बहती हवा सा था वह
He was like a cool breeze

बहती हवा सा था वह
उड़ती पतंग सा था वह
कहाँ गया, उसे ढूँढो!
He was like a cool breeze
He was like a flying kite
Wherever he went, search for him!

बहती हवा सा था वह

हम को तो राहें थीं चलाती
वह ख़ुद अपनी राह बनाता
गिरता, संभलता,
मस्ती में चलता था वह
While we used to follow conventionalisms
he used to build his own way
He used to tumble, then set himself right,
then keep walking in ecstasy
01 :50PlayPause
हम को कल की फ़िक्र सताती
वह बस आज का जश्न
मनाता
हर लम्हे को खुलके जीता था वह
The anxiety of tomorrow used to trouble us,
he solely used to observe
the celebration of today
He used to go freely at every moment
02 :04PlayPause
कहाँ से आया था वह
छू के हमारे दिल को
कहाँ गया, उसे ढूँढो!
From wherever he had come
having touched our heart,
wherever he went, search for him!
02 :51PlayPause
सुलगती धूप में छाओं के जैसा 
रेगिस्तान में गाँव के जैसा 
मन के घाव पे मरहम जैसा था वह
He was like a shade in the burning sun,
and like a village in the middle of the desert
He was like balm on a wound of the heart
03 :05PlayPause
हम सहमे से रहते कुएँ में
वह नदिया में गोते लगाता
उलटी धारा चीर के
तैरता था वह
We used to remain, like frightened, in a well,
He used to dive headfirst in brooks
He used to swim
having cleft against the current
03 :19PlayPause
बादल आवारा था वह
यार हमारा था वो
कहाँ गया, उसे ढूँढो!
He was a wandering cloud
He was our companion
Wherever he went, search for him!
03 :36PlayPause
हम को तो
राहें थीं चलाती
वह ख़ुद अपनी राह बनता
गिरता, संभालता,
मस्ती में चलता था वह
While we used to follow conventionalisms
He used to build his own way
He used to tumble, then set himself right,
then keep walking in ecstasy

the celebration of today
He used to go freely at every moment

कहाँ से आया था वह
छू के हमारे दिल को
कहाँ गया, उसे ढूँढो!
