Do Dilon Ke describes the passion and barriers that exist between two lovers, as the people around them come to grips with the geographical change that transpires during the Indian independence movement.

Dohaz lyrics meaning

You can try and harvest crops during the salty monsoons. Create two countries from the existence of one.

Divide these birds and divide the winds that they fly across in as well. Take 1/3 of these sunrays and let’s equally distribute the stars among ourselves.
