PANCHHI NADIYAN PAWAN KE JHOKEN

pa.nchhii nadiyaa.n pawan ke jho.nke Birds, rivers, gusts of wind;

CHORUS:
pa.nchhii nadiyaa.n pawan ke jho.nke Birds, rivers, gusts of wind;
koii sarhad na inhe.n roke no border can stop them.
sarhade.n insaano.n ke li'e hai.n Borders are for human beings;
socho tumne aur mai.n ne kya paaya insaan hoke think, what did you and I gain by being human?
Chorus
jo ham dono.n pa.nchhii hote If we both were birds,
tairte ham is niile gagan me.n pa.nkh pasaare we'd spread our wings and float through this blue sky.
saarii dhartii apnii hotii apne hote saare nazaare All the earth would be ours; all the sights would be ours.
khulii fizaa'o.n me.n uRte... We'd soar through the limitless expanse...
apne dilo.n me.n ham saara pyaar samaake with love abounding in our hearts.
Chorus
jo mai.n hotii nadiya aur tum pawan ke jho.nke to kya hota... If I were a river and you were the breeze, what would happen?
pawan ke jho.nke nadii ke tan ko jab chhuute hai.n... When breezes touch the river's body...
lahare.n hii lahare.n bantii hai.n wave upon wave is created.
ham dono.n jo milte to kuchh aisa hota If we met, something like that would happen.
sab kahate ye lahare.n lahar Everyone says that these waves,
jahaa.n bhii jaa'e.n inko na koii Tohke wherever they may go, aren't hunted by anyone.
Chorus
pa.nchhii nadiyaa.n pawan ke jho.nke Birds, rivers, gusts of wind;
koii sarhad na inhe.n roke no border can stop them.

 

 AISA LAGTA HAI

aisa lagta hai jo na hu'aa hone ko hai It seems as though what has never happened, must now happen.
aisa lagta hai ab dil mera khone ko hai It seems as though I must now lose my heart.
varna dil kyo.n dhaRakta saa.nse.n kyo.n ruktii Otherwise, why would my heart pound? Why would my breath catch?
nii.nde.n merii kyo.n uR jaatii Why would my sleep go flying?
aisa lagta hai jo na hu'aa hone ko hai It seems as though what has never happened, must now happen.
aisa lagta hai ab dil mera khone ko hai It seems as though I must now lose my heart.
varna dil kyo.n dhaRakta saa.nse.n kyo.n ruktii Otherwise, why would my heart pound? Why would my breath catch?
nii.nde.n merii kyo.n uR jaatii Why would my sleep go flying?
aisa lagta hai jo na hu'aa hone ko hai It seems as though what has never happened, must now happen.
koii cheharaa nigaaho.n pe chhaane lagaa My glances have begun to be drawn to a face;
koii ab roz khwaabo.n me.n aane lagaa nightly I've begun to dream of it.
aa'ii rut jo na'ii jaage armaan ka'ii A new season is upon us; so many dreams awake!
mausam koii gazal jaise gaane lagaa The weather, like a poem, has begun to sing to me.
aisa lagta hai jaise nashaa hone ko hai It seems as if this intoxication is inevitable.
aisa lagta hai hosh mera khone ko hai It seems as though I must lose my wits.
varna dil kyo.n dhaRakta saa.nse.n kyo.n ruktii Otherwise, why would my heart pound? Why would my breath catch?
nii.nde.n merii kyo.n uR jaatii Why would my sleep go flying?
aisa lagta hai jo na hu'aa hone ko hai It seems as though what has never happened, must now happen.
mahakii mahakii fizaa ne lii a.ngaRaa'iyaa.n The perfumed season stretches its limbs;
niilii niilii hai.n baadal kii parchhaa'iyaa.n the shadows of the clouds are blue.
THa.nDHii THa.nDHii hawaa la'ii raag naya A cool breeze brings with it a new song,
guu.njii guu.njii sii hai.n jaise shahanaa'iyaa.n which plays in my head like the shehnai (wedding instrument).
aisa lagta hai koii mera hone ko hai It seems as though someone must become mine;
aisa lagta hai har faasala khone ko hai it seems as though every distance between us must be dispelled.
varna dil kyo.n dhaRakta saa.nse.n kyo.n ruktii Otherwise, why would my heart pound? Why would my breath catch?
nii.nde.n merii kyo.n uR jaatii Why would my sleep go flying?
aisa lagta hai jo na hu'aa hone ko hai It seems as though what has never happened, must now happen.
aisa lagta hai ab dil mera khone ko hai It seems as though I must now lose my heart.
varna dil kyo.n dhaRakta saa.nse.n kyo.n ruktii Otherwise, why would my heart pound? Why would my breath catch?
nii.nde.n merii kyo.n uR jaatii Why would my sleep go flying?

