Feeling Expressed Truely…. April 10, 2007

Posted by Aman.... in Random Stuff.

Ali Haider is among those very few selected and talented singers who have created waves with their music.  I did listen to his song Purani Jeans long back and than he came with, Maahi.All the songs sung by him are so much good that it will be really unfair to say that someone is better than the rest.  But this blog is not about Ali Haider.Its about a song , Tera Naam Liya To which I heard few years back.  Lyrics of this song are so much real to life,so much good that one can always identify her/himself with it.  To tell the truth I stopped listening to this song from some time in the past.  Today just now when I played this song, its lyrics presented an entirely different feeling for me.  I never thought in this way for this song but today I did.  Its a beautiful song and its presenting a feeling, a defeat in love of a lover so much nicely who is remembering his love after some time and thinking about some things done and said by her.  If you have loved someone ever and lost it unfortunately, you will be able to relate to this song somewhere and will understand the meaning much better.  Even if you never loved or never been loved , still the words would tell you a story of separation, loneliness very clearly.  Have a read:
Tera naam liya to , yaad ayi kahani,
Hum saath the dono,Jise bhul saka na!
Tum hi to ho, Tum hi to ho!
Oh dildaar sun lai,mere pyar sun lai!
Yeh pukaar sun lai, oh ik baar sun lai!
Dil ka irada tha, tera bhi wada tha!
Dhundege khushain gam bhi milenege,
Mil k rahenge sada,honge kabhi na juda!
Dono deewane the, sapne suhane the,
Sara jamana ho jaye dushman, honge kabhi na juda,
Mil k rahenge sada!
Gaya chain oo sajna.Roye nain sajna!
Sooni rain oo sajna, Kare wain oo sajna!
Woh bhi jamana tha.Yeh bhi jamana hai!
Shaam sawere rehte the jismein, who dil tod diya!
Tumne bhulya kyon,Ji kyon jalaya kyon!
Saath chale the fir kyon tumne raste mein chhod diya,
Woh dil tod diya!
Tujhe ja oh sajna, ,mile pyar oh sajna,
Mere jaisi na ho, teri haar oh sajna!
Tera naam liya to , yaad ayi kahani,
Hum saath the dono,Jise bhul saka na!
Tum hi to ho, Tum hi to ho!
Oh dildaar sun lai,mere pyar sun lai!
Yeh pukaar sun lai, oh ik baar sun lai!
And the meaning of these lines in English is as follows:
Today I remembered you and a story came in mind!
We were together, I couldn’t forget someone who is you!
Oh my love listen to my heart, listen my cries!
Listen for once, listen my cries!
It was heartful desire, it was your promise too!
We will find happiness together.We will face sadness together!
We will be together forever.  We will never separate!
Both of us loved each other so much.  Both of us saw dreams together!
Even if the whole world will stand against us, we wont separate!
Forever we will be together!
But the peace of the heart is gone now and eyes are crying!
My nights are lonely and empty now who cry with me!
There was one time then and there is this time now,
The very heart where you were in my days and nights,
You broke that very heart only!
Why did you forget me, why did you burn my heart and soul like this?
We started together  holding hands than why you left me in between?
Go my love go!May be you will not be as much unlucky as like me!
May be you wont get defeat like me in love!
Today I remembered you and a story came in mind!
We were together, I couldn’t forget someone who is you!
Oh my love listen to my heart, listen my cries!
Listen for once, listen my cries!
Love is something which many think they know, they understand.  But its one of the most complex human feelings to understand.  Love is not just meet-greet-kiss-part.  Love is not calling someone and telling them so many times that you love him/her.  Love is not giving and accepting precious gifts on Valentine’s Day.  Love is not sweet nick names.  Love is not something which most of us think it is.  Love is so much tough.  Love is not demanding but just giving.  Love is not smiles.  Love is smiles which come even when you have tears and just only tears in your eyes.  Love is not just being with someone on a good place.  Love is not watching movies together.  Love is being with each other at the most difficult times.  In love, there are no distances.  There is nothing called “far away” in love.  If someone is close to your heart, your soul how he/she can be far from you?Love is not blaming the person that he/she wasn’t there any time when he/she was needed.Dont forget if he/she wasn’t there, it goes for the same for you too.  It may be possible that the other person also longed for your shoulder and hug as much at his/her worst times as you longed.  But may be he/she never said that to you.  It may be possible that more than you even, he is willing to be with you but somehow he is not able to do that.Dont say to your love that he was not there when he was needed.  It may not be true!Love is not being with someone for some time and then tell him that he did a crime thinking that you are going to be with him forever, he did a crime weaving some dreams in his eyes for himself and you together.Dont say to your love ever that you never thought to be with him for the end of the life but for some time.  Love is not leaving.  Love is not leaving someone in between the road and get on your own way.  Love is being with each other becoming each other’s support.  Love is not a path full of roses,its an ocean of fire which has one has to swim to get to the other side.  These following lines reveal very nicely what love is.  They are in Hindi.  I shall explain the meaning of them in English in a while.  Have a read:
Maasum mohbbat ka bas itna sa fasana hai!
