Why is Meena Kumari referring her brother as Moon?

In the song Mere bhaiyya mere chanda  from Kaajal, the yesteryear actor is praying for her brother and calling him the Moon

They say that no relationship is like that of a brother and sister. We all know that Bollywood has never left any relationship behind and the relationship between a brother and sister is certainly one of the favorite one! No Rakshabandhan whether reel or real is ever complete without the classic background music of Bhaiya mere rakhi ke.

We presume that all of you must be bored listening to the regular Bhaiya mere rakhi ke for years now. So we decided to add tadka to another evergreen number. We have translated the popular Mere Bhaiya Mere Chanda into English for a new festive experience!


Mere Bhaiya Mere Chanda

Mere Anmol Ratan


My Brother My Moon

My precious gem


Tere Badle Main Zamaane Ki

Koi Cheez Na Loon


Your exchange me world’s

Some things don’t take


Teri Saanson Ki Kasam Khaake, Hava Chalti Hai

Tere Chehre Ki jhalak Paake, Bahaar Aati Hai

Ek Pal Bhi Meri Nazaron Se Tu Jo Ojhal Ho

Har Taraf Meri Nazar Tujhko Pukaar Aati Hai


Your breath’s promise I take, air is blowing

Your face I see, Happiness comes

One second also my sight don’t disappear

Everywhere my sight is calling you
