Jaane kya chahe mann baawra…

jaane kya chaahe mann baanwra
aankhiyan mere saawan chalaa

saghan aanchal sada hor hove
sajan ansuvan mein kya jor hove
kya jor hove, apne jiya pe
mann to mara ye manchala

jaane kya chaahe mann baanwra
aankhiyan mere saawan chalaa

pawan purva mein yun udta jaave
badra chanda se mann judta jaave
aave hawa ka, jhonka phir aisa
toote patang ki dor sa

jaane kya chaahe mann baanwra
aankhiyan mere saawan chalaa

– Jaane kya from ‘Pyaar ke side-effects’

    HI frend!!!!

    A gr8 heart touching song with gr8 lyrix and music

  7. “pawan purva mein yun udta jaave
    badra chanda se mann judta jaave
    aave hawa ka, jhonka phir aisa
    toote patang ki dor sa”

    my heart glides in this beautiful eastern wind,
    just like a cloud flies and embraces the moon,
    alas! suddenly a strong gale comes
    and like a broken kite, i am again alone….

    hope this helps a bit…… beautiful song…although i know whay it means, it’s difficult to translate it , let’s leave that to poets 🙂

  8. pallavi says:

    awesome song..its beautiful..wish iknew what it meant..

  9. akshay says:

    saghan aanchal sada hor hove
    sajan ansuvan mein kya jor hove
    kya jor hove, apne jiya pe
    mann to mara ye manchala

    i guess the meaning is this:
    wish aanchal(english people dont use dupattas) is more(hor hove=should be more)
    o lover,what power do tears have
    what control do they have,over the heart
    my mind is dynamic(moved)

  10. varun agrawal says:

    hey akshay, that’s great ..
    but are you sure it’s ‘aanchal’ and not ‘anchal’… sounds anchal to me…

  11. This song has left me spellbound and inexpressive . Awesome!

  20. Dhiraj says:

    It’s not ‘sada hor hove’, It is ‘sarabore hove’ which means something in excess or ‘puri tarah se doob jana’.

  21. Atit says:

    beautiful song beautiful lyrics beautiful voice

    toote patang ki dor sa…

  31. Manish says:

    its grt song.
    however there is slight correction
    saghan aanchal sada hor hove should be

    सघन, अचल सराबोर होवे
    सजन, असुवन में क्या जोर होवे

    which means
    O beloved, the whole earth has become wet with the force of tears.

  32. hiren says:

    this is such a nice song. i like this song so much. i like zubeen ,the singer.what a great singer he is. i love his voice.

    Abhishek, good work! But it should be ‘oh we… can’t be through’ not ‘only,…’ 🙂

    & Manish is spot on! It means ‘The whole earth will be drenched, that beloved, is the power in tears.

    Hi,
    Thanks for posting the nice song. But I really have read the lyrics of this song in some site which I, unfortunately, dont remember. As per my recollection, the lyrics of this song is only a part of the complete song. The original song has four stanzas and this song has only 2. Can you or anybody please tell me the link or paste the full song?

    Thanks,

    Hi i hear this song many-many times. This songs is touches to my heart. This is one of the best song in the bollywood.

  72. Jamie says:

    I have a wonderful experience to look back, I’m a Hyderabadi and was in Bangalore for studies.. Was a big time Fm radio addict then… I heard this song like many times.. But each time i heard it, it wud be da last paragraph and da song wud get over 🙁 Once as i took a road towards my room all alone in da evening… I happened to listen to this song from da beginning until then i dint know the singer, which movie it was from nothing… It was a saturday evening and da RJ announced the song and I was waiting patiently.. Finally the song started and it was like wowwww this was in the year 2006 i suppose. Adding to all that there was rain… Ahhh wat a feeling it was…

    And ya 1 more thing about me is that Im a singer too… I returned to Hyderabad and I heard there was Indian Idol Auditions yet to begin… I jumped to da occasion and sang this song and was thru to da nex round…. Can neva forget this song….

    saghal achal means……

  78. gaurav says:

    that good a song that even if you dont undrstans the lyrics . it hs the power to enthrall you. thanks for all the information.

