And there it is, we’re almost done with 2013!

Tomorrow, we shall renew our pledges to destiny. Tomorrow we shall try to rise again, with newer hopes. Tomorrow we shall resolve anew to fight for all that we desire. Tomorrow we shall plunge again into the waters of uncertainty, and swim tirelessly toward our place in the sun.

But all that will be tomorrow.

Today, tonight, let us celebrate ourselves. Let us bask in the glory of that what we have achieved. Let us celebrate the warrior in all of us who refuses to lay by the side, and continues walking no matter what. Who doesn’t get bothered by the ups and down, who keeps to the road and journeys on forward!

All you wise, wonderful people – love yourself!

And have a happy new year!

Film: Parichay

Music: R. D. Burman

Singer: Kishore Kumar

Lyrics: 🙂

Here goes…

Musafir Hoon Yaaron

Musafir hoon yaaron,

Na ghar hai na thikaana,

Mujhe chalte jaana hai,

Bas, chalte jaana…

 

Ek raah ruk gayi to aur jud gayi,

Main muda to saath-saath raah mud gayi,

Hawa ke paron par mera aashiaana…

 

Din ne haath thaam kar idhar bitha liya,

Raat ne ishaare se udhar bula liya,

Subah se, shaam se mera dostaana…

 

Musafir hoon yaaron,

Na ghar hai na thikaana,

Mujhe chalte jaana hai,

Bas, chalte jaana…


There’s no poetry on the silver screen of Hindi cinema like Gulzar’s. If there’s a song you want the words to, please let me know in the comments below.
