Hori Khelungi Baba Bullehshah Sufi Song by Daler Mehndi

Daler Mehndi, harkens his spiritual seeking inner self by composing befitting music and performing with similar gusto the words penned by one of the undivided India’s most revered philosopher, humanist, sufi poet – Baba Bulleh Shah of the late 16th century, also titled as “The man of God” , “The Knower of Spiritual Grace”, as though a seeker finds wings to his search when in communion with another on a similar path. Transcending cultures, faiths the author uses ‘Hori’ – a spring festival of colors (prominently a Hindu festival) as a metaphor. The onset of spring, hori, reference of boond (drop of water) are all metaphors for the ineffable joy being experienced by the Author as though he had caught a glimpse of the Supreme, tasted revelation which has caused more joy, more yearning, more surrender and more love.
The song/kafi is euphoric in its expression. The author pleads with joy, affirms his supplication by advocating, like a command ‘Keh Bismillah’ to himself – thereafter setting an exemplary example for another seeker.
The song was performed live first in 2006 at the Humayun’s Tomb, Jahan – e – Khusrau an event organized by the ace film maker Muzaffar Ali of the ‘Umrao Jaan’ fame. The song is in a Qawwali style compete with the signature Daler Mehndi energy, a panache strong enough to engulf any seeker and make a non-believer dance in celebration.
