CHAI PAR CHARCHA: “Sur Suri si chai hai Surup Surup key pee” – We sipped tea while they took the lights away from our homes!

Sur suri ye chai hai…sudap sudap ke pee
Le gaye kharid ke wo ghar se roshni
Humne na baval kiya, na koi sawal kiya
Biath ke lihaf mein re thodi…thodi thohdi chai pee
Sur suri …sur suri….
Desh inke baap ka hai…chahe jo karein
Chahe jisko thok dalein…jail bhej dein
Raja jee ke logon ne to rotiyon ko noch daala
Junglon ko bech ke zameen ko kharonch daala
Kya karogejungolon ka khaoge kya ghaans?
Sur suri….sur suri…
Desh booda ho chukka hai..saath saal ka
Phir bhi roop…hai iska hai kamaal ka
Ek gaal gol gol laal laal hai
Doosra gutter pe jaise koi chaal hai
Sad raha hai doosra…phenk do bahir…
Sur suri…sur suri…
Raat badi kali thee…kash pe
Sur suri…suri suri…

We sipped tea and we sat in our warm quilts

They took away the lights from our homes

We didn’t protest, we didn’t raise our voice

We just sat there and relished our high tea!
