Jedike Phirai Ankhi

Jedike phirai ankhi
Ke jena balichhe daki
Britha bela baye jai
Jib kata asahai
Nayan mudiya rakhi
Aro ki shunite baki
Britha bela baye jai
Kena eta nirupai


Whichever way I cast my glance
I hear someone whispering.
Time is passing by,
All human beings hopeless and helpless.
I keep my eyes shut.
I have nothing more to hear.
Time is passing by.
Alas, I know not why and how
I am so helplessly and totally lost.
