I was humming one of my favorite songs yesterday, when I actually paid very close attention to some of its lyrics. I hate it ever since! The song is

तुझ से नाराज़ नही ज़िन्दगी...

I know a lot of us love this song to bits. The reason I hate it now is this line...

मुस्कुराऊँ कभी, तो लगता है...
जैसे होठों पे, क़र्ज़ रखा है...

Rough translation:
Sometimes when I smile
It feels like a debt on my lips

This is simply impossible!

A smile can never be a debt! It is one of the purest forms of expressing joy, of bringing joy, and transforming hearts and minds!

Just smile, and you instantly feel better!
Smile at stranger and you have a new friend!
See a baby smiling and you forget all your own worries

There is nothing new in this post :)

Just wanted to share a smile!

And lots of wonderful quotes about smiles here!
Do click on the link, its wonderful!

Sharing a good smile..

and in the song he/she (both versions) are talking about the wry smile that one gets in defeat, being let down or simply helplessness in a situation...I guess.

i didnt get it... wont it make more sense if it said that the more we smile, the more we can pay off the debt or something..

@Vrij, :) back at ya!

@ceedy, yeah, i suppose it can be interpreted that way when we look at the context.

@harini, yeah, it would make more sense if that's what it said, but it doesn't. Which is why i did not like it.

I used to always think k it means that..

uske life mein itne bad times aa chuke hai k abhi woh jab smile karta hai toh he keeps thinking ke next moment he has to repay this smile with a, he can't even smile freely..
[he also says that usne kabhi socha nahi tha ki usko muskuraane k karz utarne honge :D ]

and so woh zindagi se naraaz nahi, hairaan hai..

does that make ANY sense :-D I've lived with this interpretation since forever! This songs special, it was one of the 1st ones i ever performed :)

anyway, I loved the way u said,
"There is nothing new in this post"

@express, yeah, it makes sense. And that is kind of what I understood from it too. My only issue with it is a smile is such a wonderful thing. Dil khol ke smile karo, why feel that if you smile bad times are right around the corner.
BTW, are you Samby's friend?

Express said...

Well, yes. Smiles reassure us that this is not the end of the day; so what you said exactly :-)

and yea, all over FB yea :D
But I just deactivated my account; exams aa gaya and I NEED to jhadogy the dhul from my book covers.
so, cya around :)
