An Awakening Call…!

Posted by Rewa Smriti on May 23, 2012

The song is very touching, it makes you feel the pain of women and at the same time it gives women an encouragement and immense valor to face the world. As Shakespeare once said, “the better part of valor is discretion”.  Below is the Rupaiya song from the show Satyamev Jayate, along with the complete lyrics.

Babul pyare sajan sakha re
Suno meri maiyya
Bojh nahi main kisi ke sar ka
Naa majdhar mein naiyya
Patwar banoongi, leharon se ladungi
Arey mujhe kya bechega rupaiya
Ho arey mujhe kya bechega rupaiya

Kal baba ki ungli thaame chali thi
Kal baba ki lathi bhi bann jaaungi
Amma tere gharonde ki chidiya hoon main
Dana lekar hi ghar wapas aaungi

Jiski fitrat mein ghairat samaayi nahi
Jisko daulat se jyada main bhaayi nahi
Aise shaadi ki mujhko zaroorat nahi
Naa kehne ka sunlo muhurat yahi
Akeli chalungi, Kismat se milungi
Arey mujhe kya bechega rupaiya
Ho arey mujhe kya bechega rupaiya
Ho ho ho..
Dil se dil ke taar toh jude nahi
Do rasmon pe daulat ye kaahe bahe
Hum toh pyaar ki khwahish mein rishte bune
Do rishton mein lalach hum kaahe sahe
Kya shaadi ke aage zindagi hi nahi
Jo shaadi hisaabo ki keval hai
Aise saajan ki mujhko zaroorat nahi
Naa kehne ka sunlo muhurat yahi

Subahon si khilungi, Ratiya si bharungi
Arey mujhe kya bechega rupaiya
Ho arey mujhe kya bechega rupaiya
Ho ho ho…

No man is rich enough to buy your free will and dignity. This show is indeed an eye opener for those who in spite of having eyes, do not want to use them and are still struggling to accept the immenseness of women. For centuries, enough time is taken to think of the change, now it is the time to take action and implement it, till it becomes too late.

“Time enough to think of the future when you haven’t any future to think of” ~ George Barnard Shaw

    All social and economic elite people discuss these issues, and some of it is shown in movies, but positive action is hardly ever taken. All young people are in the profession for the prestige and earning power. Most of the women in India are emotional fools and prisoners of the social state. Some of women folks who’ve fought for decades are tired now. Does anyone have any idea how to stop it?

    A marriage may be considered incomplete without dowry.

    Even well-cultured families demand dowry from girls and harass them badly till their last breathe. Groom’s fathers sell their sons like animal. A doctor/engineer/IAS is available for sale(in marriage), jitna ucha bol laga sako laga lo.

    Men who take dowry have no self-esteem and self-Respect!!!! I wish girls should take a step nd refuse to marry a guy who demands dowry.
