ईश्वर तेरी इस दुनिया में….

यूँ कब तक जीते जायें हम ?

और जलते हुए इन रस्तों पर​….

यूँ गीत कहाँ तक गायें हम ?

कठपुतलियों के इन शहरों में-

इन्सां को कौन पूछता है ?

इन आग लगाने वालों में-

सावन को कौन पूछता है ?

अब इन्द्रधनुष के रंगों में-

सिर्फ़ लाल रंग क्यूँ दिखता है ?

इन गीतों की इस सरगम में-

क्यूँ चीत्कार सा सुनता है ?

चुभते हुए इन काँटों में-

फूल देख कब तक मुस्कायें हम ?

ईश्वर तेरी इस दुनिया में….

यूँ कब तक जीते जायें हम ?

जहाँ रक्षक ही तो भक्षक है-

और चोर ही बन गया प्रहरी है,

जहाँ भेस बदल कर दानव ही

देखो देवदूत-सा दिखता है

और शैतान भी शर्मा जायेगा,

जब अपने मुँह से वो कहता है-

“जो होता है वो होने दो !

जो रोता है उसे रोने दो !”

तपते हुए इस घायल दिल पर​—–

चाँदनी का मरहम कब तक लगायें हम ?

ईश्वर तेरी इस दुनिया में….

यूँ कब तक जीते जायें हम ?

म​णि

Ishwar teri is duniya mein….

Yun kab tak jeete jaayein hum ?

Aur jalte hue in raston par….

Yun geet kahaan tak gaayein hum ?

Kathputliyon ke in sheharon mein-

Insaan ko kaun poochhta hai?

In aag lagaane waalon mein-

Saawan ko kaun poochhta hai?

Ab indradhanush ke rangon mein-

Sirf laal rang kyun dikhta hai?

In geeton ki is sargam mein-

Kyun cheetkaar sa sunta hai?

Chubhte hue in kaanton mein-

Phool dekh kab tak muskaayein hum?

Ishwar teri is duniya mein….

Yun kab tak jeete jaayein hum ?

Jahaan rakshak hi to bhakshak hai,

Aur chor hi ban gaya prehari hai,

Jahaan bhes badal kar daanav hi-

Dekho, Devdoot-sa dikhta hai

Aur shaitaan bhi sharmaa jaayega,

Jab apne munh se wo kehta hai-

“Jo hota hai wo hone do!

Jo rota hai use rone do!”

Tapte hue is ghaayal dil par,

Chaandni ka marham kab tak lagaayein hum?

Ishwar teri is duniya mein….

Yun kab tak jeete jaayein hum ?

The English translation of these lines are as follows-

O God! In this world of yours….

Till when do I live in this way?

On these burning paths…..

Till when do I sing songs this way?

In these cities of puppets-

Who cares about humans?

Amongst those who want to start a fire-

Who cares about the rains?

Now in the colours of rainbow-

Why do I see only the red colour?

In the notations of these songs-

Why do I hear heart-rending cries ?

Amongst these piercing thorns-

Till when do I see the flowers and smile?

O God! In this world of yours….

Till when do I live in this way?

Where the protector himself is the predator,

And thief himself has become the sentinel

Where demon has guised himself-

And looks like a Godsent angel

And the Devil himself will be embarrassed,

When he utters these foul-mouthed words-

“Whatever happens,Let it happen!

Whoever cries, Let him cry!”

On this fevered and wounded heart of mine…

Till when do I apply moonlight as the medication?

O God! In this world of yours….

Till when do I live in this way?

Raksha Bandhan is a festival to celebrate the bond between a brother and a sister. A sister ties a Rakhi ( a silk thread) on her brother’s hand and asks him to protect her always….The brother in return promises to take care of her always……

Posting this song to wish A Happy Raksha Bandhan to all. The lyrics of the song are as below, I have also tried to translate each line in English….

 

(Mere Bhaiya, Mere Chanda, Mere Anmol Ratan

….My brother, my moon, my priceless gem

Tere badle mein zamaane ki koi cheez na loon) -2

….In your place I can never take anything that this world has to offer

Teri saanson ki kasam khaake, hawa chalti hai

…..The breeze blows after pledging by your breath

Tere chehre ki jhalak paake, bahaar aati hai

…..The bloom starts after a glimpse of your face

Ek pal bhi meri nazaron se tu jo ojhal ho

…..If you hide from my vision even for one moment

Har taraf meri nazar tujhko pukaar aati hai

…..My eyes search for you in every direction

(Mere Bhaiya Mere Chanda Mere Anmol Ratan

….My brother, my moon, my priceless gem

Tere badle mein zamaane ki koi cheez na loon) -2

….In your place I can never take anything that this world has to offer

Tere sehre ki mehekti hui ladiyon ke liye

….For the garlands of your Sehra (a flowery head-dress worn by the groom)

Anginat phool ummeedo he chune hain maine

….I have plucked innumerable flowers of hope

Wo bhi din aaye ki un khwaabo ki taabeer mile

….May that day come when those dreams are realized

Teri khaatir jo haseen khwaab bune hain maine

….The beautiful dreams that I have dreamt for you

 

(Mere Bhaiya, Mere Chanda, Mere Anmol Ratan

….My brother, my moon, my priceless gem

Tere badle mein zamaane ki koi cheez na loon) -2

….In your place I can never take anything that this world has to offer

This is a Lori/Lullaby, I love to sing, I translated the words to English as best as I could…..posting the lyrics and the English translation below…..

 

Nanhi Kali Sone Chali

….The little flower-bud is going to sleep
Hawa Dheere Aana

….Breeze! Please blow gently

Neend Bhare, Pankh Liye, Jhoolaa Jhula Jaana

….In your sleep-laden wings, rock her as in a cradle
Nanhi Kali Sone Chali

….The little flower-bud is going to sleep

Hawa Dheere Aana

….Breeze! Please blow gently

Neend Bhare, Pankh Liye, Jhoola Jhula Jaana

….In your sleep-laden wings, rock her as in a cradle
Nanhi Kali Sone Chali

….The little flower-bud is going to sleep

Chaand Kiran Si Gudiya Naazon Ki Hai Pali  2

…..The Doll who is like a moon-ray has been brought up very delicately with care
Aaj Agar Chaandaniya Aana Meri Gali

…..Dear moonlight! If today you come my way
Gun Gun Gun Geet Koi Haule Haule Gaana

…..Hum a song to her gently
Neend Bhare Pankh Liye, Jhoola Jhula Jaana

….In your sleep-laden wings, rock her as in a cradle

Resham Ki Dor Agar Pairon Ko Uljhaaye  2

…..If a silk-chord entangle her feet
Ghungharu Ka Daana Koi Shor Machaa Jaaye

…..If musical grain from her anklet makes a noise
Raani Meri Jaage To Phir Nindiya Tu Behlaana

…..If my Queen wakes up, then Sleep! You amuse her
Neend Bhare, Pankh Liye, Jhoola Jhula Jaana

….In your sleep-laden wings, rock her as in a cradle
Nanhi Kali Sone Chali Hawa Dheere Aana

….The little flower-bud is going to sleep, Breeze! Please blow gently
