Just as this blog completes one year, the author of this blog interrupts the flow, and takes away some time to ponder upon the meaning of his existence on the face of the earth.. Here is one favourite and lovely song in Hindi, along with its translation..
Kyun Main Jaagoon
Mujhe yun hi karke khwabon se juda Parting me and my dreams like this,
Jane kahan chhupke baitha h khuda Don’t know where God has hidden,
Janu na mai kab hua khud se gumshuda I don’t know when I lost myself
Kaise jiyoon rooh v mujhse h juda How do I live, even my soul is away
Kyun meri raahein mujhse puchhein Why do my paths ask me
Ghar kahan hai where my home is..
Kyun mujhse aa ke Why does knock ask me
Dastak poochhe dar kahan hai where the door is
Rahein aisi jinki manzil hi nhi Paths with no destination,
Dhundho mujhe ab mai rehta hun wahin Find me, now I live there only..
Dil hai kahin aur dhadkan hai kahin My heart is somewhere, heartbeat elsewhere
Saansein hain magar kyu zinda mai nhi (My) breaths are there but why am I not alive..
Raet bani haathon se yoon beh gayi It became sand n flowed frm my hands,
Takdeer meri bikhri har jagah My luck is spilled everywhere..
Kaise likhun phir se nayi daastan How do I write a new tale again,
Gham ki siyahi dikhti hai kahan I can’t see the ink of grief (to write)
Rahein jo chuni h meri thi raza The paths I chose was my will
Rehta hun q phir khud se hi khafa Then why do I remain angry with me
Aisi bhi huyi thi mujhse kya khata What such mistake had I made
Tune jo mujhe di jeene ki saza that you punished me to live..
Bande tere maathe pe hain jo khinchi O man, the World is as big,
Bas chand lakeeron jitna hai jahaan as the lines on your forehead
Aansun mere mujhko mitate rahe My tears are erasing me,
Rab ka hukm na mit-ta hai yahan The order of the God isn’t erased.
Raahein aisi jinki manzil hi nahin
Dhoondho mujhe ab main rehta hoon wahin
Dil hai kahin aur dhadkan hai kahin
Saansein hain magar kyun zinda main nahin
Kyun main jaagoon Why do I wake up
Aur woh sapne bo raha hai and He is sowing dreams
Kyun mera rab yun Why is my God sleeping
Aankhien khole so raha hai with His eyes open
Kyun main jaagoon
