EK LADKI KO DEKHA

ek laDakii ko dekha to aisa laga... When I saw this girl, she seemed to me like... 
jaise khilata gulaab like a blooming rose;
jaise shaayar ka khvaab like a poet's dream;
jaise ujalii kiran like a glowing ray of light;
jaise ban me.n hiran like a deer in the forest;
jaise chaa.ndanii raat like a moonlit night;
jaise naramii baat like a soft word;
jaise mandir me.n ho ek jalta diya like a candle burning in the temple.
ek laDakii ko dekha to aisa lagaa... When I saw this girl, she seemed to me like...
jaise subah kaa ruup like the beauty of the morning;
jaise saradii kii dhuup like winter sunshine;
jaise viiNaa kii taan like a note from the lute; 
jaise ra.ngo.n kii jaan like the essence of all color;
jaise balakhaaye.n bel like a twisting vine;
jaise laharo.n ka khel like the play of waves;
jaise khushbuu liye aaye THa.nDii havaa like a cool scented wind.
ek laDakii ko dekha to aisa laga... When I saw this girl, she seemed to me like...
jaise naachataa mor like a dancing feather;
jaise resham kii Dor like a silken thread;
jaise pariyo.n ka raag like a fairy melody;
jaise sandal kii aag like the fire of sandalwood;
jaise solah si.ngaar like the sixteen (traditional) ornaments of beauty;
jaise ras kii phuhaar like a refreshing mist;
jaise aahistaa aahistaa baDHta nasha like a slowly growing feeling of intoxication.
ek laDakii ko dekha to aisa laga... When I saw this girl, she seemed to me like...

 

PYAR HUA CHUPKE SE

dil ne kaha chupke se yeh kya hua chupke se The heart said silently, what is this, that happened silently?
kyo.n naye lag rahe.n hai yeh dharatii gagan Why do the earth and sky suddenly seem fresh and new?
mai.n ne puuchha to bolii yeh pagalii pavan When I asked this, the mad wind said,
pyaar hua chupke se yeh kya hua chupke se  love happened silently; what is this, that happened silently?
kyo.n naye lag rahe.n hai yeh dharatii gagan Why do the earth and sky suddenly seem fresh and new?
mai.n ne puuchha to bolii yeh pagalii pavan I asked this, and the mad wind said,
pyaar hua chupke se yeh kya hua chupke se  Love happened silently; what is this, that happened silently?
titaliyo.n se suna titaliyo.n se suna I heard from the butterflies...
mai.n ne qissa baag ka baag me.n thii ek kalii the tale of a garden; in the garden was a flower bud.
sharmiilii anchhu'ii ek din man chala bha.nvaraa aa gaya One day the shy bud was visited by a flirtatious bee.
khil uTHii voh kalii paaya ruup naya The bud bloomed wide, it assumed a new form.
puuchhtii thii kalii ki mujhe kya hua The bud asked, what happened to me?
phuul ha.Nsa chupke se pyaar hua chupke se The flower laughed quietly; love happened quietly. 
mai.n ne baadal se kabhii o mai.n ne baadal se kabhii Sometimes, from the clouds, I
yeh kahaanii thii sunii parvato.n kii ek nadii  have heard this story: there was a mountain river, 
milne saagar se chalii it flowed to meet the sea.
jhuumatii ghuumatii ho naachatii Doltii It twisted and staggered, oh, it danced and swayed.
kho ga'ii apne saagar me.n jaake nadii Having gotten there, the river lost itself in the ocean 
dekhne pyaar kii aisii jaaduugarii in order to see what sort of magician love is.
chaa.nd khila chupke se pyaar hua chupke se The moon expanded quietly; love happened quietly.
kyo.n naye lag rahe.n hai yeh dhartii gagan Why do the earth and sky suddenly seem fresh and new?
mai.n ne puuchha to bolii yeh pagalii pavan When I asked this, the mad wind said,
pyaar hua chupke se yeh kya hua chupke se love happened silently; what is this, that happened silently?
kyo.n naye lag rahe.n hai yeh dhartii gagan Why do the earth and sky suddenly seem fresh and new?
mai.n ne puuchha to bolii yeh pagalii pavan When I asked this, the mad wind said...

KUCH NA KAHO (Kumar Sanu)

kuchh na kaho kuchh bhii na kaho... Don't say anything; don't say anything at all...
kya kahana hai kya sunna hai What is there to say, what is there to hear? 
mujhko pata hai, tumko pata hai I know, and you know.
samay ka ye pal tham sa gaya hai This moment in time has stood still,
aur is pal me.n koii nahii.n hai And in this moment, there's no one at all
bas ek mai.n huu.n bas ek tum ho save one: me, and save one: you.
kuchh na kaho kuchh bhii na kaho... Don't speak; don't say anything at all...
kitne gahare halke shaam ke ra.ng hai.n chhalke How deeply and softly the colors of evening have spread.
parvat se yuu.n utare baadal jaise aa.nchal Dhalake The lowering clouds have spread along the mountains like the hems of saris.

mahake mahake shaam ke saaye, pighale pighale tan man the sweetly scented shadows of evening; the yielding of body and soul!

buu.ndo.n kii yeh jhaDii laa'ii hai vo ghaDii The drops of this rainshower have brought that moment
jiske li'e ham tarase for which we have yearned.

do aatmaae.n kho'ii hai.n two souls are lost.

aa'o yahii.n rah jaae.n Come, we shall remain here.
