Jeene Laga Hoon (Hindi: जीने लगा हूँ, Urdu: جینے لگا ہوں) "I Have Started to Live", is a song from the 2013 Hindi romantic comedy-drama film "Ramaiya Vastavaiya".

The film is about the love story of Ram, a rich boy son of émigrés (played by the Indian actor Girish Kumar), and Sona, a modest and traditional Indian girl from Punjab (played by the Indian actress Shruti Haasan). The title of the film means "Lord Ram, you will come" in Telugu language, in an ironic reference to the main character's name.

The video clip shows how they start falling in love, among dreamy landscapes surrounded by painted clay horses, and funny domestic scenes.

The song is interpreted by the Pakistani male playback singer Atif Aslam and the Indian female playback singer Shreya Ghoshal. But their genders don't quite match the genders addressed in the lyrics: Atif sings most of the song, regardless of whether a male or a female is being addressed, and Shreya contributes mostly to the chorus.

The lyrics were written by the Indian lyricist Priya Saraiya (also known as Priya Panchal), and the music was composed by the Indian composer duo based in Mumbai Sachin-Jigar (Sachin Sanghvi and Jigar Saraiya), who also composed all the other songs in the movie.