  79. Savita says:

    Wow, this just goes to show how much we’ve lost in touch with our language. I’ve always loved this song, but never knew what it meant.

    I found this site about 20 minutes after I started searching. Not too many people seem to know the lyrics of the first stanza. Thanks to Manish (July 18th, 2007) who translated it !!

  80. Mena says:

    Dear All,
    I had been searching for the meaning of this song…although I am well-versed in Hindi/Urdu/Gujarati (at least I think I am even though I mainly grew up in USA, thanks to my deep interest and love for the language and music of my Motherland). Seems that the lyrics of this song is reminiscent of bhojpuri/rajasthani language (but that’s my opinion). I’ve attempted to translate the true essense of the meaning of the song, although for certain words and the placement/context in which written, there is no english equivalent…the song conveys deep pangs of love and longing…

    jaane kya chaahe mann baanwara
    jaane kya chaahe mann baanwara
    (unknown it is …what this crazy, curious, roaming, indecisive (in love)…heart/mind wants/craves/longs for)

    akhiyan mere saawan chala
    akhiyan mere saawan chala
    (tears fall from the eyes as rain heavily pouring down)

    ….

    saghan aanchal sarabor hovey
    (don’t know the first line; think it means, the veil, duppatta, a very sensual covering worn by women, is soaked with tears )

    sajan aansuwan mein kya jor hovey
    (On my love/beloved, what is it that pulls/tugs these tears)…think the the word ‘Jor’ in context means a tug here and not ‘power’

    kya jor hovey
    (what is the pull…the tug…)
    apne jiya pe
    (on my heart..my soul….my everything…)..jiya is more than heart here…it means, my beating, feeling living heart)

    mann to maarha yeh manchala
    (that the heart has helplessly yet defeated )

    jaane kya chaahe mann baanwara
    jaane kya chaahe mann baanwara

    ankhiyan mere saawan chala…
    ankhiyan mere saawan chalasssssssssss…

    pawan purwa mein youn udta jaavey
    (the easterly winds come and carry away with it—-the ‘mann’…mind, he heavy heart in love and longing…)or the heavy heart/mind, flys away with the easterly winds…
    –conveying that the heavy heart is here and there, not finding relief or solace…

    badra chanda se mann judta jaavey
    (Badra means rain clouds and chanda means moon – the heavy heart and the rain clouds, the moon are one)…rain clouds, the feeling they carry with it, heaviness, gloom, etc. and chanda, the moon, also symbolic of moods and changes of moods…so it means, that the heavy mind/heart identifies/connects/merges now with the rain clouds and the moon…

    aavey hawa ka
    jhonka phir aisa
    tootey patang ki dor sa
    (the breeze, or the wind blows again and takes with it my mind, like the broken string of a kite..without direction, floating….aimlessly…without direction…)

    “feeling blue…”obviously this song is full of melancholy and just plain sad! But love it for those very reasons….it truly does tug at the heart, doesn’t it?
    Hope you guys like it…I just had to translate it in my way… 🙂

  81. kavya kumar says:

    its jus a wonderful song.thanx for t lyrics:)

  82. salman says:

    best song of the RESPECTED by Mr.Zuben ALI, i love this song

  83. princess says:

    saghan aanchal sada hor hove
    sajan ansuvan mein kya jor hove

    seas and moutains remain unmoved,
    do my tears have enough strength to move you?

  84. Mannu khan says:

    At last i am being able to find the correct lyrics of this heart capturing song….specially the female version. i just cudn’t figure out the word after… my heart……..cant be true . thank u guys for providing me the correct lyrics… now i can sing it more confidently in my bathroom :)))))))))))))) Zubin rocks !!!
