Kudi Saturday Saturday kardi rehndi hai. So, what’s your problem jackass?




 I am not even a hard core feminist but even then this song is bothering me on so many levels that I can't help but react. You call this music?

Mediocre offensive novelty crap trying to masquerade as rap.
This is how absurd this song sounded to me...
  •  Pehlan taan kudi ne Ludhiana vi ni tapya si  (Meaning that The girl had never stepped foot outside her hometown) So what is ur problem? It’s not like u were the official sponsor of her out-of-Ludhiana trip. 
  • Poochey Bina gharon bhar pair vi ni rakhya si     (Never had she done anything that her elders did not approve of) So I am guessing your elders are totally cool with you writing such a demeaning sad nonsense (you like to call a song) 
  • Jaddon di madam ji sheher which aai bas party dian gallan kardi rehndi hai (Once a shy timid girl dares to speak of parties now) Last I checked, it was still a democracy and we were still allowed the right to speech.  
  • Kudi saturday saturday kardi rehndi hai(All she cares for are the saturday nights) Count your blessings that she does - thanks to her - you get to earn your bread and butter.  
  • Sarojini ke kapde pehen ke jaati madam disko (She buys her clothes from a flee market)Lol is that supposed to be an insult? I am sorry to burst your bubble Mister rapper but not all of us walk around in Prada. Welcome to the real world. 
  • Vip mein complimentary drinks bhi chahiye isko (She insists on the complimentary drinks when in a club)Well, she can insist on complimentary poison as long as she wants it and the club is offering it. You have nothing to worry, i suppose. 
  • Isko Gadi chahiye lambi, isko music chahiye loud (She likes cool cars and loud music) Why? if u can prefer expensive clothes to ‘Sarojini ke Kapde’ ..Doesn't she have the liberty to like expensive cars? And as far as the loud music is concerned if you hate it so much, don’t come to the club next time, go to a library instead, Pin Drop Silence, my friend. 
  • Ye jaati mehnge club mein jahan pe hota dhang ka crowd (She prefers an elite place and nice crowd)Really sorry, but we did not know that you prefer cheap crowd instead. 
  • Ludhiayane se aayi ladki university padti hai (She is a small town girl in a big city)Now what’s wrong with this? Like being from Ludhiana is supposedly a crime? Delhi University is one of the premier institutes of India after all, where else should she go, to the institute where they teach how to degrade women. 
  • Kehti to hai student hai But I doubt. (She claims to be a student but I doubt)So who asked you to become ACP Pradyuman? 
  •  Mundeya de palle ni tu chhaddeya ni kakh  (She makes the guy spend)It’s not like she put a gun to your head and asked you to offer her that drink. Here’s a tip: if you don’t have the money, don’t offer to buy her a drink. 
  • Aati Honda mein jaati tu Audi mein Khisak (She knows more than one guy) Lol if u can come with Tina and hit on Meena all through the evening well so can she. Nothing personal buddy!
  • S*** S*** Baby what the fuck? (I am sorry despite the best of my efforts to get it, this one sentence did not make any sense to me, so cant translate)But on a Serious note baby what the fuck? I truly hope you can rap better next time. Look up your dictionary there are more words in the English language than s*** and f***. 
  • Sheher aake baby baby kardi, tu pind which bebe bebe kardi hundi si (She uses the term ‘Baby’)Excuse me? Did you just not use the same Baby term more than once in your own song too. Is the kettle calling the pot black?
I can go on but I think I have made my point pretty clear. 

When Honey Singh came up with ‘Aina vi na dope-shope marya karo’ , that song at least had a well-meaning message in it. So even if it bordered a little on the boundary of offensive, nobody seemed to mind it. But you on the other hand, seem to be just tapping the formula that Honey Singh created with Dope-shope but the sad part is that there is no message (I mean not even for the heck of it), except that you objectify women in a very very unwelcome way and that’s not done dude.

@Lyricist
Lets say shez the cheapest,sluttiest and most immoral woman you ever came across,,Tere Baap ka kya jaata hai velle aadmi!?

Jay Singh said...

Sadly it's not his fault entirely .. almost all my friends have played this song in car or some house party. I guess the question is why am i including others subjected to listen to this song including you? I don't have a clue to be honest about entertainment industry .. but i suppose there has to be some Sovereign Governing authority(Pvt. or Gvt.) that releases or passes such tracks to general public. This track is being played .. so i guess our esteemed people don't find it offensive.
And just between you & me .. can you name me any punjabi song which isn't about kuddi aur punjabi tashan ? I guess only few might be there that actually are genuinely nice songs( I am not implying all Rap or Hip-Hop songs are bad)or i should say genuinely well written songs.
But you raise a good point .. this song does make me wonder .. is this what we men of india actually are in terms of our women and also it's not always about respecting women .. it's about respecting both the genders. Sadly a lot of women really are big pottymouths .. who insult guys badly .. and vice versa. We should think of making things equal. But that is another topic of discussion overall.
PS: Your Sense of humour is great, some interpretation of his lines were spot on! And made me laugh like a baby.
:-)
I hope i didn't cross my limits.
Thank you for sharing your views Ms.Nag.
Regards- Jay S.

Hey man, nowdays, people are actually singing songs about these things. You don't have to get offended for it. He isn't singing about your sister right? And you know how proud punjabi's are about their life right? So just sit back, enjoy the songs....If you Don't like it, don't listen to it. Keep it simple.

@Kanisth
I welcome all opinions on my blog,, (as long as they are nicely put). And yours for sure was a well phrased one. So even though I don't agree with it, I have no issues publishing it.
However, I do have one question, what does this song have to do with punjabi pride? Punjabi culture is not about degrading women,, I am a half punjabi myself..
n secondly I am not offended coz he is singing about my sister. I am offended coz he is singing about girls in general. Not every thing has to drop down to my 'virtual' sister, you see.Being a girl I found it offensive and I am entitled to my opinion. Isn't it?
And I am also entitled to expressing my opinion.. so that's what I did.
and like u rightly said I am not listening to that song at all coz it gets on my nerves the very second it plays. Why would I do that to myself? ;-)

You made me laugh, angry, grin, sly, all that :D
Honey Singh is plainly okay (I don't like his songs at all :D) He owns no right in the world to blabber uninvited lame rap offending for women beyond limits!
As simple as that.

I Bet your post only made this song famous enuff so that it can be part of a bollywood movie and that too mainstream .

Nothing personal... but your blog is more wannabe than the song itself... just because you have to blog... you are writing anything...anyways was just searching the exact literal meaning of the line "Shammi Mere Utte Kundi Ad Di Rehnde Eh" and came across your blog... cheers..!! :)
