Ek Akela Is Shahar Mein Raat Mein Aur Dopahar Mein
Aabodaana Dhoondta Hai Aashiyana Dhoondta Hai

In Umar Se Lambi Sadkon Ko Manzil Pe Pohonchte Dekha Nahin
Bas Daudti Phirti Rahti Hain Humne To Theherte Dekha Nahin
Is Ajnabi Se Shahar Mein Jaana Pehechana Dhoondta Hai
Ek Akela Is Shahar Mein…

:::: very difficult to translate::::: :(

One lonely man in this town, in the night and afternoon

Searches for water and food (a livelihood) and a home

Never see these roads that are longer than age

Ever reach a destination

Just running and winding everywhere but I've never seen them stop anywhere

In this town of strangers searches for a familiar

One lonely man in this town...

Sahir Ludhianvi - Lyricist

Main Zindagii Kaa Saath Nibhaataa Chalaa Gayaa

Har Fikr Ko Dhuen Mein Udaataa Chalaa Gayaa

Barabaadiyon Kaa Sog Manaanaa Fizuul Thaa
Barabaadiyon Kaa Jashn Manaataa Chalaa Gayaa
Main Zindagii...

Gam Aur Khushii Mein Fark Na Mahasuus Ho Jahaan
Main Dil Ko Us Muqaam Pe Laataa Chalaa Gayaa
Main Zindagii...

i went on partnering with life

i have gone on blowing up my worries in smoke

it was futile to mourn failures/destruction

i have gone on celebrating them

where i can't feel the difference between happiness and sadness

I have gone on taking my heart to that destination

The Desiderata of Happiness

Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs;
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy.
