Vachan - Nitin Sawhney feat. Nicki Wells & Samidha Joglekar, Coke Studio @ MTV Season 2

This song is a poem written by Nitin's mother. The poem simply talks about how people make fake promises. Samidha Joglekar and Nicki Wells sing harmonies while Mahesh's unique aalaps add a surreal texture and color to the song. Nitin also uses the electric guitar for the first time in the set.

Song Synopsis: Log tootthe taron se Vachan lete hain Khud vachan karte hain Aur tod dete hain Bevafaon ki toh Aadat hi aisi hai Mohabbat karke bhi Muh mod lete hain. Log tootthe taron se Vachan lete hain Khud vachan karte hain Aur tod dete hain Bevafaon ki toh Aadat hi aisi hai Mohabbat karke bhi Muh mod lete hain. Yeh chulbuli baten Chanchal si najren Nakhrali adaayain Yeh manchali chalen Pyar Karne valo Samhalna seekho Bada dard hota hai Tootthe jee ko. Log tootthe taron se Vachan lete hain Khud vachan karte hain Aur tod dete hain Bevafaon ki toh Aadat hi aisi hai Mohabbat karke bhi Muh mod lete hain. Log tootthe taron se Vachan lete hain Khud vachan karte hain Aur tod dete hain Bevafaon ki toh Aadat hi aisi hai Mohabbat karke bhi Muh mod lete hain. Log tootthe taron se Vachan lete hain Khud vachan karte hain Aur tod dete hain. Meaning of the song: Promise once made is to be kept...only those who've suffered deceit in love know its value! Very few people make promises and keep them; as world is largely filled with those, who don't. Breaking someone's faith in love is the worst of all broken promises, as the heart that is beating in love, is living off this beautiful feeling and its various moments, while some hearts may move on smoothly after calling it quits...there are some hearts that continue to bleed in pain!
