noddzy. That one's from a movie called Namaste London iirc.

Reg. the translated lyrics, I like them as well. It's a hobby of mine to translate songs from both Hindi and Telugu into English though I have no poetic pedigree whatsoever. That hasn't stopped me though


And you can call me Hema

Did you translate them yourself ? Wow ! That's pretty awesome Though this gives more ammunition to your detractors on MTF- we might have have visitors in this thread who speak ill of your exercises in poetic translation

I did But don't look again. They rapidly degenerate upon second, third glances. As for my detractors, they are welcome. I live to be ridiculed, anyway

Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan is an absolute genius. Thanks for reminding me after all these years!!





As a whole album anything from Taare Zameen Par is excellent.

You'r welcome Let me guess- you are a Fed fan ? Loved taare zameen par and all the songs in it too. Here's the title song with translated lyrics to give Hema some competition

Midnight Ninja, good songs. Hadn't heard the second one( Like the female version of Iktara better though). Like the Strings song as well. Heard about them but never paid much attention.

Great choice of words in that translation. I approve and concede defeat

Seriously though, line by line translation is doable with a little effort but to put it all together so it can stand alone in English is really tough

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 (? )

Or maybe hide recipes in the translations ?

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

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.

Good stuff. My only gripe is the incongruence between some of the distinctively western portraits and the song itself. So much of creative talent on the web !

Yes, it isn't always a great fit but I suspect it's really hard to find the appropriate images(unless you paint them yourself) all 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
