missing you like hamesha... new vm

a few pictures of barun sobti are coming in from his calcutta shoot for 22 yards. the fresh new shots reached a trigger somewhere. it's been almost four years since ipk's last day, 30 nov 2012. perhaps time does make you almost forget things. especially if it hurts unbearably to remember.

but those shots got me. i felt that familiar ache. a restlessness. the only way to tackle it was to make a vm. obsessively... staying up the whole night. finding glitches. trying to fix them. not caring the pictures aren't hd quality. how wonderfully they vibe with a song. so many memories.

a while ago, i made a vm using ye dooriyan... these distances... these separations. just wanted to make another one. felt right.

i hope you enjoy. would love to hear what you thought. please do leave a comment. always more fun when we chat.

basic translation courtesy dreamy-songs blogspot.sg and me... still not sure if i got the meaning of fanah right.

yeh dooriyan

yeh dooriyan

yeh dooriyan
these distances

in raahon ki dooriyan
the distance of paths

nigahon ki dooriyan
distance between our gazes

humrahon ki dooriyan
distance between companions

fanah ho sabhi dooriyan
may all distances be annihilated

kyun koi paas hai
why somebody's close

door hai kyun koi
why somebody's far

jaane na koi yahan pe
nobody knows

aa raha paas ya door mein jaa raha
am i moving closer or apart

janun na mein hoon kahan pe
don't know where i am

kabhi hua yeh bhi
there was a time

khali rahon pe bhi tu tha mere saath
you were with me even in empty streets

kabhi tujhe milke lauta mera dil yeh khali khali haath
sometimes, even after meeting you, my heart was not content

yeh bhi hua kabhi, jaise hua abhi
sometimes, just like now, this also happened

tujhko sabhi mein paa liya
that i met you in everyone

tera mujhe, kar jaati hai dooriyan
this distance makes me closer to you

satati hain dooriyan
the distance make me suffer

tarsati hain dooriyan
the distance makes me long

fanah ho sabhi dooriyan
may all distances be annihilated

kaha bhi na maine
didn't i tell you

nahi jeena maine, tu jo na mila
without you, i don't want to live

tujhe bhule se bhi, bola na mein yeh bhi chahun fasla
even unknowingly, i don't want any distance with you

bas fasla rahein
let only that distance remain

banke kasak jo kahen
which becomes an echo and says

ho aur chahat yeh jawan
that may our love blossom

teri meri mit jaani hai dooriyan
the distance between us must be erased

begani hai dooriyan
distance feels strange

hat jani hai dooriyan
distance should be gone

fanah ho sabhi dooriyan
may all distances be annihilated
