Maloom na tha/Din’t know

Jindagy ki raftaar,

 Itny tez hogy, 

          Ye maloom na tha!

 Kal hi to jindagy ki dopahar hui thi, 

 Aj hi sham ho jaegy,

            Ye maloom na tha!

 Subah se sham tak kyun bhage,

 Dukh me bhage lekin sukh me kyun bhage,

              Ye maloom na tha!

  Jinke lie bhagte rahe,

  Vo yun gum ho jaenge,

              Ye maloom na tha!

 Jindagy ki sham me,

Youn akele khade reh jaenge,

                Ye maloom na tha!


Didn’t know the pace of life, 

Will be so fast,

         Didn’t know that!

Yesterday was the afternoon of life,

It will be evening today,

          Didn’t know that!

Why ran from morning to evening,

Ran in sorrow but why ran in happiness also,

            Didn’t know that!

For whom we ran,

They will be gone,

               Didn’t know that!

In the evening of life,

Will be left alone,

                Didn’t know that!
