- Thank the person who nominated you.
- Post one quote (song lyric) each day for three days.
- 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.
Its kind of a prayer song from the Bollywood movie Dhoom 3. Its about faith in the Almighty, hope and confidence.
There’s another memory attached to this song which makes the lyrics special.
I had participated in a group singing competition along with my friends in school (in 2015, I guess) We had practised a song but a day before the competition, unfortunately, our lead singer caught a severe cold and couldn’t sing…!!!! We’re tensed and didn’t know what to do!!! My friends suggested that I should take the lead but I wasn’t prepared. We had lost all hope when suddenly, I heard this song on the television on a music channel.
It gave us hope and finally, we changed the plan and chose this song, practised all night and presented it the next day. Here’s the audio recording of our performance, do listen to it!!
And yes, here’s the lyrics which gave us hope:
Bande hai hum uske,
Hum pe kiska jor,
Umeedo k suraj,
Nikale Charo aur,
Iraade hai fauladi,
Himmati har kadam,
Apne hathon kismat likhne,
Aaj chale hai hum….
Its said that reading a poem in translation is like kissing a girl through the veil. But still here’s the English translation of the lyrics for those who don’t understand Hindi:
We are the creations of the Almighty,
No one can hurt us (because he is watching us from above)
There is the sunshine of hope,
Spread in every direction,
We are determined and our intentions are strong,
Our steps are courageous,
We are ready today and we are heading towards,
Writing our destiny with our own hands…
We secured the Runners Up prize but for us, it was no less than the winner’s trophy because it was not just one night’s practice but it was the enthusiasm and hope in all our hearts which gave fire to our performance! 🙂
At last I would conclude saying that “Never lose hope”. 🙂
Thanks for reading!!
