A Good Laugh When It Was Most Needed….

This is really going to be a short one because I am in a terrible condition at the moment physically (and also mentally) . I haven’t slept much since past couple of days and I am sure, with the present state of mine, its not going to happen anytime soon for next couple of days as well. Anyways, I was listening to To Phir Aao in a loop (have listened some 60 times already I believe since morning) and was checking OTN forums side by side. One thread caught my attention since the request given by the poster is really weird. Its like asking that how can I fit engine of a car of 1980 make in the most latest car available in 2010. I did ask him that what’s the reason he is willing to do so. He replied that his company’s most important program is not yet ready to get to the latest release of oracle database and also, 8i is a more reliable and easy to use version than the latest releases. Okay, I must admit, I didn’t have a smile from last couple of days on my face but this one, this thread made me laugh really really loud :) . I don’t know what I can say for that guy, for his company, about his company’s most important program but I do want to say thanks to him for giving me a much needed laugh :) . Now back to listening the same song and getting lost in thoughts :) . Oh yes, may be will take break to have medicine too only if I would remember doing it ;-) !

Sleepless….

Sleep and thoughts, these are like two step-sisters who really don’t like each other. Only one can stay in the room of eyes at one time. The moment both get together, you can be assured that they won’t like each other and will fight. Most of the times, its the sleep who has to run away. Thoughts never get over-powered by sleep because unlike sleep, they have no dependency on anything like eyes must be closed for example. Thoughts, along with their buddy, mind, are always around, irrespective the eyes are open or closed. There is not such a big thing to not to have sleep in the eyes but the bigger question is, what to do when you are not sleepy and can’t do what you want to do at that time too? And to make things more crispy, thoughts just keep on doing aerobics in the courtyard of your mind when you are thinking all this! I have gone mad? No, there is no such thing. I am just lost in thoughts and can’t do what I want to right now so I am just trying to make my own self smile a little bit, a not so easy thing to do if you ask me and also doesn’t happen much, at least truly, if you know me and on top of all this, especially when you are sitting all alone at 1:29am. Hmmm may be reading something about Oracle Database would help :) .

Tiring Travel….

Last week was a almost like roller-coaster ride. There were many things happening , some were making me happy, some were making me upset. You can imagine from this that the day I landed in my hotel, it had its broadband stopped and the irony was, they were having two connections and both stopped on the same day. I was told that all would be fine in a day only but it took them 3 days to finally sort it and then too, it did work only for 1 day properly. On 4th day, it was again not working and when on the final day of my stay, it did work too, I didn’t need it much anyways since there was a specific reason that I wanted internet so much in this week. I don’t lose my calm soon but I hate it when someone tries to give me a complete nonsense like my hotel guys were doing when I was asking them about the internet thing. If the same had happened in my home, I would had made sure that within 24 hours, it is resolved and that’s exactly the time which the company promises to fix issues, whose internet me and that hotel , both are using. So how come for a home user they would honor the promise but for a commercial user, they won’t? That’s just plain stupidity to tell that none is picking calls to register complaint or there is technician on the way but hasn’t reached even till 8pm when he was supposed to reach by 11.30am! I am nice but that doesn’t mean that I shall buy any and every stupid excuse. I had a BIG argument with the manager and I told him that if that’s the level of handling complaints, I shall probably not stay here from next time. I can handle things not getting sorted but at least give me a relevant excuse. If you would tell me that internet from the company has stopped and our LAN has also stopped working so we shall fix that first, being an IT guy (and a very deep IT guy) , I shall surely ask what’s wrong in your LAN and how did you figure it out in the first place? And then you don’t pick my call even when you know its me and why I am calling? I happen to know the owner of the hotel personally and that’s what the last I said that I don’t want to do this but I think, I need to make him aware what’s going on here and mind it, I was not just threatening. Its not my nature to do so , I was really really intended to do it when I said I shall do it. I don’t know whether that triggered an action but things did work out after that. I did meet the owner before I left and he was really feeling very sorry because it wasn’t just me but all the customers who were facing trouble. He told me that hotel staff never even told him that such kind of issue has come, to which I said that I was going to tell you but next day itself, it did get sort out so I didn’t call you. Anyways, it worked for me a day only and I must say, I was really happy on that day. It was a real bad experience and I just hope it won’t get repeated again.

