Dil hai hindustani















Hum logon ko samajh sako toh samjho dilbar jani
Jitna bhi tum samjhoge utni hogi hairaani
Phir bhi dil hai hindustani
Phir bhi dil hai hindustani

Hanskar apni wicket gawaa de
Dekho hum hain kitne daani
Phir bhi dil hai hindustani
Phir bhi dil hai hindustani

Crucial match mein battakh banaayein
Apni hai yehi nishani
Phir bhi dil hai hindustani
Phir bhi dil hai hindustani

Jaate hi hum waapas aayein
Ajab se hain hum praani
Phir bhi dil hai hindustani
Phir bhi dil hai hindustani

Catch pakadkar drop karein
Hum hain kitne balidaani
Phir bhi dil hai hindustani
Phir bhi dil hai hindustani

Coach bechara sar phodey
Hum field pe karein manmaani
Phir bhi dil hai hindustani
Phir bhi dil hai hindustani

Tondu buddhe khel rahe hain
Team mein nahin jawani
Phir bhi dil hai hindustani
Phir bhi dil hai hindustani

Naye naye products endorsein
Par performance wohi purani
Phir bhi dil hai hindustani
Phir bhi dil hai hindustani

Jaisa channel, waisa panel
Us par Mandira devi sarwa-gyani
Phir bhi dil hai hindustani
Phir bhi dil hai hindustani

Ooparwale, thodi baarish de do
Kyunki dushman hai toofani
Phir bhi dil hai hindustani
Phir bhi dil hai hindustani

Apni aisi waat lag gayi
Ki hum na maange pani
Phir bhi dil hai hindustani
Phir bhi dil hai hindustani

Toss jeet kar game haarein
Pitch ho jitni bhi suhani
Phir bhi dil hai hindustani
Phir bhi dil hai hindustani

World Cup se toh kat liye
Apni hai yehi kahani
Phir bhi dil hai hindustani
Phir bhi dil hai hindustani

Ab India jaakar jaise taise
Jaan hai apni bachani
Phir bhi dil hai hindustani
Phir bhi dil hai hindustani

Chaar saal baad phir aayenge
Lekar naya josh, nayi rawani
Kyunki dil hai hindustani
Kyunki dil hai hindustani

TV se hum phir chipkenge
Bhoolke khana pani
Kyunki dil hai hindustani
Kyunki dil haiiiii hindustaaaaaani...

too good :) …
Cricket is just one of the sports... but it’s given so much importance. Most sites have two pages: cricket and sports. But all the focus, limelight, money is not doing any good … to cricket or to the hero-seeking nation…

Vivek said...

Sahi likha bidu!

X: India is out of the world cup!
Y: What?!
X: Eggjactly! Wat lag gayi.

Thisisme said...

hmmm..sahi likha..!

its a game after all..n anyways...dil par mat le yaar :) this goes for all indians!

Nadim said...

surprisingly, i am not sad or disappointed! And the fact that im not, is making me sad! May be i realized its just a game after all!

Nadim said...

aur haan! 4 saal ki intezaari kyun?20-20 world cup haina jaldi mein! :-|

Neihal said...

hahahahahaha
bahut dimag lagaya :P
Itna Indian team lagaye to shayad kuch behtar ho

oh and loved this line
" Naye naye products endorsein"
separate 'hahahaha' for this one :P

Sakshi said...

Hahahah.
Now we can get back to normal life :P

Hope Viv is OK...

Vijay said...

Indians who say Cricket is just a game are just kidding themselves coz we all know how much cricket means to us and how important is winning any cricket match for an Indian. I have met a lot of people who have said its just a game we all move on, NO, its not just a game, if it were then why would anyone give it so much importance? I guess we are used to giving excuses for our shortcomings and consoling ourselves by saying its "just a game"!!! I love the aussies for that, they want to win so badly they can go to any extent and i truly endorse that point of view. They will sledge, they will bowl underarm balls, they use the media to undermine your strengths and criticize your strategies - just about ANYTHING, which would mean that they win their matches!!! I hope either Australia or South Africa take the cup - they deserve it and Bangladesh and Ireland - very well played - hope to see you better your performances in the next world cup!!!
Sorry, Sayesha for the long post!! :)
A hopeless passionate cricket fan!

Cheers! :)

Bivas said...

Absolutely angry at the moment...terrible performance and there is no excuse it. Agree with Vijay's thots though...'Winning isn't everything...it's the ONLY thing!'
All dat i would say is..."They didn't deserve to win the cup."

Smita said...

Arre yaar!! hum jaise logon ne hi inn cricketers ko itna oonchaa utha rakkha hai..sub cricket ko itna bada "money machine" na banne de...hamari to waat laga gaye..par apne to pockets garm kar gaye naa..koi hindustaani yeh nahi samajhta!! sab bevakoof hain

Smita said...

btw sayesha that was an excellent "satire" just loved it..as usual

shub said...

rotfl! :D
nicely done woman! :D

Tejal said...

hahahahh!! excellent work!
although was very sad bout it but now..hav bcom immuned to it! ye log hamesha aisa karte hain :(

koi baat nahi.. now i can support South Africa witout bein guilty! yay! lol..

Iday said...

If anyone SAW the match, they wudnt be sad :) Or perhaps they wud be - i dunno.

I saw the match and definitely dont feel sad. NOW all that i wish is that these ppl (the team, the administration, the hype-and-hoopla ppl) are put in their place.

If this is just a game, these are after all just the players. They dont deserve the demigod status they get - not on the basis of their profession, not on the basis of their performance :) I hope the nation wakes up to this reality ASAP...

*maxxx type ka hug for sheer creative brilliance*

amazing!!!

Rebellion said...

