This Rendition Of “Pani Ka Bulbula” Will Leave You Pleasantly Surprised!

Even though it’s not fairly common, it is loved and adored by everyone who has heard it as one of the best pieces of art produced in the country. This Punjabi rap borders Nihilism to a certain extent and talks about how fragile this life, and consequentially, this world is!

Sa ni dha pa ma ga re sa

Paani da bula bula
