This is a song from a Bollywood, Hindi movie, in the movie Dev Anand does the lip-synching. He was an actor who appeared in countless movies. The words or lyrics of the song tells the story of Dev Anand’s life. A few days ago I heard this song after a long time. I liked the lyrics so much, I thought it probably tells us to be prepared for anything in life, happiness and sadness are a part of life.
The following is my translation of the song:
I went along with life performing whatever I faced
I blew my fears away like a puff of smoke,
I realized it was useless to feel sorry for disappointments,
I treated my sorrows as a festival, and laughed it off.
I blew my fears away like a puff of smoke.
Whatever I got from life I acknowledged it as my fate.
I blocked my mind from remembering , whatever I lost.
I took my heart to a place,
Where there was no difference between sorrow and happiness!
