Meaning behind Gallan Sachiyan by Garry Sandhu

A few weeks ago when doing my weekly round on YouTube looking for new music to post about I came across a song called Gallan Sachiyan by Garry Sandhu. I liked the vibe of the song and liked the video so I thought why not download the song?

After downloading the song I found myself listening to it repeatedly but the reason for this was that I was itching to get to the bottom of the true meaning behind the song. I had an understanding of the song already but I wanted to get down the core and understand every word so I went on my quest to find the true meaning. This involved me using Google (a lot), YouTube and family to gain the true meaning of the song. Check out a word for word translation of Garry Sanhu’s Gallan Sachiyan below… This song truly does contain some real talk!

Hun aun de vaisakhi jatt maare na damame,
Gallan sachiya sunau jehre bande ne maame,
Hun aun de vaisakhi jatt maare na damame,
Galan sachiyan sunau jehre bande ne mamme,
Hoke aukha saukha khetan vichon kadd da,
Ladd ganeya di sira tak chadi vike na,
Ramdev diyan biki jaan daatna,
Ho jatta teri sohni kade haadi vike na, (x3)

Now Jatt’s don’t sing happy songs around Vaisakhi
I will be telling the truth to the fake lords
Now Jatt’s don’t sing happy songs around Vaisakhi
I will be telling the truth to the fake lords
He works very hard in the fields
for the pile of sugarcane reaching over his head, which doesn’t sell
Ramdev is able to sell twigs
but Hey Jatt, sometimes your summer and other times your winter crop doesn’t sell

Oh vi Delhi sarkaar jehi hogayi,
Saade palle gitte sambhi fire taj nu,
Injh nakshe chon kadne nu firdi,
Jiven aap kaddi fire Jasraj nu,
Oh jiven aap kaddi fire Jasraj nu,
Kitte kiloan de saabh naal raddi bikdi,
Saadi aalooan di bori vi khilari bike na,
Ramdev diyan biki jaan dattna,
Ho jatta teri soni kade haadi vike na, (x3)

It has also become like the Delhi Government,
It gave us pieces of bricks but kept the Taj for herself
It wants to remove Punjab from the map
like Aam Aadmi Party removed Jassi Jasraj from its ranks
like Aam Aadmi Party removed Jassi Jasraj from its ranks
There are places where even Junk is sold per Kilogram
But a large bag of potatoes grown by farmers can’t get a good rate

Ramdev is able to sell twigs
but Hey Jatt, sometimes your summer and other times your winter crop doesn’t sell

Saanu likhti davaiyan waang bijli,
Aakhe do ghante subah baaki raat nu,
Gal suni na gareeb wali kise ne,
Par Modi ji sunage mann wali baat nu,
Par Modi ji sunage mann wali baat nu,
Kehnde digital kar daange pinda nu,
Bhaven thode hathan vich roti tike na,
Ramdev diyan biki jaan dattna,
Oh jatta teri soni kade haadi bike na, (x3)

They have given us electricity similar to how a physician writes down medicine (example: two pills in the morning and the rest later on during the day)
Two hours of electricity in the morning and the rest during the night (Electricity is still very scarce that is given to the farmers to water their fields)
Nobody listened to the poor man’s voice
but Modi managed to say his “Mann ki Baat” (Thoughts of his mind)
but Modi managed to say thoughts of his mind
He said that we will make the villages digital
It doesn’t matter if you are able to manage “roti” in your hands
Ramdev is able to sell twigs
but Hey Jatt, sometimes your summer and other times your winter crop doesn’t sell

Kahnu ralliyan ch ja ja naare maarda ein,
Kinne member te kinne bane panch ne,
Iko pind teen thadeyan ch wand ta,
Oh taan kathe baithe kari jaande lunch ne,
Oh taan kathe baithe kari jaande lunch ne,
Gal sachi sada Lovely ne likhni,
Bhaven CD geetan wali saari bike na,
Ramdev diyan biki jaan dattna,
Oh jatta teri soni kade haadi vike na, (x3)

Why do you go to Rally’s and shout out your support/anger
How many have become Members and How many became Member of Panchayat (political system)
They have divided one village in three groups
but they are all sitting down together and eating lunch
but they are all sitting down together and eating lunch
Our own Lovely has penned down the truth in this song
It doesn’t matter if the CD full of these kind of songs doesn’t sell
Ramdev is able to sell twigs
but Hey Jatt, sometimes your summer and other times your winter crop doesn’t sell
