Bollywood Song; Duniya badal rahi hai,posted and translated by ranu

World is changing ,

do not waste time shedding tears.

Let your eye-lashes cover your tears.

My heart wants you to

transform your tears into flame

wash the scars of your heart

with rays of hope.

In this dark storm of sorrow,

light up the lamp of your mind.

Get rid of pessimism,

look forward to your morning

with hope.

It’s difficult to check my emotions,

when I watch your face.

erase the memory of your

ruined life,

change it into something positive,

O my friend,

it’s no use shedding tears!

……………………………………. 😦

 

Song, singer Lata, posted and translated by Ranu

Oh my poor grieving heart, be not afraid of sorrow

One day this heartless world will understand your story

In your hopeful heart, make some space for your wounds

Move on even if your friends add fuel to your burning heart

Do not worry if your life becomes a sad story

You can achieve nothing by complaining

It’s useless to cry, your own can become strangers in a moment

Oh my grieving heart, be not afraid of sorrow!

This is a  love story of a prince and a court dancer. They were unaware of the fact that such a match would never be approved by the king. The king threatened the young woman, but his son continued with the love affair. Finally the king took some drastic steps.

The young woman sings the song below to let her lover, the prince, know how she feels about the whole affair.

The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar, one of the best playback singers of Bollywood. Keeping in mind it is not easy to translate into English a foreign language. I have tried to explain what the words  mean in English.

I wish I hadn’t fallen in love with you,

And hoped that our story wasn’t a reality

Had I not professed my love for you

I wouldn’t have faced the criticism of our world

I went too far with my love

I was only aware when it was disapproved by all

I wouldn’t have been surprized had I died

It would have been an act of kindness on your part,

If you could put an end to this affair

I would then have had no objection against the people!
