Magic in Tunes: 03/16/2015 – Zindagi Ka Safar Hai Ye Kaisa Safar

Life is funny sometimes…one day it gives sun and another day it pours gloom. And the gloomy got gloomier. May the life’s truths bring some warmth soon. Here is a song reflecting my sentiments.

From the 1970 hit Hindi film Safar ( = Journey) Sung by the legendery Kishore Kumar. Music composed by Kalyanji Anandji to the Lyrics penned by Indeevar. The words in each line of the song is indeed unexplainable to its accurate meaning just like one if the line says “Koi Samjha Nahin Koi Jaana Nahin” ( = None understood, No one figured it).




Lyrics in Romanized Hindi / Urdu:

Zindagi Ka Safar Hai Ye Kaisa Safar, Koi Samjha Nahin Koi Jaana Nahin
Hai Ye Kaisi Dagar Chalte Hain Sab Magar, Koi Samjha Nahin Koi Jaana Nahin

Zindagi Ko Bahut Pyaar Hamne Diya, Maut Se Bhi Mohabbat Nibhaaenge Ham
Rote Rote Zamaane Mein Aaye Magar, Hanste Hanste Zamaane Se Jaaenge Hum
Jaaenge Par Kidhar Hai Kise Ye Khabar, Koi Samjha Nahin Koi Jaana Nahin

Aise Jeevan Bhi Hain Jo Jiye Bhi Nahin, Jinko Jeene Se Pehle Hi Maut Aa Gayi
Phool Aise Bhi Hain Jo Khile Hi Nahin, Jinko Khilne Se Pehle Khizan Aa Gai
Hai Pareshaan Nazar Thak Gaye Chaaraagar, Koi Samjha Nahin Koi Jaana Nahin

Zindagi Ka Safar Hai Ye Kaisa Safar, Koi Samjha Nahin Koi Jaana Nahin

Magic In Tunes: 03/17/2015 – Happy St. Patrick’s Day

First time I was introduced to this festival was in Chicago when I got to see the entire Chicago River dyed green for the festival. Had never seen that anywhere before and was simply charmed by it. I also never liked the color green until that day. Unfortunately had lost the pics from that day when my external drive crashed one day. Anyways, one of the song caught my ear that day, titled “Whiskey in the Jar”. So here’s wishing everyone a Happy St. Patrick’s Day and hoping everyone had a beautiful “Green” day. :P From the 1968 singles by The Dubliners, a signature song for Irish.
