7 Basic Things almost all Pakistanis hear

So a few days back me and my friend Anas Alee started a twitter discussion on what we usually hear but don’t really give a damn to. But those statements have been a part of our lives since long. We have all been hearing them since we were kids and will probably hear them till we die (if we stayed in Pakistan).

So here’s the list

1 – Gol Gappay Wala (version 1)

Coming toward the first one it is Gol Gappay wala who comes in our gali mohalla every now and then with the song of Ahmed Rushdi which is as follows

Gol Gappay wala aya Gol Gappay Laya

Gali gali gaata phiray hansta hansata

Aray aya re aya re aya re

Bara mazedar mera gora gora maal re

Jaise Goray gaal re

Gol Gappay wala aya Gol Gappay Laya

 

2 – Gol Gappay Wala (version 2)

With the passage of time the old song became obsolete and a modernized version replaced it. The new version was not a song but sort of commercial statement

Gol Gappay

Kararay Gol Gappay

Baara Masalay walay Gol Gappay

Zaiqay Daar Gol Gappay

Dil Bahaar Gol Gappay

Aap ke shehar mein pehli martaba

Aagaya Gol Gappay Wala Aagaya

Aao Bhaijaan Gol Gappay Kha lain

3 – Chakku Kenchi

We all must have seen a hardworker roaming on a cycle chanting 

“CHAKKU KENCHI TEZ KARNE WALA”

This is pretty much it. His statement is to the point and serves the purpose.

4 – Paapar Wala

A poor vendor carrying a giant plastic bag full of paapars can be easily seen at sea view or places like that saying

Paapar Aalayyyy

Kararay Paaparayyy

 

5 – Faalsay

I had to google what Faalsa is called in English but can’t find a perfect answer but it is called “PHALSA” at some of the points. Anyway we all must have seen a vendor carrying two wooden trays full of Phalsa hanging on his shoulder chanting

Kaalay Kaalay Faalsay

Khattay Meethay Faalsay

 

Even the memory is enough to remind of how it tastes with Kaala Namak.

 

6 – Pressure cooker / Oven

Sui Gas ke cholhay bananay wala

Cholhay ke button laganay wala

Water Cooler ki toonti laganay wala

Pressure cooker ka handle laganay wala

Pressure cooker ki seeti laganay wala

 

7 – Teen Dabbay Wala

Finally this is the most common one

Teen Dabbay Alaya

Bhoosi Tukray Alaya

 

Thanks to Anas Alee for his contribution