In the work, things were okay. There was a trouble with some machines initially and there was some delegates who were taking a long time to understand things but other than that, things were manageable. On Friday, I was not well at all and was just wishing that I could cancel the session. But somehow, I did manage to finish the day on a good note and all the guys were happy. Few took me to a cup of coffee as well for which I am just really thankful to them.  Thanks so much guys for all the support and kind words. It was a great time spent and yes, I do remember that I have to reply to your emails and I shall do that as soon as I shall be back into my senses which are not really very in a stable state at the moment.

OKay, so I ranted about hotel , mentioned about session, what’s left? Aah yes, my yesterday’s travel which at one time, appeared to be a never-ending one. I normally take a return flight on Friday night but thanks to ever-increasing flight costs, I was told that this is not possible and I must stay at hotel for an additional night and take the flight on Saturday morning. I wish I could be happy about it but there wasn’t any. But I had no choice except saying “yes” and so I did too. I was given choice between flights at 6:30 and 9:00am. I thought it would be a little too early to travel at 6:30 ( stupid decision and silly me to think like that), why not sleep for some time and take the 9o’clock flight. I didn’t think ( may be was not in the right state of mind at that time) that even if I would have to take 9am flight, I would need to wake up early( it became really early eventually) so I could wake up some time more earlier than that too. But my mind was somewhere else and was thinking about some other things, I thought to give a go for 9am timing. It takes about an hour to reach airport, even when there is no traffic and its mandatory to reach at least 45 minutes before the flight time as the gates get closed after that time, its always good to reach at least 2 hours before the scheduled time. This means, I have to be at airport at 7am or may be at 7:30am and that means, I must start not more than 6:30am and that means, I must settle my bills and all before that, not to mention my bath and other things. Well, I woke up at 4am! Yeah, its early. Actually I woke up the previous night also at 4am but that was for a different reason. Anyways, I woke up at 4am, got ready right on time ( just for the record and if you don’t know it already, I hate to be late) and I was waiting for my cab which I asked to come by 6am. Even when I explained to the cab driver where to reach with all the necessary details and all, he still missed it and went somewhere else. Since I don’t speak the local language which was Kannada ( language for the state Karnataka ) , I made him talk to hotel lady. She explained to him where to reach and I don’t know what else they were talking about for 15 minutes on a call which was made from my phone but anyways, she did explain and I believe , he did understand too because he arrived soon after the call finished. So we started by 6:20am for the airport. I didn’t sleep so well the other night and not so much on the same night too and there was a severe headache and eyes were burning like anything too, I fell asleep. We reached airport on time. Since I was going to get breakfast in the flight ( which is not good at all in the taste but still, its there) , I didn’t carry much cash with me but just enough to get the cab once I shall land and then to take the bus. After some 30 minutes, I came to know that the flight is delayed. I was thinking for some time that whether I should eat anything out of