DO DIL MIL RAHE HAIN

gup-chup gup-chup chup chup... Secretly, silently...
do dil mil rahe hai.n magar chupke chupke... Two hearts are meeting, but quietly.
sabko ho rahii hai haa.n sabko ho rahii hai khabar chupke chupke Everyone is noticing; yes, everyone is quietly noticing.
do dil mil rahe hai.n magar chupke chupke Two hearts are meeting, but quietly and secretly.
saa.nso.n me.n baRii bekaraarii Their breaths are unsteady;
aa.nkho.n me.n ka'ii raat jage they've stayed away nights on end.
kabhii kahii.n lag jaa'e dil to Sometimes when you fall in love,
kahii.n phir dil na lage you aren't pleased by anything.
apne dil me.n zaraa thaam luu.n I'll just keep hold of my heart,
jaaduu ka mai.n ise naam duu.n since I recognize that this is magic.
jaaduu kar rahaa hai asar chupke chupke Quietly the magic is taking effect.
do dil mil rahe hai.n magar chupke chupke Two hearts are meeting, but quietly and secretly.
aise bhole bankar hai baiTHe They sit so innocently,
jaise koii baat nahii.n as if there's nothing at all going on.
sab kuchh nazar aa rahaa hai But everything is apparent (to those around them).
din hai yeh raat nahii.n This is broad daylight, not the dark of night.
kya hai kuchh bhii nahii.n hai agar What is it, if it's nothing at all?
ho.nTHo.n pe hai khaamoshi magar Their lips are silent, but...
baate.n kar rahii hai.n nazar chupke chupke silently their glances speak to each other.
do dil mil rahe hai.n magar chupke chupke Two hearts are meeting, but quietly and secretly.
kahii.n aag lagne se pahale Before flames burst into life,
uTHta hai aisa dhu'aa.n smoke like this arises.
jaisa hai idhar ka nazaara vaisa hii udhar ka samaa And it looks just like it does right here.
dil me.n kaisii kasak sii jagii What an ache awakes in the heart!
dono.n jaanib baraabar lagii Both sides seem (to feel it) equally.
dekho to idhar se udhar chupke chupke Look from one to the other, silently.
do dil mil rahe hai.n magar chupke chupke Two hearts are meeting, but quietly.
sabko ho rahii hai khabar chupke chupke Quietly, everyone is noticing.
do dil mil rahe hai.n magar chupke chupke Two hearts are meeting, but quietly.
gup-chup gup-chup chup chup... Secretly, silently...
magar chupke chupke... But quietly...

 

 MERI MEHBOOBA

kisii roz tumse mulaaqaat hogii... Some day I will meet you...
merii jaan us din mere saath hogii My love, from that day forth, you will be with me.
magar kab na jaane yeh barsaat hogii But who knows when you'll shower down your love;
mera dil hai pyaasa mera dil akela my heart is thirsty, my lonely heart!
zaraa tasviir se tuu nikalke saamne aa Just step out from the picture (in my mind) and come before me!
merii mahabuuba My love
merii taqdiir hai tuu machalke saamne aa You're my fate; fight out (of the picture) and come before me!
merii mahabuuba... My love...
zaraa tasviir se tuu nikalke saamne aa Step out from the picture (in my mind) and come before me!
merii mahabuuba My love
nahii.n yaad kabse magar mai.n huu.n jabse I don't even remember since when, perhaps as long as I've existed,
mere dil me.n terii muhabbat hai tabse I have loved you.
mai.n shaayar huu.n tera tuu merii ghazal hai I'm your poet, and you are my poem.
baRii beqaraarii mujhe aajkal hai... Lately, I'm restless with longing for you.
zaraa tasviir se tuu nikalke saamne aa Just step out from the picture (in my mind) and come before me!
merii mahabuuba... My love...
zaraa tasviir se tuu nikalke saamne aa Just step out from the picture (in my mind) and come before me!
merii mahabuuba My love
jaane kahaa.n se lo aa ga'ii hai voh Who knows where she's come from!
bhalaa kaun hai voh hame.n bhii bataa'o No matter who she is, just tell me!
yeh tasviir uskii hame.n bhii dikhaa'o At least show me this picture of her!
ye qisse sabhii ko sunaate nahii.n hai This story shouldn't be told to just everyone,
magar dosto.n se chhupaate nahii.n hai but you can't hide it from friends!
tere dard-e-dil ki davaa ham kare.nge I'll cure the pain in your heart;
na kuchh kar sake.n to du'aa ham kare.nge... If I can't do anything, then I'll pray for you!
taRapkar aa'egii voh tujhe mil jaa'egii voh She'll struggle out (of the picture) and come; you'll meet her,
terii mahabuuba your love!
kisii roz tumse mulaaqaat hogii... Some day I will meet you...
merii jaan us din mere saath hogii My love, from that day forth, you will be with me.
magar kab na jaane yeh barsaat hogii But who knows when you'll shower your love upon me;
mera dil hai pyaasa mera dil akela my heart is thirsty, my lonely heart!
zaraa tasviir se tuu nikalke saamne aa Just step out from the picture (in my mind) and come before me!
merii mahabuuba... My love

