I have made her agree .. शादी के लिये रज़ामंद कर ली


Keep her ready with mahendi .. मेंहदी लगा के रखना
This mahendi will color you (forever).. मेंहदी है रचने वाली


My banno's ( bride to be) baraat will arrive .. मेरी बन्नो की आयेगी बरात
The barat of my lord will come .. राजा की आयेगी बरात
My dear sister will be a bride .. मेरी प्यारी बहनिया बनेगी दुल्हनिया

Barat arrival

Also see Hindi dance songs

They will come and take her .. ले जायेंगे, ले जायेंगे
Today, my friend is getting married .. आज मेरे यार की शादी है
O spring breeze, sprinkle flowers .. बहारो फूल बरसाओ

Harassing the baratis

OK, take the money, now give back the shoes .. जूते दे दो पैसे लेलो
Sasural is like marigold flowers ..ससुराल गेंदा फूल

This is an example of the songs that ridicules the baraatis, for example "Jodi Ye Jachdi Nai video" in Gadar 2001.

Bridal singer

My bindi will shine .. बिंदिया चमकेगी
Your eyes dark with kajal .. कजरा रे [9]
O my bright faced! ... ऐ मेरी ज़ोहरा जबीं
With stars wrapped around you .. बदन पे सितारे लपटे हुए
This face shining like the moon .. ये चाँद सा रोशन चेहरा
Are you full moon .. चौदहवीं का चांद हो

Making a commitment for life

When something will go wrong, ... keep me company .. जब कोई बात बिगड़ जाये
In your eyes, I am worthy of love .. आप की नज़रों ने समझा
If you promise to keep me company .. तुम अगर साथ देने का वादा करो
What you have promised, you will have to .. जो वादा किया वो निभाना पड़ेगा
O my compaion, what will be life without you .. ओ साथी रे
May I not take the road, where your home is not .. जिस गली में तेरा घर

The phere

Until the seven rounds have been taken .. जब तक ना हों फेरे सात

The Joining

Sometimes I think, you were made for me .. कभी कभी मेरे दिल में
My beloved friend, so enticing .. मेरा यार दिलदार बड़ा सोणा
Don't look at me .. नैन सौं नैन नाही मिलाओ


मुबारक़ हो तुमको ये शादी तुम्हारी

Take your daddy's belessings .. बाबुल की दुआएं लेती जा
The singer Rafi sang it with a personal perspective on the eve of his own daughter's wedding[10]
These lanes and squares, .. you will not come here again .. ये गलियां ये चौबारा
The bride leaves, wearing a three colored dress.. दुल्हन चली, ओ पहन चली तीन रंग की चोली
  • Pi Ke Ghar Aaj Pyari Dulhaniya Chali Mother India 1957 (video search)
  • Babul ka ye ghar behna ek dinka thikana hai Daata 1989 ([1]) बाबुल का ये घर बहना एक दिन का ठिकाना है
(Brother is saying to his sister in a sad mood) This father's home is just a day's stay, my sister.

Arrival of the newly weds

I have started to forget my daddy's country.. मैं तो भूल चली बाबुल का देस


I have nine bangles in each of my hands .. मेरे हाथों में नौ नौ चूड़ियां
The day has come, you will meet your beloved .. बालम से मिलन होगा
घूंघट नहीं खोलूंगी
  • Ye haseen vaadiyaan, ye khula aasmaan.. aagaye hum kahaan, ae mere jaanejaa.. Roja 1992 ([2])
ये हसीं वादियाँ.. ये खुला आसमाँ.. आगये हम कहाँ, ऐ मेरे जानेजा..

Together forever

Let there be a new house .. इक बँगला बने न्यारा
Come, my beloved, come .. चलो दिलदार चलो
Now my dreams and yours, ate the same color .. तेरे मेरे सपने, अब एक रंग हैं
When I will be 60, and you 55 ... हम जब होंगे साठ साल के
For many many eons, both of us .. हम तुम युग युग से

  10. फिर उस गीत का एक-एक लफ्ज दिल की गहराइयों से छूकर निकलता है जैसे फिल्म 'नीलकमल' का यह गीत- 'बाबुल की दुआएं लेती जा, जा तुझको सुखी संसार मिले।' जब मैं यह रिकॉर्डिंग करवा रहा था, तो चश्मे-तसव्वुर (कल्पना दृष्टि) में अपनी बेटी की शादी, जो दो दिन बाद हो रही थी, उसका सारा मार देख रहा था। मैं उन्हीं लम्हों के जबात की रौ में बह गया कि कैसे मेरी बेटी डोली में बैठ कर मुझसे जुदा हो रही है और आंसू मेरी आंखों से बहने लगे। उसी कैफियत में मैंने यह गाना रिकॉर्ड कर दिया। मैंने इस गाने में रोने की एक्टिंग नहीं की थी, हकीकतन आंसू मेरे दिल की पुकार बन कर, आवाज के साए में ढल कर आ गए थे। (उर्दू पत्रिका 'शमां', 1980 से साभार)
