Teri Deewani: a heart touching sufiana by Kailash Kher

A beautiful sufiana – prayer of love – from the Album "Kailasa" by Kailah Kher and his band Kailasa.

The well-directed video has beautiful, strong images. The lyrics, inspired by the works of medieval Rajasthani poet Meerabai, are reminiscent of the timeless Persian love story 'Layla and Majnoun'.

Watch the video – English translation of Hindi lyrics below.

Kailasa is an Indian fusion band, founded by Kailash Kher. The name of the band is taken from an accented pronunciation of Kailash's own name as well as Mount Kailash, the abode of Hindu God Shiva. Along with guitars, drums and keyboards; the band incorporates classical Indian instruments and sometimes traditional lyrics to infuse folk and Sufi hue to their songs.

Kailasa's music is a blend of medieval Indian music, Sufi and Western music. Lyrical themes though vary but the most distinct style of Kailash Kher is where he sings as through a female devotee/lover trying to persuade her deity/loved one. Fusion of love, worship and persuasion is inspired by the works of medieval Rajasthani poet Meerabai. Such an influence can be observed in songs 'Teri Deewani' and 'Albela Saajan' from their eponymous debut album.

I have become crazy
I keep loving my beloved
I can sacrifice myself for my beloved
I don't care about myself anymore
This is known by the whole world
I wander without reason
I'm lost in love
I'm lost in love

I will live by your name
I wll die by your name
In your life's promise,
I'll do such a thing
What have you done to me?
I am finished
I am erased
I have become
Your crazy crazy lover
Your crazy crazy lover

I am finished I am erased

When passion of love crosses a limit
When passion of love crosses a limit
Lovers embrace death willingly
The magic of love takes me and says
The magic of love takes me and says

You can put restraints but God will find a way…
Some decisions are made by love; some are made by God…

Some decisions are made by love; some are made by God…
What is life without you? I am not so selfish
What have you done?
What have you done to me?
I am finished
I am erased
I have become
Your crazy crazy lover
Your crazy crazy lover
IU am a colorful crazy lover
I am strange, I am in your bliss
I sing, I play, I please everyone
Yet I am so distant from everyone
I am a crazy, crazy lover

I will live by your name
I wll die by your name
In your life's promise,
I'll do such a thing

Preet ki lath mohe aaisi laagi
Ho gayi main matwaali
Bal bal jaaun apane piya ko
He main jaaun vaari vaari
Mohe sudh budh naa rahi tan mann ki
Yeh toh jaane duniya saari
Bebas aur laachar phiru main
Haari main dil haari – 2

Tere naam se jee loon – 2
Tere naam se marr jaaun – 2
Teri jaan ke sadke mein kuchh aaisa kar jaaun
Tune kya kar dala marr gayi main mitt gayi main
Ho ri ha ri ho gayi main
Teri deewani deewani- 2
Tune kya kar dala marr gayi main mitt gayi main
Ho ri ha ri ho gayi main
Teri deewani deewani – 2
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/k/kailash_kher/teri_deewani.html ]
Ishq junoon jab hadh se badh jaaye – 2
Haste haste aashiq suli chadh jaaye
Ishq ka jaadu sara chadha kara bole – 2
Khoob laga lo pehre raste rab khole
Yahi ishq di marzi hain
Yahi rab di marzi hain
Yahi ishq di marzi hain
Yahi rab di marzi hain
Tere bin jeena kaisa
Haan Khudgarzi hi
Tune kya kar dala marr gayi main mitt gayi main
Ho ri ha ri ho gayi main
Teri deewani deewani – 4

Oh ho oh hoohhhh…

He main rang rangeeli deewani – 2
Ke main albeli main mastani
Gaaun bajaaun sabko rijhaaun
He main dila zaram se begaani
Ke main deewani main deewani
Tere naam se jee loon tere naam se marr jaaun
Tere jaan ke sadle mein kuchh aaisa kar jaaun
Tune kya kar dala marr gayi main mitt gayi main
Ho ri ha ri ho gayi main
Teri deewani deewani
Teri deewani deewani
Teri deewani deewani
Teri deewani deewani…
