A Touching Song, Tune Mere Jaana Kabhi Nahin Jaana….

I was going to write about my traveling which would start from tomorrow and couple of other things which did happen today but then, I got a call from a friend who asked me that whether I have heard the above mentioned song? Well, I didn’t apparently. He made me hear the song over his phone and told me a story behind this song. I liked the song so much that I immediately asked him to email me the song which he did and the next step for me was to find that how really well it’s out in the web world. To my amazement, it’s really is a popular song! About the story behind it, I have been reading different versions of it, even this that it’s fake but nevertheless, I would still mention it here. If it turns out to be a rumor, I shall put a note and will edit it in the future. But I do believe that what’s mentioned in the story, it might have happened in real as well. With all due respect to all the girls of this world, I still do believe that what is mentioned in the story, it really might have happened! So the story is this that a guy from Indian Institute of Technology(Guwahati) Rohan Rathore, who was suffering from Cancer, was madly in love with a girl(her name is there on the web but I won’t mention it here), refused to be with him because he was suffering from Cancer. After 15days of recording this song, Rohan died. Now, I have no means to check that it’s a true incident or not but I do believe that it’s possible that the gal might really have left the guy because he was going to die anyways. If you are a gal and you are feeling upset about me saying it, well, trust me, it’s possible that a gal really will do it! Anyways, I did like this song so much. It’s a mix of English and Hindi. I searched for the video of it on Youtube and I found couple of them. I have picked one which had lyrics of it( though I do think that a line or two are incorrectly mentioned and I shall write my understanding of lyrics here). The Hindi portion of the song, I shall translate here. It has a word Jaana which refers to the word Jaan meaning life so Jaana is someone who is dearest like life. I guess, that’s the best part of the song but that’s my humble opinion. Before I put the video, a disclaimer, it’s not made by me and I am not aware about any copyright violations whatsoever, if any, caused by the making of it. If you, the reader, thinks that the video (or even song) is a copyright violation, do let me know by putting it in the comments and I shall see what to do. But by no means, I am related to either in the recording of this song and/or in the making of this video. So with that note, here goes the video,

 

And here goes the lyrics,

Oh love of mine,
With a song and a whine,
You're harsh and divine!
Like truths and a lie!

But the tale's end is not here,
I've nothing to fear,
For my love is yell of giving and hold on.

In the bright emptiness,
In a room full of it,
Is the cruel mistress!

Oh ho ho....

I feel the sunrise,
That nests all hollowness,
For i have to let it go and not come!

And i feel so lonely yeah,
There's a better place from this emptiness!

And i'm so lonely yeah
There's a better place from this emptiness!
Yei yei yei!

Aaa aaa aaa(echo)

Toone mere jaana,
Kabhi nahin jaana,
Ishq mera, dard mera haaye!

Toone mere jaana,
Kabhi nahi jaana,
Ishq mera dard mera!

Aashiq tera,
Bheed mein khoya rehta hai!
Jaane jahaan,
Puchho to itna kehta hai,

And I feel so lonely yeah,
There's a better place from this emptiness!

And I'm so lonely yeah,
There's a better please from this emptiness!

Yei yei yei!

Aaa aaa aaa(echo)

 

I have made the portion which is in Hindi underlined  so here goes the translation of that portion alone in English,

You my beloved,

Never did understand my love, my pain!

You my beloved,

Never did understand my love, my pain!

Your lover,

Is all alone even in the crowd,

Oh beloved,

If someone asks, all just he says!

 

I think that irrespective of the story, the song is just so good, so touching and definitely so sad! And about the story, as I said, I am not sure that’s its true or not but I have seen myself, even when someone is on the bed, at times, people still call him wrong, tell him that he is not good, stubborn forgetting that the most important bit at that moment is to ask how the person is because one may not be able to see it but it’s still possible that the person who is on the bed and is sick, he may be in a lot of pain, definitely physically and may be equally, emotionally!

Hats off to the write, singer, music composer of this song , whoever they are! And if it’s true that the song is by the guy Rohan who is dead now, may god give his soul rest and peace and to that gal whom he loved so madly, a heart!

Very nicely concluded. I agree with you there. And yes, this song is... well ... a real GEM! Thanks for the writeup and I secretly hope one day we find out the mystery behind this one.
