Tu hai yaha

Sunday morning, as the temperature soars to 40 degrees celsius, I realise its the season when the days seem to start early and go on forever. I search for playlists online to fill the room with melody.

I chance upon the name ‘Ankur Tiwari’, somewhere buried in the credits for the songs he has created for the movie Gully Boy. Reading about his work, his journey, I look up the lyrics of this song, Jeene Main Aaye Mazaa.

It reminded me of all those I am grateful for having in my life and because of whom “jeene mein aaye mazaa”.

Transliteration  

Tarazu ke bas do thaal hain
Ek ore hum dooje mein khwaab hain
Zindagi yeh pareshaan hai
Ganimat hai tu hai yahan
Jeene mein aaye maza

(The weighing scale with its 2 pans
On one is us, on the other our dreams
This life filled with worries
Gratefully you are here
Living life is a relish now)

Khareeda nahi jaata khwaab hai
Kiraya bhi aisa lajawab hai
Zindagi yeh pareshaan hai
Ganimat hai tu hai yahan
Jeene mein aaye maza

(Dreams that cannot be bought
Even the rent on them too high
This life filled with worries
Gratefully you are here
Living life is a Relish now)

Tu jo mila jaaga khwaab hai
Khoyi huyi meri kitaab hai
Muskaya sa audaab hai
Jeene mein aaye maza

(Finding you, my dreams have awakened
Lost I have my book
Cheerful is the world around me
Living life is a Relish now)

Sustaye mausam aabaad hain
Hawaon ke rukh humse naaraaz hain
Zindagi yeh pareshaan hai
Ganimat hai tu hai yahan
Jeene mein aaye maza

(Tired seasons are lively again
Changing winds are annoyed with me
This life filled with worries
Gratefully you are here
Living life is a Relish now)

Tu jo mila chhida saaz hai
Khamoshi ko mili aawaaz hai
Behti hawa sa ehsaas hai
Jeene mein aaye maza

(Meeting you has stroked the instruments
Silence now has a voice
Aware now of the flowing winds
Living life is a Relish now)

Bigda hua hisaab hai
Thoda nafa thoda nuksaan hai
Zindagi yeh pareshaan hai
Ganimat hai tu hai yahan
Jeene mein aaye maza

(Messed up calculations
Little profit little loss
This life filled with worries
Gratefully you are here
Living life is a Relish now)
