Just a Detour

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
