A Heartbreaking Song, Akhyiaan Ch Paani( Nachhattar Gill)….

I am sitting here in this room alone at the moment, thinking about tons of things, lost in many many of the thoughts. Why? Well, that’s not something that I can tell, may be it’s just my own fault so I can’t say anything or may be….never mind, it’s not important, neither me and neither the thoughts of mine.I am really worried as well since someone is not feeling well and I can’t do anything about it.  So let’s see, what you do sitting idle and alone? No, I don’t watch tv much (and not really came here to watch it anyways) . No, not going out or eating too, not in a mood to go anywhere (though the cab driver of mine was telling me some places to check) and haven’t eaten anything actually since yesterday except a stupid cutlet. So what else? Well,  I checked OTN forums, my emails(nothing much is there) and then listened to songs repeatedly on my iPod.  So when I was done doing all that, I decided to check whether there is any new song out or not and guess what, there is! Its from Nachhattar Gill, a marvelous singer whose voice is amazing and the choice of songs is also superb. This time, he has paired up with S. M. Sadiq, a poet about whom I did write couple of months back here as well that he is known as “poetry machine” and is best known for his sad songs. The voice of Nachhattar Gill and the lyrics of Sadiq has created a masterpiece, Akhiyaan Ch Paani which means water in the eyes(tears to be precise).  The title song, Akhiyaan ch paani is simply superb and I can go and buy the entire album for this one song only. To make it really look good, the video has also come up brilliantly. Needless to mention that I did like this song so much that I decided to translate it in English. There is an official video release of this song which I am putting up here but it has one stanza less. In my translation, I shall be putting the complete song. If you do want to listen to the complete song, click on the link that I have given somewhere above. Here is the official video of the song,

 

And here is the song’s lyrics, first in Punjabi,

Jadon tak eh akhiyaan ch paani oh sajjna,
Main hanjhuan di mehfil sajaunda rawanga!
Main samjhanga ehnu naseeban da likheya,
Tuun russadi rawin te main manaunda rawanga!
Jadon tak eh akhiyaan ch paani (repeat)

Wafawan de badle tunn de mainu dukhde,
Main aashiq haan eho taqdeer meri.
Mainu es duniya di parwah ni koi,
Main naaz tere uthaunda rawanga!
Jadon tak eh akhiyaan ch paani oye sajjna(repeat)

Udeekan di sooli tuun tangeya eh mainu,
Main si v nai karni aazma lai sajjna!
Tuun aawein ya na aawein marzi eh teri,
Main raawan ch akhiyan ch vichaunda rawanga!
Main samjhanga ehnu naseeban da likheya,
Tuun russadi rawin te main manaunda rawanga!
Jadon tak eh akhiyaan ch paani oye sajjna (repeat)

Main ohna thaawan nu  bhull te nai sakda,
Sadiq asin jithe milde saan dowein!
Ohna rukhan di chhaan thalle baith ke,
Main mohabbat di barsi manaunda rawanga!
Main samjhanga ehnu naseeban da likheya,
Tuun russadi rawin te main manaunda rawanga!
Jadon tak eh akhiyaan ch paani(repeat)

Jadon tak eh akhiyaan ch paani oh sajjna,
Main hanjhuan di mehfil sajaunda rawanga!
Main samjhanga ehnu naseeban da likheya,
Tuun russadi rawin te main manaunda rawanga!
Jadon tak eh akhiyaan ch paani!

 

And here is the translation of the same in English,

As long as I shall have water in my eyes my love,
I shall keep on organizing party of tears.
I shall take it as fate only,
That you would keep on getting angry and I shall keep on trying to console you.
As long as I shall have water in my eyes my love....(repeat)

In return of my love, you keep on giving me cries and pains,
I am a lover and that's what my fate is.
I don't care about this world at all,
I shall keep on taking all your mood swings.
As long as I shall have water in my eyes my love....(repeat)

You have kept me hanging on the cross of pains,
I won't say a word even you can keep on trying and pushing me,
You come or not that's your wish,
I shall keep on waiting for you forever with my eyes gazing at the road.
As long as I shall have water in my eyes my love....(repeat)

I can't ever forget those places,
Where we both used to meet.
While sitting under the shadow of those trees,
I shall keep on mourning for my love.
As long as I shall have water in my eyes my love....(repeat)

As long as I shall have water in my eyes my love,
I shall keep on organizing party of tears.
I shall take it as fate only,
That you would keep on getting angry and I shall keep on trying to console you.
As long as I shall have water in my eyes my love....(repeat)

 

What can I say more to what is already said in the song. If you would watch the video, you would see that the guy is keep on doing one thing or the other to make his girl calm. Even though it wasn’t his fault at all, still since it’s for his love, he is doing whatever he can possibly do which includes standing in the freezing cold weather outside the gal’s home, chasing her all over to talk to her and even getting a beating too, all for just one thing, to make his love smile, make her calm because the pains of seeing your love upset is not expressible in words even. Many times, people ask about logic behind doing certain things, things which are beyond the understanding of many and fail to get defined within the “logics” . But they don’t understand that not everything needs a logic behind it, not everything has to be precisely explained via explanations. At times, some things are not done based on any logics, not for “pushing it” . The are done with just  one and only one thought behind them which is the love for that person for whom they are done. It may sound completely stupid to a logical mind what is being done but from the eyes of a lover, it won’t be a stupid thing but it would be just one of those many things which he thinks he can and should do which would make his beloved smile. It’s not always right to ask and possible to answer that why you are doing this or why you want to do this , at times, its more important to understand this “why” ?  “Why” because there may not be many chances, “why” because that’s what is possible to be done right now and if yes,  then why not, “why” because though he understands everything, he wants to collect something for that upcoming life which is going to be very hard for him in the future and  above all, “why” because “J****”,  he loves you so much! If one would look from the eyes of a lover,there is nothing above than his love and there is nothing beyond his beloved, even though it may sound completely absurd to someone with a logical mind but it won’t be the case for that lover, that’s why! 

I am out of words actually so I shall not say anything more. I leave you with the song and I hope you like it. If anyone wants to make any corrections with the translation, feel free to post it in the comments. I shall edit the section with proper credits given. Enjoy!

Such a beautiful song.

But I have seen relationships that are bad...where you have to ask, does she really-really love HIM? Or is she abusing him?
(not the case in this video)
