Story Behind the Song:

The song is about Sohni and Mahiwal (One of the Romantic Tragedy of Punjab)...!!!  Sohni was the daughter of a potter. And she fell in love with Mahiwal who left everything and become a worker for Sohni’s father. Sohni was forcefully married to another potter !! But every night Sohni would cross river Chinab and go to meet Mahiwal. But one day Sohni sister-in law come to know of this and she replaced the pot which Sohni used to cross river, with an unbaked pot !! Sohni took this pot and cross the river but the pot melt in water and she is drowned and Mahiwal who saw Sohni drowning jumped in the river which was on full current also drowned trying to save her...!!!!!

This song is a dialogue between the pot and Sohni. Mahiwal is waiting for Sohni in a dark, rainy night and Chinab is on it's full flow, but the yearn to meet her Love cannot stop from that and she is ready to sacrifice her life for it !!!!!
