AAO MILKE GAAYEN AISA GAANA

aa'o milke gaa'e.n aisa gaana suriila aur suhaana Come, joining together, we'll sing a song both melodious and beautiful,
jis me.n sirf pyaar kii miTHaas ho in which may there be only the sweetness of love.
hamne to hai siikha gungunaana I've learned how to hum,
hamesha muskaraana jabse tum hamaare dil ke paas ho how to continuously smile, since you've become dear to my heart.
tum aur ham gaa'e.n sargam You and I shall sing a melody,
sargam zi.ndagii kii har khushii kii aur pyaar kii a melody of life and of every happiness and of love.

subah ke ujale hai.n vo pahale There are the first rays of morning,
shaam ka a.ndhera reshmii hai and the evening's darkness is made of silk;
muskaraatii aa.nkho.n se jo dekho if you look through smiling eyes,
duniya me.n kahaa.n koii kamii hai where is there anything lacking in this world?
jo halka ho yeh man jo ham rahe.n magn If the heart is light, and we remain in good cheer,
har ek rut lagegii hamko rut baahar kii then each and every season will seem to us like springtime.

chupke se hai yeh mujhko bataaya softly told me this:
khushnasiib voh hai is jahaan me.n he is blessed in this world,
jisne duusro.n ka pyaar paaya who has received the love of others.
lagtii hai voh galii har ek voh kalii The flower bud takes to the lane;
aisii galii kab hai zaruurat singaar kii so when does the lane ever need adornment?

DIALOGUES

ghum jo paaya hai to siine se lagaa le isko What your wandering has found, draw it to your breast;
dil me.n yeh aag chupaake tujhe jiina hoga you will have to live hiding this fire.
dekh amrit jo pilaana hai tujhe auro.n ko Behold the ambrosia which you must feed to others;
tere hisse me.n hai jo zahar voh piina hoga it is a part of you. But what you will be forced to drink is poison.
