Movie: NARTAKI  (1963)

Lyrics: Shakeel Badayuni
Music: Ravi


Romantic Rafi’s melodious touch: zindagi ke safar me.n akele theh hamm….

Roman transliteration/English translation of the original Urdu-Hindi Lyrics:

zindagee ke safar me.n akele theh hamm,
IN LIFE’S JOURNEY, I WAS ALONE,


mil gaye tum toh dil ko, sahaara milaa,
AS I STUMBLED ON YOU, THE HEART FOUND A SUPPORT,


aa gaye ek naye raaste par qadam,
TOWARDS A NEW PATH MOVED THE STEPS,


jab tumharee nazar kaa, ishaara milaa,
WHEN I GOT A GESTURE OF YOUR GLANCE,


zindagee ke safar me.n, akele theh hamm…
IN LIFE’S JOURNEY, I WAS ALONE…


uljhane.n theeh.n Khayaalo.n pe chhayee huwee,
CONFUSIONS HAD CLOUDED THE THOUGHTS,


Gham kee mauje.n theeh.n dil me.n samaayee huwee,
WAVES OF SORROWS HAD SETTLED IN THE HEART,


uljhane.n theeh.n Khayaalo.n pe chhayee huwee,
CONFUSIONS HAD CLOUDED THE THOUGHTS,


Gham kee mauje.n theeh.n dil me.n samaayee huwee,
WAVES OF SORROWS HAD SETTLED IN THE HEART,


tumne jab dil kee kashtee me.n rakkhaa qadam,
WHEN YOU STEPPED INTO THE HEART’S BOAT


hamm ko toofan me.n bhee, kanaara milaa
I FOUND THE SHORE DESPITE THE STORM,


zindagee ke safar me.n, akele theh hamm,
IN LIFE’S JOURNEY, I WAS ALONE,


mil gaye tum toh dil ko, sahaara milaa
AS I STUMBLED ON YOU, THE HEART FOUND A SUPPORT,


zindagee ke safar me.n, akele theh hamm…
IN LIFE’S JOURNEY, I WAS ALONE…


zindagee ko tamanna theeh hamraaz kee,
LIFE DESIRED A CONFIDANTE,


saaz-e-dil ko zaroorat theeh awaaz kee,
CHORDS OF THE HEART NEEDED A VOICE,


zindagee ko tamanna theeh hamraaz kee,
LIFE DESIRED A CONFIDANTE,


saaz-e-dil ko zaroorat theeh awaaz kee,
CHORDS OF THE HEART NEEDED A VOICE,


tumne jab muskuraa kar pukaaraa hame.n,
WHEN YOU CALLED ME WITH A SMILE,


zindagee ko, khushee ka nazaara milaa,
LIFE LOCATED A JOYOUS SIGHT,


zindagee ke safar me.n, akele theh hamm,
IN LIFE’S JOURNEY, I WAS ALONE,


mil gaye tum toh dil ko, sahaara mila
AS I STUMBLED ON YOU, THE HEART FOUND A SUPPORT,


zindagee ke safar me.n, akele theh hamm…
IN LIFE’S JOURNEY, I WAS ALONE…


ab zamaane kaa Dar hai naa dunyaa kaa Gham,
NOW THERE’S NEITHER FEAR NOR ANGUISH OF THE WORLD,


apnee taqdeer par naaz karte hai.n hamm,
PROUD AM I OF MY DESTINY,


ab zamaane kaa Dar hai naa dunyaa kaa Gham,
NOW THERE’S NEITHER FEAR NOR ANGUISH OF THE WORLD,


apnee taqdeer par naaz karte hai.n hamm,
PROUD AM I OF MY DESTINY,


aaj aankhon ko jalwe tumhaare mile,
THE EYES BEHELD YOUR MANIFESTATIONS TODAY,


aaj haatho.n ko daaman, tumhaara milaa
TODAY, THE HANDS FOUND YOUR APRON TO CLING ON,


zindagee ke safar me.n, akele theh hamm,
IN LIFE’S JOURNEY, I WAS ALONE,


mil gaye tum toh dil ko, sahaara milaa,
AS I STUMBLED ON YOU, THE HEART FOUND A SUPPORT,


aa gaye ek naye raaste par qadam,
TOWARDS A NEW PATH MOVED THE STEPS,


jab tumharee nazar kaa, ishaara mila,
WHEN I GOT A GESTURE OF YOUR GLANCE,


zindagee ke safar me.n, akele theh hamm.
IN LIFE’S JOURNEY, I WAS ALONE.


NASIR


No sooner met but they looked;
No sooner looked but they loved;
No sooner loved but they sighed;
No sooner sighed but they asked one another the reason;
No sooner knew the reason but they sought the remedy;
And in these degrees have they made a pair of stairs to marriage...
in As You Like it by Shakespeare
