A Song For Romance…

Caution: Long Post Ahead… Do Read Though… You Might Like It!! 🙂


Well, if there is a song I am sentimentally attached to, it is the song Sun ri Sakhi from the movie Humse Hai Muqabla. The song is the reason, for my near 10 year relationship with my sweetheart. I have heard many romantic songs after, but none has the magic that I feel this song creates. The lyrics go such…


sun ri sakhi, meri pyaari sakhi, ye dil kahin khoyaa hai meraa
jaane kahaan ise bhool gayaa, nahin kuchh bhi hai mujhko pataa
teri paayal mein maine dhoond liyaa, tere qadmon tale sajni
pyaar kiyaa to jaan gayaa, ye mushkil hai kitni
meri saanson mein teraa pyaar basaa, aankhon mein tumhi sajni
sun ri sakhi, meri pyaari sakhi, ye dil kahin khoyaa hai meraa


kaise tujhe izhaar karoon main haalat is dil ki
tan mein man mein is dhadkan mein ho rahi halchal si
dekhe binaa tujhe lagti hai, ik yug si ek ghadi
sab nazren jo dekh rahi, mere dil mein dahshat si
ye svarg hai yaa nark hai, mujhko hosh nahin
meri zindagi aur maut hai, ab haath mein tere hi..
sun ri sakhi, meri pyaari sakhi, ye dil kahin khoyaa hai meraa


koyaliyaa tu kah de to tujhe geet sunaaoo main
naagmani teri naagin si zulfon ko sanvaaroo main
chandramukhi tujhe neend nahin to lori sunaaoo main
thandi havaa nahin lag jaaye, tujhe chunadi odaaoon main
mere pyaar ki jo baat hai, kaanon mein bataaoon main
tere qadmon ke jo nishaan hai, yaadon mein basaaoon main


sun ri sakhi, meri pyaari sakhi, ye dil kahin khoyaa hai meraa
jaane kahaan ise bhool gayaa, nahin kuchh bhi hai mujhko pataa
teri paayal mein maine dhoondh liyaa, tere qadmon tale sajni,
pyaar kiyaa to jaan gayaa, ye mushkil hai kitni,
meri saanson mein teraa pyaar basaa, aankhon mein tumhi sajni
sun ri sakhi, meri pyaari sakhi, ye dil kahin khoyaa hai meraa…





For the benefit of those who have no idea about Hindi, I’ll translate. I’ll do my best to make sure, the meaning has not been lost.


Sweetheart, my sweetheart,
My heart is lost somewhere
Where I forgot it, I know not.
By the sound of your anklets,
I searched for you.
I found how difficult love is,
Only after falling in love with you
Love for you is in my every breath.
Only you in my eyes


How do I let you know?
The state of my heart right now
In my body, mind, in every beat of my heart,
I feel the love for you.
Without seeing you,
I feel a second is a thousand years
Everyone is seeing me,
But they can’t understand my feelings.
I am unaware, if this is heaven or hell,
I leave my life or my death in your hands


Sweetheart, if you want,
I can sing for you,
Sweetheart, I want to stroke,
Your silky smooth hair,
If you are not feeling sleepy,
I could sing a lullaby for you,
So that the cold breeze doesn’t hit you,
I’ll put a shawl on you.
What I feel, my love for you,
Let me whisper in your ears,
Your every footstep, on these sands,
Let me forever engrave in my memories.




Well that’s what it means.
I sang it to her, and she loved it. We danced to it once, in our college days, before any of our classmates came to college. My love for her is undying. Every time I hear the song, I remember her. We are separated right now by a long distance. But this song connects our hearts. She loves it too. Well, when PJ asked to post on a romantic song close to my heart, I thought I’d write more about her, but this is all I can wrangle up at the moment. It is long I know, but thanks for reading it.




you can listen to it here: Sun Ri Sakhi

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  7. Had heard the song long ago and had forgotten. For me.. the lyrics and translation ‘read’ better than hearing the song.. nicely done.. however the word ‘sakhi’ has a special ring which probably has no fitting synonym in english.

  8. hey!! not at all a long post and a very lovely one…The lady in question is very lucky.Good luck to you both, may the separation end soon.
