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.

:haha:. Well I know a few other south Asians on the board too. Let's hope they can hop onto this thread too :angel:

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.

Used to love the bearded dude. Dances like a king.

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

Rough translation:
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.

:wavey: 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:lol:


And you can call me Hema:D

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 :D

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