Musing 56: English words, Badrinath Yatra (1967)

Just in case people think that use of English words in songs is a new phenomenon. I take you back all the way to the theater days. Her is a song written by the famous playwright Agha Hashr Kashmiri for the drama Silver King:

kyon chhipaayee laa de bhaee Khaalis whiskey
rang ho jis men Miss kee
aur lazzat ho jis men Kiss kee


which loosely translates as


O brother, bring it, why have you hidden pure whiskey
which has the color of a Miss
and which has the bliss of a kiss

Now you know!


 Listen to Badrinath (1967)
