There isn't one and seeing that the South Asian population is pretty small on the forum, I am not surprised.

Well, here we go. Just post any South Asian music ranging from Urdu, Hindi, Punjabi, sinhala, tamil, Bengali etc.

And if you don't understand at all what the songs are supposed to mean, then just relax back and listen to the wonder of the tunes.

Seriously, even if you don't know what the heck is being spoken, the tunes will still make you want to listen.

Also you will get that 1 in a 100 poster who will click on this thread, listen to a few songs and become hooked without even understanding what the heck is being said and be dependent on translations which do not accurately depict the beautiful words :p.

Rough translation:

Wherever I am
No matter where that be
your memory keeps company

Whether I reveal
or keep my lips sealed
about what's inside me

Though,it appears
that the world walks with me
but secretly
loneliness festers inside me
and yet your memory keeps me company

Somewhere a stake of memories
gets driven inside
Elsewhere every picture
turns into mist

Some find happiness
in every color the world offers
Some are offered everything
and yet keep longing

Somewhere the roots of the past
dig deep inside
Elsewhere following a broken string
the beads scatter effortlessly.

Some find space
for every news the world offers
Some carry the lamps of the past
forever beneath their eyelashes

Nice songs Hema ( do you prefer the MTF nick or the real name ? :D) Is this a movie song or from an album ? I actually like the translated lyrics- they add a different dimension to the song, almost akin to a different door (kitchen?) opening when presented along with the original song.

That was not my translation btw :) Yeah, it is much harder to make the lines come together into a coherent unit. You should put all your translations in this thread, and maybe sell them to a budding bollywood lyricist (who is also a tennis fan) later on, using your supposed bollywood connections (? ) :angel:

Or maybe hide recipes in the translations ? ;)

Your (excellent) suggestions make it seem like you are a budding bollywood scriptwriter:p. Probably the only connection I'll need:D

Anyway, there's this guy called hyderbadee on youtube,who collects paintings/pics to match the meaning of songs. Does an excellent job. Should check out some of his videos if you have the time.

Wanders the child garden to garden
Chasing the buttefly that eludes him
Little does the innocent know
That which he seeks
to be found
Can only be found within.

Restless eyes that behold dreams
find no rest and no peace
Restless eyes that behold dreams
find no rest and no peace

One that walks this path
Only finds path after path
the way is scorching, his feet burn
no shade found at any turn
On and on he marches on
with none to make him understand

From afar, water it appears to be
is it a mirage? who does really know?
Different as the day from night
is peace from happiness
But the eyes that see
possess a different sight
Peace comes from within
and happiness without

Imo, Indian classical is designed for the pleasure of the singer/performer and (somewhat) neglects to cater to the listener. Huge disconnect because of that:lol:

Traditionally girls were taught and practiced these dances at a really young age (kinda like with Tennis) since it takes years to master even the basics. Nowadays there are professional tutors in India and a few other South Asian countries who could give you a crash course if you can find them

It does look really really complex, even the simplest forms strike me as very multilayered, I figured as much. (about the 10+ years of studying) I was just curious whether or not it would even be possible to get some really basic lessons to understand it better, as much as you could pack into 10, 15 lessons.

I found a good translation for you:p

It is said that this is a celebration of spring
but love is distressed to see
that in the garden, the fragrance is shying away from the flowers.
There is a hidden sorrow in the curtain of the happy air.

The slow sleepy flow of time has
silenced much of the sorrow here
and many unsaid things are lost in the heart.

How does one say what troubles them so.
I wonder this now
how does one actually tell you that they are not in love with you?
We journey through life together,
but there exists a distance between us
like that of the two banks of a river that never meet.

We are together, yet we are not.
This pain of separation is unacceptable to me.
There is, as it were, a wall of glass divides us.

The slow sleepy flow of time has
quietened much of the sorrow here
and many unsaid things are lost in the heart.

The tune that I thought I would hear
was the song that my heart chose.
But what is this tune that fate has chosen for me to hear instead?

If it can be said that I am sad,
truth is she is not happy there either.
It is as if our encounters are blended with loneliness.

We meet but we do not unite
The flower blooms but doesn’t blossom.
When I look around I see that it is spring but there is an autumn in my heart.

I figured it was going that way. :lol: But wow was he creepy. :rolls:

Like sham said, it is taught everywhere in India(and any other country with large Indian populations) but in general, it is not taught for a month(unless it is just for fun). It is usually more like ballet(years and years of practice).I had it figured as some sort of religion-centred traditional ballet-level dance. I'm quite aware I wouldn't exactly be hired for the Indian Traditional Dance equivalent of Swan Queen after a month of lessons :lol: :p. Just enough to make you an educated spectator, I would assume.
Though I figure it would probably take upward of 8 months just to get the hand gestures right! :o

To me, it sounds like some weird mix of guitar and cello.Sort of, now that you mention it.

golden oldies (not the poster) ;) Love this song- this one is originally from a Bengali movie called Deep Jele Jai. Strangely enough the lyrics are very different from the Hindi version. Those were considered the heydays of Bengali cinema. Have you watched any Satyajit Ray movies btw ?

