Aye Zindagi Gale Laga Le

Aye Zindagi, Gale Laga Le.....
This is a favorite song of mine. From the 1983 movie Sadma, this beautiful song was written by Gulzar and composed by the great Illayaraaja. Here is my crude translation of the lyrics and rendition of the song (on a karaoke track that I found on the internet).

Oh life, embrace me!
I have embraced each and every sorrow of yours, haven’t I?
Oh life, embrace me!

Giving an excuse, quietly away from the world
Under the screen of my eyelids, I filled my home
I have got your support, oh Life
La la la….

There was a small shadow that had come into my eyes,
But I have satisfied myself with just two drops of tears,
I have reached the shore, oh Life
La la la….

Oh life, embrace me!
La la la….
I have embraced each and every sorrow of yours, haven’t I?
Embrace me! Embrace me!

  2. Thank you Aditi, for listening and for your comment!! You are always very kind. :)
    Yes, I don't know how I missed the great Suresh Wadkar's name on my blog. Thank you very much for mentioning him in your comment. BTW, did you know he has sung a lot of songs in Oriya. In fact, when I was a kid, I used to think he was an Oriya, because he sang so many Oriya songs. Only later did I learn that he was from Maharashtra. Thanks again, Aditi.
