O Ri Chiraiya Lyrics, Video – Song by Swanand Kirkire against Female Foeticide: Satyameva Jayate

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.

Swanand Kirkire O Ri Chiraiya

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
