What does Challa (Punjabi) mean?


Hey,
I'm listening to this song by Rabbi, Challa. Its amazingly beautiful, but I can't grasp the meaning of challa. I know challa means a ring, but is there any other meaning to it? I do remember there was another song challa, which became really famous, in what context was challa referred to?

Regards,
Kauffmann

PS: Enjoy the beautiful music and video by Rabbi

My country! In thy days of glory past
A beauteous halo circled round thy brow and worshipped as a deity thou wast—
Where is thy glory, where the reverence now? Thy eagle pinion is chained down at last,
And grovelling in the lowly dust art thou, Thy minstrel hath no wreath to weave for thee
Save the sad story of thy misery! Well—let me dive into the depths of time
And bring from out the ages, that have rolled, A few small fragments of these wrecks sublime
Which human eye may never more behold
And let the guerdon of my labour be,
My fallen country! One kind wish for thee!

Re: What does Challa (Punjabi) mean?

Well Challa, quite similar to Heer, is a punjabi folk. Many singers have sung various versions of it, each with a personal touch. You should listen to Challa by Gurdas Maan which was later remixed by Punjabi **

The literal meaning remains the same, the ring. But over the period of time, it has evolved into a different entity. Something that represents oneself.
Again, depending upon the compositions, there are different meanings.

Re: What does Challa (Punjabi) mean?

^^
Yeah, I've heard the Punjabi M C version, it was real good, but its too shazzam to stick around forever.

From what I found out, Challa means a mad person, which I think could be in context of a mad person in love, pretty much what Reeking said.

I'll surely ask my dad tomorrow morning about the exact meaning and I'll make him hear this song, I'm sure he's gonna love it, can't wait . Rabbi also sang Toteya Manmoteya, which is another folk song in punjabi!

I've heard alot about Heer and Ranjha, but never heard the song or the poem, I'll check it out.

Re: What does Challa (Punjabi) mean?

Totiya manmotia is another folk song, to which Rabbi added his own lyrics. Its not childrens song (Rabbi's version). Its got a very deep meaning. Lovely song.

Re: What does Challa (Punjabi) mean?

In Hinko (very similar to punjabi), Chhalla also means "nuts"

May not be relevant .. dunno as I didn't actually go through the video.

Re: What does Challa (Punjabi) mean?

the word for Mad or such kind of person is Jhalla and challa has evolved in its own to be used in multitude of forms and situations in songs.
