I am sorry I did not hear this song before (this version aired back in July 2010). I am very glad that I finally got to do so after a friend forwarded it to me. Give it a listen. Give it a thought.
The singer is Adnan from the ‘underground’ band (I am not sure that is) Soch. The song certainly made me think. The show is Hasan Nisar’s Choraha, which is always good for an engaging (albeit opinionated) conversation and sometimes for uncovering musical gems.
P.S. This is an edited version of the song. In the show, after the song ends Hasan Nisar points out that dulhans in Pakistan are no longer happy with a 1 Lakh Ruppee lehnga. So, Adnan sings that stanza again, changing the price to Rs. 5 Lakhs!
