Kaatay Na Katay


काटे  कटे
It passes with difficulty
00 :09
 बेख़बर तुझ को क्या फ़िक्र
कैसा हो गया है
यह मुझ पे जो असर
मैं लुटी हाँ लुटी
मैं सारी बस तेरे लिये
Oh, you unaware, what worry is to you
how has become,
this effect (that you have) on me?
I was left bereft, yes, bereft
I am all, entirely for you
00 :20
सुन, सितमगर,
कुछ तो रहम कर
मर जाऊँगी मैं  तू मिला अगर
सोहने सपनों की दुनिया सजाई मैं ने तेरे लिये
Listen, you oppressor,
show at least some mercy!
I will die if you don’t join me
I prepared for you a world of alluring dreams
00 :32
यूँ  सता
दिल  जला
तेरे इश्क़ में हूँ मैं मुब्तला
दीदार करा दे
इक बार फिर मुझे प्यार दे
Don’t torment me this way,
don’t make (my) heart burn
I am entangled in yor love
Let me have a glimpse
Love me one more time

काटे  कटे रे रतिया
सैयाँ इंतज़ार में

हाए हाए मैं तो मर गई बेदर्दी तेरे प्यार में
ओए होए मैं तो मर गई बेदर्दी तेरे प्यार में
काटे  कटे रे रतिया
The night passes with difficulty,
beloved, in expectation
[both lines x2]
Alas, alas! I just died in your love, you callous!
Ho, alas! I just died in your love, you callous!
Oh, the night passes with difficulty!

हूँ बेसबर मुझ को है यह डर 
भूल जाना  मुझे सुन  दिलबर
हर सुकून हर ख़ुशी लुटाई मैं ने तेरे लिये
I am anxious. I have this fear …
Listen, ah, beloved: do not forget me!
I squandered every peace, every joy, for you

तू आए  जाए
काहे सताया तू ने
सपना दिखाया तू ने
सपना दिखाया
Day and night [x2]
I remain in your dreams [x2]
You neither come nor go, to whom shall I tell?
Day and night
I remain in your dreams
You neither come nor go
Why did you torment (me)?
You revealed a dream
revealed a dream …

Kaatay na Katay (Hindi: काटे न कटे, Urdu: کاٹے نہ کٹے) is an expression used in Hindustani language to express that some period of time passes slowly, that it is spent with difficulty.
In Hindustani poetry, the expression "Kaatay na katay ratiyaa" (the night passes with difficulty), is used very often, to indicate the uneasiness of unrequited love.

The lyrics of the song "Kaatay na Katay" were written by the poet Saifuddin Saif, and the music was composed by the musician, composer, and director Nisar Bazmi, both Indo-Pakistanis.
It was featured in the 1972 Pakistani musical drama "Umrao Jaan Ada", in that occasion sung by the Bangladeshi singer Runa Laila.

The video clip is an arrangement that adds some rock and modern ballad parts to this classic song, and it was aired in 2017 during season 10 of Coke Studio Pakistan.

The song expresses the point of view of a woman, so it is interpreted by 3 female Pakistani singers: Humera Arshad for the traditional part, and Aima Baig and Rachel Viccaji for the modern part.
By the end of the song a male singer, (Ali Hamza, from the band Noori), does some humming to provide ambiance.
