As far as I last remember there had been no other song that had caused a certain impact on my senses with respect to faith, the one that had been caused by this one! A lyrical masterpiece in fact! From the OST that I admired a lot,from the movie that disappointed me a lot “Delhi 6”, comes this track “Ariyan”. Feat the voices of javed ali, and kailesh khair in their sufiyana best on the melody of double oscar winner A.R.Rahman! The credit for the immensely meaningful lyrics goes to Prasoon Joshi . These goes like this...
Arziyaan Sari Mein, Chehre Pe Likh Ke Laaya Hoon
(All the requests, are written on my face)
Tumse Kya Mangu Mein, Tum Khud Hi Samjah Lo...
(What can I ask from you, you yourself should understand)
Ya Maula..., Maula Maula Maula Mere Maula
(Yes Lord... My Lord)
(Maula Maula Maula Mere Maula)
Dararein Dararein Bandhein Pe Maula
(Obstacles, Obstacles on my shoulders, O lord)
Maramat Mukdar Ki Kar Do Maula, Mere Maula..
(Take a control of fate/ fortune, my Lord)
Tere Dar Pe Jhuka Hoon Meeta Hoon Bana Hoon
(Am bowing at your feet, have fallen, and recovered)
Marammat Mukdar Ki Kar Doo Maula..
(Improve my fortune/destiny, O Lord)
Jo Bhi Tere Dar Aaya, Juhkne Jo Sar Aaya
(Whoever has come to you, has come to bow at your feet)
Mastiyan Piye Sabko, Jhoomta Nazar Aaya
drunk with fun were seen dancing to everyone
Pyaas Le Ke Aaya Tha, Dariya Woh Bhar Laya
he had come thirsty, and gone with a river full
Noor Ki Barish Mein Beeghta Sa Tar Aaya
wet in the rain of light, has came over
this is the real truth of those who have faith in true god! It can never comes to cheats who kill people in the name of god! I am sorry to say but my land is full of people who govern faiths and have no idea of what it actually is.
O Ek Khusbu Aati Thi
(There comes a fragrance)
Mein Bhatakta Jata Tha,
(I would lose control)
Reshmi Si Maya Thi
(There was a silky image)
Aur Mein Takta Jata Tha
(And I would kep looking)
Jab Teri Gali Aaya, Sach Tabhi Nazar Aaya
(When your stret was near, then I could truly see)
Mujhe Mein Woh Khusboo Thi, Jisse Tune Milwaya
(I possessed the fragrance, that you brought to me)
Tut Ke Bikharna Mujhko Zarur Aata Hai
(Scattering into pieces, I can really do)
Hoo, Tut Ke Bikharna Mujhko Zarur Aata Hai
Varna Ibbadat Wala Ssarur Aata Hai
(Otherwise I can only pray)
Sajde Mein Rehne Do, Abb Kahin Na Jaunga
(Let me stay at your feet[in prayers], I will not go anywhere now)
Abb Jo Tumne Tukhraya To Sawar Na Paunga
(Now if you leave me, then I will not be able to recover)
these lines had spoken my heart of the moments when I laid my head each time in the temple of Sai Baba at bithoor in kanpur from where I really found the true meaning of secularity! The real happiness lies in seving humanity and not in reading books and preaching them with force
Sar Utha Ke Mene To Kitni Khwahishe Ki Thi
(I had asked for so many things)
Kitne Khwaab Dekhe The Kitni Khosishe Ki Thi
(Had seen so many dreams, had tried a lot)
Jab Tu Rubaru Aaya...
(When you appeared in full)
Jab Tu Rubaru Aaya Nazarein Na Mila Paya
(With your presence, I could not look into your eyes[I shied away])
Sar Jhuka Ke Ek Pal Mein... Ooo
(With bowing head, in a second...)
Sar Jhuka Ke Ek Pal Mein Mene Kya Nahi Paya
(With bowing head, in a second what have I not achieved)
brilliant vocals of kailash kher here! Leaves a tremendous impact! Its been so many times in life that we had been trying to fool our god! Deep within we all are selfish! We are selfish cos we wish! Wishing shows our selfishness to god, may be one day if ever there is a god, and he would ask us to retrace the prayers made by us! There would be nothing more than personal wishes and how shameful would be that for most of us. will we be able to look into the eyes of our god?
Mora Piya Ghar Aaya, Mora Piya Ghar Aaya
(My husband/partner has come home)
Maula Maula Maula Mere Maula
Maula Maula Maula Maula
Time and again I had been left in tears after hearing this song in my I-pod! Rahmann had always been a maestro in portraying the essence of saint music in tracks like “kehna hi kya” and “khawaja mere khawaja” but this one had left a greater impact on me for sure! Most of it goes to the lyrics of this track from which even an agnostic like me had gathered inspiration to write something like this! This track had retraced me to the paths of the saint that I had been a firm follower of him even after becoming an agnostic and thats Sai Baba, the secular humanitarian idol whose idea of faith is the one that dwell within my heart! The existence of single power, the necessity of peace! The immediate stopping of ridiculous ex aggregated display of faith! In last few months I had lost the track of Sai Baba too, but thanks to this song, I am trying to find a way back into my faith in secularity and in him!
