Philosophical/Didactic Song of Rafi: Aaj iss darja pilaa doh...

Roman Transliteration/
English Translation of the original lyrics:


Aaj iss darjaa pilaa doh,
GET ME DRUNK TO SUCH AN EXTENT TODAY


ke na kuchh yaad rahe,
THAT I MAY NOT REMEMBER A THING,


aaj iss darjaa pilaa doh,
GET ME DRUNK TO SUCH AN EXTENT TODAY


ke na kuchh yaad rahe,
THAT I MAY NOT REMEMBER A THING...


be-Khudee itnee ba.Dhaa doh,
INCREASE THE RAPTURE TO SUCH AN EXTENT


ke na kuchh yaad rahe,
THAT I MAY NOT REMEMBER A THING,


aaj iss darjaa pilaa doh,
GET ME DRUNK TO SUCH AN EXTENT TODAY


ke na kuchh yaad rahe...
THAT I MAY NOT REMEMBER A THING...


dosti  kyaa hai, wafaa kyaa hai, mohabbat kyaa hai,
WHAT’S FRIENDSHIP, WHAT’S CONSTANCY, WHAT’S LOVE,


dil ka kyaa mol hai, ehsaas kee qeemat kyaa hai,
WHAT’S THE VALUE OF THE HEART, WHAT’S THE PRICE OF SENSIBILITY,


hamne sab jaan liyaa hai, ke haqeeqat kyaa hai,
I’VE COME TO KNOW IT ALL AS TO WHAT THE FACT  IS,


aaj bas itnee, dua doh,
JUST BLESS ME TO SUCH AN EXTENT TODAY


ke na kuchh yaad rahe,
THAT I MAY NOT REMEMBER A THING!


aaj iss darjaa pilaa doh,
GET ME DRUNK TO SUCH AN EXTENT TODAY


ke na kuchh yaad rahe…
THAT I MAY NOT REMEMBER A THING...


muflisee dekhee, ameeree kee adaa dekh chuke,
SEEN INDIGENCE;  THE CHARMS OF OPULENCE WE’VE SEEN,


gham kaa maahaul,  mussarrat kee fizaa dekh chuke,
THE SORROW’S ENVIRONMENT, THE AMBIENCE OF JOLLITY WE’VE SEEN,


kaise phirtee hai zamaane, kee hawaa dekh chuke,
HOW THE CONTRARY WIND OF THE WORLD BLOWS, WE’VE SEEEN,


shammaa yaado.n kee, bujhaa doh,
EXTINGUISH THE LAMP OF THE MEMORIES


ke na kuchh yaad rahe,
THAT I MAY NOT REMEMBER A THING!


aaj iss darjaa pilaa doh,
GET ME DRUNK TO SUCH AN EXTENT TODAY


ke na kuchh yaad rahe…
THAT I MAY NOT REMEMBER A THING...


ishq be-chayn Khayaalo.n, ke siwaa kuchh bhee nahee.n,
PASSIONATE LOVE IS NOTHING BUT RESTLESS THOUGHTS,


husn be-rooh, ujaalo.n ke siwaa kuchh bhee nahee.n,
BEAUTY IS NOTHING BUT A SOULLESS GLITTER,


zindagee cha.nd sawaalo.n, ke siwaa kuchh bhee nahee.n,
BEYOND A FEW QUESTIONS, LIFE IS NOTHING,


har sawaal aise, miTaa doh,
ERASE EVERY QUESTION IN SUCH A WAY


ke na kuchh yaad rahe,
THAT I MAY NOT REMEMBER A THING!


aaj iss darjaa pilaa doh,
GET ME DRUNK TO SUCH AN EXTENT


ke na kuchh yaad rahe,
THAT I MAY NOT REMEMBER ANYTHING...


Mit na paayegaa, jahaa.n se kabhee nafrat ka rivaaj,
THE PREVALENCE OF HATRED WILL NEVER BE EEFACED  FROM THE EARTH,


Ho na paayegaa, kabhee rooh ke, zaKhmo.n kaa ilaaj,
NOR WILL THE TREATMENT FOR SOUL’S WOUND BE EVER ACCOMPLISHED,


saltanat zulm Khuda vahm, museebat hai samaaj,
SULTANATE IS TYRANNY, GOD IS IMAGINATION, SOCIETY IS AN AFFLICTION,


saltanat zulm Khuda vahm, museebat hai samaaj,
SULTANATE IS TYRANNY, GOD IS IMAGINATION, SOCIETY IS AN AFFLICTION,


zehan ko aise, sulaa doh,
PUT THE MIND TO SLEEP IN SUCH A WAY


ke na kuchh yaad rahe...
THAT I MAY NOT REMEMBER A THING!


aaj iss darjaa pilaa doh,
GET ME DRUNK TO SUCH AN EXTENT


ke na kuchh yaad rahe,
THAT I MAY NOT REMEMBER A THING,


be-Khudee itnee ba.Dhaa doh,
INCREASE THE RAPTURE TO SUCH AN EXTENT


ke na kuchh yaad rahe,
THAT I MAY NOT REMEMBER A THING,


aaj iss darjaa pilaa doh,
GET ME DRUNK TO SUCH AN EXTENT


ke na kuchh yaad rahe.
THAT I MAY NOT REMEMBER A THING!
