Tanya Wells, Ghazal– Closer you came to me, Rafta Rafta Wo Meri. Commander Adam Dalgliesh’s episodes from the novels of PD James. Richard Harvey, composer of the theme of the series.

Raftha raftha woh meri hasthi ka saamaan ho gaye, Subtly and gradually, you became the reason for my existence. Pehlay jaan, phir jaan-e-jaan, phir jaan-e-jaana ho gaye. First my life, then the love of my life, finally our love became complete. Din-b-din bardthi gehin eis husn ki raaniyaan. Day by day, my love’s empire increased. Pehlay Gul, phir gul-badan, phir gul-badamaan ho gaye. First the love was like a fragrance after which it transformed into a flower then finally blossoming into a rose. Aap tho nazdeek say nazdeek-thar aathay gaye you kept coming closer and closer to me. And being close was enough for intimacy. Pehlay dil, phir dilruba, phir dil kay mehmaan ho gaye first my heart, then my precious love and finally a permanent guest in my heart. Raftha raftha woh meri hasti ka saamaan ho gaye. Subtly and gradually, God became my existence. Pyar jab Hadd se badha saare Taqaloof mitth gaye When love transcended its boundaries, all unknowing was erased. Aap se phir thum huay phir thu ka unwaan hogaye. First we were formal then informal and finally together as one.
