जीत
Victory
00 :09
बहकी सभी ज़ुबान है,
हम हैं हज़ारों में
अब की कमी ज़रा है,
हर चीज़ ख़ास है
All language is misleading,
we are in the thousands.
The shortcomings of now are but a few,
every thing is special.
00 :19
अब है जो है वह समा है,
तुम रह सके तो रब्बा है
अब है जो है वह समा है,
तुम रह सके 
The "now" is what it is, it's the time,
if you can stay (in it), you are God
The "now" is what it is, it's the time,
if you can stay …
00 :28
ऐसी जीत,
अब चाहे ज़िंदगी
[both lines x2]
हाय 
हाय 
Such a victory,
life wants the "now".
[both lines x2]
Ah! …
Ah! …
01 :07
सहनी हमें सजा है,
हम हैं बाज़ारों में
सब की नज़र यहाँ है,
हर चीज़ राज़ है
We must endure punishment,
we are among the common folk.
The sight of all is here,
every think is a mystery.
01 :17
अब है जो वह  समा है,
तुम रह सके तो रब्बा है
अब है जो है वह  समा है,
तुम रह सके 
The "now" is what it is, it's the time,
if you can stay (in it), you are God
The "now" is what it is, it's the time,
if you can stay …
01 :26
ऐसी जीत,
अब चाहे ज़िंदगी
[both lines x2]
हाय 
Such a victory,
life wants the "now".
[both lines x2]
Ah! …
01 :56
ऐसी ज़िंदगी हम [chip] छिपाएँ,
हम  आए आए आए, हम  आए
ऐसी जीत [chip] छिपाएँ,
ऐसी जीत हम  पाए
[all stanza x2]
We conceal/keep back such a life,
we don't get it, we don't get it.
We conceal/keep back such a ictory,
we don't achieve such a victory.
[all stanza x2]
02 :44
ऐसी जीत,
 [chip] छिपाएँ [x3]
ऐसी जीत,
 [chip] छिपाएँ [x3]
हाय 
Such a victory,
let's not keep it back/conceal it [x3]
Such a victory,
let's not keep it back/conceal it [x3]
Ah! …

Jeet (Hindi:जीत, Urdu: جِیت) "Victory", is a song and video clip released in 2018, written and composed by the Indian techno musician Ritviz.

The song's lyrics speak about the importance of seizing the present moment, of enjoying the "now".
The meaning and grammar of the lyrics are a little unclear, the words mostly contribute to provide an ambiance.

In the video clip, three young women who perform very humble jobs (a street seamstress, a fruit seller, and an auto-rickshaw driver), make a pause in their tasks and go together in an evening outing, enjoying their friendship and the simple pleasures of life.

At the end of the video, they resume their work, and the rickshaw driver picks up Ritviz himself.

The three women are played by the actresses Rytasha Rathore, Dimple Paul, and Veronica Vanij.
