I can’t help it!! I am this excited kid in the shop called YouTube! 😀 I am discovering stuff which I was connected to indirectly since my childhood (like this song. Don’t remember ever seeing it though I recollect seeing Dil ki ye aarzoo). This song is a very haunting and a beautifully sung one (in that lovely nasal tone of Salma Agha). Man, I would love to know a Pathan woman (I do, but no harm asking for more) in real life.
I am providing the translation herewith:
ch [The yearnings of this heart have become tears that flow.
Though loyal I’ve been, loneliness is all I shall ever know.]
Life has come to be an unquenchable thirst
The tales of love remain incompletely versed.
Perhaps this might be the final torment he metes me.
Thus I received each [suffering] and bear such a life’s lee.
