Rataan Lambiyan

Captain Vikram Batra is played by Sidharth Malhotra in the movie Shershaa{translates as ‘LionKing’ or Braveheart} which is based on a real-life love story of a martyred Kargil hero. His fiancee(unmarried girlfriend) continues to live as his widow to date. The Kargil war between India and Pakistan was one of the worst I’ve ever witnessed in my time. It was gruesome and bone-chilling. Recounting how it began, and the fate of our poor soldiers makes me shirk in disgrace of humanity. No good ever comes from war. I pray that peace prevails. I bow down and salute the soldiers who risk their lives and sacrifice normalcy and a good family life for the sake of my freedom. I value my freedom a lot and I am well aware it does not come cheap! Jai Hind!

As you’ll notice in the video, the couple meet in their early college years at a time when we still had rotary-dial phones, STD phone booths, glass cola bottles and headphones. It was an innocent time when love was eternal. Sometimes, I wish cell phones were never created. A lot of filth and vanity has taken over through this medium. Anyway, that’s another topic for another day.

The song is in Punjabi. I don’t speak Punjabi. But, the lyrics are rather simple so I figured most of it along with some internet research. Sidharth Malhotra is my absolute favourite Bollywood guy. He looks soooooooo dreamy and cute. Look at him smile …intoxicating! And just like all my music-inspired poems, I suggest playing the song{which I have embedded below for your convenience} in the background as you read; it truly elevates the experience!

These Long Lonely Nights – Rataan Lambiyaan – poem by Ruelha

And now, we're becoming famous
More and more, we've become audacious
But, I still cannot stop
Let them all talk
Because I've got my gaze on you
And with this world and society, I've got nothing to do!

Everywhere you go
My dedicated heart follows
And even beyond this universe
From close proximity, we'll not disperse
Because my heart's set on you
Not just your physical appearance or anything that you do

But it recognizes you and craves
Your innermost essence, even beyond the grave
It's not just your intellect and the way you think
You imprinted upon my spirit, and for no one else I can blink
Where are you going, sweetheart? Don't go away, sweetheart
Don't leave like this; from me, please do not part

I really cannot survive without
On the character of my love, don't have any doubt
My heart will perpetually beat for you
Because this love between us is pure and true
Very few blessed souls get to witness
This feeling that encompasses beyond sweetness

And I shall live as yours forever
The world ridicules my decision to be unclever
But you are imbibed into my heart
And now, no one else can play that part
My love for you is unconditional, infinite, and eternal
Not united in this world, but I still feel your presence; it's paranormal

The twinkling stars in the skies
Reminds me of you and gives me butterflies
The twinkling stars in the skies
I'll never let anyone forget your sacrifice
The twinkling stars in the skies
Keeps you in my heart, forever alive

Ratan Lambiyan Lyrics with English Translation

Teri Meri Gallan Ho Gayi Mashoor
Kar Na Kabhi Tu Mujhe Najron Se Door

Talks About You and Me Have Become The Talk Of The Town
Don't Ever Let Yourself Out Of My Sight

Kithe Chali Ae Tu Kithe Chali Ae Tu
Kithe Chali Ae Kithe Chali Ae

Where Are You Going, You?
Where Are You Going?

Janda Ae Dil Ye To Jaandi Ae Tu
Tere Bin Main Na Rahun
Mere Bina Tu

My Heart Always Follows You
Without You, I Will Not Survive
Nor Can You (Survive) Without Me

Kithe Chaliye Tu
Kithe Chaliye Tu
Kithe Chaliye (Jaan Chaliye)

Where Are You Going, You?
Where Are You Going?
Where Are You Going? (Sweetheart)

Kaatun Kaise Raataan O Saawre
Jiya Nahi Jaata Sunn Baawre

How Do I Spend My Days And Nights?
Without You, I Cannot Live 

Ke Raataan Lambiyan Lambiyan Re
Kate Tere Sangeyan Sangeyan Re
Ke Raatan Lambiyan Lambiyan Re
Kate Tere Sangeyan Sangeyan Re

That These Long, Long Nights...
To Be Spent With You They Are Meant 
That These Long, Long Nights...
To Be Spent With You They Are Meant 

Cham Cham Cham Ambraan De Taare
Kehnde Ne Sajna
Tu Hi Chan Mere Is Dil Da
Man Le Ve Sajna

The Twinkling Twinkling Twinkling Stars
Are Saying, My Love
You Only Are The Moon Of This(MY) Heart
Believe Me, My Love

Tere Bina Mera Hove Na Gujara
Chadd Ke Na Jaavin Mainu
Tu Hi Hai Sahara

Without You I will Be Unable To Continue/Carry On
Don't Ever Leave Me And Go
You Only Are My Support

