Pichla | Agla

Today was the most frustrating day at work. It ended though with some solutions to reduce my frustration. And coming home I was greeted by a friend who made my evening even better. Reminded me of this less famous, rather played, song from the 1993 hit Hindi film 1942 A Love Story. Song was sung by Shivaji Chattopadhyay, Music composed by R. D. Burman and Lyrics penned by Javed Akhtar. A song that tells that even though the journey is tough, never lose heart and hope.

A few tidbits on the song:

1) This film was the released after R. D. Burman had passed away and happened to be his last work.
2) It gave recognition to Manisha Koirala and put her on the map.
3) The film won nine Filmfare Awards including Best Music Director awarded posthumously to R. D. Burman.
4) It had great numbers like “Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Tho”, “Rooth Na Jaana”, “Pyar Hua Chupke Se” and others. But this was the less famed song.
5) Singer Shivaji is a Bengali singer. I don’t remember any of his Hindi songs other than this.

6) Lyrics in Romanized Hindi / Urdu:

Dil Na Ummeed To Nahi, Nakaam Hi To Hai
Lambi Hai Gham Ki Sham, Magar Shaam Hi To Hai

Yeh Safar Bahut Hai Kathin Magar, Na Udaas Ho Mere Hamsafar
Yeh Safar Bahut Hai Kathin Magar, Na Udaas Ho Mere Hamsafar
Na Udaas Ho Mere Hamsafar

Nahi Rehane Wali Ye Mushkilein, Yeh Hain Agle Mod Pe Manzilein
Nahi Rehane Wali Ye Mushkilein, Yeh Hain Agle Mod Pe Manzilein
Meri Baat Ka Tu Yakeen Kar
Meri Baat Ka Tu Yakeen Kar, Na Udaas Ho Mere Hamsafar
Yeh Safar Bahut Hai Kathin Magar, Na Udaas Ho Mere Hamsafar

Kabhi Dhundh Lega Yeh Kaarvan, Woh Nayi Zameen Naya Aasmaan
Kabhi Dhundh Lega Yeh Kaarvan, Woh Nayi Zameen Naya Aasmaan
Jise Dhoondhati Hai Teri Nazar
Jise Dhoondhati Hai Teri Nazar, Na Udaas Ho Mere Hamsafar
Yeh Safar Bahut Hai Kathin Magar, Na Udaas Ho Mere Hamsafar
Yeh Safar Bahut Hai Kathin Magar, Na Udaas Ho Mere Hamsafar
Na Udaas Ho Mere Hamsafar

7) Translation of the Lyrics by someone on internet:

Don't Let Your Heart Despair; To Do So Is Utterly Useless
Grief's Evening Is Long, But It Is Only An Evening.

This Journey Is Exceedingly Hard But, Don't Despair, My Fellow Traveler
This Journey Is Exceedingly Hard But, Don't Despair, My Fellow Traveler
Don't Despair, My Fellow Traveler.

These Difficulties Shall Not Always Be With Us, These Are The Goals For The Next Turn In The Road.
These Difficulties Shall Not Always Be With Us, These Are The Goals For The Next Turn In The Road.
Believe What I Say
Believe What I Say, Do Not Despair, My Fellow Traveler...
This Journey Is Exceedingly Hard But, Don't Despair, My Fellow Traveler

Some Day This Caravan Shall Find, That New Land, That New Sky
Some Day This Caravan Shall Find, That New Land, That New Sky
For Which Your Gaze Searches
For Which Your Gaze Searches, Do Not Despair, My Fellow Traveler.
This Journey Is Exceedingly Hard But, Don't Despair, My Fellow Traveler
This Journey Is Exceedingly Hard But, Don't Despair, My Fellow Traveler
Don't Despair, My Fellow Traveler
