Another lovely song...



(When you watch the video on Youtube don't forget to see the hilarious and irrelevant commments underneath!)

Lyrics:

Zindagi bhar nahin bhulegi vo barasaat ki raat
ek anjaan haseena se mulaakaat ki raat
zindagi bhar nahin bhulegi...........

haay vo reshami zulfon se barasata paani
phool se gaalon pe ruk ne ko tarasata paani
dil men toofaan uthaate hue
dil men toofaan uthaate hue, haalaat ki raat
zindagi bhar nahin bhulegi...............

dar ke bijali se, achaanak vo lipatana us ka
aur phir sharm se balakhaake simatana us ka
kabhi dekhi na, suni aisi ho
kabhi dekhi na, suni aisi tilismaat ki raat
zindagi bhar nahin bhulegi.................

surkh aanchal ko daba kar jo nichoda us ne
dil pe jalata hua ek teer sa chhoda us ne
aag paani men lagaate hue
aag paani men lagaate hue, jazabaat ki raat
zindagi bhar nahin bhulegi.....................

mere naghmon men jo basati hai vo tasveer thi vo
naujavaani ke haseen khwaab ki tabeer thi vo
aasmanon se utar aai thi jo raat ki raat
zindagi bhar nahin bhulegi.....................

"Duet Version"

[lata:]
zindagi bhar nahin bhulegi vo barasaat ki raat
ek anjaan musaafir se mulaaqaat ki raat
zindagi bhar nahin bhulegi ................

haay jis raat mere dil ne dhadakana sikha
shokh jazabaat ne seene men bhadakana sikha
meri taqadir men nikhari hui, ho
meri taqadir men nikhari hui, saramaat ki raat
zindagi bhar nahin bhulegi.............

dil ne jab pyaar ke rangin fasaane chhede
aankhon-aankhon ne vafaaon ke taraane chhede
soz men doob gai aaj vahi
soz men doob gai aaj vahi, naghamaat ki raat
zindagi bhar nahin bhulegi.............

[Rafi]
ruuthanevaali !
ruuthanevaali meri baat pe maayus na ho
baheke-baheke Khayaalaat se maayus na ho
khatm hogi na kabhi tere, ho
khatm hogi na kabhi tere mere saath ki raat
zindagi bhar nahin ...,..............

All my life, I'll never forget that rainy night
When I met an unknown beauty...

Oh! The water raining from those silky tresses..
Water, that yearned to stay on those flower-like cheeks...
That emotional night, that awakened a storm in my heart (All my life, I'll never forget)

Afraid of the lightning, she suddenly embraced me..
And then, shyly, shrank back, blushing:
I'd never heard or seen anything like this..
A night of enchantment (All my life, I'll never forget)

She pressed the end of her wet sari and wrung it out;
And in doing so, she shot a burning arrow into my heart.
Setting water alight....
A night of such scenes (All my life, I'll never forget)

She's the image set in my poetry;
She's the picture of youthful beauty:
A heaven-born night of nights.....(All my life, I'll never forget)

Weekend plans....

Going with 23 children from the

Valley School

(yes, the same place where I go birding so often!) to

Biligiri Rangana Hills

because

ATREE

has organized an outing for them, and I will be taking the children on a nature trail on Saturday, and on a safari (with a local guide) on Sunday evening. I hope to be able to visit, and possibly stay, at

Gorukana

the resort run by

VGKK

and which is now mired in

controversy .

Will be happy to take a look for myself! I'm back by Monday evening...and I suppose, the minute my back is turned (I will be away from the net) , all my LJ friends will rush to make the most interesting posts imaginable!