the OVER-PRICED things available from the airport given that I had a very limited cash. Then finally, I went ahead and bought a (overpriced) burger and coffee and paid from my credit card. It didn’t cost an arm and leg but it was still so much high and I am sure, I would  never see such pricing on a normal outlet for a cold burger and half-warm coffee. Anyways I did have just in case that the flight would get more delayed, I can survive. Fortunately, flight didn’t get more delayed ( it was already delayed by more than an hour). As I said , breakfast in the flight was there and was really bad. The in-flight entertainment system had nothing new. I had already seen both the movies , did watch all the talk shows and also have heard the songs too before. May be its not the fault of airline as they refresh the content I guess after a month but its me only who is travelling more faster than they update their content. Finally we landed and this time, the flight did land on the new international airport. It was my first time to see it so I was a little excited and I wasn’t really disappointed when I finally had a look. Its indeed capable to beat any other country’s airport really bad ( it has already beaten most. Its the 6th largest one in the world) and is very well maintained. My only issue with it ( so far) is that it took really really long time for my bag to arrive. But if I think about it a little more closely, there were three flights whose luggage was supposed to arrive on the same belt and this can cause delay assuming which flight arrived sooner than the other. Anyways, after waiting for almost half an hour, I got my luggage, took the cab and went towards bus stand. I don’t know what was happening yesterday but there was a HUGE traffic jam just about on every road where my cab was going  (and later, where my bus was going) . It took me two hours to reach bus stand. I got the bus on time and I got a bus which normally is driven very fast so I thought, all is not so bad and I shall reach home on time. But unfortunately, it was just too good to be happening for not one but two reasons. One, there was a HUGE jam just about everywhere. I did get to hear from the airport when I took my cab that “wow, very nice name, Aman” from the cab booking person but I didn’t imagine that people would drive in front of my bus and cab too to have one look of me :) . Okay okay, I guess I am definitely speaking nonsense but still, there was a lot of traffic blocks everywhere. The second reason, which if wasn’t there, could have made some difference was that the bus driver was driving bus like he brought us for a city tour and wanted to ensure that we get a look on each and every shop, street, malls, heck even of the people who were walking on the road. To sum up, he was driving super slow. It takes normally about 6 hours but thanks to both the reasons, yesterday it took  nearly 9. I was sitting completely quite and didn’t even sleep for a minute. The only meal which I had was on the airport, that burger and in the flight, a kid patties. I had bought  a pack of chips which when I tried to open, got opened from the bottom resulting in all the chips kissing the bus’s floor and me looking at them with so much of anger in my eyes. I had a water bottle which I didn’t open in the entire travel and brought it sealed , just as it was given to me by the shopkeeper to home. I did do one good thing that I wore a woolen shirt thinking that it would be cold on the way and because I would be in a bus and it did prove to be right. The only good thing which did happen in the entire 9 hours that I got few texts which brought smile on the face, that’s all. 

