the river song...



***


...ऐ साहील, तुझे क्या जानू मैं



पाना तुझे बस मेरी चाहः
ईसी चाहः का गुलाम, मैं अंजान,
एक कश्ती पर निकल पड़ा ।


मैं
क्या जानू सफर करना माही में ।
ऊम्र बीती मेरी इस कश्ती में, लहरों पर बहते हुऐ
तुझसे कोसो दूर



सिर्फ़ ख़यालो में देखा, तुझे क्या जानू मैं,
ब़स मैं जानू तुझ बिन जिना ।


साहिल तुझे क्या जानू मैं ...

...O' river bank, what do i know of thee.

all i know is of my desire to reach thee.
the slave of this desire, in my ignorance

i took off in a little boat.

what do i know of journeying in the river.
i have spent a lifetime in this boat, riding along the waves

a million miles away from you.

having only seen you in my dreams, i know nothing of thee

all i know is to live without you.

O' river bank, what do i know of thee...



(...English translation of the same)
