More Gurdas Mann

o paudi parakh laiye pair nu jis paudi te dhariye..
(test the step before you trust it with your foot)

Bekadraan di laggi nalon tutti changi hai..
( it is much better to let go of a relationship with someone who is not grateful to have you in his/her life)

These lines play in the head very often.. esp the first... look before you leap.. and test before you trust :-)

That is what i love about his songs.. one line that will make a LOT of sense...

More Gurdas Mann coming up, or River My Guru, whatever one can lay hands on!

Absolutely,I agree with the saying.

You reminded me of another song by Gurdaas Mann, "Laayee Be-kadraan Naal Yaari, ki Tutt Gayee Taddakk Kar Ke"
(the relationship with an ungrateful snapped with a breaking sound)

and yes i agree "Be-kadraan di laggi naalon tutti changi hai.."
