ZINDAGI KA SAFAR

Lyrics & Chords

A beautiful song by Kishore Kumar from the film SAFAR (1970), picturised on Rajesh Khanna, his audience being Sharmila Tagore. Great melancholic and touching music was by Kalyanji-Anandji and the wonderful lyrics were by Indeevar.
Here is my rendition/version.

LYRICS
Zindagi Ka Safar Hai Ye Kaisa Safar
Koi Samjha Nahin Koi Jaana Nahin
Hai Ye Kaisi Dagar Chalte Hain Sab Magar
Koi Samjha Nahin Koi Jaana Nahin

Zindagi Ko Bahut Pyaar Hamne Kiya
Maut Se Bhi Mohabbat Nibhaaenge Ham
Rote Rote Zamaane Mein Aaye Magar
Hanste Hanste Zamaane Se Jaaenge Ham
Jaaenge Par Kidhar Hai Kise Ye Khabar
Koi Samjha Nahin Koi Jaana Nahin

Aise Jeevan Bhi Hain Jo Jiye Hi Nahin
Jinko Jeene Se Pehle Hi Maut Aa Gayi
Phool Aise Bhi Hain Jo Khile Hi Nahin
Jinko Khilne Se Pehle Fiza Kha Gai
Hai Pareshaan Nazar Thak Gaye Chaaraagar
Koi Samjha Nahin Koi Jaana Nahin

MEANING

Zindagi Ka Safar Hai Ye Kaisa Safar (safar=journey)
(Life is a journey, what kind of a journey is it?)
Koi Samjha Nahin Koi Jaana Nahin
(No one understands it, no one knows it)
Hai Ye Kaisi Dagar Chalte Hain Sab Magar (dagar=path, route)
(What kind of path is it, but everybody passes by it)
Koi Samjha Nahin Koi Jaana Nahin

Zindagi Ko Bahut Pyaar Hamne Kiya
(I have fully loved my life-lived it to the fullest)
Maut Se Bhi Mohabbat Nibhaaenge Ham
(I will show same love to death, when it comes)
Rote Rote Zamaane Mein Aaye Magar
(Crying, I entered this world)
Hanste Hanste Zamaane Se Jaaenge Ham
(Laughingly I will leave this world)
Jaaenge Par Kidhar Hai Kise Ye Khabar
(But leave for where, who knows?)
Koi Samjha Nahin Koi Jaana Nahin

Aise Jeevan Bhi Hain Jo Jiye Hi Nahin
(Some lives are such, they are hardly lived)
Jinko Jeene Se Pehle Hi Maut Aa Gayi
(Death overtakes before such lives are fully led)
Phool Aise Bhi Hain Jo Khile Hi Nahin
(There are flowers which have not blossomed)
Jinko Khilne Se Pehle Fiza Kha Gai (Fiza=wind)
(which are destroyed by winds before blossoming)
Hai Pareshaan Nazar Thak Gaye Chaaraagar (chaaragar=healer, doctor)(pareshan=distressed)
I am distressed, my eyes are tired
Koi Samjha Nahin Koi Jaana Nahin
