SARAKTI JAAYE HAI RUKH SE (AHISTA)-GHAZAL

Lyrics & Chords

Ghazal written by Ameer Minai

Popularized by Jagjit Singh
Here is my rendition/version.

sarakatii jaaye hai rukh se naqaab ahista ahista (sarakna=slide; rukh=face; naqaab=veil)
(Sliding away from the face is the cover, very slowly)

nikaltaa aa rahaa hai aaftaab ahista ahista (aaftab=moon)
(Coming into vision is the moon, very slowly)

(1) jawaan hone lage jab wo to hamse kar liyaa pardaa
(When she entered youthfullness, then she hid behind the veil)

hayaa yakalaKht aayii aur shabaab ahista ahista (shabab=youth)
(Suddenly appeared modesty/shame and youthfullness, very slowly)

(2) shabefurkat kaa jaagaa hun farishton ab to sone do (shab=night; furkat=separation)
(Since the night of separation, I am awake, angels [of death] let me sleep now)

kabhi fursat mein kar lenaa hisaab ahista ahista
(Take account of everything later, when you have time, but slowly)

(3) savaalewasl par unko uduu kaa Khauf hai itnaa (wasl=meeting; udu=rival: khauf=fear)
(She has passion for question and answer session but she’s much afraid of the villain)

Dabe honthon se dete hain jawaab aahistaa aahistaa
(She replies with clenched lips, very slowly)

(4) hamaare aur tumhaare pyar men bas fark hai itnaa
(There is just this much difference in my and your love)

idhar to jaldii jaldii hai udhar aahistaa aahistaa
(This side there is a rush but from your side it is slow)

(5) wo bedardi-se sar kaate “ameer” aur main kahuun unse
(She is beheading me, [Ameer] without passion and I am telling her)

huzuur aahistaa aahistaa, janaab ahista ahista
(Your highness! slowly, Your Honor! do it slowly)
