Kar Salaam

Wanted to put something more or less on the lines of the song pasted below.  Looks like we are approaching the end of 2008. This year by far, has been more educative than any other year i profundly remember in my life. For many reason cited and uncited. Heard this song on the way back from one such educative incident. But the words instantly struck a chord with me.

“Kho Jaana, Pa Jaana, Na Paana, Hai Jindagi Jaane Le
Bik Jaana, Loot Jaana, Bass Jaana Hai Jindagi Maan Le
Ho Ho Ho Karle Yakin, Jo Kal Gaya Woh Phir Se Aata Nahin
Ho Ho Ho Gujra Huva Jo Waqt Hai Woh Dastak Lagaata Nahin
Jo Aaj Hai Bass Wahi Hai Tera 
Ha Kya Teri Hasti Hai, Mitti Ki Basti Hai
Pal Mein Hi Ho Jaati Hai Yeh Fanaa
Kar Salaam ”

The above excerpt means –

“To lose , to gain, to not get , this is life.

To get sold, get looted and just going without a thing, this is life, accept.

Believe me, what has gone yesterday, doesnt come back.

The time that has gone past , doesnt leave behind any mark.

What you have today, is only yours

The smile on your face, the mud hut you live in

It all vanishes within a second. “



  1. “To lose , to gain, to not get , this is life.”

    I like it….what language is that?