Kagaz ki haveli hai, baarish ka jamana hai!
Kya shart-e-mohabbat hai,kya shart-e-zamana hai!
Awaaz bhi jakhmi hai aur geet bhi gana hai!
Paar utarne ki umeed nahi hai bilkul!
Kashti bhi purani hai aur toofan ko bhi aana hai!
Samjhe na samjhe wo andaj-e-mohabbat,
ik shakhs ko aankhon se ik shaer sunana hai!
Bholi is ik ada,koi fir ishq ki zid par aya hai!
Fir aag ka dariya hai aur duub ke jana hai!
And their meaning in English is:
This much is the tale of something called Love!
A home is there made of paper and rain is about to come!
There is the irony in Love, voice is dead but still have to sing a song!
There is no hope to swim through, ship is about to sink and storm is knocking doors too!
It doesn’t matter she would understand or not,
But for the sake of love, someone is going to express his love from eyes!
Once again someone is doing the same mistake which others did!
There is this ocean of fire and he has just to swim to get to the other side!
Yes love is this only.Even when you have nothing but tears with you, even when you have nothing but pain in your heart and that too not given by someone else but by that person whom you have loved from your heart, you still love her.  Yes that is love that you never ask, never blame the other person but just love her for all what she has, for all what she is.  But still there is something which needs to be understood.  A glass broken cant be made again.  A star broken has to become ash only.  A rose plucked has to die only and in the same way, a heart which is broken cant be the same again.  Never hurt some one who has loved you.  Never hurt and made that person cry by mistake too who loves you coz may be for the same thing done by someone else, it wont hurt that much but if it will happen from you,it will hurt the most.  Never tell your love that he was a selfish fellow who loved you for his selfishness or for his benefit.  It is also possible that he is the only one who has not got anything except  just tears and a broken heart.  Every sin can be forgiven, every crime can be forgotten.  Any wound on the body can be healed.  But there are some wounds which once given on the heart, they never leave that person and just kill him day by day, breath by breath.Dont give some one those wounds which will hurt him like death every single day.  Love is not this.  Love is taking away all the pains of that person, doing what is called impossible by others for your love and still look for something which is yet to be done!If you have not done anything for your love, if you have not given him smiles, never let anything happen from your side which will give him pain too.
But just as there are some who have given their lives for one smile of their loved ones, there are some who have let their love killed in front of their eyes too.Mirza-Sahiban is a classic example of  this.Sahiban knew that her brothers will be killed by Mirza’s arrows so she broke his bow.  Among all the love stories happened in Punjab, its just only when gal purposely did that to save her own family despite knowing that it will make her love die.  But still she did that.  And as it was bound to happen, Mirza was left alone in front of her brothers who killed him.Mirza didn’t bring his brothers coz he trusted his love who only become the reason for his death.Though with the truth told to her by Mirza when he was dieing, Sahiban killed herself too but that didn’t change the truth,a bitter truth that just coz of her, Mirza got killed.  Sometimes,some things are not so much simple.  It is said, killing someone is not so much big crime coz the pain you will give,it will be for once only but breaking a heart is coz you make that person die every day.  Wounds of love are not meant to be healed by anything remember this.
But as they say, no one expects to be getting hurt.  No one expects the worst for him when he falls in love.  We all just trust our loved ones and on their love.  We just believe that they will take care of us and will value our love and our emotions.  Yes some do too.  There are so many who do so much for their loved ones.  I met so many who have done things which can be called examples too if one has to tell what is real love and what is real dedication.  But as like there is always another side of the coin.  Some are not so lucky.  These lines are from a lover who is telling his story and revealing what he thought and actually what he got.  Have a read:
Dil tutega is kadar mera,
Iss baat ki mujhe khabar na thi!
Jamane bhar mein pyar bhi usi se hua,
Jise pyar ki mere kadar na thi!
And their meaning in English is:
I never dreamed that I shall get hurt this much!
I never thought I shall get my heart broken!
Out of this whole world,I loved just that one,
Who never knew,understood the value of my love!
I shall conclude by saying this only that love is not a matter of profit and lose.  If you are looking for something to come as a benefit for you in love, if you are looking for some profit from love than may be you are not looking at the right thing.  Love is not getting benefits.  Love is not getting at all.  Love is losing something every day of yours for someone whom you love and yet to be happy coz this only will make you complete.  Love is not letting your love killed for the sake of your own people, love is getting yourself slotted before even a scratch would come to your love.  Love is not thinking what you will lose and what you will get.  These things are good for deals not for a relation called Love.  If by being with your love makes you feel embarrassed, if you think that standing beside your love would make you feel uncomfortable than its better you don’t think that you are in love.  Love demands pain to be born and smiles to be given not the vice-versa.
