We fixed some seriously questionable colourist songs that you all love

Goray rang ka zamana ... ab hogaya purana

KARACHI: As if our society’s obsession with fair skin wasn’t enough, it’s sad that we’re also consuming content that subconsciously promotes fair skin. Which is why we’ve decided to rewrite some of these song lyrics, taking inspiration from BuzzFeed’s Srishti Dixit, who took on sexism in one simple but very viral video.

1. ‘Chittiyaan Kalaiyaan

Original lyric: Chittiyaan kalaiyaan ve, oh baby meri chittiyan kalaiyan ve

Our version: Jaisi bhi kalaiyaan re, oh baby meri best hain kalaiyaan re

2. ‘Meri Kaali Kaloti Ke Nakhrey Baray

Original lyric: Meri kaali kaluti ke nakhre bare

Our version: We don’t have a version. This song should be banned.

3. ‘Goray rang ka zamana

Original lyric: Goray rang ka zamana, kabhi hoga na purana

Our version: Goray rang ka zamana ab hogaya purana

4. ‘Kala Chashma

Original lyric: Tenu kala chashma jajda hai jajda hai goray mukhrey pe

Our version: Tenu kala chashma jajda hai jajda hai PYAARE mukhrey pe


5. ‘Goray rang wali yaar

Original lyric: Goray rang wali yaar thora charh gayi, assi shaddita nasha goray rang da

Our version: Goray rang wali yaar thora charh gayi, jab joota maregi toh forun uttar jayegi

6. ‘Yeh Kaali Kaali Aankhein

Original lyric: Yeh kaali kaali aankhein, yeh goray goray gaal

Our version: Yeh kaali kaali aankhein, jaisay bhi hon mere gaal, baaz ajao

7. ‘Dil Dance Maare

Original lyric: White white face dekhey, dil woh beating fast sasura, jaan se maare re

Our version: White white face dekhey, dil woh beating fast sasura, dil kerta hai tujhe chamaat marey re

8. ‘Gora Gora Rang

Original lyric: Gora gora rang ni, halak tera patla patang ni

Our version: Gora gora rang ni, tera halak nahi daba doon main? Gora rang karta phirtha hai
