Aa Ve Sajjan

Aa Ve Sajjan

Transliteration of Punjabi Poem Aa Ve Sajjan

Aa Ve Sajjan

(Amrit Pal Singh ‘Amrit’)

Har Har Sajjan Mera Preetam Raaya.
Koyee Aan Milaavai Mere Praan Jeevaaya.

(Guru Granth Sahib Ji, Mahla 4, page 94)

Aa Ve Sajjan, Aa Ve Sajjan.

Saanoo Gal Naal La Ve Sajjan.

Tere Baajhon Barhaa Roye Haan,
Hor Na Injh Tarhpaa Ve Sajjan.

Saade Haal Toon Aape Jaanein,
Aapnee Gal Sunaa Ve Sajjan.

Gam Pee Pee Ke Mar Challe Haan,
Amrit-Boond Pilaa Ve Sajjan.

Tere Daras Pyaase Haan Ji,
Mukhrhe Ton Ghund Laah Ve Sajjan.

Tere Baanjhon Kaahda Jeena?
Sabh Noon Eh Samjhaa Ve Sajjan.

Mandir Vich Ke Masjid Vich Aein?
Saade Saahmane Aa Ve Sajjan.

‘Chaudaanh Sau Teeh’ Toon Khat Ghalle,

Aape Aan Sunaa Ve Sajjan.

(There are 1430 pages in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji).

‘Hold On’ – ‘Ruko…’

I have listened to this song ‘Hold On’. It is really a great song. Whenever I listen to this song, I find myself in tears. The video of this song is wonderful where real victims are shown. For those who do not understand English, I have tried to write its Punjabi version.

Punjabi version

Ruko Zaraa…

Eh Sansaar Hai Rukkha Jeha
Par Tuhaanu Jaan Di Lorh Na Koi
Tusi Ho Udaas
Tusi Mahsoos Karde Ho Iklaapa
Te, Lagda Hai Injh
Ke Koi Na Karda Tuhaada Khyaal.
Tuhaadi Maata Ji Chale Gye
Te Pita Ji Han Maarde
Bardaasht Na Kar Sakde Tusi Eh Dard.

Par
Tuhaade Vaang Hi
Asi Saare Hi Haan Lahoo-Luhaan Ik Traanh
Asi Vi Langhna Hai Ehna Haalaat Ton.

Ruko…
Je Tusi Jaan Di Ichha Karde Ho.
Ruko…
Sabh Theek Ho Jaanda Hai Aakhir.

Tusi Aakhde Ho
Tuhaade Din Han Barhe Lambe.
Te Tusi Aakhde Ho
Ke Sau Nahi Sakde Tusi Raataan Nu Bilkul Vi.
Ruko…

Te Tuhaanu Nahi Pataa Kee Bhaal Rahe Ho Tusi
Par Tusi Hun Jeena Nahi Chaahnde.
Te Tuhaanu Nahi Pataa Kis Da Intzaar Kar Rahe Ho Tusi,
Par Tusi Hun Jeena Nah Chaahnde.

Par
Tuhaade Vaang Hi
Asi Saare Hi Haan Lahoo-Luhaan Ik Traanh
Asi Vi Langhna Hai Ehna Haalaat Ton.

Ruko…
Je Tusi Jaan Di Ichha Karde Ho.
Ruko…
Sabh Theek Ho Jaanda Hai Aakhir.

Talaash Band Na Karo
Tusi Bas Ik Kadam Hi Door Ho.
Bhaal Karna Na Chhaddo
(Talaash) Aje Khatam Nahi Hoyee.
Ruko…

Kee Bhaalde Ho Tusi?
Kis Da Intzaar Kar Rahe Ho Tusi?
Kee Samajhde Ho Tusi Ke Kee Kar Rahe Ho Tusi Merey Naal?
Agge Vadho…
Kis Da Intzaar Kar Rahe Ho Tusi?

