Chalthe Chalthe, Walking the path of life. Film, Pakeezah. (Urdu for pure.)

Chalthe chalthe yunhi koi mil gayatha, In travels you may find life’s companions. Saarae raah chalthe, those who travel all the way. Vahi thamke ruhae gayi hai meri raath dhalthe dhalthe, stopping  they make a home with me every night. Vohi thumsae keh gayi hae meri raath jhalthe jhalthe. They tell me that they were companions in strife.  Jo kahi gayi mujh se, this is what was told to me, vo zamana keh raha hai,  a period of history that spoke. Ifsana ban gayi hain merae baath chalthe, I made a picture of my story, as I walked onward. Shabae inthizaar aakhir kabhi hogi vaqth sar bhi, Sometimes, your journey’s partner waits for the appropriate moment, ye chiraag bujh rahe hain, to put out the embers of life, mere saath jalthe jalthe in order to burn as one.