So I am having some free time with me and I shall be spending it to do some reading of my Oracle related stuff in this time and also, I would go for some shopping.  I am still not very much over from the yesterday’s almost 20hours of tiredness so Oracle stuff would be happening some time next week. I shall do something which I can only do when I am at home and about which no one else knows. What? Well, if you don’t know it, you are surely not that “one” person and that means, I am not telling you :) .

Best Wishes For A New Life….

Most of the times when I shall go for the travel, its for work. Well, its not most of the times but all the time actually but still, you got it. I still have to go for that travel where I wouldn’t have to worry about work, session, rating and all such kind of things and most importantly, a travel doing which I shall be actually happy. Anyways, I shall stop about talking about “my” things and mention a wedding which I attended yesterday of my friend Pavan.

I met Pavan couple of years back in Hyderabad. He joined in front of me and since the time he has joined, we have worked together on various programs and have successfully delivered them as well. To tell about Pavan, he is mostly a quite guy( not much but still he is) but very hard-working, calm, very principled , thinks so deeply about things and above all, a gem of a friend. We don’t get a chance to meet up since we live some thousands of miles away and only time I meet him is when I am out here for work. Still, whenever I am here, I try to spend some time for sure with him and if I can’t make it happen, he would make it a point to come and see me, even it may be just for some small duration like for a tea-break. I have got the privilege that he shared a lot of his life with me and I know, he has worked very hard to get at the place where he is at the moment. Needless to mention, I hold a great deal of regard and respect for him and I can say that he is one of my good friends that my travel has given me a chance to meet. Few days back, he shared with me that he is going to get married and I must attend his wedding. Well, nothing like attending a wedding of your friend but I don’t stay here and if I would be in a program, it would not be possible for me come for it. So I mentioned the same to him and to which he said that he would try to work with the scheduling team so that I can be here on work and can attend the wedding. Good, I said and then I got busy with other programs. In the meantime, I met him several times and we were trying to figure out how we can schedule something and also, I was looking at what schedule I have got. Finally, I came to know that I have had a program which was happening on the same dates when his wedding was scheduled. I told Pavan that I have a program happening so it won’t be possible for me to come since his wedding would be a day-time wedding and was happening on a working day so there was no chance for me to make to it. He did give me invitation card, which he had got for very selected people and said that I must come, doesn’t matter what! Hmm tough thing actually because I had a program and I can’t skip it. Well, I was planning to say sorry to him and then I came to know that my schedule is cancelled and I got a week free. In the meantime, Pavan mentioned to me that since I am free so I must come now. Well, I didn’t have any excuse with me for not coming so I finally decided to go and attend his wedding. I booked my ticket, guesthouse and told him that I am coming all the way from my place to attend his wedding. He was very, VERY happy to know it.

So I got here one day prior to the wedding. Wedding was on Friday and it was happening very far from that place where I am staying. I was told that it would take some half an hour to be there. The whole training team was coming as well so I thought it would be good. And since it was my first time to attend a south-indian wedding as well, I was very interested to know what rituals happen here in this part of India when it comes to wedding. I booked the cab and started for the wedding hall’s location. When I reached and paid the bill, I came to know that I had spent an hour to reach the place and it was about 40kms away from my guesthouse. There were lots of people already there in the hall but I didn’t know anyone so I was just standing at watching everyone. In the meantime, a guy with the name Malik( I hope I am correct) who mentioned that he is Pavan’s cousin, came towards me and asked am I Aman. Since I am Aman, I said yes and he said Pavan has sent him to welcome me and also to make sure that I don’t feel alone and treated well. Great, I said to him and we went to have coffee. We met Pavan on the way and he was very happy to see me. Me and Malik were talking for some time. He didn’t know that I came from all the way just to attend the wedding so he was shocked when he came to know about it. A promise is a promise, I said to him and all he could say was that “its' just great man, really nice” . In the meantime, other training team members, Lakshmi, lalita and Padam also arrived. I joined them and Malik left us to be with Pavan and rest of the family members.

I was watching all the things happening there and I must say, there is a lot of difference between the wedding of North and South India. Without going into details, I shall just say that even though there are lots of rituals which are followed in North Indian wedding, they are far too many in a south Indian wedding and above all, there is a lot of care that’s taken to follow them as well. Also, they go on for a  much longer period of time as well. There are very significant things which are different, for example, the girl would change her dress twice and would wear a certain color’s dress for a certain occasion. The same goes for guy too who would change his dress( a typical Indian dress and not any suit or something) twice. There was no dancing and all happening, there was no orchestra or DJ who was there. The guys fro the groom’s side were very decent and were totally behaving themselves. About food, it was  a mix of both North and South Indian cuisine  but the north Indian stuff was made like a south Indian stuff and that kind of changes the taste completely. There were no spoons , another major difference between a north and south Indian wedding as its a very common thing here to not to use spoons but you can’t imagine seeing it happening in a North Indian wedding. I can’t compare things brick to brick but still, I can say that I did enjoy it very much and it was a great experience. Even I can say that in some things, I did like the wedding of South Indian style even more than what are there in a North Indian wedding.  The most important thing is that I was able to attend Pavan’s wedding and I wish a very happy married life to Pavan and Swati. May God bless both of them with a lot of happiness and success. Thank you Pavan for giving me a chance to be a part of a really big moment of your life and I hope from now on, the only thing that you would get from life is happiness and success. Good luck my friend!

One More Magical, To Phir Aao….

