Bollywood : Woh To Hai Albela ( Beloved song)

12 Apr

This is one of my most beloved songs growing up and fell in love with Shah Rukh Khan movies. This is from the movie Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa (1994). Please see : http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0110222/plotsummary?ref_=tt_ov_pl.This about a time when young and struggling to find ourselves. Well am not any different now. Not too good for me guess. I would listen to this song many times on radio and a tape recorder. It’s about a boy who is to say a ” beautiful loser.” The name borrowed from a Leonard Cohen book. This is my favorite shah Rukh khan movie. The video has English subtitles and hope you like the song. It’s about ” how we judge people” , “we are so focused on a person’s flaws and hardly see a person’s inherent worth ” perhaps that needs nurturing, faith, so we look at a Bio, is bio then a person? Pray is there a one with zero flaws, presidents, prime ministers, pope, kings, viceroys, any one, is it possible…

The video has English subtitles and hope you like the song. I love this song. I dedicate it all of you dear ones in good faith as Mother Teresa once said ” If you judge people, you have no time to love them.” I know its hard to love. Its hard to have faith. We must never give up on people we love. Family. Children. Friend. Dear one..

Woh To Hai Albela :

Woh to hai albela
Harazo mein akela

He is unique
One in a thousand

Sada tumne ayeb dekha
Hoonar toh na dekha

You always saw flaws ( limitations)
You never saw his abilities ( qualities)

Woh to hai albela
Harazo mein akela
Sada tumne ayeb dekha
Hoonar toh na dekha
Woh to hai albela..

He is unique
One in a thousand
You always saw flaws ( limitations)
You never saw his abilities ( qualities)
He is unique

Phursat mili na tumhe
Apne jahaan se
Uske bhi dil ki kabhi
Samjhte kahaan se

You never found a moment
in your busy world ( life)
to see what goes in his ” heart ”
How then would you understand

Jana hai jise phatar
Heera hai woh toh heera
Sada tumne ayeb dekha
Hoonar toh na dekha (Male)

You thought of him a ” stone”
Diamond ( precious) he is, he is a ” diamond( precious)”
You always saw flaws (limitations)
You never saw his abilities ( qualities)

Woh to hai albela
Harazo mein akela
Woh to hai albela..

He is unique
One in a thousand
He is unique

Banshi to lakdi sada
Samjha kiye tum
Par uske nagmo ki dhun
Kahan sun sake tum

You saw a ” flute” as a ” bare wood”
How can you then listen to his ” tunes”
How can you then listen to his ” songs”

Diye ki baati dekhi
Dekhi na uski jyoti
Sada tumne ayeb dekha
Hoonar toh na dekha

You saw a lamp
You did not see its ” light”
You always saw flaws ( limitations)
You never saw his abilities ( qualities)

Woh to hai albela
Harazo mein akela

He is unique
One in a thousand

Woh to hai albela
Harazo mein akela

He is unique
One in a thousand

Woh to hai albela
Harazo mein akela

He is unique
One in a thousand

Hope you love this song as much did enjoy sharing. The song is penned by a great lyricist of yesteryear’s late Majrooh Sultanpuri. Hope  love nourishes you, nurtures you and fulfills you. May be by its very nature must not follow public opinion. The great Milan Kundera wrote ” Two people in love, alone, isolated from the world, that’s beautiful.” I want to make a addendum ” A family in love, isolated from the world, that’s beautiful.” That is my dream.

Have a lovely day dear friends! Thank you!