NAHI HONA THA

o rabba o rabba O God, O God,
yeh muhabbat bhii ek ibaadat hai This love is a form of worship, just as
aur yeh ibaadat bhii ek muhabbat hai worship is a form of love.
yeh bhii diiwaanagii hai voh bhii diiwaanagii hai This is insanity, just as that is.
yeh bhii dil kii lagii hai voh bhii dil kii lagii hai This is my heart's desire, just as that is.
mujhko kya ho gaya sabko hairaanagii hai What has happened to me? Everyone is astounded.
ho gaya hai mujhe pyaar... Love has happened to me...
nahii.n hona tha... It shouldn't have happened...
lekin ho gaya but it did happen.
ho gaya hai mujhe pyaar... I have fallen in love...
is pyaar ke yeh kis moR par At what turning point in this love
voh chal diye mujhko chhoRkar did he let me go and leave?
aage ja na sakuu.n piichhe ja na sakuu.n I can't go ahead; I can't go back.
gam dikha na sakuu.n gam chhupa na sakuu.n... I can't show my sorrow; I can't hide my grief...
saamne mere aag pe dariya Duubke jaana paar Before me, a river on fire, which, drowning, I must cross.
ho gaya hai mujhe pyaar... I've fallen in love...
nahii.n hona tha... It shouldn't have happened...
lekin ho gaya but it did happen.
ho gaya hai mujhe pyaar... I've fallen in love...
zamaana dilo.n ko nahii.n jaanta hai The world doesn't understand hearts, and
zamaane ko yeh dil nahii.n maanta hai this heart doesn't heed the world at all.
nahii.n aur koii faqat ishq hai voh Nothing else but love
jo aashiq kii nazaro.n ko pahachaanta hai... recognizes (the importance of) a lover's glance...
ab vaqt faisle ka nazdiik aa gaya hai Now the time of decision has neared.
kya faisla karuu.n mai.n dil ne to yeh kahaa hai What decisions shall I make? The heart has spoken it,
dil ne to yeh kahaa hai... the heart has spoken it:
jiine ka hai shauq to marne ko ho jaa taiyaar If you prefer to live, prepare yourself to die.
ho gaya hai mujhe pyaar... I've fallen in love...
nahii.n hona tha... It shouldn't have happened...
lekin ho gaya but it did happen.
ho gaya hai mujhe pyaar... I've fallen in love...
vaapas kar aa'ii baabul ko mai.n shaadii ka joRa I sent my wedding clothes back to my father;
mai.n ne pyaar ko pahan liya hai pyaar ko sar pe oRHa instead, I have donned love, I have wrapped my head in love (instead of a veil in the marriage ceremony).
phe.nk di mai.n ne galii me.n jhuuTHii rasmo.n kii a.nguuTHii I threw a ring representing false customs into the alley.
toR diye sab laaj ke pahare mai.n har qaid se chhuuTii I broke all restraints of modesty and cast off all obligations.
pag pag THokar khaa'uu.n chaltii jaa'uu.n a.nkhiyaa.n miiche Even if at every step I stumble, I will go, eyes closed (unafraid).
aage mere saajan ka ghar duniya rah ga'ii piichhe Ahead lies my beloved's home; behind remains the world.
aa'ii ki du'aa maa.nguu.n mai.n bichhaRa yaar mujhe mil jaa'e I come with the prayer that I will be united with my lost love
mere piiro.n murshid mera pyaar mujhe mil jaa'e My love, my worship, may I find him!
apne laal dupaTTa mai.n ne dil ke khuun se ra.ngaa... I dyed my scarf red with the blood of my heart [red = trad. color of bridal outfit]
yeh sa.ngam ho jaa'e saagar se mil jaa'e ga.nga This union shall happen; the Ganges will meet the sea. [double meaning: Ganga is also the heroine's name]
saagar se mil jaa'e ga.nga... The Ganges will meet the sea.
nahii.n hona tha... It shouldn't have happened...
lekin ho gaya but it did happen.
ho gaya hai mujhe pyaar... I've fallen in love...
nahii.n hona tha... It shouldn't have happened...
lekin ho gaya but it did happen.
ho gaya hai mujhe pyaar... I've fallen in love...
merii mahabuuba... My love...
