Jaage Hain

Jaage hain der tak hamein
Kuch der sone do
Thodee see raat aur hai
Subah to hone do
Aadhe adhoore khwaab jo
poore na ho sake
ik baar phir se neend mein
woh khwaab bone do

These lines from Guru are very touching. Unsaid words, unfulfilled dreams, missed chances – life is full of these. If only, we had not behaved as we did. If only, we were given another chance. If only, we had had the time. If only, life hadn’t taken the turn that it did. If only….

Life goes on. Time, the Supreme Healer is always there. But memories remain. Forever. These lines from Yaadein are very apt.

Nagme hain, Shikhwe hain,
Kisse hain, Baatein hain,
Baatein bhool jaati hain,
Yaadein yaad aati hain.
Yaadein.. Meethi Meethi yaadein
Khatti Meethi yaadein..

Memories bring back those moments in front of your eyes again. You can’t escape them. You live through them again and again, only to realize that you didn’t do your best.

But there’s hope. For a better future. Life goes on only because of this Hope. If there is no hope, we can do nothing other than sit and cry forever.

The natural flights of the human mind are not from pleasure to pleasure but from hope to hope. – Samuel Johnson

Life goes on…

  1. Came here through Google when I was smitten by the Jaage Hain song and searching for it… This is well written about the songs and time being the immediate curse and the ultimate-healer on the long-run… The words on hope being the only thing to live for reminded me of the one of my fave movies The Shawshank Redemption…

    Have a good one…
