The Chandigarh traffic police gave a hilarious twist to a Punjabi pop song called "Bolo Tararara" by singer Daler Mehndi. It was sung by a cop with different lyrics on no parking, which gives the message about the repercussions of incorrectly parking one's car.
The cop can be heard singing: “No parking, sadkan tae hai no parking… Traffic police teri car chuk ke lae gayi, chori hogayi, chori hogayi sochdi reh gayi..Bolo tarara… Tarara gaddi nu crane lae gayi.. bolo tararara…No Parking".
Which can be translated as: “No parking on roads. No parking on roads. Traffic police took your car. It has been stolen, you keep thinking… But the car has been taken away by a traffic police crane…Bolo tararara”.
Chandigarh Police's innovative 'No Parking' song inspired by Daler Mehndi is a hit👇🎤🎶👇https://t.co/yF2CEVHCZL#mumbaitraffic #Mumbai @mumbaitraffic @MaladBuzz @RoadsOfMumbai #thane @smart_mumbaikar #pune@Lokhandwala_Bom @We_Are_Pune #navimumbaihttps://t.co/94bt2wtlyt— BlueTreeLakes (@bluetreelakes) 20 октября 2019 г.