Another sneak peak from the list of my favorite songs! Just like the previous two which I have put up here, I listen to this song almost daily and many times. Its from movie Awarapan and the song’s title is To Phir Aao. Its a song which is screened to portray the pain of a guy whose beloved  dies in front of him and that too, with a bullet which was meant for the guy actually. He watches his gal die in his arms and after that, just becomes a cold, stone-hearted person. This song goes along in the entire movie depicting the pain of this guy who longs for his beloved gal and asks her to come back to him by any means! It goes without saying that its an awesome musical piece and I really do like it so very much!

This song has couple of versions and I shall try to put its complete version here. It would be in two parts. The first part has less music and actually is from the time when both guy and gal are together. The other half comes up some time later in the movie when the gal is already dead and the guy’s heart has become a stone. I am also going to put the videos here since the song’s appearance from the videos, makes its lyrics much more powerful IMO! Below is first version’s video. I shall translate this first before going to the second part.

 

Below are the lyrics of this version, first in Hindi,

To phir aao, mujhko satao,
Mujhko rulao!

Hum rahe na rahe, ghum sahein na sahein,
Shaamein dhalein na dhalein,
Ye raatein kate na katein,
To phir aao, mujhko satao,
Mujhko rulao!
Aa bhi jao, aa bhi jao!
Aa bhi jao, aa bhi jao!
Aa bhi jao, aa bhi jao!

Hum rahe na rahe,dil ki sune na sune,
Ye toofan thamein na thamein,
Ye aansoo rukein na rukein!
To phir aao, mujhko satao,
Mujhko rulao!
Aa bhi jao, aa bhi jao!
Aa bhi jao, aa bhi jao!
Aa bhi jao, aa bhi jao!

Sapno k samandar mein, doobte chale jana hai.
In raahon mein jo khwab hain,
Un khwabon ko mujhe pana hai!
To phir aao, mujhko satao,
Maan bhi jao,
Aa bhi jao, aa bhi jao!
Aa bhi jao, aa bhi jao!
Aa bhi jao, aa bhi jao!

 

And here is its translation in English,

Then come to me, tease me!
Then come to me, make me cry!

I may or may not be there,
May or may not bear sorrows!
Evenings may pass or not,
These nights may end or not!
Then come to me, tease me!
Then come to me, make me cry!
Come now, oh come now(repeat)

I may or may not be there,
May or may not listen to what heart says!
These storms may or may not settle,
These tears may or may not stop!
Then come to me, tease me!
Then come to me, make me cry!
Come now, oh come now(repeat)

I shall drown myself in the ocean of dreams,
On these paths, whatever are the dreams,
I have to make those dreams come true!
Then come to me, tease me!
Then come to me, make me cry!
Come now, oh come now(repeat)

 

The second version of the song is having more music and is a bit fast compared to the first version. But it has some additional lyrics as well. Below, first is the video of the second version and its lyrics in Hindi.

 

To phir aao, mujhko satao,
To phir aao, Mujhko rulao!

Dil baadal bane, aankhein behne lagein,
Aahein aise uthen, jaise aandhi chale!
To phir aao, mujhko satao,
To phir aao, mujhko rulao!
Aa bhi jao, aa bhi jao!
Aa bhi jao, aa bhi jao!
Aa bhi jao, aa bhi jao!

Ghum le ja tere, jo bhi tuune diye,
Ya phir mujhko bata, inko kaise sahein!
To phir aao, mujhko satao,
To phir aao, mujhko rulao!
Aa bhi jao, aa bhi jao!
Aa bhi jao, aa bhi jao!
Aa bhi jao, aa bhi jao!

Ab to iss manzar se, mujhe chale jana hai,
Jin raahon pe mera pyar hai,
Un raahon ko mujhe paana hai!
To phir aao, mujhko satao,
To phir aao, mujhko rulao!
Aa bhi jao, aa bhi jao!
Aa bhi jao, aa bhi jao!
Aa bhi jao, aa bhi jao!

 

And its translation in English,

Then come to me, tease me!
Then come to me, make me cry!

