Only You {Tum Se Hi}

So, this song that inspired me is from a very cute (2007)movie that I really like. It’s very cheesy and unrealistically Bollywood. But that’s exactly what I like…..a romantic fantasy dream world. Reality sucks anyway. When I watch a movie, I want to see and feel those pink effervescent bubbles!

So, the actors in this movie are really cute and hot and everything in between. I had the privilege of flying them several times on numerous occasions, both as a couple as well as individually. I remember several distinct observations about their behaviour on board that would really attract a lot of attention, if made public. But, I prefer to maintain my silence out of respect for all those involved.

Shahid Kapoor is a dreamboat. He was always so cute. Back then, he was dating Kareena Kapoor and now he’s (arranged) married and a father of two. I should have made a move sooner, eh? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…πŸ€£πŸ˜œπŸ˜› I remember on one of the evening Mumbai-Delhi flights, he was somewhere in between seated in Business Class and he himself came up front without pressing the call bell. He timidly asked me if I could serve him sooner than the others because he was extremely hungry. So I took down his preference. I still remember, he chose the Indian Vegetarian option which was Shahi Paneer gravy and some rice. He’s a vegetarian, you see. He didnt want the soup and the rest of the fanfare. ….Well, I wanted to tell him I’d be willing to serve him all my life….but, hmm…..lost opportunities πŸ˜…πŸ€£πŸ™ƒπŸ˜œπŸ˜…

Today, I am going to write a poem in memory of this song. Let’s see what I come up with….

Only You
Been calling your name.
All in vain.
I know things aren't the same.
But without you I feel pain.
My every breath,
reveals the depth.
Of delusional fiction.
And things in that section.
No loss, no gain.
Life remains the same.
It's all you.
Only you.

You are the source.
Of joy, and remorse.
What a combination,
of emotional frustration. 
You are my desire.
Setting my body on fire.
The walls of sanity,
are crumbling within me.
It's all because of you.
What is this you do?
It's all you.
Only you.

In your absence,
I create your presence.
I see you everywhere. 
Be it here or there.
I can hear your distinct voice.
In silence and in all the noise.
That ring that we wore.
Commitment we swore.
Joined as one soul.
This I cannot control. 
It's all you.
Only you.

I see your tired eyes.
Some reason, them you despise.
And the charm of your hair.
To me will forever be there.
Everything in me,
keeps craving to see.
Ecstatically longing,
return to be belonging.
Even when you don't speak.
there's always a certain mystique. 
It's all you.
Only you.

I'm searching for you.
In all that I do.
I don't know the way.
I don't understand what you do and say.
But, I do know this. 
Irrespective of the twists.
To only you.
This heart is true.
Because everyday it dreams of you.
Even through a glimpse of my tattoo.
It's all you.
Only you.

Been calling your name.
All in vain.
I know things aren't the same.
But without you I feel pain.
Please drop by just once again.
Thinking of you I'm going insane.
However long it takes,
You know I'll still wait.
No loss, no gain.
Life remains the same.
It's still all you.
Forever only you.

Here’s a video of the original song. It’s so romantic. He’s just imagining her presence. I highly recommend you watch this video.
Tum se Hi - Original Song Lyrics with my excellent translation skillsπŸ˜…πŸ€£πŸ˜‰

