For keeping company from one existence to another

SAU SAU BAAR MAINE JANAM LIYE...

For keeping company from one existence to another

A hundred of times I took birth,


JANAM JANAM KA SAATH HAI, NIBHAANE KO,
For keeping company from one existence to another

SAU SAU BAAR MAINE,  JANAM LIYE...
A hundred of times I took birth!

  1. This really is an excellent dedication to the Great Rafi. It's incredibly difficult to find any english translations of Hindi/Urdu songs. I needed 'Tere Mere Sapne' inorder to send to a friend and now i have found so many others thanks to you - well done!

  2. Thanks a lot, Sofia!
    I'm glad you liked the translations of Rafi Sahaab's songs. The whole idea here is to disseminate Rafi Sahaab's songs to the world since English is a universal language.
