Music I Love, Reflections

Kaho kya khayaal hai…

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.” 

          ― Pablo Neruda100 Love Sonnets

Song – Kya khayaal hai (the dewarists)


Dhadkano ki taal baaje
saanson ka iktaara..
Aangan mein sajaye baithein,
Sooraj chanda taara..

Chalo baant le hum Zindagi
Zara aaj yun kar le…

Kaho kya khayaal hai...



{Lets do this today,
Share our lives..
Listen to the hummings of the breaths
as they dance with the heartbeats,
Lets sit around
along with the sun, moon and stars..
What do you think?}


Ek jahaan chota-sa apna
Ek jahaan tumhara..
Muskaan chaahe meethi ho
ya aansu ek khara..


Chalo baant le gham aur khushi
thodi guftagu kar le…


Kaho kya khayaal hai…


{This small world of  mine
that small world of yours,
be it a sweet smile or a salty tear,
Lets share our happiness and sorrows
lets converse a bit..
What do you say?}


Aap se do baatein karne
Yaadon ko jebon mein bharne
Aaye hain hum kuch dino ke baad..
Yaaron ki sohbat mein aa ke
dheere se kuch gungunaa ke..
Yun hi kat jaate hai din aur raat..



{To talk with you and
to fill these pockets with memories,
I’ve come to meet..after all these days..
These days and night flow swiftly
when in the presence of close friends 
humming..something, anything…so slowly..}



Mutthi mein tum bheench laana saawan haraa..
Ek dhanak tum bhi tod laana falak se zaraa..
Mutthi mutthi baant lenge kirano ka katraa..
Ek sikka dhoop humse lenaa ‘gar kam lagaa..


{Bring the rains and greenery with you
I’ll pluck a rainbow from the skies..
We’ll share the droplets of the rays
and take some sunshine of mine, if its less for you..}



Betuk hi.. Be matlab.. hans le hum..
Kyun na is lamhe mein 
haan jee le hum..

Chalo baant le hum Zindagi
zaraa aaj yun kar le..


Kaho kya khayaal hai…


{Lets laugh.. meaninglessly, futilely, nonsensical.
And why not live in this moment
now..
Lets do this today,
share our lives..
What do you think?}


Aap se do baatein karne
Yaadon ko jebon mein bharne,
Aaye hain hum kuch dino ke baad..
Yaaron ki sohbat mein aa ke
dheere se kuch gunguna ke..
Yun hi kat jaate hai din aur raat…
