Ghazal: Singer Jagjit Singh,Translated by Ranu

Hindi Song

When I saw you ,

I thought life is sunshine,

And you are a thick shadow.

My heart once more expressed its desire,

Once again I told my heart,

Life is sunshine and you are a thick shadow.

If you leave I’ll think,

What did I lose?

What did I gain?

The song I can’t even hum,

Why did time sing such a song?

Life is sunshine,

you are a thick shadow.

Daily Prompt : Descend

In response to daily post’s one-word prompt : Descend

We went for a walk by the lake one afternoon. It was a sunny day, everything looked bright and cheerful. We took some food with us, took out our sheets we carried and placed them on the ground. We sat on the sheet and had a lovely meal.

After an hour we noticed the people were leaving, we felt perhaps we should pack up and do the same. The temperature was steadily going down, the sun didn’t feel warm. ‘It’s time to leave,’ we said to ourselves. We loaded our stuff in the car and prepared to go home. As we were leaving we watched the Sun slowly descending behind the mountains. My daughter took a picture.

After several days of rain the sunshine was a welcome sight. We hoped we’d see a few more days of sun, it’s so rare where we live!

A song: tum ko dekha toh yeh khayal aya posted and translated by Ranu

When I see you my thought tells me,

Life is sunshine , you are thick shadow.

Today my heart has made a wish again,

I explain to my heart yet again.

Life is sunshine, you are thick shadow.

When you leave I will think,

What did I lose , what did I find?

When I see you, my thought tells me,

Life is sunshine, you are thick shadow.

The tune that I find so difficult to hum,

Why did   Time sing that kind of song!
