Chalo Ek Baar Phir Se…

I love this song from my core…. I flowed with it, stirred and became so emotional.. just enjoy the feeling, the sadness, the love and passion.. Hats off to Sahir Ludhaianvi…

chalo ek baar phir se ajnabii ban jaayeN ham donoN

na maiN tum se ko’ii ummiid rakhuuN dil navaazii kii
na tum merii taraf dekho Ghalat andaaz nazroN se
na mere dil kii dhaRkan laRkhaRaaye merii baatoN meN
na zaahir ho tumhaarii kash-ma-kash kaa raaz nazroN se

Come, let us be strangers again, you and I.

I shall no longer hope for any favours from you
Nor shall you look upon me with eyes askance.
And my words shall tremble no more with my heartbeat
Nor the secret of your struggle be betrayed in a glance.

chalo ek baar phir se ajnabii ban jaayeN ham donoN

tumheN bhii ko’ii uljhan roktii hai pesh-kadmii se
mujhe bhii log kahte haiN ke ye jalve paraaye haiN
mere ham-raah bhii rusavaaiyaaN haiN mere maazii kii
tumhaare saath bhii guzrii hu’ii raatoN ke saaye haiN

Come, let us be strangers again, you and I.

You too have hesitated to give yourself completely
I too wear disguises, or so I am told
The disgraces of my past are my constant companions
And you too are possessed by the nights of old.

ta’arruf rog ho jaaye to us ko bhuulnaa behtar
ta’alluq bojh ban jaaye to us ko toRnaa achchaa
vo afsaanaa jise ajnaam tak laanaa na ho mumkin
use ek Khuubsuurat moR dekar chhoRnaa achchaa

chalo ek baar phir se ajnabii ban jaayeN ham donoN

When involvement becomes illness it is best forgotten
When a relationship oppresses it is best to break it
When the adventure you are embarked on cannot be completed
One must find a beautiful way out, and take it.

Come, let us be strangers again, you and I.
