Hindi song: Mais zindagi ka saath nibhata chala gaya, posted and translated by Ranu

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!

  2. In the original, the rhythm and rhyme of the song are so fetching. Though in translation, this is still a beautiful line: “I treated my sorrows as a festival, . . .” Thank you!
