Pakistan Noorjahan Song – “American Love”
Pakistan Noorjahan Song
This song is by legendary singer NOORJAHAN (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noor_Jehan), who began her career in undivided pre-1947 India and moved to Pakistan when freedom came.
The song is one of her most loved songs. It is an anti-romance song as it concludes:
Aur bhi dukh hai zamane me mohabbat ke siwa
Rahaten aur bhi hain, vasl ke rahat ke siwa
There are countless sorrows in this world, Love is just one
A very talented Pakistani has compiled this video, which accurately portrays Pakistan and America as lovers.
“Time was when America’s sorrows were also mine – now you are still ravishing, but life has other traumas I must see to”.
For those interested, America has been Pakistan’s main backer all these years. Even after the Osama Bin Laden discovery “hiding in plain sight”, Americans consider Pakistan their best bet in the Region.
The cosy relationship was exemplified by Hollywood in “Charlie Wilson’s War” – Tom Hanks/Julia Roberts. Indian actor Om Puri plays Pak president Zia-Ul-Haq.
