Subject: That Evening Was Strange
This is one of my most favorite songs from Hindi movie Khamoshi(means:silence).

See video here

The lyrics were penned down by my favorite lyricist Gulzar and song was sung by my favorite singer Kishore Kumar. See how you respond to a Hindi Song!


Gulzar wrote:
Woh shaam kuch ajeeb thi
There was something strange about that evening,
Yeh shaam bhi ajeeb hai
Just as with this one
Woh kal bhi paas paas thi, woh aaj bhi qareeb hai
She was close to me yesterday, she is near me today as well
Woh shaam kuch ajeeb thi
There was something strange about that evening

Jhuki hui nigaaho.N mei.N, kahin mera khayaal tha
In her lowered gaze, perhaps there was a thought of me
Dabi dabi ha.Nsii mein ik, haseen saa gulaal tha
In the suppression of her smile, there was a burst of beautiful color
Main sochta tha, mera naam gungunaa rahi hai woh
I used to think that she was singing my name
Na jaane kyo.N laga mujhe, ke muskuraa rahi hai woh
I don’t know why it seemed to me as if she is smiling
Woh shaam kuch ajeeb thi
There was something strange about that evening

Mera khayaal hai abhi jhuki hui nigaaho.N mei.N
Now thoughts of me are in her shy, lowered gaze
Khuli hui hansi bhi hai, dabi hui si chaah mein
Even though she is laughing openly, there is a desire hidden
Mai.N jaanta hoo.N, meraa naam gungunaa rahi hai woh
I know that she is singing my name
Yehi khayaal hai mujhe, ke saath aa rahi hai woh
It appears to me that she is coming with me
Woh shaam kuch ajeeb thi
There was something strange about that evening


Glossary:

shaam: evening; ajeeb: strange; qareeb: close, near; jhuka: lowered; khayaal: thought; ha.Nsii: laughter; gulaal: color [like those thrown during the festival of holi]; muskuraanaa: to smile; khula: open; chaah: want, desire;
