Hindi song from a movie, singer Muhammad Rafi, posted and translated by Ranu

Oh heart it’s difficult to survive here,

Move and take care of yourself

It is Bombay my dear!

……………………………………….:)

Here in this city every thing from trams to cars

to mills are available

Sadly you won’t find love!

…………………………….

There is no trace of humans

Truth doesn’t exist here

What exists is  robbery, tears, and starvation!

…………………………………….

Poor have no value here

they are rejected and kicked

The unemployed are given a lot of names!

…………………………..

They smile and call the  homeless vagabonds

The powerful cut the throats of the  innocent

And claim it’s business!

……………………………

One thing has many names

It is hard to survive here

It’s Bombay my dear!

…………………………..

The woman tells  the man

You call it an evil world?

Try not to be innocent!

……………………………..

You reap what you sow

Do not try to be what you’re not

It won’t work here

This is Bombay, this is  Bombay my dear!

……………………………………….

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for sharing this song with the translated lyrics.

    “There is no trace of humans” is one of the lines which is so powerful.

    All good wishes,

    robert