Heart becomes a cloud, eyes start flowing,
Like storms come, cries raise within!
Then come to me, tease me!
Then come to me, make me cry!
Come now, oh come now(repeat)

Come and take away all these pains, which you have given to me,
Or else, tell me the way how should I make myself bear them!
Then come to me, tease me!
Then come to me, make me cry!
Come now, oh come now(repeat)

Now, from this place, I have to leave,
Those paths where my love has gone,
I have to find those paths!
Then come to me, tease me!
Then come to me, make me cry!
Come now, oh come now(repeat)

 

I am having a really bad backache and headache at the moment. Though I have tried to be as accurate as possible and not to miss anything, but I can’t be sure about it since I am not able to concentrate properly due to headache and backache. If I have missed something or I have put lyrics and/or translation wrong, feel free to put corrections in the comment section. I have nothing more with me to add to the song and to its beauty so I am going to end the post here only and shall get back to listen to it.

Another Musical Magical, Agar Tum Mil Jao….

As I said in my last post, I shall try to put some of those song’s translations here which I love to hear so much! There are so many of good songs but there are a few which are very close to my heart and I listen them continuously, some hundreds of times at one go. Yes, I am a little crazy but that’s what I am and there is nothing what can be done about it now when I have already lived almost half of my life. Anyways, the song which I am going to put today here is from an Indian movie but is not an original song composed for it by the music composer. Its sung originally by a Pakistani singer Tassawar Khanum and I must admit, she has sung it really well. So well, that its picked up and inserted in the movie Zeher word by word . I am not in a mood to do any discussions about the entire topic of piracy, copying the music and/or stealing it as I am in a completely different mindset at the moment. Leaving all these things aside, I am just going to pick the movie’s song, in the male voice to be precise,  and going to translate its lyrics in English. Its an amazing song which is romantic yet very sad. How you look and feel about it, would depend on this that in what mood you are listening it. You may probably be interested to know that in what mood I am listening to it, isn’t it? Well, the answer is, I am not going to tell ! All I would say is that I have heard it some couple of hundred times, even today too :) . I am going to put the song’s link from Youtube below. Please note that this is specifically the male version. The actual song in the movie is sung by a female singer and its video is also available on Youtube. The one below is not actually a video but since its easy to embed it, so I have used it.

 

So first, the lyrics in Hindi.

Agar tum mil jao, Jamana chhod denge hum!
Tumhein pa kar jamane bhar se rishta tod denge hum!

Bina tere koi dilkash najara hum na dekhenge,
Tumhein na ho pasand, us ko dubara hum na dekhenge!
Teri soorat na jis mein,Wo sheesha tod denge hum!
Agar tum mil jao, Jamana chhod denge hum!
Tumhein pa kar jamane bhar se rishta tod denge hum!

Tere dil mein rahenge tujh ko apna ghar bana lenge,
Tere khwabon ko gehno ki tarah khud par saja lenge,
Kasam teri kasam, taqdeer ka rukh mod denge hum!
Agar tum mil jao, Jamana chhod denge hum!
Tumhein pa kar jamane bhar se rishta tod denge hum!

Tumehin hum apne jismo-jaan mein kuch aise basa lenge,
Teri khushboo apne jism ki khushboo bana lenge!
Khuda se bhi jo na toote, wo rishta jod lenge hum!
Agar tum mil jao, Jamana chhod denge hum!
Tumhein pa kar jamane bhar se rishta tod denge hum!

And now, its translation in English,

If I can have you, I shall leave this world after that!
After being with you, I shall break all relations with this entire world!

Without you, I wont see any good looking scenery,
What you won't like, I won't see it ever again!
That mirror, which doesn't have your reflection,
I shall break that mirror into pieces!
If I can have you(repeat)

I shall live in your heart, I shall dwell within yourself,
I shall make your wishes my ornaments and shall wear them!
I swear on you, I shall change the course of the fate!
I shall break that mirror into pieces!
If I can have you(repeat)

I shall engrave you over my heart and soul so deeply,
I shall make fragnance of your body of my own.
What even God won't be able to break, I shall make that relation with you!
If I can have you, I shall leave this world after that!
After being with you, I shall break all relations with this entire world!

