Lyrics:  Bharat Vyas
Music:  Sardar Malik

RAFI’S RARE GEM:  ek jhalak dikhaa gayee…
Roman Transliteration/English Translation of the Hindi-Urdu Lyrics (First time on the Internet):

ek jhalak dikhaa gayee,
SHOWING ME A GLIMPSE,

bijliyaa.N giraa gayee,
UNLEASHING THE LIGHTNINGS,

pyaar ban ke zindagee me.N
BECOMING THE LOVE OF LIFE,

kaun muskuraa gayee,
HAVING GONE AWAY WITH A SMILE;  WHO’S SHE?

kaun muskuraa gayee….
HAVING GONE AWAY WITH A SMILE;  WHO’S SHE?

ek roop kee kiran,
A BEAUTEOUS RAY,

chupke chupke chhoo ke tan,
SILENTLY TOUCHING THE BODY,

teekhe teekhe nainwaa faqeer kaa jalaa gayee
SHARP EYES, BURNING THE FAQIR, 

kaun muskuraa gayee…
HAVING GONE AWAY WITH A SMILE;  WHO’S SHE?

kaisee anokhee mulaaqaat theeh,
‘TWAS A STRANGE RENDEVOUS!

kaisee anokhee mulaaqaat theeh,
‘TWAS A STRANGE RENDEVOUS!

aa.NkhoN me.N tere koyee baat theeh,
SOMETHING IN YOUR EYES

bole binaa bhed samjhaa gayee,
EXPLAINED THE SECRET WITHOUT A WORD!

aisee adaa me.N karaamaat theeh,
SUCH A GESTURE WAS A MIRACLE!

kyaa nazar se keh gaye,
WHAT SHE SPOKE THROUGH HER EYES

hamm kha.De hee reh gaye,
JUST MADE ME STAND STILL!

ek hee palak me.N jaadoo kee jhalak dikhaa gayee
ONLY IN A MOMENT SHE GAVE ME AN ENCHANTING GLIMPSE!

kaun muskuraa gayee,
HAVING GONE AWAY WITH A SMILE;  WHO’S SHE?

ek jhalak dikhaa gayee,
SHOWING ME A GLIMPSE,

bijliyaa.N giraa gayee,
UNLEASHING THE LIGHTNINGS,

pyaar ban ke zindagee me.N
BECOMING THE LOVE OF LIFE,

kaun muskuraa gayee
HAVING GONE AWAY WITH A SMILE;  WHO’S SHE?

kaun muskuraa gayee….
HAVING GONE AWAY WITH A SMILE;  WHO’S SHE?


mukh.De pe theeh chaandnee kee chhaTaa,
HER FACE WITH THE MOONBEAM LIT,

mukh.De pe theeh chaandnee kee chaTaa,
HER FACE WITH THE MOONBEAM LIT,

baalo.N me.N theeh baadlo.N kee ghaTaa,
HER HAIR – DARK DENSE CLOUDS!

chandaa hazaaro.N chamakne lage,
THOUSANDS MOONS BEGAN TO SHINE

jab laaj ka, haay, ghoongaT haTaa,
WHEN THE VEIL OF COYNESS PARTED, OH!

aa.Nkh theeh jhukee jhukee,
THE EYES WERE LOWERED,

saa.Ns theeh rukee rukee,
THE BREATH HELD IN!

voh haseen see chhabee, kalpanaa pe chhaah gayee
THAT GORGEOUS LUSTRE OVERWHELMED MY FANCY!

kaun muskuraa gayee,
HAVING GONE AWAY WITH A SMILE;  WHO’S SHE?

ek jhalak dikhaa gayee,
SHOWING ME A GLIMPSE,

bijliyaa.N giraa gayee,
UNLEASHING THE LIGHTNINGS,

pyaar ban ke zindagee me.N
BECOMING THE LOVE OF LIFE,

kaun muskuraa gayee
HAVING GONE AWAY WITH A SMILE;  WHO’S SHE?

kaun muskuraa gayee.
HAVING GONE AWAY WITH A SMILE;  WHO’S SHE?
