Tu Ganga Ki Mauj



akēlī mat jāiyē rādhē jamunā kē tīr Radha, don't go alone to the banks of the Jamuna


tū gaṁgā kī mauj, maiṁ You are the surge of the Ganges
jamunā kā dhārā I am the flow of the Jamuna

hō rahēgā milan, yah hamārā This union of ours, is bound to happen,
hō hamārā, tumhārā rahēgā milan it is a union, mine, yours, bound to happen,
yah hamārā tumhārā this one of yours and mine.


agar tū hai sāgar If you are the ocean

na tum sē yah naiyyā. not this boat by yourself.
milēṁgī na maṁzil tumhēṁ bin khivaiyā A destination won't meet you without rower,

calē āō jī, calē āō jī, Come on, yes, come on, yes,
calē āō maujōṁ kā lē kar sahārā bring the waves of your succor and come on!
hō rahēgā milan yah hamārā tumhārā This union of yours and mine is bound to happen.


bhalā, kaisē ṭūṭēṁgē baṁdhan yē dil kē, Well, how will they break, these bonds of the heart,
baṁdhan yē dil kē? these bonds of the heart?
bichṛtī nahīṁ mauj sē mauj mil kē Wave with wave, in unison, are not separated,
mauj mil kē। the waves, in unison.

tumhēṁ ḍhūm̐ḍh lēṁgē। and I will look for you.
banāēm̐gē ham, banāēm̐gē ham, One day we will turn,
banāēm̐gē tūfān kō ēk din kinārā। we will turn the storm into a shore.
hō rahēgā milan yah hamārā tumhārā This union of yours and mine is bound to happen.


tū gaṁgā kī mauj, maiṁ You're the surge of the Ganges
jamunā kā dhārā I am the flow of the Jamuna

hō rahēgā milan, yah hamārā This union of ours, is bound to happen,
hō hamārā, tumhārā rahēgā milan it is a union, mine, yours, bound to happen,
yah hamārā tumhārā this one of yours and mine.
