If you are the ocean
then I am a storm, a storm.
I am the paddle of your heart's boat,
the paddle.
You won't sail this boat by yourself in solitude,
not this boat by yourself.
A destination won't meet you without rower,
without a rower.
Come on, yes, come on, yes,
bring the waves of your succor and come on!
This union of yours and mine is bound to happen.

भला, कैसे टूटेंगे बंधन ये दिल के,

छुपोगे भँवर में तो छुपने  देंगे,
तो छुपने  देंगे
डुबो देंगे नैय्या तुम्हें ढूँढ लेंगे
तुम्हें ढूँढ लेंगे
बनाएँगे हम, बनाएँगे हम,
बनाएँगे तूफ़ान को एक दिन किनारा
हो रहेगा मिलन यह हमारा तुम्हारा
Well, how will they break, these bonds of the heart,
these bonds of the heart?
Wave with wave, having met, are not separated,
the waves, having met.
Should you hide in an eddy, I won't let you hide,
I won't let you hide
I will sink your boat and I will look for you,
and I will look for you.
One day we will turn,
we will turn the storm into a shore.
This union of yours and mine is bound to happen.

Tu Ganga Ki Mauj (Hindi: तू गंगा की मौज, Urdu: تُو گنگا کی مَوج) "You are the surge of the Ganges" is a song from the 1952 Hindi film "Baiju Bawra".

The song is about a singer in the times of the Mughal empire, on a quest to duel another court singer in order to avenge his father. Along the story, this singer, Baiju (played by the Indian actor Bharat Bhushan) meets his love Gauri, the daughter of a boatsman (played by the Indian actress and Urdu poet Meena Kumari).

The video clip shows Baiju standing on the shore of a river where Gauri is rowing on a boat. He courts her with his singing, while she appears touched and ashamed, and at some point she covers her face with her hands and is unable to continue rowing. Her discomfiture increases when the boat drifts close to Baiju and the whole village seems to join his love song.
Meena Kumari acted this scene masterfully, and Bharat Bhushan, even though he is not the actual singer, showed the rare musical sense he was reputed for.

The song revolves around the theme of boats, rowers, and the rivers Ganges and Jamuna, both very important rivers in India and of religious significance to Hindus. The Jamuna converges into the Ganges, the same as the two lovers who are also bound to unite.

The singer is the legendary Indian singer Mohhamed Rafi. There is a small female part when one of the village women joins Baiju's song, interpreted by the also legendary Indian playback singer Lata Mangeshkar, the rest is choral.
The lyrics were written by the Urdu poet Shakeel Badayuni, a famous contributor to Bollywood films and a celebrated ghazal author.
The music was composed by the great Indian composer Naushad Ali ("Naushad"). Naushad and Shakeel Badayuni formed a prolific and celebrated composer/lyricist duo.
