O~~~O~O`O~~~O O O O~~~

Jaane waalo.n zaraa...
O PASSERS-BY...JUST A MOMENT...

Mu.d ke dekho mujhe...
TURN AROUND TO LOOK AT ME,

Ek insaan hoo.n – Mai.n tumhaari tarah,
I’M A HUMAN BEING LIKE YOU,

Jaane waalo.n zaraa,
O PASSERS-BY, JUST A MOMENT,

Mu.d ke dekho mujhe,
TURN AROUND TO LOOK AT ME,

Ek insaan hoo.n – Mai.n tumhaari tarah,
I’M A HUMAN BEING LIKE YOU,

Jis ne sab ko rachaa, apne hee roop se,
THE ONE WHO CREATED EVERYONE WITH HIS OWN IMAGE

Uss kee pehchaan hoo.n, mai.n tumhaaree tarah,
I’M HIS SIGN LIKE YOU,

jaane waalo.n zaraa ...
O PASSERSBY, JUST A MOMENT...


iss anokhe jagat kee mai.n taqdeer r hoo.n,
OF THIS UNCOMMON WORLD, I’M THE DESTINY,

iss anokhe jagat kee mai.n taqdeer hoo.n,
OF THIS UNCOMMON WORLD, I’M THE DESTINY,

mai.n vidhaataa ke haatho.n kee, tasveer hoo.n,
MADE BY THE CREATOR’S HANDS, I’M A PICTURE,

ek tasveer hoo.n,
I’M A PICTURE,

iss jahaa.n ke liye, dhartii maa.n ke liye,
FOR THIS WORLD, FOR THE MOTHER-EARTH,

Shiv kaa vardaan hoo.n, mai.n tumhaaree tarah,
I’M SHIVA’S BOON LIKE YOU,

jaane waalo.n zaraa...
O PASSERS-BY, JUST A MOMENT...


mann ke a.ndar chhipaaye milan kee lagan,
CONCEALING IN THE MIND THE URGE TO MINGLE,

mann ke a.ndar chhipaaye, milan kee lagan,
CONCEALING IN THE MIND THE URGE TO MINGLE,

apne sooraj se hoo.n, ek bichha.dee kiran,
SEPARATED FROM MY SUN, I’M A STRAY BEAM,

ek bichha.dee kiran,
A STRAY BEAM

phir rahaa hoo.n bhaTaktaa, mai.n yahaa.n se vahaa.n
GOING ABOUT WANDERING HERE AND THERE,

aur pareshaan hoo.n, mai.n tumhaaree tarah,
AND I’M BEWILDERED LIKE YOU,

jaane waalo.n zaraa...
O PASSERS-BY, JUST A MOMENT...


mere paas aao chho.do yeh, saaraa bharam,
COME TO ME, ABANDON ALL THIS MISGIVING,

mere paas aao chho.do yeh, saaraa bharam,
COME TO ME, ABANDON ALL THIS MISGIVING,

jo meraa dukh vahee, hai tumhaaraa bheee gham,
WHAT’S MY SORROW, ‘TIS YOUR GRIEF TOO,

hai tumhaaraa bhee gham,
‘TIS YOUR GRIEF TOO,

dekhtaa hoo.n tumeh, jaanataa hoo.n tumeh,
I SEE YOU, I KNOW YOU,

laakh anjaan hoo.n , mai.n tumhaaree tarah,
I’M VERY MUCH NAIVE LIKE YOU.

Jaane waalo.n zaraa,
O PASSERS-BY, JUST A MOMENT,

Mu.d ke dekho mujhe,
TURN AROUND TO LOOK AT ME,

Ek insaan hoo.n – Mai.n tumhaari tarah,
I’M A HUMAN BEING LIKE YOU,

Jis ne sab ko rachaa, apne hee roop se,
THE ONE WHO CREATED EVERYONE WITH HIS OWN IMAGE

Uss kee pehchaan hoo.n, mai.n tumhaaree tarah,
I’M HIS SIGN LIKE YOU,

jaane waalo.n zaraa...
O PASSERS-BY...

NASIR.

The true opposite of love is not hate but indifference. Hate, bad as it is, at least treats the neighbour as a thou, whereas indifference turns the neighbour into an it, a thing. This is why we may say that there is actually one thing worse than evil itself and that is indifference to evil. In human relations the nadir of morality, the lowest point as far as Christian ethics is concerned, is manifest in the phrase, T couldn't care less.'
- Joseph Fletcher
