Aashiyan

Some songs turn out to be so meaningful that you want to sing them again and again and singing them makes you feel happy. Whenever I'm down, this song seems to cheer me up... gives me back the hope that I'm losing. It reminds me that the world is beautiful and that no matter how much evil or bad there may be, there is also some good in this world. Wait a minute... This reminds me of a quote by Samwise Gamgee in Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers:


"It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something...
That there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo... and it's worth fighting for. "

I really like what he said. I think we all can relate to this in some way or another. Well, hoping for a beautiful future, here's a song I really like from the movie Barfi:

Singer: Nickhil Paul George

Itni si hassi (Just a little smile)
Itni si khushi (Just a little happiness)
Itna sa tukda chand ka (Just a little piece of the moon)
Khwabon ke tinkon se (With the straws of dreams)
Chal banayen aashiyaan (Let's make a home)

Dabey dabey paon se (With suppressed-silent steps)
Aaye hauley hauley zindagi (Life comes in slowly)
Hothon pe kundi chadha ke hum taaley lagake (By putting a lock on our lips)
Chal gumsum taraane chupke chupke gaayen (Come, let's quietly sing wistful songs)
Aadhi aadhi baant le, aaja, dil ki yeh zameen (Let's share the space in this heart)
Thoda sa tera sa hoga, thoda mera bhi hoga (It'll be a little yours and a little mine, too)
...Apna yeh aashiyaan (...Our dream home)

Itni si hassi (Just a little smile)
Itni si khushi (Just a little happiness)
Itna sa tukda chand ka (Just a little piece of the moon)
Khwabon ke tinkon se (With the straws of dreams)
Chal banayen aashiyaan (Let's make a home)

Na ho chaar deewarein (There won't be any walls)
Phir bhi jharokhey khiley (But the windows will be wide open)
Baadalon ke ho pardey (The curtains will be made of clouds)
Shaakhein hara pankha jhaley (The green branches will be fanning us)
Na ho koi takraarein (There will be no fights)
Arre masti thahaake chaley (Fun and laughter will go on)
Pyar ke sikkon se mahine ka kharcha chaley (The month's ration will come from the coins of love)

Dabey dabey paon se (With suppressed-silent steps)
Aaye hauley hauley zindagi (Life comes in slowly)
Hothon pe kundi chadha ke hum taaley lagake (By putting a lock on our lips)
Chal gumsum taraane chupke chupke gaayen (Come, let's quietly sing wistful songs)
Aadhi aadhi baant le, aaja, dil ki yeh zameen (Let's share the space in this heart)
Thoda sa tera sa hoga, thoda mera bhi hoga (It'll be a little yours and a little mine, too)
...Apna yeh aashiyaan (...Our dream home)

Itni si hassi (Just a little smile)
Itni si khushi (Just a little happiness)
Itna sa tukda chand ka (Just a little piece of the moon)
Khwabon ke tinkon se (With the straws of dreams)
Chal banayen aashiyaan (Let's make a home)
