DHADAK DHADAK

yeh world hai na world Oh, this world...
is me.n do tarah ke log hote hai.n there are two types of people in it.
ek jo saarii zi.ndagii ek hii kaam karte rahate One who spends his whole life doing the same old job;
aur duusre jo ek hii zi.ndagii me.n saare kaam kar dete the other who crams all the world's jobs into a single life.
yeh mai.n nahii.n ye vo dono.n kahate the It was those two who said this, not me.
aur kahate kahate karte the And while they said it, they did things
aur aisa karte jaise na kisiine kiya aur shaayad na kar paaya the like of which no one has ever done, nor perhaps could manage to.
chhoTe chhoTe shaharo.n se khaalii bor dopaharo.n se From small towns, empty dawns and afternoons,
ham to jhola uTHaake chale we picked up our bags and set off.
baarish kam kam lagtii hai The rain has let up;
nadiyaa maddham lagtii hai ham sama.ndar ke a.ndar chale.n the river is calm; let's head into the ocean!
chhoTe chhoTe shaharo.n se khaalii bor dopaharo.n se From small towns, empty dawns and afternoons,
ham to jhola uTHaake chale we picked up our bags and set off.
baarish kam kam lagtii hai The rain has let up;
nadiyaa maddham lagtii hai ham sama.ndar ke a.ndar chale.n the river is calm; let's go into the ocean!
ham chale ham chale oy raamchandare... Oh, we set off, we set off, by the grace of Ramchand.
dhaRak dhaRak dhaRak dhaRak dhu'aa.n uRaa'e re The train clatters; the smoke rises.
dhaRak dhaRak dhaRak dhaRak siitii bajaa'e re The train clatters; the whistle blows.
dhaRak dhaRak dhaRak dhaRak dhu'aa.n uRaa'e re The train clatters; the smoke rises.
dhaRak dhaRak dhaRak dhaRak mujhe bulaa'e re The train clatters; it calls to me.
o zaraa rastaa to do thoRa sa baadal chakhna hai Let me pass; I've got to have a taste of the clouds!
baRa baRa koyal se naam falak pe likhna hai I've got to write my name on the sky with a hunk of coal.
chaand se hokar saRak jaatii hai There's a road that goes by the moon;
usii pe aage jaake apna makaan hoga head straight up it, and there will be my house.
chaand se hokar sarak jaatii hai There's a road that goes by the moon;
usii pe aake jaake apna makaan hoga head straight up it, and there will be my house.
ham chale ham chale oy raamchandare... Oh, we set off, we set off, by the grace of Ramchand.
dhaRak dhaRak dhaRak dhaRak dhu'aa.n uRaa'e re The train clatters; the smoke rises.

aapa chale sar pe liye a.mbar ke THa.nDHii parchaaiyaan Sister walks with the cool shadows of the sky on her head.
ham hii zamiin ham aasmaan kasmaano.n khaae.n baakii jahaa.n We are the world, we are the sky; let the rest of the world swear as it likes.
chaa.nd ka tiika mathe lagaake With the moon affixed to your forehead as a teeka,
raat din taaro.n me.n jiina biina "easy" nahii.n it's not easy living day and night among the stars.

CHUP CHUPKE

dekhna mere sar se aasmaan uR gaya hai... Look! The skies have flown up away from my head.
dekhna aasmaan ke siine khul gaye hai zamiin se... Look! The sky has unfurled from the earth.
chup chupke chup chupke chorii se chorii Silently, in secret...
chup chupke chup chupke secretly...
chup chupke chup chupke chorii se chorii Silently, secretly,
chup chupke chup chupke in stealth,
chup chupke chup chupke chorii se chorii Silently, secretly,
chup chupke chup chupke in stealth,
dekhna kya hu'aa hai look what happened!
yeh zamiin bah rahii hai The earth is flowing.
dekhna paaniyo.n me.n zamiin ghul rahii hai.n kahii.n se Look! Somewhere, the earth is dissolving into the waters.
dekhna aasmaan ke siine khul gaye hai zamiin se Look! The sky has unfurled from the earth.
chup chupke chup chupke chorii se chorii Silently, in secret...
chup chupke chup chupke secretly...
chup chupke chup chupke chorii se chorii Silently, secretly,
chup chupke chup chupke secretly, silently,
hosh me.n mai.n nahii.n yeh gashii bhii nahii.n I'm not in my wits, but I'm not unconscious either.
is sadii me.n kabhii yeh hu'aa bhii nahii.n This hasn't happened before in this century!
jism ghulne lagaa ruuh galne lagii My body started to melt; my spirit began to dissolve.
paa.nv rukne lagii raah chalne lagii My feet faltered as the road started to move.
aasmaan baadalo.n par karvaTe.n le rahaa hai The sky is turning over on the clouds.
dekhna aasmaan hii barasne lage na zamiin pe Look! It's as if the sky itself is about to rain down on the earth.
yeh zamiin paaniyo.n me.n Dubkiyaa.n le rahii hai The earth is immersing itself in the waters.
dekhna uTHke pairo.n pe chalne lagii na kahii.n pe Look! It's as if it rose up and headed off on its feet.
chup chupke chup chupke chorii se chorii Silently, in secret...
chup chupke chup chupke secretly...
chup chupke chup chupke chorii se chorii Silently, secretly,
chup chupke chup chupke secretly...
tum kaho to ruke.n tum kaho to chale.n I'll stop if you tell me to; I'll go if you tell me to;
yeh junuun hai agar to junuun soch le if this is obsession, then so be it.
tum kaho to ruke.n tum kaho to chale.n I'll stop if you tell me to; I'll go if you tell me to;
mujhko pahachaantii hai.n kahaa.n ma.nzile.n I've got no special destination, anyway.
dekhna mere sar se aasmaan uR gaya hai... Look! The skies have flown up away from my head.
dekhna aasmaan ke siine khul gaye hai zamiin se... Look! The sky has unfurled from the earth.
dekhna kya hu'aa hai Look what happened!
yeh zamiin bah rahii hai The earth is flowing.
dekhna paaniyo.n me.n zamiin ghul rahii hai.n kahii.n se Look! Somewhere, the earth is dissolving into the waters.
