5) CHINGARI KOI BHADKE: AMAR PREM 1972
Chingari koii bharke to saavan use bujhaa'e
If a spark flares up, then the rains might extinguish it
saawan jo agan lagaa'e use kaun bujhaa'e
But if the rains light a fire, who can put it out?
Patjhar jo baag ujaare voh baag bahaar khilaa'e
If the autumn waste lays to a garden, the spring will bring that garden into flower;
Jo baag bahaar mein ujare use kaun khilaa'e
But if that garden is destroyed in the springtime, who can make it bloom?
Ham se mat puuchho kaise mandir tuuta sapnon ka
Don't ask me how the temple of dreams shattered;
Logon kii baat nahiin hai yeh qissa hai apnon ka
It is not a matter for the people, this is a story for intimates.
Koii dushman thes lagaa'e to miit jiya bahalaa'e
If some enemy strikes you a blow, your friend will cheer your heart;
Man miit jo ghaav lagaa'e use kaun mitaa'e
But if a loved one inflicts the wound, who will erase it?
Na jaane kya ho jaata jaane ham kya kar jaate
Who knows what would happen, who knows what we would do.
Piite hain to zinda hain na piite no mar jaate
If we drink then we live; not drinking, we die
Duniya jo pyaasa rakhe to madiraa pyaas bujhaa'e
If the world thirsts, then wine will quench it
Madiraa jo pyaas lagaa'e use kaun bujhaa'e
But if the wine thirsts, who can satisfy its need?
Maana tuufaan ke aage nahiin chalta zor kisii ka
I understand that in the face of a storm, no one's force will work
Maujon ka dosh nahiin hai yeh dosh hai aur kisii ka
But this isn't the fault of the waves; someone else is to blame.
Manjhdhaar mein naiya Dole to maanjhii paar lagaa'e
If in midstream a boat rocks, then the sailor can cast it ashore.
Maanjhii jo naav Duboye use kaun bachaa'e
But if the sailor sinks it midstream, who can save it?
