Jasmine Sandlas’ song 36 Mere Vargiya is more like a tribute to every girl who has healed from cheating and heartbreak in a relationship that she gave her soul.
Indian-American songwriter and singer Jasmine Sandlas made a comeback with yet another ‘Add To Playlist’ Song in 2021. The song is titled ’36 Mere Vargiya’ which in local dialect is used to take away the identity of a girl by comparing her to 36 other girls similar to her.
The lyrics shout ‘Terrific songwriting’ with each new beat in the song. 36 Mere Vargiya has nostalgia attached to it. With stirring storytelling and compelling narration, Jasmine Sandlas dedicates the song to everyone. Jasmine took to Instagram to say that she started writing the song in 2019 and finished it around the onset of 2021. She says the song would have been taken as only her story, had she released it 2 years ago.
Well, of course, the audience would have related it to anger, aggression, seeking validation back then. Jasmine Sandlas emphasises that she didn’t want to seek sympathy for herself. She reiterates that she didn’t want ’36 Mere Vargiya’ to be only about her.
Jasmine Sandlas said,” I didn’t want to be only about her. I didn’t go that route. And here we are, it’s the middle of 2021. Zaroori aa(It’s important) because it’s not just my story.”
A tribute to everyone who has healed from heartbreak
36 Mere Vargiya is more like a tribute to every girl who has healed from cheating and heartbreak in a relationship that she gave her soul. Jasmine Sandlas says ‘Horan Naa Edaan Na Hove Dardeyaan, Nai Te Apan Kendey Na’ which translates to ‘I tell my story because I fear it could become the story of someone else too’.
Jasmine Sandlas also wrote a heartfelt note on Instagram about 36 Mere Vargiya.
It reads, “36 tere vargiya is a phrase used to belittle and degrade women in Punjab. Most women don’t come forward to share their narratives because they feel shame and guilt. This song is about the woman sharing her side of the story about having stayed in a toxic relationship for as long as she did while ignoring the red flags. 36 mere vargiya is a song about good riddance and it comes with a warning that “if they ever ask you what happened, tell them the truth or say nothing at all”.
I hope this song helps alleviate your suffering. That is all I hope. I hope this song allows you to see what you don’t deserve. This is all I hope. I hope this song gives you the courage to leave a toxic relationship that will eventually be the end of you. Just know that sometimes you have to go through an experience to become a new version of yourself. Every angel must keep meeting demons until she sees her own reflection in her tears.
This song is about liberation. This song is about self-love and self-respect. Don’t make it small by tagging a name below. We out here at #teamsandlas don’t belittle and degrade anyone. We uplift and empower. Above all, we continue to love. And just like that, I am off the internet. Until next time 🕊 Send me your most potent love through your videos. Every time I release a heavy emotion through a song, I feel empty. I could use your love to fill myself up again. Whatsapp your videos and audios +91 99157 30156.“
