Aamir Khan has come up with an excellent show to raise awareness about the issues happening in India, and the first one we had seen was about Female Foeticide. Along with every show, there is a beautiful song that matches the theme of the episode of the show and the first one was “O ri Chiraiya” sung by the great voice of Swanand Kirkire and the song by composed by Ram Sampath.
The song O Ri Chiraiya well explains the way the world is doing injustice towards the girl child and how they need to be respected. The low-tone and beautiful voice of Swanand would make you wonder what the world around us is changing to, because of the cruelty and selfishness filled in them. Female Foeticide is one of the intolerable acts done by many families, irrespective of their class, when they were expecting a male child and didn’t want to have a female child in the family, and the family decides to kill the baby even before she is born and entered the world.
Here goes the lyrics of the song:
O ri Chiraiya Nanhi si chidiya Angna mein phir aaja re
Andhiyara hai ghana aur lahoo se sana Kirno ke tinke ambar se chun ke Angna mein phir aaja re
Humne tujhpe hazaro sitam hain kiye Humne tujhpe jahan bhar ke zulm kiye Humne socha nahi Tu jo ud jayegi Ye zameen tere bin sooni reh jayegi Kiske dum pe sajega mera angna
O Ri Chiraiya, Meri Chiraiya Angna mein phir aaja re
Tere pankho mein saare sitare jadooN Teri chunar dhanak satrangi bunooN Tere kajal mein main kaali raina bharooN Teri mehandi mein main kachchi dhoop malooN Tere naino sajaa doon naya sapna
O ri Chiraiya, Meri Chiraiya Angna mein phir aaja re
