SILSILA YE CHAAHAT KA

mausam ne lii a.ngaDaa'ii aa'ii aa'ii The weather stretches its limbs
laharaake barkha phir chaa'ii chaa'ii Rain ripples and spreads
jho.nka hawaa ka aa'ega aur yeh diya bujh jaa'ega A gust of wind will come and this light will be extinguished.
silsilaa yeh chaahat ka na mai.n ne bujhne diyaa... I haven't let (the lamp of) our love be extinguished.
o piya yeh diyaa na bujhaa hai na bujhegaa O beloved, this lamp hasn't been put out, nor will it be.
merii chaahat ka diyaa The lamp of my desire!
mere piyaa ab aa jaa re mere piyaa... My beloved, come to me now, my love...
is diye sa.ng jal rahaa mera rom rom rom aur jiyaa With this lamp, every inch of my body is burning
ab aa jaa re mere piyaa Come to me now, lover;
o mere piyaa ab aa jaa re mere piyaa O my love, come to me now, beloved!
faasala thaa duurii thii There was distance (between us), a remoteness...
faasala thaa duurii thii thaa judaa'ii ka aalam There was distance (between us), a remoteness, a world of separation;
i.ntazaar me.n nazare.n thii.n my eyes were fixed in wait for you.
aur tum vahaa.n the tum vahaa.n the tum vahaa.n the And you were there...
jhilmilaate jagmagaate khushiyo.n me.n jhuumkar shining, sparkling, swaying in happiness,
aur yahaa.n jal rahe the ham... and here I was, burning for you...
phir se baadal garjaa hai The clouds have thundered again;
garaj garajke barsaa hai with a great rumble the rains have fallen.
ghuumke tuufaan aaya hai A wandering storm has arrived,
par tujhko bujhaa nahii.n paaya hai but it hasn't managed to quench you,
o piya yeh diyaa chaahe jitna sataa'e tujhe O my love, this light [hasn't been quenched], however much they torment it —
yeh saawan yeh havaa aur ye bijliyaa.n the rain, the wind, the lightning!
mere piya ab aa jaa re mere piya My love, come to me now, my love
o mere piya ab aa jaa re mere piya O my love, come to me now, beloved
dekho yeh paglii diiwaanii Look at this crazy girl!
duniyaa se hai yeh anjaanii She knows nothing of the world.
jho.nka hawaa ka aa'ega A gust of wind will pass through,
aur iska piya sa.ng laa'ega

and bring with it her lover.

o piya ab aa jaa re mere piya My love, come to me now, my love
silsila yeh chaahat ka na dil se bujhne diyaa With all my heart, I didn't let this (lamp of) love be extinguished
o piya yeh diyaa O love, this light
silsila yeh chaahat ka na dil se bujhne diyaa With all my heart I didn't let this (lamp of) love be extinguished
o piya yeh diyaa O love, this light
ae piya piya piya O beloved, beloved, beloved

 

MAAR DAALA

yeh kiskii hai aahaT Whose footstep is this?
yeh kiska hai saaya Whose shadow is this?
hu'ii dil me.n dastak There was a knock at my heart;
yahaa.n kaun aaya who entered here?
ham par yeh kisne hara ra.ng Daala... Who spread this vibrant color over me?
khushii ne hamaarii hame.n maar Daala I died from happiness [lit.: my happiness killed me]
maar Daala... It killed me...
ham par yeh kisne hara ra.ng Daala Who spread this vibrant color over me?
khushii ne hamaarii hame.n maar Daala I died from happiness;
hame.n maar Daala... it killed me...
allah maar Daala... God, it killed me...
na chaa.nd hathelii par sajaaya The moon did not decorate my palm,
na taaro.n se ko'ii bhii rishta banaaya nor did I contract any relationship with the stars.
na rab se bhii ko'ii shikaayat kii... Nor did I make any complaint of God...
har gam ko ham ne chupaaya I hid every sorrow;
har sitam ko ha.nske uTHaaya with laughter I bore each injustice.
kaa.nTo.n ko bhii gale se lagaaya I even embraced thorns,
aur phuulo.n se zakhm khaaya and was wounded by flowers.
haa.n magar du'aa me.n jab yeh haath uTHaaya... Yes, but when I raised my hands in prayer,
khuda se du'aa me.n tumhe.n maa.ng Daala I begged God for you!
maa.ng Daala allah... God, I begged for you!
ham par yeh kisne hara ra.ng Daala Who spread this vibrant color over me?
khushii ne hamaarii hame.n maar Daala I died from happiness;
hame.n maar Daala... it killed me...
allah maar Daala... God, it killed me...
maar Daala... killed me...
yeh kiskii hai aahaT Whose footstep is this?
yeh kiska hai saaya Whose shadow is this?
hu'ii dil me.n dastak There was a knock at my heart;
yahaa.n kaun aaya who entered here?

