223. Translation of Sad Songs of Rafi: Log Kehte Hain....


Movie: Bahu Begum (1967)
Lyrics: Sahir Ludhianvi
Music: Roshan

Rafi Sahaab’s touching number: Log Kehte Hain.....

Roman Transliteration/English Translation of the original lyrics:



log kehte hai.n ke hamm, tum se kinaaraa kar le.n,
PEOPLE SAY THAT WE SHOULD KEEP ALOOF FROM YOU,

tum jo keh doh, toh sitam, ye bhee gavaaraa kar le.n,
IF YOU SAY SO, THEN THIS TYRANNY TOO WE’LL BEAR,

log kehte hai.n ...
PEOPLE SAY...


tum ne jis haal-e, -pareshaa.n se nikaalaa thaa hame.n,
THE WRETCHED STATE FROM WHICH YOU HAD PULLED US OUT,

aasraa de ke, mohabbat kaa sa.mbhaalaa thaa hame.n,
BY SHELTERING US WITH LOVE, YOU’D SUPPORTED US,

sochte hai.n ke wohee,
WE’RE OF THE MIND, THAT THE SAME...

sochte hai.n ke wohee, haal dobaaraa kar le.n,
WE’RE OF THE MIND THAT THE SAME STATE WE SHOULD REVERT TO,

tum jo keh doh toh sitam, yeh bhee gavaaraa kar le.n,
IF YOU SAY SO, THEN THIS TYRANNY TOO WE’LL BEAR,

log kehte hai.n...
PEOPLE SAY...


yoo.n bhee ab tum se, mulaaqaat nahee.n hone kee,
OTHERWISE TOO, THERE WON’T BE ANY VISITING YOU NOW,

mil bhee jaao..
EVEN IF WE MEET...

mil bhee jaao toh, koyee baat nahee.n hone kee,
EVEN IF WE MEET, NO PURPOSE WILL BE SERVED,

aakhree baar bas ab,
JUST FOR THE LAST TIME NOW...,

aakhree baar bas ab, zikr tumhaaraa kar le.n
JUST FOR THE LAST TIME NOW, LET’S DISCUSS ABOUT Y0U,

tum jo keh doh toh sitam, yeh bhee gavaraa kar le.n,
IF YOU SAY SO, THEN THIS TYRANNY TOO WE’LL BEAR,

log kehte hai.n....
PEOPLE SAY....


aakhree baar khyaalo.n me.n, bulaa le.n tum ko,
FOR THE LAST TIME LET’S RECALL YOU TO MEMORY,

aakhree baar kaleje se, lagaa le.n tum ko
FOR THE LAST TIME, LET’S BRING YOU CLOSER TO THE HEART,

aur phir apne ta.dapne,
AND LATER, OUR AGONISING...

aur phir apne ta.dapane kaa, nazaaraa kar le.n,
AND LATER, LET’S WATCH OUR AGONISING SIGHT,

tum jo keh doh, toh sitam yeh bhee gavaaraa kar le.n
IF YOU SAY SO, THEN THIS TYRANNY TOO WE’LL BEAR,

log kehte hai.n ke hamm, tum se kinaaraa kar le.n,
PEOPLE SAY THAT WE SHOULD KEEP ALOOF FROM YOU,

tum jo keh doh, toh sitam, ye bhee gavaaraa kar le.n,
IF YOU SAY SO, THEN THIS TYRANNY TOO WE’LL BEAR,

log kehte hai.n ...
PEOPLE SAY...

NASIR.

Love is that condition in which the happiness of another
person is essential to your own....Robert A. Heinlein
