nahii.n udaas nahii.n
bas ek chup sii lagii hai

Note: I translated this one.

A quietness has taken over, No, not sadness
Somewhere, my breath is trapped, no, not sadness
A quietness has taken over

Not extraordinary, but a life that
is not splendid
the one that I have found
is plenty.
No, not sadness
A quietness has taken over

I was given dawn, this night too, also the day, but
I am the one who chose the evening
I am the one
who chose evening
No, not sadness
Just, a quietness has taken over

That story that I spoke of,
I wrote,
Today, I
heard it from myself
No, not sadness
A quietness has taken over

Tum pukar lo by Gulzar

Tum pukar lo, tumhara intezaar hai,
tum pukar lo.

Khwaab chun rahi hai raat, beqarar hai
Tumhara intezaar hai
Tum pukar lo

Honth pe liye hue dil ki baat hum
Jaagte rahenge aur kitni raat hum
Muqtasar si baat hai, tum se pyaar hai
Tumhara intezaar hai
Tum pukar lo

Dil bahal tho jaayega is khayal se
Haal mil gaya tumhara apne haal se
Raat ye qaraar ki beqarar hai
Tumhara intezaar hai

Tum pukar lo

Connect with me, I am awaiting you,
Connect with me.

The night is choosing its’ dreams, it is restless
Awaiting you
Connect with me.

Carrying on my lips the thoughts of my heart
How many more nights will I stay awake?
It is a concise matter, I love you
Awaiting you
Connect with me.

My heart will be entertained with this thought
That at least our circumstances met
This night of rest is restless
Awaiting you