I am not sure how someone else would react on this song, but for me, this is a really really special song and I like it so much! In fact, its playing in the background when I am writing this post as well. Since I am in a very weird mood, I shall close the post now and have a cup of tea.

A Heart-Touching Song, Jaa Sanam Mujh Ko Hai….

I always say, music is a great power. It can bring smiles on someone’s face within minutes and at the same times, it can bring ocean of tears in someone’s eyes as well. When this kind of music is combined with heart-touching lyrics, it becomes an immortal, really strong, heart-touching musical piece. There are many such songs which you can hear for hours and years without getting bored or tired. And every time you listen to them, they strike as powerfully as they do when you hear them for the first time! I have a huge listing of such songs with me which can rip the heart apart and can shake even the most hard hearted souls too. I am listening to one out that listing today and thought would translate it as well. Its from the movie Na Tum Jaano Na Hum which came years ago and somehow, I never could see it in one go. Though the movie didn’t do great on the box-office and even its musical score wasn’t really that good but it did have two, yes not one but two such songs which fit into that immortal category for sure-at least according to me! I am going to translate out of those two, one song Jaa Sanam Mujh Ko Hai today.

This song is actually a duet song. Both, boy and girl are singing but the major portion is sung by the guy. The gal is having her part in the song as well but the emphasis is over the guy since its guy’s pain which is shown from this song. This song comes from a situation where guy has to see that the gal he loves, she can’t be his and is going to marry someone else, in-fact his best friend who is unaware about them. So for the sake of friendship and being so good, he leaves everything and goes very far away from everyone, from his friend and from that gal too and at that time, he sings this song. I am not sure who would like it and who wouldn’t but I do like it so much! The emotions shown by Hrithik Roshan, the pain he has portrayed through his eyes and face, I am not sure what else I can say about this except this that my heart breaks into pieces when I look at him! Just to be fair, the gal’s portion is not less important but for me, may be because I am a guy myself, the guy’s part is more appealing and is more heart-touching. The lyrics are also in such a way that the most painful words are given to guy only. I shall not be a decision maker for this point. I like some portion more than the other one and I am sure, someone else may have the opposite liking as well so its all okay as overall, the song is a very nice one IMO!  The song is in Hindi and I shall translate it in English. You can hear(and see as well) the song from below,

 

First the lyrics of this song in Hindi,

(Gal)…. Jaa sanam mujh ko hai pyar pe aitbaar,
Main karungi tera intezaar!
(Guy)….Main itni door chala jaunga,
Tujhe yaad bhi na aaunga!
Ye baat hai aur jaanam ke,
Tujhe main bhool na paunga!

(Guy)….Tum se hi thi meri jindagi,
Lekin yeh kya hua!
Tum bin bhi main jee raha hoon,
Main kaisa hoon bewafa!
(Gal)….Jaa sanam aayegi fir laut k ye bahar,
Main karungi tera intezaar!
Haan sanam mujh ko hai, pyar pe aitbaar,
Main karungi tera intezaar!
(Guy)….Main itni door(repeat)

(Guy)….Main itni door chala jaunga,
Tujhe yaad bhi na aaunga!
Ye baat hai aur jaanan ke,
Tujhe main bhool na paunga!

(Guy)….Shayad kabhi kahin tumhein,
Meri mile khabar!
Kal lena yaad bas mujhe,
Mumkin ho ye agar!
(Gal)….Jaa sanam tere saath hai meri jaan mere yaar,
Mujh ko hai pyar pe aitbaar,
Main karungi tera intezaar!

I have put the notations of Guy/Gal to make the distinction that which piece is sung by whom. Now, the lyrics in English,

(Gal)….Go my love, I trust on love,I shall wait for you!
(Guy)…. I shall go this much far away,
That I won't even come in your memories too!
But that's another thing altogether my love,
That I would never be able to forget you!

