Afghan Jalebi, The pride of Afghanistan. Lyrics and song bollywood. Dance by Elif Khan.

Afghan jalebi, Makhtool jigar (ya baba), The pride of Afghanistan with whom I am love struck, qaatil hai nazar (ya baba) smitten by your eyes Ik mahajabi, a great beauty, ek noor nabi, without compare, rabb ki rubaai, God’s faithful ya hai tabaahi, to discover it is challenge, gardan surahi, the human, a work of instruments, boli ilaahi, a claim that was made from the beginning. Afghan jalebi, the pride of Afghanistan, mashooq farebi, hidden ghayal hai tera deewana, life that is remade, bhai wah, bhai wah, longing never ending, bandook dikha ke, show your rage, kya pyar karegi, otherwise what will you have to love with? Chehra bhi kabhi dikhana, show your face sometime, bhai wah bhai wah bhai wah, o wow, o wow, Afghan jalebi mashooq farebi ghayal hai tera deewana bhai wah, bhai wah, O dekh darazi, Look at me, banda namaz (wallah), ready to reveal, khel ke baazi (wallah), a game of players khamkha empty longings, ab thehra na kissi, kaam ka, that will lead to despair, (wallah) (God’s promise.) Meer ka koi,  sher suna ke, talk of riches, ghunth lagga ke, drunk with your love (wallah) jaam ka, mera khan mehaz naam ka, found names intertwined Oye lakht-e-jigar (ya baba), my heart Oye noor-e-nazar, is a song without compare (ya baba), ek teer hai tu, you are an arrow (ya baba) main chaak jigar, in whose grasp I am forever bound, (ya baba), bando se nahi toh, allah se daregi, those that disobey will pay God.  Waada to kabhi nibhana, bhai wah, fulfill your vows this time. Khwaja ji ki paas teri chugli karunga, I am prepared to complain to God if you fail, main teri, chugli, karunga, main teri chugli karunga, anguthi mein quaid teri ungli karunga, main teri chugli karunga, main teri chugli karunga, Anguthi mein quaid teri ungli karunga main teri chugli karunga, until you obey gul-e-gulzar (ya baba) an awakened song mere saradar (ya baba), my ruler, bade mansoor (ya baba), your laws are better, tere rukhsaar (ya baba), haye shamsheer nigaahein, whose works are like a hunter’s chabook si adaayein, nacheez pe na chalana, use wisely, bhai wah, bhai wah, o wow, o wow.

Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, Receive the grace of love.

 Sukh dukh jhoote dhan bhi jhoota,  Happiness and sadness are false as is wealth. Jhooti moh maya, false is one’s illusion, sacha man ka vo kaun a jahan, go where those with a truthful heart live. Prem ratan dhan payo. Ni sa sa, sa ni ni re payo prem ratan dhan paya, receive the grace of love. Payo chaayo, aayo, gaayo, receive, share, come and sing. Ho saiyan thu kamal ka baathe bhi kamal ki, beloved you are truly wonderful, your words are wonderful as well, lagan rang jyotiyan bholi mai kamal ki, we made life’s colors bright, par par payo re, prem ratan dhan payo, ratan ki milan laayo dhan payo, bring our meeting over so that you can receive its wealth. Kisi ne laga rang jyotian, bholi mai kamal ki someone has lit the colors of life making it forgetful, parr payo re prem ratan dhan payo, anjuman bhar aayo chaayo. Make a society with love and share that message across the world.

Diwani Masthani, The exuberant life. Dance performance, Elif Khan.

Adhuri apsara, mai huzoor ali apsara, I am servant of that rare gem,  athi sundara, that is so beautiful,  saath sath, brings truth home to you, ho ko hai ali hariyali ali, o ali, say the name of God. Nazar jo theri laagi diwani ho gayi, once our gaze met, you have made me young again. Diwani haan diwani ho gayi, yes, young, so young again. Mashroor mere ishq ki kahani ho gayi, my love for you became divine, jo jag ne na mani tho mayene bithani kahan thi mai dekho kahan chali aayi, those who did not let me live are taken aback by how far I have come.  Kehete hai ye diwani mastani ho gayi, that life has been renewed. Diwani thu masthani thu deewani pakeezah hasthi hai theri murani hai, the pure delight of your grace, sabh noor noor sa bhikra, that is understood as the most holy. Hai iq bhul gaya, even as the world forgets, sarra saassa sarra.
