DEKHO DEKHO JAANAM

dekho dekho jaanam ham dil apna tere li'e laa'e Look, darling, look! I brought my heart for you.
socho socho duniyaa me.n kyo.n aa'e Think, darling, think! Why did I enter this world?
tere li'e aa'e I came for you.
dekho dekho jaanam ham dil apna tere li'e laa'e Look, darling, look! I brought my heart for you.
socho socho duniyaa me.n kyo.n aa'e Think, darling, think! Why did I enter this world?
tere li'e aa'e I came for you.
ab tuu hame.n chaahe ab tuu hame.n bhuule Whether you want me now or you forget me now
ham to bane rahe.nge tere saaye

I will forever remain your shadow [also, 'under your influence'].

dekho dekho jaanam ham dil apna tere li'e laa'ii Look, sweetheart, look. I brought my heart for you.
socho socho duniyaa me.n kyo.n aa'ii Think, darling, think! Why did I enter this world?
tere li'e aa'ii I came for you.
ab tuu hame.n chaahe ab tuu hame.n bhuule Whether you want me now or you forget me now
ham to bane rahe.nge tere saaye I will forever remain your shadow
dekho dekho jaanam ham dil apna tere li'e laa'e Look, darling, look. I brought my heart for you.
socho socho duniyaa me.n kyo.n aa'ii Think, darling, think! Why did I enter this world?
tere li'e aa'ii I came for you.
yeh kya hame.n hu'aa yeh kya tumhe.n hu'aa What is this that happened to me? What is it that happened to you?
saa.nso.n ke dariyaa me.n gulmul sii hone lagii The river of my breath became tumultuous.
na'ii hai yeh sazaa sazaa me.n hai mazaaa This is a novel punishment; there is pleasure in the punishment
chaahat ko chaahat kii shabnam bhigone lagii Our love is bedecked in love's dew. [lit. 'soaked,' but this has less pleasant connotations in English, yes?]
ab aur kya chaahe.n ab aur kya dekhe.n What else could I desire now; what else could I wish to see?
dekha tumhe.n to dil se nikalii When I saw you, something leapt from my heart.
dekho dekho jaanam ham dil apna tere li'e laa'ii Look, sweetheart, look! I brought my heart for you.
socho socho duniyaa me.n kyo.n aa'e Think, darling, think! Why did I enter this world?
tere li'e aa'e I came for you.
suno zara suna chuno hame.n chuno Just listen, listen, pick me, pick me!
aa.nkho.n ne aa.nkho.n se shamaake kuchh kah diya My eyes bashfully imparted something to yours.
suna mai.n ne suna chunaa tumhe.n chunaa I listened; I listened; I chose you.
shiishe ne shiishe se takaraa'e kah diya Glass, smashing into glass, spoke (for us). [reference to car accident in film; occasion of their first meeting.]
hai.n pal muraado.n ke ye pal hai.n yaado.n ke These are moments of precious desires, moments of memories.
ab merii jaan rahe yaa chalii jaa'e Now whether you stay my love or you go away,
dekho dekho jaanam ham dil apna tere li'e laa'e look, sweetheart, look! I brought my heart for you.
laa'ii I brought it.
socho socho duniyaa me.n kyo.n aa'ii Think, darling, think! Why did I enter this world?
tere li'e aa'ii I came for you.
aa'e I came;
ab tuu hame.n chaahe ab tuu hame.n bhuule whether you want me now or you forget me now
ham to bane rahe.nge tere saaye I will forever remain your shadow
ae dekho dekho jaanam ham dil apna tere li'e laa'e Hey, look, darling, look! I brought my heart for you.
laa'ii I brought it.
socho socho duniyaa me.n kyo.n aa'ii Think, darling, think! Why did I enter this world?
tere li'e aa'ii I came for you.
aa'ii I came.

 

ISHQ HUA KAISE HUA

ishq hu'aa kaise hu'aa We fell in love! [lit.: love happened] How did it happen?

jhukii jhukii nazare.n hai.n We look at each other on the sly; (lit.: the gazes are lowered)
rukii rukii saa.nse.n hai.n our breaths catch (lit.: the breaths are halting)
dhak dhak karta hai dil my heart skips a beat! [lit.: the heart thuds. Again, this is a Hindi turn of phrase that doesn't go over too well in English.]
jaage jaage armaan hai My desire is eternally awake;
so'aa so'aa yeh jahaan hai this world is asleep;
chorii chorii aake mujhe mil Come to meet me in secret.
sun...zara Just listen.
gun...gaatii hai havaa The wind is singing.
phailii havaa'o.n par apnii khabar The news is on the spreading winds
pyaar kiya hai to phir kya hai Dar Once you've loved, what's (the use of) fear?

haule haule dhiire dhiire subtly and slowly,
dil ko milii hai ma.nzil (my) heart has found its destination.
bhiigii bhiigii raato.n me.n In the wet, wet nights
pyaarii pyaarii baato.n me.n and in loving, loving talk
kho'aa kho'aa rahata hai dil (my) heart remains lost.
ruk...hamsafar Hold up, (my) life's companion.
jhuk... jhuktii hai nazar (My) gaze is lowered [from shyness or coyness].
ek pal hame.n tum bin chain kahaa.n One moment without you, and where is my peace?
dono.n dilo.n kii hai ek dastaa Both our hearts leap as one.
phir bhii hai.n kyo.n ye duuriyaa.n Then why do these distances yet remain (between us)?
dekh mujhe yuu.n naa sataa Look at me; don't tease like this
hona hai kya kisko pataa Who knows what must be (or 'become of this').
naa mai.n januu.n naa tuu jaane Neither I or you might know
kyo.n ho ga'e ham diiwaane why we became crazy (for each other).
ishq hu'aa kaise hu'aa We fell in love! How did it happen?