RAAT KI HATHELI PAR

CHORUS:
raat kii hathelii par chaa.nd jagmagaata hai... On the palm of the night, the moon glitters.
uskii narm kirNo.n me.n tumko dekhta huu.n to In its soft rays, I look at you, and
dil dhaRak-sa jaata hai... my heart starts to pound.
raat kii hathelii par chaa.nd jagmagaata hai... On the palm of the night, the moon glitters.
tum kahaa.n se aa'ii ho kis nagar ko jaa'o'gii... Where have you come from; what city are you going to?,
sochta huu.n mai.n hairaan I wonder, astounded.
chaa.nd jaisa yeh chehara that this face is like the moon;
raat jaisii ye zulfe.n these locks of hair, like the night.
hai.n jagaa'e sau armaan A hundred desires have awakened within me!
ik nasha sa aa.nkho.n me.n dhiire dhiire chhaata hai (The sight of your face is like) a narcotic that gradually clouds my eyesight.
Chorus
merii is tanhaa'ii me.n mere is viiraane me.n... Into my loneliness, into this place of desolation,
ra.ng leke tum aa'ii you came, bringing such color!
phir bhii sochta huu.n mai.n Even so, I wonder,
kya yahaa.n tum sach-much ho are you really here,
ya ho sirf parchhaa'ii or are you only an illusion,
khwaab jaise banta hai aur TuuT jaata hai like a dream that is formed only to be destroyed?
Chorus

 

TAAL PE JAB

taal pe jab yeh zi.ndagaanii chalii... Since life began to move to this beat,
ham hai.n diiwaane we've gone mad for each other;
ham hai.n diiwaane yeh kahaanii chalii as our story progressed, we went mad for each other.
taal pe jab yeh zi.ndagaanii chalii... When life began to move to this beat...
ham hai.n diiwaane yeh kahaanii chalii as our story progressed, we went mad for each other.
terii nazar kii dhuup hai jisne mujhko ruup diya hai It's the sunlight of your gaze that has made me beautiful.
nikhar ga'ii huu.n sa.nwar ga'ii huu.n jabse pyaar kiya hai I've been purified, I've been perfected since I fell in love.
terii nazar kii dhuup hai jisne mujhko ruup diya hai It's the sunlight of your gaze that has made me beautiful.
nikhar ga'ii huu.n sa.nwar ga'ii huu.n jabse pyaar kiya hai I've been purified, I've been perfected since I fell in love.
sach to yeh hai sanam hai yeh tera karam This is the truth, beloved; this is all your doing.
hosh saara ga.mvaanke diiwaanii chalii I lost all my wits and went mad for you
taal pe jab yeh zi.ndagaanii chalii... when life began to move to this beat.
ham hai.n diiwaane yeh kahaanii chalii as our story progressed, we went mad for each other.
sach kahata huu.n mai.n ne jabse thaama hai yeh aa.nchal I tell you truly, since I caught hold of your scarf,
merii duniya me.n har pal hai jaise koii halchal each moment in my world is tumultuous.
sach kahata huu.n mai.n ne jabse thaama hai yeh aa.nchal I tell you truly, since I caught hold of your scarf,
merii duniya me.n har pal hai jaise koii halchal each moment in my world is tumultuous.
sapne sajne lage saa.ns bajne lage I began to embroider dreams of you; my breath became unsteady;
badala mausam hawaa jo suhaanii chalii the beautiful breeze that swept over me changed the entire season.
taal pe jab yeh zi.ndagaanii chalii... Since life began to move to this beat,
ham hai.n diiwaane yeh kahaanii chalii as this story progressed, we've gone mad for each other.
