MUJHE SAAJAN KE GHAR
 

meh.ndii lagaake aa'ii I came wearing henna;
bi.ndiya sajaake aa'ii   I came adorned with a bindi.
meh.ndii lagaake aa'ii bi.ndiya sajaake aa'ii   Henna on my hands, adorned with a bindi, I came.
chuuRii khankaake aa'ii paayal chhankaake aa'ii Bangles clashing, anklets jingling, I came.
ab giit milan ke gaana hai gaana hai gaana hai Now I must sing songs of our union;
mujhe saajan ke ghar jaana hai... I must go to my husband's home...
guRiyaa.n paTole the mahariya nishaaniya My dolls, my friends, all the traces of my childhood,
yaad o rahe joRiya oh, my love, their memory will remain.
bachpan biita jawaanii aa'ii... But m y childhood has passed, womanhood is upon me...
saajan ka sa.ndesa laa'ii and it has brought a message from my beloved.
saiyyaa.njii ke sej ko jaake Going to my husband's bed,
phuulo.n se mahakaana hai I must scent it with flowers.
mujhe saajan ke ghar jaana hai... I must go to the home of my husband...
janm diya moh o piya to paraa'iyaa.n ho jaandiyan My love, those who gave birth to me have become strangers;
pal me.n naata toR chalii mai.n in one moment I broke our connection.
baabul ka ghar chhoR chalii mai.n I forsook my father's home;
ab to piya ke desh me.n saara jiivan mujhe bitaana hai now I must spend my whole life in my husband's land.
mujhe saajan ke ghar jaana hai... I must go to the home of my husband.
beTii kii taqdiir ka likha... A daughter's fate was written...
paRHke mamta ro'ii reading it, those who loved her wept...
kisii ne isko janam diya  Someone gave birth to this girl,
aur le jaa'e ise koii and someone will take her away.
saj-dhaj ke aaye baaraatii laa'e ghoRe haathii A resplendent wedding procession will come; elephants and horses will lead it.
terii shaadii ke mauqe pe On the occasion of your wedding,
milke sehara gaa'e.nge as they garland the groom, the crowd will sing,
sadaa suhaagan rahe tuu banno may you forever remain a wife [suhaagan = specifically, wife to a living husband].
tujhe du'aa'e.n de jaa'e.nge They'll give you their good wishes and prayers.
aaj kii raina ham logo.n ko Tonight, we
jhuum jhuumke gaana hai must dance and sing!
mujhe saajan ke ghar jaana hai... I must go to my husband's home.

mat puuchh mere man bairaagii Don't put questions to my heart, sage [bairaagi = a Hindu, specifically Vaisnava ascetic]
jiivan bhar ka vanvaas liya I'm banished for life.
ram ke ghar ko bhii tyaagii hai I'm even exiled from the house of Ram [Sita was cast out by her husband after her honor was impugned].
yeh kaalii-yug kii siita kii uljhan This is the predicament of the modern Sita.
har qadam pe uska haraan hu'aa I've been plagued every step of the way;
har moR pe raavaN ko dekha on each turn in the road, I've glimpsed Raavan [the King of Lanka, whose abduction of Sita later caused the aspersions against her virtue].
har qadam pe uska haraan hu'aa I've been plagued every step of the way;
har moR pe raavaN ko dekha at each turn I've spotted Raavan.
jab saiyya ka dhiiraj TuuTa When her love's steadfastness broke,
khud laa.ngh chala lakshman rekha Lakshman himself guided her across the point of no return. [Lakshman = Ram's brother, who took Sita into exile]
na ra.ng-mahaal usko bhaaya The pleasure palace didn't approve of her [rang mahal: palatial apartment used for festivities or entertaining courtesans];
saarii khushiyo.n ko taj bhaagii hai meanwhile, the crown continues to participate in the fun. (?)
yeh kaalii-yug kii siita kii uljhan This is the predicament of the modern Sita.
gaa maa gaa re gaa saa re paa

phuulo.n ke bistar pe jaagii I woke on a bed of flowers.
kaalii-yug kii siita kii uljhan This is the predicament of the modern Sita.
voh raam ke ghar ko bhii tyaagii haa'e I've even renounced the house of Ram.
