Lyrics Challenge – 3 days Quotes Challenge – Day 3

Big thanks to A.J. of Tokens of Expression for nominating me for this challenge. Thanks for the recognition I really enjoyed this challenge ❀ check out her blog here


Rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Post one quote (song lyric) each day for three days.
  3. Nominate three people.

When you ask me to post a song lyric, its obviously much more than just a quote and honestly, there are so many beautiful songs with such heart warming and meaningful lyrics that its almost next to impossible to choose just one….

But I am sharing with all of you here, one of my personal favourite song lyrics.

Give me some sunshine,

Give me some rain,

Give me another chance,

I wanna grow up once again………..

Bachpan to gaya,

Jawani bhi gayi,

Ek pal to ab hame,

Jeene do, jeene do…..

Saari umra hum,

Mar mar k jee liye,

Ek pal to ab hume,

Jeene do, jeene do….!!!!!


Translation of the second paragraph:

My childhood days are over,

My youth has gone away,

Let me have peace for a moment at least,

Let me LIVE my life now…

All my life, through all my ages,

I have Survived and not Lived,

Now give me a moment to rest and enjoy,

Let me really LIVE my life now…..!!!!


This song is from the Bollywood movie 3 Idiots.

Its a wonderful movie and conveys a deep message through it’s songs’ lyrics…. It beckons the students not to run after marks but to run after knowledge. Life is not about mugging up answers and securing high grades in exams, it’s not about materialistic success, its about your quest for knowledge, your understanding of practical things, your contribution towards society and most importantly, life is about LIVING it, about enjoying it to the fullest and about doing things which give you happiness and satisfaction!!!

In this song, it is said that all our life we are working tirelessly, running in a race to clear competitions. From our childhood we are taught to strive for good marks, then admission in a good university / college, then strive for a good job (with high salary) better future, status in society, name, fame, money and what not!!!!!!! The list goes on and we keep striving till our last breath….

But, the minute we die, nothing remains!! What is left is our memories, our good name, and the happiness and satisfaction we achieve while LIVING life…!!! πŸ™‚ Hence, we are asked to take out time for ourselves, to rest, to enjoy and to LIVE!!!! πŸ™‚

Thanks for reading πŸ™‚

My nominees:

  • Pia Majumdar of Finally Unchained
  • Abhi
  • Jhavinder of Fun And Factz 4 U
  • Pavan Athreyas

Have a nice day πŸ™‚
