Life

Tujhse naaraaz nahin, Zindagi! hairan hoon main Hairaan hoon mainTere masoom Sawaalon se, pareshaan hoon mainPareshaan hoon main


Dear Life! I’m not mad at you, just a little weary …
Stumped by the seemingly innocent questions you keep throwing at me*


Jeene ke liye socha hi nahin, dard sambhaalne hongeMuskuraayein to, muskuraane ke karz utaarne hongeMuskuraaun kabhi to lagta hai, Jaise hothon pe karz rakha hai(Tujhse naaraaz nahin…)


Somehow I never thought, that I’ll have to handle pains in order to live happily. Never realized that I’ll have to pay a debt for each smile. Now every time I smile, I am reminded of the debt that’s weighing on my lips


Zindagi tere gham ne humein, rishte naye samjhaayeMile to humein, dhoop mein mile, chaaon ke thande saaye(Tujhse naaraaz nahin…)


Dear Life! But it’s not as if these pains are without purpose… because each pain makes me aware of things I never noticed before…It is only in the scorching heat that we come to know of the relief a cool shade brings**


Aaj agar bhar aayin hain, boonde baras jaayengiKal kya pata, inke liye aankhein taras jaayengiJaane kahan ghum hua, kahan khoyaEk aansoo chhupa ke rakha tha(Tujhse naaraaz nahin…)


So today, if my eyes well up, I’ll cry as long as I want to
Because who knows, tomorrow I may long for these very tears


And then, where will I look for this lone tear drop,
That I had hidden away for so long?

Lyrics by Gulzar from the film Masoom (1983)
