Aao Na

This poem is inspired by the song ‘Aao Na’ from the movie ‘Kyun, ho gaya na!’ starring green-eyed porcelain goddess Aishwarya Rai when she was dating her co-star Vivek Oberoi in 2004. The song is melodious and beautiful. The lyrics and language are excellent, but of course, you will need to have some understanding of Hindi because the translation really does not do justice to it. I hope you enjoy my poem and the song as well.

Aao Na – Ruelha

Come to me, my sweetheart.
The breeze and air wants to impart.
Some sweetness to this weather.
The birds are singing melodies and blowing away feathers.
Everything around us is so romantic.
All around us, the scenery is ecstatic.
All are singing in loving intoxication.
Come here to me in sweet dedication.

I don't understand this fire burning within my soul.
Strangely gentle and cool; it makes me feel whole.
I'm now consciously aware of my breaths.
And within my heartbeats, I can feel the depths.
What is this that is happening to me?
I am feeling all these things; am I crazy?
All are singing in loving intoxication.
Come here to me in sweet dedication.

My body and soul of these changes are aware.
The air around us create a loving atmosphere.
All around us, there is loving intoxication.
But you and me, we are filled with hesitation.
Why is it that only we are silent?
Shouldn't we sing along and be compliant?
Speak those words that I long to hear.
Dig them out of your heart and come to me near.

Tell me all those things that I wish to hear.
When there's love between us, why the fear?
Come towards me; move closer and closer.
So you can feel my heartbeats go faster and faster.
Everything around is so romantic.
All around us, the scenery is ecstatic.
All are singing in loving intoxication.
Come here to me in sweet dedication.

Come to me, sweet one. Come here.
The air around has created a loving atmosphere.
All around us, there is loving intoxication.
But you and me, we are filled with hesitation.
Why is it that only we are silent?
Shouldn't we sing along and be compliant?
Tell me all those things I want to hear.
Whisper those sweet nothings in my ear.

Lyrics and Translation:

Goonji si hai sari fiza jaise bajti ho shehnaiyanThere are echoes of the flute playing in the air
Leherati hai mehki hawa gungunati hai tanhaiyanThe fragranced breeze is flowing and the silence is humming
Sab gaate hai, sab hi madhosh haiEyeryone is singing and intoxicated
Hum tum kyun khamosh haiThen why are we both silent?
Saaz-e-dil chhedo na, chup ho kyun gaaon naPlay the tune of the heart and sing along
Aao na, aao na, aao na, aao naPlease come, please come, please come, please come
Tann mann mein kyun aise behti huyi thandi si ik aag haiWhy is there a cold fire burning in my body and soul
Saanson mein hai kaisi yeh raagini, dhadkan mein kya raag haiWhat is this tune in my breaths and in my heartbeats
Yeh hua kya humein humko samjhao naExplain to me what has happened to me
Yeh hua kya humein humko samjhao naExplain to me what has happened to me
Sab gaate hai, sab hi madhosh haiEyeryone is singing and intoxicated
Hum tum kyun khamosh haiThen why are we both silent?
Dil mein joh baatein hai hothon pe laao naBring the words of your heart on your lips
Aao na, aao na, aao na, aao naPlease come, please come, please come, please come
Ab koi doori na uljan koi, bas ek ikraar haiNow there’s no problem or distance, there’s just confession
Ab na kahin hum na tum ho kahin, bas pyar hi pyar haiNow we both are nowhere, there’s just love
Sun sako dhadkane itne paas aao naCome so close to me that you can hear my heartbeats
Sun sako dhadkane itne paas aao naCome so close to me that you can hear my heartbeats
Sab gaate hai, sab hi madhosh haiEyeryone is singing and intoxicated
Hum tum kyun khamosh haiThen why are we both silent?
Ab mere sapno pe tum hi tum chhaho naNow you spread yourself all around my dreams
Aao na, aao na, aao na, aao naPlease come, please come, please come, please come
Goonji si hai sari fiza jaise bajti ho shehnaiyanThere are echoes of the flute playing in the air
Leherati hai mehki hawa gungunati hai tanhaiyanThe fragranced breeze is flowing and the silence is humming
Sab gaate hai, sab hi madhosh haiEyeryone is singing and intoxicated
Hum tum kyun khamosh haiThen why are we both silent?
Saaz-e-dil chhedo na, chup ho kyun gaaon naPlay the tune of the heart and sing along
Aao na, aao na, aao na, aao naPlease come, please come, please come, please come

    1. Well said Fred. Attraction is the beginning. It’s important. But, if one does not graduate to a deeper connection and intimate bonds, attraction and lust will not be able to sustain a successful and fruitful relationship.It has to go beyond that.
