Abstract

You sing about this pain in your heart [dil]. Then you get some solace in your heart, that there have been hard times like this for others in the past. It’s good to sing songs about pain. They make you remember … [a]ny matters of the past that you’ve heard and that are good, you should keep passing those along … . A lot of matters are forgotten along with people. But we singers don’t forget the matters of the past. We don’t forget the old songs.