Na hai yeh pana (This isn't a gain)
Na khona hi hai (this isn't even a loss)
Tera na hona, jaane (your absence, I don't understand)
Kyun hona hi hai (why, it's like your presence)
Tum Se Hi din hota hai, (with you only my day begins)
Surmayi shaam aati hai (the plesant evening comes)
Tum Se Hi, Tum Se Hi (only with you, only with you)
Har ghadi saans aati hai (every moment I breathe)
Zindagi kehlati hai, (my life gets meaningful)
Tum Se Hi, Tum Se Hi (with you only, with you only)
Na hai yeh pana (there's no gain here)
Na khona hi hai ( and no loss either)
Tera na hona, jaane ( your absence, I dont understand)
Kyun hona hi hai ( why, it's like your presence)
Aankhon mein aankhein teri, (your eyes are constantly in my eyes)
Baahon mein Baahen teri. (Your arms in my arms)
Mera na mujh mein kuch raha, (nothing that's mine is left within me)
Hua kya (what happened?)
Baaton mein baaten teri,(your talks are within my talks)
Raatein saugatein teri. (Nights, all your gifts)
Kyun tera sab yeh ho gaya, ( why has all of me become all yours?)
Hua kya (what happened?)
Mein kahin bhi jata hoon (wherever I go)
Tumse hi mil jata hoon(I meet yiu)
 Tumse hi tumse hi ( only through yiu; only through you)
Shoor mein khamoshi hai (in the noisy ruckus, there is silence)
Thodi se behoshi hai (there is a mild unconsciousness)
Tum se hi tum se hi (only through you; only through you)
Aadha sa wada (half a promise)
 kabhi Aadhe se zyada kabhi( sometimes more than half)
Jee chahe karlu is tarah(my heart wants to make it like this....)
 wafa ka (...of faithfulness)
 Chode na choote kabhi (even on leaving/separating, it does not seperate)
 Tode na tute kabhi (even on breaking, it does not break)
Jo dhaaga tumse jud gaya (the thread/chord that has been joined to you...)
wafa ka (....of faithfulness)
Mein Tera sarmaya hoon (I am all because of you)
 Jo bhi mein ban paya hoon (All that I have been able to become....)
Tumse hi tum se hi (is only through you, only through you)
Raste mil jaate hai (Roads, I find)
Manzile mil jaati hai (destinations, I find)
Tumse hi tum se hi (only through you; only through you)
Na hai yeh pana (Neither is this of any gain)
 Na khona hi hai (nor is this a loss)
Tera Na hona jane (incomprehensible, your absence...)
Kyun hona hi hai (why is it still your presence?)
-song by Mohit Chauhan


  1. I’ve seen a lot of Bollywood movies, years ago, but I missed Jab We Met. The last movie I watched was one a fried insisted I see about a year ago. Before that I hadn’t watched a movie since 2013 when we were watching movies in French before we went to France for 5 weeks. Did you know a lot of movies and TV shows are filmed in New Mexico? We call our film industry Tamalewood.

    1. Which was the movie your friend suggested? I don’t know if you like drama….but most of Bollywood is just infused with oodles of drama…it’s not everyone’s cup of tea….to watch a song and dance routine every few minutes….but I find it sooooo fun…..
      I have watched a very few French movies that aired on TV eons ago….I think one was named Amelie….I don’t remember the rest….
      Oh yes….a lot of our Bollywood movies have scenes that are shot abroad….especially the songs….you know….for the fancy backgrounds….
      Suddenly theyll be dancing in snow….suddenly theyll be dancing in front of the Eiffel and suddenly they’ll be doing some classical moves on a beach in Bali…..πŸ˜œπŸ˜œπŸ˜œπŸ˜œπŸ˜œπŸ™ƒπŸ™ƒπŸ™ƒ

      1. The move was Snatch, directed by Guy Ritchie: I like the song and dance in Bollywood movies being a musician and dancer myself. But it’s disconcerting when one scene has a couple happily dancing and singing to together, and then next scene the guy pushes the woman on the roof of a building killing her. It’s like where did that come from?

      1. ah—what would it hurt! ???? Pick a tune or two to practice on, before publishing one! For years I made up various stanzas to the song…THE YELLOW ROSE OF TEXAS…..a simpler tune is POPEYE THE SAILOR MAN—–which one can also sing limericks to, if properly written!

        1. Aah….that simplifies it a bit JonDa….
          I don’t play an instrument so making up a tune would be difficult but writing lyrics and following a known tune is easy…..seems like a fun idea…..🀩🀩🀩
