Jab Koi Baat Bigad Jaaye

This is one of the most beautiful Bollywood songs that hint at the practicality of marriage in a romantic way. The movie ‘Jurm’ was released in 1991. Vinod Khanna, the reigning star of that time is no longer among us, while Menakshi Seshadri is my mum’s age. She lives with her family in Texas away from the limelight. Most love songs are idealistic or overtly impractical; and most souls are too tepid to interpret, reflect or reciprocate with such innocent and pure emotions. But this song portrays the tenets of a happy married life in a romantic yet practical approach. It speaks of companionship and fidelity. It reiterates how marriage is a union of the good and bad times combined. It does not paint a utopian portrait where everything is rosy. In fact, it anticipates all the hurdles that a married couple must pass and recognizes that only the strength of two in accord will see through the end of that racecourse. It hails the sanctity of marriage and of eternal, unconditional, infinite love and acceptance through the storms of life. If only people realized the true value in marriage and didn’t play around with the concept! Just like all my music-inspired poems, I suggest playing the song{which I have embedded below for your convenience} as you read; it truly elevates the experience!

When Things Don’t Go My Way {Jab Koi Baat Bigad Jaaye}poem by Ruelha

When things aren't going my way
And I've had a miserable day
The only thing I look forward to
Is return home and hug you
There may be no exchange of words
And though the cause and situation be unheard
I know I'll find solace in your arms
Though things may not reverse, I'll still feel strong
I may scream and yell
In pensive melancholy dwell
Yet, I know you'll understand
Gracefully abide with me and stand

By myself, I may fall and crumble
And though I appear strong, along life's paths, I may stumble
You know, I won't ask for help or directions
But deep within, I crave your protection
Just a warm embrace with your loving arms
Will empower me to face those storms
Sure, it won't make the rain go away
But, I'll still have you to return to anyway
That feeling of belonging
In this blinding world that's sprawling
I return to you, you are my home
Wherever you go is my comfort zone

My home is not a physical place
I dwell within the tranquility of your sweet embrace
Because only a house can be build by bricks
But a home sustains through love, there can be no tricks
You make me feel alive, like I can face the world
When complexities and challenges unfold
Though nothing outside changes
At home, I bathe in the Ganges
With you, I can weather any storm
Monetary, physical, relationships, liasons, whatever the form
So darling, please stand by me
I won't say it, but that's my plea

When I fall down and others jeer
I want you beside me, very near
And even if all lose respect for me
I know I can turn back to the one person who'll forever be
Cheering and rooting no matter what fate
Howevermuch they ridicule and debate
Despite all my flaws, you see them all
Admiration and appreciation at me you haul
Darling stand by me in the dark night
Like the others, don't begin to fight
Because if you turn against me too
I'll wither away and tip askew

Oh, all of these come crawling unto me
When I'm bathing in the lap of good fortune and luxury
But, when I'm in the pitts
In the dark night, don't tear me up to bits
In times of troubles, these friends 
Not one of them will recommend
In the darkness of my tribulation
You be my solace and jubilation
You know the difference between who I am and who I portray
Before you, openly all my secrets, they lay
Even when I'm wrong
Charmingly, you correct so I still feel strong 

I know I'll have divine protection
Through the grace of your dedication
I've dodged many afflictions
Your prayers boomeranged several situations
Through the dark night, you know you hold the key
Only you have access there; maintain my sanity
Irrespective the situation, I know you'll understand
Gracefully abide with me and hold my hand
The world may or may not care about me
But, I want to be the centre of your universe, just our family
Darling, you be my moonlight
Through the dark night

Jab Koi Baat Bigad Jaaye – Lyrics and English Translation

Jab koi baat bigad jaye
jab koi mushkil pad jaye
Tum dena sath mera, o humnava
Na koi hai, na koi tha
zindagi mein tumhare siva
Tum dena sath mera, o humnava

Whenever something goes wrong
Whenever faced by a storm/difficulty
Stand by me, oh my beloved
Neither there is, nor there was
Anyone other than you in my life
Stand by me, oh my beloved

Ho chandani jab tak raat
deta hai har koi sath
Tum magar andheron mein
na chhodna mera haath

Up untill there is moonlight in the night
Just about everybody stands by you
But you, even in the dark
Don't ever leave my hand{side}..

Vafadari ki woh rasmein
nibhaenge hum tum kasame
Ek bhi saans zindagi ki
jab tak ho apane bas mein

Those rituals of fidelity
Together we'll fulfill and stand by our vows
Till our last single breath of life
is within our control..

Jab koi baat bigad jaye
jab koi mushkil pad jaye
Tum dena sath mera, o humnava
Na koi hai, na koi tha
zindagi mein tumhare siva
Tum dena sath mera, o humnava

Whenever something goes wrong
Whenever faced by a storm/difficulty
Stand by me, oh my beloved
Neither there is, nor there was
Anyone other than you in my life
Stand by me, oh my beloved

Dil ko mere hua yakeen hum pehle bhi mile kahin	
Silsila yeh sadiyon ka koi aaj ki baat nahi	
Dil ko mere hua yakeen hum pehle bhi mile kahin	
Silsila yeh sadiyon ka koi aaj ki baat nahi	

My heart is confident that we've met somewhere before 
This is a story/episode of eras/ages and not something that is new/of today
My heart is confident that we've met somewhere much before
This is a story/episode of eras/ages and not something that is new/of today

Jab koi baat bigad jaye
jab koi mushkil pad jaye
Tum dena sath mera, o humnava
Na koi hai, na koi tha
zindagi mein tumhare siva
Tum dena sath mera, o humnava

Whenever something goes wrong
Whenever faced by a storm/difficulty
Stand by me, oh my beloved
Neither there is, nor there was
Anyone other than you in my life
Stand by me, oh my beloved
