From my childhood, I loved this song very much. this always helped me to live a better life and still inspires me. the song comes from a 1983 Bollywood movie sung by Lata Mangeshkar. I have provided the lyrics translation in the English for those who don’t understand the Hindi.

Zindagi pyaar ka geet hai
Ise her dil ko gana padega..(x2)
Zindagi ghum ka sagar bhi hai
Hanske us paar jana padega..

Life is a song of love
Every heart will have to sing it..
Life is also an ocean of sorrow
(We) will have to cross it happily

Jiska jitna ho aanchal yahaan per
Usko saugaat utni milegi
La la la.. la la la..
La la la la la la la..
Jiska jitna ho aanchal yahaan per
Usko saugaat utni milegi

As much one will need…
(One) will get as much happiness
[Sounds La la la la..]

Phool jeevan mein gar na khite to
Kaanton se bhi nibhana padega..
Zindagi pyaar ka geet hai
Ise her dil ko gana padega..

If (we) don’t have flowers in (our) path
(Then we) will have to manage with thorn too
Life is the song of love
Which every heart will have to sing

Hai agar door manzil to kya
Raasta bhi hai mushkil to kya
La la la.. la la la..
La la la la la la la..
Hai agar door manzil to kya
Raasta bhi hai mushkil to kya

So what if the destination is far away
So what if the way is damn tough

Raat taaron bhari na mile to
Dil ka deepak jalana padega
Zindagi pyaar ka geet hai
Ise her dil ko gana padega..

If (we) can’t get the night full of stars
Then (we) will have to burn the lamp of heart
Life is a song of love
Which every heart will have to sing

Zindagi ek paheli bhi hai
Sukh dukh ki saheli bhi hai…
La la la.. la la la..
La la la la la la la..
Zindagi ek paheli bhi hai
Sukh dukh ki saheli bhi hai..

Life is also a dilemma
Also a friend in happiness and sadness

Zindagi ek vachan bhi to hai
Jise sabko nibhana padega
Zindagi pyaar ka geet hai
Ise her dil ko gana padega..
Zindagi ghum ka sagar bhi hai
Hanske us paar jana padega..

Life is also a promise
Which everyone will have to fulfill
Life is the song of love
Which every heart will have to sing

my musing on the topic:

This song talks about life. what life is and how we are expected to live it. this is a bitter fact that life is not easy and we need to be clear about this fact. this very uneasiness makes it interesting and challenging for us. a person who is ready to face new challenges and knows that this will make him a better person will never demand any easiness from life.

song talks that life is a song of love and every heart has to sing it. in the case of music we can refuse to sing a song if we are not interesting but in the case of life there is no devoid we have to sing it anyhow, there is no escape. we can’t say that I don’t know how to sing.

next it talks that life is also an ocean of sorrow and we all need to face it. we can not ignore it. the more we ignore the more sorrow we’ll have in our lives so it’s better to accept it and confront it with courage. we need to welcome every pain from life wholeheartedly. this very attitude will transform our life.

there is no limitation of happiness and sorrow in life. we can get as much as we want. it all depends on us. we can make it full of happiness or sorrow depending upon our approach towards life.

we can’t have happiness all the time. there will be the time when we need to face sorrow too. in fact, there is no sorrow or happiness in life but we create differences in this. whatever pleases us becomes happiness but if we do not like sth about life then it takes the form of sorrow. all these differences are man made. life is very straight forward, it doesn’t bring anything with it.

we need not be worried if the target is too far, we just need to go on. there is immense joy in going on. the whole happiness resides in the going on process rather than in the destination so the path is very important.

the central idea of the song is that life can’t be same all time. sometimes there will be the moments of ecstasy but other time gloom will also be there. we have to accept both. it is quite natural to accept happiness but if could manage to accept sadness too then we will have a different life. there will be no complaint towards life in that case.

Daily Prompt: This is your song!
