Lyrics by Charul & Vinay (Ahmedabad). 

View in Hindi

mere sapnon ka janne ka huk re            My dreams have a right to know
kyun sadiyon se toot rahe hai                 why they have been shattering for years
inko sajne ka naam nahin                       like they do not want to get fulfilled  

mere haathon ko janne ka huk re         My hands have the right to know
kyun barson se khali pade re                why they have been empty for years
inhein aaj bhi kaam nahi hai                  they till today do not have a job

mere pairon ko yeh janne ka huk re      My legs have the right to know
kyon gaon gaon chalna pade re            why they walk from village to village
kyon bus ka nishan nahi                      why there is no trace of a bus

meri bhUkh ko yeh janne ka huk re      My hunger has the right to know
kyon godamon mein sadte hain daane   why are foodgrains rotting in the godowns
mujhe mutthi bhar dhan nahi (paddy)      I dont even have a handful of grain.

meri budhi maa ko janne ka huk re         My old mother has the right to know
kyon goli nahi sui davakhane                why are there no medicines in the clinics                

patti tanke ka saman nahi                     why there are no bandages or stiching aid.

mere kheton ko yeh janne ka huk re      my fields have the right to know
kyon bandh bane re bade bade               why are there big dams being built for water,
To bhi faslon mein jaan nahi                   and still there is no life in my crops.

mere jungalon ko yeh janne ka huk re      My woods have a right to know
kahan daliyan woh patte tane mitti            where are the branches, leaves and earth
kyon jharno ka nam nahi                        why there is no trace of springs.

meri nadiyon ko janne ka huk re               My rivers have the right to know
kyon zeher milaye karkhane                     why are the factories poisoning the rivers
jaise nadiyoon mein jaan nahi                  as though the rivers dont have life.

mere gaon ko jaan ne ka huk re               My villages have the right to know
kyon bijli na sadke na pani                       why there is no electricity, road or water supply
khuli ration ki dukan nahi                        Nor ration shopopen

mere voton ko ye jann ne ka huk re          My vote has the right to know
kyon ek din bade bade vaade                  Why one day we hear big promises
fir panch saal kam nahi                           And for five years, no work

mere raam ko janne ka huk re                My god has the right to know
rehman ko ye jannne ka huk re               why there is bloodshed on the streets
kyon khoon bahe re sadkon pe               as though we are not human beings.
kya sab insaan nahi

meri zindagi ko janne ka hak re            My life has a right to know
ab hak ke bina bhi kya jeena               if my life is worthy of living without promises
yeh jeene ke samaan nahin                  is it even equivalent to living.
