88. Translation of Rafi Song: Boondein Nahin Sitaare...


From: SAAJAN KI SAHELI (1981)
Lyrics: Majrooh Sultanpuri
Music: Usha Khanna



Romantic Rafi caught up in the passion of wet weather singing: Boonden Nahin Sitaare...

Roman Transliteration/English Translation of the original lyrics:





Boonde.n Nahi.n Sitaare
NOT DROPS, STARS

Tapke hai.n Kahkashaa.n Se,
HAVE DROPPED FROM THE GALAXIES,

Boonde.n Nahi.n Sitaare
NOT DROPS, STARS

Tapke hai.n Kahkashaa.n Se,
HAVE DROPPED FROM THE GALAXIES,

Sadqe Utar Rahe Hai.n
OFFERINGS ARE DESCENDING

Tum par Yeh Aasmaa.n Se.
ON YOU FROM THE HEAVEN.

Boonde.n Nahi.n Sitaare
NOT DROPS, STARS

Tapke hai.n Kahkashaa.n Se,
HAVE DROPPED FROM THE GALAXIES.


Moti Ke Rangg-Rut Ke,
OF PEARLY HUES

Qatre Damak Rahe Hai.n
THE DROPS ARE GLISTENING,

Ya Reshmi Lato.n mei.n,
OR IN THE SILKY TRESSES

Jugnu Chamak Rahe Hai.n
THE FIRE-FLIES ARE GLOWING,

Aa.nchal mei.n Jaise Bijli,
IN THE VEIL AS IF THE LIGHTNING

Kaundeh Yahaa.n Wahaa.n Se.
IS HERE AND THERE FLASHING,

Sadqe Utar Rahe Hai.n
OFFERINGS ARE DESCENDING

Tum par Yeh Aasmaa.n Se.
ON YOU FROM THE HEAVEN.

Boonde.n Nahi.n Sitaare
NOT DROPS, STARS

Tapke hai.n Kahkashaa.n Se,
HAVE DROPPED FROM THE GALAXIES.


Dekhe toh Koi 'Aalam,
FOR SOMEONE TO OBSERVE THE CONDITION

Bheege Se Pairhan Kaa
OF THE RAINSOAKED GARMENTS,

Paani mei.n Hai yeh Sholaa,
IS THIS A FLAME IN THE DOWNPOUR

Yaa Noor Hai Badan Kaa,
OR A BODY OF CELESTIAL LIGHT!

Ang.daai Le Rahe Hai.n,
STIRRING UP

Armaa.n Jawaa.n Jawaa.n Se,
ARE THE STIMULATING, YOUNG DESIRES.

Sadqe Utar Rahe Hai.n
OFFERINGS ARE DESCENDING

Tum par Yeh Aasmaa.n Se.
ON YOU FROM THE HEAVEN.

Boonde.n, Nahi.n Sitaare
NOT DROPS, STARS

Tapke hai.n Kahkashaa.n Se,
HAVE DROPPED FROM THE GALAXIES.


Pehloo Mei.n Aake Mere,
ON COMING BY MY SIDE

Kya Cheez Lag Rahi Ho
HOW BEAUTIFUL YOU LOOK!

Baaho.n ke Daayre mei.n,
WITHIN THE CIRCLE OF (MY) ARMS

Tasveer Lag Rahi Ho
PICTURE-PERFECT YOU LOOK,

Hairaan hoo.n ke Tum ko
PERPLEXED AM I THAT: – YOU

Dekhoo.n Kahaa.n Kahaa.n Se,
FROM WHAT ALL ANGLES SHOULD I OBSERVE.

Sadqe Utar Rahe Hai.n
OFFERINGS ARE DESCENDING

Tum par Yeh Aasmaa.n Se.
ON YOU FROM THE HEAVEN.

Boonde.n Nahi.n Sitaare
NOT DROPS, STARS

Tapke hai.n Kahkashaa.n Se,
HAVE DROPPED FROM THE GALAXIES.


NASIR.
