A song that works like a light at the end of a tunnel with its uplifting and soothing words. Live fully and be fulfilled, the theme of the film, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (You live only once) is encapsulated in this very song. Here is my attempt at translating Bollywood’s que sera sera.

Original Lyrics-Khwabon Ke Parindey

Udein, khule aasaman mein khwabon ke parindey
Udein, dil ke jahaan main khaabon ke parinday
Oho, kya pata, jaayenge kahaan
Khule hain jo par, kahe yeh nazar
Lagta hai ab hain jaage hum
Fikrein jo thi, peechhe reh gayi
Nikle unse aage hum
Hawaon mein beh rahi hai zindagi
Yeh hum se keh rahi hai zindagi
Oho.. ab to, jo bhi ho so ho..

Ude, khule aasaman mein khwabon ke parindey
Ude, dil ke jahaan mein khwabon ke parindey
Oho, kya pata, jayenge kahaan
Kisi ne chhua toh yeh hua
Phirte hain mehke mehke hum
Khoye hain kahin baatein nayi
Jab hain aise behke hum
Hua hai yoon ke dil pighal gaye
Bas ek pal mein hum badal gaye
Oho.. ab to, jo bhi ho so ho..

Roshni mili
Ab raah mein hai ek dilkashi si barsi
Har khushi mili
Ab zindagi pe hai zindagi si barsi
Ab jeena hum ne seekha hai
Yaad hai kal, aaya tha wo pal
Jisme jaadoo aisa tha
Hum ho gaye jaise naye
Woh kal jaane kaisa tha
Kahe yeh dil ki jaa udhar hi tu
Jahan bhi leke jaaye aarzoo
Oho, ab toh…
Jo bhi ho so ho..

Translation of Khwabon Ke Parindey by bollywoodtarjuma

Dream birds soar
in the open skies
in the world living in my eyes
Don’t know,
where they will go

Fresh-winged and finally awake,
flying past all worries and cares,
breathing in the life,
that whispers through the breeze,
whatever will be,
will be..

Someone’s perfumed touch,
envelops me,
as I walk fragrance-drenched
all senses impaled,
lost for words and worlds,
melting and evolving,
a new life
a new heart
that tells me now,
whatever will be,
will be..

I found the light,
on the road paved with grace,
in the life breathing happiness.
Now I know how to live.
As I remember the moment of magic,
that went past
birthing me again,
as my heart fluttered its moth-wings,
ready to chase the flaming desire,
knowing well,
whatever will be,
will be..
