Bebasi Dard Ka Aalam - Baabul
bebasi dard kaa aalam, tum mujhe de do apne ghum
give me all your troubles, your helplessness, your pain
... khaamoshiyaan bhi do, tanhaaiyaan bhi do
give me your silences, your loneliness too
bechaaniyaa bhi de do, de do naa
why don’t you give me your uneasiness/restlessness also?
bhigi palkon se churaa lungaa nami
I’ll steal the moistness from your eyes (your tears)
rehane dungaa naa, khahin koi kami
I won’t let you lack for anything
tumko daaman naa bhigone dungaa
I won’t let your skirts get drenched
ab kabhi tumko naa rone dungaa
I’ll never let you cry
uljhane ghum ki parchhaiye
your troubles and sorrows, (give them to me)
de do mujhe apni tanhaaiyaan
give me your loneliness
gumnamiyaan bhi do, naakaamiyaan bhi do
give me your anonymity, your non-successes (failures)
viraaniyaan bhi de do, de do naa
give me your desolation please
tere hotho pe sajaa dungaa hansi
I’ll adorn your lips with happiness
teri raahon mein bhichhaa dungaa khushi
I’ll fill your path with joy
tum mujhe apnaa maanti ho agar
if you think of me as yours
yu khafaa hoke naa jhukaao nazar
don’t lower your gaze in anger
mushkile apni majburi
your troubles, your hopelessness ( they will be mine )
ho de do mujhe sari benuri
give me your lacklustreness
pareshaaniyaaa bhi do, hairaaniyaa bhi do
your anxieties, your worries
nhigebaaniyaa bhi de do, de do naa
give me your wardship (let me protect you)
This song speaks to me on so many levels.
I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do.
If you ever get a chance to see the movie do so you won't be disappointed. It is in Hindi so be sure to get a copy that has english subtitles.
To set the scene for you: This man is friends with a women, have been best friends for many many years.
He was in love with her but, she was in love with someone else.
They married and shortly after the birth of thir first child her husband was killed in car accident.
Her father in law eventualy decided to break convention and set her best friend up to wooing her aginst her will. She was happy to live the life of a proper widow feeling that she could never love anyone ever again.
So her FIL takes her to the theater, where her friend is preforming that night. (He is a singer) He is singing this song on stage to her in front of the world. Slowly she comes to realize this and the reaction she has to it is very strong.
