    DIN KE UJAALE MEIN
    IN THE BRIGHTNESS OF THE DAY


    Din ke ujaale mein, yeh shaam ki jhalak kaisai hai chaayee

    Abhi abhi toe yahan sawera thaa, yeh saanjh kahan se ayee



    Aass paas baithe hai jo yeh loge, unhe ujaala nasseb hai

    To hamne kya gunha kiya hai batao, ki andhera kareeb hai



    Iss subah aur shaam ki uljhan mein aise phasai jaate hai hum

    Gar suraj na tha nasseb hamare, chand ko toe dekh paatai hum



    Aisaa aalam hai chaaya ae doston, ki aankhe khuli hai per bandh

    Zindagi key yeh kuch din hai baaki, jo guzar jaye, woh he bus hai kamm







    In the bright glow of daylight, from whence has this shadow of night crept in

    Just moments ago, dawn filled this place, how then has dusk overtaken it



    To those blessed who surround me, their destiny brings blissful light

    Oh do tell me, what have I done wrong, that only darkness is my plight



    Held am I so fast into the knotted disarray of darkness and light

    If sunlight wasn’t to be my destiny, alas, moonlight I had hoped might



    Caught am I in such a dilemma my friends, that my eyes are shut wide open

    Of the few days that remain of life, those spent, are blessedly less to come
