about

Majhdhar. A boatman's song that speaks of finding optimism and courage, even in the toughest of times and the stormiest of seas.

lyrics

Saagar ki leheron mein

gote khaati naav hai.

Duur hai kinara iska,

duur iska gaanv hai.

Keheta hai maanjhi iska,

jo hua so theek hai.

Duur ho kinara chahe,

aasmaan nazdeek hai.


Khaare se iss paani mein bhi

ghulti kuch mithas hai.

Toote girte taare ke bhi

mann mein koi aas hai.

Phike-phike baadlon ko

aatishee ab saaz hai.

Khaali se iss samaa mein

bharta tufaan saans hai.


Andheri raatein bhi

jugnuon ki raas hai.

Dhalte huye suraj mein bhi

bharta rang palaash hai.

Maanjhi ko na ab kabhi

chhor ki talaash hai.

Duur ho kinara chahe,

aasmaan to paas hai.


Khaare se iss paani mein bhi

ghulti kuch mithas hai.

Toote girte taare ke bhi

mann mein koi aas hai.

Phike-phike baadlon ko

aatishee ab saaz hai.

Khaali se iss samaa mein

bharta tufaan saans hai.


Aa​ ​re maanjhi aajaa.

Aa​ ​re maanjhi aajaa.

Chhute kinare aa.


Na re paani kaara.

Na re paani kaara.

Ruthe sitaare na.


Aa​ ​re maanjhi aajaa.

Aa​ ​re maanjhi aajaa.

Na re paani kaara.

Na re paani kaara.


Translation:

In the waves of the sea

the boat is diving today.

Its shore, its home,

now far away.

But the boatman is singing,

Whatever happened, let it be.

Even though the shore is far,

the horizon is now closer to me.


Even in this salty water

a sweetness is beginning to blend.

Even the falling, fading star

carries a wish in its heart,

till the very end.

The faint clouds,

with lightening’s music,

are now coming alive.

And into the empty vistas

the raging storm

is breathing a new life.


Even in the darkest nights

the fireflies continue to dance.

Even the setting sun looks like

the beautiful flower, palaash.

And the boatman is no more

searching for the shore.

For though it is far away

the horizon is now close.


Even in this salty water

a sweetness is beginning to blend.

Even the falling, fading star

carries a wish in its heart,

till the very end.


Come, oh boatman, come.

You have forever left those shores.

No, the water isn’t murky or dark.

and the stars are not angry anymore.
