of lines and you’ll know what I mean.

    Sadly, we always try to find subtle meanings and metaphors basis our conscience, our upbringing and our over all self. While the artists seldom think so much while creating an art form. You have an interpretation which may even be greater than what Piyush Mishra thought of while writing. But why rob off an artists’ integrity or what the artist ‘really wants to say’? We stuck to what Piyush bhai, as we love to call him, wanted to say through these songs. Even the film’s narrative has a bearing on how the lyrics have been translated. And for your varun gobar comment, try writing lyrics like Varun Grover, then you’ll probably know his contribution to the film, and then may be you’ll rethink your comment.

    • Sumit Singh says:

      i had no idea that piyush mishra was there to explain the song line by line..and ur job was merely limited to the translation.i guess i goofed up.sorry

    • Monal Thaakar says:

      umm no way piyush mishra told you this meaning because keh ke loonga doesn’t mean this -_- Anurag kashyap has said this in all his interviews to say that “keh ke loonga” means “i will not stab you from behind” … “it means i will tell you before i kill you everday”

        All have found the explanation good,
        but this fellow has brought out skeleton from your closet for sure!

    • LOL thats true! The guy who said the song was shit and now is back with an intepretation more revolutionary than the poet himself are the same!

      Is this some movie going on or is this real life?!

  13. Sumit Singh says:

    though i hvnt seen gangs of wasseypur.i have been inspired by its theme to write a small poem:

    Jo aa gaye pakad mein gunaahegaar ban gaye
    Baaki ke sab lootere desh ki sarkar ban gaye
    Paigambar kitne aaye….khabardaar kar gaye
    Khoob aish mauz ki aur jahan se guzar gaye
    Inqalaab zindabad ka naara buland kar
    Vyapaari kitne aaye…vyapaar kar gaye
    Sharaafat Aadamiyat vafaadaari ki kaidh mein
    Jo bundh the jinnat woh kab ke nikal gaye

    Sumit, would be good to hear your interpretation on the song “Humni ke chhori ke”….

  16. nirala kumar says:

    ek bagal me chand hota …. probalbly one of the best songs of all times … after gulal … this type of movie and songs .. hatsoff to writter and singers .

  17. [...] Gangs Of Wasseypur- Lyrics translations [...]

  18. I don’t think “Hamani ke chhori ke” is about a mother’s death not a father who has walked out! Can you please confirm/clarify? The words go – “Suna kai ke gharwa kahun banwa mai gayil ho?”

  19. Anjali Singh says:

    the stupidity of the translators of the song “humni ke chori ke”…instead of infuriating me amazes me beyond measure.its a devotional song talking about the separation from the mother goddess…there is no father involved here.”baba”.. used here as a constant refrain is not talking about a father who has deserted!….baba is just a typical bihari refrain which signifies the intensity of emotion for the loss and has no separate meaning. like arey baba..haalat bahut kharab hai.here baba is used merely to intensify the kharab haalat.

    “Ki arre baba chhori dihala ghar-parivaar kahun banwa maayi gayili ho”…the foolish translators give a half translation here…..they say it means:”You have forsaken your town and family”,….but what about…”kahun banwa maayi gaylii ho?” it means kahun(which) banwa(comes from van in hindi which means forest) maayi(mother) gayli(went) ho…to which obscure woods has the mother gone….deserting our ghar parivaar?.thats the meaning fools!

    again,”Gaunwaan ke logawa, kehu…kehu se na bolein”…look at the funtoosh way this line has been translated……”The little one refuses to speak to anyone”,…hahahahaha…. were the translators high on something or what?and these ppl have been asked to provide subtitle?…gaunwaan(gaon..village) ke logawa(..ppl) means the village folks.the village folks r not speaking to each other….. is the meaning here.
    and there is no need to constantly use the refrain father in the translation…for baba means something else…as i have already explained.
    my god..where to begin?the whole translation is a mess.i can only say shame on u india…if that is the grasp of ur native languages.

  20. subtitling/translation is a tough job. when it comes to lyrics of geniuses like mishra and gulzar sb. it becomes even more difficult. their imagination and some words cannot be taken to any other language. nothing can do justice to the feeling in ik bagal mein is in its original form. while what renuka has done can be done in several other ways sicne its an open territory, she still has done a decent job. if the film’s subtitling was done by her, it was pretty good.
    calling varun GOBAR is totally unfair. i believe he was pretty impressive in the lyrics. while keeping bihaar alive and still delivering lines like TERAY PURKHAY JIYE ANDHERA AUR TU NE JANA UJALA, TANI TAAN KHENCH KE TAAN SEN KEHLAWA RE BHAIYYA, BADLAY RUPAYYA KE DE NA CHAWANNIYA is a good job.
    overall, good work guys. looking forward to hearing more.

    Guys, i got to read all your posts today; all hype and hoopla by sumit et. al.
    From all the post and the way you all are trying to interpret the film songs, it is apparent that none of you have ever tried your hand/mind on writing a poem or song.
    Thence all this nonsense.
