    zarā qatra kahīñ aaj agar ubhartā hai

    samundaroñ ke lahje meñ baat kartā hai

    now ever if a trifling droplet happens to appear

    like the mighty oceans its head it seeks to rear

    khulī chhatoñ ke diye kab ke bujh ga.e hote

    koī to hai jo havāoñ ke par katartā hai

    the lamps on open terraces would long have been erased

    the might of winds someone is who manages to shear

    sharāfatoñ yahāñ koī ahmiyat nahīñ

    kisī kuchh na bigāḌo to kaun Dartā hai

    decency has little value it does not get respect

    Until harm is caused to them people do not fear

    ye dekhnā hai ki sahrā bhī hai samundar bhī

    vo merī tishna-labī kis ke naam kartā hai

    ….

    ….

    tum aa ga.e ho to kuchh chāñdnī bāteñ hoñ

    zamīñ pe chāñd kahāñ roz roz utartā hai

    how often does the moon condescend to come to earth

    let us talk of love and joy now that you are here

    zamīñ kaisī vakālat ho phir nahīñ chaltī

    jab āsmāñ se koī faisla utartā hai

    however you defend the earth it is of no avail

    when a judgement is imposed from the heavens clear

    zara sa qatra kahin aaj agar ubharta hai

    samundaron hi ke lahje mein baat karta hai

    now ever if a trifling droplet happens to appear

    like the mighty oceans its head it seeks to rear

    khuli chhaton ke diye kab ke bujh gae hote

    koi to hai jo hawaon ke par katarta hai

    the lamps on open terraces would long have been erased

    the might of winds someone is who manages to shear

    sharafaton ki yahan koi ahmiyat hi nahin

    kisi ka kuchh na bigaDo to kaun Darta hai

    decency has little value it does not get respect

    Until harm is caused to them people do not fear

    ye dekhna hai ki sahra bhi hai samundar bhi

    wo meri tishna-labi kis ke nam karta hai

    ….

    ….

    tum aa gae ho to kuchh chandni si baaten hon

    zamin pe chand kahan roz roz utarta hai

    how often does the moon condescend to come to earth

    let us talk of love and joy now that you are here

    zamin ki kaisi wakalat ho phir nahin chalti

    jab aasman se koi faisla utarta hai

    however you defend the earth it is of no avail

    when a judgement is imposed from the heavens clear
