Where shall they carry me, the winds, the winds?
Who knows where they carry
Neither I know, nor you.

Hawayein (Hindi: हवाएँ, Urdu: ہوائیں), "Winds", is a song featured in the 2017 Hindi romantic comedy film "When Harry met Sejal"
This title imitates the title of the 1989 US romantic comedy film "When Harry Met Sally".

The video clip shows the two main protagonists, Harinder or "Harry" (the Indian actor Shah Rukh Khan), a tourist guide, and Sejal (the Indian actress Anushka Sharma), a client, while they travel across Europe searching a ring she claims to have lost.
During their travel, they fall in love with each other.

The song's music was composed by the Indian composer Pritam Chakraborty (also known as simply "Pritam"), and the lyrics were written by the Indian poet and lyricist Irshad Kamil.

The singer in the video clip is the famous and versatile Indian interpreter Arijit Singh.