Poetry, good. Funny but me no smile!
Reason why it was written.. :(((
Sassshhhhhhhh :((((((((((((((
What was Viv doing? He's a cricketer na? Couldn't he give India some tips??? aarrrrggggghhhhh

Rebellion said...

On second thoughts, ek dum sayi likha. Thats what they deserve aur sayi mein jaan bachani padegi un logon ko! The Indians are furious. Airport par patthar baazi hogi, dekh lena aur Dhoni ki toh.. @#$@#^#$^&**

satish said...

abe, ab main kya likhun yaar. i feel a sudden urge to use those words. poora match dekha. presentation bhi. mandira bechari toh khub royee hai. i really think she is very hot. i was really hoping she wud strip to make us all feel little gud.

aah.. kill the bastards. kill em all.

Vijay said...

Dude Satish, are you sure you were watching the match in wee hours of the morning, coz Mandira Bedi is not that kinda "presenter" man!!!

Sayesha said...

#Priti,
Thanks :) and sigh :(

#Vivek,
Thanks yaar! Wat lag gayiiii! :'(

#Thisisme,
Yeah, aur kya kar sakte hain... :P

#Nadim,
Yeah, I'm over it too... I think blogging about it was a good release for my heartbreak.

//20-20 world cup haina jaldi mein! :-|

What? Aise low-fat world cup se hum logon ka kya hoga re? :P

#Neihal,
Thanks :P

#Sakshi,
Yeah, life can get back to (ab)normal. :)
ps: Viv's okay now, he's watching the match again and re-breaking my heart. :|

#Vijay,
I can totally identify with your sentiments. We can keep saying "Cricket is just a game" till the cows come home, but truth is - we all know it means a little more to us than just a game. Hopefully this was a wake-up call for our team about how hard everyone else is working.
ps: Feel free to post as long a comment as you want, the comment space is for you guys :)

#Bivas,
Yeah I have to agree, if they can't make it to the top eight, they're not good enough to be in the world cup, no matter how sentimental we get. :|

#Smita,
Thanks :) Well, their pockets may be warm, but their lives are in peril too... oh man, I hope nothing happens to any of them. :|

#Shub,
Thanks! :P

#Tejal,
Hehehe... I'm not gonna support any team. Just like the Indian team, I'm getting outta the world cup scene. :'(

#Iday,
I saw the whole match, and ended up with mixed feelings. :S But yes, this should serve as a wake-up call.

#Raam Pyari,
Thanks :)

#Rebellion,
Waaaaaaaaaaaaaa! :'(

//What was Viv doing? He's a cricketer na? Couldn't he give India some tips??? aarrrrggggghhhhh

Arre he toh gave up in the first ten overs itself and went to sleep. He knew where it was headed. I, the emotional fool, watched till the end. :(

//aur sayi mein jaan bachani padegi un logon ko! The Indians are furious. Airport par patthar baazi hogi, dekh lena aur Dhoni ki toh.. @#$@#^#$^&**

I hope they get home safe and sound, and nothing happens to any of them, especially Rahul (the only one who still retains my respect and adoration).

#Satish,
//mandira bechari toh khub royee hai. i really think she is very hot. i was really hoping she wud strip to make us all feel little gud.

ROFLLLLL! :D

#Vijay,
//Mandira Bedi is not that kinda "presenter" man!!!

Hahahahahaha! Well maybe she'd do a better job at this kinda presentation! :D

hey sayesha..i just get the feeling u were ready with this post even before the match started. Now to say u have broken my "already in tatters" heart wud be an understatement. Yup thr r numerous ppl panning the indian team in every way imaginable..but i never thought i wud get to read such sort in ur blog. I had always come to expect of cheerful/feel good post from you.Now to read this post first thing after somehow dragging myself to work to make up for yesterday's escapade from office has lowered my spirits even more!! Now I am off again to down some more drinks..i cant take this bashing of my beloved team anymore..i am going to stop reading all cricket related articles for sometime now...offcourse i am least bothered to know who wins the WC..i wont watch a single match of it..and thats a promise!!Gulp!Gulp!

cheers

"Naye naye products endorsein

This is egjacktly what has happened !!

We pamper them and send, see the result.

Hair gel to electric switches..
Cool drinks to biscuits..
and what not..
Where did all the Hero-giri go now ?!?!

Tired of them.

Btw, nice post Sayesha.
U r the Best !! :)

Sayesha said...

#Koi Pahailee,
Hehehe... yeah I've watched every KWK-related clip that Youtube has! :P

#Venki,
//i just get the feeling u were ready with this post even before the match started.

No darling, I wrote it after the match. I was too heart-broken to sleep and needed to write something out.

As far as the post is concerned, I dunno how you read it, but to me this post is not as shallow as it looks. The post helped me derive the courage to use humour to counter the heartbreak, and also brought me hope for the future. It's not just your beloved team, it's mine too :)

#Aysha,
Thanks! Hopefully the WC will help to wake 'em up from their slumber.

Bhai fundu post ...

Bivas said...

yeah...agree with Tejal though...would love South Africa to lift the cup...went to watch 300 last night and unfortunately they showed the nike n reebok ads with the Indian players endorsing those brands...Boy oh boy...the kind of hooting that followed was amazing!

Sanyukta said...

bilkull sahi bola di..lekin chaaaar saaaal...*sigh*

praablum yeh hai hamare cricketers ki, ki naav doobi bhi toh wahan jahan pani kam tha.
we beat bermuda. B'desh beat us, and now we are praying, hoping like crazy for bermuda to beat B'desh.

but then, things never turn out the way u think they will, sometimes.

I have been reading your blog for quite some time now. Really like it.

I work for a magazine www.jammag.com. No, I am not seeking a job with you. It is just that I saw this latest post and found it very funny and we would like to feature it in our next issue.

Please let me know if we can do that?