HAMESHA TUMKO CHAAHA

ko'ii khushii hai yeh raat aa'ii sajdhaj ke baraat hai aa'ii Happiness comes this night; a resplendent wedding procession has arrived.
dhiire dhiire gam ka saagar tham gayaa aa.nkho.n me.n aakar
An ocean of sadness, having welled in the eyes, was slowly checked.
gu.nj uTHii hai jo shehnaa'ii to kholi'e baa.ndh ba.ndha'ii The hum of the shehnaii rises.
hamesha tumko chaaha aur chaaha aur chaaha...
I always loved you, loved you more and more...
hamesha tumko chaaha aur chaaha kuchh bhii nahii.n I always loved you, and loved nothing else
tumhe.n dil ne hai puuja puuja puuja aur puuja kuch bhii nahii.n
My heart has worshipped you... and worshipped nothing else.
na na nahii.n... No, nothing...
kuchh bhii nahii.n... nothing at all...
khushiyo.n me.n bhii chhaa'ii udaasii dard kii chhaaya me.n vo lipTii
Despair spread even in their happiness, wrapping her in the shadow of pain.
kahne piya se bas yeh aa'ii...
She came only to tell her beloved this:
jo daag tumne mujhko diya us daag se mera chehra khila The scar you gave me — my face bloomed from it.
rakhuu.ngii isko nishaanii banaakar maathe par isko hamesha sajaakar
I'll make of this a keepsake, and decorate my forehead with it forever.
o priitam o priitam bin tere mere is jiivan me.n kuchh bhii nahii.n
O darling, o darling, without you there is nothing at all in my life,
nahii.n... kuchh bhii nahii.n no... nothing at all
biite lamho.n kii yaade.n lekar bojhal qadmo.n se voh chalkar
Taking memories of past moments, going with heavy steps,
dil bhii royaa aur aa.nkhe.n bhar aa'ii man se aawaaz hai aa'ii the heart wept and the eyes welled up; the spirit cried out.
vo bachpan kii yaade.n vo rishte vo naate vo saawan ke jhule
Those childhood memories, those bonds and those affections, those promises of everlasting love [note: jhule, or swings, are often given as a present to a fiancee during the month of Saawan -- hence this translation of 'saawan ke jhule' as 'promises of everlasting love']
voh ha.nsna voh ha.nsaana voh ruuTHkar phir manaana Laughing, making him laugh, fighting and then making up;
voh har ek pal me.n dil me.n samaa'ii diye me.n jalaa'e each and every moment of love, burning like a lamp in my heart —
le jaa rahii huu.n mai.n le jaa rahii huu.n mai.n le jaa rahii huu.n
I am taking it with me, I am taking it with me, I am taking it with me!
o priitam o priitam bin tere mere is jiivan me.n kuchh bhii nahii.n
O darling, o darling, without you there is nothing at all in my life,
nahii.n... kuchh bhii nahii.n no... nothing at all
hamesha tumko chaaha aur chaaha aur chaaha...
I always loved you, loved you more and more
haa.n chaaha chaaha chaaha chaaha Yes, I loved
bas chaaha chaaha chaaha chaaha I just loved
haa.n chaaha chaaha chaaha chaaha Yes, I loved
aur chaaha chaaha chaaha chaaha... I loved more and more...

 

WOH CHAND JAISI LADKI

voh chaa.nd jaisii laDkii is dil pe chhaa rahii hai... That celestial [lit.: moon-like girl] girl is overshadowing my heart...
aa.nkho.n se raaste se is dil me.n aa rahii hai Through the lanes of my eyes she's slipping into my heart.
woh chaa.nd... That moon...
voh chaa.nd jaisii laDkii is dil pe chhaa rahii hai That celestial girl is overshadowing my heart
alhaD sii bholii-bhaalii maasuum yeh sharaarat
This mischief (of hers) is carefree, innocent, ingenuous.
badlii nahii.n hai ab tak bachpan kii uskii aadat She hasn't left behind the habits of childhood.
taDapa rahii hai yaade.n Memories are tormenting me;
o jaa'uu.n na na ho jaa'uu.n ho jaa'uu.n na mai.n paagal oh, may I not go insane!
aa jaa'e saamne voh yeh jaan ja rahii hai May she appear before me; this soul (of mine) is departing!
voh voh voh chaa.nd jaisii laDkii is dil pe chhaa rahii hai That, that, that celestial girl is overshadowing my heart
mera chaa.nd baadalo.n me.n kyo.n jaake kho gaya hai
Why has my moon gone and gotten lost in the clouds?
ab duur is qadar woh kyo.n mujhse ho gaya hai Why has she gone so far away from me?
kyo.n jii rahaa huu.n tanhaa yeh yaad bhii nahii.n hai
I don't even remember why I'm living so alone;
bas itna yaad hai ki voh yaad aa rahii hai I only remember that I'm remembering
voh chaa.nd... that moon...
voh chaa.nd jaisii laDkii is dil pe chhaa rahii hai... That celestial girl is overshadowing my heart...
aa.nkho.n se raaste se is dil me.n aa rahii hai Through the lanes of my eyes she's slipping into my heart
woh chaa.nd woh chaa.nd jaisii That moon, that moon-like...
