"Ek Lau Is Tarah"

Gardishon mein rehti...Behti guzarti
Zindagiyaan hain kitni
In mein se ek hai...Teri meri agni
Koi ek jaisi apni
Par khuda khair kar...Aisa anjaam kisi rooh ko
Na de kabhi yahan

Ghuncha muskurata ek...Waqt se pehle

Kyun chod chala...Tera ye jahan

Ek lau is tarah kyun bujhi mere maula

Ek lau zindagi ki maula


Dhoop ke ujaale se...Aus ke pyaale se
Khushiyaan mile humko

Zyada maanga hai kahaan...Sarhadein na ho jahan
Duniya mile humko
Par khuda khair kar...Uske armaan mein kyun

Bewajah ho koi qurbaan
Ghuncha muskurata ek...Waqt se pehle
Kyun chod chala...Tera ye jahan
Ek lau is tarah kyun bujhi mere maula
Ek lau zindagi ki maula

Struggling through dark clouds...flowing,passing by
So many lives exist
Your life and my life...is one flame amongst these
O God...have mercy...may no soul receive such an ending here
Why a blooming bud is leaving your world before its full blossom
Why was a flare extinguished like this, my Lord
A flare of life, my Lord
Light of sunshine...beauty of the morning dew
Give us joy unparalleled
We don't ask for a lot...just a world free of divisions and hatred
Is it too much
O God...have mercy...why should anyone be sacrificed for this wish
Why a blooming bud is leaving your world before its full blossom
Why was a flare extinguished like this, my Lord
A flare of life, my Lord

This is in tribute to all those souls who departed...may their souls rest in everlasting peace. This was not how they should have departed but alas...it's done.
Dedicated to all those families who have lost a loved one...who have been scarred for life...may you have strength to face this loss and may God bequeath you with peace of mind.

Their loss is irreparable.
It's hard to believe but you know what I broke down when this song was being played on NDTV India with martyrs name in the foreground.
Period.

humne nai socha tha kabhi.
aise juda honge hamare sathi.
ab jab woh nai hai sath mein.
unki jagah ko bhar diya goliyo ki awaz ne.

this is my first time on ur blog... and i must say, the poem was amazing!!

I'm not one who believes in the lord, the almighty, a supernatural power or anything... but i still could relate to the words in this vague sorta way

btw did you translate it from hindi to english? because i think the charm was lost in the english version