Ruko…
Je Tusi Jaan Di Ichha Karde Ho.
Ruko…
Sabh Theek Ho Jaanda Hai Aakhir.

Talaash Band Na Karo
Tusi Bas Ik Kadam Hi Door Ho.
Bhaal Karna Na Chhaddo
(Talaash) Aje Khatam Nahi Hoyee.
Ruko…

‘Oh’

Oh‘ is a poem written by me. The Punjabi pronoun ‘Oh’ means’ ‘s/he’.

Oh
(Amrit Pal Singh ‘Amrit’)

Phullaan Dee Mehak See Us Vich
Komal See Barha Oh
Us Noon Vekhiya
Taan Man Nirmal Ho Gya
Pyaar Umarh Aaya Seene Vich
Sohna See Oh Barha.

Oh Jadon Muskuraaya
Mere Andar Dee Dur-Bhaavna
Mitt Gyee Sadaa Lyee
Main Mantar-Mudadh Ho Ke
Us Val Takda Reha
Pyaara Lagda See Oh Mainu.

Jadon Us De Sundar Honthh Hiley
Taan Suraan De Rang Bhikharey Mere Saahmaney
Sangeet Us Da –
Meree Aatma Maan-dee Rahee
Us Pal Oh
Dev-Doot Jeha Lageya.

Main Jadon Us Nu Aavaaz Dittee
Oh Mere Kol Aa Ke Baithh Gya
Meree Har Gal Noon Dhyaan Naal Sun-da
Oh Dost Lageya Aapna Mainu.

Main Jadon Us De Palle Noon Chhoheya
Taan Mithhi Jehee Peerh Naal –
Sareer Kamb Uthheya Mera
Meree Rooh Nasheaayee Gyee
Oh Mera Mehboob See Hun.

Komal Jehe Haththaan Naal
Us Ne Chhoheya Mainu Jadon
Mere Andar Noor Hee Noor Bhar Gya
Main Us Val Takeya
Bas Takda Hee Reha
Mere Andar Bhareya Noor
Achaanak
Mere Jism Noon Raushan Karan Lagga
Main Apna Sir
Us De KadmaanTe Dhar Ditta
Oh Taan Rabb See Mera.

Oh

‘Ichhabal De Chanaar Te Noor-Jahan’

Ichhabal De Chanaar Te Noor-Jahan’ is a small, but wonderful Punjabi poem by Bhai Sahib Bhai Vir Singh Ji. ‘Ichhabal’ is a lake in Jammu and Kashmir State in India. ‘Chanaar’ is the local name for tree of Platanum Orientalis (Poplar). ‘Noor-Jahan’ (Light of the World) is a personal name. Thus, ‘Ichhabal De Chanaar Te Noor-Jahan’ means ‘Poplars of Ichhabal and Noor-Jahan’.

A beautiful lady comes and touches the poet. Now, the poet, Bhai Vir Singh Ji, shares his emotions in this poem. The true love, the touch of true love is something totally different to ordinary physical intimacy. The excitement of Noorjahan’s touch is different. Other beautiful people are nothing. ‘Noor-Jahan’ is great. ‘Noor-Jahan’ is someone special. ‘Noor-Jahan’ is sacred. ‘Noor-Jahan’ is innocent. ‘Noor-Jahan’ is not merely a ‘thing of beauty’, but a ‘divine being’ who should be worshipped.

Ichhabal De Chanaar Te Noor Jahaan
-Kisey Sundree De Hathh Laun Te-

Tere Jeheeaan Kyee Ver Aa
Hathh Asaan Noon Laaye,
Pyaar Lain Noon Jee Kar Aavey
Uchhaal Kaleja Khaaye, –
Par Oh Pyaar Suyaad Na Vasda
Hor Kisey Hathh Andar,
Noor Jahaan! Jo Chhuh Teree Ne
Saanoon Laad Ladaaye.

(Poet: Bhai Sahib Bhai Vir Singh Ji)
