Na bazm apni, na saaqi apna, na shishaa apna, na jaam apna;
Agar yahi hai nizaam-i-hasti to GALIB, zindagi ko salam apna.

bazm=mahfil
nizami-i-hasti=zindagi ka kanoon

It has been close to my hearth, since I started understanding languages.

Khamoshi”( Silence) in 1969. The film had some great music and some memorable lyrics. One of the songs talks about love…how it can just be felt and not defined…

Humne dekhi hai un aankhon ki mehakti khushboo
haath se chhoo ke ise rishton ka ilzaam na do
sirf ehsaas hai ye, rooh se mehsoos karo
pyaar ko pyaar hi rehne do, koi naam na do

I have sensed the fragrance in those looks
Cannot be touched…can only be felt
A feeling ..let the soul comprehend it
Let love just be love…and have no other name!

pyaar koi bol nahi, pyaar awaaz nahi
ek khamoshi hai, sunti hai kaha karti hai
na ye bujhti hai na rukti hai, na thehri hai kahin
noor ki boond hai, sadiyon se baha karti hai
sirf ehsaas hai ye, rooh se mehsoos karo
pyaar ko pyaar
hi rehne do, koi naam na do

Love isn’t words, it isn’t a sound…
It’s silence that listens and speaks…
Can’t be extinguished, cannot be curbed
Never ends…just flows on…
A drop of light…illuminating the world forever
A feeling… let the soul comprehend it
Let love just be love…and have no other name!

muskuraahat si khili rehti hai, aankhon mein kahin
aur palkon pe ujale se, jhuke rehte hain
honth kuchh kehte nahi, kaanpte honthon pe magar
kitne khaamosh se afsaane, ruke rehte hain
sirf ehsaas hai ye, rooh se mahsoos karo
pyaar ko pyaar hi rehne do, koi naam na do.

A smile seems to always lurk in the eyes
On the lids there is a shadow of light
No words escape from the lips
Which quiver, wanting to tell many a silent tale
A feeling… let the soul comprehend it
Let love just be love…and have no other name!
