Aur teraa Thukaraa ke sar vo muskuraanaa yaad hai

Jab sivaa mere tumhaaraa koii diivaanaa na thaa
when you had no other suitor but me

Sach kaho kyaa tum ko bhii vo kaarKhaanaa yaad hai
Tell me truly, do you remember such a time?

Ghair kii nazaron se bachakar sab kii marzii ke Khilaaf
Hiding from others eyes, and against their wishes

Vo teraa chorii chhipe raaton ko aanaa yaad hai
I remember you would secretly come to me at night

Dekhanaa mujhako jo bargashtaa to sau sau naaz se
when you saw me turned against you, with much gentleness...

Jab manaa lenaa to phir khud ruuth jaanaa yaad hai
you would cajole me, then you yourself would become cool toward me

Chori chori ham se tum aa kar mile the jis jagah
That place where where I came to meet you secretly

Muddatein guzariin par ab tak wo thikaanaa yaad hai
I remember it still, though many years have passed

Chupake Chupake Raat Din Aansuu Bahanaa Yaad Hai
I remember shedding tears secretly day and night

Ham ko ab tak aashiqii kaa vo zamaanaa yaad hai
I still remember the days of our love

  3. If you read into the ghazal properly you will realise the Poet is describing a lovemaking scene that occured between them once and he still remembers it. Maulana Hasrat Mohani is being implicit and clever. Genius writing. Picture the man and woman reacting as described in the language and you'll come to know that it indeed is a detailed account of intense ardour. Thank me later ;)

  4. Translation of poetry is always a difficult task, especially the Urdu poetry because it is so rich with subtle expressions. But here, I give to you, you have been doing an excellent job. Please don't stop adding more posts.

  10. Dear translator,
    Thank you very much indeed!
    I am Arab and I have been listening to this beautiful song for decades; I have always felt it considering that music is a human language and heritage that can be easily felt despite the language barriers. For instance, although I do not have the knowledge of Chinese, Amharic, and Malayalam languages, I often listen to the nations’ beautiful music and feel it deeply in my essence.

  11. I have been listening to the song for many years without knowing the meaning at all. I only felt that it was a pathetic one resembling someone who lost his beloved for some wrong deed. It is you who has made me understand the song with ease. Thank you very much for your effort. Thank you once again.
