Anyone know what 'buka' refers to in the Shukat Ali version - which by the way GM also uses on stage.
The smae word appears in 'tainu bhul ge ne yaar purane' - e..g 'buka rakh rakh royen ga sirahne'
And Banto is absolutely correct about Chulla - it refers to the ring or mundari. I know the word Chulla the way its incorporated in to the song doesnt always make sense and its not supposed to - its a bit like the tradional Boliyan - thre are words in there which are used purely to give the basis of a boli and to make it rhyme - e.g. 'mandhaniyan, madhaniyan, jinhan jamiyan unahn ne lai jaanieyan' The madhaniyan have nothing to do with the main message of the boli.
