Kaun Aaega Yahan Koi Na Aaya Hoga

कौन आएगा यहाँ कोई न आया होगा। (Kaun Aayega Yahan Koi Na Aaya Hoga) - Who Will Come,No One Would Come Here - Kaif Bhopali

Kaif Bhopali is known for his song 'Chalo Dildar Chalo Chand Ke Paar Chalo' in 1972 movie Pakeezah. 'Kaun Aaega Yahan Koi Na Aaya Hoga' is one of his famous ghazal. The poet has described the emptiness in his life, the loneliness he is experiencing which one of the couplet(3) suggest was due to marriage of his daughter. I have tried to translate it here for your understanding. For elaborate understanding of this ghazal visit : Kaif's Kaun Aaya Hai Yahan


कौन आएगा यहाँ कोई न आया होगा,
मेरा दरवाज़ा हवाओं ने हिलाया होगा। 
Kaun Aaega Yahan Koi Na Aaya Hoga,
Mera Darwaza Hawaon Ne Hilaya Hoga.

Who will come,no one would come here,
Winds would have shook the door here.

दिल-ऐ-नादां न धड़क ऐ दिल-ऐ-नादां न धड़क,
कोई ख़त ले के पड़ोसी के घर आया होगा। 
Dil-E-Nadan Na Dhadak Ae Dil-E-Nadan Na Dhadak,
Koi Khat Le Ke Padosi Ke Ghar Aaya Hoga.

Don't beat my naive heart, O naive heart don't beat,
Someone would have brought a letter to neighbors on our street.

इस गुलिस्तां की यही रीत है ऐ शाख़-ऐ-गुल,
तूने जिस फूल को पाला वो पराया होगा। 
Is Gulistan Ki Yahi Reet Hai Ae Shakh-Ae-Gul,
Tune Jis Phool Ko Pala Wo Paraya Hoga.

O flower laden branch this is the way of this garden,
The flower you have nurtured would leave this garden.

दिल की किस्मत ही में लिख़ा था अँधेरा शायद ,
वरना मस्जिद का दिया किसने बुझाया होगा। 
Dil Ki Kismat Hi Mein Likha Tha Andhera Shayad,
Warna Masjid Ka Diya Kisna Bujhaya Hoga.

Perhaps darkness was written in the heart's destiny,
Else who would extinguish lamp in mosque's vicinity.

गुल से लिपटी हुई तितली को गिराकर देखो,
आँधियों तुमने दरख्तों को गिराया होगा। 
Gul Se Lipti Hui Titli Ko Girakar Dekho,
Aandhiyon Tumne Darakhton Ko Giraya Hoga.

Try to bring down butterfly wrapped around a flower,
Winds you would have fallen trees from your power.

खेलने के लिए बच्चे निकल आये होंगे,
चाँद अब उस की गली में उतर आया होगा। 
Khelne Ke Liye Bachche Nikal Aaye Honge,
Chand Ab Us Ki Gali Mein Utar Aaya Hoga.

Children would have come out to play,
Now moon would have arrived in her lane to stay.

'कैफ़' परदेस में मत याद करो अपना मकां,
अब के बारिश ने उसे तोड़ गिराया होगा। 
'Kaif' Pardes Mein Mat Yaad Karo Apna Makan,
Ab Ke Barish Ne Use Tod Giraya Hoga.

'Kaif' don't remember your house in foreign land,
This year's monsoon would have initiate its disband.
