Whenever I travel, whenever I am in the middle of nowhere and whenever I need some time alone…this Hindi song has stayed with me. It is from a very old Hindi movie starring a legendary actor, Dev Anand, my secret crush.
Main zindagi ka saath nibhata chala gaya
Har fikr ko dhuein mein udata chala gaya
Barbadiyon ka soz manana fizool tha
Barbadiyon ka jashn manata chala gaya
Jo mil gaya usi ko muqaddar samajh liya
Jo kho gaya main usko bhulata chala gaya
Gham aur khushi mein fark na mehsoos ho jahaan
Main dil ko us makaam pe lata chala gaya
I just kept going with the life,
Kept on flowing every worry like smoke.
it was useless to be sad for the runings (of life, the things I lost)
(so) I kept on celebrating the runinings..
Whatever I got, I considered that as my fate,
whatever I lost, I kept going, forgetting it..
Where there is no difference felt in sorrow and joy,
I kept myself bringing to that point.
Sometimes I just feel like singing this song with a cigar on one hand and a glass of wine on the other hand. I want time to stay still and let me swim in its ocean. Dance slowly in the middle of the night without any stares to judge.
Mohit and I wanted to enjoy the desert rain so we went out on a short drive and captured few moments of our life. This song was at the backdrop and nature was acting as a cigar and a glass of wine. Let me share with you some part of my divine drive.
