Kisi ne poocha mujhse,

Itna hansty kaise ho?

      Kya bahut khush ho ya,

      Koi gham chhupaty ho?

Ik pal ko socha maine,

Fir hans ker kaha!

      Nahi mere dost,

      Ye sirf hansi nahi hai,

Ye mera vo vaada hai, 

Jo kia tha maine khud se kabhi,

      Hansungy aur hansaungy,

      Jab tak main jiyungy,

Gham chahe kaisa bhi ho,

Ankh se ansoo na tapkaungy!

      Gar kisi ko khushi de sakun,

     To gham me bhi muskuraungy!!


Someone asked me,

How do you manage to laugh so much?

         Are you delighted,

         Or hiding some sorrows?

I thought for a while,

Then laughed and said,

         No, my friend,

        This is not just laughter,

This is my promise

Which I had to myself once,

        I will laugh and make people laugh,

        As long as I am alive,

No matter how sad it is,

Tears will not drop from my eyes!

           If I can give happiness to someone,

           So I will smile even in sorrow!!
