ISHQ KAMINA (from the film SHAKTI)

Thanks to Achyut!

ishq... Love...
bedardii ishq nigoRa sab ka dil isne toRa Heartless, wretched love; it's broken everyone's heart.
har aashiq ishq se haara hamko bhii ishq ne maara Each lover was defeated by love; I've been beaten by it too.
aa'e chain kahii.n na kar de mushkil jiina Peace becomes a stranger, it makes living nearly impossible;
ishq kamiina... love's a bitch... [note: kamina, a curse word, literally means 'wretch' or 'wretched,' but the blandness of the English word makes this colloquialism more fitting.]
karde mushkil jiina ishq kamiina It makes life near impossible; love's a bitch.
taRapta hai raat bhar deta hai dard-e-jigar It tortures you the whole night through; your heart aches.
koii bhii bach paa'e na Nobody's spared by it.
qaatil hai iskii nazar Its influence is deadly.
taRpaa'e kabhii tarsaa'e kabhii na baat koii maane... It makes you agitated, teases and torments you; it heeds no one...
chhoRe kisko kabhii na It never lets anyone go,
na karde mushkil jiina it makes life impossible.
ishq kamiina... Love's a bitch....
karde mushkil jiina It makes life near impossible...
ishq kamiina... Love's a bitch...
na zor ispe chale chale is me.n Force doesn't work on it; in it
hu'e faasle badnaamiyaa.n bas mili mili distance only wins you a bad name.
laakho.n ke ghar bhii jale.n Countless homes shall burn (for it).
luT jaa'e koii miT jaa'e koii barbaad kare sabko... Some will be looted; some will be obliterated; it will destroy all of them.
isne sab kuchh chhiina It's snatched away everything.
karde mushkill jiina ishq kamiina It makes living near impossible; love's a bitch.

 

BREATHLESS (artist: SHANKAR MAHADEVAN)

koii jo mila to mujhe aisa lagta tha When I met someone, it seemed to me that
jaise merii sarii duniya me.n giito.n kii rut aur ra.ngo.n kii barkha a season of songs, a rain shower of colors pervaded my whole world;
khusbuu kii aa.ndhii mahakii hu'ii sii ab saari fizaa'e.n the whole atmosphere now scented by a whirlwind of fragrance,
bahakii hu'ii sii ab saarii havaa'e.n all the breezes now staggering drunkenly.
koii hu'ii sii ab saarii dishaa'e.n and someone in every direction, every element.
badalii hu'ii sii ab saarii adaa'e.n All the world's ways were altered.
jaagii uma.nge.n dhaRak raha hai terii saa.nso.n me.n tuu Elation waking, throbbing in your breath;
ka'ii hoTHo.n pe nagme hai.n love songs on your lips;
aa.nkho.n me.n sapne hai.n dreams in your eyes;
sapno.n me.n biite hu'e saare vo lamhe in your dreams all those past moments
jab koii aaya tha nazaro.n pahachaaya tha when someone came, and I recognized her (as my own).
dil me.n samaaya tha kaise mai.n bataa'uu.m tumhe.n This someone settled into my heart; how can I explain to you
kaise use paaya tha how I found her?
pyaare se chehare pe biiki biiki jo zulfe.n The locks of hair scattered over her lovely face;
to aisa lagta tha jaise ghumaR ke piichhe it seemed like behind that cloud-like mass
ek os me.n ghula hu'aa phuul khila hai suffused with dewdrops, a flower bloomed.
jaise baadal me.n ek chaa.nd chupa hai Like a moon hidden in a cloud,
aur chaa.ndna aa rahaa hai and the moonlight emerging
jaise raat kii parde me.n ek savera hai roshan roshan like luminscent dawn from the shade of night:
aa.nkho.n me.n sapno.n ka saagar an ocean of dreams in her eyes,
jis ne prem sitaaro.n kii chaadar jaise chhalak rahii hai laharo.n laharo.n love overflowing in waves, like a sheet of stars,
baat kar rahii jaise moti barse speaking words like showers of pearls,
jaise kahii.n chaa.nd kii paayal guu.nje like somewhere the moon's anklets jingle,
jaise kahii.n shiishe ke jaam kii re aur chham Like a tinkling glass goblet.
se tuutii jaise koii chipke sitaar bajaa'e or the playing of sitaar and flute,
jaise koii chaa.ndanii raat me.n gaa'e like singing in a moonlit night,
jaise koii haule se raaz sunaa'e like the soft speaking of a secret.
kaisii miiTHii baate.n thii.n vo What words they were,
kaisii mulaaqaate.n thii.n vo what meetings they were!
jab mai.n ne na jaana tha nazaro.n se kaise bigaRte hai.n dil When I didn't know how a heart could be destroyed by someone's gaze,
aur aarzuu paana hai kaisii man.zil and what sort of goal it is to obtain one's desire,
aur kaisii utarta hai chaa.nd zamiin par and how a moon can come down to earth,
kaisii kabhii lagta hai swarg kii andherii hai to bastii yahii.n par and how, sometimes, it can seem that the darkness of heaven settles right here.
usne bataaya mujhe aur samjhaaya mujhe She told me, she explained to me:
ham jo mile hai.n hame.n aise hii milna tha we who meet, were destined to meet like this;
ham jo khile hai.n hame.n aise hii khilna tha we who bloom, were destined to bloom like this;
janmo.n ke ba.ndhan janmo.n ke rishte hai.n the bonds of many births, the relationships of many births:
jo bhii hamdam na to ham yuu.nhii milte hai.n we're soulmates, so we meet like this.
kaano.n me.n mere jaise shahad se ghule lage This flowed into my ears like honey;
khwaabo.n ke marm jaise aa.nkho.n me.n dhule lage it washed into my eyes like the meaning of my dreams.
khwaabo.n kii duniya bhii kitnii hasiin aur kaisii ra.ngiin thii How beautiful was that world of dreams, how splendid
khwaabo.n kii duniya jo kahane ko thii par kahii.n bhii nahii.n thii what what the world of dreams had to say! But in reality, it didn't exist.
khwaab jo biite merii aa.nkhe.n jo khulii mere hosh jo aa'e mujhe The dreams passed, my eyes opened, my wits returned;
mai.n ne dekha mai.n ne jaana voh to kabhii aaya tha I saw, I knew, the one who'd sometimes come.
nazaro.n pahachaaya tha dil me.n samaaya tha I recognized her, I fixed her in my heart.
tha bhii chuka aur dil me.n rahe ab tanha tanha and now my heart shall stay lonely, lonely.
na to koii armaan hai na koii tamanna hai I know neither desire nor longing;
ab na koii sapna hai no longer have I any dreams.
ab jo mere din aur ab jo merii raate.n Now, my days, my nights,
un me.n sirf aarzuu hai un me.n sirf dard kii ra.nj kii baate.n in them is only pleading and in them is only talk of the pain of grief
aur fariyaade.n hai.n and cries for help.
mere ab koii nahii.n Now I have nothing;
mai.n huu.n aur koii hoii pyaar kii yaade.n hai... just myself and the memories of love...

