WELL WELL! LET US NOT LOOK SURPRISED ; IT WAS ALWAYS THE SAME.
" Geet Hamare Pyaar Ke
Doharain Gi Jawaaniyan
Hum Na Rahengey, Tum Na Rahogi
Raheien Gi Phir Bhi Nishanian
( from film Shree 420)
HERE IS JALANDHAR's VERY OWN ( BUT TRUE ) VERSION OF " SOHNI MAHIWAAL" & " HEER RANJHA"
In the years after the Second World War and Independence ( i.e. late 1940s ) the beloved of an aeroplane pilot lived in the area around Basti Sheikh Darwesh.Hers was a multi storeyed house.
One fateful day, the lover pilot took off ( probably from a flying club ) and very cheekily navigated his plane to the skies above the house of his beloved.
The beloved immediately, ran up the stairs to the roof of her house. From there she kept on waving her Dupatta to her man high above.
To get a clearer view and / or to impress her, the pilot kept on diving his plane lower and lower till the tragic happened. The plane crashed( in the agricultural fields between Basti Sheikh and Basti Gujan/ Basti Danishmandan ), the pilot passing away.
