English Lyrics: Kabhi Kabhi Aditi Zindagi (Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na)

so this was yet another flattering experience..

a colleague.. and now a friend - Ritesh, who was working with us at CIIE sent in the english translation of the song, which was apparently picked up from Vicky's post.

The English Lyrics for the song... for yours truly.. from Ritesh... Now for all my readers.. right here... :P

Sometimes in life, Aditi, someone seems like your own, just like that.
Sometimes Aditi, when they are separated, it seems like a dream.
In such a condition, how can anyone stop their tears from flowing?
And how can someone think everything’s gonna be okay?

Sometimes it seems there is no happiness nor fun left in life
Sometimes it seems every day is difficult, every moment is a punishment
In such a condition, how can someone smile, or be happy and laugh?
And how can they think everything’s gonna be okay?

Think about it dear, how much I love you.
If there are tears in your eyes, I cry too.
I sing, even though I donno how to sing.
Hey Aditi, it's true that sometimes there is darkness in the entire world
But it’s only after night that day comes.

Sometimes in life, Aditi, someone seems like your own, just like that.
Sometimes Aditi, when they are separated, it seems like a dream.
Hey Aditi, laugh, laugh, laugh, laugh, laugh a little
Or at least just give a little, little, little, little smile.

If you are happy, it seems the world is filled with happiness
The sun emerges from the clouds and spreads life
Hey listen, what the intoxicating wind is telling you
That Aditi, those who are separated, one day do meet again
Aditi, whether you know it or not, flowers do bloom again

Sometimes in life, Aditi, someone seems like your own, just like that.
Sometimes Aditi, when they are separated, it seems like a dream.
( Hey Aditi, laugh, laugh, laugh, laugh, laugh a little
Or at least just give a little, little, little, little smile. ) - 5

After reading these lines, I couldn't stop laughing through out the day... Hillarious hai...

Hope you enjoyed too..
more to come up on this song and ma LyF...

Kabhi Kabhi Aditi

Kabhi Kabhi Aditi Zindagi
Mein yuhi koi apna lagta hai
Kabhi Kabhi Aditi woh bichad jaye to
Ek sapna lagta hai

For a change, after a while, even I've started liking this song..
I get to listen to it atleast 3 - 4 times a day...

The lyrics are very beautiful...

The line I lyk the most -

Hey Aditi hasde hasde hasde hasde hasde tu zara
Nahi to bas thoda thoda thoda thoda thoda thoda muskura

And I wud want to believe in ...

Tu Kush Hai to lage ki jahan mein chai hai kushi
Suraj nikle badlon se aur baate zindagi
Sunto zara madhosh hawa tujhse kehne lagi

Ki Aditi woh jo bichadte hain ek na ek din phir mil jate hain
Aditi jane tu ya jaane na phool phir khil jate hain

.... but, it ain't the truth...

I blv in this one whole heartedly...

Hey Aditi mana kabhi, kabhi sare jahan mein andhera hota hai
Lekin raat ke baad hi to savera hota

Someone also dedicated the song at a live perfomance, which was pretty flattering.
A few sent dedications via the internet, via twitter...
A few sent lyrics for the song...

It was overwhelming...

And incidently Shadez was the first one to temme about it on twitter and that was 2 months back.. woah !! but me had completely forgotten abt the song after that conversation..

I did a lil research on the song following is the analysis:

Look up the song on Summize and it reveals sooooo many searches.
Lot of people are addikted to the song... me is not yet...
Most of them love the song.
The video on YouTube has 8.25 L views in just one month.. The video here.
More videos for the for the song on YouTube can be found here.

I've personally watched the video on YouTube and liked it..

in Short, I am kinda famous... :D

For the records, I havn't got a chance to watch the movie... m looking for some1 worth watchin it with :P

Not that I mind all this, but I think its a very good mkting strategy...
And I'm makin the most of it..

Hop on for more on this song.. on this blog..

And each recurrence of my name above in the lines has a different link to it. Some hide n seek for u to enjoy.. :)


Kabhi kabhi 'mera naam' zindagi
mein yuhin koi apna lagta hai :P
