“Shabaashiyan” : A Song From Mission Mangal That Touched My Heart

Posted: August 19, 2019

While juggling multiple roles, don’t forget you are important too.  Make yourself a priority because no one else will with #KhayaalRakhna

The song “Shabaashiyan” has been running on a loop since morning, after I watched the movie ‘Mission Mangal’ yesterday night. It was a fantastic movie with top performances by all of the cast.

The lyrics of the song, that go as –

“kehte the log jo,

Kaabil nahin hain tu,

Denge wahi salamiaan!

(roughly translated as ‘let those people who say that you are not capable, applaud/ praise you’ and )

Dil thaam ke Jahaan

Dekhega ek din,

Teri bhi kaamyaabiyaan”

(roughly translated as ‘Let the world watch your success while ‘holding it’s breath(for lack of a better expression in my english vocabulary’)

– are so heartfelt and the song is such a beautiful positive affirmation that  I am a happy mom when my son is hooked to it. Take a bow Mr. Amitabh Bhattacharya for the wonderful lyrics which have bundled into the song myriad emotions and situations. It is the most wonderful way to down the curtains on such a powerful movie which portrays one of the outstanding achievements in the history of India.  Kudos to the music director, singers and to the entire team of ‘Mission Mangal”.

Apply this to real life and all of us can relate to it. Every person’s life is different and so are the challenges we face. Especially, as women, we are what we are today, after overcoming so many opinions of our ‘worthiness and capability’ (kaabiliath). Just as the team rejoices when the rocket is in the orbit, we have our team of friends, family and soul sisters who have cheered us when when we are down and encouraged us to push our boundaries. The task may be big or small, but every time you overcome a challenge or you are facing the hurdles that life sets up for you, listen to this song and give yourself some well deserved appluase for all your achievements till date and for the may more to come in future.

So play the song (attached is the link below), close your eyes and simply enjoy being all charged up!
