कश्मीर - गर जन्नत है ज़मीन पे कहीं, यहीं पे है हमीनस्तो I

Tripoto

गर फिरदौस रूहे ज़मीं अस्त


हमीनस्तो, हमीनस्तो

मेरी जान रूह दिल से बा-बशत

हमीनस्तो, हमीनस्तो

English Translation

If there’s paradise on Earth somewhere

It is here. It is here.

Where my life, my soul and my heart reside

It is here. Here it is.

ख़ामोश दरख्तों के साए


ये खौफ़ है सोया सा

कुछ खोया खोया हमने भी

ये चेहरा है रोया सा

English Translation

The shadows of the trees are all silent

There's a terror sleeping beneath

I’ve also lost something

And shed tears silently

मुरझाते गुलों ने झुक के कहा

हमें आदत है हमीं असतो

चलते लम्हों ने रुक के कहा

इनायत है हमीं असतो

हमीं असतो.. हमीं असतो..

English Translation

The withering flowers bowed and said,

We are used to this in this place.

The passing moments paused by and said,

This place has mercy on us.

ये वीराने,


ये सन्नाटे

ये क्या बोल रहे हैं

आते जाते

English Translation

These isolated places,

These silences,

Are trying to say something,

As they pass.

पंछी सारे उड़ गए कहीं


बस घोंसले हैं हमीनस्तो

गर जन्नत है ज़मीन पे कहीं

यहीं पे है हमीनस्तो

हमीनस्तो हमीनस्तो..

English Translation

All the birds have flown away,

What remains are their empty nests in this place.

If there is heaven on earth somewhere,

It is here. Here it is.

Somewhere across the river Lidder (as seen from Pahalgam)