You are right, this was a very sad/depressing movie (remember watching it as a kid). Nice @ Ray movies. He has a series of detective movies (the protagonist's name is Feluda) which are a favorite of mine.

Wow, did you just call the exalted French cuisine "horrible" ? The French would crucify you for that :lol: (I do understand though, coming from India, we like our meat curried and cooked :yeah: )

What about u Tennizen, A Bengali in Mauritius ?

:lol: That sounds really exotic. You should move to Mauritius Hema ;) Shinoj, are you a Hyderabadi too ? (I'm the bengali btw)

^^ I was just thinking of this song:worship: Pretty much every Indian guy born in the late 70s/80s was of the same opinion:lol:

But she once was invited to judge Indian Idol and I found her extremely difficult to tolerate:o

Why did she stop acting suddenly - was it marriage and subsequent "settling down" ? And why was she irritating as a judge ? I was watching Indian Idol about 2 years back @ home, and there was a major fight going on between judges Anu malik and Bappi Lahiri - it was hilarious !

Since ashi was posting some olden goldies, here is one which has always been one of my favorites- all the songs from this movie were so melodious ! Always liked Amol Palekar's movies somehow- very understated acting..

I had seen a lot of Hyderabadi movies. And i tell you they are hilarious to the core. Frankly speaking they are up amongst the most hilarious genres all over the world. The actors are totally natural, stories are quite simple. I enjoyed a lot.

Actually the one you mentioned Angrez i didnt find it that funny. Much funnier are Family Pack,Berozgaar and Half Fry. Do watch them if you can.

Actually i like Singham type of movies IF IT IS WELL MADE. One man taking on an Entire army. On a similar note
i liked Satya,Ghayal,Shool,Dum with Vivek Oberoi


I agree. Just need to watch with a different mindset. I haven't seen Shool and Dum. I liked Ab Tak Chappan a lot and I thought Seher(Arshad Warsi) was a very underrated cop movie.

Rustic movies: Ishqiya was pretty good. Vishal Bharadwaj did a great job with Omkara, of course.

Pretty much the whole Rockstar album by A R Rahman is excellent, imo.
And this coming after the overrated slumdog millionaire soundtrack.

I need to listen to this but somehow I cannot get around to it.

I don't think she was going anywhere with her career. Probably what you said as well:lol: Reg. the judging on Indian Idol, she wasn't knowledgeable at all and was very prejudiced against some contestants:lol:

I think he was able to modernize the original Devdas plot which has been beaten to death by the Bollywood crew. I thought the first half was pretty decent but that director tends towards self-indulgence a lot and the whole descent of that guy was dragged on and on.

My translation for the Chod aaye hum song:

We have left those streets behind...

where your feet, lotus-like, used to tread
like whirlpools deep, dimples your smile etched
curves of your waist tracing a river's path
sound of your laughter, the magic that ripened crops

we have left those streets behind...

where once, under your heels sunshine sprung
I hear now, at that doorstep, is darkness strung
a night ,entangled in your tresses, existed then
sometimes in my sleep, I meet it again.


my heart now a mass of pain, made from stone
a bottomless well, a dead-end alley
a tiny moment without end, it drags on
burn as I might, the ash never forms

Found line-by-line translated lyrics on a website

The quicksand of night is thick and viscous;
how can the vehicle of my heartbeats proceed?

All the directions quake with fear,
as though something is about to be lost.
The very winds have stopped breathing;
who knows what must happen now?
Death lurks behind every bush.

In the heart's courtyard
stretch the shadows of fear.
The darkness is sobbing
so that anyone who hears it must shiver.
The pulse, the pulse of time has drowned.

Also, the bhajan at the end of the movie-many variations available but the Gandhi movie one is still one of the best

I meant in general, of course. There are always exceptions. Older songs have better lyrics on an average but there are some nice new ones as well. The songs from Gamyam have some of the most meaningful lyrics I have heard in recent times.

you are coming up with soem nice translations.....i will post that old hindi song and hope you do the english lyrics for it as well.....Do post. I'll try my best:o

I'll also post some old telugu songs that have good lyrics sometime later.

Well, I tried :lol: Here it is...

A lone darkness; a million stars
A lone sorrow; a million props
life is the greatest gift
simply naive to feel lost

Such is life's garden
as many flowers as thorns
eagerly waiting to fall, only
need to stretch your hands

For yesterday long gone
forsake not tomorrow to come
someone might come forward to
redecorate your paths again

For one who knows not sorrow
what comfort, what happiness
only for having storms fought
is the tranquil shore sought

Great poem by Rabindranath Tagore. I really liked the Rehman song-- hadn't heard it before. The English translation of the poem courtesy Wikipedia (I should change the "thous and thees" to a more modern version, but too lazy to do it :) )

If they answer not to thy call walk alone,
If they are afraid and cower mutely facing the wall,
O thou unlucky one,
open thy mind and speak out alone.
If they turn away, and desert you when crossing the wilderness,
O thou unlucky one,
trample the thorns under thy tread,
and along the blood-lined track travel alone.
If they do not hold up the light when the night is troubled with storm,
O thou unlucky one,
with the thunder flame of pain ignite thy own heart
and let it burn alon
