Pasbaan by Shafqat Amanat Ali


 By:   Date:


An amazing track encapsulating two of the greats; vocal brilliance of the Shafqat Amanat Ali and lyrical ingenuity of Amjad Islam Amjad come together to give you a nationalistic track dedicated to Pakistan Navy. Video of the track presents some brilliant patriotic aesthetics considering it was shot in mere three days but for me it’s the lyrics that makes this track extraordinary – the percussions in the chorus and bridge section really gets one going and one wishes to be among these brave soldiers to sacrifice his/her life.

Pakistan Navy: Reporting name: PN - is the naval warfare branch of Pakistan Armed Forces, responsible for Pakistan's 1,046 kilometres (650 mi) of coastline along the Arabian Sea, and the defence of important civilian harbours and military bases. The Pakistan Navy came into the existence after the independence of Pakistan in 1947, and is headed by Admiral Asif Sandila. Navy Day is celebrated on 8 September in commemoration of the Indo-Pakistani War of 1965.

Lyrics:

samandaron kay pasbaan
rawa dawan rawan dawan
jo mustaid hain raat din watan ki sar zameen kay gird panioon kay darmiyan

yeh deewar ban kay kharay panioon mein
aay koi bhi toofan
hai pasbaan

yeh waqt war yeh ba hunar yeh shair dil hein jin kay dum say mustakil
yeh sahilon ki roshni yeh manzilon ki aaghi
yeh zindagi kay nama bar yeh azmaton kay turjaman

yeh deewar ban kay kharay panioon mein
aay koi bhi toofan
hai pasbaan

yahi hai apna muda yahi hai apni mantaha
har aik imtehann mein wafa ho apni surkhroo
watan pay jaan day kay hum Shaheed hoon

yahi ragoon mein hai tarap yahi dilon mein arzoo
samay kay har chiragh mein lahoo ho apna zoofishan

yeh deewar ban kay kharay panioon mein
aay koi bhi toofan
hai pasbaan