Kaatun Kaise Raatan Oh Saawre
Jiya Nahi Jaata Sunn Baawre

How Do I Spend My Days And Nights?
Without You, I Cannot Live 

Ke Raataan Lambiyan Lambiyan Re
Kate Tere Sangeyan Sangeyan Re
Ke Raataan Lambiyan Lambiyan Re
Kate Tere Sangeyan Sangeyan Re

That These Long, Long Nights...
To Be Spent With You They Are Meant 
That These Long, Long Nights...
To Be Spent With You They Are Meant 

Teri Meri Gall Ae Ho Gayi Mashoor
Kar Na Kabhi Tu Mainu Nazron Se Door
Piche Chali Ae Tere Piche Chali Ae
Tere Piche Chali Ae

Talks About You and Me Have Become The Talk Of The Town
Don't Ever Let Yourself Out Of My Sight
Behind You, I Am Walking. Behind You, I am Walking!
I Am Following You!

Janda Ae Dil Ye Toh Jandi Ae Tu
Tere Bina Main Na Rahu
Mere Bina Tu

My Heart Always Follows You
Without You, I Cannot Survive 
Nor Can You (Survive) Without Me

Kithe Chali Ae Tu
Kithe Chali Ae Tu
Kithe Chali Ae

Where Are You Going, You?
Where Are You Going, You?
Where Are You Going?

Kaatun Kaise Raatan Oh Saawre
Jiya Nahi Jata Sunn Baawre

How Do I Spend My Days And Nights?
I Cannot Live Without You

Ke Raataan Lambiyan Lambiyan Re
Kate Tere Sangeyan Sangeyan Re
Ke Raatan Lambiyan Lambiyan Re
Kate Tere Sangeyan Sangeyan Re

That These Long, Long Nights...
To Be Spent With You They Are Meant 
That These Long, Long Nights...
To Be Spent With You They Are Meant 

Ke Raataan Lambiyan Lambiyan Re
Kate Tere Sangeyan Sangeyan Re
Ke Raatan Lambiyan Lambiyan Re
Kate Tere Sangeyan Sangeyan Re

That These Long, Long Nights...
To Be Spent With You They Are Meant 
That These Long, Long Nights...
To Be Spent With You They Are Meant

  1. SMiLes Dear Rue So True

    Love That Is Eternal Is No

    “Real” Part of Instant

    Gratification Such
    A Strange And

    Deleterious Potential

    Brew for Any Animal including
    The Social Animal Human Of Course

    Now too

    And True For me no Smart Phone

    Until 2013 And Just Before
    i Turned 53 In the March

    of That Year
    Yet For me With
    Unrelenting Eye And
    Ear Pain Something About

    That iPhone 5 Retina Display

    Screen Allowed me to View At Least
    Parts of Colors of Nature Again Tolerating

    The Pain Once Again Hints of Beauty Starting

    To Break Through Yes A Technological Device

    And The Ability to Write Through Almost no

    Effective Use of Eyes and Ears

    A Truly Wonderful

    Tool to Connect
    to Others So Functionally
    Disabled in The Real World then

    However Back in The “Real World”
    Before i Turned 47 And Fell to So Much
    Illness Then When i Was Supposedly Well

    So Hard to Write Any Paper of Writing at All
    In Master’s Level Courses At School And Even

    Through the Age of 40 So Hard to Even Write

    An Original Paragraph For A Bowling Center

    New Letter i Sent to the Local NewsPaper

    Where Katrina Worked

    And Truly Only Changed

    The Scores of Tournaments
    And the Such As A Template

    i Had No Creative ability to Change

    For Something New in Essence to Read
    Except for the NuMBeRS mY FRiEnD Oh
    The NuMBeRS mY FRiEnD And Even into

    My Forties i Just Couldn’t Find a Word to Say
    To Anyone At Work All Day Through Hours of
    Meetings With Peers and Bosses to, to Muster

    Up Anything to Say At all Sure i Could Solve

    Problems with Information Technology,
    Finance, And Other Systemizing

    Ways of Life Yet the Social

    Empathic Expressions

    So Lost Overall

    To me Both in Speech
    and Writing Known as a
    Man of Few Words Who Had
    Encyclopedic Knowledge of Facts
    And Figures to Solve Problems with
    A Brain Assessed As A Frigging Computer
    For What i Ended up Working On Most in Work

    Taking Away So Much of the Human of Me then..

    Yet True i Was More Social in High School As it was
    More oF A Village of Peers then Some As Strange as me HAha..

    Likely With Asperger’s Syndrome on the Autism Spectrum too Just
    No Diagnosis For the Odd of Folks Like Us then Well Anyway Lovely

    Poem Dear Rue

    You Surely Have

    A Gift in Terms

    of Endearment

    For Expressing Eternal

    Love And i Do Hope You

    Still Have This Always in Your LiFe mY FRiEnD..:)
