Nice article.

I think the original Mahabharatha shlokas (that appear in this part of the ithihasa - http://www.sacred-texts.com/hin/m01/m01187.htm) have been chosen for the song.

Also, I wonder if it is "chaapi" - I suppose it is "cha api" (meaning "and also") which sounds like "chaapi" when sung.
