"AaJ JaAne Ki Zid Na KaRO "- Guitar version

Sunday usually is a soulful day, where MOMENTS (hmmm.. I decide NOT to dramatise them ) touch me in the form of music and songs. And there I was .... I found myself browsing through the lyrics and U tube of the song 'Aaj Jaane Ki Zid Na Karo ' a song sung by Pakistani singer ' Farida Khanum.
I came across an interesting u tube, where a girl tries her hands with this song on a guitar, Pls pardon her sense of the singer as she passes it off to Begum Akhtar :P.
I m also adding the original version here, as it is where MY HEART trully lies :)....Also, an English Lyric translation for my 'Angrez' Cousins and Friends, help them feel the depth of the song!( Pls retain some patience as the video downloads)
Enjoy!!!...

Aaj jaane ki zid na karo
Yunhi pehloo mein baithe raho
Aaj jaane ki zid na karo
Hai mar jaayenge, hum to lut jaayenge
Aisi baatein kiya na karo
Aaj jaane ki zid na karo

Tum hi socho zara, kyun na roke tumhe
Jaan jaati hai jab uth ke jaate ho tum
Tumko apni qasam jaan-e-jaan
Baat itni meri maan lo
Aaj jaane ki zid na karo
Yunhi pehloo mein baithe raho
Aaj jaane ki zid na karo

Waqt ki qaid mein zindagi hai magar
Chand ghadiyan yehi hain jo aazad hain
Inko khokar mere jaan-e-jaan
Umr bhar na taraste raho
Aaj jaane ki zid na karo

Kitna maasoom rangeen hai yeh sama
Husn aur ishq ki aaj mein raaj hai
Kal ki kisko khabar jaan-e-jaan
Rok lo aaj ki raat ko
Aaj jaane ki zid na karo
Yunhi pehloo mein baithe raho
Aaj jaane ki zid na karo


Translation-

Don't insist on leaving today
Keep sitting beside me.
Don't insist on leaving today
else I shall die, I shall be looted.
Please don't talk like this.
Don't insist on leaving today.

Give it a thought,
why shouldn't stop you?
When you leave,
life goes out of me.
For your own sake, beloved
Just listen to this one plea,
don't insist on leaving today,
keep sitting beside me.
Don't insist on leaving today.

My life is trapped in time's bars,
just a few solitary moments are free.
And if you lose them too, my beloved,
you shall keep craving forever.
Don't insist on leaving today,
keep sitting beside me.
Don't insist on leaving today.

What an innocent hueful meeting this is
of beauty and love, they rule today.
Who knows what lies in tomorrow,
Let's make this night stand still.
Don't insist on leaving today,
keep sitting beside me.
Don't insist on leaving today.

CoMfOrTabLy NuMb


Yes, I've been in my comfort zone lately ...actually, I thought I talked too much, and was way too vocal of every emotion that I felt. I decided to stay quiet untill I came across something which suggested 'The Power of EMOTIONS'. And to my rescue, the matter said that people who do not voice their emotions, who rather escape and do not witness how they feel to the fullest are emotionally NUMB!
"Thank God, I told myself, someone understands how I feel! " And who wants to be NUMB ?..Nah, not me! And there I start to Yap..to the universe :)
I know I m ONLY thirty! ( oops, yes i said 'ONLY' )but thats how I FEEL EMOTIONALLY:!And I 've come to believe that the ones that are emotionally expressive
are the ones who do live life to the fullest! My BEST friend Jini says so rightly '" ONE LIFE,AV "!! Ok, all I m trying is, to suggest that its not such a bad thing to EXPRESS, infact why pent up ? How much does it take to Feel,Acknowledge, and Release the triggers? The only risk factor is that the Angry emotions will Break a Head or TWO :p! But the Happy ones will bring more happiness ,smiles ,and more LOVE! ..Worth it, right?
Hence, I hereby decide and call upon ALL who resonate with me ...that lets shake ourselves and Not stay COMFORTABLY NUMB! EXPRESS..EXPRESS ...EXPRESS ....:)
Hope u've covered health insurance though :))!!

Here is a song for those who are..comfortably numb!