(Guy)….You were my life, I was alive because of you,
But what this has happened?
I am living without you,
How disloyal I am!
(Gal)….Go love,there would be again happiness,
I shall wait for you!
I trust on love,I shall wait for you!
(Guy)…. I shall go this much far away,
That I won't even come in your memories too!
But that's another thing altogether my love,
That I would never be able to forget you!

(Guy)…. I shall go this much far away,
That I won't even come in your memories too!
But that's another thing altogether my love,
That I would never be able to forget you!

(Guy)….May be sometime in the future,
You may hear some news about me!
Just do this much that try to recall me,
If that would be possible for you!
(Gal)….Go love, you have my life with you,
I shall wait for you!
I trust on love,I shall wait for you!
(Guy)…. I shall go this much far away,
That I won't even come in your memories too!
But that's another thing altogether my love,
That I would never be able to forget you!

As I said, I don’t have anything to add or describe the song and the pain hidden beneath it. I shall be going ahead and doing translations of some of my favorite songs soon. So keep watching this space!

Good Times….

I am supposed to be on the bed at this moment when I am sitting and writing this post since I haven’t slept not even for a second in the past night. Why? Well, I won’t mention the reason of “why”  but I just to add to it, I haven’t slept much almost the entire last week. As I said, I won’t mention “why” here but the reason that I started the post from this as the opening line is that as a direct result of past sleepless night, I should have been on the bed at not here, writing this post. And to tell the truth, I was actually on the bed only before few thoughts hit my mind all of a sudden and don’t know where sleep went after that! So my eyes are wide awake, am feeling uneasy and having worries in heart.

I haven’t written much in the last week. Just to summarize a long story short, I didn’t feel like sitting and writing anything. Okay, leaving it apart, let’s just talk about the last week. I was out for a program in this week and I just managed to finish it. It went for an entire week and it went really well. There were amazing guys in the session, intelligent, friendly and very co-operative. We had a very good time discussing things about oracle database and even other stuff as well, like music, food , culture and what not! The place where I was, I can’t recall at all that ever it happened there that delegates have asked an instructor to take a snap with them. Fortunately and thanks to so kind delegates of this session, I can proudly say that I got this privilege this time and may be I am the first one also to get such kind gesture from the delegates. All I can say to them is thanks a bunch guys for treating me so good! I hope we can meet some time soon again!

While coming back also, there were some pleasant things which did happen. When I reached bus stand and was looking for the bus, I heard a bus conductor giving voices for my place. I approached him and found that it was not a normal bus but an air-conditioned bus which has a high fair. Fortunately. I had exactly the same cash with me what was bus’s fare. I smiled and told the conductor that I do have the fare with me, to which he smiled back and said, “no probs bai(brother in Punjabi), even if wouldn’t had, I would have taken you along” . A very nice example of the friendly nature of Punjabi’s, something over which I am always proud! When the bus stopped, he especially asked me to come with him and asked whether I shall have dinner? I didn’t have anything except a cup of tea at the airport but I wasn’t feeling like eating anything as well. Again, I won’t mention the reason why I wasn’t feeling like eating in the first place. Anyways, so I just said that I won’t have anything but a cup of tea should be okay. So me, conductor, driver and a helper, we all had tea together. I am always like this that if I would like someone, I would also treat him like my brother only, making sure that I serve him really well and take good care of him. And when I see the same done by someone else, I feel really really happy to see that still, there are some people who have a good heart in them. It was just great to be treated like that!

I am having some free time with me but I am not happy. I guess, its probably the third time I am going to say( or may be the fourth time, not sure) that I won’t mention the reason of this as well. I have finished my work related stuff just now and now would be reading some thing. What? Well, something which I won’t mention here LOL ! I think, post’s title should have been,I won’t mention isn’t it? ;-)
