A Soulful Voice

It was the summer of 2013. I had overheard the release of the movie Aashiqui 2, almost 23 years after the blockbuster musical Aashiqui. 

But being extremely busy with work, I could not catch up with the songs of the movie. This was until I heard two free souls on the train, at half past ten in the night, on the way back home, singing to their heart - Sun Raha Hai Na Tu, Ro Raha Hun Main.

Since then, I love to hear the song - again and again. And everytime I hear this song, it breaks my heart.

And it did again today, when I heard (not the first time), this talented young girl - Trumpa Kumari - giving a rendition of this song.



The young girl, very unfortunately, can't see. But she is blessed with a very beautiful voice. May she succeed majestically in life.

The beautiful lyrics of the song go as below.

Apne karam ki kar adaayein
Yaara, Yaaraa… yaara!

Mujhko iraade de
Kasamein de, waade de
Meri duaaon ke ishaaron ko sahaare de
Dil ko thikaane de
Naye bahaane de
Khaabon ki baarishon ko
Mausam ke paimane de
Apne karam ki kar adaayein
Kar de idhar bhi tu nigaahein

Sun raha hai naa tu
Ro raha hun main
Sun raha hai naa tu
Kyun ro raha hun main (x2)

Manzilein ruswa hain
Khoya hai raasta
Aaye le jaaye
Itni si iltejaa
Ye meri zamanat hai
Tu meri amaanat hai haan…

Apne karam ki kar adayein
Kar de idhar bhi tu nigaahein
Sun raha hai naa tu
Ro raha hoon main
Sun raha hai naa tu
Kyun ro raha hun main

Waqt bhi thehara hai
Kaise kyun ye huaa
Kaash tu aise aaye
Jaise koi duaa
Tu rooh ki raahat hai
Tu meri ibaadat hai

Apne karam ki kar adaayein
Kar de idhar bhi tu nigaahein

Sun raha hai naa tu
Ro raha hoon main
Sun raha hai naa tu
Kyun ro raha hun main (x2)

Yaaraa….