Thanks to Nisha!

CHORUS:
jaatii huu.n mai.n I'm going.

mai.n pyaar karne lagii huu.n I've started to fall in love!
khud se itna Darogii If you fear yourself so,
tum pyaar kaise karogii however will you love?
jaaduu tere jism ka terii or khii.nche mujhe The magic of your body draws me toward you;
qaabuu na khud pe rahe jab jab mai.n dekhuu.n tujhe when I look at you, I lose control of myself.
qadam bahak jaa'e.nge yeh kyo.n tum ne socha Why'd you think we'd lose our balance?
kya merii chaahat pe tumko nahii.n bharosa Don't you have faith in my love?
tum par mujhko yaqiin hai I'm sure of you;

jaanleva jaanleva jaanleva Deadly, deadly, deadly:
terii har adaa sitam hai jaanleva your every way is a deadly atrocity.
tera ishq to bharam hai jaanleva Your love is a deadly delusion;

terii har adaa sitam hai jaanleva your every way is a deadly atrocity.

to baat ban jaa'e... it would prosper...

 

 PEHLI BAAR DIL (from the film HUM HO GAYE AAPKE)

pahalii baar dil yuu.n beqaraar hu'aa hai... For the first time, my heart has grown restless...
aisa lag rahaa hai jaise pyaar hu'aa hai It seems as though I've fallen in love,
jaise pyaar hu'aa hai as though I've fallen in love.
ab to baRa mushkil i.ntazaar hu'aa hai... Now waiting has become so difficult...
aisa lag rahaa hai jaise pyaar hu'aa hai it seems as though I've fallen in love,
jaise pyaar hu'aa hai like I've fallen in love.
dil pe mere tera ikhtiyaar hu'aa hai... You've gained authority over my heart...
aisa lag rahaa hai jaise pyaar hu'aa hai It seems as though I've fallen in love,
jaise pyaar hu'aa hai as though I've fallen in love.
nii.nd nahii.n aatii hai saari raat mujhko Sleep doesn't come to me the whole night through.
har ghaRi sataatii hai terii baat mujhko Each moment, your words torment me.
haal kya hai mera kaise mai.n bataa'uu.n How can I tell you of my state?
duur jaake tere paas chalii aa'uu.n... Having pulled away, I approach you.
yeh kya mere dil ko mere yaar hu'aa hai... Darling, what has happened to my heart?
aisa lag rahaa hai jaise pyaar hu'aa hai It seems as though I've fallen in love,
jaise pyaar hu'aa hai as though I've fallen in love.
boltii nazar kii bekhudii ne luuTa The heady intoxication of your eloquent eyes has robbed me;
yaar mujhko terii saadagii ne luuTa darling, your simple innocence has plundered me.
dard lag rahaa hai mujhko ab suhaana A beautiful pain afflicts me now;
aaj mai.n ne jaana kya hai dil ka lagaana... today I learned what it is to fall in love.
mujhko dhaRkano.n pe etbaar hu'aa hai... I've placed my faith in heartbeats...
aisa lag rahaa hai jaise pyaar hu'aa hai It seems as though I've fallen in love,
jaise pyaar hu'aa hai as though I've fallen in love.
pahalii baar dil yuu.n beqaraar hu'aa hai For the first time, my heart has grown restless.
ab to baRa mushkil i.ntazaar hu'aa hai Now waiting has become so difficult...
haa.n aisa lag rahaa hai jaise pyaar hu'aa hai Yes, it seems as though I've fallen in love,
jaise pyaar hu'aa hai like I've fallen in love.
aisa lag rahaa hai jaise pyaar hu'aa hai It seems as though I've fallen in love,
jaise pyaar hu'aa hai as though I've fallen in love.
